    For a long time we have wanted these laws changed and/or repealed in order to get what we want – no invaders on our soil. They disappear and no one knows where. Time to SAVE our Republic and face reality on removal of these laws turning our country into another nothing country with real laws!

    I’ve got some fixes:

    1. Build the wall (Trump working on this)
    2. Enforce federal law – cut funding to sanctuary cities and send executives to jail if they run companies that bypass the law to hire illegals (to me this is the biggest deal, bigger than the wall. Cut their ability to work and they will self deport)
    3. End birthright citizenship (OK, not happening anytime soon, but I can hope).
    4. Longer term, gut the teacher’s unions and take a bite out of public schools. Why is this important, if we have ANY immigrants they need to be assimilated. Our schools are dead set against this

    Tucker Carlson is the only person with a megaphone that I’ve heard address the problem: the birth rate. If Americans don’t start having more babies, we simply cannot sustain our social programs and labor needs. It’s a fact. Social scientists have been giving us that data for a long while, but no politician wants to talk about it.

    The truth is that the white middle class isn’t making babies at even a replacement rate while the underclass is producing more than replacement. KNowing what we know about IQ and how it predicts educational and financial success, we need people with average and above IQs to provide the workers and yes, consumers, of tomorrow.

    Why don’t they? $$$$$$$$$$$$$ Kids are expensive. Neither party talks honestly about the problem: government policies have penalized middle class folks with high taxes while supporting lower income people and adopting policies that actually have fostered a birth explosion among the non-working and the low income.

    We have to address this. I wish POTUS would talk about it.

      I would add that given it looks like the USA will more resemble Mexico/Central America (immigration) or South Africa (reparations) in 25 to 40 years what reasonable sane member lf white working or middle class would want to bring children into THAT. When the future did look bright we did have kids. Now not so much. They are waiting to see what Trump can do. Can he restore USA? Bring back jobs? Give blacks employment opportunities so reparations arent attractive? Build a wall? Deport illegals already here? If so the white working and middle classes will start having kids again.

      • I have 11 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. My two cents here is a misguided feminism movement and birth contol pill of the 60’s helped change the Ozzie and Harriet America slightly. Enough women, (not all) chose pantsuit, briefcase, shiny car, day-care to ‘help’ hubby afford the bigger house, lifestyle and ‘facebook glory’. The pill was part of it, along with ridiculing the traditional family. Not only America. Western Europe was much of this also. Twiggy style on steroids. This has not been that much so in other cultures that out-breed western society. My opinion observing the past 70 years.

      Sorry, but I don’t agree with that view. Take a look around you and see how every U.S. city is now overcrowded with a severe lack of affordable housing. Look at all the gigantic apartment complexes being built with high rent prices. Notice all the homeless living in tents.
      Our roads and highways are more congested than ever, even with skyrocketing fuel prices.
      Speaking from my experience of having grown up in the 50’s and 60’s, the open green spaces I used to enjoy are long gone having been replaced by housing subdivisions and strip malls. Funny that nobody complained about a declining birth rate back then. To the contrary there were predictions about the effects of the post WWII Baby Boomers, a prophecy that has now come true. Most of us grew up to have multiple children and those children now have children of their own.
      Our country and our world are dangerously over populated. I don’t want to overpopulate the U.S. more than what it already is especially with third world unskilled, uneducated huge families.

          Our country is very overcrowded and it’s getting worse every year. Thankfully I’m retired and our home is paid off so we’re set for the rest of our lives. I’m just glad I no longer have to deal with traffic jams and dealing with the public.

          We are becoming horribly overcrowded/overpopulated. Most people do not think the population densities of NY city or Los Angeles provide a great quality-of-life and usually are disgusted by it. Much of the open space, “fly-over country” cannot sustain large populations due to lack of water or it’s needed for growing crops. People are flocking to the desert Southwest, but where it is going to get the water for such rapid growth is a mystery (I know, I live in the fastest growing county in the nation in SW Utah and water is a enormous concern).

          Here’s some NumbersUSA videos on current trends, our rapid immigration-fueled projected growth and how that is going to effect us (already has!!!) regarding environment, quality-of-life, sprawl, agriculture, politics, social programs etc.: https://www.numbersusa.org/#. There are also articles at the Center for Immigration Studies (www.cis.org) which give guidance on how to restructure Social Security and close huge loopholes to help save it for future generations WITHOUT overpopulating ourselves further, especially via mass immigration.

            I consider myself fortunate concerning water supplies. If anything we have too much of it since it rains a lot in western Oregon. But, that keeps things lush and green. We only have to water our lawns a couple of months each year. They stay green year ’round.

              And I live in the exact opposite environment — tons of sand, red (or yellow) sandstone, gray limestone and juniper shrub-trees. It’s still quite beautiful here, plenty of tourists flock to this area. But I laugh at what they call a “river” — something I can usually jump across and, if I miss the bank, I barely get my ankles wet. And a “reservoir” is often a few acres at best.

              At least one advantage of having so little water here is the cartels tend to avoid growing their illegal marijuana groves in the national forests (we do have full-sized trees when you get over 7000 ft elevation). They have to work really, really hard building canals for a pitiful output. Yeah!

Plus cities require a significant infrastructure to sustain them — roads, sanitation systems, electricity, etc. Without a viable industry nearby those systems do not get built.

            The issue is not overpopulation. It never has been. The issue is government policies that deny people the ability to advance.

            This is not a winning argument to support. Not only is it empirically debunked, it makes for the support of horrific genocide to appear humane and I do not mean abortion or as the Democrats now support, infanticide.

            There are jobs and the opportunity to obtain the American dream. You have to want to take it though even if it means moving away from where you were born.

            You do not have to live in West Texas or Timbuktoo to do it. You do have to work, sometimes two or three jobs.

            Sometimes you have to drive an hour each way.

              Apparently you don’t want to learn anything about how mass immigration IS definitely leading us to that very real outcome (as per my NumbersUSA and CIS links).

              Since about 60-70% of our growth is due to mass immigration (almost 100% in CA), I support at least a 10 year moratorium on all legal and illegal immigration with the only exception of one spouse and any minor children. That killing you mention is coming from this mass exodus here.

          However the reason that “so many third world citizens are coming to America” is simply because
          a. the word has gone out that our immigration laws are a COMPLETE JOKE, we are defenseless against illegal alien invasion, and

        Haven’t traveled the world much, Paul? Remember being in Caracas, Venezuela years ago and the tour guide responded to questions about the thousands of cardboard and wood shanty homes up and down the surrounding hills going into town. To our surprise, he said the area had much improved over the past few years. The biggest improvement came from buying televisions as a luxury item after they got electricity. Once that tv trend took hold throughout the community, the birth rate went dramatically down and families could afford to improve their living conditions, including more food, sanitation, etc.

      If I had to guess, I’d say the best way to get the birthrate up is to help the middle class with real jobs. More people working means more people can afford to have kids and the stability of real jobs (like the manufacturing ones Trump is bringing back) allow people the confidence to have kids and to have a mother at home to raise them.

    First off, the arguement isn’t valid or logical.
    TRAFFIC, i.e. cars, pedestrians, bicycles, etc. is VERY complex. And yet we have a whole slew of seperate traffic laws to deal with various situations, and they were NOT passed, all together as one “Comprehensive” package.

    PDJT says “Fine, lets go COMPREHENSIVE! I’M ready, even EAGER to go “Comprehensive”!

    Then, once the Border is secure, we end these stupid policies, I’ll be more than happy to negotiate these other issues.

    Kris Kobach to Trump: You Do Not Need Congress to Immediately Solve Immigration Crisis
    7 Apr 2019

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/07/exclusive-kris-kobach-to-trump-you-do-not-need-congress-to-immediately-solve-immigration-crisis/

    Kobach explained:

    There’s basically three steps. The first one is finalize a regulation that DHS proposed back in September. They could have finalized the regulation, made it go into effect in December, four months ago, but they’ve been dragging their feet … what the regulation would do is basically supersede the Flores Settlement. The Flores Settlement is that 20-year-old settlement that limits the amount of time that a minor can be detained and effectively limits the amount of time that a family can be detained together. Once this regulation is published, we can detain the whole family, keep them together, and that reduces the incentive to bring these minors north and using them as ‘Get out of jail free’ cards.

    The second [step] is because of the lack of traditional detention space, the Border Patrol is saying ‘Well we have to let these people go.’ Now I have some … disagreements with the terms on which they’re letting them go. Let’s back up, we can create detention space. The federal government right now owns thousands, multiple thousands, of trailers and mobile homes that we use for hurricane disasters and they’re selling them at bargain prices right now … we should be using those to create basically processing centers where people … you put a fence around a park or a parking lot, you park a hundred of those trailers there and you can have people have their immigration hearings, have their asylum and credible fear hearing, have everything right there. Deploy dozens of immigration judges down to these centers. Don’t let them go, have a fleet of commercial planes ready to fly them back to their home countries. [further, they should put them in asylum

    The third thing we could do is we absolutely have to put pressure on Mexico. But I don’t think threatening to close the border is necessarily the best way to do it because Mexico knows that hurts us as well. What we should be doing is threatening to pass a Treasury [Department] regulation prohibiting illegal aliens from sending home remittances through Western Union and the like. Then tell Mexico, we’ll finalize that regulation and we’ll cut off $20 billion a year in capital … unless you give us a safe third country agreement like we have with Canada. And what a safe third country agreement is, basically whenever an asylum seeker steps foot in one country or another, he doesn’t have the ability to pass through that country and then claim asylum in the second country. With Mexico and the United States, people coming from Central America would have to claim asylum where they step first, that’s Mexico, and not go all the way through Mexico to claim asylum in the United States. Demand that Mexico sign that agreement, it’s very simple, it’s working great with Canada … and get them to throw in some [border] wall money as well.
