Crumbs. He’s literally bragging about six quarters while giving away the store to the wealthiest & corporations. #GOPTaxScam

I ask "SIX QUARTERS?" Is she serious? I just finished filing my taxes yesterday, and the total increase exceeded THREE DOLLARS for the year. :sohappy

The Left has lost it's mind and the President refuses to act like a dictator and it is ruining their vision of a two class Utopia.

I don't live in the US but we get quite a lot of Trump on our news. From what I can make out he is one brave person and someone who is keeping promises he made before he won the presidency. I wish we had a strong courageous leader. Come to think of it I wish I had his courage myself.

He promised to make Mexico pay for the wall. Why then, is he now trying to use American taxpayer dollars to pay for it?

But setting that aside, you seem to think that keeping promises is a good thing. Well, it is only a good thing if the promises are ethical. And his promise of racist monument along the southern US border is not exactly ethical.

And let's be clear, you (as a non-American) may approve of Mr. Trump but the significant majority of people outside the US do not.

So is the wall oustside the Vatican racist? Was the Great Wall of China racist? Was Hadrian's Wall racist? How about the wall surrounding the Temple in Jerusalem?.....or is it, as all good leftists believe, only racist when Trump does it?....even though only a few election cycles ago Pelosi, Schumer and company were all for the same thing?
My friend, you have a pathetically shallow view of what constitutes 'racism'......but then again so do most leftists.

I'm sorry, I might not fully understand what this article is saying but I just had to say something. Even though it sucks that President Trump is taking the money out of our pay, you have to remember that it's for a very good cause. Like saving our lives. Without the money the wall cannot be built, and if the wall isn't built all of the illegal immigrants will continue coming into our country and taking our jobs as well as our lives. My mom told me that innocent people have been murdered just because they were Christians. Now, even though they all got their rewards in the end I just have to ask you what is worse? Losing our money, or losing our lives?

Where is the actual evidence that illegal immigrants are a murder threat or an economic threat? I will later post the findings of a bipartisan US government body that concluded that illegal immigrants actually improve the American economy.

Like I said, I might not understand too much about politics but I do understand this much. If they are helping the American economy then why in the world are they considered illegal?

Not all walls are racists, but one would have to be living under a rock to not believe Trump's wall is a racist symbol. One need only recall his racist rhetoric about Mexicans.

The crime rate among illegal immigrants in Arizona is twice that of other residents, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Friday, citing a new report based on conviction data.
The report, from the Crime Prevention Research Center, used a previously untapped set of data from Arizona that detailed criminal convictions and found that illegal immigrants between 15 and 35 are less than 3 percent of the state’s population, but nearly 8 percent of its prison population.
And the crimes they were convicted of were, on the whole, more serious, said John R. Lott Jr., the report’s author and president of the research center.

His findings also challenge the general narrative that immigrants commit fewer crimes. Those past studies usually don’t look at legal versus illegal populations, Mr. Lott said.
Mr. Lott said the Arizona data is able to peek behind that curtain, and the differences between the populations were stark.
“There appears to be a huge difference between the two groups,” Mr. Lott said. “The type of person who goes through the process to legally immigrate in the United States appears to be very law-abiding versus even the U.S.-born population. The reverse is true for undocumented immigrants — they are committing crimes, and more serious crimes.”

Among nearly 4,000 first- and second-degree murder convictions, undocumented immigrants accounted for nearly 13 percent — significantly higher than their percentage of the population. Legal immigrants, by contrast, were less than 1 percent of convicts. Native-born made up the rest.
Undocumented immigrants also accounted for five times the rate of convictions for money laundering and kidnapping, and were three times more likely to be convicted of drive-by shootings.
The data covered from 1985 to 2017. For his data purposes, Mr. Lott defined undocumented immigrants as those who weren’t U.S. citizens or green card holders, signaling permanent residency.
He said the crime rates of the undocumented who were ages 18 to 35 was particularly important, given the ongoing debate over legalizing illegal immigrant “Dreamers.” He said the Arizona data showed that population had crime rates 250 percent higher than their share of the population would have predicted.

Let me guess, you're a Mexican right? Is that why you're so offended about this? Trump isn't saying that he hates Mexicans, just the ones that are here illegally.

Ethics?
How ethical is concocting the Steele dossier to influence the 2016 general election?
How ethical is it to tell companies not to cooperate with ICE law enforcement officers?
How ethical is it to allow people to cross national borders illegally?

I seriously doubt Trump meant that Mexico was going to pay for the wall before its even built. So we pay for it now and Mexico pays more in tariffs etc as time goes on. I dont see any problem with that but to think Trump meant Mexico was going to fork out the money for initial construction is simply an execise in misinterpretation solely for the sake of argument.

Your evidence of that?........
It's really a process of elimination. The evidence shows that illegal immigrants from Mexico are a net economic benefit. And while I will have to check, I speculate that illegal immigrants from Mexico are no more likely to commit crime than illegal immigrants from "white" countries. Plus, there is evidence that most illegal drug traffic would not be stopped by a wall. I will get back to you.

So you eliminate things you disagree with until you come to your pre-determined conclusion? The heck with evidence, right?
Agreed and he has yet to answer my questions about what he proposes Trump should do instead, and if the illegals are all innocent and doing good for the American economy then why are they even called illegal and trying to be kept out of our country in the first place?

To get a dl in my state one has to provide a birth certificate, proof of residence. An illegal can't legay get a license in my state.why because he must prove his identity lawfully

This was passed by the dhs under Bush to meet the identy requirements aka the real Identy act.a valid ss is or equivalent is required! Driver without a license ,criminal intent is a crime.the wording of that I must look up. I know one cant use a fake Id on the road .ss are faked and stolen easily .

The act wasn't overturned by the left here.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REAL_ID_Act


That is a very easy thing to go get .i have a cdl class b which requires more then just the basic .a cdl is already a federal regulated license as the standards are set my the federal dot ,all 50 must meet the standards aND that was before that act.if I recall correctly. One can,however, see the problem with that act.
