It does not matter if I agree that some are rapists, some are drug smugglers and some are good people.

These are alll well-proven facts.

Do you dispute these facts?

Is Mexico sending people, eg: Mariel boatlift? No. People are leaving for what they see as a better life. The whole Mexico is sending is a misconception.

I don't think Trump working with great syntax.

This episode is minor, to me, in the whole election situation.

Im not sure what Donald said, or why....i don't care for the man. But i can say this with 100% certainty: Mexico drops people off on our side of the border with great frequency. Among these people are mental patients and prisoners that some officials somewhere decided they didn't want to mess with.

I worked in a state mental hospital for a number of years, and saw countless Mexican nationals that somehow ended up wandering around south El Paso and Del Rio. I also live in a town with 5 prisons, 3 of which are private run federal prisons. WHen the fed removes outsourcing from its prison policy, 90% of the inmates in those 3 prisons are simply going to be deported.

Say what you want about the comment....but it has some basis in truth. Not that all people in Mexico are rapists, etc. LOL, anyone stating that would be an idiot. But the folks that get "dropped off" over here

The Mexican government is openly enabling and encouraging their citizens to illegaly violate US immigration laws, at the very least.

The government even published a guidebook on how to break US laws and get away with it.





Mexican Manual for Illegal Migrants Upsets Some in U.S.

MEXICO CITY, Jan. 5 - The Mexican government drew fire from American advocates of tighter borders on Wednesday for publishing a pamphlet that instructs migrants how to safely enter the United States illegally and live there without being detected.

In Context it seems to be 3 "they're" - they are. Not 2 "they're" and one "their".


Trump has a "stream of consciousness" meandering way of speaking.

He started of with the subject being "not sending THEIR best people...then he veers off and returns...their rapists.

If he inteded to follow the syntax of the "they're bringing crime. ..they're bringing drugs" part he would have said "they're raping."



Here's the transcript excerpt from the YouTube video you posted.


0:00when Mexico sends people they're not sending their best they're not sending
0:06you they're not sending you there sending people that have lots of
0:12problems and they're bringing those problems with us they're bringing drugs
0:17they're bringing crime they're rapists and some I assume are good people

the kicker about "the mexican government" is that its a fairly loose affiliation of people in power in various levels, with the cartels (aka, "The mexican military") playing its role at the top (power follows money, afterall).

So 'the mexican government" helping people to enter our country illegally happens in many ways, under the whim of many people. From the federal policies that push people closer to the border so that border hopping becomes more common, to judicial policies that end up seeing people being essentially deported as pains in the ass, to local politicians and officials in border towns running their own games.

The problem happens at just about every level of governance.

Yep. That transcript os wrong and biased. No surprise.

Who needs a transcrip when you can watch and listen for yourself?

I even provided a video clip.

That doesn't make sense.

..they're bringing those problems with us, they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, their rapists and some I assume are good people

It's they are, they are, to put a possessive "their" in there is just incorrect grammar. It doesn't make sense, and it doesn't help your cause one bit. It's just as inflammatory either way. And, to suggest that their rapist don't rape in the US is absurd.

They're rapists - did rape, entering the US
Their rapists - Mexico's rapists - did rape - entering the US

I don't see much difference. Both make the same point.

The Mexican thing is a great example of the left and their media repeating a lie so often that it becomes the reality. What actually happened is that Trump said that some of the illegal people coming from Mexico are rapists and bad people. At no point did he talk about all Mexicans and at no point did he talk about all illegals.

I would venture the pro Trump people would take it as ALL before the more liberal. After all, Trump is the one pushing the issue.

edit:

I do see the point of media inflaming the issue, but I think both sides play the game. Never listen to only one side.

I see nothing in that transcript that is not 100% true: Mexico is not exporting their best/brightest to the US.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”


Exactly where is the word "illegal" in that statement?

"Senator, you've whipped out that little Mexican thing again......."

The worst thing they can attack Trump is:

"omg he is soooo mean the way he talks!! OMG I just want to cry all the time because of how harmful his words are!! OMG they pierce my soul like a thousand knives!! Oh and maybe he utilized tax laws to his adantage the same way HRC herself has done, but its only bad if Trump did it, OMG!!!!! I would rather be led by a war monger who has openly threatened the largest nation on Earth, contributed directly to the destruction of at least 3 societies, has a longer trail of dead bodies than many mafia families, laughs at the death of a world leader whos prospering society has been completely destroyed thanks in part to her help, is taking money from woman hating, gay killing Saudi royal family, and even contemplated assassinating the citizen of a neutral state!!! Because I mean with Trump, you know MEXICANS, and FAT PEOPLE! I mean that is sooo much worse!!!!"

Give me a #ing break!

Hopefully Hillary is upright and her ear piece is working....

I would hate to hear her unfiltered opinions not fed to her by her underlings...

Yep, this is exactly what a president should look like...

I don't see how that question is relevant. Unless I missed something in that snippet you posted, it seems that what he said supports what I have witnessed (see my prior post....i've seen it in both mental health and prisons).

FWIW: we are "Mexican Americans". Well....not me so much. But the rest of the family here is.
