Biden gets Mexico to pay for the wall

Surely, this makes Biden a superhero to Trump nutters then right?

This is positive step with our neighbor. One might
could argue the stay in Mexico policy helped contribute
to this outcome ?

If I was of a certain political persuasion… It would absolutely be a point of bring up in a debate. Now this is something that you can turn into a nice soundbite, “Biden 's making Mexico pay for immigration” then you turn and make the opponent explain things. Because as always, “if you’re explaining, you’re losing”

Maybe you missed your calling in life as a political
strategist.

The goal of the new projects will be to improve the speed and security of border screening, not necessarily to deter migrants from crossing, the official said.

I’ve volunteered on a couple campaigns throughout the years. I’ll say this since politics involves humans it is both the simplest job and the most complicated job at the same time in the real world. Here is just the simplest job.

I’m also a top notch football coach on the boards too.

Talk about claustrophobic……ugh

I thought he was talking to me. :rofl:

Correct , exactly as it should be as the pics show where the biggest need is.

The US needs to start letting many more people in legally as well. Our quotas are too dang tight.

I agree on many more allowed in legally, but first you
must get a handle on illegal entry. We are not close to that.

There is no desire by either party to get a handle on the border. Republicans use the border and caravans to instill fear, so they can campaign and raise money on the issue.

You can get illegal immigration under control with the verify program that exists. But it would punish employers for hiring illegals, as it should be. However, these companies know who they are hiring and can pay them less for the job.

Sen Scott, the Florida Republican tried pushing legislation to punish employers, and he got his hand slapped for trying.

At the end of the day, Americans can’t have it both ways…you limit and curb illegal immigrants but we would have to pay more for food and services. Illegal labor keeps costs down all along the way.

Why not both? (insert meme here)

Using you’re strategy we’ll never increase legal entry as there is no reasonable way to stop illegal entry, half of which doesn’t even happen on foot South of here.

1 million a year is too many, right

Excellent post, it says it all

No, that’s not even 1% …something like 0.33% is too low. We’ve done more in the past.

That’s because anyone thinking a wall is a cure/answer has a walled in chunk of gray matter.

At least we know repubs don’t hire illegals, except maybe at golf courses.
