Graham unveils bill to end asylum claims at US border

Sen. Graham introduced a legislation Wednesday that would, in part, change the asylum process in an attempt to stem the flow of migrants arriving at the southern border. The legislation proposes requiring migrants seeking asylum to apply at a consulate or embassy in their home country. It would also increase the amount of time that migrant children could stay in custody from 20 days to 100 days.

How about introducing a bill to send them back after 20 days? Not enough room in the Inn folks.

Do what Australia does: 1. Send them back before they cross the border. 2. Pay a foreign country to house any asylees that cross the border. 3. If they're lying, fine them for costs incurred, then send them back. 4. If they're true asylees, send them to a safe foreign country for settlement (via an asylee exchange) NO illegal aliens should get to stay in the US. Even if genuine, it just gives others a glimmer of hope. There should be a zero percent chance for illegals to actually get into the country they petition for asylum.

When it becomes indefinite, the right will still deny it's slave labour.
