You have never seen me argue against people being deported. my problem with the wall is that it wont work.

Most illegals overstay their visa, they dont cross the Rio Grande under the cover of nightfall.

Two things to me that were bigger reasons was immigration/border security, as well as a stand against liberal identity politics and political correctness. Just "jobs" alone is far too generic a reason for any candidate to win the presidency in these wildly divided times we live in.

Ditto. I also adore his backing of the military and LEOs, as opposed to those chanting that they want dead cops.

The wall won't work, hey? No, most illegals are border jumpers not visa over stayers. The wall will address the former and a better tracking system will address the latter.

There is nothing ugly, racist or heartless about enforcing our immigration laws. It would put Americans back to work and we wouldn't have to spend $113 billion a year supporting illegal aliens nor would we have billions being sent out of our country by them which isn't spent in our economy. Less crowded schools, jails, hospitals, roads and neighborhoods. It would put respect back into our immigration laws. Illegal alien isn't a race it's an unlawful status in our country.

Since we pay for delivery of anchor babies of the illegals, usually a minimum of 4 each, they are a faster growing population. The delivery of anchor babies and in some states, from conception to delivery by way of the taxpayer, is giving them an unfair advantage. I know many US citizen blue collar workers cannot afford to have more children. It's the math.

Pandering to a faster growing population means voters in the future.

Listen, I don't want to see most cops shot but those that murder and assault are no better than the perps they are trying to chase after and NEED to be held accountable for their actions. If a perp isn't grabbing for your gun or wielding a knife, DON'T SHOT! What kind of idiot thinks we should use deadly force unless deadly force is very likely to be used on you.

Beating hearts need food, water, and shelter to keep beating. Funny how that works.
