If they take my son from me, I would die, one woman, who was seeking asylum when she was turned away from the border, told BuzzFeed News.
REYNOSA, Mexico Families waiting inside Mexico to cross into the US are increasingly nervous as reports of the child separations enforced under the Trump administration's "zero tolerance policy" sow fear and anger on the other side of the border.
Most of the families affected by Trumps policy are, like them, from Central America, where gangs frequently extort small businesses, forcibly recruit pre-teen kids, and burn houses down as a form of punishment for those who dont comply with their orders. US Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier this month issued a ruling making it harder for people fleeing domestic violence and gang violence to claim asylum.
Already traumatized from the violence at home and the dangers along the way up through Mexico, children are suffering from separation anxiety as theyre held in US government-run warehouses and tents near the border.
At a migrant shelter in Reynosa, one of the countrys most dangerous cities, BuzzFeed News spoke with four families who are weighing whether to make another attempt at the border or come up with a Plan B unfathomable for those who fled their countries afraid for their lives.
As Claudia walked past Mexican immigration agents at the bridge connecting Reynosa and Hidalgo, Texas, ready to show their US counterparts proof of her brothers murder and the risk it presented to the rest of the family, they advised her to turn around because your kids will be taken from you.
Patricia tried to cross the bridge with her 7-year-old son to ask for asylum two weeks ago but US authorities turned them around. They never gave her a reason.

Then stay in your own country.
Moreover, these invaders have been coached on how to lie, claiming they need "asylum" from "gang and domestic violence." When Sessions closed that loophole, the invaders and their enablers were furious.
We know why they are invading: freebies, paid for on the backs of hard working Americans.

Democrats want voters. The Globalist cabal wants to see the fall of the West through the destruction of borders via Third World hordes. Trump has done more for children than any of these abusers (including a massive, worldwide crackdown on sex and child trafficking).
The reason Trump ordered DHS to separate "families" (many of them are not even real families) was to discourage the invaders from invading.
It looks like it is working. Which is why the Democrats, UN, EU, and media are so angry.
So the policy is working. Check.
Great - Objective being accomplished. Keep it up and MAGA.
This is winning! They need to go back to their country of origin and make their economy strong.
The globalist elites and their Democrati lackeys want to divide/diversify and conquer the U.S. They want control of the U.S. military and its international presence.

I am from Nigeria, and I have lived through more than a few sob stories. You probably hate Trump and did not vote him. The honest thing to do may be to admit nothing the man does will ever make you happy or change your opinion of him. If you really believe there is nothing wrong with illegal immigration, then insist on visa-free travel to the US for all 7 bilion of us.
80% of the asylum applicants are pleading reasons which do not qualify for asylum. But they have clogged up the court system so heavily that it can take two years for their case to ever come up and if turned loose they seldom if ever appear. Hence, jail them as the criminals they are and as like all parents in jail, their children are removed. That's the same process and standard as US citizens but the libtards think illegal aliens have more rights than US citizens.
Trump was right, again. It's working. I want "fear to spread" through the Illegal Invader "community." This is war. In war, you put fear into your enemy.
So stop breaking the law!
Here she was in college. Oh, they hate her all right.
We have at least 12 million illegals in the United States. These people had the resources, initiative, and energy to make it here, so they had what it would have taken to help their own countries. If we believe the democrats that these are good, productive, hard-working, and law-abiding (other than laws democrats are okay with breaking) “Americans”, then it’s immoral for us to accept them because of the damage that appropriating the next generation of their culture does to their part of the Americas.
The globalist left whines about “cultural appropriation” over wearing a hat from another country. How can they not freak out over the United States stealing the next generation from these countries? The politically correct response would be to send them home, out of compassion for those left behind who weren’t born lucky with everything it takes to come here.
Most of the families affected by Trumps policy are, like them, from Central America,
So, they escaped their trouble once in Mexico. Going further to USA is refuge shopping. Uh uh, nope.
In the spirit of NAFTA, how about Mexico keep 1/3, we process 1/3 and Mexico ships 1/3 to Canada?
Of the 12,000 illegal immigrant children currently in custody along our Southern border, 10,000 didn’t come with either parent. That means 84% of these children were sent ALONE! Their parents paid smugglers and sent them on journey surrounded by who knows what to a foreign country, not to escape an encroaching war or famine but to use them as a grappling hook shot into America which can afterwards be used to pull themselves into the country! Like an invading army tying children to ropes and hurling them over the parapets!
This is all a smoke screen to distract from the criminal acts revealed in the OIG report.
but what about the children !!!!!!!
THATS THE IDEA!
Good. why don’t they just make it to mexico and stay there? It’s not the USA’s job to make everything better for the rest of the world.
we could also stop all welfare for invaders- they won’t come without any $$ offered.
Liberals hate white people. If the “crisis” were children from Norway, the leftists would be saying “build the wall. They also hate anyone who would possibly be a Republican voter. There is no way to predict that but those who are locked on to the goodies of American welfare and entitlements generally don’t vote Republican.
Maria says that as soon as her husband is released from detention in the US, the three will head back across the Rio Grande.
If we try again and if Border Patrol doesnt catch us, and we make it to our destination, then it will all be worth it.
And THIS is why the TRUE BORDER WALL will ALWAYS be needed.
