    For all of you that want to talk about Immigration and the coronavirus, have at it. I made a tread for y'all.

    Maybe a mod can transfer the post in the other tread relating to immigration to this one.
     
    ... or it could be that it was really loud?

    Fun fact: Mexicans tend to play music way too loud to the point it sounds distorted. Also, the music playing was Northern music, which I don't particularly care for. I'm with the neighbor on this one.

    I lived in Guadalajara for a bit, I know all about banda music, etc lol... The music of my people is merengue, salsa, vallenato, etc. We play it loud too...

    The neighbor yelling reportedly told them to 'go back to their country' during the tirade which is why I posted it... If it was too loud, that should have been his sole point...

    So what's racist about telling them to go back to their country? People tell me all the time to go back to Nova Scotia when I cheese them off by having loud crawfish boils. They obviously assume my people are Acadian because I live in New Orleans and boil/eat crawfish with a large gathering of people who have last names that end in -eaux or some other Acadian spelling. Or maybe it's the zydeco we bump full blast through a 1988 top of the line Sony Boom Box - you know the one I'm talking about...about 18' tall and 36' long/wide, a shiny silver plastic front made to look like chrome over a matted black, and knobs, dials, switches and buttons that are also a shiny color so they can be seen by all the girls passed while walking down the street with the box on your shoulder. /s

    OK, I'm just stupid and there is absolutely no white guy response of defense in situations where a white person tells any person of color to go back where they came from like we didn't commit genocide and then enslave people mainly from Africa but also numerous other countries around the world as long as we could get away with it, just to be the proud Americans we are today.

    The older I get, the more embarrassing it is to be a white person. That's pretty much the same thing the Trump cult is built on but I feel that way for many different reasons than they do, though they are actually one of the bigger reasons when it comes down to it.

    Plus, i'm not sure where they are, but anyone living in the US southwest who tells a Mexican to go back to their country should really learn a little history.
     





    Biden's border policies have been an absolute disaster. Is Biden racist for possibly continuing construction of the border wall?


    The White House referred questions to the Department of Justice, which explained it sought to delay cases instead of ending them since Biden’s review was not complete.

    “DOJ sought continuances in pending cases, including in this case, in which the government had previously filed motions for possession of land on the southwest border in light of President Biden’s proclamation terminating the national emergency at the southern border of the United States and directing ‘a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to construct a southern border wall,’” a DOJ official said.

    After Biden was sworn into office, activists along the border sent a letter to him and his team, urging them to immediately dismiss all eminent domain cases. Some of the cases are still in the early stages, where property was being reviewed. Other cases pertain to possible compensation for property that has already been seized.

    A Customs and Border Protection spokesperson said CBP and the Army Corps of Engineers “have suspended surveys, negotiations with landowners, and similar real estate acquisition activities, in accordance with the president's proclamation.” But the spokesperson referred questions about litigation to DOJ.

    Do you even read what you post? It seems whoever's in charge of Politco's twitter doesn't read what they post either. Save your "outrage" for if something actually happens.

    When will Biden become a racist for his policies on the border?

    The Biden administration could well have stopped yesterday's ruling, handed down by Alvarez in McAllen, Texas. On his first day in office, Biden issued a proclamation pausing border wall construction for 60 days to determine if any land needed to be confiscated. That 60 days came and went without a decision.

    Yet he was insistent the decision was already made on the campaign trail. "There will not be another foot of wall constructed in my administration," he told NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro in August of last year. And the land seizures? "End, end, end, stop, done, over. Not gonna do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We're out."

    He did not, in fact, withdraw the lawsuits. "Yesterday, we witnessed a betrayal of the Biden Administration's commitment to end construction of the border wall," said Ricky Garza, an attorney for the Texas Civil Rights Project, in a statement. "In federal court, the President's pause on border wall construction is meaningless without immediate action from the DOJ to dismiss these cases."

    Kindly share with the class where Biden has built any more of the wall. While you're at it, share with us where he's seized additional land. The only point you have is that the suits haven't been withdrawn, DOJ has asked for continuance which they theoretically could do ad infinitum, in which case.. Nothing happens?

    I say again: Save your "outrage" for when something actually happens.

    Construction of Trump’s border wall may continue under Biden, administration admits

    Biden promised to stop seizing border wall land. His DOJ is still doing it.
    The administration is past a self imposed 60-day deadline to review resources for the wall. And it’s still taking land for it.


    The article I posted about the wall doesn't say he built more on the wall. It said he is considering it. If the wall is so racist why even consider it?

    The article about seizing the land says they are past their 60 day review period without a decision. I'll admit to not being too familiar with some parts of immigration law. If they asked for a continuance on the case, why did they already seize the land from the owner?

    Let’s say Biden goes ahead and continues building the wall.

    You could definitely point out the hypocrisy, but on the whole, this is a Biden position you would support, right?
