What is it with the left that keeps at this line that the Trump administration supports Nazis and Nazi causes? If that were true, why are so many illegal immigrants still risking life and limb to break into such an oppressive regime? If the left knew their history, the Jews and other untermenschen went out of their way to escape persecution. They weren’t making a b-line to seek out the SS or the Einsatzgruppen to seek salvation.
One can be sure if the left ever visited a proper concentration camp (CM has been to Auschwitz I, Birkenau (Auschwitz II), Treblinka, Sobibor, Majdanek, Dachau and Sachsenhausen) they could never draw such a conclusion. These places are gruesome reminders of institutional murder. CBP camps are nothing by comparison and any attempts to make an equivalence is downright insulting.
That didn’t stop 29yo Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling detainment centres on the border “concentration camps.” Given most of those making the journey are connected via smart phones, they aren’t making the journey blindly. They assume all the well known risks of using traffickers – sexual assault and kidnapping included.
Make all the arguments for visa overstays being the bulk of illegal immigration claims but people need only open their minds to the truth that the racist, hateful and fascist US is still preferable to their homeland. Otherwise why overstay? No logic staying where one is not wanted. The idea is to flee oppression, not swarm around a fascist honeypot.
Remember when Trump said he’d ship illegals to sanctuary cities when Democrats held their resolve over funding border security? Why weren’tsanctuary cities, all publicly open arms about accepting illegals, balking at receiving busloads of them? The great irony is that a growing number of illegal immigrants are choosing to move OUT of sanctuary cities. In 2007, 7.7mn (63.1%) lived in the 20 largest sanctuary metros to 6.5mn (60.7%) in 2016 according to Pew. During that time 1.5m illegal immigrants were deported (12.2mn ->10.7mn).
Is that why Democrat presidential candidates were on stage raising their hand in support of providing free healthcare to illegal immigrants? Not even being a liberal led sanctuary city seems enough these days to convince illegals to stay. The out of control feces crisis in San Francisco is enough for anyone to question living in a sanctuary city, illegal or not. Is that what “free mobility” in a totalitarian society looks like?
How much harder left can these candidates turn? Even Bernie Sanders is looking positively centrist…Joe Biden looks like an unhinged right wing nut job vs the likes of Harris, Booker and Warren. “Comprendes, amigo?
Now AOC is on record screaming on Twitter with,
“I just left the 1st CBP facility. I see why the CBP officers were being so physically & sexually threatening towards me. Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets…This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress.”
Reports are coming that AOC hurled abuse at the CBP officers. Undoubtedly there will be CCTV footage to confirm or deny these allegations.
No one is arguing that conditions are ideal. They are not supposed to be. It doesn’t condone any human rights violations but at the same time, in many cases the result is self-imposed. Honduras and Mexico are democracies not in a state of war, civil or otherwise. These people are fleeing for better lives, not for their lives. It is a big distinction and the US taxpayer is not obliged to sponsor anyone who thinks open borders are a right. If illegal immigrants didn’t try to cross the border illegally it is likely they wouldn’t be in a camp, much less locked in a cell.
Ana Garcia Carias, wife of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, said, “Stay in the country and let’s look for solutions to support you.” She visited the US border and said that she didn’t recommend her citizens go to the US undocumented. Smart woman.
CM has no qualms helping those in genuine need of asylum. CM has a problem with those that conflate issues and use comparisons to Nazism as a reason to shame others into accepting their dogma of economic refugees. Feel free to decide for yourself when looking at the data published by ICE. No wonder feelings matter more than facts.
With all the free stuff thrown at potential voters by the Democrat nominees don’t expect facts to matter. After all if Americans who didn’t go to college have to pay off the debts of those that did, perhaps we should ask the homeless to pay for those who took out mortgages.
