What we see here is incentive upon incentive to migrate illegally, with no end in sight...at least until these Central American countries empty out. Then the Lefties can start crying about how overcrowded the public school system has become. Yet the deniers continue with the false narrative of a “manufactured” crisis at the border. Stand up and take a bow, border wall opponents.

this will allow every Repub Senator up for election to have to answer why they want to take poor folks insurance away.
Repub cruelty and spinelessness on full display...
Sounds a lot like Bernie Sanders. Guess The Bern and the other presidential hopefuls will also have to answer why they want to take employer insurance away. Rest assured, Medicaid will always be there for the "poor folks". Have to admit, Dims have always been the best at "throw grandma off the cliff" fear-mongering.

Isn't it interesting to see that when something "hits home", many suddenly turn against it.
Many liberals seem quite sympathetic to higher taxes in other countries, but cry foul when it directly affects them. What's good for the goose....

Everyone knows that open borders is an incentive not just for illegal immigration, but also for child-trafficking. That is going to lead not just to more unwed mothers and their kids making illegal entry, but to cartel members ramping up their child kidnapping and human-trafficking operations, given that nobody has to prove that that baby on her hip is actually hers. Every border crossing with a kid would mean instant catch and release. Every child of an illegal border-crosser would amount to a free ticket in. Guess the Dims are happy with that.

Who knows if there is something with her husband causing her to bring her children with her.
That should never be an excuse to kill children. Assistance can be obtained through government agencies or from friends who can guide her in the right direction.

I am so tired of hearing people pretend it is about a woman's HEALTH.
News Flash: You are not sick when pregnant. No illness is being cured or treated by an abortion. Things worked exactly as they were designed and were put into motion when the woman allowed the man to impregnate her. No miracle or fluke involved. Take a look at a 3rd trimester ultrasound before sentencing that little unborn child to death.

......Schumer has been firm on immigration for at least 12 years, and that the Democrats are still firm on immigration now.....
They are now even posting evidence that shows how the Democrats have been consistent on this matter for over a decade, and yet continue to repeat their delusion.
Strangerland, let's get serious. Democrats overwhelmingly supported border security in 2006, when they were trying to retake the House, but after they took over government they showed they didn't mean what they promised because they never funded it and had every opportunity to do so! Yes, that's real consistency.

It feels so unreal to realize that a man like him is still the president of US.
Don't worry. The Do Nothing Party will spend all of their time (and taxpayer money) on trying to impeach him.
85 investigations lined up already. Still waiting for Mueller to come up with something..... anything.

2019 looks bleak for Trump and the Republicans
You may be right. It could be very bad for the Republicans if the obstructionists do nothing other than hire lawyers to conduct the 85 investigations they plan to carry out. Then again, doing that could make 2020 bleak for the Dems...

Trump had two years and all the branches of government to fund his wall.
Not entirely true. While the Republicans did have a majority in Congress, as the Democrats well know, the Republicans did not have 60 in the Senate which is needed to pass a bill.

Not interested in the blame game. Would like to see any positive solutions the Left has to offer. Oh, that's right - there are none.
Once again, we have to take the Democrats by the hand to show them that much of what Trump is doing at the border is what the Obama administration did. The Obama administration shot tear gas at migrants at the border, they separated children from adults at the border, and guess what; migrants died under the custody of U.S. immigration officials. In fact, a total of 18 migrants died under the Obama regime. And most important of all, Obama wanted border security when he was president.
But we never heard a peep from the Left about that.

How many more shutdowns are we going to face with this idiot in charg?
Probably just as many as the Democrats initiated. Guess they have short-term memory: The last shutdown was led by Shumer over the DACA debacle. Oh, by the way, weren't the Democrats in favor of a border wall/barrier back in 2006 - in fact they even voted for it back then. Kind of hypocritical, wouldn't you say?

For all of you who believe the Iran deal is a good one, I've got a bridge to sell you. Prior notification of nuclear facility inspections? What a joke.
And to the countries that approved the deal with Iran: Are you happy to cooperate with this terrorist nation for a continued supply of oil?

Everybody knows Acosta is nothing but a showboat, yet the press corps defends him.
The media have been caught being untruthful about this president more than once, and no longer have any credibility. The term “fake news” is not false. It is accurate. If the information reported is not the truth, then it is false.
Journalists need to keep their feelings on the Opinion page – not the front page.

It's the Democrats who are holding hostage 2 million illegal immigrants they pretend to champion. President Trump originally offered Democrats a deal that more than doubled the number of people who could take advantage of a pathway to citizenship.
It was a major concession on the part of the President. In exchange for his generosity he’s requesting money to build the wall and an end to chain migration. But it seems that’s not enough for the extremist base of the Democratic Party, because they’d rather keep 2 million people in limbo in order to have the issue to use against Republicans in the 2018 elections. Democrats are losing votes across the country, and they will loose even more if the DACA recipients wise up and see who is really preventing them from becoming U.S. citizens.

Surveillance cameras do serve a purpose in criminal investigations. Many criminals have been identified through the use of these cameras in various countries.

....he (Trump) has already broken several laws.
Can you name a few?
Fact check: Obama broke the law with his DACA program by authorizing amnesty for illegals. Under the Constitution, the president does not have the power to do that. It falls under the purview of Congress.
Personally speaking, I do believe that the "dreamers" should be given a pathway to U.S citizenship, as their residency is no fault of their own. However, the legal ramifications of this issue must be resolved by Congress.

Excellent analysis of North Korea's true intentions. Pyongyang has absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain on the world stage by re-creating this stunt (originally performed in the 2006 winter Olympics in Italy).
When Kim Jong Un first came into power, I was a bit optimistic for change, because this man had spent time living in foreign countries. Unfortunately, that never had any effect on his political decisions.

They expect the Democrats to lay down and play dead while they run over them.
Not so. The president has offered them the continuation of the DACA program in return for border security. Sounds like a fair proposal to me. Truth is, the Democrats do not want Trump to be successful because that would only hurt their chances of regaining the House this coming November.

To marry or to remain single is a personal choice which must be respected.
As for marriage, many counselors have stated that commitment is a key aspect for its success. Some individuals unfortunately are uncomfortable with that.
There also has to be some sacrifice in the mix. If one really loves their partner, this element will be apparent.

What a laugh! Comparing him to Nazis just shows how idiotic some people are. Keep reading your liberal newspapers and focus on CNN, and your mindset will never change.
Granted, he has his flaws (his ego is one of them), but the man is earnestly attempting to bring jobs back to the USA. Just because Wal Mart cuts some employees (not all stores are highly productive, as anyone with the slightest business sense would know), the number of companies that are increasing employment far surpassing the ones that don't.
Time to do a little research into what is really happening behind the scenes.
