Re: The 2020 Census

"If he wanted to claim asylum, he could have applied for it in El Salvador.
Once he crossed the border, he could have applied in Guatemala, and then again in Mexico."

US law says that you can make an asylum claim when you set foot on US soil. That's why these people are trying to get to our border. 75% of them are turned down, but they try anyway. You're supposed to do it at a legal border crossing, but some get impatient with the process and cross illegally. Desperate people sometimes do desperate things.

The story as I understand it is that the father and daughter had made it safely across. The father put the child on the river bank, told her to wait, and then went back into the water intending to bring his wife across. The child was frightened and followed him back into the water. He tried to save her, and they both drowned.

"They died in MEXICO, not in the US."

Wrong - they died on our side of the border. The border runs through the middle of the Rio Grande, not its southern edge. That river bank you see in the photo is Texas.
