Why is this the 4th most popular response among Trump fans to these issues?
It's asinine. We are all responsible, as Americans, for what our government does. Pointing out and standing against wrongdoing does not merit this trite innuendo repeated incessantly.
To turn it around on you to prove the point, why don't you go sleep in the cages and take care of the kids yourself, as you're so certain of the "righteousness" of the Trump Adminsitrations actions, eh?
Works both ways, huh.
And I make no argument as to ratio of good to bad. Tell me, if you are given a bowl of M&Ms and are told that three out of that bowl are deadly and will kill you if you eat them, will you start eating? It's only three...
If we add something, especially something as extravagant as providing modern comfortable housing
Fair enough. So you do agree in principle that we should disincentivize illegal border crossings?
Then why is there over a year's backlog for judges to simply hear a request for asylum? Is that not the definition of overwhelmed?
Your posts seem to indicate otherwise. So far, all of your suggestions would favor an open border, except of course where you state otherwise without an explanation. Perhaps you are simply unaware of the scope of what is happening.
Where did I give that impression?

It has more to do with your lazy content than anything, but if it thinking that way makes you feel better about your intellectual laziness then go for it.
I haven't seen an original thought from you in months, just constant partisan hack-speak.
You cant save everyone. The only way to fix this issue is to IMPROVE the standards of living in their country of origin. Not bring so many of them here that our country turns into the place they came from.

How so? You said we don't have any money left to spend. If that's the case how are we going to afford to pay for a new branch of our already overbloated military?
That analogy doesn't work .
there are bad people born american mixed in with the rest of us already. Do we call all of america unsafe because of that?
A few murders do not poison all of society.
Something extravagant like a 2000 mile 10 foot high wall? Use the tax money that was going to pay for the wall for the housing. And yes some government spending needs to be cut and that tax money put to better use.
I think a great way to do that is to incentives legal entry.
Trump just sent a much of prosecutors to help fix that issue. And if what he does works will you admit that you are over exaggerating this part? Because if that part can be fixed just by sending in some more personal then they arn't as overwhelmed as you say.
My suggestions have been if effort to find a better way of treating people that just want to be free and happy.
I never suggested that they just be let in with no vetting as much as they want.
Seems to be your main answer to the current problem. From what I gather from your post you feel as though the wall would solve the Immediate problem giving us time to fix the rest. While we wait for the wall to be built we should be looking at other options shouldn't we?

So you want facilities built.
That will house families until they are granted entry or not.
How are these not detention facilities in and of themselves?
Learn to think for yourself.
