    Wait. People are still trying to get IN to this ‘Absolute Chaotic Disaster?! ‘

    • @Unpopular Politics seriously, how many jobs have you lost to an immigrant. You didn’t get that pizza delivery job you were trying to get? Or that job mowing loans in the summer for 10 bucks an hour?…..oh I know you were up for that $95,000 a year position but they gave it Juan Jesus fresh off the back off the truck.

      Rob Foam it’s more about wages, first off. Second, it’s not the straw man you created. It’s civil rights laws and affirmative action laws that immediately put foreigners at the top of the list for companies to hire. Simply unfair.

    • @Unpopular Politics that is such an untrue generalization to argue against immigration.

    • Unpopular Politics | May 12, 2020 at 3:03 PM | Reply

      @Rob Foam No, it’s facts. Immigration drives down the wages of the native worker. Also, I cited laws you can look up for yourself. Maybe familiarize yourself with diversity quotas and how companies have to hire, legally. This is all really quite black and white but you refuse to see. I believe you have good intentions though. You don’ want to be mean to anyone and you want everyone to share. There is nothing wrong with having that instinct.

    • @Unpopular Politics ok I will read your stuff Thanks for providing your sources. 👍

  3. BREAKING NEWS: Apparently Mexican officials have had a change of heart and for some reason has gladly committed to building and paying for the wall! Officials insist that no in person thank you’s from Americans are necessary! 😱

  4. Theres people who are actually trying to get into the US…..?? Wtf have they been drinking? Bleach?

    • sean w you can go to Mexico if you’d like.

    • Give them a copy of the Constitution, the Bill of rights & then sign them up with the NRA. Then have them migrate back home and build their own country like we did. And the best part is the immigrants are already there to help them build their country.

    • @hefe gonzalez i had that same mental disorder when i fled my country 17 years ago. But i was a kid. I thought America will save me but it buried me even deeper.

    • Now that is funny… probably true though.

    • @hefe gonzalez _Socialism is such a cancer they are willing to risk their lives to get out_

      Another wingnut using redscare propaganda including words they don’t understand.

      _liberalism is a mental disorder._

      Nope. Where as Trumpism is a phenomena that’s a political movement catchall for extremely stupid wingnuts that cannot think for themselves.

    Just add this to the heap of other crisis disasters we are dealing with every single day.

  6. So you think letting people in is a good idea? Yet you won’t even let people out of their houses but you want to let people into the country. Wow

      @Kathy Marie boy you don’t get it. My family came many generations ago yes as immigrants but they were not treated well I think you need to read your history book and find out how immigrants were treated back in the 1900s they didn’t have a check coming to them or stimulus payment. get your facts straight yeah immigrants here a long time ago paid the price they served in the war and they were poor very poor and they lived in crowded situations in bad environments. all I had to do was go back to where my great-grandmother story starts and I could see what happened. Some of them died of the great outbreak of influenza. some died in childbirth with no hope of birth control and 11 children. Many of them had to live in the poorhouse or became alcoholics. I am the product of generations of poverty that influence even my parents. it is a sad fact but it is not something you get over in one generation like it’s all magic. If we want our country to survive we have to stop the immigration right now. It’s a health issue as far as that and it’s also an economy problem

    • @WhiteNewDeal yes it is, statist.

    • ANJANYA AYNAJNA and let me tell you I’ve worked everyday since all this started outside with 25 co workers and no ones sick. So your fears don’t dictate others life’s. So hide if you want because you been controlled by the media with fear doesn’t mean everyone else is.

    • @frictionRx9 Go away, troll.

    • @David Hale may you get everything you deserve.*

      *includes a fatal case of covid19

  7. Good.

    Please stop calling it a “wall.” There is no “border wall,” there’s a border fence.

      @v35tan27 let’s get the wall finished! Trump 2020

    • @james Givens Well, I guess you wingnuts can just imagine that it’s been built. Trump says it’s built, so it’s built. Trumps deffo found an easy audience to convince of anything.

    • james Givens | May 12, 2020 at 1:06 PM | Reply

      @v35tan27 let’s finish it.

    • @james Givens yes exactly 2 illegal immigrants cross our borders every minute, 130 an hour, 3100 a day, 1.1 million per year illegal immigrant foreign invaders entering our country being welcomed by the democratic party in exchange for their votes, that’s why the democratic party is the enemy of the people

      @CTM yep your right. The deamoncrats can’t win unless they cheat the system. Same issue with ballot counting. They’re very corrupt.

  9. Probably the worst time to migrate to America as we don’t have any jobs. Plus it’s not fair to the ones who actually waited their turn…

    I have to lockdown, but you want asylum hearings

  11. California! .. Where they export and outsource jobs, companies, entire industries, and lifelong residents,
    and import-insource illegal aliens, the homeless, and tweakers from all the other states to take advantage of our legalization and SUBSIDIZATION of drugs.

    Keep them all out.

    Thank You Mr President for controlling our borders!

  14. String Monkey | May 12, 2020 at 12:16 PM | Reply

    Since they cannot claim asylum here, having crossed more than one country to get here, might I recommend they ask for it in Mexico.

  15. If you remember Trump wanted to close the borders in January but democrats cried keep it open , flights came in carrying the virus .

    Every aspect of this is absolutely insane.

  19. Almost every county in the world is doing the same.. Spend your time on the positive things and stop trying to bait the public on your issues and negative agenda

    Intro: “As Covid-19 looms…” Understand the drama of an intro, but covid-19 is not quite “looming.” Indeed, it is here and will be with us for a while.
