    Let the second wave in - 20 million.
    Let the third wave in - 200 million?

    It is for us to decide who can and who cannot come in. We need to have this national discussion, and not have it forced upon us.

    •  I was agreeing with the need for a (5+ / 0-)

      discussion on the subject, because how it's being handled right now sounds wrong and in the dark.

      It's become obvious that we can't talk about rational limitations or possible acceptance/denial criteria in the current political environment.  This needs to be addressed in terms of current hardships placed upon families struggling to get processed or considered, while we determine what that consideration should entail.

      I really don't trust the current government to err on the side of efficient, speedy and fair immigration policy implementation - especially when there's a larger, economic mouth to feed in the prison system and scapegoating biases still run amok in various townships.
