    See this is also laughable. ALL land has been fought over or stolen throughout human history. So you can't demonize one race or group of people for doing what every race has done before. The Indians fought over land long before the "White devils" came to America.

    And yet you are demonizing the illegals, even though they are just doing what every race has done before.

    I agree it's laughable

    No. I never demonized illegals. If they want to be American then they need to go through the legal process like everyone else. I think I should clarify that I don't think all illegals are bad that way you can't twist my words. lol

    It wouldn't be as big a deal if Trump actually had conviction behind anything he says. The anti-immigrant stance is just as hypocritical as anything else coming from this administration, though, as Trump himself employs illegal immigrants all the time:

    This is laughable. You say it's fine for people to steal countries, because it's always been like that. But you now expect them to go through legal process, even though it's something you only recently invented.

    You can't have it both ways. This is the problem with the right, you want it both ways and can't even conceive that it's wrong.

    How can you not see what's going on here? You literally have people going on record saying they like Trump only because it pisses people off. How is that a viable solution to political discourse? He's a fucking child and most of his supporters are, I'm sure, also "very fine people." And what you consider "laughable," I consider serious issues, among many others. And you're right, that's what happens to people who are detained, but the sheer incompetence on display down at the border is shocking. There is NO FUCKING EXCUSE for a secure detainment facility being unable to put a child back with their parents. And if we can't, then we have no business taking children away from people at the border. And I still maintain that we shouldn't be doing so in the first place! Trump wanted to be President, he can get blamed like a President when he fucks up and he can be held accountable for his actions.
    Lolz, fair point.

    Wow. Where did I say it was okay? I just said you can't demonize one group of people for doing what other groups of people have done. I honestly think it's wrong to steal anything. But I wasn't there back then so nothing I can do about it now.

    If your ancestors were there, then you have benefited from it though. While holding the opinion that anyone new has to jump through more hoops.

    You were only born there, just dumb luck that your parents were horny one day.

    These people have travelled a long way to get there. Surely their right to be in America is therefore greater than yours?

    Well those people are dicks I do agree. You do know we're fighting this thing called child trafficking? We need to be 100% sure we're handing these kids back to the right parents. It sucks but there is a process they have to go through. This happened under Obama and no one said anything or very little at all about the matter.

    Obama didn't say that all families had to be split up, Trump did. Not because of child trafficking, but he wanted to make it as awful as possible so people would stop coming.

    Why are you peddling those lies?

    If it suits Trump's interest, he will defend a murderer the same way he defends just about everything else he does, by lying a lot and pleading ignorance.

    Yeah I did hit that baby lottery but it came with poverty and eating out of trashcans because we were very poor and had to live in tents for awhile. But it made me a better person and I'm really grateful for all the freedoms I have and everything I've earned for myself.

    Right, so imagine what it's like for people in similar or worse situations that are also labelled "illegals". You're still way more privileged than they are.

    If after all that you think that you somehow deserve more rights than them, then it didn't make you a better person.

    Nothing, but we're discussing America. I thought the whole point was to Make America Great Again? Why do you want to make the same mistakes as other countries??

    You saw North Korea and thought, hey we should get an insane dictator too????

    We tear gas women and children who try to seek asylum. We're already seen as extremely weak.

    You don't have secure borders, or there wouldn't be any illegals. You are weak as a country and you're becoming weaker doing the things you're doing.



    You actually need illegal immigration or your economy falls apart, by keeping them as second class citizens then it keeps their wages low.

    Studies have shown that illegal immigrants commit less crime than legal residents, they have more to lose if they get caught as they'll be deported.

    Having a President that grabs women by their pussy's and acts like an illiterate baby and keeps screaming "CNN IS ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE" makes us weak as a country.

    Not to mention by his own fucking words he should be fired as the president.
