A capital idea! Why don't you just stay the hell out of a country you hate and avoid them entirely.
The world would be a better place if more people thought like you. Unfortunately, a lot of them would very much like to come to America because they shat in their own countries and now they're unlivable.
Hello, dumbass. If you lie on the customs form and blow up a bus full of Jewish children, you can be charged with lying on the form and easily deported. Without this offense, there are a million ways that tricky asshole lawyers can keep you from leaving America. You know, the country you desperately wanted to come to since your home country is a shithole.
These laws have been a thing for a long time now. There is a checkbox on tax forms that say, "did you earn any of this money from criminal enterprises?" That's how the nailed Al Capone in the 1930s.
It's astounding to hear educated people try to excuse Hillary like this. If it were a Republican candidate that pulled the same shit, you'd be all over it like stink on shit. And then pull Trump into it and make a false equivalence, a well-known logical fallacy.
Nobody "chose" Crooked Hillary for the Democratic nomination. She stole it with fraud. Didn't you read the emails? Let me guess: no. Because they'd shatter your precious worldview and we can't have that.
No, this was before mass sequelitis infected the movie industry and ruined it. Sequels were something special, hadn't been overused to death yet, and it was doubtful there'd be another Trek. Leonard Nimoy HATED playing Mr. Spock and wanted to be done with it, forever. Kill off the character, finished!
Of course, it's easy to say something like that TODAY, what with tvtropes and such. But let's not use today's eyes to look at what people expected in the past.
Responding to a complaint about a strawman agrument by constructing yet ANOTHER argument out of straw? "having an open mind and a balanced view is a crime"? WTF? Who said this? 
You have zero self-awareness, don't you?
It doesn't happen too often, but I sometimes need to search my old emails for keywords. This is gold, I can find information that I needed from five, six years ago. One search and kablammo, there it is, dated, timestamped, with the recipient's information right there. Moreover armed with this new information I can go up the chain of emails and see what was happening before then. I tell you it is gold and has saved my ass more than once.
Moreover this summary rings all the warning bells of "hipster douchebag who is infatuated with novelty and wants to discard useful tools in favor of NEW NEW NEW for no damned good reason." Barcelona-based filmmaker, are you kidding me? SO TRENDY. "Nomadic" team? The whole digital nomad thing is SO TRENDY. "they manage to find a stable wifi connection"? Seriously? Even the worst third world crap countries have 3G that works perfectly well for compressed voice messages. Sending and receiving. But the really damning one is the last: "You can hear in someone's voice how they're feeling." This is a sad, desperate cry from someone who is isolated and craves human contact. I think she just needs some real human friends from her own neighborhood.
In fact if you read again, it's not about if email is the right tool for the job. The whole thing is a whimpering paean to human connections. You need voice contact, just make a phone call. BUT apparently that's too much connection, it's scary and confrontational. These poor people...I really pity them. You might think I'm being sarcastic (projection!) but I'm not. They have the same social needs as every human, ever, but their culture tells them that this is a creepy thing and is wrong.
"How do I love thee? My accumulator overflows."
