The border crisis is completely out of control. Limitations set by Congress in the last budget have prevented CBP from being able to house the mass migrant groups crossing the border illegally every day. Most who claim asylum are released to the interior and may or may not appear for their hearings that are scheduled months or years in advance. In the meantime, they’re free to move about the country.
This is completely unacceptable. If the United States is to be a sovereign nation, we must be allowed to control who enters and stays in the nation. The problem has grown to the point that we can no longer even feign control, and those who want to breach our borders know this.
On the other side of the equation, we cannot simply deport them. This goes against our asylum laws; those who rightfully seek asylum cannot be harmed for the sake of those who do so without just cause. Therefore, deportation prior to their hearing is impossible.
The only viable solution is for the United States to make a deal with Mexico to establish humane temporary housing for them on the Mexican side of the border. This would be must less expensive than the current costs paid to house and track the thousands of migrants who cross over daily, not to mention the costs associated with dealing with them while they’re roaming the country freely. It would be the safest conditions possible for migrants, many of whom are released to the streets of the various cities taking migrants across the country. Even our generous charitable organizations have been unable to keep up.
We demand negotiations begin immediately between the United States and Mexican governments to house migrants on the Mexican side of the border until their asylum hearing date. This benefits migrants and Americans alike.
