    Question: Can no show joe secure our borders?
    Yes or No

    QUOTE Rep. Henry Cuellar, a moderate Texas Democrat whose district hugs the border with Mexico, isn’t happy with how President Biden’s team has responded to the surge of migrants trying to enter the United States. “His people need to do a better job of listening to those of us who have done this before,” he said Monday.

    He has work to do but let's not forget what he was handed in this situation was a bag of dog shit on fire. Have to stamp it out and wipe the shit off before any real progress can be made.

          He doesn’t have any. Just regurgitated talking points from FOX, Drudge, OAN, Breitbart, Newsmax, Gateway Pundit, Parler, Joe Rogan, Gab, the Daily Caller and Telegram.

              You are pulling the racist card on border security measures?? I should have expected this type of response.
              The MO is always attack with the Lefties. Why is that?

              Lets consider that thousands of people (including children) from Central America are being turned away and now Mexico has a huge problem on their hands trying to set up camps, provide health care, feed them.....and more are marching north every day. Hows that working out with you?
              FEMA now setting up camps.....FEMA!
              Lets see how Joey and Kammy handle it with democratically controlled house and senate.
              Don't screw it up.

              Lets regurgitate Business Insider and NBC articles. No show is telling them to "Don't come over". That will work.

                Lets regurgitate an NPR interview that Islamic extremists can be expected to waltz into the US across the southern border. So....thats ok with you?

                No con job, just facts and it has been going on long before Trump took office.

                Every security expert told you from DAY 1 that a fence was not going to do anything to stop border crossings. The only reason to build one was for the optics, and the optics are cemented in racism after every comment he made about immigrants coming from Mexico on the campaign trail.

                The border crisis is one of ICE's own making, according to people who used to work in the department
                https://www.independent.co.uk/voices...rce=reddit.com

                But sure, let's list a very limited view of the facts and blame them all on Biden instead of stepping back and looking at the bigger picture of how these people are driven to march thousands of miles from their hometowns for safety.

                As for the bolded, the same experts stated that Islamic Extremists flying into Mexico or Central America in order to sneak across the border was unlikely as they would stick out like a sore thumb and would be reported. It's far more likely they would get travel Visas into Canada and then cross the border that way as the northern border is less patrolled than the southern one(Gee, I wonder why the border with the predominantly white country doesn't have a fence running along it?).

                • Also, I'm far more worried about the actual terrorists we know that are here that are planning to kidnap Governors, mail bombs to political enemies, and storm capitols than a possible terrorist that exists only in talking points these days.

                  • I’m just going to say this, if we ever hope to achieve comprehensive immigration reform and legalize and nationalize the millions already here, we have to secure our border. Of all the things Republicans and Democrats could find middle ground and compromise on, this is it. Should have been done a decade ago

                    Perhaps that is why nothing has happened, securing our border is difficult
                    If no government system will guarantee a utopia, then our best choice is to look for the least exploitive one

                      • Who cares. Same with whether we should call the first lady "Dr." all meaningless fluff.

                        As for immigration, more should be done to address people's anxieties lest we get another stupid idea like the wall out of desperation. A lot of the problem is perception, both here and among these migrants as well, just automatically assuming that now is the better time to go and flood the gates because the openly belligerent guy is gone. Just there's other ways to discourage it and encourage more orderly migration besides caging and separating families and building "walls" that collapse in the rain a few days later and are ecological disasters to boot, lol.

                              So, hows it been going for you so far? You still got almost 4 more years of this.

                                For me? Lets see, back to listening to science, record Covid vaccine rollouts (just announced I can start getting mine in 2 weeks), back to protecting the environment, record high stocks (I'm supposed to care about that, right?), new money in my bank account, and I've just gotten a new higher paying job (with another company actually contacting me recently as well as they are looking to fill in positions). So yeah, personally, things are great, thanks for asking. But by all mean, link opinion pieces on one subject and tell me about how this is the greatest disaster of a presidency ever 2 months in. Yes, this needs fixed. But so did a ton of other things as soon as he stepped in. And I'm not dumb enough to think throwing billions at a wall somehow changes everything. Nor am I heartless enough to think pulling kids from families and horribly traumatizing them is somehow ok because they aren't still fetuses who really need protecting. But I like you walked around me questioning your cries of everyone being so mean on poor Trump, and yet you are burning the torches now. So, if you truly believe everyone just looked for things to complain about with Trump, why have I not seen a single thing from you praising some of the things put in place already by Biden that helps the economy and the common person?
