    Never forget America is a Nation of immigrants. Even the First People (so-called Native Americans) came from somewhere else.

    Great commentary, Mr. Marrin.

    When a government has determined in advance that immigrants, even those seeking asylum legally, are the enemy, there are no ends they wouldn’t go to in order to demonize and punish them. Nationalism is inherently anti-Christian (and anti-humanist, if the truth be told).

    The sad part is that we can have secure borders AND immigration. Unfortunately, most people see it as either OR.

    How about this as a proposal: instead of the troops putting up barbed wire, they also put up tents, sanitary facilities, and other infrastructure to process these people in an organized manner.

    It is a win for Mexico since they will not have to deal with the numbers and we could even enlist their help in a cooperative effort instead of threatening them or criticizing them.

    It is a win for the asylum seekers since they will have a fair hearing and more importantly will not be treated nor seen as a faceless, threatening “mob” but as human beings instead.

    It is a win for the Untied States since it still secures our border, takes a lot fewer troops and the United States is not seen as the International Bully in world opinion.

    First, those people didn’t walk all the way. They had transportation. Next this was organized by other groups. It just didn’t come together: Gee guys let’s just start walking North. It took a lot of money and organization to get them up here, and $20,000 was contributed by the Catholic church. Then the Catholic Church earns millions caring for refugees in America. The issue really is an attack on National sovereignty. T’is all about Critical Theory.

    They were all offered jobs in Mexico and none of them accepted. No free stuff from the government, I guess. How about telling the truth rather than preaching using half-truths and outright lies.

    Of COURSE they’re usually better workers. They’re going to another country to work. You know what kind of drive that takes?

    Hard-working family people willing to sacrifice EVERYTHING just to make a better life for themselves. And an Orange Loudmouth who sexually assaults women calls them “rapists” and incites mob mentality against them. It’s disgusting.

    Our border doesn’t need a wall, it needs a job fair

    The Wall has always been for us, not them.

    Trump just changed the Joint Chief of Staff. The former one disagreed with his orders to “shoot to kill” immigrants.
