Did you read the first comment on the thread? Lol.


They're invaders.

Invaders take whatever they want.


A caravan comprised of people from three+ different countries, making their way to the US, right before mid-terms. Where have I seen this before?

And they are not going to go through the immigration process are they? They just want to show up and be let in. That's what I have a problem with. If they want to go through the process that Immigrants the world over have gone through to become a legal citizen for a better chance at life economically, more power to them. So long as they are properly vetted.

We don't need people to work minimum wage jobs that's what teenagers are for. Reality is they cost far more than they can contribute. It be at least a decade and often takes the second generation before they can contribute. Problem is education these are not people even remotely ready to take on most jobs. There education runs about equivalent to 5th grade.

When people enter legally their ability to support themselves is taken into account. When my wife immigrated she had to show she could support herself . In fact we were banned from using any public assistance. However migrants become eligible for food stamps and education. Having spent about 40k to get the wife her citizenship it amazes me people just jump in.

They are migrant workers and many of them live in the dorms at the wineries. I’m not telling you where I work but yes, I have first hand knowledge and interact with migrant workers every day. They come here to work, some people stay and work all year, other people travel across the state and return at harvest. Some are here legally and most are not.


Is that fair to the ones here legally?

It’s perfectly legal to seek asylum at the border of one has a credible fear.

Interesting question.
Does it matter, if they are all working?

Yes. But what is the credible fear in Guatemala and Honduras?

I doubt the bottom line cares about what’s fair or not.

That's for the officials of the government to decide. Innit?

Doesn't that bother you?

Maybe the ones that went back realized, when given the facts, that they didn't have legitimate claims for asylum. But maybe you are a mind reader. I'm not.

I do know that our laws allow anyone to seek asylum within our borders.


Understand this, the people that have skipped filtering at the Mexican border, are those who did not accept asylum in Mexico or otherwise requested to be sent back home once they knew that the US would not accept them. All those persons, they wanted was to get help and a better life.

The people remaining that insist to reach the US no matter what, are not the good guys.

Are you so dense to not get it?

Give them all they want then, you don't have a clue about how those people thing or will act, and they will get through somehow. This is a dumb conversation phage, you can't get it at all, you are very much out of touch with life outside there

Yes it does i dont think most people even know what legal immigrants go through. Did you know I was interrogated when we applied. We got married because i met her on a trip to the UK. At the time i travelled there frequently. But i was actually accused of a fake marriage so she could get a job at a university.

They asked everything 8ncluding what color was her tooth brush. What shampoo she uses whats her favorite color. Spent 3 hours being interviewed little did i know at the time that was just the start.

No. I'm not dense.

But I do have a nasty habit of looking at more than one side of an issue. And in this case, the law actually is on the side of the migrants. They can legally apply for asylum whether or not their claim is valid. To prevent them from doing so is against the law.
