I shouldn’t even have to justify this. For a start, the USA is still a huge, influential country with significant global reach. The UK Government is also heavily invested in what happens in America, especially where Foreign Policy is concerned. I am not sure why being educated on a society that is not your own is a bad thing. Care to explain?
I’ve spent a lot of time in the USA. I had an American partner for 7 years and usually spent about 3-6 months a year over there with her. I had a lot invested in the USA, learned a lot about the political and cultural climate and my long term plan was to become an expat. I guess one of the few positives of splitting up from her is that I no longer had to, I suppose.
No, you haven’t got it right. I haven’t even told you my position of immigration. I’m saying that it is immoral and a breach of international human rights law to separate children from the rest of their families as some kind of twisted retribution for something as trivial as crossing a border.
If it doesn’t apply to you, then it isn’t about you.
Most countries in the West adhere to international law and offer the right to asylum as a Universal human right. The USA has recently been sending people away who approach the border to ask to claim asylum.
Apparently pointing out that this is a breach of international human rights law is “biased” and the USA has shat itself in protest by pulling out of the UN Human Rights Council.
The EU Legal Affairs Committee voted for uploadfilters and linktax today. This means the whole thing will go to the EU Parlament at the end of this year. Contact all your national parties who are sitting there to reject it. Ideally multiple times until then.
Yesterday dude was like “You have to separate the families”, today he relented.
He said he had been swayed by pictures of children who have been taken from parents while they are jailed and prosecuted for illegal border-crossing.
I wonder where he saw these images. His favourite show, Fox and Friends, have been pathetically rimming him over this and downplaying just how awful a situation it has been. Just watch those partisan hacks U turn and call this the right decision.
“A South Dakota jury gave the death penalty to a gay man because some members of the jury thought life in prison without parole would be fun for Mr. Rhines [as a gay man]. So they decided to sentence him to death. The Supreme Court has declined to hear the case.”
I guess they were worried about him being exposed to something like this:
That said… even with the gay issue coming into the picture… One can violate a gay man in prison due to the issue of consent. The issue of whether robbery with murder does by-the-letter validate a death sentence in Dakota though would be the final say.
Because if it does… then… well… regardless of bias it’s an allowed penalty.
