We have laws to protect US citizens. The administration is obligated to enforce the laws. People wishing to enter our country must obey our laws or face the consequences of breaking our laws. We have embassies and consulates in these countries the people are fleeing from and through where they can apply for asylum. The previous administration’ failures in enforcing our laws has cruelly encouraged people to believe they don’t have to obey our laws nor respect our borders. This has led to the current so called crisis.
