    Weird that these conservatives are so bent on making these stupid choices as a way to make the “numbers go down” in terms of who’s entering the country, but they do so under the assumption that foreigners are all dangerous criminals, and will never actually fucking admit that that’s the real reason they’re concerned (because they’re afraid of “young strong foreigners coming for our women and our jobs”) 😑

    The damage is already done before refugees ever reach or try to illegally cross the Mexican-US boundary.
    Are we really that stupid to think that these people
    have never seen wealthy neighborhoods live or
    paradisian places of the US
    in the internet.
    Anger,anxiety,grief
    mingles with despair of
    what has been withheld.
    Being still with a last spark of hope to escape the old fate...
    What would you do for it?
    if you could put worries and fears behind yourself
    because a newly populated planet with advanced technology and inexhaustible energy supply will promise you your new fortune,
    won't you like to go to there?
    Oh sorry,
    maybe you won't;
    because you could not
    make use of your money anymore there,
    and you also could not build a wall
    because there would be no more refugees.

    The difference between Legal and illegal immigration. Migrants know that they will have to apply for legal entry into the US. Do we have a US embassy in South America? So these people should not have to walk anywhere until they have papers.

      LOL! "Journalism at its best!"??? LOL!
      It's a very curious, interesting, and troubling phenomenon on how this show constantly and conveniently left out the fact that *there never is and there never was a "law"* telling the Border Patrol, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or even the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS); that after catching and detaining illegal alien parents with children, to then separate these children from their parents. There isn't even a blanket policy or procedure either. WTF OVER!?!?
      The FACT of the matter is, is that these agencies do have a responsibility to *protect minors who are in their custody.*
      This means that the Border Patrol, CBP, ICE, and even DHS will only separate adults and minors under *certain circumstances.* These circumstances include:
      1) When the agency is unable to determine the familial relationship
      2) When the agency determines that a child may be at risk with the parent or legal guardian, or
      3) When the parent or legal guardian is referred for criminal prosecution.
      Familial Relationship - If there is reason to question the claimed familial relationship between an adult and child, it is not appropriate to detain adults and children together.
      Human Trafficking and Smuggling - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian of human trafficking or smuggling, the agency detains the adult in an appropriate, secure detection facility, separate from the minor. The agency continues to see instances and intelligence reports indicating minors are trafficked by unrelated adults, posing as a “family” in an effort to avoid detention.
      Safety Risk - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian poses a safety risk to the child (e.g. suspected child abuse), it is not appropriate to maintain the adult and child together.
      Criminal Prosecution - If an adult is referred for criminal prosecution, the adult will be transferred to U.S. Marshals Service custody and any children will be classified as an unaccompanied alien child and transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services custody.
      *"Journalism at its best!"* PLEEEEEASE! LOL!

      +Stephen2462 How many times do I have to tell you. Nobody is saying that it is illegal to claim asylum. Anybody can claim all the asylum they want. There's no law that says you can't.
      Since *anybody* can claim asylum or refugee status, where the law draws line to establish eligibility for asylum or refugee status, you must prove you are either the victim of past persecution or you have a well-founded fear of future persecution. In the case of past persecution, you must prove that you were persecuted in your home country or last country of residence.
      The persecution must have been based on at least one of five grounds, either your:
      •race
      •religion
      •nationality
      •political opinion, or
      •membership in a particular social group.
      Illegally crossing the border and then making a piss-poor excuse like "I'm here to work." or "I was mugged by gangs." or "I have children." in order to claim asylum or refugee status is not gonna cut it.

      +Stephen2462 In layman's terms, the executive order is doubling down on the already existing immigration laws. And if any changes are to be made to the immigration laws, he left it up to Congress to decide. Where it should be.
      I'm not distracting you from anything. You keep telling me that these are lies. They're not. I asked you if you can prove, beyond any reasonable doubt, that these children actually do in fact belong to these so called "parents"? You said no. Which is why they need to be separated until this has been confirmed. If you got a better idea then I'm all ears.
      If you can't handle a little suffering then you bring on bottomless suffering.
      Obama separated children too. They still separated children from their parents, *under certain circumstances,* ( www.dhs.gov/news/2018/06/18/myth-vs-fact-dhs-zero-tolerance-policy ) The border patrol, CBP, ICE, & DHS still did this under Obama. It's just that *they never documented how many.* What a curious, interesting, and troubling phenomenon that the Obama administration never wanted it to be documented.

      Again, not relevant to the conversation. Are you trying to distract me from something?

      The fact that the pictures insinuated that it was Trump that did this but when they were caught they quickly recanted it all. LOL! No lies and political agenda here. Keep moving. LOL!
      And the fact that this same article, just like your wiki one, still did not show any kind of law, policy, procedure, or process that states to just separate children from their parents. And that no such records were kept that showed just how many children were separated from their so called "parents" under previous administrations either. Curiouser and curiouser.
      Still no evidence to back up your claims.

      No, I don't think that this happens on a regular basis. I never heard any evidence about such a situation.
      I don't know how much asylum seekers are checked on a regular basis in the long run in the USA. If they are confronted with social workers and the youth welfare office on a regular basis they won't be able to give the children away which would contradict the whole point of child trafficking. Also child prostitution wouldn't be easy to hide.
      If you're really afraid of immigrants pretending to be parents of kidnapped children, there are many better ways to hinder them from doing this than seperating blindly all children from their parents:
      - ask for formulars
      - if they don't have any (also if they have) interrogate the parents and speak with the children
      - attend the family on a regular basis
      - speak with teachers and other persons of trust for the children
      I really never heard about child trafficking masked as immigration, neither in Europe nor in the USA. Before one takes action against such a rare thing one should think about a plan that doesnt hurt any other innocent people.

    • BenJamin Croft
      BenJamin Croft 23 timer siden

      +Klaus Heiszt A child trafficker can easily manipulate the child. After being with them for so long they become dependent upon them. Which makes it easy for them to teach the child what to say.
      Just tell them I am your mother, you're from here, your father's name is this, this is our last name, ect. ect, or they'll take you away from me and I'll never see you again. Ok?
      You don't think this kind of stuff doesn't happen on a regular basis? Especially at the border? When they know for a fact that if you bring children with you you'll get a free ride?
      If you can't handle a little suffering then you bring on bottomless suffering.

      Of course. And I'm saying: The likeliness of causing damage to the children's life is way higher when you seperate them from their parents than going for the phantasized risk of yours that some parents could pretend to be the parents of some children.
      The pragmatic question would be: how do you prove wether the parents are actually the parents or not? I don't know how this works for most asylum seekers' home countries - they probably have the papers? But if not: do you just seperate them because of a wild guess? Nah, ask the children, keep contact to the families, in order to see if there are any bad cases but jesus christ, just don't take children away from their parents. This is just pure cruelty.

If they don't have any immediate family or next of kin they go into the already deplorable child services system and shelters or even detention centers too.

    This is somewhat ridiculous. Sure, requesting asylum is fine, but there're two things that need to be understood. Requesting asylum is REQUESTING it. It does NOT grant you immigration rights. Second, the request can be and SHOULD be denied in some instances. I'm from South America, Colombia and I guarantee you, 99% of the people "Persecuted" are just using it as a scapegoat to a better country. They're not TRULY in danger. Now keep in mind these criminals (Those who illegally cross) take their children with them on their own accord and it is THEIR decision, and as the children parents, THEIR fault. If the parents are treated as criminals and sent back, and until that happens the children get separated, that is fully on the PARENTS responsibility, NOT the law enforcement. So why don't you make a show instead, aimed AT the parents to NOT bring their children illegally to another country? - If the person requesting asylum goes through the process and it is found that the person TRULY is escaping persecution (Which they most often than not, aren't because guess... people lie) Then there is no need to separate parents from children. If the parent is found to have committed a criminal act, the law should be applied, regardless of whether or not we feel sorry for the poor families.

      The persecution must have been based on at least one of five grounds, either your:

    Humans are often stupid and destructive by nature. The difference between a bad person and a good person is, very simply, that a bad person follows their nature, and a good person thinks, then rises above it. It is sort of natural for you to fear something or someone you don't know, but good people set those fears aside and treat others fairly anyway. The thing is, following our nature will eventually lead us to return to a time when doing such was necessary.

    I am not a religious person, but I was raised Christian and the fact that anyone can stand up and say that they follow the word of Jesus and still support policies that cause that kind of harm not just to humans but to children is truly appalling. If anyone has the gall to say they are Christian and support Trump of his inhumane policies then they should be ashamed. My parents and I may not see eye to eye on things like religion, but at least I know that they live by the things Jesus preached.

    Obviously, people should want to treat people as people regardless of what their religion says, but the hypocrisy of calling oneself a Christian while doing these things is even worse.

      Safety Risk - If there is reason to suspect the purported parent or legal guardian poses a safety risk to the child (e.g. suspected child abuse), it is not appropriate to maintain the adult and child together.
      Criminal Prosecution - If an adult is referred for criminal prosecution, the adult will be transferred to U.S. Marshals Service custody and any children will be classified as an unaccompanied alien child and transferred to the Department of Health and Human Services custody.

    so im a republican and i watch john to see the other side and personally i like him he tries to source but the part where trump was saying like women want security well thats not particually sexist seeing as his point of view at the time was women dont want to be raped do normal ppl want women to be raped hell no but he said it saying that rape is bad and it is true some (some!) illegal immagrants have commited murder rape not all but some also some legal www.businessinsider.com/undocumented-aliens-violent-crime-murder-statistics-data-2018-8 theres a source, so yea trump wasnt really sexist but kinda was at the same time

      If I had a large bowl of m&m's and I told you to just help yourself; and right before you were ready to put a handful of them in your mouth I'd say, "OH, I forgot to tell you I mixed in one poisonous m&m in with the others to make it more interesting. But go ahead. The chances of you being affected by that one bad one are almost zero. They're basically all still good safe m&m's to put into your mouth though. Enjoy" 😉

      +BenJamin Croft If by "other proposals", you mean funding for conventional border security upgrades and such, they'd already agreed to them before Trump tried to throw funding for his wall in. He's just throwing a tantrum because the wall is all he cares about.
      The Heritage Foundation is a right-wing think tank who's job is to push Republican policies, they are by no means reliable as a source.
      Are you trying to paint the Democrats as a party of welfare queens? GTFO with your stupid generalizations.
      They are allowed to apply for asylum, yes. The US has signed international treaties that mandate that. The reason so many people are taking advantage of it is because South and Central America are a mess (in part thanks to the US meddling), and because Republicans are cutting down on the number of people allowed to immigrate legally.

    • BenJamin Croft
      BenJamin Croft 14 dager siden

      +Stephen2462, Yes. The Republicans do have other proposals other than just building a wall in order to deal with the high influx of immigrants. The Democrats want nothing to do with them because the wall is a part of these proposals. And Trump knows this and ain't budging on it.
      www.heritage.org/immigration/commentary/the-wall-not-enough-heres-how-solve-illegal-immigration (a wall is not enough)
      When the shutdown happens, all these leftwing, democratic, liberals are no longer going to have their free welfare checks, free healthcare, free college, free EVERYTHING, if the Democrats keep denying these border improvement proposals that include the wall. Trump knows what he's doing and you SJW's are falling right into it.
      Correct. Because since *anybody* can claim asylum or refugee status, simply saying, "I was attacked by a gang." or "I'm here to work." or "I have "children"." ain't gonna cut it anymore. They know the weaknesses in the system and they are exploiting them.
      Wake up!

    • Stephen2462
      Stephen2462 14 dager siden

      +BenJamin Croft Nope, he just wants a wall. Contrary to the Republican narrative, Democrats have made no complaints about other (actually effective) forms of border security, nor would they if Republicans put any effort whatsoever into improving the immigration process. If anything, Republicans deliberately keeping it inefficient so they can keep using illegals as a wedge issue to rally single-issue voters.
      "No one is saying that you can't come here" And yet Republican policies in the last two years have led to a significant reduction in the number of legal immigrants allowed into the country.

    • BenJamin Croft
      BenJamin Croft 14 dager siden

      That's what Trump wants to do. It's not about just building a wall. It's also about adding more man power, better facilities, better equipment, and improving the immigration process in order to help deal with the high influx of immigrants wanting to come here.
      No one is saying that you can't come here or seek asylum or refugee status. Of course you can. But you have to follow the laws in order to get into this country. The majority of these people are not doing that.
