    The decision to grant asylum is up to a US court. That is the current hold-up. The courts are overwhelmed, and the kids often have insufficient legal representation at those courts, which causes further delays.
    I agree, but you're talking about individual cases there. I was referring to declaring an entire nation's citizens are refugees, as this seems to imply.

    The fact of the matter is people WANT to come here, they don't want to go there.

    I asked for a relevant legal definition for the retired guy but he had none. I find looking up words in a dictionary better than pulling a definition out of my arse.

    Would you like me to quote the most relevant points in the article which you apparently will never read for you? Or will you just ignore that as well?
    I dont' have to refute anything that is a history if bias in it. why don't you actually address the thread instead i haven't seen you make one on topic post yet.

    It's difficult to debate a hypocritical poster. You reject facts that don't meet your "smell test" and then demand others accept your own when they apply the same standard. Something to think about.

    I haven't denied the CIA's role. In fact, I've stated their actions were poorly executed and questionable. Of course, the bigger picture brings into question the culture and society in Latin America that allows all the outside influences to prevail.

    Imagine the impact of importing millions of people who think and act as the citizens of Latin America do.

    as i said the only blame the US incurs is not enforcing our immigration laws. if we would have enforced our immigration laws then they would realize that coming here is useless.
    And immigration laws haven't been enforced for decades. So it's America's fault, but just for different reasons you say, ok.

    Yeah? how many people do you believe were shot over the 4th of July weekend in Chicago?

    Take a wild flippin' guess.

    I don't think that anybody has denied Chicago's violence problem, you should move! Funny you think it compares to Central America though.
