“China had forcibly returned scores of ethnic Kachins who have fled Myanmar, a human rights group said last year.”

Wow, “scores.” Doesn’t a ‘score’ equal, like, twenty? Compare that to the US immigration rate, and it’s just laughable.

Yes, rather than be more like Europe or Eastern Asia, let us be more like Latin America — that is the sum-total of current U.S. immigration policy.

Gosh, I can’t wait until the United States becomes more like Nicaragua. Won’t that be great? Gringos estan llamas.

This comes as no surprise. Last year, China sent patrol boats to join patrol vessels from other countries to protect shipping on the Mekong River after pirates attacked Chinese trading vessels. Whenever there is a conflict or law enforcement problem that may endanger civilians, it is helpful to have additional forces from a neutral power that can help rescue those noncombattants from danger.

@Schifter:
Actually, Obama has repatriated more illegal immigrants to their countries of origin than any of the last few American Presidents.
