We keep hearing from Democrats and the liberal Media that the figures on illegal immigration are exaggerated or overblown for political purposes. If that’s true, then please tell me how many ILLEGAL aliens are a tolerable number for you?
Democrats and the liberal Media seem to talk like illegal immigration is not a big deal. They say we must not overreact to “immigration,” but conveniently ignore the word ILLEGAL.
So how much “illegal” immigration is tolerable? How much of any ILLEGAL behavior is excusable to Democrats and the Media? How much crime, in general, is acceptable?
Since Democrats have voted for border security in past Congresses, should taxpayers trust the Democrats to “secure” the border in any form or fashion now, today, under this administration?
American citizens must NOT excuse and reward illegal immigration under any circumstances, including because of age, poverty, and fear.
If the Democrats don’t want a border wall, then they should end the magnets that bring and keep illegal aliens in the U.S., including public benefits, rights, and privileges. Also, deport all illegal aliens as quickly as possible.
I was born and raised on the border, and there has always been an “unsecured” border, but not as bad as it is now.
Is there a “crisis” at the border regarding illegal immigration? Yes there is, and we must SECURE the border and stop and discourage all illegal immigration.
