I have answered every criticism with facts and data, and you continue to rejoin with appeals to your personal authority and anecdote. I don’t know what else to say about that. Yes, many thousands die fleeing to the US. Perhaps you ought to look into the history of utter devastation the US has wrought in the countries they are fleeing from (take Honduras, as an example from the recent caravan ‘crisis’. But really take your pick from any SA country).

I’m not some ‘high on his horse’ college grad who thinks he has the world figured out. But I aim to arrive at my politics with objectivity, apart from MSM propaganda and myths about American exceptionalism. Globally, the US is increasingly viewed (and has been for some time, this isn’t about Trump) as the greatest threat to world peace:

This is easy to forget when living in the US. We are a global empire. And yet, we fail to afford basic liberties to our citizens that are taken for granted elsewhere in the developed world.

I do not think you have argued in ‘bad faith’, but I do think your judgments are clouded by demonstrably false mythologies. It is clear no minds will be changed here though.

Good luck to you as well.
