Makes you wonder.....
Because the path to Key West is VERY difficult to penetrate anymore. The Coasties have that area locked up REALLY tight. And if you get caught at sea, you get sent back.

Make it to Mexico, and they can apply for asylum from there.

The American Indians came from Asia. I'm just as "native" in the US as a Cherokee and so on in 2014. Sheesh!

What are you talking about? We allow in over 1 million legal immigrants a year from all over the world.The so-called Native American's ancestors were immigrants also.

We have no more vacancies. This ain't 1850 America, it is 2014 and we are fast running out of resources, space, money, that's why.

They have to be in the US to apply for wet foot/dry foot.

I am so angry at our government. If this was any other country and 2000 plus were illegally crossing our border, a leader would have called out the national guard. This is ethnic "cleansing" of America without a women raped and our government is doing their own number on our 18-26 year old men by sending them off to wars where we don't belong. Then we have PA going to give them drivers licenses, NY is giving them residency documents, CA drivers licenses and CT a sanctuary state. Either we as Americans have to decide if we want open borders or to remain a sovereign. If the American people don't get their act together we are going to be like Iraq in a few years ourselves facing civil war.

Casper, the terrorists ARE here and have been here, they even have training camps in remote parts of the U.S.

And yes, the American people will not gather against this until it is to late.....

It would be nice to keep the sarcasm at bay and take these issues seriously.
