They don't really need fingerprints theses days. Just a DNA sample will do. I understand there's a backlog, Senator, and that these things take time. But we've had years to streamline the system and have chosen instead to throw up roadblocks.
My point is that these folks aren't criminals and don't need to be treated as such. And I get your point that some of them might be, but those guys gonna slip the border at night, not apply for refuge or seek employment here.
Just regular folks trying to survive. Why make it harder than it has to be?
Same goes for regular folks all across America. They're working their butts off and can't make enough to get by. And government, rather than streamline things so everybody gets enough to get by, throws up roadblocks.
