"Actually this is incorrect and you really need to read up on exactly the executive order Trump instituted. First it was only a misdemeanor to cross the border illegally not a criminal act. There is no president before Trump that opened up the border and if you want to use Obama, then you really need to get your facts straight. No one changed the law, this is what it has been for quite some time."
Actually, I don't believe I'm incorrect because I have read enough. Changing the punishment doesn't change the law, avoiding punishment does. It nullifies the law. Changing it to a felony just made it a more serious offense, they didn't change existing law. I would risk a misdemeanor for the chance to come to America. Wouldn't you? Hell I'd probably risk a felony if Obama or Bush were still president. No President has ever given up our border officially but essentially sure. Obama rang the dinner bell, it is a fact. The democrats don't hide their open border intentions, they are Europe lite. Sanctuary cities completely ignore federal immigration law. They nullify law. They want to abolish ICE, you're going to try and convince me that nothing has changed? Let's be realistic. I"m saying the law hasn't changed, I'm not disputing that. I'm saying some don't follow the law and it's why we are here today.
Even changing it to a felony is not the bad part as I stated. I see nothing wrong with making the law stricter and enforcing it. My problem comes down as always to execution. The problem with the whole border change was how sloppy and inhuman way it was executed.
I agree. They border has been sloppy for decades. I don't see the inhumane part, taking them in at all was a blessing on their part. Sending your 11 year old across 3 countries with birth control in case they get raped. Just so you can have an anchor in the states. Those people are inhumane pieces of shit.
"First you are going to lock these people up, for how long. It's not like we have the capacity to start throwing a lot of these people into jail for a long period of time. The whole point of the other administrations doing the catch and release is because the amount of time and money needed to lock everyone up, house the children in a humane way will cost billions. The current system did not have enough judges to support the change. So now when you need to give them at least due process it takes over a year to get a court date. Trump answer to this was give them no due process which then goes against the whole law premis I see Trump supporters always throw out on this subject. "We only need Laws for Americans, everyone else we just treat like dirt on the bottom of our shoes".
I don't want to lock them up at all, I want to send them home so they can get in line like everyone else. Immigration is for us, so we can import people that will make our lives better. They assimilate into the system and contribute, make a better life for their kids. Immigration as a philosophy isn't for the world's benefit. You have no wonder about the resources that are strained with the "catch and release" program? How much strain is put on hospitals and schools? How much strain is put on social security and welfare programs? Look at the States and small cities they have been devastated not just in America but all over Europe. Just shut up and take this change, right? I don't fall for it. It's scumbags securing dependency votes, the democrats don't do shit out of their good will. That's why they "catch and release" them by bus all across the country. Spread the wealth.
"Next, they did not have the facility to do this properly. Throwing up interm tents with barely any trained personnel to handle all the children especially when you think a lot of them are under the age of 5. Now you have all these kids you have to do something with. What are you going to do with them for the term their parents are locked up waiting for a trail that could take over a year to a court date. Next we have the situation where no one kept track of the children and their parents. You lock them up, throw their children in an interim camp without any identification as to who their parents are, then when you release their parents and send them back over the border you have no system to get their children back to them. No system for the parents to know how their children are doing and no communication."
Why is a flood of 5 year olds at the border? They wouldn't have came all of this way if they didn't believe they would get in right? They shouldn't have thrown up tents? What are you suggesting, that they build a giant facility and make this the norm? They should have gotten a few cargo planes. Parents can go home and the kids can be given to foster care, that would be my offer. Or they can go home with you and you can try the right way. Tell the people of their countries just to send their kids by plane. It's safer. The parents would never be allowed to come here though. They would be on a block list.
"As for the wall, it's not congress fault it falls on the same person who stated we will build something without the proper support to get it done. The wall is Trump stump point and getting it done belongs to him because it was never supported by anyone in congress to begin with. It's easy to throw this blame at Congress since it always needed them to pass it but it's the president job who wanted it to make it happen. Like any negotiations, you have to give up something to get something. Trump never tried to get Democrats on board with anything. If there was a problem with getting his own party to support what he wanted like the Republican healthcare bill, he blames the democrats. If something was viewed negative he found some way to either blame democrats, Obama or Hillary. Always shifting the blame but never making the effort he needed to get things done."
It is absolutely congress' fault and that's why it's easy to blame them. Actually it has been supported in congress for a long time. The 80s amnesty bill required a wall or proper border fencing, it was never funded and still hasn't been. It's not democrat or republican fault, its congress' fault. It would be useless trying to get the democrats on board with anything, literally anything. Most of them are insane and they vote in a collective mob. If you get one or two that break off then you are lucky. He needs republican votes. The last spending bill was a travesty but he said he needed it to build up the military, he has built up the military so i'm giving him the benefit of the doubt for funding all of those useless democrat and republican endeavors. In the next spending bill if he does the same thing then i'm with you. Not just the border wall but the insane amount of pork that we waste money on. He said he would shut down the government if they didn't give him something realistic. I'll believe it when i see it. I'm hoping for it, those useless hacks need to be put on notice.
"I do not care about Trumps presentation as long as its effective. I find that what he believe is effective when he was in the private sector is effective in the public but its not working out that way. Moving people politically and forgetting that your enemy can easily be your allie is where his lack of understand seems to be. Currently I do not see Trump style actually working. Right now things are in the beginning faze so there is still a lot of time to see how things shape up but currently the things where he needs others to support his efforts I see no results. A lot of bluster but no real sense of what to do."
They are working but you think it will fail in the long run. That's perfectly fine but i'm not wrong by saying the current results are working for most things. It' not the absolute shit show that you make it out to be, results wise.
