Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
A refugee who wants to come to the United States can apply and wait for approval. May take years. Meanwhile, you sit in the refugee camp overseas.
A person who sneaks into the United States can apply for asylum. Your approval also may take years. But meanwhile, you’re released into the United States and given a work permit and relocation benefits.
A person who sneaks into the United States and claims to be an unaccompanied minor seeking asylum, gets all of that plus extra cash and benefits.
A person who sneaks into the United States and claims to be an unaccompanied minor trans-gender seeking asylum, gets all of that plus extra cash and benefits and now might receive even better preferential treatment.
No documentation is required for any of this stuff. In fact, if you have it, it can be used against you. So nobody has any papers when they arrive, the entire system is based on verbal claims.
Now I ax ya . . . if you wanted to get into the United States plus maximize your benefits, what story would you tell?
The story that was given to you by those who want your vote in exchange, that’s who.
