A really great situation developing at our southern border - thank you open border crowd.

Of course, somehow it will all be Trump's fault.

I wonder if a voter registration committee will be there to welcome them when they cross into USA?

They're too busy trying centuries-old tactics to suppress voters rights:

https://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/a23945645/deb-haaland-north-dakota-supreme-court-decision-voter-suppression/

Voter suppression is as old as America, and the latest move by conservatives aligned with wealthy special interests is to suppress votes with “Voter-ID laws.” The North Dakota law specifically requires IDs to have a street address. Many Indian Reservations do not have street addresses, and under this law, a P.O. box is not considered a valid address.

Yup... Asking people to provide proper identification and proof of address is suppressing voters.... If you're too lazy to come up with two things as simple as this, that you more or less need on a regular basis, and weeks, months, and even years of advanced notice isn't enough time to get them, then you shouldn't be allowed to vote. My guess is people that fall into this category more often than not are liberals?

Sounded to me like they were Native Americans.  I have no idea how the political ideology of Native Americans skews.  I know they don't care for pipelines by and large, which aligns with "liberals."  Homeless people might skew liberal, but a lot of the homeless folks I have met recently are big Trump supporters.  So it could be that homeless people are more likely to vote republican, which seems counter-intuitive.

If it's Democrats or Republicans, I could really care less; if you can't get basic forms of indentification you shouldn't be able to vote. I gander Democrat only because it's typically them who I hear complaining about it.

I'm amazed Greg that the open border advocates are desperate to change the subject, like LC wanting to talk about North Dakota voting regs.  Did you notice that North Dakota is about as far North as you can get in the contiguous US from the southern border?

Native Americans who live on reservations do not have street addresses. Previously they used PO Boxes, but this is now "unacceptable".

You obviously didn't read the article.

Not desperate at all. I've discussed my views on immigration. My opinion is that in the long-term, almost all immigration is a net positive.

I'm not sure what your point is. You posted about the Honduran gov't closing its border with Guatemala. OK? What point are you trying to make? That illegal immigration occurs? That these people are trying to move northwards into the US?


I am just guessing at what point you are trying to deliver because as usual you offer no commentary or analysis with your posts. Your lack of effort consistently astounds me. I'm sure the majority of these migrants work harder than you for far less.  ;D
