    Allow me to offer up some facts for you folks. See if you can accept them.

    1) People fleeing a nation can only claim asylum in the nation on the other side of
    their first border crossing. So...if you leave Honduras and enter Guatemala on your way to the US,
    you don't get to claim asylum anywhere but Guatemala.

    2) Most of the people who are coming here, even if they face gang violence and other dangers in
    their home country....are coming here to work. They should be turned away at the border...families intact.

    3) They continue to come and risk everything because corporate America wants them. As long as that is the
    case....they will come. If that is illegal to do...they will break the law.

    4) Separating immigrant children from parents is fucking shitty policy. In no way can it be justified.

    5) We need immigrants if our economy is to flourish. They are not taking jobs from native born Americans.

    6) The GOP has blocked immigration reform from getting a vote in Congress because corporate
    America as well as a loud base of bigots....has forced them to do so.

    So in short, you’re for open boarders?

    Its either hold these kids until families are found or set them free....catch and release is what has caused this...shutting down catch and release will eventually bring it to a stop....when word gets out that Obama's catch and release program is over they will stop coming...

    Do the dems want to release into America any illegal alien that approaches the border with some kid he found along the way? If the media and the dems want that then they should have the guts to say so.....if not then shut the fuck up and change the law...

    Catch and release is a term that humans use for animals and fish.

    Was NOT true recently for the MILLIONS of people streaming OUT of the Mid East and Africa. In fact, the migration was SO LARGE and UNPRECENDENTED --- that the ENTIRE WORLD became involved. If this didn't happen -- than GREECE would be prodominantly Arab today..

    Correct. If your home govt is corrupt and inept and can't keep the gangs from recruiting your kids -- that's a LOCAL problem. If your home govt is threatening you or punishing you because race, ethnicity or politics -- Take a number and Welcome to America.

    That's part of the problem. The ENTIRE Immigration problem ENDS TOMORROW -- if we just enforce the EXISTING LAW. It is ILLEGAL to hire undocumented aliens.. END OF STORY...

    Dragging your ass and your child across most of Cent Amer and Mexico in the presence of criminal cartels and gangs and coyotes without a passport, birth/marriage/work records, forwarding address, or picture ID is insane. Also housing minors in with GENERAL POPULATION detention is insane. If the parents (IF they ARE the parents) need to be investigated and legally arraigned and detained for 3 months -- it was INSANE to bring a kid along.

    That's actually very racist and classist. History shows that even the 2nd and 3rd generations of these immigrants end up in NEAR JOB PARITY with the native American work force. The "dreamers" for instance are NOT picking cabbage, replacing roofs and changing bedpans. They are COMPETING for the EXACT same middle class and professional jobs that other Americans are. Leftists are stupid, shortsighted and RACIST when they neglect the reality of the near future implications of MASSIVE illegal immigration.

    Garbage. The Left doesn't want to SOLVE the fundamental underlying immigration problems with an egotistical Prez who will try and take all the credit. They are TOTALLY fixated on optics and "winning". Not actually fixing the structural defects in the problem. It's like the little Dutch boy and the dike. They're gonna run out of fingers to stick in the TINY holes like "children in cages", when he can HEAR the entire structure cracking.
