Maybe if we hadn't destabilize half of Central America they wouldn't be having so much civil unrest that they have to flee.

We can thank Ronald Reagan and Oliver North for that.

This is an abusers' excuse. "I wouldn't have to beat her if she would just do what I say." What's really shocking is how many republicans repeat this excuse.

"Once you break the law, you give up ALL of your rights and are subject to anything, up to and including deadly force."

This is what some people actually believe.

Of course, it only applies to those other people.

This was the whole point. Sessions himself said that separating parents from their children would be a deterrent to people coming. It was a feature, a draconian feature, but a feature, not a bug.

I've got a better solution:  kick these cruel, psychotic, condescending motherfarkers out of office and stop it from ever happening again.

People seeking asylum aren't breaking the law. The other 30% are committing a misdemeanor and do not deserve to lose their children. And that family of American citizens whose American citizen child was kidnapped certainly didn't do anything wrong.

I really want some disgruntled asshole at the State Department to start denaturalization proceedings for Melania.

The boarder disaster is a long running drama specifically designed to make crossing as unbearable as possible. It started a long time ago, and was propped up by your favorite President, whoever he is.

People sat down in conference rooms to figure out how to make boarder crossing as lethal and objectionable as possible. We are reaping the fruits of their labor

Ambivalence: This is an abusers' excuse. "I wouldn't have to beat her if she would just do what I say." What's really shocking is how many republicans repeat this excuse.


Those lessons begin at an early age in  Madrassa Sunday school.

/Did anyone ever think maybe Trump was against chain migration because he doesn't get along with his in-laws?
 
2018-07-11 03:06:38 PM  
The fact that people are willing to face the shiatshow at the border tells me they're facing life or death realities in their home country.

Abusers always blame their victims, like a wife-beater who legitimately believes its her fault he has to strike her
 
2018-07-11 03:10:13 PM  
This is like a cop pulling you over for a broken taillight. Beating you up, putting your kids in foster care, then telling you that it's all your fault.
 
2018-07-11 03:10:21 PM  
Anyone who's pro-life and still supports Trump really doesn't care about babies.

Point that out to them and they go ballistic over it.
 
2018-07-11 03:10:41 PM  
It is illegal to bar people seeking asylum from our ports of entry, but we have effectively done just that. It is illegal to penalize asylum seekers , but we have criminally prosecuted them for "illegal" entry and violated their rights to due process by taking away their children.- NY Times

Seeking asylum is not against the law. PERIOD.

To subby's more salient point: Melania Trump may have been here illegally, and fraudulently. This deserves so much more attention than it has received.
 
2018-07-11 03:13:13 PM  
What about the families of U.S. citizens you separated? What should they have done?

All of these excuses are Nazi bullshiat. Anyone who buys into them is broken.
 
2018-07-11 03:14:13 PM  
Yeah, well... you overused that argument, sunshine. You made it so hard to emigrate legally so folks risk their life trying to get here.  It's not a question of "stop coming".  It never was.  It's your fault for being a developed nation.  When you start using grown-up excuses, then maybe we'll listen.  Right now?  You're not an adult.

This.

But expecting Donnie to understand that is pretty much an impossible task. He wants the legal visa workers that can staff his hotels for $5 an hour; he does not want the people just seeking to not be shot or raped or abused since they are of no benefit to him.

Asylum seekers aren't breaking the law. You don't have to use a port of entry if you immediately surrender yourself.

Which is exactly what the ICE abusers are telling these women. They not only follow orders, they comprehend them and relish them.

Are there no opportunities for people from Central America in Mexico? Serious question. You seem to hear more and more about how Mexico's GDP has improved over the years.

In 2017 they were on par with the US in real growth rate (2.1%M, 2.2%US), in 2016 they were ahead of the US 2.3% vs 1.5%. A lower unemployment rate too, 3.6% vs 4.4% in 2017.

These are the same people saying that you have to free Manafort because violating the terms of your bail is no reason to lock someone away without (read: before) a trial.

"A 1-year-old boy in federal custody who appeared in immigration court without his parents briefly played with a ball, drank from a bottle, then 'cried hysterically.'"

Babies appearing in court. That's President Trump's immigration policy. #KeepFamiliesTogether

Texas

But before that Florida

But before that the Spanish Armada and earlier Spanish papist  plots against Henry VIII and his Protestant divorces... we inherit our hatred of Spanish and mistrust of the French from our Colonial and English heritage.

The only way to solve this is actual civil war.  No holds barred.  No one left alive on the losing side.  Drive every last man, woman, and child into the ocean to be eaten by sharks.  The problem with the last civil war was leaving people alive to hold a grudge.  Every civil war.  The suni and the shia.  North vs south.  Fight the war to the bitter end.  No surrender.  No truce.  No peace without all the blood.  If even a single child is left alive from the other side they will grow up and hold a grudge.  Then the grudge will stick around for a thousand years and come back.  Salt the earth.  Erase the losers from history.  Invent time travel and exterminate the losers from the very instant they are formed.  Total annihlation is the only way.

Well, if we want we can go all the way back to the Golden age of Piracy or the discovery of the new world. We aren't exactly known for giving indigenous peoples a fair shake.

The folks saying 'then don't break the law' are on a fast track to a lot of ignore lists.

In what world is asking for help 'breaking the law'? Oh, right, it's the world of lawlessness dressed in a flag.

If you want a f*cking blue wave, call your congresspeople and tell them the magic word: Amnesty.
