    Why shouldn't it? Last I checked this was our country, not theirs. We owe them nothing and they should only be allowed in with our permission under our rules. They have ZERO right to enter otherwise. Why shouldn't we be able to pick and choose who we want to live with us on our land and enforce that decision?
    What do you mean "our" rules?

      Immigration law. As in the rules our government created to determine who can and cannot enter the US. You know the ones that nobody follows anymore. Those rules.

        I support the continued non-enforcement of federal law. Gotta be bold if you want to oppose big government.

          This sounds perfectly reasonable to me. Why would we allow unvetted or unchecked individuals of any race, country, or religion to be allowed to come and stay here?

          Moving on to better discussion now. Pick someone else if you want to fight.
          And where exactly was my “ridiculously misguided personal attack” in that message?

            This is one of the things that the Feds should be doing since it involves several states.

              Should be doing? What it should be doing is as little as possible - let the states sort this out themselves. I don't believe in the federal government as a problem solver theory.

              Though state governments are just as incompetent and oppressive, so they're not a real solution either.

                  Nope. I have little regard for the state, in any form. The whole 'necessary evil' part of it means just what it says on the tin - it's an evil that should only be tolerated insomuch as it is absolutely necessary.

                  And there is precious little at the state or federal level that is absolutely necessary.

                    I would think this creates a similar problem to Europe though? One nation / US State has an open door immigration policy but what about the impact on neighbours. If said migrants skip across the border to a nation / State that doesn't want them, isn't that an issue in both Europe and the US?

                      So you let the states handle it. If they don't like what you're doing, then they shut down their border with you as a reprisal. Simple, elegant, and left up to the individuals rather than enforcing a "one size fits all" solution.

                      After all, if I want to collapse my economy, shouldn't that be my choice?

                        DoD wouldn't do that.

                        Font 1 guy on the other hand just might.

                          I've been taking a break from all this lunacy - most of it being DoD's, of course.
