Us Politics For Betting (Not Talking About Politics)


Recommended Posts

I’m mostly just in awe that something like 40% of Americans now fully believe that $5B to build a few pieces of wall is somehow synonymous with border security and will somehow keep them safe. Because obviously the billions in illegal drugs that come into the states is just walked across the border, and all the private airstrips and ships that actually transport it will be magically stopped by a wall.

 

Dale’s post about executive powers is interesting, but it’s more interesting to me just how shockingly stupid you have to be to think a mother****ing wall is going to do anything, and how insane you’d have to be to think the guy who completely ignores actual ports of entry, immigration rules, removes financial regulations, destroys relationship with actual governments, strictly divides Americans on cultural, religious, racial and political lines and stops paying federal employees is the one who actually cares about national security because...he wants to build a big wall.

And if you don't want the wall, you welcome undocumented immigration and think there is no problem with it.

 

I usually take 20-30 mins each night and watch David Muir (ABC World News Tonight) and read up on the day's happenings. I then take the next 2 hours to try not to be pissed off and want to punch people in the face.

The more this immigration and wall thing drags on, the more I think its just as simple as republicans not wanting illegal immigration because it will lead to more democratic votes

and the democrats wanting the opposite for the votes

 

All the other stuff on either side is just smoke

I’m not agreeing with either side or policy however if Democrats want more support and maybe win the White House they better get better people than Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. If Nancy Pelosi said she was a Leaf fan. I might switch my allegiance. That’s how much she annoys me

the Stephen Miller wing wants no immigration whether legal or illegal and not just because of the votes.

 

The US like Canada needs immigrants since it's hugely beneficial to our countries. If the immigrants were coming from Ireland and Germany the Stephen Miller wing wouldn't have a problem with immigration.

I don’t know who Miller is but that’s a stupid argument and view he has. I think most sensible people like me want illegal immigration stopped. That’s not a right wing issue. It’s been preached from Clinton to Obama to Schumer.

Stephen Miller is the guy writing Trump's speeches and formulating American Immigration policy at the moment.

ok, Miller is the main force behind White House immigration policy. He wrote that lie filled address that Trump gave on TV the other night.

 

This statement is 100% accurate.

no Serge it's not. There were multiple verifiable lies in his address where he just made up statistics that are wrong. Facts are facts.

Everything is cool. Just a major right wing commentator, on cable news, calling for the dissolution of democracy and the establishment of a literal dictatorship. Nothing to be alarmed about

I raise.

 

Border Patrol union deleted 2012 webpage opposing border wall

 

A union that represents Border Patrol agents recently deleted a webpage that said building walls and fences along the border to stop illegal immigration would be “wasting taxpayer money.”

Do you doubt the accuracy because it doesn't support your argument? Also, I said USA, not California. Also, it's accurate.

of course it's accurate. It's a well known verified fact. There is no disputing that it's true.

Most undocumented immigrants didn't enter this country through Tijuana, where news cameras have captured images of thousands of immigrants seeking refuge during recent months.

 

And they didn't enter near the border town of McAllen, Texas, which the president visited Thursday during the 20th day of a partial government shutdown fought over constructing additional barriers on the Southern border.

 

When it comes to people in the country without proper documentation, the majority of them didn't cross the Mexican border at all. Most of them came to the United States legally — but then don't leave.

 

About 700,000 travelers to the United States overstayed their visas in fiscal 2017, the most recent year for which the Department of Homeland Security has published figures. DHS estimated that, as of Sept. 30, 2017, the end of that fiscal year, more than 600,000 of those travelers were still in the U.S.

 

During that same year, there were just 300,000 apprehensions along the Southern border, according to Customs and Border Protection — the lowest number since 1971.

absolutely, if you travel a lot into the US, you know from US CBP questioning their number one concern is that you will be leaving the US once you’re there. They want a return ticket, proof that you have funds to travel home. They DGAF what the hell youre going to do, they just want to make sure you’re going to leave.
