“It seems to me there are more people coming now than there have been in the last couple of years, and the flow is increasing,” said John W. Meyer, a Houston immigration lawyer hired by Hernandez to process his visa.

Rise in asylum claims

Meanwhile, many Mexicans in border towns wracked by violence are crossing international bridges and requesting asylum. “We have seen an increase in the number of asylum claims at our ports of entry, and this is one factor among a number that we are seeing as part of the situation along the border,” said Mike Friel, spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. In El Paso, asylum claims by Mexican citizens have increased from 12 in fiscal year 2005 to 80 last year, according to CBP records.
“We’re seeing complete families fleeing from our sister city Juarez. They are middle-class business people. ... Their loved ones are being kidnapped, and they are asking extremely high amounts of money,” said Elvia Garcia, outreach coordinator for the Paso Del Norte Civil Rights Project in El Paso.



Garcia said other nonprofit legal agencies in El Paso have been inundated with calls from hundreds of Juarez residents who have crossed the border on tourist visas and now want to seek asylum.

At least this isn't a case of importing poverty, and probably not all of them are Democratic voters.

Asylum is even better than welfare. An individual seeking asylum can get up to $2,500 month in government handouts and doesn't even have to wait for the birth of a baby.

It runs out after a while. My ex wife is an iranian refugee,... she qualified because she was a religious minority that was being persecuted. Her family's not raking in the money.

If they're being attacked in their country by their own countrymen, and their family members are being abducted on Mexican soil by other Mexicans ... why can't they get help in their OWN country?!

What, Mexico doesn't have Policemen? Mexico also doesn't have a Government?
I don't get why the solution always seems to be "Let's hop the border to the US and they'll take care of us!"

For Pete's sake. It's like NO ONE is doing the math! We have x-amount of land, x-amount of jobs, x-amount of natural resources & food. Our own LEGAL US-BORN citizens (not including anchor babies in this count of AMERICANS) are having less than 2 children and yet all of these freeloaders just jump on over here & breed like bunnies and overtax our system.

Where does it end? It can't continue keeping this pace. If it does there will be NO jobs, NO food, NO water, NO land ... then the freeloaders will go back to their countries of origin and wait for us to fix things AGAIN (like we always do) and then as soon as it's fixed again, they'll just start the train all over again.

Rinse and Repeat.

When is Government going to get a clue?

There are bills pending right now (which I posted info on in another thread) that seek to eliminate birthright citizenship among illegal aliens. I urge everyone that's tired of this nonsense to contact their local Reps and ask them to co-sponsor the bill.

Enough is enough already!

Just another ploy to enter . Soon they will join the other non-assimulating latinos in our streets .

Our leaders are commiting treason on their people and nation ,imo. They refuse to protect our borders and fight to give anesty to every third world nation on earth by way of visas, permits, grants and passports over-stays .

Trillions of dollars go to care for these every year . While we go broke they keep inviting in hundreds of millions poverty stricken .

After " IMMINGRATION REFORM " AMERICANS WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER VOTE ! Third world will be majority and vote for more benefits .
