    The Trump administration has decided to deny Bahamians Temporary Protective Status. This is the naked cruelty of nativism writ large.

    Bahamians are British citizens, so the Brit government should be offering full protection to these storm victims.

    We are providing some support and protection, but the number of homeless is so great that I don't think we have provided enough support.

    Can you justify why they would want TPS just to come to the US?

    The British is one of our closes if not THE closes ally.....We ought to help them without even a thought. We've asked the British people to send their sons and daughters to help us combat the Taliban and have asked them to shed blood with us, why not provide protection for the people. This is horrible all around.

    Apparently that's Trump's fault.

    Perhaps you heard the news about a hurricane. It was in all the papers.

    These people are literally fleeing for their lives. This is not about taking in permanent refugee, this is a temporary situation, that is in the name, Temporary Protective Status.

    From the Bahamas it is thousands of miles to England but less than 100 to the USA. Not granting Bahamians TPS is inhuman and clearly racist. It should be considered genocide by neglect, the Pontius Pilate ploy.

    And when Trump does grant them TPS in the next few days I think the right thing to do will be making an "I apologize to DonaldTrump for Repeating This " thread.

    If we all do a GoFundMe for the Bahamians, in your name, would you donate the money for us?

    The question is as pathetic as the sentiment behind it.

    Lovely rhetoric, that.
    As I read it I gulped and choked back a sob, and a tear fell from eye to keyboard.

    All I said was that Bahamanians are British citizens, and that does mean that support and protection should start with us.

    Well, your fine President gets so much heat for such enormous amounts of silliness, about-turns, blah blah that in the end it becomes the norm, even fun, to blame him for everything.

    After all, the bloody hurricane was his fault, something which the OP has missed. If your President had bothered to order a few nukes in the right place all this wind could have been diverted to Europe, or even England, to Kent, possibly, even to little Herne Bay and Mrs Badger could be stewing tea up over a fire made from our roof timbers.

    The cad! :p

    No, it's not Trump's fault, but they could have just told him that the Bahamas was part of Alabama, and he would have let them come to the US.
