If they are here illegally they need to go.

Queentalk Let's straighten it out!!!

J. Daubert It’s sad how we say we own parts of earth but when we die it’s left to other people of all nations. When are we going to realize human race is the only importance you don’t own nothing not even your soul. Don’t let one clown influence the whole inhabited earth.

As sympathetic as this woman sounds, economic migrants do not have the right to tell the US that they must be allowed reside here. That right belongs only to US citizens, collectively, as conveyed through our laws. Furthermore, we can't decide to obey only the laws we like and ignore those we don't. If we only obey the laws we like, it will destroy the social compact that makes our democracy work.

Linda Susan Erickson yeah agreed. just curious what you think: so since she's been here for what was is, 15ish years, do you think that should play a role in how her case is handled or does time not matter in cases of undocumented immigrants? idk the answer. it's definitely a tough question. is there a time limit for how far back we should go? especially for people brought here as children?

immigration courts should be where the money goes not walls this way immigration cases can be heard out properly so we can help refugees live and thrive as it is their human right

this was a heartbreaking interview. also, what she did is illegal. I dont have answers. what's happening now is not the answer. open borders are not the answer. these poor people but the answers are very hard. it's just a total mess.

When you humanize it, it's so much more sad. 😢
