RE: My Thoughts on the USA migrant Caravan Issue as someone whose immigrated into the USA

Do you support increasing funding for the govt. officials processing the asylum applications? They are only able to process 100 applications a day right now, far below the number needed to eliminate the lines.

Sort:  

Great questions, If you are asking to increase the budget to help the legal immigration process become faster and more efficient, I am for that as well. But we also have to keep in mind many many things require more immediate attention from existing social services for current citizens that have no budgets, housing issues, medical issues etc. Many many broken parts of our government currently need to be focused on. Making immigration more efficient at least for now would not be my top priority until more pressing matters are addressed first.

Isn't it more expensive to send national guard troops to the border? You have to pile them all up in trucks and move them to the border. Then you have to feed and house them the whole time. Meanwhile, you still have to keep the lights on at the bases they were normally deployed at. It's extremely expensive.

Yet I don't see Trump asking for more money from Congress to process the applications. That doesn't make any sense. According to U.S. law, asylum seekers have a right to go through the process whether they enter through a checkpoint or not. It seems to me, Congress should repeal that law and require asylum seekers to pass through a checkpoint. In addition, it should appropriate more funds so that asylum seekers can go through the checkpoint. This would allow people who legitimately qualify for asylum to go through the process and get admitted to the U.S., while others would not be admitted.

Ultimately, the only way to fix this problem is to increase or eliminate the refugee cap. If more people were allowed in as refugees, as your family was, they wouldn't need to come into the U.S. and go through the asylum process. They could wait in another country until their paperwork is processed - as your family did. But the refugee cap has been reduced to 30,000. It was much higher when your family applied.

Regardless, I appreciate you telling us about your personal experience in this post, and I appreciate reading your perspective on the issue.

I appreciate your input and you bring up valid points. I think the main issue here is if this caravan were to succeed and make its way into the US, this would set a very dangerous precedent and the elites would than start sending in more and more of these caravans to destabilize the US and the economy through social and economic problems that will result. Trump and the rest of the white hats see this and need to end this problematic option before it can succeed.

The asylum rules are not being adhered to in this caravans case and do not apply, if MSM didn't mislead about the asylum issue less people would be triggered and mislead.

Either way the caravan was not an organic movement, but elitists manipulating people and causing situations and than guiding those same people to help them start new problems elsewhere. Once this elite hidden hand is removed, these issues would not happen in such large numbers as they do in this case and with the crisis in Europe as we see. Than the corrective actions can be done once these manipulators are out of the picture.
