Almost everyone I know is against allowing illegals coming into this country. The majority of them do not mind proper immigration with people being conditioned to live in our society, but most agree proper vetting is necessary.
Most of the comments on the MSM articles are saying illegal immigration is not good, there is only about five to ten percent that mention that illegals should be allowed. Now if the vast majority of citizens say that illegals are not good, why are we even considering leaving them come in. Ten percent of the people do not rule this country.
It used to be that the small amount posted on social media on MSM articles while the vast majority did not say anything, but now, the truth is showing up in these comments sections. The Congressmen just read the comments made by the left ant assumed everyone thinks that way, it is far from reality, the vast majority of Americans, both Democrat and Republican, do not approve of illegals sneaking in. I know lots of Democrats, most of them are against illegals sneaking over the border and most of them believe they should definitely NOT be allowed to vote. A small number of far left are commenting a lot, after all, that is what the far left do in order to increase their numbers. But they are now getting drowned out by the vast majority who state, disallowing illegals into the country is not racism.
We cannot allow the far left to brainwash our congressmen any farther, their radical liberal outlook is not good for our nation or anyone's country. The middle needs to speak up and put an end to both far right and far left activists brainwashing society and disrupting civility in their respective countries.

We need to face the fact we created the market for the drug cartels and possibly even helped politically.
It is time to face that we are huge part of destabilizing central America with trillions going to cartels over decades. War on drugs not so much a war on drugs....
It may be time to talk about taking out the cartels like we would terrorists in Pakistan.
