Because for me, the number is 1. Yet we've got 40,000 **** people a MONTH streaming across our border and you don't think it's a crisis, just because it's LESS of a crisis than it was a few years ago?
I think you look at the trend, consider what's contributing to it and change tack as necessary. People shouldn't be breaking our laws AND then expecting the law to protect them. You, like Cit and many others aren't looking at the big picture.
And my position on immigration has been quite consistent - immigrate to the US legally and through the appropriate channels. Illegals needs to be sent back. Dreamers should be given a pathway to citizenship. But a lot needs to happen to make that work. A large swath of our Southern Border has a wall, fence, barrier and yet 40k are still coming in each month? Clearly something isn't working and i'm willing to bet it's a heavy mixture of physical security, detection at PoE, personnel (both LEO and judicial) that are the culprits. But all Trump seems to focus on is a wall so that he can placate his base.
Hell - i'd be for giving some sort of amnesty to illegals already here. Bring them out of the shadows, make them legal, TAX PAYING citizens. And bring the hammer down on people that employ them.
And maybe b/c i'm not in a border state and I don't feel the impact - but I don't see any crisis. It's been occurring for decades and only the Manhattan Moron as figured it out?
The man is on record not believing his own DHS numbers on immigration but won't say where he gets his "facts" so what the hell is going on and how can we trust what he says is accurate and informed?
