The whole notion that debate about Immigration Policy = Hate is wrong and insulting. The bigger point is that the Democrat left is trying to equate immigration policy with hate. That's because there are more than 11 million illegals in the U.S., most of whom would be Democrat voters if their legal status is legitimized.
No nation on earth has borders where aliens can jump a fence or overstay a visa and gain permanent residency status. That's an insane notion. We are a nation of immigrants and always will be. People on the right don't hate immigrants. What they hate is lawlessness, lack of civil order and a lack of priorities in the immigration process.
We have 4 million legal immigrants in the queue, dutifully following the rules, showing patience and respect for the law. And we deeply disrespect them by letting others break the law, cheat the system, cut the line and come here illegally without waiting, and then use resources on them that should be going to deserving people who follow the law. Alll the talk about hate by the left is very hollow, politically self serving and hypocritical.
Well said, TruthSayer. The hate is ALL from the far left. I wish all of them who said they will move out of the country if Trump was elected would just go. Legal immigrants are more than welcome to come in and make some great contributions to our overall society. They do great things for us all. Illegal immigration must be stopped. Totally unfair to the ones doing it the legal way. I know some legal immigrants who have become citizens who are very angry at the illegal immigration situation. They definitely voted Trump this past election.
Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbour.
Communism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then gives you some milk.
Fascism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then sells you some milk.
Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
Nazism: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots you.
Those descriptions are all absurd. Unfortunately, they're also all true, although I would amend the last to read "Liberalism: You have two cows - liberals take both, give both to an illegal immigrant, call you a racist, an say you are consumed by hate."
Four million doctors, engineers, teachers, etc. in queue going through the legal immigration process - people like Mr Hori from W Highland Ave - being made to wait and wait and wait while we cater to a never-ending flood of illegals. Those poor people haven't even gotten here yet, and already they're the victims of injustice. Either come here legally and be welcomed with open arms, or hop the fence and be arrested and deported. It's the law. What the heck is so complicated about that?
"Either come here legally and be welcomed with open arms"
What kind of nonsense is that? This week a young US citizen was detained and sent back to the country of flight origin simply because the agents in charge hadn't done their homework and didn't like the sounds of his name (foreign, of course). They were acting like Trump's Brown Shirts, not like agents abiding by American laws. This citizen was treated unfairly and suffered unnecessarily simply because of the racist, fascist conduct now condoned by this administration. He posed no threat and was ultimately admitted, after having been treated very, very badly. (mainstream news item, FYI)
Melrose citizens of brown skin have been spit on, taunted, shunned, and their children have had to endure being asked if their parents "are terrorists" among other horrific things. How dare you trivialize and ignore the outright racism and cultural brutality that has reared its ugly head now even in this so-called "nice" community thanks to the stage that has been set by the Brown Shirt mentality put forward by Bannon et al. Sure, you just go ahead and pretend this is all about "liberals who lost the election" because that fits your tiny and quite nasty outlook on the world. Forget looking at the whole picture and facing the ugliness on both sides in a balanced, mature way. Keep it up with the juvenile attitude. When they come for you, you will be wondering what happened, but there won't be anyone left to defend you. Oh and by the way, there won't be any arts or school systems (other than those offered by extremist religious organizations) or healthcare (except for the rich) or functioning infrastructure, safe roads, drinkable water, breathable air. Bur sure, this is just about those dang "liberals" who are sore losers....
For the life of me I can't figure out what part of "illegal" these idiots don't understand?
