The official thread of no of course we're not running concentration camps how dare you imply that and even if we are the Democrats made us do it.

There is absolutely no legitimate political reason to concede on the refugee issue.

 

As @PaladinSolo correctly stated in Discord, it doesn't move the needle one way or the other politically.  You aren't gaining ANY Republican/conservative votes by maintaining the Trump caps, so why the hell bother doing it?

There's even history to back this up: Obama was the deported in chief and Republicans hated him (though his skin color might just maybe be a rather large factor in that)

I think there isn't the staff for more refugees. The agency was gutted, ran out of funds, closed a bunch of foreign posts, put on a hiring freeze, and have only just now got a director nominated.  

 

I would hope to hear that from the administration directly though.

If that's the issue then they should say so. They haven't actually given a justification for this decision.

Apparently enough people yelled at them.  Its also possible someone on the inside leaked the previous info to the media to stop them from going ahead with such a stupid idea.

 

That is exactly what it smells like.

We should go back to the old system of "anyone can come here and work, if you manage that for 5 years and don't get in trouble, here's some citizenship." That in conjunction with minimum wage hikes should make everyone's lives better and we won't need shit like ICE camps, border patrols, etc

 

Well, we'd still need border patrols, but they'd be looking for people actually committing real crimes, not going on a walk

Some of the libbiest libs I know are Christian. I can’t personally wrap my head around all the mental gymnastics that must require but they’re legitimately wonderful people.

I don't have problems with religious people in general. I find there's a fine line between people who are religious but have the mindset of "my faith makes me a better person" vs. "my faith makes me better than others. The former tends to be generally accepting of others and their beliefs/sexuality/etc, the latter becomes toxic. I've known plenty of both.
