Again, if you're talking about John Brown, crack open a history book. If you're referring about the attacker, he made the link to John Brown himself, as have members of AntiFA lauding his actions.
It is such a minor violation of law that this separation of families is obviously a gross overreaction.
Except that it isn't a "minor violation of law"--in FY 2016 the average cost of deportation was $10,854 per person deported. If we don't deport them, the average lifetime drain of public resources of each adult undocumented alien would be an average of $65,292. And that doesn't cover the public costs of their children.
And an asylum claim is not fraudulent simply because it is rejected. For example, someone may be fleeing homophobic violence, and the it would be rejected simply because of Trump’s new polices and not because they do not need asylum.
No, it's fraudulent when it's made just to get into the country. It's not like the US asylum laws are classified, do you really think that most of those making those claim don't know they don't meet those standards? Do you really believe that those telling these people what they need to claim to file a claim don't know that they don't meet those standards? Like bringing their families, it's the latest scam to try to get into the country. And by the way, to be granted asylum requires a reasonable fear of future persecution on account of race, religion, national origin, political opinion, or membership in a social group. People fleeing economic collapse or gang violence don't fit any of those categories.
So you agree that officials are not hearing asylum claims. They are instead putting people on waiting lists and letting them suffer as illegals in Mexico for months a a time, including families.
Officials are hearing asylum claims, as many as our resources allow. Does the fact there's a waiting line mean no one is being processed?
And why do you need the Left to get the government to do the honorable thing?
Because they apparently run the House and the Democratic side of the Senate, with its "60% to pass anything" rule.
This is basically a concession that the new policies concerning asylum seekers are merely a racist ploy to deter immigration.
There's no "ploy" about it, it's an attempt to enforce our immigration laws and so discourage those that want to violate them. What's racist about that? And it doesn't deter immigration at all, because immigrants are those that come here legally
and are granted permanent residency status. An undocumented alien is not
Yes, I am aware that Trump has recently changed the policies so that people fleeing violence and that fear for their lives are not considered asylum seekers who are fleeing for their lives.
This is probably why so many claims are rejected, and not because they are not fleeing threats to their lives and safety.
Trump didn't change anything, the limits on those that will be considered for asylum claims predate his election victory.
And for the third or fourth time, this lawbreaking is so minor as to be irrelevant, and they would not even need to do that if Trump was not trying to get re-elected by playing the racist card and not allowing people to apply.
Again, $10,854 each to deport them, $65,292 each if we don't. That isn't minor.
Ideas are far more powerful than guns. We don’t allow our enemies to have guns, why should we allow them to have ideas?
To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.
