Bwoglines: Just Really Over It Edition

As a new Monday is upon us, it’s time to celebrate with Bwoglines and truly reflect on whether or not you should protest against mandatory attendance.

Happening in the World: At least 220 people have been arrested since protests began on Friday night in Egypt against the rule of President El Sisi’s government. Protests occurred for the first time in six years as the younger generation has taken to the streets in defiance of a ban against demonstrations. (The Guardian)

Happening in the US: “Storm Area 51” fails to materialize as about forty people gathered around the gates before being confronted and dispersed by law enforcement. One arrest was made, but it was for public urination and not freeing aliens. (NPR)

Happening in New York: The UN General Assembly begins today as streets are closed to traffic on First Avenue from 42nd to 48th street. At this year’s general assembly, the Secretary General is asking leaders to come up with and debate plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45% over the next decade and net zero emissions by 2050. (CBS)

Happening on Campus: If you like sports, politics, and controversy, Professor Frank Guidry is holding a talk today titled, “Sports and Politics in a Time of Political Polarization,” placing today’s fights for political equality in the sports arena “in historical context by revisiting the 1960s and early ’70s.” Register Here!

    @Anonymous If you are an illegal alien, you have no right to be here. Go back and wait your turn.

      @Anonymous do you have any fucking idea how impossible it is to “wait your turn”?

      i’m sure you wouldn’t be able to legally immigrate to america and “wait in line” (especially not if you were chinese or indian) so be fucking grateful that your mom popped you out on this side of the ocean you anchor baby

        @Anonymous That is not an excuse to break the law. I don’t speak for OP, but I was born in China. My family came here when I was 6 legally. It’s not that hard. You just have to be patient.

          @Anonymous tell the indians with advanced degrees to “be patient” and wait 150 years for their green cards (https://www.cato.org/blog/150-year-wait-indian-immigrants-advanced-degrees)

          yeah look just be patient navigate this (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJDIZagXUAAggaj?format=jpg&name=small) system

          i mean, tough shit. my parents are chinese immigrants too. i, however, recognize that i am one of the extremely lucky ones to have made it here.

          additionally, nobody supports immediate citizenship for undocumented immigrants. we just want a path to citizenship. they would still have to “wait in line”. letting over 10 million undocumented immigrants come out of the shadows and continue to live fulfilling, productive lives as Americans isn’t unfair to anyone.

          In conclusion, anyone who says they’re “only against illegal immigration” is lying because if so they would join me in supporting reforms to drastically simplify the immigration process and increase legal immigration.

          Deporting undocumented immigrants is brutal and cruel and over-the-top punishment for what? a visa overstay?
