Ihope you're not a lawyer ther4e Bucky boy. The law that you are talking about specifically states that children fleeing Central america are to be given a hearing to determine their status. Fleeing a country whose murdere rate is second only to Syria should certainly qualify one as a refugee. Fleeing a country where you are forced to join a drug cartel/gang or be killed would also qualify one as a refugee. Fleeing child sex rings, forced prostitution....
funny we have laws that if a Cuban sets foot on U.S. land they are granted admission to this country, and they aren't facing anything like these children from central America are facing
Let me guess, you're a christian.
I was not referring to that law.

The law you are referring to was enacted in 2008, if memory serves, and addresses sex trafficking.

The same law allows for immediate deportation proceedings by simply declaring that the migrants are not fleeing sex trafficking, which they are not.

"A refugee is an alien outside the United States who is
unable or unwilling to return to his or her country of
origin because of persecution or a well-founded fear of
persecution on account of race, religion, nationality,
membership in a particular social group, or political
opinion. This definition of refugee is set forth in
101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)"

It doesn't matter what you think a refugee is.

Bush is to blame for the use of torture, he had Gonzales write the memo justifying it. He ordered the invasion of Iraq, it was his administration that okayed the use of torture, kidnapping and imprisonmnet without trial, his administration came up with enemy combatant to circumvent the geneva convention

the law you are talking about wass also enacted to combat child soldiers...I contend that being forced to join a drug cartel/gand is a form of child soldiering

being forced to join a drug gang or being killed does fall under presecution, does it not?

You can't reason with a pig-ignorant paid creationist imposter.

You're a criminal who belongs in prison - that's why - you converted to shorten your sentence, and now you are brainwashed and arrogant thanks to your conditioning.

DUH, do you think before you write. First you state that the unemployment rate is lower in Central america, then you claim they are coming here because of better economic opportunity???WTF
BTW can you please provide a link to President Obama advvertising they could stay
December 2012 – Immediately following reelection President Barack Obama signs an Executive Order creating the “Deferred Action Program“, or DACA. Allowing millions of illegal aliens to avoid deportation.(link)

According to their own documents and research, this Deferred Action Program is what the Central American communities are using as the reason for attempted immigration. In both the border control study and the DHS intelligence report the DACA program is mentioned by the people apprehended at the border in 2013 and 2014.

"The 10-page July 7 report was issued by the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC), which according to the Justice Department website is led by the DEA and incorporates Homeland Security. Its focus is on the collection and distribution of tactical intelligence, information which can immediately be acted on by law enforcement."

"Of the 230 migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC (unaccompanied children) and adult females OTMs (other than Mexicans) traveling with minors,” the report said.

No an infinity as we know it is never completed, you cant count that high remember?
It doesn't mean it isn't there, but it does mean it cannot be measured, because that would take an infinite time to count. So all we can do is make the statement r = infinity.

Buckshit! Have you ever talked to any of them? I saw a interviewer report on why they were coming. In some of those countries they are from, there is no hope at all.
We have plenty of poor people who are American citizens to talk to, if you want to talk to somebody poor. Obama has increased their numbers.

If you have extra money weighting you down, give it to them.

No, I forgot,...you want to give away other peoples money, not yours.

How heroic.

I see. A completed infinity can never exist.

But one might exist. Even though it cannot exist.

If we cannot measure something, it might be a completed infinity, even though it cannot exist.

A married bachelor cannot exist. But one might exist, if we cannot see him, even though he cannot exist.

Got it. Thanks, man.

I never said I liked it, only that my compassion is greater than my greed here.
I know it will harm me,( a little) and that it's not good for me or my country.
But empathy decides that these people deserve our sacrificing a little to accommodate them into becoming Americans. This is America remember?
Not some greedy robber tribe of heartless cannibals. Sire we have to set some limits though.

A nation can have a lower unemployment rate, and the median wage be a fraction of what it is in the U.S., and with less opportunity to advance. That makes "better economic opportunity" in living here. But it does not mean they were starving.

You would be best-served not to argue with me.

I'm going to make a fool of you every time.

There was no torture.

You are making shit up.

Our military was authorized to blow their flesh and bones into bits and fragments.

But pouring a little water up their nose,....OOOOOHHH NOOOOOOOOO!!

There was no torture - not one instance.
