    Thoughts?
    Is it at an all time low? Or is it being counted and reported different for propaganda purposes? Like when Obama was claiming all time highs in deportations, by counting the catch and releases as deportation.

    Of course they "can be compromised" - we live in the age of power tools. If you have decided that only physical security systems which "can't be compromised" are worthy of taxpayer funding then we should stop putting locks on public school doors, stop fencing playgrounds, schoolyards and swimming pools and save loads of taxpayer money.

    wouldn't Trump be inflating the numbers to make his point then? You know like 4000 terrorists caught at the border....

    Can't believe nobody has mentioned this one yet. I take that back. I can believe it.

    One major reason is that Mexico has clawed back enough of an economy over the years to keep them home. We now have negative unauthorized immigration flow from Mexico, meaning more go back than come in.

    Gee you think there is a message there for the US with virtually its entire ex-border problem originating in three tiny countries in Central America that we have frigged around with and helped screw up for a century? Those folks start their trek from about 1,200 to 1,500 miles away...some of them more! Do you think we might be able to figure out a way to keep them at home too!!!!

    Unfortunately American history of meddling in Latin American countries is as bad if not worse then our history in the ME.

    How many Americans killed by left-handed people is too many in your estimation? We need to do something about left-handed people. Every day we don't do something people are being killed by left-handed people.

    You obviously don't intend on taking the deaths seriously.

    They were once sons, daughters, husbands and wives. Now the only way their loved ones can see them is in pictures. All because some political asswipe refused to enforce the laws of this country.

    Not a single gun has killed any United States citizens. Or, any other person, in the history of firearms.

    No, it would the Swamp corrupting the numbers. With the truth on our side, The President and the rest of us don't have a mindset for this type of propaganda.
