If they didn't need to change, you wouldn't have multiple U.S. administrations using tear gas all across the border to deter people who may or may not actually be claiming asylum. Trump is continuing something that has existed long before either of us were around.

What the U.S. needs is much better procedures in place to deal with and process asylum seekers. But if hundreds of people are all pushing and trying to force themselves in, chaos is the only result you are going to get.

In all seriousness, let's establish some consistent standards. Because whoever is gonna be sitting in the Oval Office after Trump is likely going to continue to use tear gas.

You can’t accuse me of lacking for hate for Obama. He’s a war criminal right wing militaristic nationalistic thug who deserves to be killed. I’ve been clear that I ****ing hate him so don’t go there with me. (Please)

I think you need to look at that article again.

Lol. I'll take Tim Pool over the usual networks. At least he does his due diligence and isn't bankrolled by people I'm sure we can agree are bad for news.

It does a great job at illustrating the longstanding engagement issues we have on the border. We've probably been gassing asylum seekers this whole time and just not reporting it.

Uhhh, it's not a "great job" of an article. Like I said, you need to really look
at the what (and especially, the when) of it. Please sharpen your analytical
skills by yourself. I'm not going to tell you anything more about it.
It's actually pretty comical despite the believers.

I think you should try taking your own advice. There has been consistent use of tear gas for years, dropping off in 2015-2016 some. The point is, this is not a new thing. Oh, and go watch Tim Pool or someone equally credible who reviews multiple news sources on any given subject. You need to evaluate a few different sources of information on these stories, especially the emotionally charged ones where all available information isn't being put forward.

If that’s your point ros it’s unimpressive. If you have something to say stop being cryptic.
