    Of course it's a good idea when you don't factor in economy and population, crime, disease etc...

    No, it is a terrible precedence.

    Yes, but when did you ever go to them? Never.

    That's not a selling point.

    MS-13 and a government who won't handle their business are now Nazi's too. This cheapens the tragedy that happen.

    Your argument was that it is the violence in their home countries that drives them here. I've shown that to be nonsense, as there are much, much closer alternatives. Further you argue that America is responsible for the current violence in their home states. Again, nonsense. America may have in the past, as in DECADES ago, leveraged the native violence to achieve US goals. We did not create that environment, we used it to our advantage, again DECADES ago.

    And no, to the UN and you. Don't have to scoot anywhere, just have to vote every politician that votes yes on this turd out of office forever.

    So? What does this have to do with your question or my answer?

    He doesn't need to be voted out, he's naturally leaving. And I'm sorry for your ignorance of over a century of US policy that has held this region down.

    It seemed you were denying UN involvement in the creation of the state of Israel, if not, then nothing, move along.

    For the Obama Administration, let me explain to you what a humanitarian crisis looks like, what refugees look like

    Iraq crisis: End 'very near' for Christianity after Isis takeover, says Bishop of Baghdad - Middle East - World - The Independent

    Not the BS you're trying to sell to the public regarding drug wars, gangs, and ineffectual government in Central America..

    That doesn't answer the question. What arguments in the article are sheer fantasy?

    "When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."
