Gaps in a border fence are not legal ports of entry.
Economic hardship is not a reason for asylum.
You can scream, shout and have all the false moral outrage you want, it just makes you look simple-minded or a liar.
If you vote for Trump we can't be friends
And I don't give a good god-damn if it's a misdemeanor or a felony, it's breaking the effing law!
I am so sick of you open border types!

So the swarm over the border illegally and their real hope is to never have to try declaring asylum. How do they live in this country, do you suppose, without things like ID? Hmmm? In order to work legally, you have to have things like a social security number, niceties like that. Things they have to steal.
Identity theft is *not* a small crime.

I proudly embrace my membership in the old folk's club. One of the things the old folks in my day taught me was "never trust the government".
I worked for the Federal government, I was active in the military, and I presently work for the State. I have never been lulled and I sure as hell never felt secure or felt that our system of government was concrete.
I will admit that my generation made the mistake of thinking that if we provided for our children and gave them all the things that we never had, that their lives would be better. We didn't realize until it was too late, that the struggle we fought to keep our heads above water, and the sacrifices we made for our children, is what made us strong and gave us purpose. By working so our children didn't have to, has not turned out the way we had hoped.
It is so easy for people to blame Trump for the ills of our country but our country was in trouble long before Trump, and there is no light at the end of the tunnel, as long as we wait for a person in the White House to rescue us.
We note that this passage means that ORR made some effort to ascertain the status of children placed with sponsors and were unable to determine where some 1,475 of those children were, because those sponsors were unreachable by telephone or didn’t respond. This doesn’t mean those children are “missing” in the sense of being outside the home, control, or care of their guardians, but rather that the ORR couldn’t verify their exact whereabouts at the moment.
When a UAC is placed with a sponsor, he or she ceases to be in the custody of the U.S. government and all HHS-provided subsistence — food, shelter, clothing, healthcare and education — ends at that point and the child becomes the responsibility of his or her parent, guardian or sponsor.
