    How can there be a crisis when all these potential Democrats are arriving?

    What I heard on the radio is that as they cross the border, these folks look for a border patrol agent to claim asylum. No need to run from the Border Patrol. It's a good deal for them as usually they get shelter, food for a few days before being released. Unfortunately, there's no more capacity. Too many folks coming in claiming asylum. Not enough shelter.

    Yep, as he slow-walked this to "send a message" and then cut aid to the Northern Triangle Countries and then blamed the Dems for the results. But it's clear that his base really don't want to deal with the facts of what he has done.

    Gee, I wonder if his base had their children put into cages whether they'd still continue to support him? :rolleyes:

    You could invite them to your house with no vetting process, just a thought.

    If they are here illegally it is not "improper" to detain them.

    If they were here illegally, ICE wouldn't be dumping them in Yuma.

    Where should they put them while deciding whether or not they qualify to stay based on their refugee claims? I mean, we can all point fingers and gripe about how the authorities are handling the situation, but what do you propose as a solution?

    In similar situations, the Canadian government rented out whole hotels.

    I guess that is one way, but an added burden on the taxpayers.

    Responsibility, not burden.

    I disagree with you there.

    Refugee claimants aren't criminals. They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect like human beings, not housed in pens like livestock.

    The way to reduce the cost to the taxpayer is to ensure that they get a proper hearing quickly.

    It's being spun the same way same way as when certain news outlets claimed Trump was emboldening White Nationalists pre-election when the Hopewell church was burned in 2016 in Greenville, Mississippi in a fake hate crime.

    The same way as when a Trump rally supposedly looked like "a scene from Nazi Germany" when he jokingly asked them to raise their hand and swear an oath. .

    The same way as when Trump was partially blamed for influencing the Mosque shooter in New Zealand just because his name was mentioned (along with a number of others and supposed reasons why, but apparently that's not important)

    I know there are many more examples and I assume there will be many more as we continue toward 2020.

    Would like a list of crimes that have been confirmed to have been committed by white supremacists? There are lots.
