More fairy tales from the open borders advocate. He has no credibility because he won’t compromise on any aspect of the immigration issue. Criminals and terrorists are welcome so far as he’s concerned. Criminals and terrorists contribute to the economy his fictitious libertarian model.
Unfortunately the libertarian model breaks down when you give illegals welfare benefits. Those immigrants who came here legally are not happy with the illegals because they will drain their communities dry. You can not support a crush of people who can’t speak the language, must live off the state and come here waving the flags of their home countries. Immigration must be orderly and selective.
I support immigration reform, not open borders. AS, Nancy Pelosi and AOC are all in complete agreement.
If your economists can boost the GDP a fraction of a point they are happy as clams. They don’t give a tinker’s damn about public health, public safety, national security or wage suppression.
Your arguments that this is why we need to fix our immigration are true but meaningless. They are meaningless because will never pass in the Congress until the border is controlled. We’ve been fooled too many times in the past.
Even if your argument that illegals commit less crime were true (which it isn’t) letting in one murderer is one more than would have occurred if we had stopped him from coming in.
Oh yea? That’s not what you wrote when I spent the better part of week debating you on this issue. You put yourself in a left-wing box while you spouted that Barry Goldwater would have supported open borders. If you want to get out of the box, you can start thinking about national security and families who have lost loved ones to illegal alien criminals who have gotten help from sanctuary cites who won’t turn alien criminals over to ICE but let them lose instead.
It’s not fair to burden pubic school districts with large numbers of illegal alien children who can’t speak English and require special education. Where are the rights for native born children who deserve an opportunity to get a decent education? There are only some much money and resources.
The illegal caravans are thumbing their noses at us now because they know they have a blank check to do whatever they want when they cross the U.S. border. I don’t want to bar everyone from immigragrating here, but we can’t handle everyone all at once, and some who are coming here to sell drugs, commit crimes or commit acts terror have no right to come here at all.
It is interesting that you still have not addressed the issues of national security, illegal drugs smuggled over the border and crime. You always ignore those issues when I cite them. It’s the way politicians avoid addressing series issues that don’t have easy answers. Cory Booker does this repeatedly.
The usual inadequate response that I have come to expect from you. I spend writing a response, you write two words about national security and crime. Pathetic response!
As for your little ivory tower, libertarian friend’s video, he’s living in a dream world.
Welfare reform? The last time that was done was over 20 years ago during the Clinton administration. It’s not going happen with this bunch of socialist Democrats in control.
Get a majority of votes from the illegal aliens? How is that going to happen when the Democrats come to them and say, “We’ll give you open borders, a guaranteed income, free health care and free housing.” All the Republicans have is, “We’ll give you a shot a job and opportunities.
When they have had a chance to vote, these people have supported Hugo Chavis and Daniel Ortega. Then their lives went to hell, and they decide to come to the U.S. When they get here there is no reason think that they aren’t going to support the American versions of Chavis and Ortega – AOC, Pelosi, Omar and the rest of the socialist Democrats.
A better legal program does. That’s the missing element.
The wall doesn’t control drugs or guns; so why would it control people?
There’s a lack of proof-in-action for your statement OD, and I think you know about those faults.
We had an immigration program that worked and illegal immigration fell to just a few 1,000 a year; then the Democrats and the Unions re-wrote our immigration laws, resulting in illegal immigration exploding to over a million a year again.
The lesson is clear; it’s the quality of the system that determines the outcome. You don’t see countries with good immigration systems have this problem.
Ah yes, another Liberal fantasy; here is how it goes.
ALL illegal weapons and drug transporters are diligent in registering their activity in triplicate with various government agencies so the United States can have accurate and reliable statistics to offer as an argument against border security; as a result of these conscientious drug and gun dealers we (your friends in the deep state) can assure all Americans that a wall is simply not needed in the interest of National Security.
We also have rock solid numbers on how many illegal immigrants are in the United States and we (your friends in the deep state) can assure you with equal certainty that there is nothing to be concerned with and so a wall is not needed for this concern either.
Pay no attention to your surroundings if these statements of absolutely unquestionable statistics seem to contradict what you see all around you.
We are the government and as such we never speak with political motives and we are your all knowing source of knowledge & understanding.
I love that you guys genuinely don’t seem to know how ridiculous you sound when you portend to know things that you can’t possibly know.
