Only a few months ago the party line on ATS was "Noone wants open borders. Stop lying about Democrats!". Now, it's part of the new party platform.

I think the GOP if it had two collective brain cells, they would drop the immigration argument from "safety/security" aspects ( while true) and move on to continuously hammer home how illegal immigration is overwhelming our health care system and public education, is burdening our social programs and "safety nets", and is stealing jobs disproportionately from minority communities and suppressing wages. This is an easy argument to win when you start talking numbers.

Don't try to sell us pendejos like O'Rourke because you think Hispanic people (like all minorities) are pets to be kept dependent so that you keep a hold of the power you so desperately need.


Sorry man, it's the Hispanic folks turn. Everyone gets a turn at the D table for their scraps and photograph.


Not this guy.

I'm proud of my heritage, but I am an American by choice. I'm tired of being sold a generic representation of a monolithic Hispanic culture by liberals.

Hispanic people are generally conservative. Hispanic immigrants are conservative. Illegals and those who benefit from illegals being here are liberals.

Hispanic people are deeply religious, tend to view the world in a practical way, and in many cases are traditionalists.

But that isnt all Hispanic people. Some are socialists and power hungry authoritarians. Some are criminals or simply uneducated. Those people either CAUSE problems like they do in Venezuela, or they come here to be a problem.

That's Nancy Pelosi's voting bloc.

It's a rhetoric actually.

In context:

O'Rourke said fencing has forced migrants to the most inhospitable areas of the southern border, "ensuring their suffering and death.” More than 4,000 migrants have died as a result, O'Rourke said. "They’re dead, over the last 10 years, as we have walled off their opportunity to legally petition for asylum to cross in urban centers, like El Paso," O'Rourke said. "To be with family. To work jobs. To do what any human being should have a right to be able to do."


He wants a better route to those people.



During an interview in his hometown on Thursday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked O'Rourke: "If you could, would you take the wall down here -- knock it down?"



"Yes, absolutely," answered O'Rourke, who is widely thought to be a potential candidate in 2020 but has not formally announced his intention to run. "I'd take the wall down."

Interesting that you chose to ignore the quotes I posted providing the context.

I wonder why? No, don't tell me. I know why.

Interesting that Fox News failed to mention that.

Not really that surprising. Fox supports the Republican agenda (which is sometimes but not always the Trump agenda). The rest of the MSM supports the Democrat agenda (which is always the anti-Trump agenda).

Once you realize that, it gets easier to find out the truth.

You mean you don't like being told how to vote based upon your heritage and what they think your heritage consist of?

:rolll:


See, like all smaller parts of the whole, you're not supposed to be able to see past things like this. It's just another fracture in the facade.

So if republicans say they are against sex with goats, does that mean this moron will have sex with goats in protest?

The leftists are severely embarrassing themselves via anti-American antics. And in SEVERE self-destruct mode to the point of no return.
