freddyV: But, subby, you forgot to mention that Cindy Axne (D-Ia) is also in a tizzy over this.
Somacandra: freddyV: But, subby, you forgot to mention that Cindy Axne (D-Ia) is also in a tizzy over this.She's pretty much the only D in the HoR from Iowa. She knows this is not a winning issue to back here.
schubie: imagine coming from a beautiful lush place in Central America and ending up in Iowa.
Bennie Crabtree: schubie: imagine coming from a beautiful lush place in Central America and ending up in Iowa.Imagine the contempt an Incan potato farmer from their beautiful, irrigated, bounteous, thousand-year-old terraced Andean farms, staring at the literal shiatpiles Iowa passes off for potato farming.
schubie: Who the fark works their farms and meat packing plants? Christ imagine coming from a beautiful lush place in Central America and ending up in Iowa. Iowa exists to make Wisconsin feel better itself. Iowa is a less exciting Nebraska. Oldbraska.
AAAAGGGGHHHH: Iowa doesn't have DP
sinko swimo: read TFA. she's right.
C18H27NO3: Right off the bat I'm going to claim ignorance on how this whole thing works because it makes no sense, RE: alienating children from their parents by keeping the kids and sending the adults back across the border.It's farking madness. If ANY other country tried pulling that same shiat with American citizens then it would be farking war within a day.I must be missing something.
brap: Bob Ray (the Republican I actually admired) welcomed 1,500 Tai Dam refugees despite rumbles of protest in the state. That was back when I was proud to be an Iowan.The Iowa Bureau of Refugee Services is the only entity run by a state government that is certified as a resettlement agency by the U.S. State Department, which in my mind's eye is a great legacy.This woman is an embarrassment.
