If someone yells "Get out of my country!"  shouldn't they give the person time to get out of their country before opening fire?  Seems like a common courtesy.

What if you're in Idaho and some Canuk wanders across the border.  Yell "Get out of my country" and fire two warning shots in the air.  The Canuk will thank you and ask for directions north.

If in Arizona and you see some minorities heading in to 'Merica, you yell "Get out of my country", fire two warning shots and run for covers as they are probably real bad hombres and they're equipped modern assault rifles thanks to Obama.

Kirablue42: It's getting to be close to time to start hiding people. Not quite yet but very soon.

Soon as the war starts they are trying to start so they can use "security" for a reason to deport.


I don't think we have enough attics, secret bookcase rooms and crawlspaces to put all the people in that will need hiding.
Or blank diary books for them to use.

Of course not.  A conspiracy is usually hidden.  We elected people who ran on an open platform of farking people over.

Another reason why the INA needs to be rewriten.

The employer of her murdered spouse should step up and give her a job. A decent one, not just sweeping up.

Why? What the hell do they owe her in your small mind?

At this stage, and if things keep going like this, I question whether or not I would move to the US if I was an immigrant who had a chance to start a life in a better country.  I would probably opt for western coast Canada or even England (yes, they have their dumbasses that voted for Brexit, but it seems these last elections show they at least learned from their mistake).

If language wasn't an issue I might opt for Netherlands or maybe Sweden.  But it seems we've become too cruel and too selfish and too concerned with our own "freedom" to care about what is happening to our society as a whole.

Not going anywhere, I have established a life here, just saying if I was some young, educated professional from Mexico or East Timor looking to start a career in a modern country, the US would no longer be at the top of my list.

DubyaHater: August11: Proud to be an American?

Yeah, I am. Because a congressman saw this injustice, stepped to the plate, and did the right thing. This is how America is supposed to be. There are still good people in this country regardless of who is president.


And if the man had been killed in a traffic accident and his story hadn't made the news?

Should we rely on Congress members stepping in and doing the right thing all the time?  Because I gotta tell you, the failure rate on that must be pretty high.

Nadie_AZ: myschief: I have to say after reading the article that I have more respect for Kevin Yoder (R) than before.  Good for him.

Yeah. Truly.


He's a Republican, so it was a low bar.  He exceeded it and frankly did so by a large enough margin that I'm surprised he's (R).

If we want to allow immigrants in, we need to streamline to processes used to make them citizens.  Because right now, it's a farking mess.  And there are only 2 reasons that it hasn't been cleared up:
1.  It's profitable and good for our economy to have a bunch of undocumented workers hanging around.  Don't deny it.
2.  Too many people in this country feel entitled by their having been born here.  There is THEIR country, dammit!  If you weren't born here you don't belong here.

All this talk about what to do about immigration and absolutely nothing has changed.  And now that we have Trump at the wheel, it's actually getting worse.

True, in the same way you gotta give McCain kudos for stalling the ACA repeal despite years of Republican team backing, and DeVos for paying for one girls private education tutoring despite years of trying to defend public education.

Republicans picking pets is about on par with having "that one black friend". Good job, but you are still a piece of shiat, and if the cameras were not pointed at you, I could place Vegas bets on what you would do.

Deportation can be an awful experience.
Especially if people have nothing to go back to.

History, however, says the more likely scenario is concentration internment camps.

A quick reminder that there can be worse fates than deportation. Well, at least, worse immediate fates. With her name out there, she's not safe from people who might want to follow up on what happened to her husband.
