If detention conditions at the border are bad

shouldn't this be freely shown and discussed? Seems like it could be used to shame self-righteous Republicans into spending the money necessary to fund immediate improvements.

Always answer "border crisis" questions this way.

These asylum seekers are fleeing countries which have been flooded with guns and ammunition originating in the USA.

Our value system here in the USA places a high priority on the abundance of guns and ammunition.

The consequence of such abundance of arms is rampant violence and criminality throughout our hemisphere for which we must bear the blame.

When populations flee the threat of violence in their own countries due to a problem we have created, we have a moral obligation to grant them asylum.

It is the cost of freedom, and a cost which we as a nation have bargained for.
