So here’s what a Texas Democrat had to say about what’s happening at the border:
"At least one Democrat in a border district is now sounding similar warnings.
U.S. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez of McAllen told CNN that if the administration follows through with its plan to quickly release migrants seeking asylum, it will send a message to Central Americans that tens of thousands of people can show up to the border. That would be “catastrophic for our party, for our country, for my region, for my district, in the middle of a pandemic.”"
So if anyone can just walk up to the border and make a (phony in my view) asylum claim and then be simply let into the country how is this not defacto open borders?
What’s the point of even having a legal process for immigration if you are going to allow this?
Exactly what are these people going to do. Millions of Americans are still out of work, millions of jobs have been lost, many for good, we have millions of homeless Americans, but we’re fine with flooding the nation with impoverished, uneducated people from anywhere and everywhere, who don’t speak English?
Here’s another question. How many of the world’s impoverished citizens do you believe that the American middleclass should be forced to provide for free education, free healthcare, free housing, etc., for?
I’ve said this before. Out of one side of their mouth libs cry about the number of people in poverty here in the United States, about income inequality, etc., but are more than happy to invite as many of the world’s impoverished here as well.
In 2017 more then 700,000 came into the US by other means then crossing the border. And they did it legally. Then they overstayed their permission to be here. Which yes, did make them illegal.
I don’t understand why so many people think that all of our immigration problems are with the southern border.
I will agree that a number of Latino’s do not assimilate as much as some other folks. But it is also the case with folks from other countries also. At one point California was spending a lot of money printing ballots in many different languages. Hell, we cater a lot to the Latino’s who come here. There are Spanish newspapers, TV and radio channels. And we spend the extra money to teach their kids English in schools. Assimilation would be different if we required everyone to speak English. A concept that has been kicked around for decades and one that politicians handle like a hot potato.
