    Default Re: Immigration Issues, You are Damned if you Do, and Damned if you Don't

    I didn't find a forum for "National News" ... All national issues are not political...or did I just miss it (the national news forum)?

    Congress, get off your collective asses and fix the issues that plague this subject.

    To sustain a "zero tolerance policy" is impossible as the resource are not there...

    Agencies responsible for immigration issues have never been allocated adequate funds and have historically had to make priorities to enforce the immigration laws and never to fully enforce the letter-of-every-element of those laws--probably the reason that the immigration laws have so much "at the discretion" built into them.

    It is important to remember that illegal entry and entry requesting asylum are two distinctly different issues.

    There are not enough Federal prosecutors, courts, judges, ICE personnel and detention space to prosecute every person caught making an illegal entry into this country. Until and unless Congress allocate the funds and taxpayers, both private and business, are willing to fund them this is only a pipe dream that will never materialize. That doesn't happened with us all paying less in taxes and it should not be done on the backs of the poor, the sick, veterans, the military, the old and infirm, education, etc.

    My hope is if anyone has questions or an interest that the following may be helpful:

    1980 GOP Presidential Debate on Immigration Debate

    I have no disagreement with the response from either George Bush, the father or Ronald Reagan.

    I'm of the belief that this isn't so much a immigration problem as a refugee problem. Sorta like Hungry and Cuba in years past. Remember the term "feet dry" all they had to do is get to shore and they were good. To get out of their original country and walking the length of Mexico shows some level of fear imo.

    They did get out of their countries.
    That happened when they crossed into Mexico.
    Dry feet were 90 miles from our border not thousands.
    Why didn't they seek asylum in Mexico once they escaped their countries?

    I've spent several years in Mexico, if you ever went there, any place other than a major resort town, you would not ask such a question. Even Cancun, Merida, Punta Cana encourage tourists to "stay" on resort grounds for the reason of safety.

    So all of Mexico is corrupt and dangerous?
    So why would we want people like that coming here?
    Wouldn't that be a great reason for a wall?
