If immigrants are breaking the law by entering the United States illegaly, and overwhelming resources, why are we required to deal with it?
We don t have the resources and capacity to deal with so many people, and that s why all the problems are happening.
The Liberals, however, are making it sound as if all the overcrowding, etc. is the government s fault.

Dems think they're killing the Republican party. In fact, they're creating one more country like Honduras. The U.S. and central America will have nearly indistinguishable living conditions and governments.

We do have the resources and capacity -- on our farms. We just don't have it at the border. If we let them go to our -- which need them anyway -- we wouldn't have a problem.

"We don t have the resources and capacity..." is a silly rationalization conservatives weaponize. To forgive student loans would cost us 1.6 trillion that conservatives tell us we can't afford. The tax breaks we gave to the wealthy cost us 1.9 trillion which we apparently CAN afford. So we can't afford to help students but we CAN afford to give free money to the wealthy....really?

In line with US obligations under the international human rights treaties to which it is party: prohibit the practice of family separations
The United States agreed to the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees when it joined 145 other nations in ratifying the Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees in 1968. These treaties define a “refugee” as a person fleeing her or his country of origin because of a well-founded fear of persecution on the basis of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion.
Under the treaties, refugees have the human right to request asylum. In addition, these treaties forbid countries from expelling refugees or from sending any immigrants to countries where their life or freedom would be threatened on the basis of the same five categories.
These treaties also prohibit countries from punishing refugees for entering illegally if their life or freedom was threatened at home.
In addition the US Constitution makes the rules in these treaties binding U.S. law
As the richest country in the world of course you have the resources and capacity to deal with these people.
The Trump administration is treating asylum-seekers like criminals. When the U.S. government prosecutes or imprisons these asylum-seekers, it violates the rights protected in the two treaties that recognize the human right to seek asylum.

I think they should all be shipped to San Francisco. Nancy Pelosi's district. And also to Bronx and Queens to AOC's district.

1. Requesting asylum is not against the law
2. Kellyanne Conway the president's trusted adviser, broke the law on many occasions including ignoring a lawful supboena. Why are we required to pay her salary?

Deal with lawbreakers? Are you saying we shouldn't have to deal with lawbreakers?
- ShiloLv 711 months ago
Yes, they do overwhelm our resources, but why we are "required" to deal with it is because we are better than ignoring the problem, or worse, making it worse. Let's demonstrate how a civilized country with the greatest minds available can deal with this problem humanely and effectively.
