Pro-migration U.S. lawyers have widely explained that the U.S. asylum laws allow economic migrants to file an asylum claim once they step on one square foot of U.S. soil, such as the U.S. half of the Rio Grande river.
Once the claim is filed, most migrants are released into the United States to take jobs.
Officials at the Department of Homeland Security have developed several legal strategies to block the migrants, including a new program that would deny migrants jobs by forcing them to stay in Mexico while their claims for asylum are heard.
Nationwide, the bipartisan establishment’s economic policy of using legal migration to boost economic growth shifts wealth from young people towards older people by flooding the market with cheap white-collar and blue-collar foreign labor.
The cheap labor policy widens wealth gaps, reduces high tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high tech careers, and sidelines at least five million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with fentanyl addictions.
Mexican police are helping US border officers limit the daily # of caravan asylum requests. This is important b/c it may prevent catch & release which happens when migrants overwhelm border. But Trump also must win court/asylum fight vs. progressives & biz https://t.co/EVsSxj4U34
