I was not referring to that law.<quoted text>
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.
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.
