When such facilities are created and the illegals are placed in them - what would you like to call them?

 

When Hitler and the Nazis put people in concentration camps they called it social justice.

 

Would you like to call them social justice camps?

Our country’s morals are going back to where they once were. With Japanese internment camps and American Indian boarding schools.  Anything to whiten America. 


Typically here is the effort to make a legal issue a racial one just to keep the pot boiling. Whether it is caused by the "Resistance" or the Russian plot to cause division within our population is hard to tell - sometimes it is hard to tell them apart.

 

Bottom line, since we are talking about illegal entry into our nation - "illegal" is not a race.

There is no comparison.  Those were forced removal of Americans; the present situation is an attempt at housing illegal children whose parents exposed them to dangerous conditions to slip into the country. 

 

They are being sheltered and fed as best can be done under the circumstances.

 

If the parents had followed immigration law and requested amnesty at the border crossing they would have been released while a determination was made.  Now Democratic bots are using this for political purposes to pull at the heartstrings of the public.

So what is the need for the saparation of these children from their parents?


So what should these necessary facilities be called (try to concentrate).


That is the problem   that is why a name is unnecessary, because they should not exist. If a detention place is necessarry to house these illegal immigrants, they should stay together. and processed together. there is no need for the separation. and that is the issue.


Now about the thousands of unaccompanied kids - they have to be someplace. Some insist on calling it a "concentration camp" - what do you prefer?

The topic has to do with illegal immigrants. So which is racial - "illegal" or immigrant"?

 

LOL  LOL  LOL  Rk what does racism has to do with the post. ? I believe that the post was only referring to the children that have been separated from their parents. As usual trying to confuse the issue.


Read the first line and try again.

 

BTW - what is funny about racism?
