    A couple of days ago, one of the main US-MX border points of entry was blocked by 1000's of migrants demanding entry into the country, which caused chaos for those who lawfully cross the border on business, for work, or for delivery of goods, both ways.

    Lawful border crossings are getting progressively worse across the border, and drug cartels are finding it easier to move product, as the CBP has to transfer personnel and efforts to the processing of migrants.

    It's not different on MX's South border. Yesterday, ~5000 migrants stormed into Chiapas all the way to the INM building (INM is immigration) running over fences, barricades, and elements of the National Guard. They are now taking over an ecological park in Tapachula, Chiapas, which it's going to be severely affected, as it's been the case with just about everywhere migrants squat.

    Unfortunately, Juan Trump (that's Donald Trump's pet name for the President of México) was bamboozled by his "friend" Donald into making MX a "lobby" for migrants trying to reach the U.S.

    Many people would argue that migrants are "good for the economy", but that is not always the case. Billions of dollars leave the U.S. economy every year, because migrants send money from the U.S. to other countries to support families there. The biggest destinations are India and MX, to the tune of 100 billion dollars in 2023 alone, according to the Bank of México (kind of like the MX version of the Fed). These billions of dollars do not circulate in the U.S. economy.

    Speaking of inflation, the past year, the U.S. dollar has lost ~20% of its value against the MX peso. One of the main reasons for it, is the amount of money being sent to MX from the U.S. And MX is the U.S. 2nd largest trading partner.

    Gregg Abbott is a lot of things, but I don't blame him for his attempts at curbing the hordes of people demanding entry into the U.S., even the busing of migrants to other States, making some put their money where their mouth is, like the Mayor of NYC, who was so welcoming of migrants, until he he got a taste, then went crying to the federal government for more money, while the shelters were at full capacity; shelters which BTW serve the NYC poor as well.

    And please, no one mention a wall. There is a wall. A wall can be climbed; a wall can be dug under.; holes can be punched through walls.
     
    Apparently the border wasn't as much of a problem for republicans as they have let on for the last several years.

    The republicans only care about the border as much as they can use it as a weapon against democrats.

    They have self admitted no accomplishments to run on. They aren't any great wedge issues. You can kinda run on inflation being high. Republicans aren't exactly seen as the party of working poor though. Republicans used to run on social issues, but trans is to fringe.

    The border is really not that strong of a play overall.

    Democrats are smart to simply pass a bill with what Republicans want, and watch them vote against it, ala how Obama did Mitch back in 2012.
     
    No. It would be like reading a book that said a car enthusiast has a V8 and two Fords; and then writing a book report and stating that the book said the they had a V8 and two Fords.

    I’m not discussing the particulars of guns and ammo. I’m simply pointing out that you can’t fault the reporter for not researching. The reporter simply reported on something that is in the criminal complaint. If you want to fault the legal team that wrote the complaint, that’s fine. It’s also possible that the individual did not have a lot of knowledge and referred to the firearm as a Creedemore rifle, so the complaint simply used the terminology that he used to them.

    Eh, fair enough.

    It's just irritating
     
    He needs to name them. Pronto.

    He doesn’t have to - they’re proud of it:

    ……….Curtis Sliwa, the Guardian Angels founder, proclaimed: “In fact, our guys have just taken down one of the migrant guys on the corner of 42nd and 7th where all of this has taken place.” Throwing his hands in the air, he added: “They’ve taken over!”

    The man is not a “migrant” but rather a New Yorker from the Bronx, police said Wednesday afternoon. Though Sliwa claimed the man had been caught shoplifting, police provided no evidence to support the allegation……..

    The incident came after a brawl in Times Square between police and a group of people generated waves of backlash against the city’s asylum seekers. Some advocates for immigrants have blamed local officials and the police department for stoking fears of a “migrant crime wave”, even as the city’s crime rate remains largely unchanged since the arrival of tens of thousands of asylum seekers.

    In an interview with the Associated Press, Sliwa said he had believed the man was a migrant because he had been “speaking Spanish” and because other Guardian Angels had encountered him with other Spanish speakers on previous patrols.

    “He was put down so he wouldn’t hurt himself or anyone else,” said Sliwa, who has admitted in the past that he has fabricated stories of criminal behavior to sensationalize the issue of immigration.

    The Guardian Angels have been a fixture in New York City since 1979 when Sliwa founded them to patrol the streets and subways during the city’s high-crime days. They have drawn criticism, including allegations of targeting people of color.

    City councilmember Erik Bottcher, who represents the area around Times Square, said the group should not be detaining people without legal authority…….

     
    I want to know if Hannity or his team suggested that little assault to get ratings. Peice of work. This is what the MAGA anti-immigration stance is - not white? Speaking Spanish? Just assume you aren’t a citizen and have no rights. Just pure racism at its core.

     
    DEMS: Here's a bill for ABC

    GOP: We won't vote for it!

    DEMS: Why not?

    GOP: Because it doesn't include XYZ

    DEMS: Okay. Here's a new bill for ABC that also does XYZ

    GOP: We won't vote for it!

    DEMS: Why not?

    GOP: Because fork you, that's why!

    and rinse and repeat

    I swear, it truly is Charlie Brown trying to kick the football

     
    Sometimes I think Congress would work better if their votes were kept secret.

    They could do what they think is right, and then lie to their constituents about how they voted.

    Their votes are known and they still lie about how they voted

    They'll vote against a funding bill saying it's the biggest waste of money they'd ever seen

    But when any of that money gets to their district there they are, all smiles and handshakes saying what a great day it is for (TOWN NAME)

    That's true.

    lol I had the same thought the other day. I wonder how many would vote the way they REALLY wanted to vote, if it was all done in secret
