What utter nonsense. There would always be legal ports of entry and exit at our border. Talk about fear mongering.

Yeah. Odglory, reality can be scary.


Oh, really? All Republicans are obnoxious wealthy people? You lefties never miss a chance to stereotype and be insulting of the right, do you?

HA!

This is what happens when you watch too much conservative talk TV.

So Trump doesn’t have as a big problem on his hand as we thought. No need to “round them up”.

Sorry, Pew has a stellar credibility, and would never lower themselves to what you suggest. It is one of the truly unbiased polling and research opinion organizations.

Go find another place to where your tin foil will work. I am SO embarrassed that my fellow conservatives are not only swallowing this crap, but spewing it with regularity.

And you stepped around my main point that self-deportation is not something to be laughed at. It is a viable instrument.

Did see that as your main point, but a denigration of Pew Research. I would not have commented otherwise.

No, they Western Union the funds home every Friday after they get paid. The forms are printed en Espanol and have a large Mexican flag in the background.

I don't buy it. Most Mexicans come and go. Now that Christmas is here they will go home for 3-4 weeks then return.
I don't buy it at all. I'll buy it when I go grocery shopping, and there's not groups of 15 of them, arguing in broken English to the clerk about something that they should be able to get on their SNAP card, and holding up the flipping line, all of them yip yapping to the frustrated clerk who has nothing to do with setting rules for SNAP, I'm sure.

Illegals can live here easily by living several in one house and they do. They access our welfare coffers through their U.S. born kids. It supplements their income. They get free healthcare, etc. In many cases they are probably living better than your average poor American.
How can you be so sure?

----and this is why a federal withholding tax should be imposed on all out of the country's money transfers.
