Southern Border Patrol - December 9th 2018, 01:56 PM

I live in a Southern State in America and come from an area where many refugees have tried to flee there country Cuba to enter America in the past. I now see all this talk about increased security at the border which is fine, but some of the tactics I have seen such as tear gas and pellet guns seems a bit out of hand to turn back woman and children and babies.

Some of these videos I have seen are very disturbing to be where obviously these families are trying to get a better life in America because some of the children fleeing don't have shoes or even pants and they are being turned back by tear gas and pellet guns because they are running to the border and are scared and it is disorderly.

I just don't get it when I country which is suppose to stand for THE LAND OF THE FREE can do that At lease give these people a chance. Hell if the people who started this country were never given a chance we wouldn't even have a country.

That is just my opinion and I really don't know much of politics or History and I would love to hear other peoples opinions on this. Even if you are not from the United States it would be interesting to hear what you thought.

Are you insane like me?
Been in pain like me?
Bought a 100 dollar bottle of champagne like me?
Just to pour that motherfucker down the drain like me?
Would you use your water bill to dry the stain like me?

I agree with you. Even if you're not voting age, I'd encourage you to reach out to your representatives in congress! They need to know future voters don't stand for the injustice.

I agree with you that they should be given a chance. We let refugees into the UK. Its not right when children and babies are getting turned away and especially with the force they are using.

They shouldn't throw rocks at border patrol officers and use their children as shields then.
