Yes they are criminals, they crossed the border illegally thus committing an illegal act making them a criminal. No matter how you twist the language, they violated black letter law and committed a crime.

Maybe the ultra-liberal Democratic Las Cruces mayor should of supported our commander and chief and President Donald J Trump.

Hopefully, by the end of the year these many more of these iberal Democratic cities who have mayors who are Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters puppets become as overwhelmed with the illegals they always put before Americans with little to no federal help

These mayors need to understand that not supporting President Trump is the same as an employee not supporting their boss. Many cities get big paychecks from the federal government and their leaders should support President Trump's immigration agenda.

To bad that President Trump is so ethical and coordinating the releases with agencies. If Republicans were as ruthless as Democrats, they would release them all and immediately overwhelm Democratic cities with no federal help.

No better way to bankrupt Democratic cities then to dump desperate illegal alien welfare shoppers by the thousands and let the Democratic mayors running them worry about it.

Hopefully, this is just the beginning and the national treasure that is President and Commander and Chief Donald Trump start overwhelming Democratic cities like they are already doing to Las Cruces.
But I thought he was just “floating” the idea.

Thanks for yet more proof he lied again.

Yes, in the technical and legal aspect, they might have broken the law, but when you have a choice between losing your life or breaking the law, which do you think you would choose? You don't have that concern, because your life is not threatened.

I have no problem with either increased border security or building a more effective barrier along the border with Mexico, my issue is with dehumanizing the people who are fleeing gangs, violence, poverty and corruption in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, problems that started with right wing death squads in the 1980's and military dictatorships that were funded and trained by the Reagan administration.

Iran-Contra anyone?

They didn’t cross the border.
They surrendered to border patrol and are seeking asylum.

The people who are in competition with unskilled migrants and illegal aliens from Latin America are primarily America's working poor. When you claim that migrants/illegal aliens work harder than Americans, you are arguing that America's working poor are lazy. That is an actual slur and it's a measure of how far from its origins the Democratic Party has strayed that this piffle you're spreading is quite common among smug, effete lefties these days.

You ought to be embarrassed. You won't be, but you ought to be.

My friend, They are the ones who bring question to their motives. As I pointed out earlier. They have options and choices, but push to our border. Why? Because they want the USA or nothing. WE do offer up some amazing benefits compared to our southern Neighbors.

On 1 hand we hear from the left that we are too judgmental of Mexico or Panama or many of the countries between us and say El Salvador. Honest hard working people we are told. Don't call those countries **** holes because they aren't. Which is it?

I can tell you this. If I am traveling 1000's of miles on foot with my preteen children, I would opt for a country that was safer than what I left, rather than risk my children lives needlessly. But they want the golden prize and are willing to sacrifice their children to get it.

Many Americans retire to Mexico and Panama. Those places must have something going for them. Better still they also offer similar language and culture. What they don't offer is the freebies that the USA does.

As for the dictatorships under Reagan? I think they started before him, that's why he was conned into granting amnesty for 3 million illegals. The democrats don't hold the moral high ground. Both parties thrive on interfering in other countries. That's why it's so god damned funny that the democrats are worried that the Russians might have interfered in ours. LOL. many of those career democrat politicians had no issue with screwing with Libya, Syria, Yemen, the Sudan and others.

If you ever break the law, I hope you go in front of a judge and tell him you're not concerned with the legal or technical aspect of what you did and then see where and what that gets you.

It is the truth for every single one of the "asylum" seekers. Literally every one of them. Whether they also work is irrelevant.

Well, you're right about something, I'm not.

Honestly, how many of these 120k so-called asylum seekers jumping the fence a month are genuinely fleeing gangs, starvation, etc?

The overwhelming majority I’ve seen are overweight, iPhone carrying folks looking for a job/economic opportunity, using kids as pawns to game our week immigration laws. Every logical person knows this.
