Statue of Liberty Inscription
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.
But.. We're not stopping Haitians from living in the US. Just those that have not applied or gained US citizenship.

So you think the state in which I live is a sh*thole and/or should be mocked and made the butt of a joke thread to score some political points?
And you are better than Trump, how?
Again, trump was arguing against using country of origin, as it has been reported he made his comments when discussing putting Haiti and el Salvador into the lottery system was brought up.
You are for country of origin as a critieria, trump wants merit.
You defend the current immigration plan, which as you know takes in far more people from countries that are not majoritarialy white than ones that are. II does that by using the lottery system, chain migration, favoring countries that are in bad situations, etc.
I Want Only The Best People
I bicycled into the city . I was making a lovely vegan salad with gluten free croutons and braised tofu strips and I needed some fair trade endive.
In disgust, having left my mother's basement
He was shaking his fist,
I reached the gates of my neighborhood.
He exuded toxic masculinity.
He beamed Then he raised:
"Hey, you. Are you sure you're in the right place?"
I did in fact belong there. Became angry!
I could tell by his reaction that he was probably a racist but then something happened that confirmed my suspicions. He called his supervisor, Roy, who I already suspected of being a Russian agent. Little did I know he had been violated
It would have been a complete waste.
I considered yanking his head, but I had been away from Twitter for too long already and I couldn't be bothered a little.
I just can't today
I sit here bitter, nearly in tears from my frustrations

So show me where trump said no one from a place like Haiti would be allowed in?
Show me where he said they were terrible as opposed to their country.
"Haiti? Why do we want people from Haiti here?"
'Why do we want these people from all these #hole countries here? We should have more people from places like Norway."
*people from Haiti* *people from all these #hole countries*
I assume you also think that civil rights leaders fighting to improve inner cities saying they are in third world conditions are also racist that are saying all the people in those cities are terrible.
No, and this is the distinction you're missing. Civil rights leaders wouldn't say that coming from an economically depressed, high-crime inner city neighborhood makes people less worthy. There's a difference between saying that a place is a #hole and saying that we should judge the worthiness of people based on whether or not they come from a #hole.
