Should Victims of the Family Separation Policy Be Granted Legal Resident Status & a Path to Citizenship?

Argument in favor

Last summer’s family separation policy was cruel and inhumane. Granting the victims of that policy legal residency in the U.S., along with a path to citizenship, is the least the U.S. can do to try to make amends.

Congress should publicize the FACTS about family separation and this administration's policy, so that FOX NEWS supporters understand the reality of net negative immigration and humanitarian response to refugees. Please support legislation that provides this kind of redress for our mistreatment of asylum seekers and also educates the many victims of right-wing misinformation about the real situation.

The majority of these people were not breaking the law when they entered the country. They were asylum seekers, which means, they have to be inside the borders, by law, before they can seek and receive asylum. Therefore I support a path to citizenship for these people, reunification with their families/children and redress for the inhumane mistreatment they received at the hands of the cruel and corrupt republican party and trump administration. Those of you here who are screeching that these people entered illegally so therefore deserve everything they've received and/or should not be granted a path to citizenship, need to educate yourselves because your ignorance is an albatross around your neck and a disservice to the country.

The people caught up in the family separation policy should be given priority status to citizenship since Trump did this horrible separation. Though they still need to pass the requirements for citizenship. Hopefully this will benefit them in some small way for the horrible thing Trump did to them.

Argument opposed

The people detained under the family separation policy were unauthorized immigrants — they shouldn’t be given legal status and a pathway to citizenship simply because they were apprehended and separated.

So what do I get when I break the law? A new car? Free house? Or just a free trip to jail since I’m actually a citizen? With the amount of money the IRS says illegals cost each year (~$90 Billion after the tiny amount of revenue they generate), that’s roughly $700 a year for every single household in America. Our economy is the real victim.

Why should they get special treatment, if being separated at the border it’s for something illegal. No entry at all!

    Don’t enter illegally, don’t get separated, actions have consequences that aren’t always pleasant.

    They are refugees seeking asylum and we have a process we should adhere to. This "illegal" is wrong until the immigration folks deem them illegal. Turn off Fox and remember Trump is a pathological liar. This is the USA.

    No. It will create a loophole in the process of becoming a legal citizen. One that will be taken advantage off. Anyone desperate enough to be in the U.S. will intentionally place their family in harms way to get easy citizenship. It’s like cutting in the lunch line.

    If justice is to be served these families not only need to be reunited and granted permanent residency, they need to be given citizenship with no strings attached. They were/are coming here seeking asylum. Their rights to do that were violated, the children separated from the parents and illegally incarcerated as unaccompanied minors, and the parents deported without their children. They were declared criminals just for crossing the border. Justice is what they deserve and that means citizenship with no strings.

    If people decide to bring their children with them when they intend to break the law by entering a country illegally why should they or their family members be rewarded for this when they are jailed? Every day in this country parents who are arrested for crimes are separated from their families when jailed. Should their families also get some kind of reward when this happens? What ever happened to common sense?

    Asylum seeking is a perfectly legal form of immigration. These families were legally seeking asylum. The Trump Administration ILLEGALLY locked up these children and ILLEGALLY drugged them. These families need to be automatically granted permanent residence and given reparations just as the US granted to the illegally detained Japanese. Only when we create the American Union in which all American nations north and south of the US-Mexico border allow their respective citizens to work and live in each others’ countries freely will we ever have a true United States of America. All Americans from both continents in all countries should be allowed to work and live in any country in North or South America they please. The true south (South America) will rise again. I vote we create a true United States of America as our name states, not this fake nation that seeks to divide America from both continents up.
