50k illegals are apprehended per month. Child sex trafficking is a huge problem at the southern border. Illegals bring crime and disease. If they were bringing their best they wouldn't be sneaking in.

This is a crisis. They come here and murder people in my area because sanctuary cities and states allow them to. In my area we have so many hit and runs by illegals. So many drunk driving accidents.

Enough is enough.

While I don't argue the points you listed above.

I think you have a very important angle that a lot of people don't understand.

Your family came here the proper way, and most who do that do not like when others circumvent the system. The jobs should be provided, and rewarded to those who respect our system and rule of law.

The other problems too are that those who come here illegally often times aren't protected by our laws. Just because someone isn't here legally doesn't mean you can abuse them in an illegal manner. But often times, it goes unreported.

Declaring a national emergency to get around the express will of congress?

The bill they passed demonstrated the need for securing the southern border, did it not?
LOL
If congress does not agree with his declaration they can override it, that is spelled out in the emergencies act.
When there is other relief written in the law what will the courts be able to do?

Its also facts and figures that show there is no emergency.
Immigration figures are the lowest they've been in decades.

The only reason trump is going hog wild is because he is in so much hot water and he absolutely needs this wall to keep his base on his side.
But alas the art of the deal seems to be that when they make an offer you stubbornly reject it wait a month and shut down business in the process, reopen your business because that was a mistake and finally when they come back with an even lower figure you sign the deal.

this statement....

Immigration figures are the lowest they've been in decades.

Is like saying my cancer is not as bad as it was last year. NOT ONE PERSON should cross the US border illegally and a wall would be the next step to accomplish this.

This is a great issue to illustrate how the left does not want border security.


It's really that simple.


Good on Trump!

So we should expect him at about what 11:45?

He is never on time. There is no end to his faults.

More than anything else it's the sex trafficking that bothers me the most.

It is rampant and awful and so common as to make you wonder why a big rock from space hasn't wiped us all out yet.

We're trying to have a game of chess, but you keep knocking over all the pieces and declaring victory in a game you're not even in on.

Fly away pigeon. Fly away.

Agreed.

It truly bugs me.

That is why it is painful to see it get used as a political football cycle in and cycle out. I'm not accusing everyone of doing that, but we know that many do.

This is a step, but there is much more to do, and if we do it right, it could benefit everyone. Americans, foreign workers, and potential citizens. I'm not saying let everyone in like some have accused, but rather address a half ass system into something that actually functions in an efficient way.

If nothing else it has gotten everyones attention and everyone agrees the system is broken and needs repaired/replaced.
too bad it seems the current congress does not have the will to fix it.

Chess... ha... that takes strategy.
You're really playing shoots and ladders. Whoops there goes another one back to the beginning.

I come in with a dose of reality and you guys go all nuts. Its too funny really.
