Good point picked up on from John Roberts Sunday show.
Walls and fences are major part of the solution but they certainly will not solve the problem alone.
Trump and others keep talking about “changing our laws” but rarely do we hear anything of substance on the subject.
One point is claims of Asylum particularly from the “Norther Triangle Countries”.
Some of those folks are legitimately asylees/refugees and basically all of them now know that if they can set one foot on US soil and turn themselves into the BP claiming asylum it will at least be weeks, probably months and often years before their cases can be thoroughly reviewed and during the interim they are released into the US.
Those that are immediately rejected run as high as 80-90% depending on who’s figures you accept and a good percentage of those are obviously frauds.
How would you change the laws on the books to still leave an open door to legitimate claimants but close it hard for those who are not?
Criminalize the frauds, prosecute them with a minimum incarceration time of 6-12 months.
That would probably lower the work load in short order by at least 60-75% freeing up the resources for the legit claimants.
Add as quickly as possible at least 200-300 new immigration judges to handle the current/future load specifically and as many as are deemed practice to deal with the backlog of something like 800,000 cases that are already in the courts.
Immediately then deport to Mexico or wherever they entered the US from.
Not only will this greatly discourage/deter non legit claims it puts the burden of then providing for these people and/or incorporating them into the Mexican system and relieves the US taxpayers of the burden.
Tijuana has pretty much been bankrupted over the “caravaners” that got stuck there and even the state is having very hard time providing help to TJ.
Increase this overall burden to Mexico by ten’s of hundreds of thousands and see then just how quickly they stop providing the illegals a free pass through Mexico into the US.
I’m not the least bit racist, nor do I hold legitimate refugees and asylees in contempt in any way but I’m fed up with this entire situation and tired of being told “we’ll fix it next session” or “next year” for 40 years with no real attempt at a resolution.
The cost to the US taxpayer has been staggering over that time not to mention all of the victims of crimes committed by illegals in the US and the carnage that has resulted.
Trump and the RNC need to get specific, and hire the best marketing team in the world to help them present it straight up and factually to the US and force the left to try and fight it.
Republicans and Conservatives have been surrendering and playing passive for far too long and sine the Reagan and Gingrich Era’s have never been able to present and hold a united front or do even a half-assed job of doing anything but “preaching to the choir”.
Without a doubt there are a considerable number of republicans who are bought and paid for by individuals and companies that benefit from Illegals and keeping the status quo and they need to be shown for who and what they are so their constituents have no choice but to accept the facts.
Without trolling out the white nationalist/racist meme can anyone argue a better case or add something of value to this line of discussion?
