    We never talk about the EMPLOYERS of illegal immigrants. If we start putting them in jail with the immigrants they hire , this problem would be solved immediately

    You now see the radical Reps on full display. No concern for flesh and blood people but more concerned about things, property, and outdated ideologies.
    These people had two years to do everything they wanted and the second the Dems step up to power, the Reps start the finger pointing, the projection, the deflection, and blaming others for their failure. What did the Reps accomplish last year? The tax cuts were done in 2017. So for 2018,
    (365 days) while the Reps were in control of Congress what did they accomplish? Can you recall anything significant?
    It was let Trump do everything and they did nothing.

    The radical right has long taken over the Republican party. Calling the left "radical" won't get you the wall.

    The goal is to have a handful of Fox news pundits acting as a proxy President. Well done Lindsey, mission accomplished.

    Whenever Graham appears on a news channel he should be asked about his asbestos corruption scandal.

    The "radical left" hasn't been in charge since 2016. Republicans owned all 3 branches for 2 years and at the end of their hegemony; shut the government down because they have failed yet again at governing. Graham needs a scapegoat for the Republican incompetence at all levels of government.

    This whole scenario needs to be handled. How? Cut the salaries of all legislators. You want to see how fast they come to the table. Is it unAmerican to do so? What do you call it when they don't give a damn about the working class. When all civil workers are still doing their job and not getting paid for it. Does Trump believe his wall is more important than those who can't meet their mortgages, car payments, heating in their homes and on and on? If anyone votes for this Clouseau in 2020 there is no stopping his antics to get his way.

    Why not make the crooks who illegally hire undocumented workers pay?
    Why does no one talk about this? You get money for border security AND stop those who caused the problem.
