Edgarblythe said, "Trump Justifies Gunning Down Asylum Seekers." Idk where that quote was found, but the implication is that either 1) Trump just hates asylum seekers and wants to kill them or 2) that asylum is being abused by the forces that seek to manipulate US border controls so that they can facilitate more trafficking.
Trafficking is lucrative and wealthy drug bosses can afford to recruit lots of migrants to assist their cause, if only to flood the border with migrants to distract the police from their mules and shipments.
First it was 'family separation' that they were using to demonize Trump so as to get back the Obama catch-and-release policy that allowed parents with children to be easily used as drug mules without being detained long enough to extract their 'shipment.'
Now this thing about Trump wanting to shoot asylum seekers is just another attempt to pretend like the borders aren't being abused for trafficking and all the political crocodile-tears about asylum, etc. isn't just more media manipulation to demonize a regime that interferes with drug and human trafficking into lucrative US markets.
That's why I use the term, 'human shields,' i.e. because trafficking bosses drive a lot of migration purely for the sake of having decoys for their mules and shipments. Why no one criticizes them more than Trump idk, unless it is because people are afraid to criticize them out of fear and dependency.
