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.
