Of course they should. The biggest question is how to keep Border Security and the Trump Administration honest and respectful in the review process. They haven’t been so far and there’s no reason to believe they will be at any point in the future. I continue to be curious about how much more contemptuous the Trump Administration will become.
If families come seeking asylum they should be allowed to present their case. This wouldn’t even be an issue if it weren’t for the asinine family separation policy of the current regime. It is high time for congress to grow a pair of balls and return to being more positive concerning those seeking asylum.
