Mexico offered these Central Americans asylum with jobs yet they refuse what does that tell you? Mexico doesn't have the welfare state that we do.
They're coming here for freebies. We can't save the world - we need to clean up our own backyard.

Libs never care about Americans.

Trump obviously doesn't care about illegals either. Especially when they serve his purpose.

Do you have a better source? Not a paid subscriber, can’t read the juicy details. Or is an exclusive report only wapo has?

Why do you think that taxes paid belong more to you than to me? Are you under the impression that liberals don't pay tax? If that's the case, then maybe I can get a refund for the taxes I've paid over the years....

They offer no solutions. Only accusations of wrongdoing.

Most of them come here to work and create a better life for their families. This is the fundamental foundation of our country. There is a better way to handle this, but Trump is just too ignorant and self-absorbed and so he continues to make himself look bad in the media.

It was never the foundation of our country for people to come from Latin America to work and live. The foundation was to keep Spanish and Latin America separate from British America and later the US. That is just some new fangled made up leftist thing like "proposition nation". Besides America already has long been founded and well populated many decades ago by immigrants and mostly the native born.

I don't condone what illegals do, nor do I assign free passes because it seems like the christian thing to do. Illegals are a net loss to our Nation and that is the most charitable thing that can be said about them.
There’s a way and there’s another way. I know if the jobs were not there with open arms, this would not be an issue. If the worker visas were better handled- some of this would not be an issue. Asylum is the beginning of our country, mrT has decided he don’t like brown so he’s got an army chasing them. However not a word to the employer’. Next week have a new crew. And I’ve seen this plenty of times in FL. A net loss? Maybe not -all from which side you counting the beans and in part,our drug consumption is what’s made their countries so violent

How? What is the legal article allowing me, an individual citizen, to sponsor a couple to immigrate/stay here legally? Please illustrate is since you are so well versed on immigration law
