My opposition to Biden’s immigration policy has nothing to do with his pandering. I oppose them because they’re foolish, in violation of the law, and don’t help Americans or Central American nations.

Nor do we have an obligation to welcome illiterate, unskilled migrants.

But I’m sure you’ve thought this through and have a solution to integrate the population and not lower the wage for the communities you claim to champion. And do so without encouraging millions more to illegally enter with their hand out. You’re a better American than me, so I’m sure you’ll volunteer to serve in some capacity to help facilitate the safe indoctrination of millions.

I don’t care much to post here any more than I have, and maybe I missed your larger point about Central America, but you know Mexico is in North America, right?

The majority of illegal immigrants arrive from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras - the northern triangle; not Mexico. Central America isn’t a continent, and is commonly known to encompass all Spanish speaking nations north of Brazil, including Mexico.

Was there something you wanted to discuss that I said?  Allowing millions to flee the destitute and corrupt nations of Central America to hide in the shadows of the US isn’t a policy worth arguing over in my opinion. And that’s what Biden’s and America’s policy has been the past 30 years. DACA itself will be ruled unconstitutional, and you have to ask if Democrats are willing to get their popular position on immigration through all of their political capital?  Immigration is why Trump won in 2016, and welcoming millions of people who don’t qualify for asylum to set up shop and perpetually cross unhindered will give the GOP Congress in 2022.

Our borders should be enforced as should our asylum laws. And current immigration law doesn’t allow for poverty as a qualifying condition. Something like 98% of asylum cases fail, so why allow them to enter unrestrained?

I’m not advocating mass deportation, and support a final solution to immigration. But we said we were going to solve immigration under Johnson. Then we were under Reagan. Now here we are almost 35 years later, and we need to do it again.

The policy of the US can’t be to admit anyone who wants to enter. And if it’s going to be, our laws should reflect that. If laws are bad, they should be changed, not ignored.

Lumping Mexico with Central America is not something they teach in American geography. I’m not going to argue with you if you claim the majority of illegals are from Central American countries, but it seems you are lumping them together to prove a point.

I never did that. I never mentioned Mexico. I said Central America. You said Mexico. I don’t know why, and now you appear confused, arguing over something I never said.

JHFC. I said Central America, specifically not to state illegal immigration is from Mexico. You said Mexico, and I informed you Mexico is part of Central America.

Mexico absolutely is part of Central America, I don’t know where you went to school. It’s in the center of the two American continents.

If you’d like to discuss anything I said about policy, please do. But you’re understanding of terms isn’t accurate. At all.

You’re (appropriate use of the conjunction, btw) wrong. You thought Mexico was part of Central America. How many Google results did you have to go through before stumbling on a University of Central Florida page?
