Then they shouldn't have allowed them into their nation to begin with. Mexico let them in because they knew they only wanted passage to America. If these people had come with the intention of living illegally in Mexico, they'd have been arrested and deported. Ie: Mexico is facilitating these people and their intentions to illegally enter the US.
Trump fucked up when he caved on last budget, now theres a two week extension, he will cave again, no 5b for wall, no obama crime family prosecutions, he will not get a second term. Failed on two biggest campaign promises
Illegal entry is a federal misdemeanor, and those who plead guilty under Streamline are generally sentenced to time served and then handed back to immigration officials for deportation or asylum processing, depending on the individual case.
So she intentionally employed deception to get a job, then tries to say, "they should have known I was lying!", really? All she accomplished was outing herself. I hope she likes goin' back to Guatemala. Hey, maybe she can join the next caravan. lol
Seems like she's saying we should suspect any non-English speaking people who look like immigrants, as being illegal. Is that what she is saying here? If so, even the illegals agree that we need an "English only" law to weed them out.
No money for border wall in exchange for ‘Dreamer’ legal protections, Pelosi says
The Democratic leader takes a hard line as spending bills to fund the government after Dec. 21 advance amid the president's threat of a shutdown over money to build the wall.

WASHINGTON — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday rejected the idea of paying for President Trump’s border wall in exchange for helping hundreds of thousands of young immigrants avoid deportation.
Funding for the wall – a top Trump priority – and legal protections for so-called Dreamers, a key Democratic goal, should not be linked, Pelosi said.

“They’re two different subjects,” she said.
Her comments came as the House and Senate approved a stopgap bill Thursday to keep the government funded through Dec. 21. The measure, approved by voice votes in near-empty chambers, now goes to the White House.
Trump has promised to sign the two-week extension to allow for ceremonies this week honoring former President George H.W. Bush, who died last Friday. But he wants the next funding package to include at least $5 billion for his proposed wall, something Democrats have rejected. Trump is set to meet Tuesday at the White House with Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.
Pelosi, who is seeking to become House speaker in January, said the lame-duck Congress should now pass a half-dozen government funding bills that key committees have already agreed on, along with a separate measure funding the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the border. Funding for the homeland agency should address border security and does not necessarily include a wall, Pelosi said.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California is likely to become the next Speaker of the House of Representatives when Democrats take control next year. At a press conference on Thursday she said that she did not support President Trump’s proposal to build a border wall with Mexico. She called the proposed border wall “immoral, ineffective, and expensive” and promised it will not be funded under her watch. Then she added: “Trump also promised Mexico would pay for it, so even if they did, it’s immoral still and they’re not going to pay for it.”
But Pelosi has to be careful because even as she takes a strong position, the president is threatening to shut down portions of the U.S. government if wall funding is not provided in the appropriations legislation passed by the House.
A shutdown would hurt the country and make both parties look bad in the eyes of the American people. To deal with Trump’s threats, Pelosi suggested that Congress “punt” on the idea at this time. She said that a debate over the president’s demand for the wall should be delayed until next fall in order to avert the government shutdown that Trump has threatened.
However, Pelosi made clear that she is still rejecting Trump’s $5 billion demand for border security. The Democratic leader told reporters she would refuse an offer from Trump and congressional Republicans to use the so-called ‘Dreamers’ as a bargaining chip. GOP leaders have said that they might be willing to permanently resolve the standoff over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in exchange for the requested money for a border wall.
“They’re two different subjects,” Pelosi said. She made clear that she wants to separate the debate over extending DACA from a fight in Congress over the border wall.
The House of Representatives and Senate passed a two-week stopgap funding measure Thursday afternoon, extending current government funding until December 21. This buys them more time to negotiate a long-term deal, although prospects for doing so are not very good.
The future Speaker said there should be some areas where agreement could be reached, and other areas where the funding decisions could be postponed through the use of continuing resolutions.
“We have before us all of the factors, all of the issues to make a decision. I think that what we can do that makes sense is to pass the six bills where the members of the appropriations committee have come to terms during ongoing negotiations,” Pelosi proposed. “Then have a continuing resolution only for Homeland Security as we go forward, and that’s pretty much where our position is now.”
Actually, a yearlong continuing resolution on funding for homeland security is a great idea, since that is the area where the two parties currently disagree very strongly. Also, she reminded everyone that the president could extend the DACA program on his own, and that would be the right thing for him to do. The young immigrants involved in DACA should not be held hostage by Trump in order to coerce Congress into funding his wall.
Rep. Pelosi then concluded her remarks to reporters with some optimistic comments, saying: “We can move forward with this. We have a responsibility, all of us, to secure our borders, north, south, and coming in by plane, on our coasts — three coasts, north, south and west. And that — that’s a responsibility we honor, but we do so by honoring our values, as well.”

Start a business? In Honduras? Wait a minute. Back the f' up. The whole reason they were said to be fleeing Honduras was because it was said to be too violent to live there. If it's too violent to live there, it'd be too violent to take tens of thousands of dollars back with them and open a business.
This "demand" of theirs just proves what lying POS's they really are. All they want is what you the reader has, but without having to work for it like you had to.
They're so stupid. What he means by that is the economic benefit of a better trade deal will help the economy more than the tax cost of building a wall hurts the economy. Not that the savings that companies realize due to that better trade deal will be confiscated in order to pay for the wall. The gov still needs to budget for it.
And now schumer says not one cent for the wall, no 1.6 billion , they are fking trump in the ass daily and rinos are doing it too, he is toast
Schumer says he will stick with his two offers to avoid a shutdown; a stopgap bill across the board, or a stopgap to fund the Department of Homeland Security with appropriate packages for the rest of the agencies subject to closure.
Earlier Tuesday White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that the Senate has "thrown out a number of ideas," and that when something passes, the White House will evaluate it. On the topic of funding the wall, Sanders told Fox News "We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion," adding "At the end of the day we don’t want to shut down the government, we want to shut down the border." She then said that the White House was looking into other funding sources and believed that it could be accomplished legally.
"There are certainly a number of different funding sources that we’ve identified that we can use, that we can couple with money that would be given through congressional appropriations that would help us get to that $5 billion that the president needs in order to protect our border," said Sanders.
((Schumer disagreed - saying "They need congressional approval - they're not getting it for the wall, plain and simple." ))
