As Trump Enforces Federal Law On Border, Asylum Mooches Find Other Nations To Head To

All President Trump is doing is enforcing federal law as passed by the duly elected Legislative branch, signed into law by duly elected previous presidents. And, shockingly, the people streaming to the U.S. find that they can, in fact, go elsewhere. They just won’t be given everything free like here

As Trump tightens the U.S. border, asylum applicants seek refuge in Mexico, elsewhere

The idea was to reach the United States. But when the young Honduran mother arrived in Mexico this summer, with only a handful of pesos and a 4-year-old in tow, she realized how difficult that had become.

And so she came up with a new plan.

“The American Dream is costly, very costly,” lamented Iris, 32, sitting on a curb outside the Mexican refugee office in this southern city. She spoke on the condition that only her first name be used, for fear of harm from gang members in Honduras.

“That’s still the dream. But if they give me Mexican papers, I’ll stay here.”

Iris is one in the soaring number of migrants seeking refuge throughout the Americas. And while the United States remains the world’s top recipient of asylum petitions, countries such as Mexico, with much smaller asylum systems, are seeing far greater increases.

Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, and Belize are all seeing massive increases. Of course, this doesn’t mean they are being granted asylum.

The surge of asylum seekers in the hemisphere stems from a cascade of crises: the implosion of Venezuela, a crackdown on dissidents by the authoritarian government of Nicaragua, and agricultural disasters and gang violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. (snip)

“We already have more than enough” migrants, Panamanian President Laurentino Cortizo, said last month after meeting with Kevin McAleenan, the acting secretary of homeland security.

A lot to Panama are Venezuelans. Isn’t socialism great?

The Mexican city of Tapachula, around 10 miles from the Guatemalan border, offers a glimpse of the drastic change in migrant flows. By 7 o’clock one recent morning, scores of Central Americans, Haitians and West Africans had lined up outside a low-slung, unmarked building. It was the office of the Mexican refugee commission, known by its Spanish initials, COMAR. Around two-thirds of the country’s asylum applications are processed here.

So…..not all from Central America?

The Trump administration says many asylum applications are bogus, filed by poor, job-seeking migrants who invent stories of persecution to improve their chances of being accepted. Officials say legitimate asylum seekers should seek refu­ge in the first country they are safe — not travel thousands of miles farther to the United States.

“The asylum program is a scam,” Trump said in April.

Um, it is. A lot are just looking for free stuff, as promised by Democrats. And they want to jump the line of those who are doing it the right way.

    Teach in your state what freebies are given to undocumented aliens ?
    Should each sovereign state decide how to treat aliens ?

    • Kye says:

      No. Aliens, the treatment thereof and naturalization are federal powers. You really should try reading the Constitution. Article l Section 8: (Congress) has the power to establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization……throughout the United States. Not that a Constitutional directive matters to leftists any more. If you can “buy back” guns you never sold us declaring twenty or thirty million illegal foreigners voting Democrats is a walk in the park.

    • formwiz says:

      That would be states rights and federalism.

      Lefties hate that.

    Sorry TEACH, it isn’t a law, it’s a made-up policy by tRump’s DOJ and DHS, and struck down by the courts.

      struck down by the courts

      No, just one court.

      One of Zippy’s hand-picked activists, who will be overturned at the first appeal.

      And EOs do have the force of law as much as appellate court decisions.

      it’s a made-up policy

      Do the words, “I have a pen and a phone”, ring any bells (phone or otherwise)?

      Wotta maroon. I can see why the bear suit keeps coming out.

    “We will accept anyone on humanitarian reasons that needs to come here,” acting Commissioner Mark Morgan said during a news conference at the White House. “If your life is in jeopardy and you’re in the Bahamas and you want to get to the United States, you’re going to be allowed to come to the United States, whether you have travel documents or not.”

    But soon after Morgan’s news conference, his boss, President Donald Trump, seemed to contradict him by saying that anyone coming to the United States from the Bahamas will not be allowed into the country without proper documentation.

    “We have to be very careful. Everybody needs totally proper documentation because, look, the Bahamas had some tremendous problems with people going to the Bahamas that weren’t supposed to be there,” Trump told reporters.

    “I don’t want to allow people that weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to come into the United States, including some very bad people and some very bad gang members, and some very, very bad drug dealers. So, we’re going to be very strong on that.”

    • formwiz says:

      Exactly right.

      Don’t open a one way door while you’re trying to close another.

      Idiot boy hates it because trump is winning the battle of the border, so the Lefties would love opening another gateway.

      You lose.

      Again.

      We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning.

      He’s right, you’re wrong. That makes you the dumbass.
