    Is This Really Necessary?

    Trump Administration Rules That Nearly 200,000 Salvadorans Must Leave, Officials Say

    I get it that their admittance to the country was supposed to be temporary, but this seems harsh.

    They did know this going in. This is why these programs are bad once they get here they have no intention of leaving.
    Just look at the flowers Lizzie just look at the flowers.

    Not a fan (but never been a fan of almost any immigration restriction - except that needed to ensure public safety).

    We're at, or near, full employment. We need the workers.

    That is what I am thinking. Moreover, the vast majority of these people, and the Haitians and Dreamers who are in the same predicament, are simply trying to do what all of our ancestors did--try to achieve the American Dream.

    Of course they are, but too many people believe we're full up and "the inn is closed."

    (see who gets that reference)

    Is there something about the word "temporary" that isn't understood here?

    No.

    But outside of upholding the law (ten years late) is there a good reason for doing this? Will forcing these people back to El Salvador make life better or worse for the rest of us?
