    Yes, turn back now, cause we don't want you here. We aren't gonna support you for life. We have our own homeless people, we don't need more.

        When America becomes the shithole that is Mexico and Central America only then will the power tripping leftists be happy. Doesn’t everyone see how Maduro brought happiness to Venezuela?

                  I ‘m tired of the comments saying fight!
                  When our country denies us healthcare and housing for everyone, and we do nothing ! We are afraid of police, military , FBI , and the mob. So stop it!
                  We should all ban together and fight for global justice .

                    New Monroe Doctrine idea: Withdraw US troops from around the world, deploy them in Mexico and central America, shoot all cartel and gang members on sight, use the money we waste trying to help pointless countries like Iraq to rebuild Mexico and central America, only give them full independence when they are actually ready. Prosperous countries = No illegal immigration = No more border wall

                        I used to live in Honduras and I once visited Tegucigalpa, Everything there it's fancy and I never knew there was a side like this. I hope my country gets better but the government is just trash, they steal money and do nothing about the gangs. It hurts me seeing little kids working in the dumps. They don't even know who to brush their teeth, it breaks my heart. May God be with Honduras 🇭🇳💗

                          Im not buying the whole fleeing gangs. At least not in all cases. If they were fleeing violence why not resettle in Mexico or another country.

                              It's unfortunate and sad but these are the people that we're getting in the U.S. Nonproductive, noncontributing, uneducated. How many can we absorb without losing everything ourselves? If the hundreds of thousands trying to come here would put as much energy into taking control of their country they would be a lot better off.
                              Sorry but we don't want you, Stay home, go home. Make change in your own country.

                                They want to work they want to get an education. So I propose we send all the sloths like the women who keep popping out kids living on welfare and not taking care of these kids how about we send those women in exchange for all of these kids that so desperately want to be here to work to learn to have a good life in place of them...!! Sounds good to me🤷🏻‍♀️

                                        i wish they could instead of sending them back to their country which they're fleeing for a reason, they could help them reach their goal of going to the US legally, but sadly i don't think that's possible 😞

                                          Remember for every illegal immigration that is one less job for a legal person. They don't care about the jobs they take from the people who are legal.

                                            They take jobs such as construction, plumbing, truck driving so many more to list. An American did those jobs for years. Now they pay the immigrants cheaper is why. I know what goes on. Don't blame the border jumper at all. It is the government that is to blame.

                                            Rickie-NYC we do the jobs legal citizens won’t do. If an illegal immigrant can take your job that’s not on us. FYI any job that is worthy of a good salary requires a good SSN something illegal immigrants don’t have.

These people need to direct all that energy breaking into the US making their own country a decent place to live. In the long run, that is the only realistic solution; the US cannot take in all of the world's poor.

Violence is their job, their education, their lives....then they bring it here, and destroy more if the world. Just being honest, not politically correct. 90% of Californication is pure evil & they do not care about these POS. They USE them for a vote. Coming to America & not working or speaking English WILL get you killed. Guaranteed.
