Good news, I hope wage growth makes up more grounds than it has over the last few years.

Also good to not hear of unarmed black kids being shot by cops too.

It's just a shame we have so many Americans killed by illegal immigrants.

Really Mark? You know, with all the space these migrants take up in your head, it's like they are almost living here rent-free already!

But wait, they die a bunch too:

This kinda makes the places they are "escaping" seem, not so bad I guess then, huh?

On the contrary. Imagine living in a country which is so bad, that you willingly partake in a migration which has killed 10,000+ people over the last 15 years. Imagine how bad it must be that you choose to do such a thing.

And for those who would like to associate illegal immigration with increases in violent crimes, sorry to disappoint but the data just does not support such a claim:

https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00380253.2017.1296339?journalCode=utsq20

Keep grasping at those straws, fellow citizens.

Fundamentally, this still comes down to one major thing. Why are we excusing and/or rationing people breaking the law? What if we apply the same indifference to other crimes? It is really that much to ask that someone follow the law? Especially someone who wants something from us?

Thats the big question, but getting back into partisan crap, I'll also point out that its the same people all butthurt over every major potential Trump discretion that want to completely turn a blind eye to blatant disregard for the law elsewhere. Funny how that works.

I'll just quote Sanjeev's response when you raised the same point from the other thread, because apparently it takes multiple repetitions:

I'm pretty sure everyone, including this liberal commie (I'm a centrist), said that something has to be done about illegal immigration.  We just disagree on Trump's strategy to achieve it.  Kind of like all of the level-headed Trump staff that have quit or resigned as they came to their senses.   What is left...Conway, Donald Jr., Kushner, Stephen Miller, Ivanka and Ben Carson?  Cheers!
