12+ million illegal immigrants in the US. That's the equivalent of 1,750,000 million illegal immigrants in Canada.

If Americans don't want to do the jobs the illegals do, then that is a problem that can be addressed with wages and working conditions and should be attacked from the left. If you want to tackle the issue from the right and suggest that picking fruit and landscaping jobs should pay slave wages then have at it and take that position.

Wage suppression is also very real and serious issue. Here in Canada unemployment is at a all time low and wages are static and we're bringing in 300k fresh bodies a year instead of raising wages or training up people who live here and can't afford homes. Much more poverty and low wages in the US.

Justifying slave labour in order to be "pro immigrant" is also not for anyone on the left end of the spectrum. Again, if you want to be a business person and say that those jobs shouldn't pay decent wages then take up a chair with people like Milton Friedman and Ronald Reagan.

Remember that immigration over the years has been used primarily to import cheap, exploitative labour or soldiers to be cannon fodder for. It's a abuse committed by the people doing the importing. The fact there are families created and positive stories surrounding immigration (think New York turn of the century and the "romance" of it) is a secondary biproduct of a wrongdoing. We don't have to fight a world war to get people to build houses and have babies either (babyboomers) - there are other ways to solve our problems.

Perhaps, you should send a letter to the buffoon.

President Trump uses undocumented immigrant labor. Is anyone surprised?

Is anyone surprised with this?

Trump’s Hannity interview reveals a president out of touch with reality....He can’t explain what he’s trying to do or why.

Even when faced with some of the most egregious softball questions of all time, Trump is barely coherent — unable to describe in any detail what exactly it is that he wants, unable to cite any specific legal authority for a potential emergency declaration option, and unable to describe what such an operation would actually let him achieve......

The man whose whims plunged the nation into a massive crisis that has air traffic controllers working without pay, FBI agents worried that ongoing investigations will have to be dropped, Joshua Tree National Park irreparably damaged, and food inspections curtailed seems to have no idea why.....

But what is it he wants, exactly? Trump can’t quite say. He seems to acknowledge that he is not going to build the 2,000-mile wall he campaigned on by asserting that if the particular patch of border he is standing in front of was walled, then Border Patrol personnel could redeploy elsewhere. But how much wall are we talking about? And where? And at what cost? Trump doesn’t know......In fact, later in the interview Trump seems to acknowledge that the presence or absence of a physical barrier has very little to do with the main immigration policy argument happening in Washington....

And he’s so unselfconscious that he actually threw himself a pity party in the midst of all the problems he’s causing. There’s no apology here for the inconvenience, followed by an explanation of why he’s doing it. Because he’s not sorry. He wants us to feel sorry for him. And that, in some ways, is the most disturbing thing of all.

Oh...this is what he was twitting about...what a f-----g moron!!

n 2017, more than 15,000 people died of drug overdoses involving heroin in the U.S., according to CDC & Prevention. That works out to about 300/wk. But while 90% of the heroin sold in the U.S. comes from Mexico, virtually all of it comes through LEGAL points of entry.


Reminds me of the 4000 terrorist that was captured on the Southern border fake new he was lying about.....ummm....Donald, that would be 4000 terrorists were apprehended at airports all over the world, you lying imbecile.

Exclusive: Trump team should be allowed to ‘correct’ final Mueller report, says Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani says President Trump's legal team should be allowed to "correct" special counsel Robert Mueller's final report before Congress or the American people get the chance to read it.

http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolit ... &ocid=iehp

Is he serious? Does he really believe the accused should have the right to whitewash the evidence
before it is presented to Congress? I bet his dwindling base thinks so. Good grief, what dupes!

If the title, A US President Turned as an Agent of a Hostile Foreign Country, sound like a novel from the next Ian Fleming novel ready to be made into the next spy movie, your in luck because you won't have to spend money at a theater because it will be free on live TV.

FBI 'opened an investigation into whether Trump was secretly working on behalf of the Russians against American interests in the days after he fired Comey because they were concerned about his behavior'

Trump denies chaotic administration amid shutdown: 'There’s almost nobody in the W.H. but me'

President Donald Trump asserted Saturday that media reports of dysfunction within his administration amid the longest government shutdown in U.S. history were inaccurate because “there’s almost nobody in the W.H. but me.”

http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolit ... &ocid=iehp

:spitcoffee: You just can’t make this stuff up. Who would need to create “fake news” to make Trump look stupid. No one could do a better job of that than himself (no comment on how stupid the remaining apologists are looking right now)

GOP rejected Obama's executive reach, but accepts Trump's

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama stunned Republicans when he bypassed Congress and — relying on what he called his pen and his phone — used executive powers to enact his agenda, including protecting millions of young immigrants from deportation.

Now, with President Donald Trump proposing an even more dramatic end-run around Congress to build his promised border wall with Mexico, many Republicans are uneasily cheering him on.

The potential use of a national emergency declaration by Trump for the border wall shows the extent to which the party is willing to yield on treasured values — in this case, the constitutional separation of powers — to steer clear of confronting the White House and give the president what he wants.

http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/gop ... &ocid=iehp

What a bunch of cowards. The hypocrisy of the GOP knows no bounds.
