Of course you can. Read them. If the content says "I proclaim today national brums day", it is soft content. If it says "Illegal aliens get special treatment", it's not so soft.

I can take a crack at the wall question. Since he's going to make Mexico pay for it, he doesn't have to ask Congress for money so no grunting, dodging and weaving from the lying Capitol Hill jokers. The building part he can take care of in his sleep. It's going to be a really high one, he has promised. It's going to be YUGE!

I think The Wall could be a great tourist attraction on both sides of the border, if handled creatively/artistically. It could be The Wall National Park on our side. Not sure how Mexico names its parks.

If the law was enforced, E-Verify would block them from jobs and they would have no reason to stay here.

That's just how easy it is.

As far as a border wall, that's a matter of regulations. As you can see....



...the US government already has a fence, and all it takes is an Executive Order to change the parameters from a fence to a wall.
Wall?

How about a dam?

Dams make money!

Dam the flow!

The same old deflection.

1. It is NOT the AMOUNT but, what they DO!

2. I suggest you look up Executive MEMORANDUMS.

You won't make yourself look so uninformed and foolish.

[quote=Ellis Bell;42977900]He doesn't have to worry about keeping his promise, not that he ever would.

What we know about illegal immigration from Mexico | Pew Research Center

I read an article that said, more were leaving the U.S. than coming in ... if this trend keeps up people will have to find something else to be outraged about. The issues are endless, so I doubt there will be a problem there.

Seriously though the politicians running for POTUS they have these stats.

I have always wondered, where do these numbers come from?

Did Pew go out and find them?

How were they counted?

If we can count them, then it should be a no brainier that we know who they are.

If we know who they are, it should be easy to arrest and deport them.

"if this trend keeps up people will have to find something else to be outraged about"

IMO, a silly statement.

They are leaving because they CANNOT find work.

When the economy recovers, it hasn't yet, unless we improve our ways of keeping them out, they will just come back in the same way they came in the first time.

I believe there is a story where one illegal killed a girl in Ca. and he had been deported several times.

Why was it so easy for him to get back in?

You are also talking Mexicans I assume? The Mexican immigration rate has been net zero since 2009. Let Trump know that, ok?

Trump is not predicting self-deportation like Romney did. Trump is promising to round people up and deport them. They get hearings. His fans are eating it up--isn't this half his campaign?
"You are also talking Mexicans I assume?"

Why would you even MAKE an assumption like that?

There are illegals from all over the world coming in through Mexico.

I "assume" you think that just because they come through Mexico, that they are Mexicans.

Default How is Donald Trump going to"build a wall" and end free trade when he becomes president?

when he becomes president...

Let's don't get too far ahead of ourselves.

And the Donald has been very evasive in explaining how he'd get almost any of his big ideas implemented. He keeps saying vague things about making favorable deals that apparently no one else has the ability to close.

But he does make broad sweeping statements that appeal to lots of folks. He is, after all, an entertainer.
