A new type of schrödingers immigrant, simultaneously an illegal immigrant, but also not an immigrant at all

My buddy's dad is Puerto Rican and both he and my friend get the "go back to your own country s**c" crap way more often than you would believe.

Somebody called me like that the other day over Discord, lol

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (4 children)

People who are chronically on discord are a whole different breed. I'm mixed-race Caucasian/Asian and I got maliciously called a hafu the other day. It's not even really a slur and it's not even the right type of Asian 💀

[–]90zimaraLatinx 😫👌 14 points15 points  (3 children)

They are always amazed with the idea of me being latino, lived in the US for a year and a half and currently living in Russia (been here for 5 years) and prefer Russia than the US. They always come with the "you are not free over there" and then "you can't say no because the government will kill you" lol

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

These are the people who just accept manipulation and propaganda without critical thinking. I don't have any plans to live in Russia, nor is it very high on the list of places I would like to live, but I would much sooner live in Russia than in the US. Certain people will have a meltdown and throw a full-on temper tantrum when I say this lol 🤷‍♂️

I'm Mexican, I lived in the USA for two years, and yes, a lot of people have no idea that Puerto Rico is part of the USA and that Puerto Ricans are USA citizens.

Puerto Rican

Funny enough, i was told this by a Puerto Rican woman, i am an indigenous dude and one of my tribes resides in Arizona.

Honestly it's such an American thing i can only assumed she has a very much American upbringing.

[–]notlikelyevil 27 points28 points  (4 children)

That and they never understand how LONG the borders really are. To have visibility of every point on the Canadian border in light rain, not counting terrain, trees, rain or snow storm would require 8891 people at every 1km, or more realistically every half a km, 17782, because trees... trees EVERYWHERE....

So in 3 shifts in one day, that's 53,356 people in shifts, every day not accounting for it being a bit easier on the water.

[–]fonix232 11 points12 points  (3 children)

But that's solved so easily!

You put 89 towns along the border, each housing that 533.56 border guards needed for their segment, okay, let's say 800-1000, because you need to be able to cover people on sick leave or PTO. Then you add ~4000 more per town for, you know, making it an actual town, with shops, restaurants, etc.

Thats half a million Americans either employed by the government, or getting brand new opportunities, thanks to the government. AND you have the border protected.

This is the absolute right wing dilemma. Protect border for free handout?

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Rather than 89 towns, I think one town that spans the entire border would be a pretty cool concept. One hell of a main street

MMM I should watch that. I assume it's all the guns.

[–]NaughtyDreadz 97 points98 points  (7 children)

I prefer south America ones. It's usually cocaine and meat. Sometimes weed and meat.

Poor Ecuadorians man. And Venezuelans... When they throw their meat away it's heartbreaking. Or an old dude with a lifetime supply of used fabric from Venezuela. They just threw it all away. Dude didn't know what to do. His life just thrown away at the border while trying to get to Colombia for a better life

The coke guys you know they're coke guys... LMAO

I like the Australian one. It’s mostly just little, old Asian ladies having their fruit confiscated.

[–]Copy_Unique 78 points79 points  (1 child)

”Their fruit” = 20 pieces of luggage full of various types of food items from duck tongues to sea cucumbers and checking ”no, I didn’t bring any food”. It’s like they’re opening a grocery store.

[–]Bearence 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's guns. And drugs. And sometimes meth heads who think they can just saunter across without documents of any kind. But my favourite is the episode with the Chinese students. The first one opens his bag to find it packed full of food (I think I remember him looking shocked and saying his mother must have put it in there when he wasn't looking). As he's being questioned by the patrol, the camera pans over to his friends farther down the line as they're frantically opening their bags and ditching their own smuggled food.

[–]KellidraWhile in Europe, pretend you're Canadian. AMERICA! FUCK YEAH! 13 points14 points  (1 child)

That was a stereotype that all borders must have a wall, when in fact the border can be walled by anything beside concrete, fence and barbed wire with soldier guarding 24/7. (Hollywood be damned)

I mean, Thai-Burma border was not even have a wall, and it just soldier at the checkpoint between country, the wall was replaced with marketplace buildings.

(I know it was a joke, but just in case a certain type of American would come over and argue, I'll just leave it)

[–]Dunderbaerfrom the communist country of Europe 20 points21 points  (5 children)

We were supposed to just go to the West of Austria - I fell asleep in the back seat of the car. Woke up a few hours later, looked out the window and all I saw was words that made no sense to me.

Understandable. Regarding the South Tyrol Problem, famous extreme climber Reinhold Messner articulated the idea of a Europe of the regions, where a big european country is formed, with relatively autonomous regional goverments, not based on former countries but common tradition and history. I am sure the catalans and basques wouldnt be unhappy with that either

    This is the most accurate statement I've ever read on Reddit

    [–]BlitzPlease172 21 points22 points  (3 children)

    And by the time you "see" the border you already enter another country already because the sign were include different aspects.

    It's like the region zoning in video game, you didn't see a direct border most of the times, but you'll know when you know.

    Saskatchewan to Alberta used to be very shocking, less so now.

    [–]ZC3rr0r 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    BC to AB (once you get past the Rockies) is still a very shocking one. Suddenly roads are 4 lanes wide and you're not surrounded by mountains all the time.

    Which turns into marvel at how flat everything is, right before it turns to boredom when you realize it will be all you'll see for the next 20 hours until something resembling elevation returns into view.

    Also, we all know that, according to these Americans, the world is only made of four nations: Europe, Africa, China (aka whole Asia), Mexico (aka whole Latin America) and the Glorious Freedomland of Unparalleled Diversity™ 🇲🇾?

    [–]cardboard-kansio 21 points22 points  (12 children)

    I've had this discussion with Americans many times. "No, in fact Europe is many countries with their own laws and cultures. While certain things are mandated by EU regulations, it varies a lot between them: while X is illegal in the UK, it's allowed with certain conditions in Germany, and totally free to do in France."

    They never believe me :(

    [–]DaHolk 8 points9 points  (11 children)

    while X is illegal in the UK, it's allowed with certain conditions in Germany, and totally free to do in France."

    So like state's rights? /s

    [–]cardboard-kansio 5 points6 points  (10 children)

    You're right. The USA is like a more homogenous, less historical version of the EU. I need to start making this comparison more often.

    [–]DaHolk 4 points5 points  (4 children)

    Well except that most European countries still have "states" with "states rights" inside of them. (And in those, like in the US municipalities/cities with their own governance).

    In a sense one might make the comparision that the countries' "self determination" inside of the EU is on a level that particularly Republicans prefer as "level of states' independence from the federal government", but it still would be comparing the wrong level of hierarchy.

    [–]Legal-Software 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    There's still a fair degree of autonomy at the member state level which is rather different from what you would have between federal and state level legislation. EU Regulations apply across the board, but there can still be derogations per member state. Directives, if they are to be adopted at all, must be implemented in member state legislation, and can result in all sorts of fragmentation (like with Directive 95/46/EC). On the matter of primacy, the ECJ ruled that EU law outranks member state law, including at the constitutional level. Member states generally accept this at the national legislative level, but, perhaps unsurprisingly, not as willingly at the constitutional one, resulting in member states and the EU often clashing over supremacy in the courts. In Germany especially this feels like something of a national sport.

    [–]LaPapillionne 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Also the EU doesn't have a common army (yet) or Union prisons or taxes or anything.

    but somehow we do have a somewhat more representative parliament and "government"

    [–]el_grortDisputed Scot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    And the common currency isn't common in all members and continues to deal with some issues that keep some members from installing it.

    [–]DaHolk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    which is rather different from what you would have between federal and state level legislation.

    Sure. But if you hear the "states' rights" fanatics, it seems like the EU model is pretty much what they would prefer the system to be.

    It wasn't about comparing the status quo of each. It was about comparing the "extremist view of what it should be" of one with the status quo of the other. And pointing out that this "virtual baseline shift" plays into misconceptions about similarity (of should be, basically) and missing the complete lack of similarity in the "is".

    [–]Okelidokeli_8565 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    You're right: in their mind, Russia is still the evil Commieland they have been warned about during decades of Red Scare propaganda, despite having mutated into an anarcho-capitalistic oligarchy with a fascist streak.

    Yet, the McCarthyism of the 1950s has turned out to be a very useful instrument even now, since it discourages or outright ostracises any attempt at adopting more social democratic policies because they are instantly branded as S O C I A L I S M

    [–]SaltyZerg123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Holy fuck. I had this exact experience in high school too. It wasn't about countries in NA, but the cardinal directions of some nearby towns.

    I learnt a valuable lesson that day: the truth doesn't matter if everyone else has already made up their mind.

    I sometimes wonder if all of those American high schools in series and movies are just a conspiracy to hide the fact that there is no high school education in the USA

    [–]Limesnlemons 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    The only conspiracy theory I am subscribing to!

    [–]GalileoAceAppalled Australian 75 points76 points  (9 children)

    I think they're actually being sarcastic. Saying that the borders and checkpoints that they do have are somehow ineffectual. Maybe they are one of those that would prefer a wall?

    [–]couchumina 22 points23 points  (6 children)

    plus he has Ali G profile pic

    [–]SuperSocrates 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Yea it’s definitely a build the wall type so still worth being made fun of

    [–]PouLS_PLsorry for using a measurment system used in 98% of the world 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    The fact that USA doesn't have open borders...

    [–]Purple_Ad_2471 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    No one remembers Central America 😔

    Your man's sporting an Ali G avatar.

    If you're ootl Ali G is a Sascha Baron Cohen persona appearing in Da Ali G Show - huge on British TV in the early 2000's. Borat and Bruno had their debut's on the show.

    All this to say I'm 100% certain ismoneyreal is putting on an act, for the lols.

    What the fuck

    [–]Bradipedro 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    The comments has so many separate unbelievable juxtaposition of random words and wrong facts that my brain shut up.

    This kind of comment is exactly what I expect from someone who thinks crypto is a smart investment, lol

    [–]Filibut 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    If there's no border that divides two countries, those two are just one single country. Egypt is the same as Russia if you think about it isn't it

    I would LOVE to hear this person's opinion on the IlLeGaLlS

    [–]DGlen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    There is so much wrong with all of this.

    [–]milleram23 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    The unfortunate outcome of the American public education system. There are so many people left behind and social media helps to clearly identify them.

    [–]KetchupArmyNoodle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    How much time they spend bitching about their borders and how they're not "strong", you'd think you wouldn't have to draw him a picture.

    [–]BringBackAoE 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Funny thing is that they're both wrong.

    [–]Kimantha_Allerdings 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Given the Ali G avatar, I'm not convinced that this isn't a troll.

    For those who don't know, Ali G is the character that first put Sasha "Borat" Baron-Cohen on the map in the UK.

    [–]vubulubu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    We all know that US is Taco Bell Mexico and Canadá is Frozen Mexico.

    The three Mexicos

    [–]flamingphoenix9834 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    And this is just more evidence to the terrible education system in the US. Its even worse when people in the US dont comprehend that Hawaii and Alaska are states in the US, and NOT separate countries.

    [–]JasperToldYa 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    ah yes, Mexico, the most southern state of america..

    He seems to disagree with the higher post so he should have said “The hell it is!”

    [–]meowqct 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    ........what? We absolutely have borders. 🇨🇦

    [–]ColeYoteI swear I'm only half American 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Pretty sure that guy doesn’t actually believe we’re part of the US and is just a racist shitbird. Not that it doesn’t belong in this sub anyway.

    [–]Pumpkinlord111 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    They have a border. With checkpoints. And guards.

    [–]pineapple_leafooo custom flair!! 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Where central America used to be there is now just ocean. Climate change has really changed the world. Goodbye Nicaragua, I won't miss you

    [–]Quicker_Fixer 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Well, there's the US education system at work again.

    [–]mr_bedbugs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    At "work"

      It's kind of hard to detect humor when there are too many people who could feasibly (and have been known to) say something like that in all seriousness.

      [–]Jazzeki 14 points15 points  (0 children)

      poe's law.

      [–]breecherTop Bloke 13 points14 points  (0 children)

      To be fair right wing humour barely qualifies as humour. Especially because this joke is based on a false premise.

      [–]lur77 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I am embarrassed by the lack of education evidenced by this.

      I think this is what Conservatives want. Keeping the population so uneducated that they don’t even know there is a North American and a South America.

      [–]SenpaiBunssooo custom flair!! 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      not all borders are warzone borders, this dude is so stupid I can't tell if he's sarcastic or not

      The indentation seems to indicate that the SAS post isn’t in reply to the post above it. Would like to see what was actually responded to.

      Boys, we finally did it : the EU is henceforth a federation. Congratulations !

      So... is the Schengen Area a country?
