For vertically challenge, couldn't you just pack the canon up with confetti to help with the off size?

Seems smart to me. We could go green with this, dissolving confetti

The President is exactly right,

For months the Democrats mocked the crisis on the border.

Then they sought to REDUCE detention beds.

Then they refused additional funds for the Border Patrol and ICE.

Then they refused to reform the asylum laws.

Then they refused to fund additional physical barriers on the border.

Then they refused to fund more immigration judges. And now they blame the president for the disaster they’ve created and still refuse to fix it, and their media mouthpieces go along with all of it.

A few weeks ago I watched a senator or congressman ( I think his name was Cotton??) state something very simple.

If after the so called "asylum seekers have been all the way through the process "( over a million have been ordered to leave) "and government officials STILL wont do anything about it then WHO should be deported??" ....

Illegal lovers seem to like our legal system until it doesn't work for them.....

As it was with every one else that wanted a better life then what they had in what ever country they were from my family did the right thing when coming to America we followed the law/rules and guess what we got to come in (the legal way). There's a reason a STOP Sign is in place its to have some Order at that spot.

Most every other country has some king of a wall/fence its there to keep order in place and for the same reason we have a "NOT COMPLETE WALL" that needs to be Completed. My family did the right thing why CAN'T THEY ?.....

Trump is there to stir up the Status Quo, hes a Business Man let him run our Country the way that a successful businessman does for his own business. My last couple of lines is Not a political statement its what I see.

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Yup--well said.
of late many people speak of 'Nationalism' as a bad thing. This comes from ignorance. In the world, such as it is and has been, 'Nationalism' is a requirement of a strong cohesive society.
There is nothing out there to replace it. It along with the other variables of 'like minds', provides a sense of community and belonging. Humans need such.

Without these things, folks have no sense of being anchored. This is very bad for the human being.
The results can be seen all over the landscape.

This is not difficult stuff to understand.

I ran into one of the " Looking for a better life" central American senora's today at Sams club... She was holding up the exit line as "unpaid" for items were being removed from her shopping cart.. Lady who checked her out told me their were 9 unpaid for items.. Mama cita said they must have "fallen" into her basket.

I wish I would have been the first one behind her.. I would have encouraged a phone call to ICE or the police...
Send em back

any immigrants who enter legally should be seriously considered,, any illegals who entered through any means other than a border crossing, should be deported immediately...

our tax dollars should be spent here on america and American citizens... the govt,, has appropriated out earnings in the form of taxes,, before we see out earnings,, and in the amount they choose,,, and vive billions of dollars to places and people I wouldn't p on if they were on fire..

In 11th grade I was friends with a student from Italy. He told stories of his family assembling Bic lighters in Italy in the evening. They were employed, but it was only a living. Their dream was to come to America and prosper. Must've done good because this was in Maplewood, NJ. Anybody know those wealthy people. Dianna Ross had a house down the street from us.

Anyway they didn't plan to come here broke and did what they had to do to make the American dream possible. Immigrants should be welcomed, but if the only contribution is being able to swim a river then they should be deported.

Back in the '90's I worked in Northern NJ, had a bunch of legal immigrants working for me. They came from all over the world, mostly to escape socialism. A couple from Poland, Portugal, Cuba and Eastern Europe. Those guys worked their azzes off, and from their attitude you could easily see that they were happy to be here. They did their best to "Americanize" themselves, and the few that had completed the process to become citizens would proudly let you know that they were Citizens! I affectionately refered to them as my "Grints". Every one of them were worried about Clinton as President. Can't imagine what they thought about Obama....

Sooo, I heard on talk radio the other day that the US lets in appx 1 million LEGAL foreigners per year??? I think its still that way, or it was not long ago, many states are under 4 million in Population??? Lets take Oregon.. I believe they are appx 3.5 million... So its OK to create a new state every 4 years or less???
WAY TOO many people coming here even legally.... Why cant these people fix their own countries????????

It's hard to "fix your own Country" when the US funds rebels to destroy your Government and ruin your economy. We are reaping the seeds we sowed for over 50 years in Central America.

The saddest part of this whole discussion is that every one of the people in this conference is the descendant of an immigrant. Throughout the existence of the USA there have been "waves" of immigrants - England, Ireland, Poland, Italy, etc. This wave is from Central America.

Instead of bitching about people coming over the border you should be bitching about why the Government isn't doing anything about the bottleneck in processing immigrants into Citizens so they can become productive members of the USA, and work and pay taxes. No, nothing gets done because they tend to register as Democrats when they become
Citizens, so the Republicans refuse to address the problem. Better to throw them in cages than to give them the possibility to vote against you.
