Have seen many an article from the cold areas of the country that have indicated that immigrants are choosing to head back home as it's not been the dream that they had come for.
Fed-up migrants who trekked thousands of miles to US already heading home: ‘American Dream doesn’t exist’

Some of this was due to Migrants coming to the US have overwhelmed cities, including Chicago, New York and El Paso

For those that come the ability to get legs under them is part of the ability to work, drive to get better jobs and more. With no registration system what they came with is not enough to get set up in a 60 day period. But for all that come not enough seem to be leaving as the help must not have run out for them.

Re: South of the Border Politics

For Mars_B4_Moon .... over the weekend, I caught a report on Chinese citizens (or more accurately ** one ** such citizen) bringing his young daughter with him on a very risky journey through Central America to the Mexican border, and on into the US.  This individual was persecuted in China because he is a Christian, and made the mistake of leaving a Bible out in view on the car seat, when he was stopped for a minor traffic violation.  The gent and his daughter survived and are living in the US.  He is sending a small amount of money home to his wife and other children.  He isn't making a lot of money, but he seems satisfied that he can criticize something without being persecuted.  On the other hand, apparently he isn't in the mood to criticize much of anything. It's just the thought of being ** able ** to that he likes.

Re: South of the Border Politics

One area of the identification is the Real ID to which this was proposed to better track who was able to vote.
Here's what you need to know about REAL ID heading into 2024
It still is not being used by all states.

anyone 18 years old and above will be required to present a REAL ID-compliant driver's license or identification card to fly domestically or visit a federal facility. Designated by a star and surrounding gold circle, REAL IDs are being issued in all 50 states.

But officials say not everyone needs a REAL ID. A valid U.S. passport is also a compliant REAL ID document, Illinois officials previously said, and can be used to fly domestically after the deadline.

Here's what to know about getting a REAL ID, and why you'll soon need some version of a REAL ID to board a domestic flight.

This also included a non-driver's version as well.

According to the Department of Homeland Security, the REAL ID Act, passed by Congress in 2005, "establishes minimum security standards for state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards and prohibits certain federal agencies from accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet these standards."

you would think enough time has passed to get on board.

Whom is the one that controls the US border seems to be a national security issue as the Texas governor is blocking border patrol from doing their job. As far as I can see a state is in control of state-to-state borders that do not overlap the territorial US borders.

The issue is undue racism to people of color subjected to constant scrutiny regarding their immigration status—and to the demeaning experience of criminal arrest and detention. Although there are no laws that require you to show identification — typically a driver's license — reality is a tougher cookie to chew. The courts have upheld ID requirements when safety and security are at issue, such as boarding a plane or entering a secure building. Most Americans carry a variety of identification cards. Some have a military ID, others a veteran's card, others an insurance card, some a university identification card and so on. Each has bits of information that is specific to the carrier. So as to be able to make use of rights to the individual.

Immigrants have no such ID when the only type that matter are those issued by the state, US agencies and companies that require them for use. So, they have not the rights to do these things and should not get benefits to the same just because they enter with empty hands claiming any form of asylum. The question then is what to do after the individual does the time for illegal entry?

penalty of entry
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1325
https://www.aclu.org/wp-content/uploads … ERSION.pdf

All told then this is a US law and not state border issue and crime.

Biden administration sends Texas cease-and-desist letter on border access

So what is wrong with the processing of illegals comes down to back log of those that were given due process. Fueled by unprecedented border crossings, a record 3 million cases clog US immigration courts

So, what documents giving them permission is the only form of ID these people have and those are not for that purpose.

Re: South of the Border Politics

Republicans Just Proved They Don't Want a Border Solution

Last week, Oklahoma Republican Senator James Lankford was tasked by Mitch McConnell to negotiate a bipartisan compromise to fix the issues at the southern border and the asylum system overall. Lankford negotiated a sweeping package of reforms and additional funding with Chuck Schumer, only to see it summarily rejected by Speaker Johnson and House Republicans before they even had the details.

The problem for House Republicans and their Orange Master is that their voting base has been fed a steady diet of propaganda that has them in full panic mode over the brown people. Trump has told them as many as 12 million migrants have entered the country in the last 3 years, and they are all terrorists, rapists, murderers and drug traffickers who have come from prisons and mental institutions around the world.

So, the base wants something done now to stop what they have been told is happening. That is why Republican leaders are spending so much time trying to convince their own voters that there is nothing in the new compromise that will stem the flow of migrants or increase deportations.

Re: South of the Border Politics

Words and meaning seem have become lost in the current USA border which is not a state-to-state border and not another that contacts a nation which is a federal border.

As it should be Obama-Appointed Judge Throws Out Illegal Aliens’ Lawsuit Against Texas where "their claims, not only would illegal aliens have free rein to enter and remain in Texas and the U.S., but free rein to commit crimes without consequence"

Which is why criminal are not allowed to stay in my reading that the illegal aliens’ detention under the operation of capture and charged for entry did not breach the constitutional rights of the person.

NY, Vermont, New Hampshire see record border crossings from Canada 295-mile stretch country's border with Canada - compared to its less than 2,000 milelong frontier; with Mexico - is more than 5,000 miles long.

It also has just 115 ports of entry - compared with the Southern Border's 330 - meaning massive swathes are understaffed, and are perfect places for opportunists to pass through.

Built the fence and increase staff to get same miles to entry port ratio. Increase state border staffing which is none to capture escapes.
