Let Me Ask You a Question – 6/20/18


Let me ask you a question:

What is the cut off number for people seeking asylum in the U.S.?  **Please try to provide well thought out answers, not just political rhetoric or hate speak.**

  1. I have no clue. I hope there wouldn’t need to be a cut off number, but there are (and are likely to continue to be) a great many people out there in the world who would have a chance to qualify. One question would be of how many we could properly evaluate, process, and place in communities per year. That would be a place to start to figure it out. Then, there is the question of what the criteria should be, and as we have seen recently, that can be a matter of interpretation of the law, domestic and international.

  2. why not help Mexico instead of Isreal? Help out our geographical neighbors and maybe we can create a more unified continent instead of just Us and Them. Then perhaps the issue would finally settle. It’s entirely idealistic but it’s an idea all the same.

  3. here is what I don’t understand people want come to work or escape extreme harm but we are stopping that and paying millions to keep them in detention and hurting these children? Isn’t it better just to let them come in to work or get away from the horror they are going through?

    • It isn’t that simple and not all families are being separated. The families being separated are those in which the adult(s) have a criminal record or those that the agents do not believe the people are actually families. Many illegals are stealing kids and trying to enter with them. I listened to a Border Patrol agent speaking to the misinformation being put out to the public via the media. The kids they are separating, often time, are in danger with the people who are attempting to escort them.


    • And if we are going to ignore immigration laws then what other laws should we begin to ignore? It would be more chaos than it already is. Our country is now reaping years of politicians ignoring immigration problems. This has been building for 20 years.


  4. About 500 of the best from anywhere in the world. To define “best” the US government needs to make the rules.
    Basically what I am saying here is that there need to be rules and the rules need to be implemented.

      • Danny,
        Every country in the world has it and has strict rules about who enters and who stays. Then why can’t the US ? Even Australia and Canada I am sure has an extensive policy of vetting for all the welcoming “immigrants” policy they follow.

  5. Well, I am German and as you all know we had1 million people seeking asylum in 2015. We were not prepared, I don´t think you can prepare for this. Considering that our both countries are similarly eqipped with infrastructure and such, lets do the math: There are 82 Mio Germans and 325 US citizens (Wikipedia). This means the US could manage 325/82 = 3,96 times one mio refugees = about 4 million without everything breaking down. In Germany everybody pitched in and knowing my US friends, they would, too. What do you think?
