Re: National Emergency

Canuck, I am not one who believes things just because some "leader" or politician or actor or media says it is so.  Yet, the illegal immigrant situation has been labeled an "emergency" by "leaders" prior to Trump, at least before Trump was POTUS.  Very little had changed since then.  Contrary to what Pelosi, Schumer, or some media outlets might say, the situation itself did not magically change when we elected a new POTUS.  Variations in the numbers depend on location, people organizing the "caravans", tolerance of the countries being crossed, and what they're hearing about the difficulties of getting in once they are at the border.  If things don't change, it has been anticipated that as many as 5 million intend to come to the US during the next 12 months.  Most of the process has been neither orderly nor legal.  There are some who would say to just open the border or "legalize" it and move on -- most of those in favor of doing nothing about illegal immigration do not live near the border, or anticipate that they benefit from this in some way, or wrongly anticipate that they would be unaffected.  In a perfect world, people would respect the laws and borders of their neighbors, without a fence.  Obviously, this is not a perfect world.  For decades, regarding our southern border, we have needed to fix the problem, control the problem, and/or change the laws.  While I am not necessarily a Trump supporter, I do applaud his efforts to mitigate this problem.  If people want to come to the US, that is great, yet they should attempt to do so by legal means . . . they should respect our borders, our laws, etc. . . . and, if they are here legally on a temporary basis, then they should re-apply and/or leave when that legal authority expires.

Re: National Emergency

Check a few news sources, reliable sources not just those you agree with, and you will find the number off illegal immigrants is down in recent years.

I think it is also shown that the total number of illegals living in your country is down.

Also numbers indicate more come from countries like Canada by many other entries other than the Mexico border and stay.

 

An emergency is something that is happening immediately and obviously these border crossings are not an emergency. If it was then why did your dear leader not get financing for his much touted wall before the change in party majorities.

Seems obvious to thinking people that your dear leader is trying to create an 'emergency' to buy himself more votes in a 2020.

 

Look at things in reality not just following someone else's beliefs and then just believing yourself.

so far, Canuck and bob44 haven't proven they are anything more than parrots, too.

Re: National Emergency

Of course the number of illegal immigrants is lower because there are more sanctuary cities where they can hide in.

Re: National Emergency---presidenrtial impotence

Nancy made the orange one blink prematurely and he has found he can't perform.

 

Fluster and bluster and it is all somebody elses fault.

 

Probably losing some of those 242 pounds would be helpful, as would some psychological counselling.

Re: National Emergency

And how does that make any sense?

With those 'sanctuary cities' there should be more immigrants because they would have someplace to go that they would not get picked up and sent home.

 

It really would help if you stuck to reality and not just believing in things that suited your beliefs.

Re: National Emergency

I'll type it again real slow so you can understand.   The number of REPORTED illegal immigrants being caught is lower.....BECAUSE of sanctuary cities that are allowing them to be hiding there.

Re: National Emergency

Numbers from a sanctuary city would be higher since they are protected it will be easier to count them.

 

Just saying................
