Roughly 10,000 mostly Haitian migrants were crowded under a border bridge in South Texas awaiting processing Thursday, prompting U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to announce it was sending additional agents to address the massive influx.

because processing is not fast and efficient, just like Republicans want it.

#1 - as all Americans who respect our borders should want it. Don't denigrate non-Republicans like that.

Haitian migrants? Oh wow and we thought Texans hated immigrants before now.

#3 - only illegal ones. I don't think many have a problem with legal immigrants.

" only illegal ones. I don't think many have a problem with legal immigrants."

So just overly complicate the process and make it almost impossible to gain legal immmigration status so that then you can pretend to welcome immigrants when, in acutality, they don't want them coming into the United States even though they are actually Native Americans whose ancestors were here long before white folks.

When people here want to complain about how screwed up our country has become... they should considered how bad things must be out there for people to migrate, sometimes by walking a 1000 miles with kids , just for a chance at a life here.

But we have to wear a mask at 7-11... oh, what tyranny we live under... must need a revolution

You don't have to wear one in 7/11 in Florida.

Why did Texas even let them in? Apparently they don't do a very good job of defending the border at the border in Texas.

Was it because they couldn't get into California? Seems to me that would have been the wiser path to take to get into America.

I wouldn't even go THRU Texas on my way to somewhere else.

And I am an American.

Even Chuck Dodd on Meet the Press who has annoyed me more than once with his apparent anti-Trump stance is coming out against Biden on the immigration issue.

Even Todd is saying regardless that it's been a long time coming, what is happening now is Biden's own doing.

He's created a magnet for attracting people trying to enter the US illegally.

Awaiting processing under a bridge.....

Sounds like an invasion to me.

"He's created a magnet for attracting people"

And what of the willing hirers of these folks? How much responsibility to you place on the root of the problem?

They are Haitians. They are here because they see a chance, after all these years, to immigrate to the United States. They see that opportunity because of the Haitian earthquake, Mose's assassination, and because rumors spread (intentionally to exploit and out of hope) that now is the time to come because of a relaxation on immigration since Haiti was hit again with another Earthquake. Instead they are being turned back, or flown back, despite what the right-wing overly melodramatic drama queens are saying. www.vox.com

Is it a problem? Hell yes. It's hot, there's not enough water or food, the only shelter is under that bridge.

Biden didn't create a "magnet" at all. That's talk born out of ignorance.

Sounds like they've been trolled, quite literally.

You're showing off your ignorance again. The vast majority of Haitians are not "Native American" as you call it nor have ancestors who were "here" before so-called white folks. If you're talking about Latin-Americans, the majority of them are of European descent. Mexico was never this far north until it was New Spain, and certainly those from South and Central America were not from "here" unless you want to go back so far as to imply anybody with ancestry from any world region can use that to ignore national borders.

Well your problem with Haitians is of there African descent.

As far as the people of central America they were at least in Arizona, they can tell by the mounds and especially the ball fields.

I'll be perfectly honest.

People who come to America thinking they're going to live off working taxpayers grate on my nerves.

We have enough of that already. Has nothing to do with race so don't even play that card.

America needs people to come here who want to work and want to contribute and want to make something of a better life.

Immigrants should be vetted for some level of ability and desire to assimilate.

Otherwise stay where you are.

And don't throw Bible verses.

America is not a theocracy like they have in some countries.

I always love it when liberals who don't care about Christian virtues otherwise shake the Bible when it suits them.

Maybe they're pointing out the hypocrisy of so-called Christians who don't seem to be bothered about bearing false witness.

Dan,

Regarding hypocrisy...there's no doubt about it.

You can't be a Christian without being a hypocrite.

Being a Christian means you believe in values greater than yourself you can never successfully live up to.

However, I'm not saying I think America should function in a strictly Biblical manner so you can't pin hypocrite on me for that.

The way I see it, being a Christian is a personal experience. It's how I conduct my life and not how I order you to conduct yours.

Besides...are you living Christian life? Who are you to tell me I'm not?

Now...your false witness...where did you read that? Sounds like something someone told you.

What do you think it means?

That's not what we're doing - we quote the bible to show you hipochristians that YOURE not following it.

You ignore the thing jesus said on almost every page - care for the sick, the poor, and the immigrant - and focus on something he never talked about - gay people and abortion.

Republicans WANT america to be a theocracy. And with enough help from voters like you, they can make it into one.

What about people who come to america and buy a media outlets that broadcast to the country that the problems of the working class are caused by immigrants, when they're actually caused by plutocrats?

Speak,

You know it's impossible to say Jesus never talked about something.

Just think of all the many hours and days and weeks of conversations Jesus had with all the people he knew.

I find it hard to believe what we read in the Bible is the full scope of His thoughts and feelings.

I have learned over the years some Christian ideals come through extrapolation and interpretation.

Any suggestion or defense that something should be accepted by Christians just because Jesus isn't in the bible talking about it is actually kind of absurd.

Your incessant lies about the safety and efficacy of vote by mail, despite never having a lick of proof.
