And I will lock their asses up,
And throw away the key."

Is it still worth trying to come to America as an asylum seeker? I don't
think soLuis Manchebo <https://www.theguardian.com/profile/luis-mancheno>

I am a refugee living in the United States and I know what it means to
escape death. Still, I warn others not to come – they won’t be safe or
welcome here

Don’t come here. If you are afraid for your life and you have no place to
go, don’t pick this country. It is not safe for you here any more.

If you try to cross our borders, people in military uniform called border
patrol agents, will arrest you, throw you in a freezing cage
<http://tpr.org/post/lawsuit-border-patrol-holds-migrants-freezing-cells> and
subject you to all kinds of abuses.
<https://www.americanimmigrationcouncil.org/research/no-action-taken-lack-cbp-accountability-responding-complaints-abuse>
These
agents who don’t speak your language will sit you down and interrogate you.
It won’t matter if you didn’t understand their questions, they will write
whatever they want
<https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/06/16/border-patrol-babies_n_7594618.html>
in
dozens of forms, make you sign them, and use them against you later as they
try to deport you.
