She will call it "The Trading Places Act".
Not sure where I need to go...lol I wonder if Mexico would take me, Canada is too cold, and in Mexico I would live well. Actually I'm thinking of retiring in Costa Rica, I can live with that. Let the South come here and we will go South...

She's got to be a plant by the Trump administration to embarrass the democrats.
NO ONE is that stupid in real life!
I alternate between thinking that and thinking she's the scariest politician I have ever seen yet in my 50 years. I mean...a frightening number of people actually like her and applaud her ideas. The "Green New Deal" has sixty freakin cosponsors, after all. And we all know that if you just repeat something as the truth often enough, more people than not will eventually accept it...she could do some real damage. I don't know whether to laugh or kill myself now.

You can see similar things all around the world... the problem of the Australian Aborigines, for example, or the Ainu in Japan. Hawaii's another good example of this. Each of these groups of people want the same kinds of chance at education and wealth and political power as the Caucasians (who killed them, enslaved them, and took their land) have.
"But Caucasians did that to each other" I hear you retort. Yes, but there's no racial distinction... a British Celt could pass for a Roman (and did) in the right clothes. No matter how you dress them, most Hispanics can't pass for Norwegian. And the inequality is based on distinct physical markers that laws (the Jim Crow laws here in the US) say mean that they can't fully participate in society.

First of all, it's a misnomer to even call them Hispanics. Apart from a mix of Spanish and French (and others) blood introduced into the native population, they are simply Native Americans from the Southwest as well as further south of the border including Central America. Some of the invaders (illegals purposely crossing the border) are from even further south, but to say they all have a history of being in the current US lands is to deny that they are from different tribes with different histories from different areas. Many of them have no more history in their family's pasts of being in the Southwest than do Native Americans from East Coast tribes or Canadian tribes. They are not Apache or Navaho or Hopi or other US tribes that I am aware of. A tribe from Mexico as far as current borders had its own area of control.
