Trump's literally said thousands of times there would be a big beautiful door in the middle of the wall for them to enter legally.

There's also a ton of non racist reasons to oppose legal immigration. It isn't like our cities are not crowded enough, and flooding the country with more people, many of them poor, doesn't help Americans get jobs and it suppresses wages.

The only reason you support illegal immigration is you see these voters as likely Democrat voters.

if they are likely Republican voters, we would have had a massive wall 50 years ago.

NOT the words of a white nationalist.
So how would you explain this?

"...It spoke of a “Hispanic invasion of Texas.” It detailed a plan to separate America into territories by race. It warned that white people were being replaced by foreigners.

"...The authorities were scrutinizing the 2,300-word screed on Saturday and attempting to determine whether it was written by the same man who killed 20 people and injured more than two dozen others near the Mexican border..."

"...The words of the manifesto, in citing the “great replacement” theory, echo the slogan that was chanted during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017: “Jews will not replace us...”

Better analogy: You came to my door, claiming that you were being chased by a gang that wanted to kill you. I say "too bad" and slam the door in your face. My wife says "let him in, at least until we can determine if he's really in danger. Meanwhile, let's give him something to eat". I say "No way, this is our house, we don't want him here. He'll eat us out of house and home". My wife says "have a little compassion. We have plenty of extra food. And once he gets on his feet, he'll be able to pay rent which we could really use." I disagree, and we get into a big argument about it, possibly leading to divorce.

Good advice. Antifa is unarmed, they have never used a firearm in any of their protests. How thoughtful of Mr. Patrick to show concern for Antifa's safety.

We are under attack by white nationalists.

And, hey, thought Trump's Muslim Ban was to protect us from Terrorists.

Looks like it is another Failed Trump Policy.

We need a ban on White Nationalists.

I was truthful and you should apologize.
He was talking about the caravans and people trying to abuse the refugee process.

People were killed in the Nazi concentration campus. that's not happening at the border.

Another leftwing lie based in your quest for more political power.

you are trivializing the Holocaust when you say our border is like Nazi concentration camps.

That's Soviet style propaganda.

Since we do not have any issues with gay men shooting people let's concentrate on the people that we do have problems. That is disaffected White supremacist males. OK?

Further, what did Mayor Pete say that is incorrect? I ask b/c you deflect with asking about a gay child. We will never fix our problems if we don't face reality of this situation. Yes?

If Trump doesn't tone down his inflammatory racist language, he will be complicit in these acts of domestic terrorism.

Paranoid delusion. On display for the world to see. Mix in a little denial, obfuscation, accusing the other side of doing what you're doing and some dehumanizing of people you don't like.

He was talking about poor brown people coming to apply for refugee status legally. Your assumption that they are gaming the system because a couple do is not factual.

Concentration camps aren't limited to Nazis or Jews. We put the Japanese Americans in them. This is the same as that. Come off your high horse, I think you're sitting backwards up there.
