Ms. Molly Jong-Fast would like the world to know that deterrents are cruel.
That’s right, deterrents: de ter rent / dəˈtərənt / noun – something that discourages or is intended to discourage someone from doing something.
Something like, I don’t know, illegally entering a country.
I’ve been told the point is cruelty and that certainly seems true here https://t.co/Ft5otGlzBi

He must be kidding, right? Do we all agree that climbing over the fence is an optional and voluntary act?
They thought they might not climb it https://t.co/5Eip0ttK4D

Please excuse the sensitive crowd if we fail to garner the appropriate sympathy, for what now?
You … are you trying to shame Trump because people keep falling off a giant wall they shouldn’t be climbing? https://t.co/X7nTr3Jgny

Molly and her crew are on Trump’s cruel border wall.
Oh, wretched world where people suffer the consequences of their choices.
Zero compassion for the maimed and dead who fall from this wall. Actually … anything below zero. https://t.co/fkKotDVlHw

Tell us that the availability of treatment is not compassion.
Too bad that intelligence cannot be improved during a free urgent care visit.
They are idiots to attempt to climb a 30 foot wall built to keep them out.
The fact that this is America means that we take them to a trauma center rather than let them die. https://t.co/1rihsD3KSR

Maybe the wall isn’t deterrent enough. If you really cared about the safety of these criminals, you would encourage them to stop trying to enter the country illegally for their own safety. Stop inviting people to our borders. Stop telling immigrants that our resources are infinite and that existing laws will not apply.
Or, completely ignore their humanity and compare them to birds torn apart by windmills?
We have to get rid of the windmills because they kill the birds.
The wall must resist because human lives are worth less than birds.
This is Trumpism. https://t.co/nejqYjcQqB

Excellent point, if you believe that immigrants are unable to perceive the risk posed by climbing a 30-foot wall intended to stop illegal border crossings.
Perhaps a better approach would be to install an impassable border wall, one that even idiots wouldn’t dare attempt to cross.
The fence should be electric. Problem solved.
Stop invading the country you don’t belong to. https://t.co/NvEn8JJhEL

Seriously, if cruelty were the point a deterrent would not be the approach to our borders. What Molly and her friends are saying is that it is cruel to try to control our borders. It is not nice to try to track down who is entering. It is vicious to provide barriers to entry into this great nation that the left wants to progressively transform into something completely different… but is that another story?
