    @Gamingwiz135 @Takahata101 I agree that's not just Mexico. How do we go about addressing this problem? If I migrated here from one of those countries, I'd probably lie about my nation of origin too.

    @LeslieMarshall When will the parent, their country of origin, and Mexico ever be held to account for this? They are a part of the problem too.

    @crinrict - Would you have any idea on how to fix the issue with ucrtbase.DLL and Origin? I have no idea which VisualStudio to repair if any, and AnswersHQ just moved my question to a "Solved" thread that.. really wasn't any use.

    @MoonBatsUnited @NadineNardine @nowthisnews @UNHumanRights Guatemalans living in the U.S. who started a Gang; then, to use familial roots to take over their Home Country of National Origin does nothing to move the needle over to America's Problem.

    @marcorubio Why not just send the entire family back to their country of origin immediately. No detaining of parents. No separating children from their parents. Problem solved. @POTUS

    William Spencer (@warsmatter) reported

    @trickcyclistraf @Voiceofaveteran @RUSI_org It appears that there have been/are cases of selective hearing. The issue is worth discussing further. The shrinkage of HM Forces in terms of manpower, will mean future reliance on historians of whatever origin.

    Amy James (@amyphilo) reported

    @CarmineSabia @jazziehill So many problems with this situation, if the children are illegal, they should be sent back to a housing facility back in their country of origin until they can be reunited with family. Even criminals have rights, even children of criminals. The US should not be taking those kids

    @JohnKasich Can the United Nations demand the countries of origin take responsibility for their own people and not be cruel? The immigration/refugee problem is horrendous and no good solution is apparent.

  • TheQueenLiberty
    The Queen Liberty - Canis caninam non est (@TheQueenLiberty) reported

    @ShepherdMao Hard to debate when the concept so complex. The root or origin of the issue must be questioned 1st & foremost. As a child kidnapped, my parents quiet about it - must raise questions. Malaysians are so oppressed not allowed to fight for basic rights. Children are pawns of Govt.

  • painttubes
    A Colonel of Truth (@painttubes) reported

    @pambesteder Put all of them, family integrity, on busses - return to country of origin. We have no obligation to create a solution for a problem we did not create. To the contrary, we have a duty to implement and carry out offensive actions to preserve our national security. Pretty simple.

    @George_WatsonGA @SDfreeto @SMBruno9 @burgessev @christinawilkie @gofundme People are being turned away at ports of entry due to over capacity issues. When asylum is denied people are sent back to the country of origin. How about we build humane dentention centers along the boarder as a barrier? Still cheaper & more effective than a ridiculous wall.

    @ChrisCoons @PressSec You seriously need to stop posting this nonsense. They are illegal immigrants, they’ve broken the law and put their children at risk. We should send them all back to their country of origin.

    @SenJohnMcCain Give me a break!! If they cross the border illegally then they have broken the law!! Process them as a family, verify their status & then return them to their country of origin!! We need to stop the madness & start concentrating on fixing our own problems!!

    Anyone know why I could be experiencing issues when trying to update The Sims 4 through Origin? It always says “Error: 327682:0” and instead of saying “Update” on the button, it says “Install”. A bit of help, please? @EAHelp

    Joan Brown (@bluelight45) reported

    @mistyrebeca You know that not everyone who arrived at Ellis Island was allowed to stay. If they were sick, did not have a sponsor, or would be a drain on society by not working, they would be sent back to their country of origin.

    @BMLewis2 @mattyglesias @3lueDoggie Implying that if Matt calls himself Latino/x that he'd be wrong to do so? The cultural notion of passing as white is a totally different issue. I'm certain Yglesias, because of his physical appearance, is assumed to be "white" regularly. But country of origin of grandparents?

    @EAHelp @OriginInsider PLEASE respond to my message and help me get my Origins access fixed and running. I've been waiting for a phone call and a supervisor to help me fix these issues for almost 5 or 6 months now! I purchased the year membership and it's broken I can't even play

    Lee Sweetapple (@Eclectic_Lee_S) reported

    Now for the rest of the story. Interference with our intervention in the countries of origin of the refugees to hunt drug dealers and terrorists has produced the situation we are faced with. Non interventionists on the left and right have created part of this problem. #borderkids

    Keep Rollin' (@RobSpaghettios) reported

    @STOTTINMAD Solo wasn't a bad movie. The problem was, it was so self-contained that it didn't feel anything like Star Wars. And as an origin story it felt like it should have been part 2 rather than part 1. We don't really care for Han at all. He's just some dude.... lol

    SomeUserOnHere (@lrichardson727) reported

    @KRDONC13 Maybe it's because the origin of tipping is wrongful. Tipping was an up-front thing to get better service, not after. If the company paid employees a decent wage to begin with, not make their customers subsidize their salaries for "better service" then this wouldn't be a custom.

    @crinrict Do you know how to fix the Origin crashing during the OriginThinSetupINternal.exe? I'm basically locked out of Origin unless I use older version which just force me to update Origin the next time and it continues to crash then onwards.

    @UplayUbisoft @CaiusTSR Probably because people are sick of having to use multiple drm platforms on PC. I've had way more issues with Uplay and Origin than I have ever had with steam. And fragmented libraries suck. Think if there were 4 or 5 separate stores on the ps4?!

    @RealAlisonPoole Only a short-term band-aide that addresses the "optics" of the problem. There's no solution to protecting our borders or preventing more of the same behavior from the parents, their country of origin, or Mexico.

    @blaccoffee @DiamondandSilk U.S. has enough of its own problems taking care of it's own citizens. No more! Send them all back immediately with their litters. Charge back to Country of Origin. Sick of supporting illegals.

  • DaddyRolleda1
    Daddy Rolled a 1 (@DaddyRolleda1) reported

    Hawkman #1: 3.5/5 stars. I've never been a huge Hawkman fan, partly because of the myriad of conflicting origin stories over the years. This issue tries to reconcile all that, but as a character, Hawkman seems a bit boring. Madame Xanadu in this issue is much more interesting.

  • kaogenous

    alright, ignoring the rest of fucked-up immigration policy in the U.S., why aren't illegal families just deported? why are they detained, separately, in cages? if the so-called problem is "illegal" immigration, then let them go back to their country of origin?

    @thehill Don't blame the bushes. Here is the problem. It was getting more unsafe for people to live in their countries of origin. It is not justCentral American countries being deported. It is any country who has brown skin.

  • PaulAMarketos
    Paul A Marketos (@PaulAMarketos) reported

    @mattyglesias On this issue, I agree with you. The @POTUS should be talking to those escaping to the US about what's going on in their country of origin, and figuring out what needs to be done to resolve the problem so they can live in their own homeland.

  • RealGOP3
    Real GOP (@RealGOP3) reported

    @WalshFreedom Your fixes dont solve this issue with children and its simple: If they are caught with US borders, they should be registered, housed, and then sent back to point of origin. All of this should happen with children NOT separated from their parents

    @ABC7 @GMA “Forced separation” channel 7. Give me a break. Had these parents stayed in their country of origin there wouldn’t be an issue. But they chose to enter illegally putting themselves and their children’s lives in danger. This is a direct result of their actions.

  • NotPCCPA

    @nellpost @fuLc_ @TomiLahren Perhaps the government of the country of origin should do something about that problem...then all of the conversations we are having about illegal immigration could stop.

  • Gregtechelp
    GoHawks (@Gregtechelp) reported

    @hairycaray I put the blame where it lies—on the parents. They could have stopped in Mexico and sought asylum, they didn’t. That’s not our fault or responsibility to fix. If people want to help them, then they should get to those countries of origin and help make them better to fix the root

  • Curiousferret1

    @CobaltDawg Send them back to their country of origin. Why waste our resources holding them in prison then sending them back as well as creating a moral issue over the treatment of the kids.

    MarkMizzou 🥃🏌🏼‍♂️🇺🇸🏝 (@MMS5833) reported

    @steelerfan6rngs Could not agree more. The fact people milk the system has nothing to do with race or country of origin. It’s about a broken system that needs fixed.

  • Mamato_Marcello
    Mamato Marcello (@Mamato_Marcello) reported

    @archcavalier @drnijee @spectatorindex Illegal immigrants are symptoms. Build wall will not solve the problem. Find the root cause and address it. Charge the origin country for every detainee caught, apply economic pressure or whatever. But NOT separating children from their parents. That's ducked up and inhumane.

    CJ McGuinness (@CJMcG56) reported

    @WhiteHouse 314% increase in the last 5 months of adults & children arriving at the border fraudulently, claiming to be families? IF that were true, which I HIGHLY doubt,why don't you help countries of origin mitigate dangers/issues causing this massive uptick in desperation?

    @CyrusMMcQueen It saddens me to feel that I must agree with you. It's one of those things in life that's happening in spite of just how badly you don't want it to be. There's a sadness & a growing anger that we can't overcome skin color/ethnic origin issues. What the hell is wrong with people?

    have to say it again...the problem is not what we are doing to these children in our country...the real problem is in the country of origin where these children are being lined up for a march over our borders...CHILD ABUSE IN THEIR NATIVE COUNTRY IS WHERE WE NEED TO PLACE THIS

    @LisaMei62 @prayingmedic They communicate over secret servers and issue their leftist marching orders while ignoring any suggestion of impropriety on their part.

    Instead of encouraging people to abandon their countries of origin, why don't leftists want to fix the problems there. Seems that would solve everything. Quality of life goes up, migration stops. Seems like there is nothing left over which to argue...

    @The_Truthly @OriginBroadband We live in a rural area with patchy mobile signal. It’s our lifeline. Origin have told us it will take 10days to fix their mistake made within minutes of saying we won’t be renewing and wanted to cancel at the end of our contract. I don’t buy that it was an accident.
