    Oh really? How about you address this, then somebody might take you seriously or perhaps (hopefully) you will learn something.

    You address it, I'm not interested.

    I've got dogs to walk and supper to eat.

    I'm not going to name any names, but I will say that some of those people cross over the line into racism and bigotry.
    Your spine should unchill. A country protecting its borders is not exercising bigotry or xenophobia.

    Let the chips fall where they may, I don't bite my tongue.

    If what I say upsets someone, maybe they have a problem.
    I doubt this foolishness upsets anyone, though it might amaze.

    No, I am using long time terminology that has been used for hundreds of years where you are using terms incorrectly and using the recently made up garbage. Migrants have always been a work visa class characterized by the fact that they return home on a seasonal basis.

    Look, you got caught playing the word game and you know it. Now you're clinging in hopes someone will believe it. No one is buying it.

    I didn't say that it was and I support the USA protecting its borders.

    But none of that changes the fact that a small percentage of the US population are racist, bigoted, xenophobes.

    So, you CHOOSE to remain ignorant and prefer to think that people are bigots instead of looking at the issue rationally? Okay, then. I think it's shameful that some people would rather look at their fellow human beings in the WORST possible light instead of trying to understand the reality of the situation.

    Enjoy your sourness.

    Yep. just like any other country.

    If the children had not crossed the border illegally, there would be no issue.

    Well, to be fair, a small minority of the open borders set only advocate what they do because they are guilty about being closet racists.

    Some people can accept reality, some reject it.
