Starving in a US prison is still better than living as a free citizen
in Mexico? Unbelievable.

The Everyday Psychology of Nationalism
http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/201...
The ideology of nationalism has a complex history, originating in early-modern Europe and evolving in myriad ways as it's spread throughout the world. Today nationalism can be civic, ethnic, or a combination of the two, but all nationalists “carry strong attitudes and beliefs about their own people and about others, who feel their attachment to their nation passionately, and who even, at times, act with great cruelty against their enemies,”

Chinese In Jamaica: Xenophobia Or Justified Concern?
http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20140309/f...
Xenophobia is defined as "an unreasonable fear or hatred of foreigners or strangers or of that which is foreign or strange". Key here is the word 'unreasonable' because it implies that there is no rational basis for the anxiety.

At the individual level, it, like all phobias, is relatively harmless. However, when xenophobia is a cultural or societal norm, it leads to conflicts and all manner of evil against the 'foreigners'. Nonetheless, it is not as strange a phenomenon as one thinks.

On the contrary, it is based on a relatively natural reaction of animals to threats to their very survival.

here in America, you are free to die if you wish......so starve yourselves to death if you all want. Unbelievable, that they feel we will give them amnesty right away and halt the deportations so they won't starve themselves. Talk about arrogance !!!

But we humans, unlike animals, would like to see our grandchildren survive as well.

If Darwin were alive today would he not be a nationalist?

They should gather all the ones who are starving and put them at the front of the line for the Deportation Bus.

I sincerely doubt that they're starving, more than likely food is being taken to them by sympathizers, it's all smoke and mirrors.
