We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Andrew C. McCarthy: Why the Border Crisis Is Here to Stay: Immigration law commands that aliens who do not have a legal right to be present in the United States “shall be detained pending a final determination of credible fear of persecution and, if found not to have such a fear, until removed.”
Aliens can be paroled under certain circumstances: 8 CFR § 212.5 - Parole of aliens into the United States.
I spoke with a friend in church yesterday - He runs a trucking company, and a few of his contracts are for transporting crude from South Texas wells - regular runs from production facility tank farms to refineries.
His drivers spend their time on the highways of South Texas. They see empty charter buses going south, full charter buses going north, all passengers wearing masks, poorly dressed, mostly Hispanic. Buses are unmarked, lots of them running. Consistent with the media reports.
The border crisis is here to stay just like there was no border crisis 9 months ago.
