There it is again!  

 

Why is it that liberals never seem to see people as people but insist in seeing the color if their skin?

Speaking of "blackmail" ................ is it OK for trump to blackmail Congress by saying he will shut down the government if money isn't given to him to build his wall?  

 

By the way, a 'wall' would not change things that are happening right now with these immigrants.

 

This seems to be another  'LOOK OVER HERE'  topic.


Only your post is such another 'look over here' attempt.  First attempting to change the topic to Trump which isn't what the topic is about but of course among liberals, they are obsessed with him no end. Oh, I see, conservatives and so-called independents can bring up Hillary and Obama in topics not about them, but heaven forbid if anyone mentions trump. And they are not just immigrants, but illegal immigrants. They are not "illegal" until they enter the country illegally, you are being disingenuous,. Calling them just immigrants is a slap in the face of those who came here legally. Calling them immigrants is accurate, unless they enter the country illegally. Calling them illegal when they aren't is a "slap in the face".

 

But so we can take it that they are coming here for monetary reasons, not for valid reasons covered by amnesty?  They can come to our border and enter legally any way they choose, it doesn't have to be amnesty. That's what we have been saying, they are coming here for the money, So what?  Many have, if not most. not necessarily because they are being persecuted. Being persecuted is not a requirement for a person to immigrate to the United States. And of course the way these migrants are attempting to use monetary, is to blackmail the United States. trump would call it "negotiating" if he were doing it.

For those on the right, this is called sarcasm and is designed to show that anybody can make a stupid demand.  The real test of intellegence is whether you react to it. 


So what does this say about the poster making such a post?  Nothing to even halfway having to do with the original post.

Funny, but I didn't say a word about FOX, so why do you? As far as my mentioning trump ........ he is the president, the one wanting the wall, so why can't he use his "art of the deal"?



Nothing was mentioned about "the wall" either.  But no doubt you are attempting to make this about either or both.  Is there a reason you want to take this off topic instead of addressing that these migrants are attempting to blackmail our country?

 

Wouldn't you think that their asking for $50,000 to go home indicates they are wanting to come here more for monetary reasons rather than any other reason?

That's a truly fascinating conjecture...

 

Wonder what the real reason is...

The migrants are using Trump’s ‘negotiating’ tactics - make a ridiculous demand and hope the other side caves.


No, just shows how conceited they are...attempting ridiculous blackmail against a country like the United States. 

 

I would hope that the immigration people can be aware of those in these groups and laugh in their face when they ask for amnesty.

 

And another inserting Trump into the discussion...


Trump caused the problem so if you want to fix the problem Trump is part of the discussion. Now that might change soon if he is in orange.
