Ted Cruz Offers Solution to End Family Separation

As Democrats and the mainstream media continue to whip up the firestorm over President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance enforcement of immigration law, specifically family separation at the border, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Monday proposed legislation to quickly mitigate the immediate problem.

Cruz’s bill would end the practice of separating families by authorizing new temporary shelters to house families together until their asylum requests are processed. He also proposes that the number of federal immigration judges be doubled to a total of 750 and that an expedited review and processing of asylum cases within 14 days be implemented. Those families who do not meet the asylum requirements would be immediately returned to their home countries.

Cruz’s proposal does offer at least a temporary solution to a problem that has been years in the making. It would essentially end the bad optics of separated families, while not returning to the flawed policy of Barack Obama’s “catch and release.

I say all illegal immigrant seeking asylum be housed with members of Congress until their cases can be decided. Maybe even require liberal actors to open their homes also.

It seems to me these people could have asked for asylum in any one of several countries they passed through. Or is the US the only country which honors asylum? If so maybe we should be like our southern neighbors and end asylum, if that is what they have, no asylum.
