The FY 2014 ceiling for refugee admissions from Latin America and the Caribbean is 5,000. Of these, the vast majority will be Cubans processed through the in-country program.

But then again.. it's not like they even know that statement exsists to begin with and will continue on the path of blissful ignorance and willful disregard to the laws they are sworn to uphold.
Thanks, I didn't know that. I am sure Obama is counting on most Americans not knowing about that ceiling so he can let in 50,000 rather than 5,000. The question is are most of our politicians unaware of this ceiling? If not then why aren't calling Obama's attention to it?

WHAT?!

That thing who's the "POTUS" of the US needs to be stopped. Too; those "kids" getting into that old truck don't look like dirt poor 3rd world people, they kinda remind me more of American kids fixin' to hit the mall and hang out. Sheesh!
On other threads on other forums, concerns have been raised about overpopulation, utilizing finite resources, climate change and problems associated with all of the foregoing. I've even heard it suggested in some circles that it's irresponsible to have many kids - more than 2 or so. Usually, the ones raising these concerns are progressives. No we have a massive influx of people to our country-flooding in.

Where are those concerns now?

Def a real good question there. Word is even the Sierra Club has been gagged by a dude named "Pope" over what you said.
