The problems do not originate at the border.

I very much agree with you on this aspect. Lamplighter brought up this issue in another thread. As I responded to him, I'll repeat. We've thrown endless amounts of money it seems at the problem, we've sent Special Forces for advisors, we've sent various dignitaries in attempts to reverse this, diplomat after diplomat to address this issue, all without seeming to have any effect on it.
We have to realize we can not change the world, beyond our borders. EU is facing the same invasion. All the migrants seem to either be headed this way for economic or safety concerns and the first world seems to be their Mecca. Our policies need some serious readjustments, with the acknowledgement of the real world we live in. Not the world of the 1950's. The initial migrants for the most part are not skilled in the things we need as far as tech end goes. They are willing to supply labor to do jobs we can't or won't do. So there is a place for them but not under these circumstances.
I am not against an orderly immigration. What we have now is anything but orderly. It's a mass of humanity without seeming end. In the border towns, there is no room for them, they are literally sleeping on the sidewalks after contacting law enforcement. There is little enough food to go around, the majority of it donated by charities. This didn't seem to be anyone else's problem in the US until they started shipping them out to other cities around the country. When the bill came due on housing, feeding, and health services, suddenly it's a bit much. They've only had a couple of years of this to deal with. Unacknowledged is that this has been going on a good while, decades. Every year seems more than the last year. In Texas, the finances have long ago been strained in dealing with this. We need to literally build tent cities to house them while waiting for a court hearing, not just releasing them. There are not enough Border Patrol agents, not enough judges, not enough lawyers to represent them, not enough hospital and doctors to attend the ailing. Those that are attending these are far too few with not enough time to address individual needs because of the mass influx. Everyone is overwhelmed.
