Didn't say it wasn't happening, just not happening in the way I'm sure the media is portraying it.

How would a unaccompanied child be processed through the immigration system to the next step if they don't do all the steps? I highly doubt there is no sort of council or chaperone with them.

I'm pretty sure no five year old was unaccompanied!

So why the need to post a thread condemning actions that you just agreed might not be accurately represented?

Do you think calling someone a "social justice warrior" is an insult? You anti social justice? What is this thread but a social injustice warrior's complaint?

Wasn’t Mexico supposed to pay for some kind of wall or something?

You're welcome to send as much of your paycheck as you want to them in their home country.

sorry I can't debate anything with an SJW who bases all of their opinions on how they feel and not reality based on facts



The facts are in. US law allows for asylum and refugee victims to seek sanctuary within its borders.


YUP. And if you can show me where in the instructions for gaining asylum, you are told to sneak over the border, I'll join right with you on this. If you can't, then perhaps it's time to pull your head out of that dark smelly place it's at currently.

"Sneaking" past our borders is not proscribed in our refugee/asylum treaties and laws, nor does it adversely affect a person's right to claim asylum.


Affirmative Asylum Processing With USCIS
To obtain asylum through the affirmative asylum process you must be physically present in the United States. You may apply for asylum status regardless of how you arrived in the United States or your current immigration status.

I can just picture an evil white Republican Male judge grilling a sweet little Mexican girl about her immigration.

"Why did you come here? Where are the drugs? Are you MS13!!!!!! Answer me damnit!!!!!!"

"Cookie"

"Send her to the gas chamber!!!!!!"


I literally laughed so hard, I shot soy milk through my nose holes!

"Cookie"

You should draw up the comic for that.

Cool. I'd like to seek "asylum" in Ireland. I sure do love me some redheads and guiness.

I hope the proceedings are recorded/televised/beamed to all the countries south of Texas. Those who are considering coming illegally should think twice...and then NOT do it.

Except that the law was changed recently by this administration.

From a conservative (I think) news source Trump keeps making it harder for people to seek asylum legally

These are not Mexicans, as a rule, but people from farther south.

And from Fox Trump rule changes turn away more asylum seekers

These aren't illegals. They're people who were permitted to APPLY to enter the US. The way they do this (legally) is to show up at our borders and ASK for asylum. Only now a set of new rules is making this harder to do and most efforts are now illegal...

...as these news stories say.

The rules changed and are changing. The ones with kids taken away from them recently are asylum seekers. Illegal immigrants looking for work don't bring kids with them (check any stories about illegal immigrants at the border and you'll see these are people of working age and unencumbered by toddlers and babies.)

F!ck the illegal children! Screw anti-cartel and gang asylum seekers! Screw being a decent human being! Ship them all back and build that expensive wall!!!

What's the point of being American if America doesn't stand for what is right and moral?

Shipping children back, droning striking innocent civilians, supporting proxy wars across the world.

Cool, so if you get caught, your thinking is you can just say "I'm claiming asylum" and you should get away with the illegal part of crossing the border? Laws no longer affect you? No, I think not. The process for seeking asylum is here:
www.uscis.gov...

I think the process should be fixed. But that part isn't up to Trump alone, Congress needs to do a little something first. Or are yo unaware of how that process works as well?

a reply to: Byrd


But in most cases, asylum seekers in the suit report being told that there wasn’t room for them to be processed at the port of entry. And that might very well be true. That’s what CBP agents initially told the few hundred asylum seekers who made up the remnants of the Central American “caravan” when they presented themselves to a port of entry in California — then proceeded to process most of them over the next few days, presumably as resources became available. And it’s the same thing the Trump administration told the Guatemalans on the El Paso bridge.

In many cases, though, it really does seem like ports of entry simply don’t have room to hold all the people who come in seeking asylum while they’re initially processed.


I did not see in your source what law was changed, what it used to be, and what the law is now. I was also not aware a President can even change a law.

A PRESIDENT CANNOT . . .
make laws.
