if the word PREDATOR didn't strike you the first time, and if the second occurrence of PREDATOR didn't hit your antennae, then surely the THIRD instance of PREDATOR must have slapped you in the face. She was talking about PREDATORS, not MEXICANS. Or maybe you see them as interchangeable nouns?

They have become immune to the shock value. It is only when we shine a light on them that it becomes an issue worthy of defensive posturing.
Where are your facts and figures to back this up?

Not at all as I read it because of this key phrase culturally embedded predatory instincts, which implies the whole Mexican culture is afflicted with this.

Else she would have said: You can take sexual predators out of their country but . . . you can't take the predatory instincts out of the predator

See the difference?
But if she didn't mean it in this way, sure and she can publicly say so now.

So according to you, there is only Mexican culture? Cannot she be referring to the culture of predators?

The way it was worded, 'cultured embedded' is modifying predatory, which in turn, modifies instincts. And I believe the culture under discussion was not Ukranian, nor Polish, nor Greek, but...Mexican.

Still, let her explain what she means then. Simple enough to clarify, is it not?

Any true reconquista would know that Chicago is already a sanctuary city.
