Why is it that people with weak arguments always think that calling the other person stupid somehow makes their arguments stronger.
Yes, the US does turn people away at the border. Where did you get the silly idea this doesn't happen.
No. We do not turn people away at the border if they are seeking asylum. Where did you get that silly idea?

Who has declared these as refugees?
A refugee is ..."because they have suffered (or feared) persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or because they are a member of a persecuted social category of persons or because they are fleeing a war."
Living in a chaotic country doesn't make you a refugee--it makes you the same as most countries in South America and the Middle East.
I have never made the claim that these people are "refugees". If that were the case, we wouldn't have sent any of them packing. However, fact is, some of them have requested asylum and that is what we are discussing. Try and stay focused.

Was dangling amnesty out there like bait worth the lives of the kids it cost Pelosi, Reid, Lewis, et al?
I suggest you go back and read Obama's law. Amnesty was never "dangled" for those living in Central America. That was Reagan's carrot.

Malaysia Airlines senior vice president Huib Gorter said there were at least 154 Dutch, 27 Australians, 23 Malaysians, 11 Indonesians, six Britons, four Germans, four Belgians, three Phillippinos and one Canadian aboard the Boeing 777 jet.
There were a further 47 passengers whose nationality was not yet known. All the 15 flight crew were Malaysian."

"President Obama, at an event in Delaware this afternoon, said, "Obviously, the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border.

That is our first priority, and I've directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian government."

Israel is less than a week from reclaiming the Gaza and they will NEVER give it back, partly because they know it was a mistake the first time and mostly to rub Odonothings nose in it. I wouldn't expect many sub-human trash left alive in the Gaza either.
Really? Israel invaded Gaza in 2006. Israel invaded Gaza in 2009. What's so different this time around?

And you just showed yours--
Because OBVIOUSLY, you od NOT even comprehend the BIG (yet very SIMPLE) difference between-
Legal and ILLEGAL.
When Congress passed the INA, it defined an "alien" as any person lacking citizenship or status as a national of the United States. Different categories of aliens include resident and nonresident, immigrant and nonimmigrant, and documented and undocumented ("illegal"). The terms "documented" and "undocumented" refer to whether an arriving alien has the proper records and identification for admission into the U.S. Having the proper records and identification typically requires the alien to possess a valid, unexpired passport and either a visa, border crossing identification card, permanent resident card, or a reentry permit.
****The INA expressly refuses stowaway aliens entry into the U.S.*****
(There's YOUR clue-lemming jackboot licking ozombieTic type IDIOT.)
We were discussing "refugees" not illegals. Try to stay focused.

You keep wandering away from the point of contention here.
You say we should be only concerned with immigration on our continent.
Why only this continent?
Try better drugs.
Well, I wasn't discussing immigration. I was discussing foreign policy. The United States needs to stop interfering in affairs overseas. We have enough to keep us busy right here on our own continent. Period.

You NUT CASE

The plane crushed at 10:00 a.m. You lamely want to pretend that Reuters and AP made no comments until between 5:50 and 7:00 pm . I already linked to articles noting the earlier press releases of AP and Reuters and I can search out and post their tweets.

You guys need to realize that they played you for idiots and MOVE ON

Any other childish thing that you are wishing to have hysteria about or do have more Progressive website BS to post?

In other words, you've got nothing to back up your assertion except your personal opinion...which counts for absolutely nothing. Where is your llist of the 13 SCOTUS decision against Obama? If you can't provide them then we must all assume you are a liar.
It was author's personal opinion-moron-and his logic was deeply flawed!

I listed why it was.

You have repeatedly failed to refute what I have stated.

The poster stated -13 court cases against the Obama admin

See, you did it yourself--try to narrow what is being referred to. That is called being dishonest just like the author was being when he tried to narrow it to EO
