    Four percent of illegals pick crops. Seventy two percent are on welfare.

    Isn't it obvious? The left knows that illegals ultimately get amnesty and can vote. And they vote democratic by a 3-1 margin.

    The left doesn't care about immigrants or the country; they just want the votes.

    Apparently your prospective is completely transactional. Since there isn't a quid pro quo based on compassion you have to find a rationale where there is some form of quid pro quo which as you see it in this case isi mmigrants as potential Democratic voters. One irony is that if it were not for the Republican Party's relatively recent embrace of nativism, immigrants would be natural Republicans rather than Democrats, a factor recognized by former President George W. Bush and his chief political strategist Karl Rove. Although it's been less than 15 years Bush who was as pro-immigrant as today's Democrats. Immigrants are more likely to embrace traditional social/religious values; they're considerably more likely to become entrepreneurs than native-born Americans; and they have fled from or have a well founded fear of left-wing or communist governments (see Vietnamese and Korean immigrants), all characteristics of Republican rather than Democratic voters. The Republican Party has essentially sacrificed its longer-term future for shorter term political gains.

    And therein lies the answer. Instead of the grandiose televised deportations, why not spend that money and effort on making these already "productive" folks living in our society part of this country.

    But we already know the answer and the reason for this spectacle.
    2020 is coming and someone wants to make a grand gesture to gin up his base.

    If Trump went back where he came from it would be under a rock.

    That can’t be the best joke a man of your years and wit is capable of producing.

    Reminds me of a meme my wife shared with me. Went something like:

    Why are so many people traveling so far, to get in to our concentration camps?

    :D

    So seek to change the law, if thats the endgame.

    Cant have 'rule of law' if we selectively enforce our laws.

    So...why dont the dems man the hell up, and seek to change the law?

    Why the need for duplicity, and stealth in terms of what the want, vs how it gets done???

    Let them campaign on it, if they actually seek to change the law.

    Just like Trump did, itchy as it was to do so (albeit in the opposite direction).

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the origin of your avatar? It always appeared to me as Christopher Walken meets "A Clockwork Orange".

    Where did I suggest selective enforcement? My comment was in response to someone who had suggested high IQ entry only because those people are smarter. Which I think would be foolish. Not sure how you interpreted that as me suggesting selective enforcement of laws.
