    I don't like to just talk of Africa, and south of the Sahara in general. No, I'll talk about the Third World in general.

I haven't reached that stage yet.

But yet Hillary Clinton is proposing it and is being feted, praised to the heavens for such a compassionate plan. The Democrats are wiping out their own people. That's why they need open borders for replacements to be brought in ASAP.
