Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime.
It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.
It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.
It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.
And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America. https://t.co/qhv7Rr1itn

First of all, there is no targeted genocide happening in Honduras, Guatemala, or El Salvador.
The El Salvadorian civil war is over.
These people are not equivalent to Jews escaping Nazi Germany or even Tutsis in Rwanda.
Stop comparing Jewi trying to escape death camps to every other bunch of people who want to come to America.
I don’t remember reading about the Jews on the MS Saint Louis throwing rocks or bottles at harbor police or trying to rush the guards at Ellis Island.
Also, somebody needs to remind Congresswoman elect Ocasio Cortez that FDR turned away German Jews because he was a bigot and Bill Clinton ignored the Rwandan genocide for political purposes.
Her moral high horse is a pile of shit with a saddle on it.
