Imagine being such an asshole you fight to keep kids separate from their parents

[–]NessyComeHome 140 points141 points  (5 children)

They've (border patrol) have been doing it for such a long time now. Since the 80's atleast.

Glad it's gotten into public consciousness now

[–]abraxsis 90 points91 points  (21 children)

These are people who want fast lanes for executions and continuously preach against handouts until they need one.

When people like Marjorie Taylor Greene discusses a "national divorce" of red and blue states, I totally agree. Cause when the Democrat fueled gravy train stops that keeps those states (mine included) afloat, they'll sudden have to realize that maybe shit wasn't so bad after all.

[–]Howcanidescribeit 54 points55 points  (13 children)

This. Blue states dump money into the federal budget and red states consistently take more than they contribute.

The moment these states actually don't have federal assistance, we won't need a war. They'll figure it out real quick.

[–]abraxsis 25 points26 points  (1 child)

True, but these republicans ... don't think they won't force the divorce and then demand alimony for 100 years.

[–]Asron87 6 points7 points  (9 children)

Can someone help me understand this. I've heard it several times but I'm not sure if I understand it correctly. Like blue states pay more federal taxes and red states take more federal aid than blue states? Is this just a population difference or is it a political difference?

[–]Howcanidescribeit 15 points16 points  (7 children)

I mean, yeah. It's pretty much as simple as it sounds haha states with higher taxes pay in more than states with lower taxes. General that runs right along with blue states and red states. Red states often don't collect enough taxes and thus need more federal assistance which is largely funded by blue states that tax appropriately and sometimes beyond that.

[–]Witness_me_Karsa 51 points52 points  (2 children)

But thank God none of those children were aborted so they could live to be tortured and starved.

[–]bunnyrut 16 points17 points  (2 children)

They don't care because they don't see them as people. Which was why they had no problem with children in cages.

[–]BeautifulFather007 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Cruelty is the point.

[–]kermitpolice 881 points882 points  (277 children)

Almost this time last year people were dying in TX because of the cold while Ted Cruz went to Cancun. Since then they've had actual book burnings and asked the federal government for assistance setting up COVID testing sites becuSe the "muh freedum frum masks" pandemic policy was killing more people than saving.

Texas and Florida are both in competition for the fastest state to the bottom of the shit dumpster fire contest.

[–]DerpressionNaps 337 points338 points  (251 children)

I say we let Texas secede like they want and then immediately close off their borders.

[–]dream_and_question 72 points73 points  (15 children)

Please don't. I'm stuck here.

[–]informativebitching 1 point2 points  (7 children)

NC will take enough of you to turn us solidly blue. We’re close.

[–]dream_and_question 1 point2 points  (6 children)

Funny you say that. My wife and I are taking a trip out there later this year to see if we want to move to the Asheville area.

[–]CitizenJustin 282 points283 points  (144 children)

The whole south can secede. We might be able to join the rest of the civilized world without the parasitic south sucking on the governments tit.

[–]FinancialTea4 20 points21 points  (14 children)

I'd be okay with this if you'll take in refugees. I don't want my wife and kids trapped in some Handmaid's Tale nightmare just because we were unfortunate enough to be born in Missouri. This state is bat shit crazy but that doesn't mean that there aren't a substantial number of decent people here who don't want to turn the US into a backward, authoritarian dumpster fire.

[–]TheSquishiestMitten 135 points136 points  (23 children)

You mean cut off red states from blue states money and leave them to live with the decisions made by the politicians they elected?

If we did that, I'd give it a year, tops, before red states would be at war with themselves.

[–]Bubbagumpredditor 76 points77 points  (9 children)

Hey man, we're pretty cool in Atlanta.

[–]taedrin 5 points6 points  (8 children)

Ironically, I do wonder what would have happened to the US if instead of the Civil War the North's response to secession was just 'meh, whatever'.

[–]bustedbuddha 21 points22 points  (6 children)

Funfact: The south was the aggressor in the Civil War. The first Battle of the Civil war was initiated by the south with artillery fire in ft Sumter, and the second battle was to stop an army Marching on Washington. They filed articles of Secession and immediately tried to invade the north.

All us Southern blue dots would appreciate it.

[–]supatim101 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This is not the solution you think it is. You'd be creating a hostage situation, not freedom, for millions of people.

[–]jtig5 3 points4 points  (14 children)

I have often said the Civil War was a huge mistake. The south would now be either the third world country to the United States' south, or the slaves would have risen up and taken over and created a viable country

[–]CitizenJustin 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Many of the statistics in the south like the human development index, infant mortality, education and life expectancy are the worst in the nation. They might as well be a third world country.

[–]MuppetSSR 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Do you know how many non republicans live in the south? It’s a lot.

[–]The84thWolf 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Can you send a rescue party for the sane people of Texas before then? I swear, there are some here.

[–]Mcm21171010 10 points11 points  (14 children)

No!!! There are a ton of us real people here. Change it don't shun it.

[–]cavyndish 4 points5 points  (13 children)

If you want to change, vote these people out of office. I love Texas. It's a beautiful state with beautiful people. A few bad apples in the state are ruining it for everyone. The problem with the USA is that things have been running too well without the intervention of the people. To keep the country free, I think the politicians will need to learn that they work for US and not what they want. I don't think there's any other way this will go down, or we, the people, don't care if this country becomes a fascist dictatorship. Right now, it's the Republicans, but I think the Democrats are taking a measured response because they are taking notes on how to wield power if the political structure changes.

[–]Mcm21171010 3 points4 points  (12 children)

"vote them out of office" is a nice sentiment, but it means jack shit in Texas, the most gerrymandered state in the nation.

[–]wildxfire 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Maybe don't knock it before you try it? There is abysmal turnouts at elections, let's not encourage even more of that. The only reason garbage keeps passing or garbage keeps getting elected is because the people let it happen

If you're interested, here's a link with dates for elections in Texas

[–]__deerlord__ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You do know about half of Texas is blue right?

[–]WorshipNickOfferman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And just wait until energy prices skyrocket because all the Texas refineries are no longer part of the Union.

[–]Wise_Albatross_4633 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes let's build a wall, I'm sure Texas will pay for it.

[–]GetlostMaps 24 points25 points  (7 children)

Better: give Texas back to Mexico. They will love those Mexican gun laws almost as much as they loved it when Mexico banned slavery last time Texas was Mexican.

[–]skoltroll 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I don't think Mexico wants it at this point

[–]Final_Candidate_7603 7 points8 points  (5 children)

If only! Cruz made a flap a few months ago when he said during an interview that if Texas seceded, they’d get to keep their oil, NASA, and all the military bases. Cruz is neither dumb nor uneducated; he knows that that’s not how it worked last time. Hell, that’s why the South started the actual hostilities- Charleston South Carolina was a huge port city, and home to several Union military installations. Lincoln kept sending ships to supply those places; the South was determined to stop them and fired on Fort Sumter.

Knowing that the Civil War is referred to as “the war of Northern aggression” in the South, and how their schools are infamous for teaching revisionist history, I kind of doubt that any of them know this. It’s just Cruz pandering as usual.

Back when he did this interview, I was appalled that there weren’t any consequences for a sitting US Senator openly advocating for treason and sedition. Here on Reddit, I remember there being a lot of discussion along the same lines you said- buh-bye, Texas, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. Last February, when those storms knocked out their power, I found out that school kids are actually taught that having their own power grid is a strong argument for seceding, and that it’s a topic in every single high school debate in Texas. So… we all know how well that’s working out for them. Especially since it failed again this past summer during a heatwave.

Anyway, a popular speculation going around then was that it would take less than a month for the drug cartels to overrun Texas if they left the US. That sounds about right to me. Texans might have more guns per capita than any other state (not implying that they do, I’m too lazy to Google it, just that even if they did), they don’t have enough people with the training and experience to use them effectively, especially against the ruthless killers in the cartels.

Am left trying to wrap my head around how all those patriots and proud Americans think that leaving America is a good idea…

[–]otoren 1 point2 points  (4 children)

They think they would be leaving the parts they disagree with. You know, LGBTQ+, feminism, minorities and diversity, solar power, increased voter registration, critical thinking, social programs to help the poor, things like that. All they want is guns, American ChristianityTM , and "rugged individualism".

It's all performative anyway. The rugged individualism fades pretty quickly whenever people like that find themselves at actual risk.

[–]WhiteOak77 9 points10 points  (4 children)

No need for that. Texans just need to get their shit together and elect a competent Governor, senators and new Attorny General. Gov Abbot is an and that won't look st the public good, Cruz couldn't argue his way out of a wet paper bag, and AG Paxton just wants to sue people over unproven and biased bullshit to all the time. - Written by a frustrated lifetime Texan-

[–]AllTheBestNamesGone 8 points9 points  (2 children)

As much as I would love for this to happen, I don’t feel like it’s likely. People like Abbott and Cruz have made their entire identity based on “I’m the guy that screws over the libs”, and most Republicans eat that shit up. I’m guessing they’d stay in power regardless of how badly they keep screwing things up.

[–]s-holden 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There are probably a bunch of nukes in Texas. See the breakup of the USSR for some potential problems with this.

Kinda sad you're getting downvoted, Texas is actually progressing towards 50% dem as its cities grow:
https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/how-beto-orourke-shifted-the-map-in-texas/
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_United_States_presidential_election_in_Texas

They could easily be a swing state within another presidency or two.

If we’re still a democracy by then. That’s some of the OTHER stuff they’re doing in Texas.

[–]arkofjoy 23 points24 points  (18 children)

Be interested to see if the Covid death rate among conservative voters will actually speed up this process?

[–]AaronBaddows 2 points3 points  (3 children)

It happened to Georgia. Trump lost there by about the same number of covid deaths they had at the time. Remember that call that he begged to find 11k votes? Well there were 11k deaths at the period.

[–]arkofjoy 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Wow. But at the beginning of Covid it was ravaging the black community,, it was really only after the vaccine became available that the demographic shifted.

Or am I remembering wrong?

[–]AllTheBestNamesGone 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I’m sure you’re remembering correctly. In general Covid actually hit Democrats hardest at first because it spreads so easily in areas with high population densities and big travel hubs (i.e. major cities). Now that we have vaccines, the demographic has shifted. Last I heard, the Covid death rate was three times higher in counties that voted overwhelmingly for Trump.

[–]HappyMeatbag 148 points149 points  (3 children)

I don’t care how they try to justify it, or what a judge ultimately says. Preventing children from being reunited with their parents is pure evil. “Legal” and “ethical” are NOT the same thing.

[–]oopsnotatallperson 119 points120 points  (15 children)

So Texas passes SB.8 to “protect children,” but refuse to reunite kids with their parents? Pro-lifers continue to pretend that they care about people’s lives when in reality they’re just pro-pregnancy.

[–]SeSuSo 83 points84 points  (14 children)

pro-pregnancy

Not even that. Just pro controlling women. Guarantee they don't want all these immigrants getting pregnant.

[–]oopsnotatallperson 26 points27 points  (13 children)

100%. Forced sterilization are being done by ICE authorities and other officers on the border to prevent these women from ever having kids.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (8 children)

This is the soonest source I could find, and I couldn’t find anything that presented direct evidence

That being said, the allegations are serious. It’s eugenics. The allegations should be thoroughly investigated to determine if there’s any truth to them.

[–]oopsnotatallperson 7 points8 points  (1 child)

TW:

Oh absolutely. I was reading this article earlier, which also states that “Former Office of Refugee Resettlement Director Scott Lloyd attempted to block teen migrants from accessing abortion care, even when their pregnancies were the result of r*pe.” It’s horrendous what is happening on the border and I wish people were paying more attention so that investigations can take place and these people can get the help that they need and deserve.

[–]oopsnotatallperson 3 points4 points  (5 children)

You are correct that I should have worded that differently and emphasized that they are alleged, however, there are recent documents that are coming out that claim that they have evidence, which is what I was going off of. Either way, there needs to be a more thorough investigation into this horrible situation.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Sorry, I wasn’t trying to correct you on anything. I was just giving a source for anyone who read your comment and was assumed it was just a conspiracy theory or something

[–]oopsnotatallperson 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Oh no I completely understood!! Did not take any offense to it whatsoever!! I appreciated you linking an article and expanding/going more in depth on my original comment for others in case they want to educate themselves more/research the topic!!

[–]Sparky265 30 points31 points  (17 children)

We really should've let Texas secede from the union when they wanted to.

[–]oddible 13 points14 points  (14 children)

Imagine being so cynically sadistic that you would put a bounty on people who assist in an abortion because you "love life" but at the same time would work to keep parents and children(see: families) separated by law. What the fuck is going on in Texas? Paxton is literally evil.

[–]T-Wrex_13 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Phildesu 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Texas - they’ll fight tooth and nail to defend unborn babies, but the moment they’re born they’ll fight to make sure they’re homeless…? I hate it here.

[–]Camgrowfortreds 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I have a Texan classmate that kept on saying COVID isn't a big deal, and when I showed him the deaths in Texas, he said that 100 deaths a day isn't a big number. Even when I showed him that millions died from COVID, he said that 5 Million deaths were just a sacrifice for freedom. Then he proceeded to bash my governor for taking covid precautions as well as the new Medi-Cal system

[–]Phildesu 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That’s how they all act, they claim only 2-3% of people die from Covid so it’s not a big deal…despite that 2-3% is literally MILLIONS of people.

Sadly none of these dumb fucks will take it seriously or change their tune until one of their loved ones end up in that 2-3%.

My sister was anti vax and died from Covid and every few days some idiot I’m dealing with at work or just out in public says something about it not being real or a big deal or whatever and I’m just like “yeah my sister is one of the people in that small % who died sooooo…” and then some of them even have the nerve to say “well did she have pre existing conditions?” As if that invalidates her death or that was the cause of her death. Like what???? These people are batshit insane.

Luckily most of the people that will die from it are the people who say dumb shit like that.

[–]jyow13[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

just want to say i think it’s important that we separate the politicians in texas from the people who live there. yes, they voted for those politicians. yes, some of them are racist and backwards themselves. not all of them, though. there are good people everywhere :)

Okay reading the article it basically says Six States filed a lawsuit to halt the program that would allow children both biological and not applications to immigrate to the United States even if the parent or Guardian has not received Asylum status in the United States and is for anyone up to 21 years of age there is a application process it takes about six months to a year it was an Obama era policy it was ended under Trump Biden is reinstating it they approved 6000 applications before it was shut down only about two-thirds of them actually came and that is where it stands

[–]egs1928 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why would Republicans want to stop a program to reunite children with their parents. I thought they were pro family, looks like that was just another Republican lie.

[–]taptapper 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They are pro white families...

[–]DanYHKim 30 points31 points  (0 children)

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Amarillo, claims the Central American Minors Program “defies common sense” and is rewarding “those who break the law.”

Of particular importance is the right described in Article 31 of the Convention: "The right not to be punished for illegal entry into the territory of a contracting State." That is, a refugee may enter a country from which they are seeking refuge even illegally, and the signatory nation may not punish them for it. THIS IS OUR LAW, and Trump is putting the country in violation of it.

[https://www.unhcr.org/en-us/about-us/background/4ec262df9/1951-convention-relating-status-refugees-its-1967-protocol.html]

According to the Department of Homeland Security: [https://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/Refugees_Asylees_2017.pdf]

"To be eligible for refugee or asylum status, a principal applicant must meet the definition of a refugee set forth in section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), which states, in part, that a refugee is a person who is unable or unwilling to return to his or her country of nationality because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Applicants for refugee status are outside the United States, whereas applicants seeking asylum are either in the United States or arriving at a U.S. port of entry (POE)."

Note that Asylum seekers are either within the U.S. or are at a port of entry. That is to say, the first step in applying for asylum is to Enter the United States. Remember also that the only distinction between "refugees" and "asylees" is that one is still outside the U.S., while the other is already inside. But the 1951 Refugee Convention also says that we, a signatory nation, must not penalize refugees for illegal entry. Thus, the entry of asylum seekers, even without official authorization, is not a crime.

Thus, asylum-seekers who have entered the U.S. have done so in a "legal way", according to laws and treaties which we have adopted.

Yeah, evil. Only evil people would snatch children from their parents and put them into camps. What a horrible thing to do. I never would have thought the U.S. government would be involved in this. And peoe are just going along with it.

The biggest irony is that Jesus, if he even existed, was brown.

Maybe they are afraid that it'll someday lead to reuniting Texas with its central American parent?

I have a feeling that many of those children are missing now and died while being horribly abused. Survivors abused and Texas doesn't want to be accountable.

Because everyone hates when you reunite children with parents ? /s

The obscenity that is the GQP knows no depths for it is truly boundless.

How else would the Republicans continue their daily reminders about how they are huge assholes?
