Senator John F. Kennedy explained the three steps he would take to help solve the boundary crisis and what he learned after Drilling Secretary Mayorcas asked questions about the boundary on “your world.“
o. John Kennedy: This is what I learned today. I learned today that either Secretary Mayorcas believes in completely open borders or he is not qualified to run Chuck E. Cheese. Now, he is not incompetent. He is not an unintelligent man. It is clear to me, after listening to the secretary for three, maybe 4 hours, that he thinks in open borders.
There are three simple steps, one of which I asked could solve three-quarters of our problem tomorrow. He refuses to do any of these three. I repeat, I’m done after today, he just thinks the borders should be wide open.
It is not a unilaterally safe third country programme. If we don’t need anyone’s permission to say to refugees, if you want to seek asylum, you have to seek asylum in the first safe country other than your own. In most cases, this is Mexico.
And if you pass through Mexico and do not seek asylum, but Come to the United StatesWe’re kicking you out. Number two, if you start out in Mexico and seek asylum in the United States, you fill out the paperwork in Mexico and stay in Mexico until the court date.
Third, when you go to court, if you lose and most asylum seekers lose, you will be deported immediately, and not allowed to stay in the United States permanently. These three things will solve three-quarters of our problem.
