I wholeheartedly agree with this. The legal system is a total mess, and due process is for citizens of this country. Why should you be granted those same rights when you shit all over our immigration laws? Spare me the “they’re refugees seeking asylum” nonsense. Those who were actually seeking asylum, rather than claiming to seek asylum only when they get caught, would apply at a border check point, or any of the US Consulates in Mexico. The legal process is long and expensive. You get chastised for separating families (even though these irresponsible parents are the ones causing this) and you’re responsible for feeding and housing these people during the long process. Anyone who can legally come to the United States would go through the front door, not stealthily cross over the border in the middle of the night. It’s completely reasonable, and probably far too common sense and logical for us to actually carry out this policy.
I’m glad President Trump doesn’t mince words. They are invading this country. When the probable future President of Mexico’s official policy is to encourage his own citizens to go to America there’s no other word for it. They’re not even trying to hide it anymore.
And I’d still like someone to give me a nice explanation as to why we aren’t allowed to have and enforce our own border laws but every other non-Western country can.
