Re: Politics

Washington is a machine that'll grind you up, chew you up and spit you out if it doesn't like you. I think it's safe to assume it doesn't like President Knucklehead. :lol: And it's not just because he's an a-hole. It's because he represents a departure from the status quo and that can't be tolerate...

Re: Politics

No, there isn't. You're basically faced with the three imperfect options I mentioned. I don't think Trump has any chance of getting (2) to happen, which his executive order depends upon. And if he eventually resorts to (1) as his predecessor did, I seriously doubt the MSM will spare him their wrath....

Re: Politics

Actually, that's what the last POTUS resorted to when the the federal judge dropped a house on his family detention centers. The number of Central American families entering the country illegally began to surge out of control in 2014. When a federal court ended the Obama administration's use of fami...

Re: Politics

From what I read about the new executive order, it's probably dead in the water. It's going to run into the same problem that the family detention centers of the last administration ran into, You can't (per the Flores Agreement) keep children detained as long as required to process the adults. Thous...

Re: Politics

If you want to end illegal immigration, don't give them a reason to come. That's clearly the way to go. If people who entered illegally had no access to work or government assistance, they would have zero incentive to stay. And it's never going to happen. It's such an obvious solution that it would...

Re: Politics

For the record, I have no interest in "stemming immigration". I'm only interested in stemming illegal immigration. I know the MSM and certain political action groups like to blur the distinction, but they are not the same thing. Someone who breaks into my home is not a "guest". S...

You're upsetting B&W. I'm concerned about his blood pressure.

Re: Politics

Fair point. But the present situation passes muster to that standard? And is a more humane solution? I don't know if the present situation is in violation of the Flores Agreement. I'm not aware of any legal challenge As for a humane solution, I doubt there is any solution, humane or otherwise. The ...

Re: Politics

Is he going with option (3)? That would be my choice. The swimming pool is spectacular.

Re: Politics

The previous POTUS tried (1) and (2). He established family detention centers that kept families together while their cases were processed. But a federal court decided that the family detention centers violated the Flores Agreement that put restrictions on the detention of children.
