Let's face and make the media report it. Trump has made the immigration issue a much bigger problem

than before he took office. Why don't we hear and see this all over cable and all over the radio outlets? Why doesn't Rush and Hannity report that? The big bad Trump has made the borders form porous and more inhumane. If Trump is so big and bad, why didn't his words frighten the caravans? Why are they still coming?

All you'd have to do to dry up illegal immigration is to only allow tax deductions for the wages paid to people who can clear eVerify. Let the business owners pay taxes at THEIR rate on the money they hire undocumented workers with.

I'm a bit surprised that no state has tried this. Years ago, the SCOTUS shot down states making their own immigration laws, saying that was reserved for the federal government, but each state is permitted to make their own tax laws.

by extension, Hannity are racists. This immigration 'crisis' is about getting rid of black and brown people to preserve a white majority and power. They will not report the truth on immigration on FOX. MSNBC has done excellent investigative reporting on the southern border and on the lies this administration has used, including the conflating of illegal drug transport with refugees. The incessant bashing of MSNBC is short sighted and suspect, in my viewpoint.
