    Why don't you go look up crime statistics in Chicago (or any major city)...

    Hell we have only had I believe nearly 700 homicides here in Chicago this year alone and this year is only half over...

    I don't dispute Chicago's crime problem, and forbid my daughter to go to Grad school there because of it (if you can control a 23 year old) but its not Central America at the moment.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    International laws dictate how refugees must be treated.

    Are you suggesting that the USA ignore those laws?

    Fill us in.
    They are not refugees you have to change the definition of refugee to even consider them refugees.

    Having in some part helped to create this problem, it would hardly seem the American way.

    Well, Honduras does have the highest murder rate in the world, if you count that as chaos.

    NONE of these illegals are refugees..... Refugee status is reserved for people who come from brutal authoritarian/totalitarian regimes - NOT for people looking to take advantage of progressives and all the goodies they offer for free to "brown people" in hopes that they vote democrat.
    Just wrong as usual. Refugee status is not limited to Government persecution.

    Refugees are generally people outside of their country who are unable or unwilling to return home because they fear serious harm.

    So wrong it hurts! Chicago's homicide rate (per 100,000 residents) is in the teens, while Honduras's present rate is almost triple digits.

    You mean you never noticed the asterisk on the statute?
