Caravan's plea for buses is DENIED: Migrants must walk the remaining 900 miles to nearest US border as Mexico ignores demand for transport
might as well post the response.

Every leftist reading this most definitely supports the providing of transportation to these people.
I think it’s an iq thing.

"This is stupid"
What exactly? That I am pointing out a line of thinking that is logical and maybe true? The next few days will be interesting. If I am wrong then nobody will show up to help. If I am correct, thousands will be ferried to the American borders just in time to raise chaos before the midterms.
Which is fine as long as they legally appeal for refugee status.
"These guys are refugees and they have already walked more than most Americans will walk in a year."
Irrelevant and biased line of attack. What does how far the average American walk have to do with anything?
Not a clue what that means. It's very real.
But I enjoy the disinformation tactic. If you can't attack the facts... attack the person.
"You don't have to let them in but you need to stop acting like they are armed insurgents. "
I never stated or even inferred that they are armed insurgents. You made this up completely.
Appreciate the comments.

Actually from what I've read Trump is doing a pretty admirable job at fulfilling a lot of what he has promised to his voters, you know, the reason he was voted President - and likely the reason he'll be voted for a second term come 2020.
Do you even live in the USA or just another foreign "armchair politician" who *think* they know better?

HA! You are not even American.
And you just straight jump to I hate Trump.
It would not matter to me during which administration this happens. I am American and will support a Sitting president just because they hold the office.
Besides anyone with a brain knew this president has one awesome thing he does.
Revamping Nafta was awesome (but you are not someone that lives here and wouldn't know)
Pulling out of a one sided treaty / deal whatever with Iran was smart. I mean who gives the enemy billions in cash before they even meet any of the "deals" objectives.
Addressing the issue that China has been screwing with the US for a very long time.
The list goes on and on....
And besides those points, back to the thread.
Will you as a person have to live with and deal with "Refugees" as you say it. In your town, in your local governmental systems?
They get free health care, free food, Free education, in many cases free housing and of course do not pay federal taxes (which are the lions share).
I've never got any of those things free.
And gee what would happen to me if I just decided to move to whatever PM gov you have? Would I be welcome with open arms and receive all these free benefits? What if I brought 10,000 of my buddies? "I claim refugee status! I cant get a job! There are gangs down at the jiffe lube!"
