Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 01, 2019

Rejecting the notion that denouncing the Trump administration's immigrant detention centers as "concentration camps" does harm to the memory of the Holocaust, 200 Jewish people demonstrated at a facility in New Jersey Sunday evening and demanded the release of the thousands of immigrants in U.S. custody. Grassroots group Never Again Action called for all detention centers to be closed and for the U.S. government to protect asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants -- instead of sending Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) into communities where the agency has arrested hundreds so far this year in raids. The group reported that 36 participants were arrested for blocking the road to the Elizabeth Detention Center in Elizabeth, New Jersey. "I have to do whatever is in my power to disrupt ICE, to close these camps, to provide permanent protection, and to ensure that 'never again' means never again," said Rebecca Oliver, a demonstrator who was arrested.

If it seems like this is all falling apart on you that's because it is.

2019 is the year of the boomerang.

Mad at people pretending to be moderates, maybe.

No Trump supporter is a moderate. Every Trump supporter is a Right-wing radical. You just have some who are "woke" to this and some who are not.

Couldn't be that any Trump supporter is a disingenuous cynic.

No, you've just gone all in for open borders. It's incredibly Libertarian of you. I used to be one, but they never win.

I hate muscovy ducks. They're an nuisance invasive species.

Mallards are pretty tasty when bacon wrapped and roasted. Redheads and other divers have a much stronger liver flavor, not that into eating them. It's like the difference between a ringneck dove and a mourning dove.

It's not a game. Progressives and Libertarians have never been closer together on Immigration. It's amazing to see.

It is amazing. Progressives AKA fake liberals AKA statists have adopted just 2 libertarian ideas: open borders and drug legalization. We know why they love open borders: political power.

#15 | Posted by nullifidian, I doubt that will turn out like the Democrats expect. Maybe the first generation, will marginally go for the Democrats. But considering their demographics, it probity will not last. Most become lower middle class blue collar workers. They take the jobs the Irish, Poles, Jews and Italians once took. Work in the building trades, Pack meat, and open small businesses. They are social conservatives. They hate paying taxes. They have serious scorn for men who do not work. Trump got about 30% of the Hispanic vote in Texas, he will likely do better in the next election.
#14 | Posted by sitzkrieg, Even libertarians put up fences. I thought property rights were fundamental to our values. I consider my citizenship my property. Because of that ownership, some bureaucrat can send you a letter telling you to go in and report for military service. Some bureaucrat can garnish your wadges, confiscate your property, and put you in prison if he says you didn't pay enough taxes. Illegal aliens have no skin in the game.

So what? Republicans want to use imminent domain to seize private property and convert it to public property to build a fence with funding inevitably assigned through crony capitalism. There's nothing Libertarian about that.

The LP has been for wide ranging immigration reform that decriminalizes it and streamlines the path for everybody, when the Democrat faces were the wall building deportation advocates and Republicans were advocating guest worker programs.

So that is your argument against Republicans stopping illegal immigration is that the government wants to build a wall?

The alternative is invasive government on businesses and individuals PROVING they are citizens.

Pick your poison.

Sounds like every other politician, utopian?

Freedom is an increasingly utopian ideal it seems.

There are many alternatives. You just don't like them, because you're a Republican.
