It’s been reported elsewhere on FR that 65% of the kids have been approved for asylum status.
If the admit “65%” then you know it is actually higher, quite possibly much higher. They know Americans would be even more upset if they knew the figure was closer to 90%. [Just as we all shake our heads when they trot out the hackneyed figure of “12 million undocumented immigrants in America”.]
And they do admit that their 65% figure doesn’t take into account the illegals (adults?) who have been given court dates and have promised—on their honor as border jumpers—to appear.
I expect the quite small per centage are the homesick being returned because they have asked to go back home.
“Political asylum”: wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
This is amnesty by default, a de facto executive order, and as long as this policy remains in effect, we can expect the numbers to increase in an exponential manner.
3 million amnestied in ‘86, “12 million” today? How many in 20 years? How about in 3 months?
If we cannot control our own borders, we lose an essential attribute of national sovereignty. It isn’t that we cannot. We refuse. This is national suicide.
