Cough.
Note that having breached the wall they turned themselves in. Because they are making the claim of asylum, a legal immigration status.

Yes,  to still support Trump's wall requires an utter contempt for the facts regarding how,  and why,  people are coming in.

Regarding the fifties TV show - the parallels are truly eerie.

Quote
"Trackdown” aired on CBS between 1957 and 1959 and took place in Texas following the Civil War. The series followed Texas Ranger Hoby Gilman, played by Robert Culp, on his adventures protecting the people of the Lone Star State. The 30th episode of the show, titled “The End of The World,” premiered on May 9, 1958, and saw a con man named Walter Trump, played by Lawrence Dobkin, attempt to scam the entire town.

The fictional Trump warned the Texans that apocalyptic meteors would strike the town at midnight, but he could protect everyone. “I bring you a message,” he said. “A message few of you will be able to believe…but be not afraid my friends: I also bring you the means with which to save yourself.”

His solution was to build a wall made of magical metal that would repel the meteors and keep everyone safe. As the citizens started to believe Trump, he offered to give them walls for $50 each. However, Ranger Gilman wasn’t convinced. Pandemonium erupted in the town, but in the end Gilman arrests Trump for grand theft and fraud.

Big picture.  Don't just look at things currently.

Big expenditure but helps border patrol

I can see why the IDEA is a problem for some.  What it makes us look like.  For most it has little to do with the dollars.

And if their claim for asylum is denied because 'for a better life' may not be a valid asylum/refugee claim?

Mueller’s office letting us know the actual situation is more clearly criminal than buzzfeed reported. The full facts also implicate Sean Hannity and Mike Pence.
