Those who point the finger will not lift one to change or enforce a law they would rather break.

sw - entirely correct - much easier to chastise and blame those trying to force change and deal with
problems that have been decades in the making. Without dependence where would all those new voters come from?
Wish people would study up on Mexico's immigration policy. Why aren't they being held accountable for
the lack of security on their southern border. Do these "asylum" seekers ever ask Mexico for that?
There must be reasons why Mexico lets them pass thru. Reconquista policy??

Marxist politics uses the huddled masses to conquer institutions. It is an orchestrated operation from within the US before it ever gets to Mexico.
US immigration should not even be involved with this orchestrated stunt. No one has legally applied or qualified for immigration status. They should be turned away at the border especially as children without parental supervision. If they intend to enter as vacationing guests, they should be able to show means of support with parents and a visitors itinerary.
Enforce the law.
Political power brokers in the US should not be allowed to use the poor or any country and especially children to create an opportunity for political change. It is the worst kind of treason.
The press has a right to publish with freedom, but that does not give it authority to conspire in criminal activity. The press and our political educators dance dangerously close to conspiracy way too often. I do not believe for a minute that either of those groups is as naive as they like to appear. Criminal activity hiding behind children, bought with the promises of "security" in the US. Promises not made by The US or its laws, but by political opportunists rebelling against their own government and conspiring to create law and regulation to assist for political goals.
Conspiracy to overthrow a sitting president of the US hasn't been seen since Lincoln was shot, and never in a scale close to what we are witnessing. And just like It's predecessor SDS, the Democratic Progressive Leadership will loose support and position of respect over its radical activity against the rule of law and the voters right in the US. The world is watching and will chear when the flagship of democracy decides that a man without the stink and strings of political control can become president and actually think and speak for himself and his country. And not just his "party".
I agree that folks should study up. This is a special time in history and agriculture is being affected by the imposing of political power and law creation through trade and has been for 30 years. Free trade was nothing of the kind. Nothing free about it for the US.
If we were told in 1975 about the tech industry coming it would have been unbelievable. But not near as unbelievable as the fact that the world would rely on China to build its components. That is just a one aspect of manufacturing we lost in the US to trade since Clinton was elected and Al Gore invented the internet.
China does not need to steal any thing or idea from the US. They have US politicians working in their favor. We have traded them into great manufacturing power without regulation while we have crippled the US manufacturing with extreme regulation. We have paid an extreme price for "free Trade". It wasn't free.

Most of your crops are exported.... mexico, japan, china, and many others.... when china enter the wto...it created demand for soybeans... at the time the us was the biggest producer..fast forward to now...answer this who's the biggest producer of soybeans now? And remember their government doesnt use subsidies...wise up and realize that our president has no clue of the consequences this can create...the economy doesnt get better overnight... it takes years to get out of a downturn....are you willing to ride the wave? Or are you wiling to change the course? Soybeans should have never gone below 9.00....oh wait, the china tariff kick in tonight...lets see how many cargoes get cancelled in the next few weeks... when china starts diverting purchases to South America...
