Refugees. Are we going to shoot them at the border?



Why?
Mexico will take them.
Surely Mexico has the same immigration policy as they expect the United States to have.
Only seems fair.

So you don't agree with rightists that the Mexicans are pouring over the border? Why wouldn't they bring more with them?

How is anybody supposed to have dialog when you will not even clarify what you're talking about?

What about refugees?

Ok I'll play . If these sanctions make food shortages worse, humans will start moving where the food and safety is. Like the ME refugees crossing seas.

Yes, that is a highly possible outcome.
Assuming their military will allow them to leave.

But as I understand the situation. They are already killing zoo animals for food so I don't know if sanctions will make it worse.

Thats my question, are we prepared to shoot them at the border. After they eat all the zoo animals of course.

Are we shooting people crossing the border now?
Their army might on the way out.

Yeah,I don't know what to make of this either.We have too many problems at home to deal with.The Venezuelan people will have to do this on their own.This is a perfect situation for the U.N. to step in,but they are spineless.

All the UN does is cash checks to pay for baby blue hats.

You might be interested to know a bizaare fact about Venezuela.

It is, for all practical intents and purposes entirely operated by Cuba. Cuba's Generals head up the military; all the top government official heads of departments are Cuban; the doctors are Cuban; the hospitals are run by Cubans. Its essentially a Colony of Cuba. Read that in the WSJ.

Interesting. Cuba tied up total control of Venezueala for the oil!

To be honest...

His suggestions and policies are poor. I'm a secondary education (high-school) Englishman and I can think of better replacements and policies.

To stay on topic, Venezuela is suffering bad. Instead of punishing the government maybe it would be smarter, kinder and more humane to offer aid.

Civilian aid, not that usual subversive take over your country kind of aid.

Yeah because they've done nothing in combating disease, poverty or starvation.

You will have to ask the border patrol that. They carry weapons. I'm wondering what the plan is for Venezuela refugees.

With the budget they have I would say that we would have better luck burning the cash to keep warm.

Since when does the government have a plan?
They start all kinds of actions and never seem to have a long term strategy. I doubt this will be any different.
