BTW, it's not the freebies. The net inflow of illegals since Obama took over is ZERO (negative actually). The reason is the jobs depression. If they came for freebies, we'd have seen the same net +500,000 per YEAR (not quite +4 million total) that crossed over during the Bush administration.
Trump said they don't send their best. But everyone freaked out and called him a bigot.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
And you're right, if the parents bring kids over, or have them while they're here, f**k the kids. If the kiddies get sick, we really should just let them die, keep the population down, and those kids sure don't need any education. After all, they can steal or sell drugs for a living if they can't work a job when they grow up. Excellent points all around on this subject!
If you want to say that it's a bipartisan thing, fine, but what you can't do is point to any evidence the GOP has any real interest in shutting off the flow of illegals. There just doesn't exist any - at least not at the upper levels. There is some grassroots opposition, but that doesn't translate to actual policy.
I've posted the stats a few dozen times. Since Obama took over the net flow is ZERO. In the eight years prior, about +4,000,000. If you want to say it's the freebies, and the rest, why did it STOP with the recession? Maybe it's that Obama did a better job of controlling the border than Bush? OK, I can go with that if you will.You couldn't be more wrong. The promise of citizenship without all the hassles of actual waiting, the promise of hundreds of state and federal aid programs, housing, food, and an instant uptick in "the poor" without all the suffering as well as continuing the narrative that Conservatives are "racists" if they don't support illegals staying in the country and getting all the freebies.
