You do realize that the Trump Administration is simply following the law that was enacted by the Obama Administration, right?
Despite the efforts of the Republican Congress to find a bipartisan solution to the problem, the Democrats (in particular, Pelosi and Schumer) refuse to reach across the aisle to fix the problem.
It is not the responsibility of the United States to allow those people into the USA who are fleeing the problems of their countries, simply because their government refuses to confront the drug cartels.
Asylum from what? An abusive husband? The local drug gang?
Genuine asylum requests are limited to politically or religiously disenfranchised groups of people.
The Obama admin bastardized the rules to incorporate pretty much anybody from a third world banana republic who is having a bad day. You know, more democrat voters to put on the plantation and all that.

I don't think most Democrat politicians give a hoot about Mexicans; they know that if they don't appeal to minorities that they will lose elections over and over.
But what they might want to consider for the future is that Blacks and more and more Hispanic Americans are getting pretty tired of the porous border that illustrates the benefits of being American are not reserved for Americans but for anyone who wants to force themselves on us.
When I see young DACA recipients hold signs that say, " We're here to stay!" they are exhibiting the very arrogance and entitlement that indicates to me we have been too lenient and so, so stupid in our immigration policy.
America is for Americans; black Americans, Hispanic Americans, Chinese Americans, German Americans...well you get it...we need to concentrate on uniting our peoples not Mexico's peoples.
And yes, separate them from their kids; no extra monies for other facilities spent on them. We already spend too much on dealing with them every time they want to come over. It isn't fair. They increase our costs anytime they want to come over. We have to "host" them as if we invited them and we didn't.
There is a right to due process, and domestic criminals don?t have their children detained. Because they have a HOME here. We don't have to make arrangements for them other than don't go grab them, too...smh...
Well you sound like a thoughtful well rounded person. Keep throwing a yelling tantrum on KU. Eye roll.?
Ummm....I'm not yelling. I'm very calm, actually. Oh, I have that statistic you wanted. It's about 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States. But you don't have to take my word for it. Just Google any source you want to use.
The phrase a "porous border" is not limited to only those that cross on foot or by land. You do know that if someone comes by plane and they do not legally belong here-- or with no large extension of logic--stay when they should go... they have illegally crossed our borders or are here illegally. If the borders did not extend into airspace then no nation could be sovereign within its own territory.
Now another dimension...well that might be up for grabs.
Seal the border...yes, if you need someone to specify that that includes airspace so be it but it needs to be done.
Send back all those who are here illegally and clean the mess up and never, never get this lax again because all it does is cause problems.
My grand plan is not grand at all. Increase funding for patrols and drones, get stricter about fining companies that hire illegals to recoup some of the cost and stop giving them access to scholarships, school meal programs, WIC, Head Start, and emergency Medicaid.
Those programs are not for them; they are for Americans.
And before you say it can't be done because we share a land border you need to read up on how other countries have done a much better job that we have.
Don't expect me to do all your work in learning where things stand or why.
Many Americans don't want them here; it can't be stated any simpler than that. And because we are Americans not Mexicans or El Salvadorans we can vote to try to get them out. Which is exactly what we have done.
Trump wasn't elected just because of his golden locks you know ;)
