Thousands of new ICE agents to be sent to sanctuary cities
Illegal immigration on the decline. More efficient tactics and better enforcement in general.

The challenges of reining in MS-13
In this news clip it is claimed that ONE QUARTER of the population of El Salvador has moved to the USA. Most of that has been in the form of illegal immigration. We really need to get on top of this problem and stop goofing around. A wall might help, but it's going to take more than a wall!

Joe Arpaio reacts to presidential pardon from Trump
Politically correct leftists went after a law and order guy because he followed the law. What is happening in this country? Thank God Trump stepped in and righted this wrong!

Backlash over Trump's pardon of Arpaio as Harvey hit Texas
Arpaio may have been a little bit extreme in some ways, but he didn't deserve to be in prison. Trump did the right thing. Don't listen to the whiners.

The federal government was going to get sued by some states who view the original DACA signed by Mr. Obama as an unconstitutional executive order. That order as indicated by its name DEFFERED ACTION for Childhood Arrivals was a chicken sh*t political move to start with. With Trump not renewing the thing puts the ball into Legislative Branch where in legally belongs. This forces the immigration problem to need to be addressed by elected members in that branch of government. Isn’t that what we need? Why all the bitching and whining? As the law sits those kids are in the US illegally. Many are good people. Some are cancers to society. All have benefited one way or another from the generous US taxpayer. Some DACA eligible participants have earned enough money to pay Federal and State tax. I do not have the facts for this but believe those paying tax is a minority. So, let’s let government do what we pay and elected them to do, come up with a long-waited immigration program. Either that or enforce the laws now on the books. At the end of the current news cycle Mr. Trump did the right thing by not kicking the can down the road again like we have been doing for 40 years.

First of all and most importantly, we have better things to spend money on other than benefits for illegal immigrants. Secondly, we should virgorously enforce all existing laws regarding immigration. I really don't care if families are split apart or any other problem this may cause, the law is the law. We enforce the law for any other category of criminals and anyone in the country illegally is a criminal as far as I'm concerned. If certain aspects of the law need to be altered or reformed, so be it. We have legal mechanisms to change the law through normal legislative processes. I have nothing against anyone, but the law is a joke if it is not properly enforced and that makes our entire country a joke. Some parts of immigration law may need to be changed, but mostly it just needs to be enforced.

I've always wondered if BBQ iguana is actually something people actually eat in Mexico and if it is, then why don't they sell it at Taco Bell? I realize, of course, that Taco Bell is not actually authentic Mexican food, but BBQ iguana sounds like a real treat! LOL

Tribal lands: Most sacred places
Sixty-two miles of border cross through this reservation which includes land in Mexico and the USA. Interesting dilemma. Actually, it's more of a PR problem than a real problem and why the heck are all the people in this video so damn fat?!!
