A recent letter titled “Here are the Truths About Immigration Situation” was a response to a previous letter written by a legal immigrant who compared the plight of migrants attempting to get citizenship the right way compared to the record numbers of illegals coming here by walking across our open border today.

Her “truth” stated that the “U.S.- Mexican border is not open as he claims.” She went on to say that 1.8 million illegals were apprehended in 2021, like that was a good thing. Not only is that not a good thing, it’s evidence that our border is wide open. They were not returned, they are being shipped all over the country.

If you live in a country where you can be arrested, fined, for hunting and fishing without a license, but not for entering that country illegally... It's safe to say that country is run by idiots. [wink]

“ Sen. Ted Budd introduces bill forcing Biden admin to restart border wall construction, unlock $2.1B in funding. The Build the Wall Now Act is the first measure Budd will introduce in the Senate since taking office in January”

Hey Kent with a little bit of research one will find that the "Wall" doesn't stop anyone who wants to get into the US. They can purchase a Sawzall from a local hardware store and about thirty minutes later they can cut through one of those panels. They can climb over and dig under or cut through. I think those Trump Billions could be used for other necessary investments in our country and not for steel companies with congressional investors.

Sounds like an issue the GOP can resolve shortly. Any suggestions I'm sure are welcomed, since this is a problem here in the states. Trump suggested shooting them in the legs to prevent crossings or was that Stephen Miller?

The border crises appears to have no answers ... now that Kevin McCarthy is House leader, we can all rest assured that legislation is on the way. Or is it since the GOP hasn't done anything yet other than follow Trumps lead. Crickets.

There is but one real fact.....the Dems had no answer the last two years.

Tommy Davis

And what was the answer now and then from Republicans? Crickets!

Wait I thought Mexico was going to pay for it, which a certain individual claimed many times
