    Default How Does A Wall Prevent People From Seeking Asylum? Is A Gated Wall Really Indicated?

    Ya know?

    I don't get it.

    They walk right up to the gates.

    We have caravans of people coming here to seek asylum. They walk up to the gates and declare they are requesting asylum. We can't process them fast enough; so they are released into the USA. Although we might separate parents and children and not tell them where to find one another. But still they come. They are not trying to cross illegally. They walk right up to the crossings.

    How is a wall supposed to stop this?

    Doesn't it have gates? Isn't THAT where asylum seekers are getting in?

    Seems like the wrong approach.

If you want my take on it, you'll have to post to this original PoliTalker thread. I refuse to be an enabler for online bullies, so I won't post to a stolen thread. I won't even read it. If you don't see me, PoliTalker, posting in this thread check the author. This might be a hijacked thread, not the original.

    Maybe we need to increase our ability to process asylum seekers.


    Ya think?

    Well, One ... if you have 'Gates', there must be some kind of Fence or Wall.
    Two. I think it's a 'Sales gimmick' for the Trump base.

    Think about it, who does 'Cheap Labor' benefit?

    The OP is right if the answer is "it does not."

    How come during the last two years, when Repubs controlled the House, why wasn't this a Big Issue?

    can't build a wall a couple thousand miles long to begin with, it would take a decade and cost hundreds of billions and entail eminent domain court cases for years and years

    it's just a big Trump fantasy campaign promise, pure kabuki

    They tried it and it didn't pass.

    And it would look pretty silly to shut down the government over a disagreement with his own party.

    Trump had to wait until the Dems controlled the house.

    Makes for better theatrics.

    Great for diverting attention away from collusion.

    Also good rallying call to the base for 2020.

    To "increase our ability to process" would mean they get sent back faster, so the democrats would never go for that. The simple answer is change the law and stop accepting their applications if you want to stop them. Require that they file their application in person in Turkey. There are plenty of ways to handle that.

    Such a requirement is just as absurd as it sounds.

    The USA does not produce enough American babies to maintain our population level.

    Without immigrants, the USA would eventually die out.

    Republicans are fighting a losing battle in going up against immigration.

    To think that we must continue to expand our population is absurd, especially coming from the side that pretends to want to reduce our carbon output.

    understand that more illegals are leaving than are coming in and stop the trump induced rabid hysteria.

    Understand that a wall will not deter people desperate to escape poverty and drug cartels

    Great post. Thanks.

    All that makes too much sense. Where's the photo-ops in that? No theatrics. Just smart leadership. His followers would never understand. They seem to be more of a visual / emotional crowd. Deep thinking eludes them. Deep state conspiracy theories. That is more on their level.
