7 agents were attacked by 6 immigrants using rocks, bottles, and tree branches. This was counted as 126 assaults. And that's probably not even close to all of the fuckery going on.

Yeah. Unfortunately, it's not hard to find enough racist assholes here in Tucson to get that verdict. :(

The trauma involved with that kind of behavior is hard to overstate. The relevant term is "blowback."

a genealogist is reminding white xenophobes that they are all descended from immigrants.  but, since that is too tricky in the abstract, she is doing genealogies of specific people.

This is so cruel I can't even process that in 2018 the US can be doing it. Every decent Canadian I've mentioned it to has been horrified, and most brought up the spectre of Residential Schools and the Sixties Scoop, where FN children were torn from their families and placed in boarding schools, or adopted out to white families. We stopped that more than half a century go and people are still suffering as a result.

This is even worse. I also read the US has no idea where more than a thousand immigrant kids in their care even are.

I've also skimmed through popular public forums and there are large numbers of people defending the plan to warehouse these kids.

Probably because they want the next step to be extermination of these "criminals"

America is an awful country full of terrible people.

Pure cruelty based on pure resentment.

Some days I really do wish I could force everyone to see what it's like to actually have to leave your country and go somewhere else, to know that such an extreme move is the only thing that could possibly give you a hope of giving your children a decent life. To know that your situation in your own home is that utterly fucking hopeless and broken. Like, my SIL couldn't handle the stress and culture shock and change of moving from NY to fucking VA, but we all need to do our American duty of shitting on immigrants all the time because "we can't just take everyone" and "we can't give everything away all the time." Fuck every asshole in this country who thinks this is okay.

They think it is a great 'deterrent'. And at least one person advocated putting mine fields at the more popular border crossings.

Obviously there are lots of good people in America. But there seems to be literal millions of really terrible people who have not even a scintilla of empathy or compassion. Especially empathy though.

My favorite thing about Trump calling immigrants animals is the way it's beautifully timed with all of these recent think pieces in various major outlets about how liberals and the left need to watch their language or they'll upset the right into becoming Nazis:

no no no you see he was "only" talking about MS-13 gang members, something that he definitely hasn't seriously overblown and used over and over as a dog whistle to demonize all immigrants.

ICE says someone is affiliated with a gang, in order to deport him under DACA. A judge essentially says they lied.
