    Distilling the US immigration debate

    Distilling the US immigration debate

    18 July 20190 comments
    The polarisation of the migration debate in the US came into stark relief this week.
    President Donald Trump took his anti-immigrant policies to new levels with a sweeping ban on asylum-seekers while also launching twitter attacks on four female Democrats of colour to leave the country.
    New York’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Latino; Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar and Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib are Muslim; and Massachusetts’ Ayanna Pressley is black and all four have become favourite targets for Trump in recent weeks.
    Meanwhile, Democrat presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren has called for decriminalizing crossing the border without papers, reducing immigration detention, and increasing funding for aid to Central America in her campaign’s newly unveiled comprehensive immigration platform.
    At a League of United Latin American Citizens event in Milwaukee, Senator Warren released a proposal that unsurprisingly serves as a clear rebuke of President Trump’s immigration agenda.

    But observers say President Trump’s rhetoric is aimed at his own base and with a view to improving his re-election prospects.

    One conservative pundit even said the outburst was designed to distract from his failures on the issue.

    “More illegal aliens are entering America than ever before on President Trump’s watch because of Trump’s broken campaign promises and presidential directives and policies,” said William Gheen of the group Americans for Legal Immigration.

    During his presidential campaign, President Trump promised to force Mexico to build a wall along its border with the United States and claimed he was the only Republican capable of ending illegal immigration.

    Since taking office, there has been no request of Mexico that it pay for a wall, and the president has tried to
    raidbillionsof dollars from the military budget to pay for it.

    Meanwhile, the legality of the new sweeping ban on asylum seekers, remains unclear.

    “Today’s rule is blatantly intended to slam the door on the vast majority of those seeking asylum from Central America, and I suspect the courts will have something to say about that,” said Bill Weld, a former top lawyer at the Justice Department and now a Republican challenger to Trump for the 2020 nomination.

    “The legal and moral obligation to welcome those legitimately seeking asylum in the US is part of our basic fabric. How many of us are here today because our ancestors at some point made a difficult journey here to find better lives or to escape very real dangers?” Mr Weld told the US media.
    Existing laws set out the process for would-be asylum-seekers in the US, which matches with international treaties that the US has signed.
    These permit foreign nationals seeking asylum in the United States to present themselves at a port of entry.
    The Trump administration’s new rule requires them to seek asylum from the first country they are traversing en route to the United States.
    But migration lawyers argue the move contravenes the US Constitution.
    President Trump himself seems to be focused less the law changes and more on his attacks on the four female Democrats.
    The President has a history of openly appealing to racists and nativists since his false 2011 claims questioning President Obama’s religion and country of birth.
    In a speech announcing his own candidacy in 2015, Trump called Mexican migrants “rapists” and “drug dealers.”
    And during his two and a half years in office, Trump has said there were “good people” among the neo-Nazis who marched on Charlottesville in 2017.
    Just as President Trump was launching his attacks on the four Democrat women, Senator Warren was launching her bid for Democrat candidacy.
    Her immigration plan proposes protecting schools, medical facilities, and courthouses from immigration enforcement and ending programs that allow local law enforcement to be deputized as federal immigration officers.
    Amid reports of unsafe and unhealthy conditions in immigration detention centres along the US’ southern border, Senator Warren plans to reduce detention overall and eliminate private detention facilities.
    As the administration announced sweeping bans on asylum seekers and cuts to the refugee intake, Senator Warren pledged to admit six to eight times as many refugees as Trump has in her first years as president, and to implement proposals that would make it easier for asylum seekers to get a day in court.
    And as millions of undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children live in legal limbo as the administration sunsets the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals program, Senator Warren is calling to expand the program for DREAMers and their families, as well as those with Temporary Protected Status.
    Warren is also calling for more support for legal immigration, including redistributing unused visas to address the millions currently in the backlog waiting for a way to enter the United States, and lower barriers to naturalization – like application fees – facing green card holders.

    Where is the "moral" obligation of their President?

    Stop dumping their responsibilities to their own citizens on our backs!

    It is "morally" irrehensible to think that it is the American taxpayers obligation to take in and pay for the entire world.

    Who the HELL made up this non-sense! NWO Bush's, Clinton, Obama, and the rest of them is who!

    No mention of the U.N. going in, doing their job, we pay them billions to solve these countries problems. Not pay them the BUCKS and they pass the buck back to us for more money and dump these people in our laps to further pay for, not only monetarily, but in the destruction of our country with their crimes!

    Many of these U.N. members are human rights violators themselves wanting to DUMP their own people on Europe, USA, and Canada. Hell no. You keep your people.

    Defund the U.N. and boot them off our soil. Replace them with an organization that WILL end this problem.

    They are fleeing "gangs", if that is indeed the case, send troops to round them up and put them in prison. Central America is comprised of small countries. Those troops could knock that out in 30 days!

    They make money off of drugs and human trafficking and the BILLIONS their illegal aliens send back to their countries every year. This is nothing but a SCAM on the American people, using these people as pawns, and we are sick of it.

    These people are "economic" migrants who want to come here for free stuff, a job, and a better life.

    We have our own citizens we are MORALLY OBLIGATED to take care of!!!

    Slam the door shut!

    We are 22 trillion in debt! We cannot sustain this unrelenting invasion of the entire world coming here.

    It is preposterous that these countries presidents are PERMITTED to get away with dumping their citizens on foreign countries with the expectations that we take in two billion people on the planet and pay for them!

    They have land, they have resources, deport them all.

    Venezuela is loaded with oil, has a whole ocean of fish to eat. No TPS!

    Stop issuing these countries Visa's and start putting the screws to them!

    Turn them away at the border and stop kicking this can down the road another 1 year, 5 years, or 50 years!

    We have had it.

    We are sick of the swamp rats LIES for 5 decades to stop this invasion! It is full blown crises and this powder keg is gonna blow!
