I'd agree that the muslim ban is xenophobic considering the countries targeted, but border policy is necessary as a matter of function. And don't go giving me that elph argument of "Germany is just fine without it" because we are not Germany. The US is not in a position to take on a bunch more people right now, it's not xenophobic or racist. We have enough problems with the lower class that aren't being addressed and you want to take on a bigger burden?

For the record, I don't agree with the wall, and I think people should be allowed to come here, but they need to do it through the proper channels. And you completely ignored my question about border policies in Canada/Mexico. Are they xenophobic/racist?

I say that it's driven by racism because his justifications for the wall was to keep the rapists and murderers out, not because of any (although outlandishly overblown) real world issues that we see from immigration (which aren't exactly the fault of immigrants, but that's another convo).

We are not analyzing his justifications. We are analyzing the policies themselves. And I'm still waiting for my question to be answered.

That's not the question I was talking about.. I asked 2x now if the border policies of Canada and Mexico are xenophobic/racist towards Americans.

Ah, didn't catch that. I think that Mexico's border policy is not racist because it is essentially nonexistent lol. Canada's might be, I don't know much about it. What do you think is racist about it?

Nothing. Border policies are not made to keep out specific people. They are made to keep out everyone unless they are approved to enter because they serve as a tool to keep that country's systems functioning. If Germany has open policy that's great, they either don't have enough people migrating to matter or they have systems in place to deal with it. We however do not, it's just that simple.

When Canada enacted a weight limit for entering Canada I thought that might be a little racist towards Americans tbh
