Invaders? Yes, I hated them long before Trump. I even hated them back when Obama was condemning them.

Simple, the policy would be good for America and a political win for our President. The loony left hates American and POTUS.

I've never seen anything like the current climate we have now. It's like people have lost their damn minds. I was too young for the 60's political unrest. The shift in how people are thinking, I don't know, is it really a small vocal minority or what??

I don't know how we got to the point where is America is bad, foreigners are automatically good, our politicians openly pandering to people that are here illegally, I mean a serious serious WTH is going on.

Free college, free this free that, benefits for illegals, the democrats are literally whoring themselves for votes and power.

Repubs aren't much better, at least they don't appear to calling for benefits for people that shouldn't even be in the country in the first place. I'll give them that much.

Well this is a start but will it do any good when their ultimate goal is to get to the US to take advantage of our gullible generosity. This might slow down the caravans and put the coyotes out of work but how will we know if someone follows the new law? They lie now by grabbing some kids and claiming them as their own. They lie about their names to escape arrest warrants in their homelands. They lie about how bad it is at home for them and how much they fear for their lives.



If this new law does get passed the Democrats will just do their best to block it.
My understanding is that it's a matter of semantics. If they "apply" in other nations, currently they are applying for "refugee status". That requires that they do so in the first "safe" country they come to. Once they get into our country it's "asylum".

And you're undoubtedly right, the left will continue their 2 year temper tantrum.

How did you generalize an entire group from one random post on the internet?

This is already the international standard for how asylum works - you go to the first safe country you can. In this case, it's Mexico, which for all its problems, has made tremendous progress over the past 30 years and is now a relatively rich and safe country, particularly compared to the northern triangle of countries.

There is no reason they should be making their way to the United States for asylum. If they wish to try to immigrate to the US under the legal immigration system, for school, financial reasons, etc, more power to them, but they should not be taking advantage of the asylum system.

Not anymore, it would seem.

First safe country is the key. Not every country they travel through is safe. Hence, the legal right to asylum in the U.S.

No matter how many times people here talk about leftists hating the country, it doesn't make it so.
