I must be behind the trends.

I know of the "camel" slurs for Middle Easterners, the "ape/monkey" slurs for blacks, the "frog" slurs for the French - who are the dogs?
As your examples illustrates, various animals are often used as slurs. Trump even got into trouble for using the term "animals" to refer to certain foreigners. Your point is taken, though. I should have referred to the use of "dog" as simply a "slur" rather than as "racist."

Even the Nazis did that with the Jews until they gassed them.

Explain it. Clearly, you think it's OK to take kids from their families. I can't even believe I'm having to talk about this in 2018.

Tell me, why do you think this is OK? And don't say, "Well, they should have thought of this before they came"

If it were you in this situation, would you not want help? This is what the USA is supposed to be about. Helping people who need it. Is it because they're brown folks? Is that what gets your goat?

Because I have hard time believing you'd be as upset if these people were coming from Scandinavia or Europe.

So why are they separated?

You tell me. You're the one in favor of it. Tell me what you're afraid of. What is it that freaks you out about people seeking asylum and wanting a better life?

Are you afraid you might have to compete with people smarter than you?

I may have made a mistake. So what are your views on immigration, so I can be fair?

My family came from Germany and eastern Europe before WW2 and sought refuge here. That's why I love this country.

It was amazing. But now, we seek to deny refuge to people fleeing oppression? We put them in cages? This is not the USA I love. And it not the USA I believe in. It is not the USA my family fled to.

I do not believe that the welfare state and unbridled immigration can coexist. Remove the entitlement programs and i could care lese as long as they are subject to the same laws as natural citizens. As for refugees i think it is a farce. If people wish to come here they should get in line, get vetted and demonstrate that they will add value to our society. These economic refugees are not good for the nation. The money would be better spent setting them up in their own cornors of the world.

You don't get out much, do you? Lots of people who come here, my family included, do a lot to contribute. Maybe you've heard of it:

KOHLER: Kitchen & Bath, Decorative Products, Engines & Generators, Golf & Resort

You don't know what immigrants are going to do. You just make assumptions. The fact is, this country was built on immigrants. It's our bread and butter.

I for one welcome anyone who wants to come to this country to make their lives better. That is what we represent, freedom. If you can't compete, well, that's on you.
Thanks from Clara007
