Listen, when Republicans say “secure the border” what they’re really saying is “CLOSE the *southern* border”…as in 100% Completely. Seal. It. Off…to all the black and brown bodies
Please understand: they won’t be satisfied with anything less than that
No. No. No. They mean secure the border from illegal immigration. Not from black people or brown people or purple people or yellow or green. They mean make sure anyone coming through should legally be there. Not anyone banned from US territories, not anyone with drugs (though that is getting out of hand), not anyone with highly infectious diseases, or invasive species, or anything else that would be destructive. If you’re going to diss on Republicans, at least tell the truth. Lord knows there is a LOT of material.
You are 400% full of shit
So…human beings coming across the sOuThErN bOaRdEr are the ooonly ones with “infectious diseases” and “invasive species” and “destructive”???
Do I have that right?
Ok then…PLEASE do explain to me why BIRD FLU didn’t come to America via the dreaded southern boarder? That’s an “infectious disease” isn’t it?
OR could it be you didn’t bother to list any CONCRETE EXAMPLES to back up any of the utter bs you’re trying to sell because you don’t actually have any, you xenophobic piece of shit
And does it really matter if those starving little CHILDREN are bringing any diseases with them? They aren’t, but s2g I almost wish they were —I got all my vaccination shots up to date, but maybe some “infectious disease” would thin out some of those AMERICAN anti-vaxers who like exposing other people to their unvaccinated children’s diseases. Yeah, outbreaks of ~*completely preventable*~ diseases like whooping cough and measles didn’t come across the dreaded southern border…those came from right here in the U.S. of A. by willfully ignorant AMERICANS who refuse to vaccinate even their own children
SN: Guatemalan and South American children are far more likely to be completely vaccinated than children in Texas. In fact, measles outbreaks have resurged in some American cities. By contrast, according to the World Health Organization, neither Guatemala nor Honduras has had a reported case of measles since 1990
Blaming “infectious diseases” on immigrants and their children is a very old and a very racist trope. Try again, bigot
Moving on…what “invasive species” are you talking about? Specifically? Let me rephrase that —did you seriously mean to imply that after crossing a desert and nearly dying of heatstroke, starvation, thirst and dehydration, these little 8yr old KIDS somehow managed to keep a prohibited potted plant alive during their ordeal??? Does that sound completely absurd to you? Because if it doesn’t, it really should
And as far as drugs getting out of hand..? That’s a DEMAND driven business. As in *American* demand. But trust me, I really don’t think the child refugees and asylum seekers —who are literally seeking out uniformed border patrol agents to turn themselves in to when they finally make it here— I don’t think that they’re carrying drugs on them since that might put a kink in their asylum plans, so that’s another part of your bs “argument” shot down
And as far as “destructive”…I’ll remind you that none of the 9/11 hijackers crossed the southern border…they all lightened their skin & hair specifically because they *knew* simple minded racist assholes just like YOU would be busy perpetually staring at the southern border. Not even from this country, but they were fully aware of the depths of your “soft” racism and bigotry, and knew exactly how to use it against simps like you
And funny how we never seem to have these discussions about disease, invasive plants and drugs when WHITE Serbians, Russians or Cubans flee to America. 😒 Literally the *only* thing that magically makes people crossing the *southern* border more “infectious” or diseased than anyone else is your ignorance and racism. That’s all
FACT: The US/Mexico border is more secure today than it’s ever been at any point in American history, and anyone—ANYONE—willing to risk crossing a desert, sex trafficking, murder, enslavement, rape, torture, imprisonment and more…anyone who risks all of THAT deserves a fair shot at asylum and U.S. citizenship
They certainly couldn’t be any worse of a citizen than you appear to be
