The only whiners are you people, who fear that a brown person might move in next door.

Less than 15%--where did you get that statistic?

The asylum seekers don't have to follow YOUR suggestions.

Keep sucking up to Trump's propaganda. It'll make his ultimate defeat so much nicer!

They won't risk being turned away for NOT having valid reason to ask for asylum, they come over here illegally and if they are not caught they rarely EVER plead asylum, they take the chance they will get in and not get caught and are told to plea for asylum if they do! They also know that if they get here and ask for asylum they will be put in a detention center for a bit and then likely let go (or at least that was the policy before Trump) and just told to return for a court date, they are then freely let out into the community to disappear which is what they do! Less than 15% EVER show up for the hearing....they are already here and already let out into the country just as they were told would happen if they risk the trip. I listed ALL the options those illegals have to seek out asylum in the US without risking their life or that of their children if they are true asylum seekers. The fact that they do not take advantage of ANY of those places available PROVES they are hoping to just not get caught first.....asylum seeking is their "back up plan" for IF they are caught!
There is no "trying" to make them sound cruel or like unfit parents.....it's just telling what they do and that just happens to prove they are cruel and unfit parents! Would you just send a child of yours on a trip like that with NO way to ensure their safety or even their very survival? I doubt it, it actually takes a pretty rare bread of parent to do something like that. They are not hoping for a better future they are putting them at risk for becoming drug mules for cartels, gang members, victims of gang members, a "coyote" they paid knowing what kind of people they are but they still pay them and just hope they are honest and take of "their" kid.....because they are so well known for their great care and protection of the children on that trip. They put them at risk for rape, death from dehydration, death from violence, risk of becoming sex slaves, and used as domestic slaves to whomever the "coyote" may have sold them to, and again death! Those are KNOWN risk these parents just send their kids off into the desert facing....real bunch of winners there!

The better he does? His EO's keep getting overturned b the courts, the market ius already starting to fall, and he had to reverse his own policy on the border children. Even TEXANS are rebelling against his treatment of border families. You'e one of those morons who bought into his tax cut con. Tell me, if the cuts are so good, why are yours temporary nd the rich/corporation cuts permanent? And what's good about adding over a trillion to the debt?

They are in the legal process. They don't have to go to a consulate to seek asylum.

What's left to debate when you keep posting the same baseless arguments? When you stoop to pretending to know their secret motivations and plans, you leave rational thought behind.

Go ahead and be a good little brownshirt for the new Mussolini. Just remember what happened to him and his follower.

Well they sure as hell aren't legal! And they are not actual honest asylum seekers or they would have done what was safest and best and easiest for their family and children and gone to any of the dozens of consulates in Mexico that the US has there or the US Embassy there and requested asylum. They would not have risk their children's lives and safety they way they did if they were not hoping first to just NOT GET CAUGHT! Asylum was a back up plan.....nothing more.
And those that don't come with their children but just send them off on a life threatening and if not their very lives then certainly an unknown dangerous future not only on the trip but once they get here.....now those are the real criminals!
You are really getting desperate to do something other than lose the debate like you are doing because you cannot even post without the name calling and hate showing in your post. See how unhinged and desperate you and your fellow liberals are? Sad.
You insult those that truly struggled and that were truly treated unfair by comparing them and what they went through and the conditions they lived in to kids being treated and taken care of in better conditions then they have ever had in their lives......and you think for one minute it is even comparable? That shows you are not only weak on the facts but extremely stupid on the subject of history. Thought you were supposed to be smart.....and here you have to resort to name calling and making comparisons that in no way resemble one another but in your unhinged fit you come off blubbering in desperation and as a pretty pathetic excuse for an adult that says they have the iq to debate an issue on the facts.....you just don't have the ability to even speak like an intelligent adult and your certainly don't have any facts on your side! Just fake hysterics! Funny but in a "poor thing should be put in rubber room" funny.
You're really starting to sound desperately unhinged.....maybe you should take some time out in a cry tent and have a cocoa. Reality getting tough? Poor thing.

The topic is the families torn asunder at our border, not the runaway kids that the centers were created for. BTW--many of those kids you complain about have no parents, or ran away from abusive situations. Do you realize how many American kids leave home--or are thrown out--every year?
American Independent wrote:
<quoted text>

"steal kids"...omg you are getting so freaking desperate!!!

The majority.....MAJORITY, now that means MOST for dimwits like yourself......the majority of the children coming here are doing so unaccompanied by their parents......some by any adult at all! We don't have to steal those kids.....we're the ones taking them in and taking care of them after their parents booted them out and sent them on a life threatening journey to a country they would have to enter illegal to enter at all! Now that is if they made here alive, we got them before they disappeared into the child sex trafficking, drug mules for cartels, or were raped by others on the journey....and we don't get to all those kids in the last category in time for a lot of those kids. Now if there parents booting them out and doing that to them and allowing them to be prey for sex traffickers and or drug cartels doesn't screw them up for life then I'm pretty sure a soft bed, clean clothes and a shower, three meals plus snacks everyday, soccer, art, video games, education, and things like that that WE are doing for them likely would be good for them if for no other reason then to give them time to heal and come to terms with what their own parents just put them through!

From the NPR website....

In 1988, President Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act to compensate more than 100,000 people of Japanese descent who were incarcerated in internment camps during World War II. The legislation offered a formal apology and paid out $20,000 in compensation to each surviving victim. The law won congressional approval only after a decade-long campaign by the Japanese-American community.

It's neither vague nor weak. She doesn't claim to have a voice in the decision, and neither should anyone else. I personally would add, "and within the confines of the law", but that's me.

So the little Time magazine cover girl was taken by her mother out of the country Honduras without telling the father. What kind of culture is that? She separated the family. My mother never would have done that. Not yours either.

In the US she might be arrested for that.

So you can assume they all have the noblest of intentions although there are much easier safer ways to go about what they say they are seeking without putting their children through such dangerous and even deadly risk......and that is NOT you leaving rational thought behind.....BUT if I suggest their intentions are not all that noble and provide proof of that in the fact that they do have so many options for seeking asylum without putting their children at such risk if they have actual cause for asylum....then I am leaving rational thought behind. But you consider my argument on that "baseless"? Why because it makes sense and you have no argument for it except your saying they don't have to seek asylum according to my rules?
Good luck selling that to the American people come mid terms!
It's not "my rules" it's just common sense to put your children in the least amount of danger possible, NOT THE MOST just to seek asylum legally through the process. You would only risk putting your kid through all that if you first were just hoping to get in the country illegally and disappear into communities without getting caught!

Yes resorting to accusing everyone that against illegal immigration of being afraid of brown people, that should win the majority over for mid terms!! lol you are a hoot!

Some of us are related to "brown people" so we don't fear them, they are part of our family. Of course they are legal citizens too so it is a real loser of an argument for liberals. Desperate too, resorting to the typical liberal "racist" accusation.
I remember liberals doing that to most of the Democrat party that use to exist when Democrat's that voted for Obama started being called "racist" because we didn't agree with all his policies and things that went on under his administration. IF you so much as disagreed or questioned the president on anything then the liberals that were taking over the party decided the Democrat's that voted for Obama in 2008 all the sudden had become racist. It was a failed argument then and it hasn't evolved into an intelligent argument now! It's mere desperation and an attempt to stop any and all discussion on the matter because the facts don't support the liberal argument so they have to resort to name calling and putting everyone that disagrees with them into some category of "ist" or "ism" because they can't stand on the facts.
Good luck with that!

Actually there is a lot that can still be good when you're poor. Being poor or impoverished is not the worst thing in the world to be, in fact some would choose it over what they consider the worst in their life, a lot of us grew up poor and we're better for it.


Yeah, keep telling yourself that. Maybe you'll convince yourself that poverty is a good thing, you're never going to convince me it is. There's nothing good about being a poor single mother who is unable to provide even the basic necessities for a child.

Poverty sucks, especially for a child who never had any choice in who her/his parents are and has to suffer miserably because of it. And no, I didn't have to grow up so miserably, I was lucky. However, many kids do have to suffer those miseries, and that's the parents' fault. But hey, in your anti-choice world, birth is all that matters. You couldn't care less what a baby's or child's life is afterward.

I don't need to give away anything to know what being poor is like, I've been there. I grew up poor and I was never one to complain about the school lunches because many times that was the only time I ate was at lunch time at school.


If that's really true, I feel sorry for you (the child you were then, anyway). No child should have to grow up poor and go hungry during the day because her parents couldn't even provide a decent meal at home.

This kind of misery is why some women would choose abortion rather than being a poor single mother who can't provide her child with even the basic necessities. It's called being responsible.
