    It appears the people doing this are Americans and not the illegals..

    But may be wrong..

    Oh the irony and idiocy of these people..

    They cross into the US and then hoist the Mexican flag? This makes no sense

    Maybe not done by Mexicans

    And they are also welcome to go live in Mexico. Although I think it’s harder than just walking in like here

    This actually wasn’t at the border. This was at an ICE facility in Colorado.

    Done by anti-ICE protestors. Insanity

    We live in the greatest country in the world but we have this section of the country that wants be like everyone else. Maybe they should just leave. Go get those free drugs in Cuba. Or cheap Canadian education. Healthcare in England. Have at it. Let us know how it goes.

    Kids separated from their parents and caged up in squalor and being abused doesn't do it for you.
    But the flag...OMG the flag,.
    Sad. So, so sad,

    Kids have been separated from their parents in America for decades when the parents break the law..

    And yes entering the country illegally is breaking the law. Don’t understand the separation issue.

    Yes..some of the places are filthy. Our government has been saying it’s a crisis for years..finally the other side agrees.

    If there’s abuse going on whoever is doing it must be arrested..

    Don’t want to get separated or put in a cage? Stay home or put up shop in Mexico. Want to come to the GOAT? Follow the rules

    I think they probably lived in very horrible places and saw pictures of that Statue of Liberty and took the words too seriously.
    BTW, it is great to see the USA setting new standards for treatment of those seeking asylum here.

    They probably did live in horrible places.which is why it’s disgusting the flag of such a horrible place is flying above ours. At a government facility.

    So I take it you worry about one issue at a time? For example you started a thread about sexual abuse children at detention facilities so right now your giving no other issues your attention but that one.

    Just showing you how stupid your argument is.

    They left the horrors of their country inspired by those words on the Statue of Liberty and the promise that America holds out to the whole world.
    My great grandparents were attracted by the same thing. And I'm sure that some of the "real" Americans who were already here back then cared little for those Pollacks, Jews, Huns, and Hunkies.

    I'm not sure I have a solution. But it sure as hell looks like Lyin' Donnie has none.
    I just have much higher expectations for how my country should deal with a bunch of people fleeing the horrors of their homeland to apply for asylum in the USA.
    It's shameful how we're treating those poor people. We can do better than this.

    Was it only a couple of weeks ago that one of the networks showed a slightly truncated picture of kids in cages? Only to have it revealed that the blocked out part read 2015? Or was that just a hoax by eeeeevil Republicans?

    But tell me, KB--you have been around for a while. Do you favor a path to citizenship for absolutely everyone that manages to make it here from whatever country? Guatemala, Mexico, Venezuela, Ukraine, Outer Mongolia--wherever? All should be given a path to citizenship and be eligible immediately for benefits, unless they have been convicted of serious crimes? That how you see it? This question is addressed to all those decrying the awful treatment of these poor refugees from horrible strife at home. There is a limit to how many immigrants we can accept, without stretching our ability to handle and care for them beyond recovery. Do we just scrap the legal immigration system and say, if you come here, you can stay? Or are you going to simply, as KB does, use the issue as a club to attack the President? Tried to smoke people out on this issue, but they keep ducking and diving like Sugar Ray Leonard against Roberto Duran.

    Instead of the “follow the rules” let’s just amend the rules, quickly vet these people to ensure they’re not terrorists, and grant them citizenship so we can move on with life.

    Since it will be an ongoing issue, we should also probably setup quick vetting stops at the border too. This issue should have been put to rest years ago. None of us want this.

    I can't believe the mamalukes think that abusing the "invaders" is somehow gonna stem the "invasion". They should take another look at the places that the invaders are running away from.

    And let anybody who wants to come and seek asylum come in unfettered?

    And not address overstays on visas or others that just sneak in ?

    No “invaders” are getting abused. That’s bullshit.

    90% of the “invaders” don’t qualify for asylum.

    This is a purposefully built human tragedy.

    Congress can fix this in 1 hour if they acted in good faith.

    It’s almost impossible to get these people coming from the places they are. Hell, LL baseball can’t verify kids ages and birth certificates. But let’s let tens of thousands on grown men in every month.

    Again. There is a process. Want asylum? come and ask for it the right way. If the place you are leaving is so bad isn’t Mexico a step up? And let’s be honest, they have no idea what it says on the Statue of Liberty.

    Good idea. I mean, if they aren’t costing the government/tax payers money as many on here claim, then they shouldn’t cost any family taking them in money, right? We’ve been told they pay their own way.

    My issue with the asylum position is twofold. First, they are passing through other countries to get here. Why not seek asylum in Mexico? Or why even stop here? Since Canada is supposedly so superior to us with their socialized medicine and all, keep heading north and seek asylum there. Second, if you are seeking asylum here, enter through ports of entry. Why is this so hard for people to grasp?

    The Canadian education you said you want your own children to have?

    Everywhere else is real terrible, I mean imagine kids not getting shot in school, police not shooting innocent people, children get insulin even if they have a poor family. The horror!

    And you can believe in Western Europe and Canada and Australia, major parties do not nominate pedophiles for office who are banned from the mall? Sad!

    We're the majority, why don't you go back to whatever hole you crawled out of?

    You do realize literally everything you suggest should be happening already is?

    We have a sponsorship program
    Mexico is not considered safe, but some do claim asylum in Canada and Europe, would be higher if we had an adult who could negotiate with them in charge
    They do enter through ports of entry, all the time, but they need to be on American soil to make the claim.

    They claim to follow the teachings of Jesus, that is the best part.

    Their racism always shines straight through.
