    You obviously call it 'privilege'. I can't make heads or tails of the question as it's posed. Would you like to try again?

    The cartoon doesn't help either. They never do.

    Seeing Tude Dogs U.S. Border Crossing - Has any one seen this Migrant Caravan marching through mexico on their way to the U.S. ?
    There are thousands expecting to cross into the U.S. @ 7-8 thousand.

    I don't mean to high jack Ahso's thread. I just caught a portion of this Migrant Caravan on our noon news.
    Where's Trump - what on earth are we going to do with all these people? Again!!

    I see this is going nowhere, but I am bored.

    Something to like Jim Crow? Same concept that is hard to beat.

    The whole thing is about what one's DNA means concerning heritage.

    To me such a concept is contrary to human value.

    Seriously, reread your question, it's senseless. Sorry, but all we have to use here are words (and cartoons for you). Learn how to put the words in an order that conveys a lucid thought or idea. That's all I'm asking for.

    I think the number is somewhere around 4000, but even so, most of them will likely find something else to do along the way.
    We have a lot bigger problems in this country than a few thousand immigrants wandering through Mexico.
    But Trump and company would have you fretting over them than watching his gut the US economy.
    If you want to be really scared, you should probably go read the Reuters feed.

    Correction: So, it's grown in the last day or so.

    Still, a few thousand people in Mexico are a lot less of a threat than what is going on in the rest of the world, I think.

    Weary migrants still far from reaching US border

    It is a real tear-jerker story, truly sad. By itself is more a story of how we have lost control of our own borders and nothing said about the cost to us citizens who pay for such uncontrolled relentless migration. A mob approaches, illegal immigration continues as usual.

    OH, BTW, who first started those poor folk walking and just who are they?

    Trump's missile treaty pullout could escalate tension with China

    Another news story to choose from which grabs one's attention from what truly matters.

    The point of the story was that this "mob" is very far from our border, with a very long way to go, and hardly a threat to our existence.

    Had you actually read the story, you might know some answers to those questions.

    True, There are far more pressing matters that our dear president might find to occupy his time, if he was truly concerned with accomplishing anything useful. Though somehow, stirring up China and Russia seems that it might rate a bit higher on the scale than a bunch of poor people wandering through Mexico.

    Admittedly I did not read it carefully. Gave it a second look and I didn't find what I was looking for. I'll just take it that it was all just spontaneous, or with little or no organization.

    Sure it is far away and by itself is no threat to our existence and only came up because of the coming elections. It wasn't all that long ago a similar mass assault came to our borders. It has been a problem for seemingly forever. Not a small problem for many of us who live(d) in border states.

    I really hate picking on our southern border illegals as many flies into our country just to overstay their visas.
