There's no justification for detaining them at all.
That is hardly the point.

If we no longer have any enforceable borders, then we are no longer a real country--but just a large land mass, between two great oceans.

Is that really all that you want us to be?

So, your point would appear to go something like this:

Those seeking a better life may simply ignore our laws, until that flouting of the law becomes "moot," as they are accepted as citizens of this country.

Do I have it about right?

Translation: No other administration has enforced the law--it has merely looked the other way...

Really?

Not even George Soros?

Oh, and here is an article (from about two-and-a-half months ago) from Investor's Business Daily--which is hardly a fringe publication: https://www.investors.com/politics/e...-open-borders/

This is the constant mantra of the left: "Immigration" (which it conveniently confuses with an illegal invasion) "benefits" our country.

As for "diversity," that is just a synonym for multiculturalism--which is antithetical to assimilation (upon which our country was actually built).

Mexico is certainly not an authoritarian country. Not in the slightest.

How can you say that?

When a city declares itself a "sanctuary city" (or when a state declares itself a "sanctuary state"), it is, indeed, declaring that its own law is to be counted above federal law.

It is very difficult--no, impossible--to see how it could be argued otherwise.

Do you support the division of power based upon federalism in the United States or do you support a central government that has all of the power?
I support the supremacy clause of the US Constitution.

Now let me ask you a question, also: Do you?
