What’s your take on people rushing over to the border illegally?

Liberal media feeds us with a different spin on even this issue but clearly these are people trying to get in illegally and exploit the immigration loop holes. I am liberal but I really feel like we are moving way too much to the left.
No matter how you see it is unacceptable for people to coordinatedly storm our border. Throwing stones is no way to seek asylum. The officers have a duty to stop these people.

The new breed of extreme leftists need to put law ahead of partisanship. Even if it was not Trump, I would expect any President to act strongly on this issue. Else it would only incentivize multiple mass mobs like this.
I am sad I voted for democrats who are doing this!

    People should come to US legally. Apply for a work visa, come for business to US on business visa, we also have farm visas, and visa in practically every category.

      I checked state department website and found the H2-A agricultural visa and H2-B non-agricultural visa.

    I agree that the extreme left has a disproportionate voice in popular media and especially in tech.

    But, what the fuck are you talking about? They're "rushing the border"? They're "throwing stones"??? All the caravan is doing is moving towards the US border to wait in line for asylum, that's anything but an act of aggression

      Did you watch the videos you idiot? They're literally pelting stones at the border and security folks, and use hijacked kids as shields to protect themselves from attack.

      Wtf? Are you really this stupid? Yes, they have tried to enter by force just like they did with all the other borders along the way. And yes, they have thrown stones at the border patrol agents. Just because they didn’t show the footage on cnn doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

      You are living in a cave of an echo chamber. Have a broader view of the world and explore an issue from multiple perspectives.

      Outside the echo chamber, you could have seen live videos of what is happening at the border. People can’t create “live” “old fake videos”.

    The issue is really about political power. Democrats know first generation immigrants are likely to vote Democrat. The more people crossing the border, the closer they get to a permanent electoral majority. That’s all that is going on here.

      It’s not possible that a lot of democrats are idealists that feel compassion for immigrants and the disenfranchised??

      So, conservatives believe that in order to stay in power they need to prevent certain people from being enfranchised?

      Hmm, idk if that’s really the most flattering defense of increasing immigration restrictions.

      If women lost the vote, Republicans would have a permanent majority.

    Why US should accept asylum is a question. The money from taxpayers should be spend either on US people or something beneficial to US people. Asylum seems never meeting any of the two.

    • Ok, so you want to provide more services to homeless people instead?

      Big government actually stops the homeless. You are not allowed to be employed legally unless you have a permanent home address. They usually don't have one, so they get shafted. Thanks big government.

      Exactly. You don't need to rush the border and force entry into the US. You can approach a port of entry office at the border to file asylum status.

      Yes this is correct.

      But understand what’s going on here in reality. Many of these people are not even eligible for an asylum technically. They fill out their asylum papers, enter the country and disappear into various parts of the country. And they become illegal immigrants after that since they know they have no legal grounds for an asylum. Many people frankly are just using this process to get around the border security and then continue to live undocumented.

  • Applying for political asylum is legal.

    If they are seeking asylum, “rushing” the border isn’t illegal.

    Why not move all these government employees that have so much time to appear in the media to the border to process applications?
    Nov 305
    • Proofpoint / Engfoodtruckj
      You can walk to the border. There is no need to rush the border.

      The customs enforcement will handle the application if you behave in a civilized manner and approach them for filing it as they can't keep you away from filing asylum application.

      The only reason why the process takes long is because the government chooses so.

      Why punish legitimate asylum seekers, because of incompetent government employees?
      Nov 30
    • Microsoft yayssa
      The legitimate asylum seekers are being punished by the 80%+ frivolous asylum application that DoS the system.
      Nov 30
    • OpenTable Meliodas
      The legitimate asylum seekers are being punished by the government if the government makes the process more burdensome.

      The government is causing the bottleneck by its intentional understaffing.

      Halowens, during Obama as president, millions were deported, including border arrests and deportations.

      jxQd60, that was a good video explaining how it is all BS and no one will care in a couple of weeks. News to distract from actual problems.

      Cool. I live in California in an area where there are lots of immigrants. Worked with lots of immigrants both legal and undocumented in the past. They don’t need to crash on someone’s couch. But I guess if it was someone I knew, sure.

    I’m hella liberal. That said, border crossing is incredibly dangerous and does our country a good deal of financial damage. With that said our immigration process is a bit broken right now between family separation and years and years of a wait to be heard in immigration court. Searching for financial and social freedom is understandable and should require someone to go through a process. Seeking asylum if you fear for your life is a bit different though.
