If anyone disagrees, than they have no brain and no understanding of the history of South America. We are following down the same road to hell and will join them soon enough at the rate we are going. No more shining beacon of hope for the rest of the world to admire. Just crap holes as far as the eye can see, and no escape from it. Who would want to bring children into the world we are creating?

And the word "racist" has been thrown around so carelessly and recklessly that it has lost it's meaning and effectiveness for the left. When a leftist calls you a racist, it simply means "I don't like you". You folks need to come up with a new strategy and some new material. I never hear Asians calling anyone racist. Wonder why that is.... Oh yes, because they are too busy working hard and succeeding and building a better life for themselves and their families. Since they make an effort to succeed, they have no reason to complain, and no reason to demand handouts and free crap from the taxpayers. Imagine that!

The most important point made is that the lack of cultural assimilation will hurt America. Citizens from the Middle East do not assimilate well into American culture. Hispanics do, unless circumstances force them to live in enclaves - circumstances like being illegal, not speaking English, and being largely unemployable are the ones that come to mind.
We should keep those people out until we can regulate their entry into the job market. Then we should allow the ones in that we want in.

There are photos on Facebook of Illegal border crossing points in AZ.

You'd think you're looking at City Landfills there is so much trash and garbage.

Or maybe parts of homeless Los Angeles.

Funny you mention the word "racist". I live in AZ and from time to time Snowflake comes up in topics of conversation on the drivetime afternoon news show on the FM local news network 92.3 FM. Mac & Gaydos is the name of the show. They are mostly center, maybe center right but they are rather fair. Snowflake is a mostly white neighborhood (at 87% of the population, Native Americans are second at nearly 7%) in southern Navajo County. A fairly rural area mind you. Sometimes it comes up with the name, but often the politics of the area are a problem. Jeff Flake came from there (no idea if he was a descendant of one of the two town founders) but he has been a proven fake when it comes to being principled. The comments of "declining white birthrates" and schools being weighted down by "stupid non-whites" is actually somewhat common. Mac & Gaydos attack this town and for good reason. It is your stereotypical xenophobic backwoods town. Wendy Rogers is no saint and wants to remove Social Security, but she is right that these comments were out of line.

Anyway, as for racism losing its meaning, it has only because people turned the fight from just racist people to the institution itself is racist (sexist can work here too.) I mean, it is easy to understand why Donald Trump is called a racist, he says racist things that aren't even dog whistles. "Go back home" has long been a rallying cry against immigrants (whether you talk from another state or a country) and he even called native born women immigrants. Three out of the four from the squad were native born Americans. Hell even if you want to use birth-right citizenship, AOC is legal because she was born to Puerto Ricans (a U.S. territory) and there is no proof Pressley's parents weren't American. Only Imar and Talib would not be citizens without birth right (Imar would not even be eligible to birth-right either.) "Go back home" was previously reserved to the Irish and Italians, just watch Gangs of New York which was with the 1860's draft card riots by the Know Nothings (especially New York's Dead Rabbits) who were the prototype of Trump Republicans.

Those who choose to forget the past are bound to repeat it. We are repeating it. We should know better.

MANY of the parts of the southwest already look like South-America.
