    CNN just can't help it. I went to his Twitter feed, and most of his ire is aimed at Democrats who lean Progressive, and people on his replies are not having it.



    It's so terrible a friend of his had to write an opinion piece to defend him being a shit Journo.

    trump pathetically claims that he never said Mexico will pay for the wall. Now he's saying that he meant the USMCA will pay for the wall. If that's the case, then why is he shutting down the government?

They are, they are paying for it with the incredible deal we made called the United States Mexico and Canada – USMCA – deal."

    Apparently the latest thing from Trump to 'whatabout' is.....wheels. We are truly in the dumbest timeline.

    He said he never said Mexico was going to pay for the wall, then says they ARE in the same bloody sentence! I swear, it's a good thing for him that breathing, heartbeat, and other important functions are autonomous, because if he had to rely on THAT brain to live, he'd have been dead YEARS ago!

    And the USMCA isn't gonna pay for the wall, either.

    There really isn't a lot of evidence on this matter.

    Cato's report that undocumented immigrants commit crimes at a 16 percent lower rate is based on incarceration information from Texas, the only state that keeps data on the number of convictions of illegal immigrants for specific crimes.

    https://www.cato.org/blog/murder-mol...nt-crime-facts

    We don't know if Texas is representative of the entire country. This is also based on incarceration, so that gets a bit murkier especially since this is a community in which victims of crime would be unlikely to go to the authorities.

    We also don't have an exact number of how many undocumented immigrants there are in this country, so incarceration rates are based on a guess (interestingly enough the higher the number of illegal immigrants in the country, the lower their incarceration rate as a percentage of the population.)

    A 2009 report by the Center for Immigration Studies has noted that we lack the data to come to a clear understanding, and the situation hasn't changed in the last decade.

    While at the gym, I watched Senator Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) being interviewed by Wolf Blitzer and she came right out and called Trump for what he is regarding the shutdown that’s furloughed nearly a million federal workers....a HOSTAGE TAKER. Truer words were never spoken the whole damn week.

    Is there evidence that they commit more crime than legal residents?

    No offense mets, but I do have a hard time believing the Cato Institute. You can blame Republicans for their constant war on facts for me being this way.

    Trump's own numbers from INS and ICE refute both his claim and Cato's ... there's tonnes of evidence.

    If I were Trump, I'd stick to the ~6K gang members deported because that data-point is true. But it also means acknowledging that the "bad" ones are coming from our ports (100% of the 5,875 gang members deported came in via our ports).

    No wall needed, just better, modern border security.

    It also means acknowledging that our terrorists are either homegrown, coming in via the ports, and via Canada.

    So again, no wall is needed, just better border security.

    There's a lot of evidence in this matter, though.

    ------
    Nixon thru Obama admins:

    Indicted
    Democrats: 4 Republicans: 120

    Convicted
    Democrats: 2 Republicans: 82

    Imprisoned
    Democrats: 2 Republicans: 34 (so far)

    Based on said evidence, maybe we should build a wall to keep Republicans out of office.

    The "wall" is just a distraction from the criminality of the Republican party, regardless -- if they wanted it they would have passed it when they had control of Congress. Instead, they will attempt to use it to distract from the upcoming investigations of their lies, criminal behavior, and obstruction of justice.
