No, bitehard69, it isn't legal to just anyone to apply for asylum. International law is to apply for asylum to a neighboring country. You don't get to pick and choose which country you want to go to.

So what is your solution? Allow any adult accompanied by any child to cross the border and disappear into the American population? Send children to jail with their parents? Accept any claim by any adult that he or she is a legitimate parent or legal guardian of a minor child, and leave the child with that adult?

Here's a quote to think about, if thinking is your thing: "Most reports of human trafficking comes from, not-surprisingly, the border states of California and Texas. The #1 risk factor for potential victims of human trafficking? Recent migration.

Even more disturbing: The average life span of a victim is reported to be 7 years. These innocents are found dead from abuse STD's, malnutrition, being beaten to death by their cartel pimp, overdose, or suicide."

But according to people like you, the real abuse lies in sequestering children from jail populations and/or separating children from questionable adults, even while knowing that many children accompanying unrelated adults are then abandoned on our side of the border to become victims of abuse and sex slavery.

Personally, I would end all asylum applications not made through official channels at a very few official border offices. Period. If someone gets caught trying to cross the border, with children in tow, if I couldn't confirm without a doubt that these were actually the parents I would jail the adults and put the children into care. And I would have a much stricter penalty for adults trying to cross with other peoples' children. And once the parental relationship is confirmed, I would send those families straight back, after doing fingerprinting and retinal scans of the entire family so if any of them is ever caught in this country againt without papers the offense will be a felony with mandatory jail time, followed by deportation.

The policy Trump is "continuing" is allowing people caught at the border to then claim asylum, and be examined as possible candidates for asylum, instead of only accepting asylum seekers through legitimate channels.
