Waiting times are not the problem here. The real problem at the border is not that we don’t have the correct process in place, but that Obama and his Democrat allies will ignore any process or legal framework at the first point of convenience. Arguing over legislative minutiae, as Republicans in DC are prone to do, not only fails to address very real concerns of Americans, it also opens the party up to rank demagoguery from the left.
A top Democrat in the House, Rep. Xavier Beccera, blasted the GOP proposal. “If it’s just change for the sake of returning kids, then what they’re essentially saying is, we’re trying to diminish the rights and protections we afford to children.”
I’m sorry, but these “children” are not Americans, are not here by invitation, are, in fact, illegal invaders, and as such, have very few, if any, “rights and protections” at all.
The answer to this problem is simple: Seal the border. Immediately deport those who’ve recently made it across back to their home countries. Rinse and repeat.
But neither the Democrats nor the Republicans are going to do that. Not until it’s too late, and doesn’t matter any more.
