You are an idiot if you think that a wall is going to stop gang violence in the US. The wall is going to make gangs disappear? With a wall in Texas Chicago will be safer? You are an idiot.
Stiglich, the majority of Americans oppose building a physical wall; the MS-13 doesn’t care as they have a myriad of other ways to get here. Stop lying.
Perhaps Stiglich is suggesting the wall is needed to keep us from exporting our gangs to other countries since MS-13 originated in 1980’s Los Angeles. Otherwise this ’toon would be just one more lie to pile on top of all the other lies The Rump and his cronies continue to spew. What a waste of perfectly good art supplies.
Oh look, Schumer, Pelosi, and Trump. Or is that Stiglich on the right? Family portrait?
Tomorrow’s installment will show the good guys; Trump, Putin, and a hooded member of the KKK.
The most effective deterrent to illegal immigration has consistently proved to be stricter enforcement of laws against hiring noncitizens not eligible to work in the US, and stronger penalties against employers who violated those laws. Donald Trump opposes such efforts, because he and his white collar crime family are career criminals in this regard, from the illegal construction crews who built Trump Tower to the many members of his hotels’ housekeeping staff who his businesses cover up to benefit from lower wages.
This is so dumb, it isn’t funny. Tommy has obviously bought into the sick, twisted lies that serve ONLY tiny’s malignant narcissism.
Did you notice after the Democrats won the national election by over 10 million votes, all eyes were on the House? Poor tiny was bereft of the attention he sickeningly believes he “deserves” as a psychopathic narcissist.
So when all talk was rightly on the new House, what did tiny do? Something stupid to refocus attention on himself. It’s part of his psychopathy. Sick, sick, sick.
Liar, liar! Oh you don’t ever tell the truthLiar, liar! Can’t nobody see you’re fireproof?
The MS 13 bit is rather old and tired. The real scourge is the Republican in the oh-so white house.
Stiglich suffers from what conservatives like him claim liberals have: Derangement Syndrome. Only it’s the Democrat-Derangement Syndrome.
You have to admire Stiglich’s ability to ignore reality …
Border control has been a continuing issue for decades. Many decades. Mostly, Republicans and Democrats have worked together on legislation on this issue. This certainly included funding and construction of physical barriers, in places where it was agreed that these were necessary, Ms. Pelosi and Mr. Schumer have been in Congress a long time. Both have certainly participated in this process.Mr.Trump, on the other hand, appears to be completely ignorant of words like “participation” and “process”.Mr.Stiglich appears to be gut-reacting along the lines of “Trump – thinking”. Again and again…..
Racist right wingers do nothing but lie.
If I understand it.. you need a wall to stop folk from crossing into the US and shooting people.. MANY people evidently get shot from these undocumented folk that cross over.. find a gun and shoot someone.. Have you ever considered an alternate solution… perhaps.. make it harder to get a gun.. Just a thought
Manafort’s handing Trump’s polling data to a Russian spy = collusion.
The deficit is climbing again under Trump and McConnell.
BTW: Trump has had two years to accomplish this, so why is suddenly an emergency?
Why do Trump Disciples like Stiglich lie about EVERY issue?
Ms-13 could get by without without a border wall. It wouldn’t really fetter their operations; most drugs are carried in in trucks, few of which are checked on the way in. However, a wall might give the illusion of safety.
Tom Didn’t Go Far Enough. He needs to double down on the racism and depict the 5 and 6 year old children both boys and girls as being tattooed members of MS 13. That just shows how illogical the whole thing is.
By The Way ICE arrested 4,000 terrorists ( on the no fly list) trying to get entry into the US ALL BUT 6 WERE AT THE AIRPORTS maybe we need a wall around Logan and Kennedy airports.
1 The wall is an expensive 3rd century solution to a modern problem. It can be overcome by a LADDER
2 most illegals come in legally and overstay their visa the wall wont stop that
3 most criminals try to gain entry via airports and border stations
4 most illegal drugs come in via ports mail and legal shipment of other goods in Vehicles. No one is carrying bushels of drugs to cross in the wilderness of Arizona on foot.
6 the land the border sits own is owned by us landowners. To build a wall will required CONFISCATION of huge parcels of territory that will be held up in court for YEARS I though you guys didn’t like the federal government grabbing assets of Americans
Why are Stiglich’s opinions based on total distortions of reality? Has #45 hypnotized him?
For a guy with his leanings, he should change the little icon next to his name. trump with his thumb in his mouth while holding a flag blankey seems to show he leans another direction.
Have conservatives noticed there are barriers at the southern border in places it makes some sense. There are other areas where additional barriers of some sort might make sense. trump’s proposal is unfeasible, uneconomic and unmaintainable.
I still maintain, to halt the dwindling crossing of illegal immigrants, (I noticed trump changed it to migration in his speech) stop hiring them.
Prosecute the drug companies making opiods.Block the chinese exporters of fentanyl.Shut down backwoods meth producers.All possible without a wall.
Lie Lie and Lie again… The right is truly pathetic now. Thats what happens when you sell your soul for some tax cuts.
Mr. Stiglich, how about you stop trying to make me pay for that wall you want, and just throw some money at that GoFundMe?
If that is what Republicans truly imagine is reality in their minds, I understand why they want a wall so badly. Even when imagined, fear is powerful motivator…especially for the ignorant.
Oldcat: You didn’t answer Twclix’ questions, listed above. We’re waiting.
Copied from a friend.
This is what is on my mind. . . .Donald Trump’s most consistent campaign promise — to build a wall on the United States’ southern border to keep immigrants out — will be a waste of time and money, the head of the Customs and Border Protection agency told ABC News in a final warning just days before leaving office.“I think that anyone who’s been familiar with the southwest border and the terrain … kind of recognizes that building a wall along the entire southwest border is probably not going to work,” Gil Kerlikowske, the commissioner of the CBP under President Barack Obama since 2014, said shortly before leaving office last Friday.Over the course of the race to the White House, Trump’s wall idea became more than a simple policy proposal.Repeatedly featuring in Trump’s speeches and the chants of his supporters, the idea of the wall in many ways came to capture the zeitgeist of his campaign.
And it’s an idea that persisted through the race and afterward, even as other proposals were altered or dropped.Just 37 percent of Americans support building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released last week.Kerlikowske said that supporters of the wall are missing the real issue when it comes to the immigration inflows that they are concerned about.“[Immigrants] can come right up to our ports of entry. All our ports of entry, of course, are open. That’s where we have our commerce,” he told ABC News’ Brian Ross. “People can come up to those ports of entry, as they are doing now, and turn themselves in and ask for whatever laws they feel will protect them.”In his wall-building pledge, Trump vowed to do it on the cheap.“I would build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me — and I’ll build them very inexpensively,” he said during his campaign launch.
Ah, we have the CONtrolled tooning today.
Tell us, oh foolish ones, just WHY would bootleggers want free access to alcohol?With free access there are no bootleggers!
Why would human traffickers want open borders?With open borders there are no coyotes leading people across deserts to avoid the Border Patrol!
Why would drug traffickers want open borders?With open borders everyone would bring in their own contraband and the price would plummet.
Why would ANYONE who makes money off of DIFFICULTY CROSSING A BORDER WANT AN OPEN BORDER?
That image on the right has to be the product of total derangement, it’s exactly opposite to reality.
The people who want a pre 1965 border are the migrant laborers. Who aren’t drug smugglers or human traffickers. They just want work.
And we get an early contender for “dumbest strip of the year”, and it’s the 9th of January.
Excerpts from the 2008 Democrat Party Platform
We cannot continue to allow people to enter the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked. The American people are a welcoming and generous people, but those who enter our country’s borders illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of the law. We need to secure our borders, and support additional personnel, infrastructure, and technology on the border and at our ports of entry. We need additional Customs and Border Protection agents equipped with better technology and real-time intelligence.
We realize that employers need a method to verify whether their employees are legally eligible to work in the United States, and we will ensure that our system is accurate, fair to legal workers, safeguards people’s privacy, and cannot be used to discriminate against workers.
For the millions living here illegally but otherwise playing by the rules, we must require them to come out of the shadows and get right with the law. We support a system that requires undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, pay taxes, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens. They are our neighbors, and we can help them become full tax-paying, law-abiding, productive members of society.
Definition: Infrastructure; The basic physical and organizational structures and facilities (e.g. buildings, roads, power supplies) needed for the operation of a society or enterprise.
In this case the “enterprise” is border security and the infrastructure is a physical barrier. Similar to what the Dems proposed and/or voted for several times since 2006.
There have been physical barriers along the border for decades, some natural ones like the Rio Grande, thousands of years old, along with the Sonoran desert and mountain ranges. Man-made barriers, fences and yes walls in high occupancy areas, are also decades old. Waht doesn’t work well is, well, walls. See-through is important for surveillance, and electronics are far better than wire or steel walls/fences. The only real alien crisis in America may be Trump’s fondness for foreign wives and chain migration with them.
BTW; as Las Vegas proved, we need better barriers to prevent white guys from buying bumpstocks, and other firearms designed specifically for killing large numbers; of humans. Immigrant crimes don’t come anywhere close to matching “home grown”, whether rape, robbery, terrorism, or other violence.
Ahhh! Nothing like a Stiglich cartoon to inoculate the brain against reality!
Par for the course here…We have a horrible anti-truth cartoon by Stiglich. Check
We have @alwayswrong batting 1.000 at being always wrong. Check
We have @Andylit needing to be told to shut the &#$% up. Check
We have conscientious and thoughtful people trying to explain reality to conservatives who live to defy reality. Aaaand Check
Alright…Who’s got political cartoon BINGO?
Quit replying to trolls like @alwaysright and making them the top comment!
Just like yesterday, Stiglich uses some well-worn cartooning techniques. Today, he employs the tactic of portraying a people with whom he has a problem as not-quite-human.
Thomas Nast used the same method over a century ago, but rather than demonizing Latinos, his target was the Irish:
