The Central Americans surging into the U.S. and claiming asylum look a lot more like regular illegal immigrants, eager for better jobs or to reunite with families, than traditional refugees fleeing persecution or violence back home, according to a new report Wednesday that challenges conventional wisdom on the migrants motives.
And while they are often referred to as asylum-seekers, few of the migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador - the chief sending countries - are likely to end up winning asylum in the U.S., according to the study by academics at the National Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE) at the University of Southern California, and the Institute for Defense Analyses.
Adults are most likely to come for better jobs, the researchers said. They can improve their incomes by 1,200 percent in moving from Central America to the U.S. Children, meanwhile, are coming for economic opportunities but also to reunite with family already in the U.S., they concluded.
The standard wisdom [that] its all about violence could not be supported by our data, said Detlof von Winterfeldt, a researcher at CREATE.

We are well into the 21st century, so why are those places still crapholes?
(Hint: It’s not OUR fault.)
To be a refugee you have to be a member of an identified group, religion, race, etc. that is being singled out and violently attacked.
None of these people qualify, there is no such thing going on in Honduras. There’s just poverty and the crime that always lives with poverty.
As Fox News pointed it out, they are mostly young males.
“few of the migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador - the chief sending countries - are likely to end up winning asylum in the U.S.”
The problem is that simply asking for asylum means they can’t be deported at the border quickly.
Under both US law and international law, anyone who seeks asylum at a port of entry into the United States must be received, allowed to request asylum, and referred to an asylum officer for the of review their claim.
Turning these people away from the border would mean that US authorities were breaking the law.
No border wall will be effective as long as the invaders can ask any USCIS person at any port of entry for asylum and Article 23 welfare benefits and lightning fast Article 34 naturalization to start the chain migration process for their relatives.
The Republican Congress needs to denounce [get out from under] the Refugee Convention.
Article 44 denunciation
1. Any Contracting State may denounce this Convention at any time by a notification addressed to the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
2. Such denunciation shall take effect for the Contracting State concerned one year from the date upon which it is received by the Secretary-General of the United Nations....
They have been seriously manipulated. Many of them, as Trump said, if they stood in line and went through the normal entry points, would have been accepted.
The radical left and Soros have stirred these people up and actually made them all collectively shoot themselves in the foot. But that doesn’t matter to Soros and the left, because the “people” are just cannon fodder for them. Send these poor dumb idiots out there with their kids - hey, Soros doesn’t care.
It appears the participants are creating more violence that they supposedly left.
LOL - flat out wonderful!
It’s time to change the laws before THIS happens:
