    I guess this is what happens when you lose the evangelical vote.

    Looks like Trump pushed the field to the right.

  3. You know it's weird. Because so many Christian churches are all about open borders and promoting the interracial. And yet for some reason some on the right get a label as racist SD anti-immigration.

    My question is what Christian denomination do the "deport them all, and only white" belonging to? Because the general assumption is these people are Christians.


    And yeah I am of the opinion that Trump will own Cruz.

    i think the problem is that things such as this are typically considered an unrealistic solution to a real problem.

    People with criminal records should have the jackboots busting down their doors. It's disgusting that trying to keep foreign criminals out of our country has somehow become a partisan issue, or worse yet, an issue of "progressive" vs. "racist." We have a shitload of American criminals; we do not need one single Mexican, Guatemalan, Salvadoran, Honduran, or whatever criminal. Not one. Is it realistic to say we can keep some from slipping through the cracks? No. Is it realistic to say we could do something about it? Securing our border for starters, not giving violent pieces of shit sanctuary in our own cities being another, perhaps? I'd say yes, that's realistic.

    I don't support rounding families up and dumping them in Mexico. It's just not right. We have 10 or so million here and it is what it is. I'm more interested in preventing a further 10 million. In order to do that we need to secure our borders, like any sane nation seeks to do, and not incentivize illegal behavior.

    None of what I've proposed is racism, none of it is fascism, or any other baseless hyperbolic accusations the latte-sipping cafe communist Bernie Sanders fans want to say it is. It's common sense--which to Bernie fans is an equally loathsome concept as racism and fascism are, to be fair.

    The problem isn't these poor, uneducated folks coming to our country.

    The problem is the fucking benefits the left feel so inclined to hand out to everyone.

    If they come to this country, that's fine, but we can't provide school/health-care/$15 minimum wage for illegal immigrants.

    Stop giving them free shit, and they will stop coming here illegally.


    And just to pre-empt to typical sick liberals who post here, NO, they are not entitled to go to school with my children. No green-card? Don't go to school. They drag down the education level.

    Sounds about as feasible as Mexico building that wall for us.

    Every illegal immigrant needs to be deported. If they want to come to the issue they should do it legally and pay taxes Like the rest of us.

    If they want to be illegal, and take all the good stuff from the country without following the rules then fuck them.

    Cruz already wasn't a legitimate candidate when he proposed a flat tax. At least he's come out and stated a stance on this now. He's been hinting at this but never saying it.

    Of course they're not going to build it--they're just going to pay for it.

    no one even knows what the real problems are yet, it use to be immigrants came over, worked hard taught their children a trade and passed on their work ethics. now most of the next generation refuses to work with dad, won't learn the family trade, so soon America will be south LA

    For what it's worth, the MQ 1C Grey Eagle and MQ 9 Reaper would be a much more cost effect and efficient tool to protect the border

    How is it that Clinton and Sanders are having the "promises they can't keep" dialogue and not these geniuses? There's a better chance of Sanders passing single-payer, free public college, and deeming the first day of the week Socialism Sunday than 12 million illegal immigrants getting "rounded up" and deported.

    Illegals pay more into the system than they take out. Poor, uneducated Republican voters is the problem.

    Pay more into what system?

    By their vary nature they are not paying taxes. Are you smoking crack, or just binging on Rachel Madcow?

    No, Snowden showed us the government doesn't even care when it doesn't have legal precedent. I would love for this to not be a civil liberties issue. I would love to be rational about this, as Rex Kwan Do wants us to be, assess proportion, and realize that you aren't clearcutting a forest if you chop down just one tree.

    But that's not how our government behaves, especially the past 30 years, and it would abuse any precedent to destroy the rights of private corporations and their right to protect their customers' privacy on a case-by-case basis. Because, simply, it won't be one case. Not if they're given that precedent. They'll just railroad Apple every time after that, and sue them if Apple feels they are over-stepping.

    It's a bit terrifying to think I trust Apple's corporate management more than I trust the US government at this point.

    They actually paid about 10 billion into state income taxes and 12 billion into federal.

    15$ minimum wage and "free" healthcare are relatively new things. Immigration of both the legal and illegal variety has happened long before that. But it does sound cooler the way you put it Mr. Sensationalist.
