RATHER THAN PRESIDENT TRUMP TALKING ABOUT THE BAD ELEMENTS IN THE CARAVANS, HE SHOULD OFFER:

My Recent Posts

 

We, the citizens of the U.S.A., appreciate that non-citizens want to come here and I believe most want to better their lives and the lives of their families. 

 

That is admirable and consistent with human nature.

 

We embrace those desires, but we will only give permission to enter this nation if a potential immigrant utilizes the proper applications and procedures.

 

There are people from all over the world who are properly applying for the ability to enter.  

 

It is reprehensible, immoral, and unethical if we were to allow anyone to enter the U.S.A. without going through the same procedures as others are undergoing.

 

Please be safe, go home and work to better your nations and if you still want to emigrate to the U.S.A., apply at the consulate in your home nation. 

 

The United States of America wants to be a good neighbor to all nations and as such will assist your nations for the goal of better conditions for their citizens.

 

I, sincerely, thank you for your understanding.

Michael-
Great wish, and I think we all wish the same, but it is not Trump's nature to verbalize anything in a positive, unifying manner.
He feels it's his job to, (and he is expected to by his base) to create fear and friction by demeaning anyone who does not agree with his wishes, or anything that detracts from his ego.
I am no fan of any type of immigration to the US, simply due to population and resource issues. It's pretty obvious about Trump's reasoning for his "selective" methods of stopping immigration.

Europe is also in favor of controlled immigration seen how small we are. But unfortunately we seem to be unable (geographically mostly, that is) to block all the refugees and immigrants which flood us due to wars we didn't even start. Another factor is that active participants of those wars themselves refuse to take the refugees in they caused. Especially wicked Saudi Arabia. We already wait for refugees from Jemen…..

But NOBODY wants to discuss or pursue anything to do with controlling human population, which is the catalyst for virtually every problem humans have.

"go home and work to better your nations"
 
It's kind of hard to pull yourself up by your bootstraps when they guy next to you is shooting you to steal your boots.
 
How about we give back some of the million upon millions of dollars that US government assisted corporations (i.e. United Fruit, et al) stole from those nations by paying slave wages and by murdering anyone who dared tried to make them stop? (and use it to build their infrastructure, not pad the politicians pockets).
 
For example, last year we only gave 3rd world El Salvador, Guatamala and Honduras a combined total of $499 million dollars, while giving 1st world Israel $3 billion (and last I heard we never raped the economy of Israel and they don't have a lot of refugees headed this way).  Seems to me a couple billion of that could be put to a better use in Central America.
 
The wages of our sins are steep, but if we don't want refugees then we should stop making them!

I agree with your sentiments, Michael.  But, the fact remains, ninth-tenths of the effort to become a citizen is getting your foot in the door--literally.  It's extremely difficult for someone with no family or property in China to get a visa to visit the US--and for good reason.  But, if the Chinese person manages to get into the US, they stay, and they collect benefits.  I don't care what anyone says.  It happens.  It is much easier to get your foot in the door if you don't have to cross an ocean.

There is no border between Mexico and the U.S.A. and this is why President Trump has to talk about all the elements in the caravan. He has inherited a war zone and his first priority is to defend the American People.
He cannot stop the caravan with an offer. Not even Pena Nieto could do that in Mexico.
Trump didn't build this disaster but many of his predecessors were just watching how the situation got from bad to worse every single year. Bill Clinton talked about the wall, Hillary talked about the wall, Bush didn't finish the wall and even Obama had plans for a barrier and deportation. So I am tired that the wall is good and bad depending on who mentions it. There are several videos on the internet for you to check out. Not interviews, just their own words! 
The Immigration Law is already there, needs for sure to be revised but most of all implemented.

The military has an "active area denial system" with a range of about 700 yards that will make everyone in it's line of fire feel like they've just opened a hot oven on their whole body.
 
It only penetrates a 64th of an inch into the skin, and does no damage, but it surely makes you want to go somewhere else - and QUICK!
 
i feel like i believe the majority of Americans feel - legal immigrants, too - fill out your paperwork where you're supposed to, at the embassy in your home country, and wait.
 
If you decide to come here illegally and force your way into America?  Too bad, so sad...and if you throw rocks, the president has virtually stated that military will return fire...
 
...though this may be a bluff.  As i'm sure most of you know, Trump tells some stretchers on occasion, to make a point or to mislead his enemies or as a strategy for negotiating better trade deals.  So far, it appears to be working and working well.

When I heard that cock-sucking son-of-a-bitch up the ante on the already fake term, "caravan," well I just about lost my shit.  Terrorvan indeed.  That damnable idiot surely enjoys his word play.  Take a moment to think about all of the irrational fear that the Trump terror machine is ginning up about a group of people from Central American walking across Mexico.  Plenty of Kool-Aid snorters right here on the WB believe every word of it.
 
We need to pray for peace.  One thing that might hearten thinking Americans is that the Minuteman Project across California, Arizona and Texas that caused so much mayhem twenty years ago with illegal gun carry and unwelcome violence on the border very nearly was driven out of existence.  The remaining fragments in California are calling for vigilance but are adamant in insisting that their members observe local gun carry laws and above all remain non-violent.
 
I think the guy in El Paso said it best.  "We hear all of this talk about the caravan, what, four thousand people?  We have five thousand people that try to cross every week in El Paso.  There's you caravan."

Face,
 
You're not kidding?  Trump actually said that?  Fucking demon.  I actually remember hearing about this non-lethal weapon, the pain ray? back in the early 2000s.  It was developed to fight terrorists and other enemies in the Middle East.  What have I been telling all of you RW crazies?  The first thing he tried to imply so coyly was that rock throwers would be shot on sight.  Nice walkback.  I guess what he really meant was that they would be arrested, "For a good, long time!"  Sick fucking president from hell.
 
Relax you dumb Trumpies.  We can process these people without a hiccup.  Imagine if Europe had a crisis of morality and treated the refugees from Syria, Lebanon and Iraq in this inhuman way?
 
Oh, that's right.  You guys side with the right-wing xenophobes that would have left these people stranded to die.
 
Do not bring shame upon our nation.  Come to your senses!

Like it or not Trump was elected in part to secure the borders.  Granted he only sees a portion of the problem, the illegal crossings at the southern borders.  However, like it or not he's carrying out something he promised whether you agree with it or not.

Ah, Sustainpeddle mouths rightist dogma about migrants.  I'm sure he/she/it Sustainpeddle is so sacred of MS13 and needs the US army to defend her.  What would happen to ol Sustainpeddle is attacked by women PUSHING STROLLERS!?  Hey, when those babies in the strollers go off, shit is everywhere.  Worse than the bombing of Dresden, eh?  Geezus.  "No US/Mexican border?"  Only in Sustainpeddle's little mind.  You rightist need stiff electric shocks, then straight jackets.  Hell, I'd settle for weak electric shocks for you freaked out, fearful rightist running dogs.

Susitna,
 
We will always have problems, but a problem cannot be resolved the best (to end or mitigate) unless the problem is understood. What is the PRIMARY cause of "unauthorized visitors" aka "illegal immigrants"?
 
ECONOMICS!!!!!!!
 
Please review the following:
 
PROBLEM: Unauthorized visitors
 
DEFINITION: Unauthorized visitors are those persons who enter a country without legal authorization and those who overstay their authorized period.
 
CAUSES, REASONS, AND PROVENANCE: The main reason for unauthorized visitors is that people want and hope to improve their lives and the lives of their families and will gravitate to those situations where the economics provide the incentives to make the change.
 
DISCUSSION: I think all would stipulate that anyone has the right to attempt to better his or her conditions insofar as those efforts do not infringe upon the rights of others. Each nation has the right and obligation to establish immigration laws for the orderly and rational assimilation of authorized immigrants. Do the following comments provide justification for unauthorized immigration?

Unauthorized immigrants are looking to better their situations.
Unauthorized immigrants provide inexpensive labor and are hard workers.
This Nation was built upon immigrants.
It is virtually impossible to find and deport 12,000,000 unauthorized immigrants.

The answers to the above four should be an unequivocal “NO”. If anyone disagrees with that, I will appreciate his or her reasoning for a “yes” response.
RECOMMENDED “COMPREHENSIVE” SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM:
A foolproof system must be devised, implemented, with substantial penalties for non-compliance that will verify a person’s legal authorization to work in the United States.
 
The concept of “anchor babies” should be eliminated, either by a pragmatic interpretation of the 14th Amendment (displaced the disputed Civil Rights legislation of 1866, which was passed by Congress over Andrew Johnson’s veto, and which was proposed by Congress six months after the 13th Amendment had been ratified), by Congressional legislation in accordance with Section 5 of the 14th Amendment, or by a Constitutional Amendment, that could and should be passed by the House and Senate and ratified by the requisite 38 states within a year.
 
There should be a $4.00 (arbitrary) per gallon increase in the federal excise tax on gasoline and diesel, at the pump. A tax credit would be allowed any U.S. taxpayer (who possesses a valid driver’s license and submits proof of vehicle registration and proof of insurance) in the amount of $2,000.00 per year (10,000 miles @ 20 MPG = 500 gallons, thus, 500 X $4.00 = $2,000.00). Ancillary benefits would include that this federal excise tax would be collected from all visitors, authorized and unauthorized, and this would stimulate purchasers of new vehicles to demand more mileage efficiency, i.e., there would be no need for the government to force manufacturers to increase mileage efficiencies. The marketplace would be effective.
 
Federal legislation should be passed that would eliminate all minimum wage laws. The “minimum wage” concept should be replaced with a massive expansion of the EITC regulations, which would cover all U.S. taxpayers who are older than 25 years of age. Another benefit would be that labor costs would be shifted from "above-the-line" to "below-the-line", making our industries, which compete with other nations, more competitive.
 
CONCLUSION: If the above changes were legislated, a substantial number of unauthorized visitors would conclude that it would be better to end their visits, since the economics of remaining in the United States, without authorization, would be substantially diminished.
 
After a year, the situation should be reviewed and adjustment should be made to further the resolution of this serious matter.
 
It is logical that a newborn should assume the nationality of the mother, regardless of the venue of the birth, therefore, the strategy of a mother, who has no authorization to be in the U.S., giving birth in the United States should be of no consequence.
 
This is a nascent effort at offering a pragmatic and rational solution to this serious matter.
 
NOTES: This will be a process, i.e., not an overnight solution. I will appreciate all comments, critical as well as supportive, with the former being most appreciated if rational reasons are included.
 
At a Townhall Meeting a couple months ago, I gave a copy to my Congressman, Brad Sherman. Before I handed it to him, as I walked up to him, he yelled that I want to change how our government functions and that I have 17 differe
