    I saw the caravan headed our way. It's mind boggling but I guess if you live under lawlessness long enough laws mean nothing to you.

    However, I fear that telling a government which places no value on the well being of its citizens that money will cease to flow if they allow citizens to flee will not end well.

    Free democracies will eventually have to come to grips with the fact that when decent people have to walk 2,600 miles to feel safe and believe they have a chance to work and prosper then the government they are fleeing has failed its people and have lost the right to govern. Trump should sever aid to those governments. The fact that these people have to cross 2 other countries to get here is an indictment against those countries also.

    When each individual central --south American country receives 60 to  175 Million dollars a year in "foreign aid "from the US for the advancement of their societies , economies and government graft and corruptions ,say nothing about aiding their  health care and national defenses .   And all  the US gets are their undesirable newborns ,criminals , poverty and health care risks  in human trafficking waves ?

    1- We could have a lot more for "free "in America if we stopped that foreign aid .

    2- That "free" money alone should be very attractive to our own leftists .
    That alone shocks me !

    That's a despicable stand. Undesirable newborns???? Criminals?

    We can see young children in the video, so we would simply disagree on the assumption that they are undesirable. As to you have anything to back the claim or do you just believe anyone looking for a life outside of their own nation a criminal? Because, making your way to our border on foot isn't a criminal act.

      Actually it is a crime , hence "illegal immigration ",   Illegal immigration  on our southern borders  IS their only form of  birth control , IS hispanic countries form of crime control , overpopulation ,  their whole idea of spending our foreign aid dollars is to export their problems in their GDP of overpopulation to us while at the same time using our aid in enriching their own individual politicians ?

      Worry not however Trump will end it .

        Waking 2600 miles is not a crime. If they attempt to enter the country illegally, that would be.

            I guess my point is you can stop calling them criminals.

            Edit. If you could stop calling newborns undesirables that would be nice too.

              Is one who plans on robbing a bank not a criminal ? You're losing your argument if you deny they intend on crossing . Besides , how many borders are they illegally crossing in the process of their journey ,take a look at a map of the Americas lately?

                You and I do not know the laws of other countries. I couldn't say if the caravan is doing anything illegally in those countries.

                Also, we have legal stations for entry into the U.S.  Now, people who are not U.S. citizens are not afforded all of the benefits of citizenship but innocent until proven guilty seems a fair benefit we should extend to all. Whether citizen or not.

                  If Illegal Immigrants crossing Mexico are not Mexican  , they have compromised laws more extreme than American immigration laws one and two  if you chose naivete in recognizing international law that's your issue not mine or anyone else's ,  they are criminal to our laws when they cross here  and despite Obama's ignoring the enforcing of  immigration laws at least  something is being done about it now .

                    Addressing the problem from a position of hate is not the way to resolve the problem. Your selfish lack of regard for human misery is astounding.  What's more astounding is that you aren't even aware enough to understand it is an embarrassing position you attempt to defend.

    Besides of 1,000,000 LEGAL Immigrants arriving here yearly ,  at what point aren't we exploiting the legal immigrant for the illegal immigrant , the costs alone would do better justice to settle legal immigrants rather than policing , housing ,feeding ,  ........

    It doesn't have to be an EITHER or an OR situation ,  organized , legal immigration is all there should be at this point in our history , Americans live daily in a contractual existence , we live ,work and breath by the laws of our land . It's long past time everyone did .
