As Immigrant Deaths Pile Up, We Need to Find Our Moral Compass

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/06/28/immigrant-deaths-pile-we-need-find-our-moral-compass

to say That Trump is white supremacy is crap----a good number of these people are economic migrants—the mother of the poor man with his child who just drowned even said that he was going to the US to find a job and buy a house–this is not a valid or legal asylum claim–his death along with his daughter is very tragic–but he chose to make the journey and cross a dangerous river–to find a job and buy a house-???and many people are lying about who they are and family relations–and lying about asylum–that it why only 12% are accepted for the final green lite from a judge to stay–and look at the fake families where some of these people are renting their own children to strangers and smugglers—why don’t you check their moral compass—and hand them a compass to find their way back!

Well Merry, you’ve stumbled on to the wrong site. You’re MAGA talking points will have no positive effect here. Do you’re self a favor and learn why so many are fleeing their countries, and turn off MSM, it’s rotting you’re brain.

Leon Festinger’s (1957) cognitive dissonance theory suggests that humans have an inner drive to hold all our attitudes and behavior in harmony and avoid disharmony (or dissonance). This is known as the principle of cognitive consistency.

When there is an inconsistency between attitudes or behaviors (dissonance), something must change to eliminate the dissonance.

“To obtain asylum through the affirmative asylum process you must be physically present in the United States. You may apply for asylum status regardless of how you arrived in the United States or your current immigration status. You must apply for asylum within one year of the date of their last arrival in the United States… ” That quote comes directly from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, “Obtaining Asylum in the United States”. So what’s with all these internment camps for illegal aliens? That is the ultimate bait and switch.

“…----a good number of these people are economic migrants—the mother of the poor man with his child who just drowned even said that he was going to the US to find a job and buy a house–this is not a valid or legal asylum claim–his death along with his daughter is very tragic–but he chose to make the journey and cross a dangerous river–to find a job and buy a house-???and many people are lying about who they are and family relations–and lying about asylum–that it why only 12% are accepted for the final green lite from a judge to stay–and look at the fake families where some of these people are renting their own children to strangers and smugglers—why don’t you check their moral compass—and hand them a compass to find their way back!”

Reconciliation of cognitive dissonance at it’s finest.

As someone who has lived in this country for almost 70 years, I can pretty much attest that beyond superficial niceties, most Americans are the same sort of rot as Donald and his supporters, the soulless Democratics, with a few exceptions, a massive prison system, war, etcetera, Americans and their religious leaders, are really no different than the Nazis, pretty much the U.S. is rotten to the core, each and every single one, with very few exceptions.
