Quite. A pimp who beats his employees is their go-to man in this safe seat.

Nevada pimp wins GOP primary, rejoices with Hollywood madam

Prostitutes claim Dennis Hof assaulted them at his brothels

And let's not forget unabashed neo-Confederates racist Corey Stewart. He also praised virulent anti-Semite and white supremacist Paul Nehlen.

Virginia Republicans just nominated an alt-right hero to run for Senate

Or the actual Nazi in Chicago, or the anti-Semite in California that wants a "Jew free" America. etc.

A grandmother seeking asylum was separated from her disabled grandson at the border. It’s been 10 months.

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/06/12/us/immigration-separated-children-southern-border/index.html

The undocumented immigrant from Honduras sobbed as she told an attorney Tuesday how federal authorities took her daughter while she breastfed the child in a detention center.

When the woman resisted, she was handcuffed.
And they actually have this mural in one of the detention centres... :erm:

Jeez just think how bad that shîthole countries are that these people are escaping from. It's great that US is doing this much to atleast take the children out of that situation. Shame. Point the mother to the appropriate borger crossing and tell her she can fetch her child once she came in the legal way and didn't try and jump the fence.

I know you're just a troll, but literally the first paragraph of the article.

Ten months ago, Maria Vandelice de Bastos and her 16-year-old grandson arrived at the Santa Teresa Port of Entry in nearby New Mexico. The pair told federal agents they were seeking asylum.

Though Vandelice de Bastos passed a standard screening for such claims, known as a credible fear interview, she and her grandson were soon separated and she hasn't seen him since.

...

Despite claims from the Trump administration that it is only separating families seeking asylum who cross the border illegally in between ports of entry and only began doing so recently, Vandelice de Bastos's case appears to prove the exact opposite.

You either have some fake news there or one exceptional case were we only have half the story.

Anyway I would trust the Trump administration to fix this mess more than the socialist that this very people are fleeing from.


Edit:
While she sits in a federal detention center in El Paso, Matheus da Silva Bastos, who has severe epilepsy and autism, is more than 2,000 miles away at a state-run center in Connecticut
Knew it was too good to be true. Fscking leftist complaining because a special needs kid is getting special attention. Wtf

Describing a parent separated from their child for no good reason as "too good to be true"

This is probably one of the most callous statements I've seen on MyBB, and that's saying something
You just made him happier than he's been in a long time.
