    The same day, the journal also published a commentary by four researchers from the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) think-tank.

    The commentary stated the new study was flawed because, among other issues, it improperly used 2005-2010 DHS estimates to count successful border crossers in the 1990s.

    Be very careful relying on a singular study.
    Agreed, but since there are tens of millions of illegals in our country now it is time to call in our chit. Ronald Reagan in 1986 legalized millions of illegals with the promise of border security. The democrats, and some republicans as well, denied the American people of our end of the bargain, namely border security. It is now time to collect on that debt, and Trump is our bill collector.

    But illegal immigration has been declining for decades. Border security has been increasing steadily for decades too.

    Now with ai and drones the possibility for even greater border security grows even more. Why not focus on modern solutions rather than waste money on a wall?

    Thank you for vacating the state.
    Weak sauce. I vacated because I had better opportunities here in L.A. and because it was clear that Texas was no place for a female disabled veteran to grow old gracefully.

    And now, since you've decided to play games like a nine year-old and spew troll bait, we're done here.

    Well if I'm just spewing troll bait write me off. So do you think you would ever change someone's mind through argument if that's what they were truly doing?

    what is the difference between what you are doing and urinating in a hurricane?

    That would be y'all's choice but, there are tons of DVs living around the Austin area.
