So the rest of the world saw the idea of America has a bastion of freedom and morality and judged it hollow and the republicans just decided to lean into it then? Like, how do you find yourself in a hotel preventing what are essentially kidnap victims from speaking to a civil rights attorney and not think "wait are we the bad guys?"

We should also highlight that big UFC-Fighter-like people are allowed to be scared of gangs, war and political retribution. If you fear for your life and seek asylum in a democratic country you should be allowed entry regardless of how you look

@I Hate Toy Story 4 did you not watch the video? The “sanctuary states” don’t have capacity and are far too near to the countries most people are fleeing, America is the only true sanctuary state

@Gavin This is why I left the Democrats. They think anyone who wants to live in USA can make up a story about being scared and they get to live in America. They don’t have to go to the court for the court to decide if they can stay. They can go to a sanctuary state and not worry about being deported
Gavin Пре дан
@I Hate Toy Story 4 we need to let them temporarily reside while their cases are heard, we can’t let them get killed, just say you hate brown people and go

@Gavin So if any person wants to live in America they just have to say gangs will kill them in the country they are from? Anyone from Latin America can say that. Anyone can pretend that a gang threatened them. That seems like a easy way to live in USA. If any person in Latin America wants to live in America they just have to make up a story of being scared in the country they are from

I think that at this point, the US might have even surpassed Australia for how cruelly it treats asylum seekers. Which is saying something, particularly given that Australia served as Trump’s inspiration for how to treat asylum seekers cruelly in the first place. That is, make it known they’ll be basically tortured, and hopefully they won’t even apply for it in the first place. Of course, America isn’t yet locking up asylum seekers (who have committed no crime) for over eight years on a tropical island gulag yet, but I think the border concentration camps (and yes, they do lest the literal definition of concentration camps) counts. Is it better that Australia throws the kids into those gulags with their mothers rather than separate them? I’m honestly not sure.

it's wrong to assume unlimited immigration to ''save'' ppl will make things ''better'' - it doesn't change the things & countries they are running from, the situations that have produced & keep on producing these ppl as asylum seekers & immigrants. it's a pacifier to a louder problem, redirecting the spotlight away from it to say that them arriving is the issue - not rly, it's them leaving that's the issue in need to be approached, solved & fixed in the 1st place. them leaving is the crisis.

I find it utterly disgusting that a man of SO MUCH privilege chooses to mock people seeking asylum. These are people coming from countries with war, famine, extreme poverty and extreme violence. Trump would never last in a situation like that, he could never come close to experiencing the painfully traumatic stress that comes with having to flee your home country and travel to an unfamiliar land filled with people who hate you. Well, I suppose america is filled with people who hate him, but he’s too much of a narcissist to realise it.

you missed one point thou, migrants, asylum seekers... when here long enough get the right to vote,... and they overwhelmingly vote democrat. so a republican administration that moves to expel them is actually trying to influence a voting. after all typically most immigrants stay in the south of texas which we can look at the demographics for voting and see they are overwhelmingly republican areas... if that helps.

I had a sociology teacher that didn't like the term "melting pot". That implies assimilation, which is true that America has a history and a current problem with. But she prefered "Chef Salad" so we can move away from assimilation and towards actual diversity, being different while also making the country better as a whole for having that diversity. Of course, a joke can be made that white people would be the blue cheese dressing of the salad, gross and completely unnecessary.

Also really important to mention the Asylum Transit Ban as a major change to US policy that has effectively ended asylum at the border. It is basically "a ban on asylum for any individuals who enter the United States at the “southern land border” after transiting through another country after leaving their home." (www.americanimmigrationcouncil.org/research/policies-affecting-asylum-seekers-border). That is, all Central and South American asylum seekers, as well as many African migrants making their way through Latin America to the US.

Common, if you don't like US asylum process feel free to seek asylum in any of the other 190+ countries. I don't get why we have like people from Peru or Africa seeking asylum in US. What, they spend years crossing though dozens of countries to come to US for asylum, could you not seek asylum in those dozens of countries that where before US? Feels like they many people seeking asylum in US are only trying to exploit the system to get in for free. That that can harm people who needs real asylum.

I mean, this whole episode is the perfect example of privilege. I mean, asking to be protected and being thrown into detention is perfectly normal if you miss two boxes on privilege bingo.

I know a person who works at an ice facility. They discussed a person who fleed their country came to America and has been trying for a year to get in contact with the Aunt that raised them. They recently were told that the day after they left their country she was killed when they came looking for this person. The person then had a psychological break and was sent to a mental health facility. The person I know then told me last week that the person was being deported back to their country because they couldn't present any evidence for asylum. I live in a garbage country. Don't come to America its not worth it.

@The Chri ich gebe dir Recht, es sind nur zwei Punkte die ich kritisiere, erstens ist es nicht wahr das es supereasy ist Asyl zubekommen. Und zweitens haben wir größere Probleme. Das hat was mir passiert ist gezeigt, nämlich das die Österreichische Regierung und der dazugehörige Sicherheitsapparat verdammt unfähig ist. Nichts desto weniger ist es nicht zu tolerieren das viele das System ausnutzen, links oder rechts, Inländer oder Ausländer. Da bin ich voll bei dir.

Aber ich hab natürlich auch keine Lust wie alle naiven Gutmenschen (damit meine ich meine Strohmänner und nicht dich) jedes mal wenn radikalisierte Religionsfanatiker menschen töten so zu tun als ob die bösen weißen Europäer dran eigentlich schuld sind und wir nur mehr Verständnis aufbringen müssen für andere Kulturen um den Karren noch rumzureißen.

​@The Chri Then another fact: We had at maximum 2 million imigrants in the last 10 years ( because the US started multiple wars in the near east, among other things). If you also count the illegeals we had about 5 million. These are just about 0.5 % of the European population? Do you really think they harm us? Or do we have maybe other problems, like tax cuts for the rich? Like in the US? I was about 20 meters away from the last terrorist attack here in Vienna. And I will not accept that we just blame 'the others' because of our problems. Sorry pal.
