@davidfrum @TheAtlantic This has nothing to do with enforcement. The president is claimig the immigrants coming to our country are some kind of ‘liberal plot’ or somehow associated with the Democratic party - this is a lie. Democrats want border enforcement too - we just don’t think a wall makes sense.
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic You of all people should recognize that this entire story is a propaganda piece being used by the President & his alt-reich pals to create a kind of xenophobic fury in order to get more votes for the midterms. There’s a discussion re enforcement but this is a false narrative.
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic The majority of Dem voters are in favor of border enforcement- it’s just not high on the list of priorities given the current state of our country/ politics. Democratic leaders have voted for stronger border enforcement very recently & have been pushing for immigration reforms.
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic Not to mention that these immigrants have nothing to do with any political party or anything going on in this country. This is entirely to do with conditions in Honduras. Dems are not saying, ‘just let everyone in without vetting & legal process’...cont...
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic What Democrats are saying is, ‘let there be a fair legal process’ & ‘don’t fucking lock up children or drag them away from their parents for a freakin misdemeanor or applying for asylum.” Excuse me but, we are the reasonable voices in this debate so don’t try to put this on us.
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic Time after time Dems have been at the negotiating table trying to get immigration reform & agreeing to tighter border security -this entire piece about Dems being for ‘open borders’ is the biggest load of shit. The #GOP controls every branch of gov!! How is this a Dem problem?!!
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic You think Devin Nunes - a large AG Farm owner & these other GOP Congress members actually want immigration reform?!! They don’t- they want low wage workers with our current system & only want to use immigration as a talking point to rally their xenophobic base. I call major BS.
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic If it was up to the #GOP (which it is since they control our entire gov) they would NEVER do any kind of immigration reform - they don’t even really want more border security because they giant ass farms rely on low wage workers. They’ve had every opportunity to pass legislation.
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic They’re happy to just keep immigrants in legal limbo forever so they can use this as a permanent talking point & voting issue to whip up their xenophobic, racist base. Dems would love to do immigration reform including tightening security measures. This is the truth. #VoteBlue
@davidfrum @TheAtlantic David Frum -your article is way off base. The real story here is that Trump has turned your party into a White Nationalist party & they love to use immigration as their main source for vitriol. We can have an immigration reform debate but not with bad faith actors. Look: @MaxBoot
