Just a thought - Don't we deserve asylum too, especially now?

I usually dont post but I just read something that really disturbed me.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but today, in the yahoo news I just read about a woman from Kenya that was just paid by the U.S. over 1 million dollars in pain and suffering because she and her daughter were denied political asylum in the U.S. (San Francisco Airport) a couple years back.

She was deported back to Kenya and went into hiding for a little while before she made a second attempt for asylum by flying into Texas in which it was granted.

My question is this: Why is it that when Haitians come over they are so quick to send us back?

Don't we deserve asylum to, especially now?

Maybe we should instruct our people to fly into Texas...
