    Look Carleen, if you are only going to accept stuff from the Trump hating mainstream media then you are going to continue to be grossly ill-informed. Hey...if that's cool with you then it's cool with me.
    Look Mycroft if you are going to accept right wing media then you are going to continue to be grossly ill-formed. You think msm is anti Trump. You have bought in to Trump’s the major press information is false. So if that’s cool with you go for it. Have a nice TGIF.

    Against opposition pushing for open borders, and shutting down the government to keep new construction from being funded, your claim rings a bit hollow.

    Yet he signed a budget with a Republican congress that didn't fund the wall, and shut the government down for a tiny amount of which we have maybe 13 miles of new construction? And now he's calling for the highest numbers of legal immigration ever?

    Trump ad-libs that he wants legal immigrants in 'the largest numbers ever' - POLITICO

    Sorry, Trump has been a big disappointment to us immigration patriots.

    There are those folks too; but often the people coming in from Central America don't have the means to fly in. Painting the wall black just seemed like a pretty daft idea since avoiding that deterrent is pretty simple.

    The budget issue had so much politics in it I think it's misplaced to criticize the President because of border funding. He's directed the DoD to provide funds as a work around to the New Democratic Parties opposition to any restrictions to border invasion.

    But overall, you are entitled to your opinion on the matter.

    I want conservatives to quit the Trump personality cult and get the political ends that they desire. We wanted an end to illegal immigration, legal immigration more tightly controlled (English speakers, no welfare use, etc.), and end to the visa lottery, etc. Why can't we get ANY of these things? Obama gave his constituents DACA (which is clearly unconstitutional and could easily be defeated in the Supreme Court if our Justice Department could do ANYTHING for us). What do we get? Nothing.
