Let’s Stop Managing This Invasion And Start Blocking It

We shouldn’t be hiring judges by the thousands, as our ridiculous immigration laws demand, we should be changing our laws, building the Wall, hire Border Agents and Ice and not let people come into our country based on the legal phrase they are told to say as their password.

The president is absolutely right. Let’s stop managing this invasion and start blocking it. End illegal immigration once and for all.
There’s only one way to solve the immigration crisis in a way that is humane to Americans, first and foremost, but that also ceases to empower drug cartels and human smuggling, benefits legitimate asylees, and deters fake ones from making the trip. We need to end all asylum applications within our borders and route the process solely through facilities in Mexico.
There is one data point that should immediately end the suicidal process of letting tens of thousands of dangerous people be released into our country: Roughly 80 percent of asylum applicants from Central America have been rejected outright in recent years by immigration judges, who are typically more liberal in their views. The number of applicants who truly fit the statutory description of an asylee is likely infinitesimal, and a very small percentage are ultimately approved.
This means that by entertaining enormous number of asylum applications within our borders, where many applicants who ultimately will not be accepted are nevertheless released into the population, we are putting Americans at risk with social problems, fiscal drains, strains on the schools, drugs, and gangs, all for a small number of legitimate asylees. Even under Trump, those who enter at the points of entry are released into our country pending the outcome of the cases. But if we know that almost all of them will not be accepted and many of them abscond, particularly the ones from Central America, we are essentially putting America last and endangering them all for a lie.
