Most immigration to the U.S. actually comes from Asia now - primarily India and China, but other places as well.
Many of the “illegal” immigrants in the country were actually once “legal” immigrants. They are now here because they have either overstayed their work or student visa, or have not met the conditions to have their visa renewed.
Asylum seekers are a different category than regular immigrants. Lumping them together is lazy because they come to this country under different programs and must meet different requirements.
I’m not going to try to dive into all of the politics of it because immigration and asylum are complex things.
I will note that just because Democrats don’t support a border wall doesn’t mean open borders. Did you know that Mexico actually has had a negative immigration rate with the U.S. over the past few years. That means more people went from the U.S. to Mexico than from Mexico to the U.S.
Just a few items to think about while you sit on the couch in a food coma over the next few days.
