Also. I have talked to a few people about this and I have figured something out. People generally can't see that this stuff is racist, only because they don't understand what racism is. People who defend their racism by saying, "I have black friends." Or talking about how they are nice to black people. That is not all that racism is. Btw, I know they don't know what racism is, because the same "not racist" people were unhappy that I, "a black man" wanted to date their daughter/niece. Specifically because of how "black dudes typically are". They were 100% percent sure that being black meant I could only ever cheat, smoke and beat her. But. They aren't racist.

WOW. Another vaguely racist thing said by Trump. How many times are his supporters gonna have to defend him? I have always believed that if it keeps happening, it is not a coincidence.

The way The Daily downplays what’s happening at the border is infuriating. Also their language concerning how freshman politicians “should” act. Ugghhh, disappointed.

As sympathetic as this woman sounds, economic migrants do not have the right to tell the US that they must be allowed reside here. That right belongs only to US citizens, collectively, as conveyed through our laws. Furthermore, we can't decide to obey only the laws we like and ignore those we don't. If we only obey the laws we like, it will destroy the social compact that makes our democracy work.

Linda Susan Erickson yeah agreed. just curious what you think: so since she's been here for what was is, 15ish years, do you think that should play a role in how her case is handled or does time not matter in cases of undocumented immigrants? idk the answer. it's definitely a tough question. is there a time limit for how far back we should go? especially for people brought here as children?

Marcus Phillips dude first of all...Breitbart is objectively not a reliable source because it is very mixed on the facts and is extremely biased. 2nd Obama didn't separate kids from their parents, many child migrants came by themselves, which is still happening today but Trump and sessions literally said their reasoning for separating the kids was to deter people from coming here which hasn't worked. 3rd almost no one is for open borders so stop listening to Trump's stupid claims that that's what the Dems want. 4th instead of fighting for these kids Trump still wants his stupid wall which a. won't help, and b. is taking funds away from the migrants which is why the conditions down there are such shit. also wasn't Mexico gonna pay for the wall? also why is Trump lying about the wall already being built? even the president isn't a reliable source of news and Breitbart is basically a trump propaganda machine

Why dont you mention that the overwhelming majority of Hispanics support that question being on the census? How is this question controversial?

Chris It’s not about public opinion it’s about the constitution and how to structure a representative democratic society. The census is about getting a count. Anything that hinders the accuracy of the census is unconstitutional. Fairly simple guys. And the right likes to talk about constitutional originality. The census didn’t include any questions about any sort of naturalization until the third or fourth census and even then it wasn’t about citizenship. This is of course all irrelevant to the fact that republicans have shown that they want to put the question on there purely for political gain.
