    Jeez, this thread reads like an msnbc comments section. Got news for you, more than a couple of voters think omar is an American and Jew hater and has shown zreo love for this country that has done so much for her.

    The more vile Trump gets, the deeper some Trump apologists dig in with their defense. He literally can do/say nothing wrong. One day in the future this will be quite the fascinating psychological case study, but for now it’s very sad.

    I would say they were okay because people escaping Cuba were escaping political persecution... I think that these policies were outdated, recently because the vast majority of people leaving Cuba over political persecution (as opposed to economic reasons, exclusively), came a long time ago...

    I would also not find it bigoted to suggest that these policies didn’t exist... We as Cubans didn’t have a moral right to be here, fortunately, the United States is the most generous country in the world...

    Well that’s clearly a bad deal, now isn’t it?

    I don’t care about the motivation behind the ruling... the bottom line is that Trump must either release “asylum seekers” into the general public after 21 days, or... separate the children from their families...

    Excuse me but I haven't read the whole thread, however in the first couple of posts Trump was accused of making racist statements about these 4 women. How can they be racist statements when at least one of them is white?

    Ah... most Trump supporters are racist...

    That’s a good place to start a good faith discussion...

    So when Cubams sought asylum, it was okay, but when others do it, they get indefinitely put in prison because you dont believe them despite seeking asylum being 100% legal. So much for generosity. I guess this is a roll up the carpets after I walked in sort of thing.

    Seriously... if you are claiming pretty much the half of the country that voted for Trump are racists... you have zero right to complain about the lack of discourse and conversation in our politics...

    Calling the other side racist without evidence of racism is a good way of shutting down the other side...

    Saying BS like that is what causes the heat to be continually turned up in this country...

    Saying BS like that is exactly what got Trump elected...

    Immigrants and children of immigrants account for at least 13% of all voting members of the newly sworn in 116th Congress. These lawmakers claim heritage in 37 countries – mostly in Europe, Latin America and Asia – and are overwhelmingly Democrats, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of members’ biographical information obtained from news articles, congressional offices and other sources.


    There are 52 immigrants and children of immigrants serving in the House of Representatives and 16 serving in the Senate. Counting both chambers, 57 of the 68 lawmakers who are immigrants or children of immigrants are Democrats. Ten others are Republicans, and one – Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont – is an independent.
    ===========

    Did I really need to point out these facts?

    Try a little "independent thought process" for a change - it's quite enlightening....:D

    Racial resentment is likely the better term. And it is only about half of Trump voters that display it, according to studies. It has been replicated over and over in terms of studies.

    Nope...

    If there’s a policy that asylum seekers can take advantage of, I don’t blame them for taking advantage of it...

    But we can also call out bad policy when we see it...

    No immigrants, including Cubans, have a moral right to be here... it is simply the good will and generosity of the US as to why we are here...

    I think that’s a pretty legitimate stance to have... but you probably won’t agree because you don’t believe in good faith discussions...

    Where did you find the secret Muslim playbook??? You'd better hide in your bunker before Malala Yousafzai comes to take away your duck dynasty whistles and your truck nuts.

    Also, where does the constitution decry socialism? It creates a system of governance, not a specified economy. If anything, article I section 8 seems to allow for all of the socialist/socialized aspects we already enjoy on a daily basis.
