But can't you infer what was said? If economically it is a wash, hence no impact to the GDP, no impact to unemployment...then what are the minutemen really providing? xenophobia?

Why don't the minutemen goto the Canadian Border? Or get boats and patrol the coast of South Florida? Or question immigrants in New York?

after the european settlers violently overthrew the native population, in the name of god (manifest destiny)? wow, thats real fair. i dont understand how anyone that preaches morality can stand behind unfair laws rooted in such immorality.
So much blah...blah...blah.

Life isn't fair. Get over it. War happens. Get over it.

but there is a pretty distinct line between basic human rights and luxuries. when someone is in a position where sacrificing their luxuries enables more people to have basic human rights, then it should be done. especially if the work ethic and effort is the same from both parties, with only geographical/economical boundaries deciding any sort of difference of quality of life.
Communism failed.

Yes, it's the same ol' race card being played. Such tactics are despicable.

Enforcement of the law. I've never seen macroeconomics used as a defense strategy for criminals. I'm not surprised, though.

From the videos point of view, they are contributing-- just not as much. They definitely not bringing us back.

To borrow from the thread title, "This is such bull."

Exhibit A: when someone is in a position where sacrificing their luxuries enables more people to have basic human rights, then it should be done.

That, ghost, is communism.
