What about the kids in cages at the border? Is that only bad when the Orange man does it or does Biden get a free pass on this one because his buddy Barry built the cages in the first place?

It's bad when any presidential administration does it. Period. End of discussion. Anyone who tried to defend it under any president needs to grow TF up.

So, to the points:

1. If your first response to criticism of Trump's policy was, "but whatabout ClintonBushObama!", this is akin to you getting caught taking a giant #### on someone's porch and then arguing that the three guys before you did it, too.

2. In Trump's case, he took that giant turd and smeared it all over the house. Where he changed the policy was the zero tolerance measure, something Sessions made clear was for punitive purposes. As with most decisions with the Trump admin, the cruelty was the point. So it was bad before Trump. Trump intentionally made it worse because he's just a buffoon who thinks cruelty solves problems.

3. If Biden isn't sending people down to the border right this very second to put an end to it, then #### him too. And what should happen is criminal charges for those "just following orders" so it'll scare the #### out of any immigration official from doing it again.

That wasn't the case under Trump's policy. Even if you tried to enter at a legal port of entry to seek asylum, you were still torn from your kids.

Here. Check it out before you respond.

But a Guatemalan mother named Sandy tells a different story on this week's episode of Reveal, in partnership with The Texas Tribune. After years of threats and harassment from gangs and local police in her hometown of Mazatenango, Sandy fled with her four kids and attempted to enter the U.S. legally in May. She requested asylum for her and her children at an international bridge connecting Brownsville and Matamoros, Mexico.

The bridge is an official port of entry into the U.S., and Sessions himself has encouraged migrant families to cross the border this way — rather than crossing the border illegally — in order to avoid being separated.

But Sandy was separated from her children — all young boys, one just a few months old — anyway.

want to talk actual policy, you need to discuss the family separation policy introduced in 2018. That's the issue. And there are still children that have yet to be reunited with their parents because of it.

It was a faulty, bad policy under previous presidents. Trump looked at it and said, "Ooo, here's how we make it much more cruel."

Anyone who attempts to defend is a bad person, period, and certainly can't claim to be a Christian.

If you think we need to curtail illegal immigration (and you may not, I don't recall), what is the solution for families (legit or fake) traveling with children, if we agree (and again, we may not) that simply letting them go and asking them to come back to court often results in them not coming back and simply blending into the background in the USA?

Good question, and yeah, I'm not in favor of "open borders" for a variety of reasons.

If they seek asylum and do it the right way (or, examine case by case to see if it's legit even if they didn't follow protocol), process them accordingly. Together.

If it's simple illegal immigration, detain them together. Send them back if possible. Under the previous admins, children were separated from adults when it couldn't be determined that they were related and they were trying to place them. Under Trump, they said no matter what, we're taking your kid. Asylum. Actually their parents. Everyone.

But I'll risk a family getting away with it any day and blending in than tearing some toddler away from his mother. And putting him in a chainlink pen.

Is that when families with kids get preferential treatment at border crossing time, we just made immigrant kids the TSA precheck of border crossing. If a policy that separates even one toddler from their parents on this side of the border is wrong, than so is a policy that causes even one toddler to be kidnapped or purchased from their parents to ease entry.

It’s the definition of dammmed if you do and dammmed if you don’t.

I understand the door it opens. But I'd rather risk that than have one innocent child ripped from his or her mother.

And again, under the Trump policy, it was done to those who sought asylum through legal means.

ICE's system here isn't perfect, but I'd rather have a child detained here than with a coyote I suppose.

Not advocating for that option so much as saying I don't like either option as we are creating stress and trauma here by being tough, and potentially worse situations for kids south of the border by being weak.

I think you're closest to the solution by discussing detainment together. Seems like a logistical nightmare though, but so is the whole situation. Much would be helped by actually putting some teeth to penalties applied to illegal employers. The job seekers and opportunists would decrease quite a bit due to lack of demand, and the percentage of those who were actual asylum qualifiers would go up quite a bit.

The Bible speaks decisively to this issue. Romans 13:1-2 says: "Obey the government, for God is the One who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the law of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow."

A scripture pissing match with me on this one.

Just because it's a law doesn't mean it is just. This case is indefensible. You are trying to focus on the law breaking of the parent (or, in many cases under Trump, still done legally) while ignoring the plight of the child.

It's very easy not to cause that harm to them but you're defending it. So no, that's not the trait of a "Christian".

I think people need to recognize the following:

1) We have an existing process for becoming a legal US citizen. Trump was only enforcing existing immigration law. He didn’t create any.

2) Trump offered the Dreamers the best deal ever and that was declined because the Dems (and some Pubs) didn’t want comprehensive reform which included money for the wall.

3) There are tons of immigrants who abuse the asylum process and are here only for a job, not persecution.

4) These same people use children as a Trojan horse to get them all into the country. These kids are separated in a lot of cases for their own protection and legally required supervision while their criminal parents are being processed.

5) All of the above could be avoided if people just stuck to #1. People need to put the blame where it belongs...on the people breaking the law. Also, this problem won’t be resolved until both parties get past their own selfish reasons for not addressing it. Until that time, it was proven that Trump’s enforcement of existing immigration law was reducing illegal border crossings as intended.

1. You can't become a legal U.S. citizen overnight. We're talking immediate moments at the border. Trump wasn't enforcing an existing policy. He took a bad policy and amped it up even more as a punitive deterrent. He thought the cruelty would scare parents from coming to America, which isn't ever really how that works.

2. He wanted to deport them.

3. There are. There are plenty who didn't, and it isn't worth putting kids in cages to catch the bad adults.

4. Some do. Many don't. That's all that matters. They USED to be separated for their protection. Trump ended that.

5. Those little children didn't break #1. Why should they be punished?

And before you flip out in a response, you'll notice I didn't insult you anywhere.

I’d be in favor of immediately turning them all around and kicking them out. However, since a minority portion of them have a legitimate asylum reason, we’re required to sort through all of them. When you have tens of thousands illegally cross the border at one time, sometimes logistics aren’t pretty. Unfortunately we can’t provide a Holiday Inn Express for them all to stay in. I will also guarantee that any accommodations we provided here are better than what they left.
