    Thoughts?
    The rhetoric from Trump scares people.

    That could play a part in it as well.
    Me not responding means it's a waste of my time and/or I don't play stupid games. I read it, eye-rolled, and moved on.

    Overstays are known people and the government also knows exactly where they are.

    Those are not the people to be concerned with, but of course you already knew that.

    Some of the caravan members talked about that. They thought if they crossed the border they would be shot.

    I don't think Trump ever said that, but if they think that, that is OK.

    And the right doesn't even vilify those who employ them.

    Much less enforce the laws against these criminals.

    Get back to me when they walk the walk they talk.

    Thoughts?

    How do we know how many illegals made it into the country without being apprehended at the border?

    Yes, all the other things that we've been doing that haven't involved a wall or Donald Trump.

    Because in DHS testing, all of the 8 prototype walls (concrete/steel) were compromised.
