Isn't that standard practice?

Good to see President Trump putting American blue-collar workers first by refusing globalist demands to import exploitable 3rd world labor. The last time Republicans took away Democrats’ slaves was the Civil War!

Trump is right in a sense. Globalism has merits and demerits. Accepting immigration inconsiderately has a danger of destroying countries. Having people from different culture, religion, level of education etc. may cause serious problems. Democracy is only successful in countries where the countries are in high standards with mature civilizations.

You need only take one look at Europe to see what unchecked immigration brings. Let's see if we can get this wall built.

That right, and if the current immigration policies are not changed soon, the U.S.A. will officially be a 2nd world country.

Using terminology like "infest", "invade", "these people" and so forth is the language of the bigot. Trump is playing to his base. He's got it down to a tee.

It's a form of dehuminisation and as rabbi Laura Janner Klausner points out, “The numbing of empathy, the dehumanisation of other people through the encouragement of disdain are documented stages in history that have led to atrocities and even genocides.“What has happened on the US-Mexico border is a moment of reckoning as it points to a systemic toxicity in public discourse and action. This needs to be stopped now.”

The rampant xenephobia and paranoia that we see now is nothing new. It goes hand in hand with the type of populism and demagoguery that's currently playing out worldwide.

Which is ironic when you have a man like Trump trying to do away with democracy, due process and human rights.

If you don’t enforce your borders, you have no country. The Democrats want blanket amnesty, once these people enter the US, they shower them with entitlements and hope they vote Democrat and after that, they just abandon them. It has always been about votes for the Democratic Party, they don’t want to end chain migration, close the border, end the visa lottery program, they don’t want to end sanctuary cities, they don’t want voter IDs or ICE to do background checks or any verifications, they don’t want the police to detain or ask any questions about their legal status, the Democrats are a disease that are slowing eroding the country and they don’t care as Washington is so out of touch with what most Americans on the border want.

Watch anyone who demands that "certain people" not be given due process in court. Such people always define "certain people" flexibly, to their own advantage over you.

Just enforce the laws as written. This would mean capture those caught crossing illegally, put them in some form of detention (without separating families), have them appear in court, confirm there is no genuine need for them to stay and then deport them back to the country of origin.

Trump's stating he would bypass the judicial process is asinine. I am liberal but I agreed there is a genuine issue with illegal entry into the U.S. however doing this would be ridiculous.

Trump knows he cannot do this and I believe he knows this would not past muster with even the most conservative of higher courts and he is just blowing smoke. He is no better than the likely next leader of Mexico who wants to flood the U.S. with illegal immigrants.

Both political parties are screwing the American people on this issue - big time.

And the myths about these people continue. From the NY Times:

They underestimate immigrants’ education and overestimate both their poverty rate and their dependence on welfare.

Most migrants from poor countries never make it to the United States or Western Europe, instead moving to other developing countries nearby. A little over half of emigrants from Africa settle in other African countries, while 60 percent of Asian migrants relocate elsewhere in Asia.

Riiiight. When Melania entered the US on a tourist visa and immediately began working, she should have been shown the door right there and then.

Melania Trump is not relevant to this discussion.

@Toasted - That is a very good article and I agree with much of it.

I am all for immigration as long as it is done legally and through process.

What Trump said was beyond stupid. However, what is happening in the U.S. is not being done legally and through proper process. Perhaps the U.S. should establish a larger facility south of the border for people to apply for asylum, etc. Then people can go through the process prior to crossing the border. The likely outcome however would probably be people denied asylum in the U.S. would still try to cross.

The Democrats want blanket amnesty

No they don't. That's pure rhetoric. No Democrat has said that ever.

@Laguna - here is an article about what you write

https://www.vox.com/2018/2/14/17012134/melania-trump-parents-visa

I do not think this proves or disproves your point. Just information. The article indicates there is no proof or evidence she was paid when she first entered the U.S. She received in H1-B visa shortly after entering (long before she met Trump by the way... she entered in the 90's).

What the article does discuss (a much more interesting perspective) is the fact that her parents have been in the U.S. for a long time and their visa status is unknown. It is likely Melania sponsored them and brought them to the U.S. The hypocrisy here is that this is the type of visa "chain migration" that Trump wants to disallow. No one seems to want to answer what type of visa Melania's parents are on.

For the Trump supporters - yes this article is biased against Trump - however I think the facts check out pretty well.

As much as I dislike Trump I have a bit of respect for Melania. I am not sure I could hold up as well as she has giving all of the vile things said about her and her son. As I have said before I do not think she wants anything to do with being First Lady. There are times where it appears she does not want to have anything to do with being Trump's wife either.

What ticks me off is that I agree illegal immigration to the U.S. is an issue that needs to be addressed and here we have a President who came into office saying he was going to address it but instead it seems like his actions have resulted in huge steps backward and we are now further away from meaningful action on this issue than we were before he entered office.

Yes, liberals do avoid facts all the time. You look at a tomato see it’s bright red color and the liberal will say, No, it’s an eggplant. Yup, the Unicornverse in all of its perfect splendor.

No, it has always been about votes. I find it funny how foreigners try to tell me what’s going on in my country who grew up in a border State, too, too funny.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/07/the-democrats-immigration-mistake/528678/

This is excatly the reason why the left will never agree to any immigration reform that curbs illegal immigration.

A larger explanation is political. Between 2008 and 2016, Democrats became more and more confident that the country’s growing Latino population gave the party an electoral edge. To win the presidency, Democrats convinced themselves, they didn’t need to reassure white people skeptical of immigration so long as they turned out their Latino base. “The fastest-growing sector of the American electorate stampeded toward the Democrats this November,” **Salondeclared after Obama’s 2008 win. “If that pattern continues, the GOP is doomed to 40 years of wandering in a desert.”**

So all of this boo hooing and grandstanding is very clear as to the true intentions of what the left always wanted, the problem with all this is, they should be honest about it. I don’t hate Dems for what they really want, I get it, it’s vital to their very political survival, but what I hate is the boldface lie that they are so concerned about these kids and illegal immigrants, if they really cared, they would care about the thousands of Americans that are locked up in the same situation and how

“A majority of likely voters think illegal immigrant parents are more to blame for the latest immigration crisis than the Trump administration, according to a Rasmussen poll released Thursday.

When migrant families are caught illegally crossing the southwest border and subsequently separated for criminal prosecution, 54 percent of American voters say the adults are to blame for breaking the law.

Only 35 percent believe the government is at fault for enforcing the law, while 11 percent are unsure of who is”.

As I posted there 335 judges nation wide and not all judges are dealing with the people crossing the southern border. Immigrants also arrive vis other ports of entry and there are also 2 million visa overstayers.

The cost of the 2.3 million Americans in prisons is $80 billion.

Returning illegal entrants straight back used to happen all the time, especially with Mexicans, to whom you could simply show the door. Trump, though, wants to prosecute all illegal entrants.

The only people who should be granted time in front of a judge are those who follow the proper procedures for asylum. Enough of this "there are no borders" nonsense that nobody thinks about any other country than the US.

Simple question. The front door of your home. Do you consider this a border of sorts to your home? You expect people you don't know to knock first, wait for an answer before entering, the leave and try again later if no answer? Or you think anyone is allowed in, no rules needed to be followed?

There's an average of 6-7 immigration judges per star with a backlog of 700,000 cases. There are illegal immigrant courts with 70-100 immigrated being tried at once. The Southern Border immigrants are being told voluntarily deport and you'll get you kids back which was the true purpose of the Trump zero policy.

The USA is a nation of laws.

People entering the USA illegally are provided due process, which is a right for everyone.

Offering voluntary deportations without any processing would make sense, but it is up to the person being charged to decide. If I'd just spent $6000 to a "coyote" to help me cross the border illegally, got caught, I'd want due process for the tiny chance that my situation would meet the minimal standards for asylum.

Yes, it would be easier, but it wouldn't be proper under the American justice system. President Trump doesn't have the power to disable this part of the constitution.

Reminds me, time to pay my annual ACLU gift.

Yamataya v. Fisher, 189 U.S. 86 (1903).  A young Japanese girl -- age 16 -- was deported because she had no one here and would be a "Ward of the State." Rather then make her "our" burden, she was sent back to Japan.

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the deportation and even ruled that the courts have no say-so in the matter. As long as the deportee was fairly tried by the authorities, the immigrants had no right to appeal.

The law is on Pres. Trump's side on this one unless there has been another case that has overturned it.

For those who may have made it into the interior of the country and lived for a few months/years, then give them due process and a hearing.  But for those right at the border or who are caught not far and in the process and have not established themselves in the USA, send them back to wherever they come from.

“What President Trump has suggested here is both illegal and unconstitutional," said Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project. "Any official who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution and laws should disavow it unequivocally."

When the Prez floats an idea, that isn't grounds for impeachment. Heck, even if he tries to make an exec order, that isn't grounds for impeachment. Lying under oath is, but he will claim executive privilege, just like Obama, Nixon, and Clinton did.

It's always been about Legal and Illegal. Some folks try to blur the lines. As I've said before, when you enable people to illegally stay in the US, you're also enabling the governments of the country they are originally from to not take responsibility for their actions and never become better so their people don't want to leave. If people have to stay where their from, they'll be more motivated to make things better for themselves when they finally say, "enough is enough, we want something better."

It's always been, "I'll go to this country because it's better than my country" instead of, "Why is my country not as good as that country. I should do something to help make it better."

Its just an emotional issue. Trump and his supporters intentionally targeted children, hoping that images of their suffering would get them better concessions in the immigration debate. People stood up to that, and the response from Trump and his fans was that we support illegal immigration with open borders and endless free entitlements with drivers licenses and voting rights.

The question is how we can convince Trump fans that the desire to protect children from predators doesn’t mean we support illegal immigrants raping and murdering everywhere. They somehow have the two things linked in their minds.

And yet when Republicans try to enforce these laws or come up with legislation to stop it, the Dems say, No way. I don’t know about you, but but when you claim to be for something and then in reality you go against, but claim to be for it, does make people wonder.

Ok, so then Do you agree the Democrats should put it into permanently and finally see this border into and chain migration, end the visa lottery program, end catch and release, end sanctuary cities and help fund the wall.

Yeah, but if you had read anything about the bipartisan bills you’d know that those things are covered either directly or indirectly, except for sanctuary cities which isn’t a federal issue. The fact is you won’t research on your own and you obviously won’t believe anything I tell you, so you keep yourself in the dark on the issue and default to spreading anger and making wild assumptions about moderates and the left.

It should come as no surprise the the guy who is the angriest is also the guy who is the most ignorant.

Due process for aliens who illegally cross into your country? What section in the U.S. Constitution guarantees due process for aliens who illegally cross our borders?

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

Funny how fear is always used as an excuse for surrendering our rights and liberties, or taking them away from folks who we think aren't as worthy of them as the majority, all in the name of "protection." On the night of September 4, 2003, news correspondent Ted Koppel on the talk show "Nightline" in his closing statement, nailed it about the dangers of the PATRIOT act, where fear was used as a weapon by the government to justify taking away civil rights from certain suspected folks prior to a trial. Granted, this topic isn't about government overreach as it pertained to privacy back in 2003; nonetheless, it is still a government overreach with respect to due process of law today, which is another fundamental Constitutional law that must be adhered to.

Here's Koppel closing statement. True as it was back in 2003 as it is today about protecting civil rights:

The men who drafted our Constitution, who framed our civil rights and protected our various freedoms under the law would, I suspect, retch at some of the bone headed, self-serving misinterpretations of their intentions that are so often used these days to undermine the very freedoms they pretend to safeguard. The miracle of American law is not that it protects popular speech, or the privacy of the powerful, or the homes of the privileged, but rather, that the least among us, those with the fewest defenses, those suspected of the worst crimes, the most despised in our midst, are presumed innocent until proven guilty. That remains as revolutionary a concept now as it was in the 1780s. It makes protecting the nation against terrorism excruciatingly difficult, but we cannot arbitrarily suspend the rights of one category of suspects without endangering all the others.

Due process for aliens who illegally cross into your country? What section in the U.S. Constitution guarantees due process for aliens who illegally cross our borders?

Read the 14th Amendment of the Constitution - but if you don't have time for that, the USSC ruled in Zadvydas v. Davis (2001) that "due process" of the 14th Amendment applies to all aliens in the United States whose presence maybe or is "unlawful, involuntary or transitory." Also, the USSC ruled on Almeida-Sanchez v. United States (1973) that all criminal charge-related elements of the Constitution's amendments (the First, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and the 14th) are applicable to US aliens who are legal or illegally present in the country.

We live in a world of really nice and exclusive country clubs with all of the amenities versus the really crummy type of country clubs. Of course if people are being abused or getting killed in the crummy ones, they're going to storm the gates or walls of the really nice country club and try to get in.

The trick is how to make their own country clubs nice enough so they don't want to go through all of the trouble and danger of illegally entering the exclusive (Gold Member) country club.

It's only human to want a better life, especially if the country you're fleeing a country where the good guys and the bad guys are both doing bad things. Look no further than Mexico and the corruption which exists there between law enforcement and the cartels. You can't tell the good guys from the bad guys.

His EO stopped the separation of criminal adults from "the children" they bring to shield them, without changing the criminal charges against those adults. democrats criticism of his EO reveals their real agenda: to excuse the adults' criminal actions.

Now, families are no longer separated, but the illegal aliens don't get to stay, and are reunited with "the children" when they are all sent back to our southern border and told to pound sand.

@zichi,

3 million refugees have been resettled in the U.S. since Congress passed the Refugee Act of 1980.

Yeah a crucial mistake to get this law on the books.

Passed unanimously by the -(democratic)- Senate in late 1979 and signed into law by your (D) President Jimmy Carter in early 1980,

President Jimmy Carter. Gallop pole 2007 The worst President of the United States ever! 1% rating.

Fact-The main objectives of the act were to create a new definition of refugee based on the one created at the UN Convention and Protocol on the Status of Refugees, raise the limitation from 17,400 to 50,000 refugees admitted each fiscal year. That is a lot of new democratic voters for the base. Build the wall #MAGA!

If you want to solve the problem, start at the source- companies and businesses that hire illegals. Impose draconian penalties on such employers and they will be forced to hire legal immigrants and citizens. This will remove the incentive for most of those who are crashing the border. Let's be honest, genuine asylum seekers are very few in number compared to economic migrants. This might make the price of orgasmic lettuce go up by a dime, but I'm sure most people can afford it.

At the same time, get ID on those who try to cross illegally. Fingerprints, biometric data, dna, whatever. Then send them home. Keep a database. Those who try again do hard time in federal prison, breaking rocks and digging coal.

President Trump is following the law. Don't like the law? Change the law. Except the democrats really don't want to change a thing except to give them non-negotiable open borders. The upcoming mid-term elections will prove It's never a good political idea to take the side of illegal invaders over Americans.

Fortunately, the mask is finally off the open borders E.U.-style democrats. President Trump called their bluff with his E.O. and predictably, they are squealing. They now realize the illegal immigration voter/open borders charade has been finally outted. The democrats will have no choice but to go back to scouring cemeteries for voters.

Like I said, things will get worse. Trump is going to lie constantly about immigration and get every person to the right of the left in an extreme state of fear of immigrants. You guys will be so afraid that you'll be frothing at the mouth to get to those polls and vote.

Come on up to Canada, get away from the US of Mordor. We just had a successful Pride weekend, are going to argue over free Pharmacare next election to match our healthcare, and our craft beer is better ;)

Now that option would have made a lot of sense for the French jogger in Canada who accidentally strayed across the border and ended up with a week's incarceration. Just spin them around and point them back in the correct direction.
