Somewhat relevant: As some US politicians are calling for ICE to be abolished, the newly elected president of Mexico (a lefty we are told) plans to create a new "special border patrol force" to crack down on illegal immigration from central America.


Mexico’s new president is creating a special border patrol force, just like the US
Newly-elected Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador is planning to create a new security force to police Mexico’s southern and northern borders. The goal is to stop Central and South American migrants from entering Mexico and, if they managed to cross the country, from entering the US.

Mexico oversees both legal and illegal migration through its National Migration Institute. Though in recent years it has strengthened the policing of its southern border, using both police and army forces, the country doesn’t have a dedicated unit like the US’s Border Patrol.

The new plan would add to Mexico’s existing efforts to crack down on immigration from Central America. Alfonso Durazo, future secretary of public security, said in an interview with Bloomberg that the Obrador administration also plans to encourage development in Central America, in order to solve the structural problems like poverty and violence that force people to flee the region.
I do hope there is economic development in the countries themselves. That ultimately is the best way to end illegal immigration. If the people of those countries can have safe and secure lives in their own countries, maybe fewer of them will want to flee to the US.

The estimated number of Mexicans entering the US through its southern border has dropped considerably from its peak in the 2000s. Meanwhile, the estimated number of Guatemalan, Honduran, and Salvadoran migrants almost doubled from 60,000 in 2011 to 115,000 in 2014.
It's now more Central Americans than Mexicans trying to get in.

And he realizes that if Trump gets his way then they will be staying in Mexico.

The Drama continues: GOP bill applauding ICE approved in House, as Dems lament 'stunt'
The House passed a resolution Wednesday expressing support for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, as a growing number of liberals in the Democratic Party has called to abolish the agency that enforces federal immigration laws.

The non-binding resolution, sponsored by Louisiana GOP Rep. Clay Higgins, passed 244 to 35 with 133 voting present -- and Republicans may “weaponize” the vote against Democrats. The measure extols ICE for countering the narcotics trade and applauds its efforts in rescuing people caught in human-trafficking schemes.

Republicans likely will deploy this roll call vote against Democrats who didn’t vote the measure in the midterms this November, analysts have said. Democrats, ahead of the vote, dismissed it as a partisan maneuver.

They use to wear some sweet wigs.

Oh and cane each other over keeping black people as slaves.

You probably have to search the CSPAN archives for that.

Agreed; it's not what's happening.
Which part? The children being taken from their parents without a plan of unification?

The zero tolerance policy is that the adult is arrested and the child treated as if they crossed the border alone. There is no data tying one to the other, and that is a prerequisite for having any plan of reunification.
You're not even pretending to be rational any more.

He's either dead or doesn't want to be found.
