Vote the deplorable politicians out. The“ preposterous second place president” and complicit Republican party are the problem. DACA shall be designed to help people up. The Democrat Party shall cleanse the body politic, reshape what the conservative/ Liberal balance shall be, and create the landscape to rebuild the damage created by arrogant, vain, vile, and misguided persons who impede the sanctity of humanity. There are Republicans in this nation who are revolted by the hijacked direction their party has been placed. Stay calm, help cleanse the pit, and the revolution of voting out the unfortunate and despicable influence will occur in 2018 & 2020. FDR reshaped the nation after damage the conservatives created in the 1920’s. As sophisticated as the healing was at that time in history, the level of acumen now will surpass all that, and be a new beacon for the future. Republicans of this day and age are, well, gone. And it is their own undoing.

Trump may claim the opposition party is at fault, but most everyone is seeing through this ruse by him to attempt to get his wall which is unpopular with the American public. He could really screw up his party's chances even more at the mid-terms if he continues to push for the wall funding by holding DACA hostage.

Unlike the Republicans, I care about the DACA kids.
Nonetheless, I kind of hope the Democrats invoke that dearly held American phrase: "We don't negotiate with terrorists."
For those too dimwitted to figure it out, hostage taking is terrorism.

RB, why don't you use your vaunted ability to Google, and look at the success of the wall between El Paso and Juarez?
After that wall was finished, El Paso went from one of the most dangerous cities in the US to one of the safest.
Do you have something against less crime, fewer illegals, less human trafficking, and fewer drugs?
WGT, your party is going to have to come up with a coherent platform and coherent candidates before you can vote anybody out. I don't see it happening.

moz, you might Google a little further to find out that border cities in general have less crime. More in-depth reporting from the Texas Tribune notes that "border communities like Laredo, El Paso, Edinburg and Brownsville all saw fewer than 400 crimes for every 100,000 residents." Of those, only El Paso has a wall envisioned by Trump. Why the drop in crime in the border communities, including those that don't have such a wall? They beef up their law enforcement which is what most people prefer.
...
In other words, it's not the wall that causes the drop in crime. It's an increased law enforcement presence. That's what I prefer. I know you can only wrap your head around simple things so it's so easy to say "a wall will fix all problems." The truth is, other parts of the wall are breached all the time. The wall does very little to deter entry.

I agree we don't need a physical wall in many parts of our border. In areas where the terrain won't support a wall, let our Air Force make unscheduled bombing runs along the border dropping napalm. I've seem what a beautiful sight it is as the countryside lights up in fire. The sound of fighter jets can put fear in the those trying to sneak into our country. And we already are financing this approach. Maybe a few will die before they all get the message. But this war on illegal immigration has to end. It's obvious we can't talk our way to a solution when our political parties don't seem to care about the people they represent.

drs, you mean the 30% of the people who support the wall? I think our representatives are actually listening to the majority but you refuse to accept that.

You just can't work with this guy. You can't trust him either. Last week for instance, on Tuesday he told the legislators in the cabinet room, "You bring me a bill, I'll sign whatever you bring me." After learning he had angered the 30 per-centers, on Thursday he was using "s-hole" rhetoric to placate them. Then, he sent his lap dogs, Cotton and Perdue< out to obfuscate the whole issue. Art of the deal my arse.

All the Democrats have done since they lost the election is say no to everything put before them. These career public leaches are poster children for term limits, what arrogance to collect a check funded by the tax payers then refuse to do their job. DACA is at their feet, they are refusing to engage in any dialogue that would extend DACA, they can explain their behavior to the nearly million young immigrants as they are deported.

Democrats are lying pieces of sh*t and shameless to the core. For years they've been dangling the carrot of amnesty in front of illegals and now that they have a deal on the table to make it happen they refuse to act. Democrats are evil. Pure evil.
.
There is nothing unreasonable about building a wall and halting chain migration. Democrats had rather screw DACA individuals than allow Trump to fulfill a campaign promise. Evil. Democrats are evil sh*heads.
.
Anyone want to watch a parade of crickets? Watch the silence to this question: Explain why it's wrong to secure our borders and attempt to attract immigrants that are problem solvers instead of problem makers?
