I never did although the statement I made was true - that Obama didn't care about illegal aliens!


So, Obama didn't care?  so?  Like I said your example is quite limited. don't y0u think?

Actually, this is becoming a huge problem here in the Southwest.  The immigrants come across and search out the first CBP agent then can find to present themselves for asylum.  They crossed illegally but turn themselves in right away.  

 

Now CBP is housing, feeding and providing medical care for thousands of immigrants.  The regional commanders are begging for more funds and staff but nobody wants to work for CBP with the reputation Trump has dropped on them. Plus, CBP needs to have its budget increased. 

 

When is Trump going to stop the problem at the source, like Obama used to do?

The only thing that will stop a lot of these happenings is a  comprehensive immigration law that will deal on how we deal with deportations in this country. and a law that will close so many loopholes that exist today in our laws that  simply complicate matters.

You can deport Mexicans within 24 hours without an immigration court proceedings but not the rest of LatinAmericans that come in. 
There is a need to simply deport individual in an appropriate amount of time without the need for immigration court proceedings that the  only thing that they do is delay, delay and delay. More attorneys live in this country that continuously put delay actions into all of this cases that is apparently known. 

Close the amount of non necessary steps for deportation and you will not have the problems that we have now. We need a comprehensive immigration law that will deal with not only illegals from the southern border but also with all others that overstay their visas. student visas, and H1b  visas. they also contribute to the number of illegals in this country.


Yes but remember, you can fix all that inability to govern simply by bulding a wall

Border Crossings Hit 10-Year High (ILLEGAL)

158 Views
Message 18 of 18

The U.S. Border Patrol apprehended more than 66,000 migrants at the Southern border in February, the highest total for a single month in almost a decade.

 

The majority of those arrested were migrant families or children traveling alone or without a parent, according to figures released Tuesday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Many of the migrants say they're fleeing criminal gangs and poverty in Central America to seek asylum in the United States.

 

"This is clearly both a border security and humanitarian crisis," said CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan at a press briefing.

 

Between October and last week, Border Patrol agents have picked up more than 260,000 people — a 90 percent jump over the same period a year ago.

 

This is clearly both a border security and humanitarian crisis.

 

"The entire system right now is at full capacity. Actually, it's overwhelmed," said Manuel Padilla, a veteran Border Patrol agent who's now director of Joint Task Force-West in San Antonio, part of the Department of Homeland Security.

 

Even with the recent climb, illegal border crossings are still well below historical highs. But the makeup of the migrant population has changed dramatically from 20 years ago, when it was mostly single men from Mexico. Border Patrol officials say their infrastructure wasn't designed for the flood of migrant families and children arriving now.

 

"Everything is maxed out and it's causing a lot of issues, because the agents are being assigned to areas that are not border security related," Padilla said, like providing food and medical care for the families and children in their custody.

 

Since last year, Border Patrol agents say, they have routinely encountered large groups of a hundred or more migrants at the border, many of them arriving by bus from Guatemala. According to immigration authorities, the passengers consist almost entirely of families and children who are looking for Border Patrol agents to turn themselves in to. Agents say they've encountered 70 large groups since last year.
