Q: Asylum... why cant people see the simple solution?

The caravan is on its way, long way, and the army has been called out.

I dont get it. Why does asylum need to involve ultimate citizenship? For example, when the caravan gets to the US, issue work permits for them to work. Thats all they want

Syrian refugees, teach them to rebuild. Give 5 year work permits and free classes.

Saidi Arabian women.. anywhere .. instant asylum.

But why the need to grant citizenship? To me, that is just deflecting the problem of failed states. Do you get my gist?

"Temporary" refuge status in the US should be simple -- but it isn't. It isn't because activists always fight attempts to end temporary protected status, and generally. Courts like the 9th Circuit can always find a reason to continue programs that should, logically and legally, end -- often citing a desire to "keep families together" (as the children born to even temporary refugees are US citizends under the current interpretation of the Constitution), or by questioning the motives behind ending the temporary program, or simply because they believe that anyone currently in the US should be allowed to stay there.  No temporary program in the US is ever temporary.  It's also relevant to not that MExico offered the current Caravan member temporary work visas, and they declined the offer.

'I grew up in the '30s with an unemployed father. He didn't riot. He got on his bike and looked for work, and he kept looking till he found it.'

Norman Tebbit, Reagan era Thatcherite.

Should borders be a barrier to people seeking work?

The simple solution of central Americans who don't speak English is not to walk 1000s of miles to the USA. The simple solution would be to go to the next nearest country that is not a shithole and speaks the same language. Why can't they seek asylum in Mexico?

I wonder if those countries could join up with the States?  Something like all those other territories...

 

Territories have always been a part of the U.S.[11] According to federal law, the term "United States", when used in a geographical sense, means "the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the United States Virgin Islands".[12] Since political union with the Northern Mariana Islands in 1986, they too are treated as a part of the U.S.[12] An executive order adopted in 2007 includes American Samoa in the U.S. "geographical extent" as reflected in U.S. Department of State documents.[13]

 

The U.S. has five territories that are permanently inhabited: Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Sea; Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands in the Marianas archipelago in the western North Pacific Ocean; and American Samoa in the South Pacific Ocean.

Approximately 4 million people in these territories are U.S. citizens. U.S. citizenship at birth is granted in four of the five major territories. American Samoa has about 32,000 non-citizen U.S. nationals. Under U.S. law, among the territories, "only persons born in American Samoa and Swains Island are non-citizen U.S. nationals." American Samoans are under the protection of the U.S., with the ability to travel to the U.S. without a visa. However, to become U.S. citizens, American Samoans must naturalize as if they were foreigners. American Samoans don't have natural-born U.S. citizenship because the US Congress has not passed any legislation giving citizenship to residents of American Samoa (unlike the other 4 inhabited territories).

Each of these territories is an organized, self-governing territory with three branches of government, a locally elected governor, and a territorial legislature.

Refugees are fleeing political persecution, or social upheaval, instability and other dangers. The premise is, it's not safe in their home country. The treaty of Rome stipulates that such people can apply for ASYLUM, shelter from danger. It is offered on humanitarian grounds.

Economic migrants are seeking wealth. Relative poverty is not a danger requiring a humanitarian intervention. When seeking to enter society as a foreigner, criteria must be met to allow that person to participate. If not, then there is a danger of economic prosperity causing long-term cultural damage from targeted immigration.

I'm of the opinion that the post-war treaty of Rome is in need of an overhaul. Asylum is an exceptional circumstance that was never intended to be so widespread, and the application and appeal system is being abused. Add to that the emerging conflicts, scarcity and global warming, and it becomes obvious that asylum can't be maintained in its current form.

I would agree with you but you're not calculatings costs, safety and reality.

 

When it comes to providing jobs, you're pushing citizens out of work. And who's going to pay to house,feed and educate them? America is not a rich country. Just because there are a lot of rich people in a country doesn't make it rich.

 

Aside from the fact that Islamic terrorist do use the southern border as a means of entry into the US (and hide amongst refugees:France) there are safety concerns due to different cultures. Gangs are a way of life for those people as evidence by the fact that many join ethnic gangs upon arriving in the US. Also their culture embraces sexism while we're trying to do away with sexism. 

 

And here's a bit more reality. Do you really think they're going to leave? Or will they take advantage of birthright citizenship to gain citizenship for themselves. Getting in is the tough part, getting them out is near impossible. Look at history

Re the caravan. Jeff Sessions got a superb heckling at an event to promote religious freedom. A priest stood up and shouted (paraphrasing), ' Repent jeff. repent your sins in the name of Jesus'. He quoted some Jesus stuff about travellers and strangers. You know the passages.

He was escorted out.

Another priest started... this is a meeting about religious freedom.. and you kicked a preist out who spoke the truth.

He got kicked out too.

All the while, the trumpsters were crying out.. shame on you.. go home. get out.

Given that God has a wiked sense of humour, what with him inventing parasites, cancer and peodophiles, it struck me. What if God put a new Jesus in the caravan? Yup, I know Jesus is a common name in Latin America. But what if one of them in the caravan is the real next Jesus.

The have been saying there are middle easterners hiding in the caravan after all.

The evangelists pray for the second coming, but they rather limit the allowable demographics for his/her entry into humanity. God must be getting rather fustrated that everytime he sends a new messiah they get bombed back home by a drone.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
