The truth of the matter is, they must be referred back to MEXICO if they request asylum and are not from Mexico. Because international law states that you must request Asylum in the first country you reach. So far Europe has ignored that, with seekers passing through eastern Europe, Germany, then France, Calais and finally the goal – the UK’s golden free housing and welfare.
This is the same nonsense. Mexico isn’t good enough because its welfare system isn’t good enough (non existent) so they know that their babies will illegally and nonsensically be considered US citizens in an utter basdardization of the 14th amendment (trump where is the announcement to change this! take it to the supreme court! maybe he’s waiting for one more justice to balance out the witch hags Kagan and Sotomayor. Jesus Ginsberg is hanging on at 82.) “Why Wont You DIE!” – Austin Powers
So on it goes. Not even TRUMP can stop the invasion madness. But at least he has denied them catch and release and THAT is one tiny teensy step forward.
“Mommy says Everything Free in America” said a muddy moppet. Yes Virginia, it is… as long as you aren’t a taxed to death US citizen.
Plyer vs. Doe was the horrific Supreme court case that granted illegal aliens the right to free education at taxpayers expense. There is some logic to it. If we aren’t going to kick them out and arrest them, send them home on slow horrible boats, then get on with the welfare moolah.
Sweden recently hiccuped when they saw their invader welfare bill and began to turn off the welfare spigot to citizens. Homeless in Sweden is now a real thing even with the 40 below. Not enough to go around.
Anne Coulter is spinning in her grave. Oh wait shes not dead yet. Well do something Trump or the poor woman is going to have a heart attack!
The group of about 150 migrants had arrived at the port of entry Sunday afternoon but had been told they would not be processed right away after officials said the crossing was at capacity. Small groups have slowly been admitted since Monday night.
A migrant who gave her name as Katherine and her baby girl, Ashley, were allowed into the port of entry Wednesday morning. Katherine feared the two would not be able to seek asylum with the group after Ashley became sick and had to be taken to the hospital earlier this week.
Katherine has said she was seeking asylum after gang members came after her and her daughter because her boyfriend owed them money.
Many of the migrants are fleeing violence in Central America.
Alexandra Mejia, a transgender woman fleeing persecution in El Salvador, was also admitted on Wednesday morning, a day after feeling like she couldn’t take waiting in the camp much longer.
“I can’t take it here anymore,” she said Tuesday. “The nights are too cold and sleeping on the floor is painful. We have to walk a mile to use the bathroom every day at a nearby shelter. I can’t do it any longer.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday afternoon that he was adding 35 assistant United States attorneys “to the border to prosecute illegal entries into our country.” He was also moving 18 immigration judges to the border, he said.
“We are not going to let this country be overwhelmed. People are not going to caravan or otherwise stampede our border,” he said. “We need legality and integrity in the system.”
President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that the caravan “is openly defying our border.” Asylum is a form of relief recognized under international law.
The Justice Department announced Monday night that it had filed charges against 11 people who were “suspected members” of the caravan for allegedly entering the United States illegally. One was alleged to have been previously deported, according to a department statement.
A federal law enforcement official told NBC News on Tuesday: “Membership with the caravan was disclosed during routine immigration inspection and questioning done by federal immigration authorities.”
