There is an answer to this, and we need to contact our representatives and demand they take action. Process, treat and immediately return the immigrants pursuant to the laws in place. Insist Mexico police it's borders. Sanction the countries sending their citizens. Secure our borders immediately. This administration is not allowing our border patrol to police the borders. The majority of our border patrol are dealing with the newly arrived immigrants. 50,000+ have come, three times that are expected if we continue to do nothing. Legal immigrants are welcome and children who are victims can be treated, processed and returned, but the countries that are just telling their citizens to run to our borders because they will be able to stay need to be stopped.

Of course, this would require a turnaround in policy by our administration, and that is likely not to happen willingly. Contact your representatives.

They are here illegally--and they are aliens. So call them what they are, illegal aliens.

I don't care from whence they came--Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, et al....they have no right to be here, and we should not have to foot the bill for this!
Plus our written immigration laws (you know, the ones everyone ignore), call them "illegal aliens." I am sticking to the correct term, as officially cited.

This had been put up, apparently, by the coyotes who profit from the transport fees. It certainly was an organized plan, but not by any US governmental agency. How do you know that rumors of these "permissos" are not similarly promoted by people in those countries for financial gain?
I have spent decades in Marin County and can guarantee this is balderdash. Perhaps in the vineyards up north, but not in Marin County proper. Marinites don't like to spend their money on freeloaders. Those signs in Mexico must be long gone by now.
