  • Senator Lindsey Graham has introduced a bill to extend the detention of migrant children from 20 to 100 days, as well as force migrants to apply for asylum in their home country instead of at the border. Graham contends his bill would help the country "regain control of our border," CBSN reports.

    Graham: *”Lordy, Lordy. -Honey, fetch my smelling salts, dear. I feel my vapors coming on again.”*

    [young man, in brightly colored neon short-shorts & cut-off t-shirt, sprints out of the room, then quickly returns with a small brown bottle in his soft, little hand]

    Graham: *”You silly pumpkin, that’s our poppers. The smelling salts are on the bureau, next to my cuff links & tittie clamps.”*

    It's a strange kind of Christianity that these Republicans embrace, a kind unique to America, unrecognisable elsewhere, as it has nothing to do with Jesus or God or tolerance or mercy.

    All these sheople writing without actual thought.
    Increasing the time a minor can be held will ensure proper indoctrination into our welfare system. Otherwise, these children are being left in the care of Who Knows?
    Might it be possible that some undocumented migrants are unafraid enough of the present system that they might Traffic in Children for Inhumane-Purposes?

      @Jack J For each kid that the trump administration puts into a detention facility, it costs the tax payer as much as $1400/day, and these are contracts given to private corporations, often in the private prison sector. John Kelly just took a job on the board of one such company that has profitted handsomely off trump's immigration policies. At the price they charge the tax payer, you could literally put them up at the Ritz in NYC with full butler service and probably still come out ahead.

      @DraconicEpic..How much are we spending protecting borders of other countries but can't find the money to secure ourselves..Without borders where does the Country begin and end ??

    • DraconicEpic
      DraconicEpic Month ago

      For the love of all things holy, the Wall isn't cost-efficient. Anything that can be beat by a ladder or tunnel isn't worth hundreds of billions of dollars to build and maintain. Even worse is all the legal issues with eminent domain. Let's get this straight: Republican Congressman don't want the Wall, many Republicans don't want the Wall, Democrats don't want the Wall, and most Independents don't want the Wall. The best you will get is border security funding including fences for highly trafficked areas. Any suggestion for a large metal/stone/concrete wall across most, if not all, of the border is dead on arrival. Why? Because Congress needs to cut costs so they can give more tax cuts to people and businesses who don't need them. Any funding the Wall could have had got was burned up by the GOP tax bill.

  • Dexterous Porcupine

    It would deter the deluge of illegal aliens that are overwhelming our border. 500k illegal aliens have been apprehended this year alone, that is a 12 year high according to the CBP. Last year we only apprehended 496,000 for the whole year, this year we already passed that and we aren’t even done with the year, at this pace 1 million illegal aliens will overrun the country. These illegals aliens are using there children as pawns to exploit our lenient laws. Graham’s bill will deter them from doing this. Graham’s Bill is a logical solution, but democrats won’t pass this because they hate America and love illegal aliens more than USA citizens.
