I'm going to laugh when all of this s**t helps get Trump elected. The Democratic Party of America no longer cares about us.

Of course, for some Republicans, that can be said, too.

How much y'all wanna bet ISIS uses this as another way to come over here?

I really don't get this.

People from all the world are ruining their own countries for a list of reasons and instead of trying to help them resolve whatever the issue is, we just take and take and take.... to what end? who's going to pay for all this?

we'd be better off sterilizing them via their water supply since it's against Islam and Catholicism to use birth control or get an abortion - but apparently not against their faiths to break the law.

These people have gone through some horrors between the civil wars and the gangs, pretty brutal. Nation building in these countries would have been a worth while effort to stem the tide as opposed to returning someone that has traveled a thousand miles to escape death.

Read the comments. Even the left leaning intellectuals are against this nonsense and many are saying they will vote Trump. I truly think Dems have gone way too far, dont realize it, and will get slaughtered in November.

I am poor and tired, but I refuse to huddle. Nasty. That's how you get lice, crabs, and bedbugs.

If we keep bringing people here from war torn, poor, savage third world countries, our country will cease to exist and we won't have a choice either.


I'm not sure how people don't 'get' that.

I don't either. They bring their cultures with them and don't assimilate like previous generations of immigrants had.

how many more generations are we going to "rescue" and bring here? I feel like we and Europe are being invaded.

Central Americans, compared to many of the Caribbean Latinos for some reason, are less volatile, harder working, and more isolated in that they don't need to be around other central Americans in order to thrive. Also by contrast to Caribbean Latinos, they also tend to take more risks living in more expensive regions to serve the upper echelons that many Caribbean Latinos don't- it's a pride thing.

It's just pure culture I suppose. But by in large, many Puerto Ricans, Colombians, Cubans, and Dominicans have the Afro-latin gene in them that contributes to them being more socially outgoing, flashy, full of life, less conservative, festive, but also like to play hard.
