Default Migrant caravan: Let us in or give each of us $50,000 to turn around and go home

Good thing we don't allow asylum based on brass balls and chutzpah...

MIGRANT CARAVAN: LET US IN OR GIVE EACH OF US $50,000 TO TURN AROUND AND GO HOME

Quote:
Central American asylum seekers in Mexican border town Tijuana reportedly marched to the U.S. Consulate on Tuesday to present the Trump administration with an ultimatum: Let us into the country or give us $50,000 each to turn back home.

The demand came a month after asylum seekers began to arrive in Tijuana. Many still face weeks, if not months, of waiting in the border town before their asylum claims can be processed.

Asylum seekers showed up at the consulate in two groups, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune, with one of the groups—made up of roughly 100 people—delivering the $50,000 demand.

Asked how the asylum seekers came up with the figure, organizer Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa of Honduras told the newspaper that while "it may seem like a lot of money to you...it is a small sum compared to everything that the United States has stolen from Honduras."
Soooo...You claim a country has stolen from Honduras, so you travel hundreds of miles to GET OUT of Honduras and be LET IN to that country?!?!...

so if $50,000 would rectify their need for asylum then it’s likely they didn’t meet the standard for asylum in the first place.

Quote:
Asylum has two basic requirements. First, an asylum applicant must establish that he or she fears persecution in their home country.[4] Second, the applicant must prove that he or she would be persecuted on account of one of five protected grounds: race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or particular social group.[5]

So these people aren't actual asylum seekers as the open border scum like to claim they are.

What they don't mention is that to go away we will also have to give each and every family member 50k also. And that will be 50k per year for life. That will start the biggest baby boom in world history.

I have no doubt that some bleeding hearts from California are contemplating it.

No they aren't because it is counter intuitive as to why they support illegal immigration into this county, unless they could also then provide them with absentee ballots for every election.
