"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
like what, a whole 4,000 people? It's probably around 5% of what businesses just in Texas help import every year for cheap labor.
Wonder what it's going to cost taxpayers to mobilize a bunch of national guard troops and APCs and V-22 Ospreys and for-show rah rah USA! USA! bullshit to stop this VAST INVASION, 100 million bucks maybe? great value.
It's always wicked lame how Americans cream all over themselves every time the Feds roll out five hundred billion bucks worth of hardware to stuff some third world tin pot dictator like Saddam Hussein and shoot up some broke down 35 year old Soviet tanks, for entertainment on CNN while the majority sit home on they ass.
I guess they ran out of tin pots to kick around overseas now. Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama got to what was left of the low-hanging fruit first.
And up to 25% of these are children. They are not invading they are escaping home situations that they can't live with. The real bad guys fly or drive in, these peoples only crime is that they are poor and are hoping that the US will be a safe haven for their families as the US has
been so many times before. Anyone here with Irish or Scottish ancestors?
They were mostly refugees. Heck the Pilgrims were your original refugees!
These refugees are walking up to 1900km - hardly an invasion when you know they are coming - and they will be applying for refugee status. That is perfectly legal under both international and US law.
Seems to me they would be a good bet to hire as employees, that much gumption (walk 1100 miles) means a level of commitment, and loyalty to family that you rarely see these days.
I've hired both refugees and immigrants, and they are my best and the nicest people.

Yeah, it's kinda funny that Bush was able to duck a shoe from 20 feet and T rump gets so excited about illegals coming at the US from 1500 miles that h e wets his pants.
Sure, if they cross our borders arrest them, jail them, deport them, do wha tever we do with illegals. Even if all 4,000 manage to get into the US wou ld we even notice with the huge number making it in every day?
There's been talk of taking away the citizen by birth right unless your par ents are also US citizens. I'd be interested in seeing the ramifications i f that were enacted. If that were applied to those who had gained citizens hip in the past I think we would be left with only native American descenda nts. All the whiny Anglos would become immigrants.
