    IOW, you can't support your own argument.

    The fact is, this is the dunbest idea to come out of this regime, to date.

    No, in other words, I'm not going to do anyone's work for them.

    I'm retired, look that up in your dictionary.

    International laws dictate how refugees must be treated.

    Are you suggesting that the USA ignore those laws?

    You're not reading, this isn't the kids dumped at the door. This is pickup service paid for by the taxpayer. Can't believe I ever voted for this asshole.

    Re: U.S. Considering Refugee Status for Hondurans

    I had a feeling this would happen.


    The proposal, prepared by several federal agencies, says the pilot program under consideration would cost up to $47 million over two years, assuming 5,000 applied and about 1,750 people were accepted. If successful, it would be adopted in Guatemala and El Salvador as well.
    It is unclear how the administration determined those estimates, given that since Oct. 1 more than 16,500 unaccompanied children traveled to the United States from Honduras alone.
    Children would be interviewed by American immigration employees trained to deal with minors, and a resettlement center would be set up in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, with assistance from international organizations like the International Organization for Migration.

    The plan would be similar to a recent bill introduced by Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona, who proposed increasing the number of refugee visas to the three Central American countries by 5,000 each.
    According to the draft, the administration is considering opening the program to people under 21. It also suggested offering entry on emergency humanitarian grounds — known as humanitarian parole — to some of the applicants who did not qualify for refugee status.
    So it's really increasing the number of refugee visas from those countries, not as it's kind of implied that the ones here would get refugee status. While this isn't really helping the current situation, maybe it's a good step for moving forward.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    When did my country get this way? What happened to the statement we placed on the Statue of Liberty?

    Take a chill. You're reasonable and you made a mistake here. Recognize it and move on. Read the OP article. Read what they are proposing. We'd be going to a foreign country, inviting folks to ours and paying to have them delivered here. Like a full ride scholarship.
