    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    LOL! It's all the same people - the staff of a federal agency doesn't change when the president changes.

    This sudden concern that Democrats claim for immigrants is incredibly clueless and transparently fake.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    Yeah, I've volunteered at an immigration clinic in Arizona for the last ~10 years, so I've seen the detention centers under Obama and I've seen them under Trump. They're all the same camps, except they're massively overcrowded and understaffed today compared to 5 years ago.

    Poor Obama and his accidental concentration camps. So tragic.

    That's exactly what happened when my girlfriend went to take a bath for the first time in our new condo years ago. Turned out, that little overflow below the faucet wasn't actually attached to anything, so water was dumping downstairs out of the light fixtures and coming out of AC vents.

    They weren't thrilled, but we worked it out.

    Okay that covers your brain, but what are you going to be doing with your boobs that whole time? Jiggling them by any chance?

    I will join her and the next time I need to go to Europe I'll dig a canoe or whatever.

    Still those are some lucky dudes that get to steer that ship home, rich kids and climate change notwithstanding.

    it's about sending a message.

    It's not about doing anything that actually matters, it's about empty, symbolic gestures on the internet,

    Oh my goodness, these child concentration camps are clearly worse than the child concentration camps employed by the previous administration, so, ya know, we've got a real child concentration camp guy on our hands here. How terrible.

    I live in fucking Wisconsin, but I care about this issue, so I find a way to make my way down to the border every few weeks and help.

    You live on the internet and talk shit like you're the only moral person in the world, even though you refuse to do anything that actually matters.

    Fuck off.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    Except that it’s not, given that “open borders” doesn’t have a universally understood meaning and that Democrats aren’t calling for anything that could be rightfully deemed it.

    Democrats are calling for a return to the status quo, where cheap labor and low prices are maintained, which means civil enforcement.

    Please spare me the fake concern and having to repeat myself?

    So what do you do? For the last ~10 years I've spent the month of December in Arizona helping my girlfriend's father process asylum claims so families can be reunited for the winter holidays.

    This year, I've been down there six times just in this summer alone. and I was recently admitted to the AZ circuit so I can appear in court.

    Again, what the fuck do you do? Fake concern indeed. I bet you don't do shit.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 0 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    Really? You think the "concentration camps" were less cruel under Obama. Okay.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    The ACTUAL Democratic position is to enforce the border exclusively via civil law and I'm asking you how you think that could possible work. You can't answer that question, because you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about in general.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 0 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    You call it a scare tactic, I call it an acknowledgement of reality. We've been exploiting illegals for decades while Democrats and Republicans alike have been squirming around the issue.

    You want that to continue, I want it to end; which of us is endorsing exploitation?

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    Oh, you have an article from CBS News, well then, we've obviously got it all figured out.

    The question is how you plan to enforce the border using only civil law, or how any of your favorite politicians plan to do that. You can't answer that question, because it's impossible, which is why this whole situation is so stupid.

    You might find it to be useful to know a bit about what you are talking about before providing such a snarky response.

    Holy shit, you might be the least self-aware person on the planet. Wow. I hope you're not an adult.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint -1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    Are we opponents now? Then play ball. Don't talk about my history, defend your comments. Make some sense out of your nonsense.

    What do you mean when you say a misdemeanor is treated as a civil issue? Let's start there.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    We don't need to spend decades cobbling together a economic bloc with our neighbor countries to somehow try to remain competitive in the world, we're all good, because we're the dominant economic force on the entire fucking planet.

    Too bad for Mexico and Canada, we don't need their help (FYI PR is already a US commonwealth, not a sovereign nation).

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint -1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    Everything you've said is nonsense and you obviously have no idea what you're talking about, which is why you're a Reddit expert, rather than a real expert.

    It's great. That's the only reason I'm really here, to watch people like you do your thing, it's just rare to see it so naked and obvious.

    FYI, sacrificing national borders to create a trading bloc is not libertarian, a misdemeanor is a criminal violation, it can't be charged civilly, a civil violation involves forfeitures, not fines, deportation for criminal violations depends on moral turpitude, not just a criminal violation, there's absolutely no legislation to provide some kind of easier road to citizenship or asylum before the current Congress, and so on and so forth.

    You don't know shit, but you're amusing, so thanks for that.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    We already have that, you just have to be poor to get it.

    The plan now is to make private insurance illegal and extend that Medicaid welfare-level insurance to everyone by taxing the fuck out of people who are already broke and have never had to pay any significant income taxes before.

    Everybody's going to love it!

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 2 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    It's not a scare tactic, it's what we were doing for 20+ years and it was really stupid and exploitative. Basically saying "Don't you dare come into this country" while winking and making that come here hand motion, because Americans love cheap labor and low prices.

    [–] Oh my what next? Respect for the fourth amendment. Legit_a_Mint 0 points ago in SelfAwarewolves

    The federal border crossing statute has a criminal component and a civil component, depending on the circumstances.

    The Obama (and Bush and Clinton) administration ignored sub (a) with respect to avoidance of examination or inspection and treated every border crossing like a mistake under sub (b), which is effectively no enforcement of the law, because obviously recent illegal immigrants have no permanent address, so there's no way to track them down if and when they fail to pay their forfeiture or appear for a court date to determine their eligibility to stay in the country.

    Trump is enforcing it primarily under sub (a) and not playing games like "Oh, you got all the way to Ohio and got yourself busted in a workplace sting before declaring yourself for amnesty? You must have misunderstood the rules."

    That's fair.
