Description

Yes, youʼve heard about the family separations. Youʼve heard about the travel ban. But there are dozens of ways the Trump administration is cracking down on immigration across many agencies, sometimes in ways so small and technical it doesnʼt make headlines. This week, the quiet bureaucratic war that’s even targeting legal immigrants.

you have either wilfully or ignorantly misrepresented the asylum laws. The asylum seeker, from El Salvador, was required to request asylum in Mexico, not the United States. trivial point? No, that is the international agreement. You don't get to choose which country you want to seek asylum in. Also, Mexico, to their credit, actually made it known to the caravan, that asylum was available for all. why do you lie?

Thankful I listened, conflicted over how "we" have become. I was adopted by immigrants, and how I am still considered foreign just because of my name. I hate how stupid people are and how they glory in voicing their pathetic opinion. Kinda like the Beckers. STFU ignorant rabble.
