Republicans are afraid the issue will cost them seats in congress.
Democrats have largely figured out that it drives independents into the DJ Trump camp.

Trump will start in about June, right before the DNC national convention in Wisconsin.

"The one promise I haven't kept, not for lack of trying. The one promise I haven't kept, is a WALL. It was gonna be such a a wall. A great, big beautiful wall. Very many people tell me, Mr. Trump, why didn't you build the wall. You of all people know how to build stuff. It was the democrats. It was the Democrats. It was Pelosi. They didn't want a wall

I brought the plans to congress, you know. But she tore them up. She was ripping up the blueprints, for YOUR WALL

Last Mexican presidente I remember is Vicente Fox, apparently he left office in '06. I don't remember hearing that Andrés Obrador was the current Presidente de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos, then again they never talk about Mexican politics on the news anymore. It's like all things Mexican have been turned off since the illegal immigrant issues have been muted lately. You'd think with the election coming up, it would be a main issue on both sides of the aisle.


Thank you for your honesty. The OP and everyone else has it memorized.

When Felipe came to mind it was from Felipe Calderon who was President from 2006-2012.

A lot of us that keep up with the political debates are pretty up-to-snuff with the Big issues including those that affect our national security such as illegal immigration and human trafficking.

It stands to reason most of us would be aware of the political players here and abroad, at least the ones that directly affect our country.

Those that don't get into politics that much aren't expected to know these "details", but a SITTING SENATOR with 13 years under her belt should know who the president of Mexico is.

We pay these damn politicians to be informed enough to do the work of the American people.

You can thank the founding fathers and the people who signed the constitution for that crap.

In a country with a better system of government, that wall would've went up as soon as he put pen to paper.

checks and balances, separation of powers.

always a fight between the executive and deliberative bodies.

Caesar and the Senate
King and the House of Commons
Kanzler und Reichstag
President and the Congress

Same as it ever was.

Legal Latinos are shifting more towards Trump anyway. They paid their dues, and wants those who follow them to do the same. I don't think any of the Democrats want to keep a distinction between LEGAL and ILLEGAL immigrants.


Exactly, like I said. It wouldn't work anyway.

Mostly illegal Latinos support democrats, they're not suppose to vote.

I see zero leadership here.


To the contrary.
The Democratic leadership is kept in power by their voter base.
The problem isn't the leadership.
It is the people who keep putting them in power.
Willful ignorance fueled by the DNC's stranglehold on information on the news channels.
Goebbels would be proud.
I don't blame the voters.
I blame the people who keep them ignorant.


I do, unless their IQ is under 90. It's up to us as free individuals to educate ourselves on important issues, otherwise we are being irresponsible as citizens. Even before learning what I needed to I knew when someone was trying to feed me a line of BS, which is what those so-called "leaders" are doing to their folk every day. They're either willfully ignorant or just plain stupid.

Those are funny. He had a way with getting his tang tonguelled up sometimes. But, I bet he knew who Mexico's president was during the campaign.

Do you know who Canada's prime minister is?

Couldn't resist taking a dig at 43, could you? You do know he is intelligent enough to learn how to fly a fighter jet in the Guard, right? Lots of very intelligent people are poor book students or lousy communicators. Some really good book learners have zero common sense and no street smarts.

Carry on.

Our founding fathers set up a country where everyone could find their dream, no matter what it was, if they just aspired to achieve it.

They also thought that the citizenry would be interested enough in the experiment to keep informed, to keep their representatives actually representing them, to stay on top of things.

Fast-forward to today, where we have an incredibly uninformed citizenry trying very hard to vote in representatives who do not represent them at all, in the hopes that they can, through the government, take care of them because they are too stupid to take care of themselves.

Some days I come on here and try to give the good fight... to educate, to ridicule those who deserve it, to keep the fight going.

Other days I feel like it's fighting the zombie apocalypse, so why not just let them sweep over us and call it good.

Less effort that way, let them take over, collapse everything and then we can finally restart without all the BS.

I guess it's a win either way, although I guess that the people fighting so hard for a Bernie Socialist America don't understand that traditionally, they will be the first group to be thrown into pits and have lime spread on their corpses.

It's hard to fight stupid when at the end of the day you can just sit back and watch them die off in the name of their ideology.

Liberals are not stupid.

They just know a lot of things that are not true.

W not only knew Fox, but spoke Spanish fluently. There is another thing about is Bushisms. He practiced them for years because during his first run at office in Texas, he had the accent and speech patterns of a New Englander and was beat handily in the polls. A little time away to practice....boom Governor.

His normal speaking voice is actually very close to his father’s. You can catch it now and then.

Well, once she's President she will get around to knowing the names of the important people.
Oh wait...


We will forget her name too after elections

Great point! That's why I didn't bother learning anything about most of the Dim candidates. Some dropped out last week, and very few voters knew who they were.


me too

The total driving distance from Kansas City, KS to Kansas City, MO is 3 miles or 5 kilometers. The total straight line flight distance from Kansas City, KS to Kansas City, MO is 3 miles. This is equivalent to 5 kilometers or 2 nautical miles.

The fact that they asked that question leads me to think Mexico knows the Dims are full of s.it.
