Just like living & working in the US via H1B/L1/E1/TN visas do not make you a US citizen and receiving all the benefits US citizens are getting.

Also, i did live in Japan for one year. Compliment of U.S. CBP -CSI
Good points however she is still in Tokyo for an indefinite period of time and getting as much benefits as she needs to live there,obviously she will never be incorporated into the Japanese culture as she isnt Oriental.

Another out of context thread. He didn't say people from the Bahamas were all criminals and bad people. What he did say was that they have a lot of drug dealers and other violent criminals living in the Bahamas, many of them are from Haiti. I guess we are supposed to open our borders to every nation that experiences a natural disaster and not screen who comes in. Does anyone really believe that if they allow thousands of these islanders in on a temporary basis that they will all leave when they are supposed to, and that none of them will be committing crimes?

It's the same lie of the liberal left when they claimed that Trump said all Mexicans (regardless of their status in our country) are rapists, murderers, etc. They don't have a honest bone in their bodies. Of course we have to vet these Bahamans to make sure we aren't taking the criminal kind into our country and you're right just like Haitians many of those we do take in will refuse to leave after their country is safer

I remember after the Hurricane hit Haiti, many of my Haitian coworkers in public school in Florida had their relatives come stay with them. Some even went back to Haiti, born in US citizens, to help out with the clean up efforts.

Different world under Trump.

Yes, itís a lazy deflection.

Excellent!!! As of 2018 there were 553,000 homeless in the United States those agencies can take care of by providing shelter and food!! No more living on the street and digging through garbage cans and dumpsters for food. In Los Angeles alone there are 50,000 to 60,000.

How is it different? Being more caucious of whom we allow into our country is a bad thing?

Trump claims Bahamians are very bad people, criminals, refuses to let helpless Bahaman refugees into the USA...
In trump's eyes, anyone who's not white is bad and a criminal.

Many Bahamians are coming to stay with relatives and there is countless relief efforts going on right now. Is also disingenuous to compare a wealthy country like the Bahamas to Haiti.
