    At what point would you be willing to consider the illegal immigration issue a “crisis”...one that would require an “emergency” response?

    In the 80s-early 00’s more than a million tried to cross. Last year it was 400k or so. There is no crisis or even much of a problem

    Haha...those numbers are such bullshit. We had very few beaners from the 80’s-2000 here in South Mexifornia...now English is a second language and you can’t throw a rock in any direction at any time without hitting a wetback in the head. Someone is lying and manipulating the numbers...trust me.
    Further, is 400k a small number of people trying to break in...an acceptable figure all because you think it is fewer than before?
    If 400k were apprehended how many made it to the promise land?

    For years, the Dems called the border situation a crisis.

    It is a huge problem. More and more and coming through illegally.

    We need to build the wall before we do have a major crisis.

    The left refuses to look at the problem. They know it's there.

    They (leftist) want the body count to get more REPS and FED funding per human. Eventually they extend legal voting rights to illegals residing here. Look at SOCAL.
