Controlling the influx on the border without the fear and hysteria of the former administration is refreshing.

Bet all that money the former guy spent through his cronies on the wall came to no use, and Mexico didn’t pay!!!

US could not defeat the Afghan people in 20 years much less could with a whole horde of immigrants with a desire to survive, the United States is condemned to be the eternally false illusion of the poor immigrant..

Mexicans will continue to enter the US by any means, they will continue to "invade" the land that belonged to them 300 years ago.

Without them, the fragile US economy fell to the ground. Mexican immigrants are the ones who sustain this whole "Mexico 2.0."..

Third world !!..

More than 1.5 million immigrants have been detained since the start of the US fiscal year.

I admit it too that CNN has taken a radically different approach to the current administration than they did with the former.

It’s unrealistic to even think the former guy would do something in an orderly manner!

One could easily argue the same about the current guy and walk away a winner.

So much for the “Biden is for open boarders” BS .

Well it’s a good thing the VP “fixed” this. I see Biden closed off the airspace around these Haitians to keep news drones out.

The Racial angle brought to you by the same Know-nothings that thought Larry Elder was going to win and defended the “Very fine people on both sides” remark.

Wonderful analysis sir, I am glad you watch CNN and can update on what they are reporting, I only watch the gospel channel fox.

Yes you are right sir, the current guy is a winner, he beat the former guy with a record margin.

Sure. I can admit that the “migrants” are a vital component to the US economy; however, they compete directly with and box out working-class Americans—many of whom are minorities struggling for equity. This is another example of how US blacks get screwed by the democrats. Democrats also clamp down on black immigrants because they blow up the narrative that the US irredeemably racist and white supremacist. Black immigrants regularly go on to fill professional and white-color jobs in the US. The irony is, if we go by the statistics, the Haitian immigrants will probably be less of a public burden and will materialize the American dream more often than the usual migrant from the Spanish speaking countries. And Biden just kicked them out.

Sir, I cannot believe our former president would pass over deserving Americans over cheap labor from illegals.

Considering he has admitted to employing illegals at his resort, I am sure he had the best of motives. His benevolence is widely known all over the world!!!

Interesting, conservatives and republicans supporting an open border.

That's the talking point going around the right-wing echo chamber. Not the narrative going around the rest of the world.

The same people who are still bringing the "the 2020 election was fraudulent, so Trump should be made president" line.

Sadly, this administration can’t claim now that’s it’s colorblind. This administration lost that debate.

Which was never our problem to resolve in the first place.

the United States is condemned to be the eternally false illusion of the poor immigrant..

No, but you enter into any sovereign nation legally.

> Without them, the fragile US economy fell to the ground. Mexican immigrants are the ones who sustain this whole "Mexico 2.0."..

Thanks to the incompetency of this administration, true.

The Biden playbook:

Step 1: inherit a crisis from the ffg, with absolutely no plan of any kind.

Step 2: handle said crisis more or less efficiently.

Step 3: stand back as the cult of Cheeto-Jesus ignores the obvious logical inconsistencies and rails about (by this point I’ve stopped listening, so insert whatever whack-job bs claim you’d like. Nothing is too loonie for these deluded idiots.)

Step 4: repeat (because no former POTUS was as content to watch the country burn since James Buchanan in 1860. There will ALWAYS be a next time.)

America keeps banking on Democratic presidents come in and fix the complete and utter messes the Republican presidents leave the country in each time. One of these election cycles, the Republicans will win, and not only will the previous mess not be cleaned up, they'll just keep adding to it, until the country rots.

Why doesn't Japan or China or Brazil or Russia or South Africa or Israel or France or Australia or New Zealand or Germany or Italy or Colombia or Argentina or Mexico take these people in?

Lots of American are catching hell,i see it on a daily basis, we could easily absorbed these people in the US, if you not fluent in English and Spanish, you will have hard time in America, most Spanish speaking people, would feel right at home in Texas, and could fake being in America illegally

“In Haiti, there is no security,” said Fabricio Jean, a 38-year-old Haitian who arrived in Texas with his wife and two daughters. “The country is in a political crisis.”

Texas ain’t much better.

Which debate dear sir?

Do you mean the last administration was busing the migrants straight to Mar a lago? Is that competence?

What a refreshing thought!

One of the significant problems of integrating migrants en mass is that most do not want to integrate. Once a critical threshold has passed, they seek to recreate the ways of the old country- irony of ironies, the one they sought to escape.

The problem is entrenched and does not lend itself to compartmentalisation.

Why does the Biden-Harris administration discriminate against Haitians like this??

Is there any issue that the right feel strongly enough about that they won't flip the second it benefits them politically?

Lmao! It’s funny how “conservative” talking points rarely change no matter how often they are demonstrated utterly incorrect.

I know it was a rhetorical question, but the answer is no. Whether it’s trusting polls or the FBI, Theo not thing consistent for conservatives is their inconsistency. Also known as hypocrisy.

Always playing the race card. Harris is biracial, not to mention the other BIPOCs in Biden’s administration. This means, by your logic, that Biden can’t be racist. (As a reminder, you incessantly trotted out Ben Carson and Jared Kushner as evidence that 45 wasn’t racist.)

I am not. I am against racial discrimination from Biden deciding who can stay. Is everyone being sent back or just Haitians?

America needs a political revolution or America as we know it will be over.

America as you know it was always going to be over, it’s called change. Happens a lot, ask the Karankawa.

So you are against racial discrimination towards non Americans but when it comes to Americans you are fine with it.

Is there a name for such an approach??

America needs a political revolution or America as we know it will be over.

If you mean a revolution for turning America into a dictatorship, it was tried on Jan 6th.

And in case you didn’t hear about it, it failed miserably. They are rounding up the traitors and sending them away!!!

Who said I’m fine with any racism at all? I am obviously not.

the usual suspects trying to deflect from the racist and discriminatory policy of Biden to only remove Haitians sure are struggling today.

We need to take our country back, protect our way of life, make our country great again, rise up and fight, your children will be next etc etc.

The same rhetoric used to hoodwink the weak minded throughout history.

So is the new right wing slogan, keep out the Latin Americans, bring in the Haitians ?

I have a feeling it is discriminatory!!!

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

The open border policy is for one thing and one thing only. Future potential votes! Cubans and Haitians have a tendency to vote conservative. You can deduce from that info. You can’t run a campaign on weak policies, so they play the race card incessantly to make one hate the other so much that you won’t vote for them even when common sense and facts say otherwise. All these new immigrants, once they’ve been “processed” they are shipping them into conservative states and cities. What’s that all about? BTW without any concern for COVID or other diseases. This admin. is not ideal, to say it nicely. You are more screened and scrutinized when you come in legally and try to get your green card. Facts from my Japanese wife. The interviews, the money paid, medical examinations, forced inoculations, treated like second class citizens at the immigration offices, etc.

No Haitians should be sent back to a country where the President was assassinated in July and a devastating earthquake last month.

dems have so many reasons that they don’t deport people back to the other countries.,

where is the empathy for Haiti?

thinking the same thing, seems like Biden is better at border security than Trump ever was and he didnt need a $20billion wall to do it
