    Count on the GQP to attack everything Biden does, with OR without justification.

    Are the “Republican” state legislatures finally going to put effective laws in place to punish the people who hire illegals to stem the flow? Or will they continue to aid and abet the illegals but blame the Democrats?

    This has been a “crisis” for decades, mostly because we don’t want to welcome people fleeing oppression and danger, at least not if they aren’t white. If we had not screwed around with their governments over the years, they might not be in need of fleeing. If we had not I acted such draconian immigration policies in the past, there would not be such a backlog, nor would we be incapable of processing them. This is the result of decades of racism and xenophobia, and even though they think Biden can instantly make America a welcoming country again, a lot of that is too complex to happen overnight.

    President Biden hasn’t rolled out any welcome mat. Peoples fleeing horrible conditions in Central and South America, though, recognize that there is no longer a lying, bigoted, racist, xenophobic president in office and they might have a chance of gaining entry into the U.S. and achieving a better life.

    Buenos dias! Pick up your free health care and education certificates at the border, board the bus and head for the major city of your choice where you can file for unemployment compensation while you wait for ‘good paying green union jobs’ to appear. In the meantime, you might invest in a little body armor because the city you will be transported to has a much higher violent crime rate than the country you came from.

    Population growth in the USA is declining, but somehow we have no room.

    Most of the illegal immigrants are here because they came in on a legal visa and overstayed their time on it. There are also many that get here through ports of call and airports. Not all of them come in through the gates at the border.

    How many “illegal” immigrants are here from Canada, Israel, Ireland, Britain …?

    The operative word here is “films” – the visual portrayal of a made up narrative.

    The GOPQ and their lackeys like SillyBilly will blame Biden for rising food prices and other commodities that benefit from cheap labor. Yet they continue to fight permitting entry to those who will toil in the agricultural fields and slaughter houses.

    Sure they care about the American people. /S

    As for the porosity of the border, the GOPQ needs to tell us about how many decades ago was it “under control”.

    The U.S. has interfered with Central American countries for over a century, leading to much of the violence there. We should consider it our obligation to take in their refugees.

    DACA allowed people that were brought to the U.S. as children to come out of the shadows. They have already been educated, many joined the military and/or gone to college. They were required to have a clean record. It doesn’t make any sense to deport people to a country they do not know instead of allowing them to stay and contribute to U.S. society and economy.

    The Republican* base has NEVER figured out that it is businesses of all sizes, including multinational corporations, who have imported hundreds of thousands of ‘illegals’.

    For an example, see Muddy’s post above mine.

    Where did that wall come from? If you look past the gap, it’s certainly far more substantial than anything that tRump built during his infestation of the White House.

    @MuddyUSA

    Be afraid, be very very afraid of all those messkin brown people!!

    They’re comin’ to rape yer cattle and steal yer wimmin and take away yer guns and spit on yer hamburgers and putcha into FEMA camps!

    Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

    Quick! Fill up the bathtub with water, gitcher guns, and turn to channel 12!

    Jeez, Muddy. Get a grip. Like tabby said, above: “Immigrants are coming to WORK to produce our meat, bread, vegetables, roofs, etc. They don’t qualify for welfare, Medicare, housing, food stamps and especially not votes.”

    They also pay taxes, including Social Security, for which they have no benefit. And no, you fool, they don’t (expletive) vote unless or until they are a U.S. citizen. And there are no “anchor babies”; any child who by birthright is a U.S. citizen would be deported along with their non-citizen parents, and only that person would be allowed back into the U.S. when they turn 21.

    Then again, asking you to stop spreading your xenophobic lies and misinformation is useless, as you enjoy your implacable hatred of most of the people in this country.

    Why not. The GOP financed the 2018 midterm migrant caravans.

    Republikkkans would prefer that immigration be limited to White people, and are content to have children at our Southern border be left to die in the desert.
