    Really? Sure, as usual the only ones with the correct answers are the Republicans.

  2. Why do these Repubs keep saying that it’s the drug/Human Trafficking cartels hopping the fence? Are they that stupid to think that’s how these groups operate? The people hopping the fence are people that are in fear and/or extreme poverty and they’re trying to get out of it. It’s a human rights issue more than an immigration issue.

    • They are being ushered in , and uber’d farther into the country

      What’s moronic is everybody BUT the administration saying it’s a crises , and you’d still rather believe dementia Joe

    • So since your life is all rainbows and butterflies, you wouldn’t understand MS-13 and the destruction they bring.. because people totally don’t sell others into prostitution/slavery anymore 🙄

    • @xDarkxArenx -Do you not read? Biden said it was a crisis during his last debate with the orange creature! He’s been saying the same thing for the past week as more people seek asylum. Who is “ushering” them in? Sounds like Fox/Newsmax propaganda to me.

    • @xDarkxArenx Sarcasm, right?

      I don’t care what they are, I don’t want em here.

  3. These People Are So very Desparate For Help. They So Would Really Want To Say Home In Their Own Homeland. That Is The Land They Love.

    Voting rights must come before immigration!!!!!

      @mpalfadel2008 No, I’m afraid that Jim Jones believed as the Democrats do today.

      @Donna Moore Because he said so — he became a socialist and all socialism is on the LEFT. The Left follows cult leaders by their nature, by their core attributes.
      Likewise, the Right, by their nature and by their core values, follow the Truth.
      So, in other words, by definition, the Left will follow someone who is not true. If someone on the Right did that, they would be acting like the Left.

      @Thɑт Spοk that’s true
      You are ruled by fear and ignorance of the past
      (Your wrong btw, lol)
      Thankfully your just another trumpists, wistfully dreaming that wasps will still rule America in twenty years

    • @Thɑт Spοk Why would anyone want to lose their free speech and voting rights?

    • Thɑт Spοk | March 17, 2021 at 9:16 PM | Reply

      @Donna Moore Ask a democrat, they are fighting for those things and won. So careful what you say because the Democrats will censor you next.

    Right, I always say if nothing changes soon then it will probably never change

    • Change has already started, we got Dump out of office. Now, we need to come together and be one world undivided and help others. Even changing our attitudes is helpful and it a start to a better path to resolve problems.

    The rightful postbox dimensionally launch because comfort coincidingly knot except a panoramic grape. awake, silky passenger

  7. How about direct contact with the Mexican government to the point that they start defending their southern border??I also have to say that what Will Hurd says makes a lot of sense and since the idea is his why not appoint him to the job that he just suggested. I’m being very serious so please do not read any sarcasm into this.

      Hurd is a former Republican representative from that district. He chose not to run again. He was also part of the CIA. So I think he would be a great person to get for this job.

  8. Desperate people don’t care. But I agree with the former Congressman from Texas. I’m a Texan, have a lot of Latinos friend, and believe me he knows what he’s talking.
    Biden has to be humane, but strong.
    Any kind of weakness real or perceived will cause
    In addition, it will not be helpful in securing the latinos’

    Or he could simply PUT UP A WALL! Save money, use Pelosi’s wall.

  10. I like Hurd’s idea of fixing things where people live. It feels like a more fleshed out version of what I’ve heard Biden say he plans to do. It would be great if Hurd could do the job. If he didn’t want to do it, maybe Beto would?

    So where is Mexico in all of this — why aren’t they being pressured to help the situation?

    What is this? Each person that voted could have gotten 1 million dollars and that would be less than 1.9 trillion

    4 year’s of Biden & Harris

    Hurd is 100% correct. The Republicans aren’t interested in solving the immigration problem. They have used immigration as a political weapon for too long to keep themselves in office. Biden needs to invite Hurd to have a conversation on solving the border problem. After spending multi billions to build a wall and billions to maintain it, the problem keeps worsening. Hurd has excellent ideas to fix the problem. Appoint him Czar…

    Dealing with the REASON it’s happening is the only way to STOP it from happening.

    Would the Fence have stopped them?! Exactly why has the problem become worse shouldn’t the other countries be to BLAME?!

    Finish building that WALL problem solved

  18. Put a smart fence. Really. I guess when thousands of unaccompanied kids see a smart fence, they just turn around and go back to mommi. How stupid do these people think we are??

    “A special representative?” By the time he/she could have come up with a single suggestion all of Central and South America could have sneaked across the boarder.
    How about this Mr. Hurd? ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT ARE ALREADY ON THE BOOKS OR ready themselves to hire a special investigator to investigate the special representative!

  20. How about a Marshall plans for American citizens first? America first!
