If the "asylum seekers" really were fleeing violence and crime, they'd have it in Mexico. Unless Mexicans are in danger, too, which means...?
...all 650 million people in all of Latin America must move to the U.S. or risk death.
How can we take in everyone?
Then how can they fix their own problems at home and make their countries livable?

They have to be fleeing PERSECUTION by their govt for their political activities, religion, etc. NO ONE in Central or South America actually qualifies for asylum. They are all economic migrants, illegal aliens who want money out of the pockets of American citizens - no more, no less. They don't even want jobs, as they have turned down job offers in Mexico. In fact, they used the earnings from their jobs in their country to pay their smugglers!

That's why many of those with legitimate fears did take Mexico's offer of resettlement. But a lot of them have relatives already living illegally in the US and are willing to risk denial in a bid to live with those persons. After all, if they're sent back to Central America they can always just leave and try it again the next day. When people arrested in the US are found to have been deported dozens of times it indicates that it's just not that hard to make another stab at it.
