The Justice Department announced Friday that it is implementing a “zero-tolerance” policy for prosecuting those attempting to enter the U.S. illegally -- the latest in a series of measures by the Trump administration to combat illegal immigration.

Good. what more can we ask for beyond the existing laws being enforced. I think even the Liberals cannot complain about that but I'm sure they will.


This is such a ridiculous debate.
We have honest people that get in line, fill out the paperwork, pay their fees and bide their time with fingers crossed that they will get a green card.
We also have deceitful trespassers that try to sneak into the country and hope they won't be caught.

Both types of people have hopes and dreams of a good life in America but there is a right way and a wrong way to do it.

People that start off their American Dream by breaking the law are prone to break the law down the road because they have nothing to lose whereas the legal immigrant knows that if they break the law they could be sent packing.

Why are the Dems so crazy to protect the illegal aliens while turning their backs on legal immigrants and citizens?

I think it's mostly about votes for the Democrats. They are pandering to a group of citizens that don't want their friends and relatives here deported and want the flow to continue from their ethnic/national group. Some illegal aliens are known to vote and they vote Democrat also.

It's getting to the point that these illegals trying to cross will be labeled as invaders and shot on sight. The situation is very sad. South American countries need to get their acts together.

Oh no, you don't get it. Shooting them would be counterproductive.

Allow me to call your attention to two data points.

1) Illegal crossings are actually way down on the average.



2) Trump made big promises during his campaign to the private prison lobby in return for big contributions. But since crossings are way down, too many empty cells.

This article is from months ago. CNN: Private prison industry sees boon under Trump administration

Now, connect the dots.

Actually, if you read the link I provided it said that illegal crossings are up 203% since March of 1917.

No, they cherry picked numbers to make it look much worse than it is. The numbers this year are just about even with this time last year except for just the past month. March is traditionally a big month because of the warmer weather. Plus there's a big humanitarian crisis going on in Honduras right now.

Here's another chart showing the monthly breakdown.
