Temporary Protected Status....

That is incorrect. Almost all the countries in the Americas, and some in other continents, have birthright citizenship.

So, they were here temporarily since 2001, knowing that time would run out. And with that in mind, Trump says that they have until 2019--another full year, at least--to return to their country.

Hell, I see no problem with this, nor do I see a controversial spin that people can place on this, unless they want to jettison all logic and just lump it in with the narrative that he hates immigrants, which doing so would negate the validity of their argument anyhow.

Dude, it will have been 18 years by the time they must be gone.

They were granted TPS BEFORE 9/11 HAPPENED.

Let that sink in...

Is 9/11 some benchmark for something that happened “way back when” now?

most country's just dont know how poor of shape the US is in 330 million people and 3 million poor ones are what will bring the country down .
really its kind of sad being in a country that close to the edge of failing .
Lets not forget the crime out of the 5 million incarcerated here 10,000 are illegals DOOMED i tell you .


10,000 only? Bull!

Besides, the states with the most illegals incarcerated won't tell us which are illegal.


Like California, where LEOs are forbidden to even ask, let alone report it in a journal or survey?

Yes, if you consider that people who were born within about 3 months of that event will be able to vote this year.

Also meaning that people who were in the military at the time of the event (like I was) could have children who will be fighting in wars related to the aftermath of that event. Hell, they could even be serving side-by-side.

So, yeah, it's worth noting that as a benchmark. To be honest, I'm uncertain as to how that idea escapes anyone.

Not really a huge event. It’s just “huge” to American culture, I guess. I really could care less about that day. 17 years is not exactly a long time in the scheme of things.

WW2 was a huge event. Millions upon millions lost their lives. America killed close to 100,000 innocent people bombing Tokyo alone. But I guess we can sweep that under the rug.

Even that wasn’t a “long time ago”

I don’t even think that 9/11 is even relevant to the topic of removing refugees it had no purpose to be brought up. It’s like saying the sky is blue so we should all eat clam chowder. Are they terrorists or something?

Do you believe that we wouldn’t have accepted the refugees if it were after 9/11?

How many other non-citizens are living in the U.S. due to past compassionate acts by our government?

Not really it has happened before. I personally know Guatemalans who had to go home after the civil war ended with the signing of the peace plan, that was under Clinton.

Guess they just didn't want to make a big deal out of it.

Canada is a capitalist country with a few tacked on socialist policies like a decent medicare system.

Keep telling lies though, your right-wing circle jerk friends will applaud you.

The number seems to be around 75K a year since the 80's so maybe 3 million accepted but who knows how many are not citizens but there are 13.3 million legal residents who are also not citizens so it would be a small number, relatively speaking.

You have that bass-ackwards
Canada is a socialist country with a few (getting fewer) capitalist amenities thrown in to pacify the population into ignorance.
