I believe the population of Antarctica is overwhelmingly white. You should consider it.

Illegal immigration actually could be stopped overnight though.

Also, you are far worse for this country than asylum seekers or immigrants, legal or otherwise.
I would guess for every one immigrant soliciting jobs in the Home Depot parking lot there are a thousand more working in the industries I have previously named. This is permitted because of economic benefit that this causes for their employer but also for the relatively low prices for those goods in the USA.

Great, glad your working toward this valiant goal. Obviously we have to get the above sorted before we make any changes to illegal immigration enforcement. Otherwise things would really be out of whack. As soon as the republicans have put a generous work visa policy in place for those industries (I'm sure they're right on it) then we can talk about restrictions to illegal immigration. Glad you agree.

I’ve maintained from the start the Democrats can get him to support single payer. All they have to do is send Nancy in to his office opposing it.

Well if you don't have insurance then the whole deductible question becomes moot. Can't argue with that.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Trump is putting out the healthcare ultimatum because the deficit is blowing up and he can cut costs without losing the massive tax break he just gave himself and his rich friends. The con is obvious.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

White House whistleblower says 25 security clearance denials were reversed during Trump administration

Quote:
Newbold also accused Kline of telling her to, in effect, stand down on concerns about another senior White House official, called “Official 2” by the panel. She said one of her colleagues wrote a 14-page summary of why they were planning to deny the application. But when she told Kline of her plan to agree with her colleague on the matter, Kline “instructed Ms. Newbold, ‘do not touch’ the case.”

Kline later approved the security clearance, she said.

Democrats have already identified Kline as one of the people they want to interview. In his letter to the White House, Cummings said the panel’s first subpoena would be to depose Kline, who now works for the Department of Defense.

Not even sure if that’s illegal, tbh. I think the executive branch has wide latitude to give clearances any way they see fit.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

If he wants to take the bullet and claim he made the decisions to issue risky clearances on his own, sure, otherwise you can imagine people higher up may be implicated. However, wegothim.gif is a reference to the sarcastic John Oliver clip which implies that although this would be a big deal if anything mattered, nothing does actually matter, and this will be forgotten about by the party of national security within a week.

The problem is the Republican Party is complicit because he is popular. Itís a conceited effort by a lot of people to protect him because itís politically advantageous.
