    Probably because they're nothing but drug dealers. Some I assume are good people.



    Let's send them back to their abusers.

    “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore,” she wrote. “Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Right...

    Immigrant advocates, however, say Sessions is taking away an essential lifeline for victims of domestic abuse and gang violence and turning his back on an American legacy of protecting the most vulnerable.

    Immigration lawyers have worked for decades to help domestic violence survivors from Central America, where the problem is pervasive. They argue these women deserve asylum because they're persecuted by their husbands and ignored by their own governments.

    From what I just heard on Tucker, the large majority of those claims to gain asylum turned out to be false claims

    That was abused like crazy and most women in those countries receive violence from men. The gang stuff was a joke also for requesting asylum.

    Ok, so your old man is beating the hell out of you, go back home and take what's coming to you. You're not welcome here. Is there any more despicable behaviour people will condone in the name of Left v Right?

    My mom founded an organization in the Twin Cities called Cornerstone. It started out as her and a couple of her buddies manning a help line for battered and abused women, and grew to providing shelters, and wound up becoming this:

    Cornerstone | Rebuilding Lives and Restoring Hope

    So, if caring about battered and abused makes me a bleeding heart, so be it. It's better that a bleeding head, or a corpse.

    What I understand is there are women in this country who are battered and need to be protected, and what I also understand is that the majority of those who applied for asylum under this obama mandate did so falsely

    Should that warrant a blanket ban, or should Sessions get off his butt and beef up the vetting process? If a few get it illegally, it still might save some innocent women's lives for crying out loud.

    You suggest we should grant asylum to any battered woman in this world? That is just crazy and a free ticket in basically.

    Some people have no idea how horrific domestic violence is. "Back in your place beyotch or I will whup you up!"

    And these victims have to put up with intolerant and ignorant attitudes from outsiders as well.

    Another trick used is for women to marry an American and falsely claim domestic violence to still get a citizenship later even though it didn't meet the 3 year marriage requirement but allowed her to leave him and run around the US.

    Gee, it's unfortunate the US is no longer trying use its immigration system as a surrogate for every dysfunctional criminal justice system worldwide. But at least they're being spared living within the malignant exploitative patriarchy that is the United States.
