He even said that not all illegal Mexicans are that way that some are good people. So you're just lying again!

MSNBC put their own lying spin on what Trump actually said!

You're like most congressmen. Can't tell the truth for nothing. So again, where in the video did Trump call "all" people of color rapists, criminals, etc. as you claimed?

Link the resources that says, the u.s. can not. Just because they don't does not mean they can't.
I love slow pitch debates.

Neighbors help each other when and if they can. Do you put a roof on your neighbor's house when your own roof is caving in? Charity begins at home or at least it should.

Links to show that we can't do both? Hahahaha quite possibly the funniest question yet. Proof is in the pudding. If we could we would. The Fact and I do mean fact that we haven't to date pretty much proves that we can't do both. That or we just won't. You decide.

That being the case, there isn't a single Bahaman, or any other foreigner that is more worthy of our help than our own homeless, especially our vets, many of whom we broke while they served.

We help the world everyday. We squander tax dollars playing world cop. We squander dollars and assets patrolling the Seas against pirates. Our Coast guard saves lives everyday and many are not US citizens. We are a damned good neighbor. Our generosity has been abused many many times by those refugees in the past. We have wasted billions on Haiti and it is no better for it. Your good neighbor argument falls flat.

I still have not seen a post that explains why we should take in Bahaman refugees other than the feel good moment. We have US refugee
living on our streets homeless, hungry and soon to be freezing. They don't have running water or heat, clean clothes or a clean bed. They don't have a warm beach that many people pay thousands to vacation on.

The Bahamas are not one island devastated. Most of the Bahamas are fine, let them take care of their own on their own soil.

Not really no. First of all that clip was very biased reporting and you would have to be the monkey and the monkey covering his ears not to see it and hear it for what it was. It was another political hit piece.

The illegals from Mexico. Do we not have many illegals in our prisons for:
Murder?
Rape?
Smuggling drugs?
Hit and run driving and no insurance?
gang involvement?
Some that cross haven't committed violent crimes but thousands have.

I disagree with how Trump expresses himself. He is crude and rude. That said he wasn't wrong about the illegals crossing our southern border.

Blacks and hispanics in our inner cities. What sane person would leave their home in suburbia to live in Baltimores danger zone? Chicago's? Atlanta's? La's? etc. Not me. They are hell holes of crime and violence they are what completely skews our crime statistics. Trump wasn't wrong.

You refuse to accept facts and prefer talking points. Let me clue you in. If it comes from MSNBC, CNN, FOX, etc then chances are the veracity is questionable.

Trump claims Bahamians are very bad people, criminals, refuses to let helpless Bahaman refugees into the USA...
But if there were a white Anglo-Saxon billionaire who happened to live in the Bahamas...

Then they wouldn't be applying for refugee status and would fly out asap. Or they would already have a VISA.
We don't the Bahamans anything, besides they have ability to help their own.

Inaccurate story. This had everything to do with the ferry, not Trump.

And why are you comparing sending assistance to country suffering from natural disaster to accepting hundred of thousands TPS refugees into the country?

It's like damn if we don't and damn if we do.
Wrong. The Bahamas is not El Salvador, Haiti or Honduras. It is the 3rd-wealthiest nation in WI/Caribbean (though not properly situated there). Their standard of living was decent. The majority have little interest in the US.

Stop the blatant lying. The Bahamas has one of the highest standards of living in the WI/Caribbean region and they are NOT looking to come to the US and live off of anyone’s generosity.

Quit making up foolish stories and get it through your head that not everyone wants to live in the US.
