If there is no spirit of compromise by either party, they should lose their protected status and people should be encouraged to find better representation.

    As to those currently banging at America's door on the southern border, if a 'National Emergency' can be declared at the discretion of the President, then as a national emergency, aggressive attempts to enter the country can be deemed a military matter and armed forces can be deployed and authorised to capture and remove unlawful entrants with transportation available to send them back to wherever they came from. There should soon be more military personnel available for the task.

    At the same time, legislation regarding those who employ unlawful migrants needs to be created that is necessarily harsh, making the risk of getting caught employing the undocumented (i.e. those who have no permission to work or live in America) not worth the financial reward.

    Indeed, Logical solutions have come for decades and yet none are implemented. But, while those logical solutions have merit...and where they'd require years of legislation and even legal challenges....let's severely reduce the flood of migrants illegally crossing the border FIRST. Because a wall is a logical solution, it does prevent crossings for relatively little money.
    People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally

    There will be no wall on the southern border. There will be a very limited and mostly ineffective amount of new fencing constructed. The border is going to remain porous.


    Republicans from the more liberal coastal states will vote against Trump. Romney represents a fairly conservative state. I don't know what he'll do. I do know that he does want to be reelected.

    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    It does not matter. Boot them.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    No, and neither are you. You always say the Republicans will cave on this or that and they haven't.

    I said that Trump is not likely to declare an emergency on the border. He isn't.

    I said that there will be no wall, only a token amount of steel fence will be constructed. A small enough amount to be considered ineffective.


    Liberal Republicans from the coastal states will not support Trump on his wall project.

    They haven't yet. There's still time. They generally do.

    Trump offered Amnesty for the Dreamers. It was the Democrats, specifically the black caucus that refused. Due to not wanting to get rid of Chain migration and the Diversity visa lottery.


    There are many illegals that are stealing identities of Americans. One of those crimes that the Lame Stream Media limits coverage on. Which says nothing about all those not paying taxes. Not reporting crimes they are witnesses too.


    Declaring martial law for the military doesn't just affect illegals coming in. Moreover at best the Military can detain but it would still fall on the DOJ to take it into court.


    The only transportation the US should be doing is taking all back to the border and dropping them off at the ports of entry and telling them c-ya. Its a long walk back, ask Mexico for assistance.
