AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Hundreds of protesters gathered in Aurora on Friday evening to march to the ICE detention facility where illegal and undocumented immigrants are being housed. They also removed the U.S. flag, replaced it with a Mexican flag, and spray painted graffiti on a Blue Lives Matter flag before they replaced it flying upside down.

May you be set upon by swarms of the state bird of MI, the mosquito! :)

The vast majority of detainees are asylum seekers from Central America. It is not illegal to request asylum. It's allowed by both U.S. and international law.

It is also not illegal to cross the border at any point and seek out an ICE/CBP agent to do the same, under both U.S. and international law.

Trump has purposefully slowed down the ability to request asylum at ports of entry and the entire asylum process.

Naturally, you cast that curse as I'm about to head outside to mow the lawn.

The vast majority of detainees are asylum seekers from Central America.

Actually, the vast majority of them are economic-opportunity seekers who are using women and children as a means to claim asylum in order to gain entry.

Word has gotten out and this is an exploited loophole that congress needs to fix post-haste.

Later, all. I'm heading out to mow my lawn and be savaged by mosquitoes thanks to AU.

I know, TMI, AU. I came in the house to take a dump and saw your post. Hilarious. Thankfully I'm using headphones so I can't hear them but by the time I'm done I'll look like I have a severe case of chicken pox.

I do like that you were able to put into text EXACTLY what it sounds like. If I didn't know better I would assume you've experienced it firsthand and possess the ear of a musician to put it into text. Is it B-flat or does the pitch vary depending on proximity?

Even if true, you've yet to address the propriety of separating such parents from their children.
Why can't you simply say that's wrong?

Define "wrong". Is it wrong to commit a crime ....

When a man is arrested to DUI while having a child in the car and they are separated, is it wrong?

We already have "downtrodden" ... they are spread across Liberals cities in the name of homelessness.

All you are saying is you want more of it.

As Snoofy says, Poverty creates more poverty, in the case of illegal immigration it creates it at a greater rate as they send their cash home in form of remittances.

I don't doubt you care, you are just to stupid to understand your policies make the situation worse.

So...hate crime, right? Similar to stealing and burning someone's rainbow flag.

Hate crime definition is - any of various crimes (such as assault or defacement of property) when motivated by hostility to the victim as a member of a group (such as one based on color, creed, gender, or sexual orientation).
- Merriam Webster

Ah. Hate crime.

"Poverty creates more poverty, in the case of illegal immigration it creates it at a greater rate as they send their cash home in form of remittances. "

If they are making enough money to cover all their bills here and still send some of it back home, it's pretty hard to argue they're suffering from poverty.

Bull ----.
The courts have nothing to do with it.
Trump is the authority that forbid children being kept in detention with their parents.
The disconnect from reality the right-wing has on this issue is pretty alarming:

The Trump administration family separation policy is an aspect of US President Donald Trump's immigration policy. The policy was presented to the public as a "zero tolerance" approach intended to deter illegal immigration and to encourage tougher legislation.[1][2][3][4] It was adopted across the entire US–Mexico border from April 2018 until June 2018,[5][6][7] however later investigations found that the practice of family separations had begun a year previous to the public announcement.[8] Under the policy, federal authorities separated children from parents or guardians with whom they had entered the US illegally.[6][9][10] The adults were prosecuted and held in federal jails, and the children placed under the supervision of the US Department of Health and Human Services."

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detains families suspected of illegally crossing the border.[120] Prior to 2018, most suspected illegal border-crossers were dealt with through civil proceedings in immigration courts, where deportation proceedings and asylum hearings take place; most who were criminally prosecuted in federal court "either had been apprehended at least twice before, or had committed a serious crime".[121] Under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy, the Department of Justice began to criminally prosecute all suspected illegal border-crossers for illegal entry, even those who crossed for the first time.[122][121] Families undergo separations when parents or adult relatives were charged with unlawful entry.

--Witness number three is Kevin Drum, one of the few smart lefties worth reading in the pages of Mother Jones, who wonders "Are Democrats Now the Party of Open Borders?"

"Elizabeth Warren has an immigration plan... I have previously criticized Republicans who accused liberals of wanting "open borders." President Trump tweets about this endlessly. But I have to admit that it's hard to see much daylight between Warren's plan and de facto open borders. As near as I can tell, CBP will be retasked away from patrolling the border looking for illegal crossings; if border officers happen to apprehend someone, they'll be released almost immediately; if they bother to show up for their court date, they'll have a lawyer appointed for them; and employers will have no particular reason to fear giving them a job."

You've surely had things like speeding tickets in your life.
It didn't result in your children being separated from you and sent to government camps.

"Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan told the Senate Judiciary Committee during Tuesday's hearing that 90 percent of asylum-seekers who come into the country are not to be seen again.

"It depends on demographic, the court, but we see too many cases where people are not showing up," McAleenan said. "Out of those 7,000 cases, 90 received final orders of removal in absentia, 90 percent."

Coyote (person) - Wikipedia definition of Coyote would include family members bringing minor's into the country illegally.
