    In your alternate reality, I'm sure that's all true.

    You know, a lot of you are screaming that there is a flood of immigrants coming over the southern border. Guess you missed the part where illegal immigration is at an all time low, since 2004.

    5 facts about illegal immigration in the U.S.

    The number of unauthorized immigrants living in the United States was lower in 2016 than at any time since 2004. This decline is due mainly to a large drop in the number of new unauthorized immigrants, especially Mexicans, coming into the country. The origin countries of unauthorized immigrants also shifted during that time, with the number from Mexico declining and the number rising from only one other region, Central America, according to the latest Pew Research Center estimates.

    Haha...somebody’s lying huh?
    Does that LefTarded bullshit really seem rational to you?
    We had a President inviting wetbacks here and we had entire cities and states proclaiming sanctuary for them but fewer were coming over...and that makes sense to you?

    You know, I actually bother to read the links that people put in their posts. Your link about the "2.5 Million Join Illegal Population Under Obama" also has this to say.....................

    From your link...........................

    While the level of new illegal immigration is lower than a decade ago, the enormous ongoing scale of illegal immigration is a clear indication that the United States has not come close to controlling it.


    It clearly states that the levels of illegal immigration have been going down for the past decade.

    All countries control their borders and immigration.
    The Statue of Liberty is not an immigration policy.

    Of course it not a policy

    It is a symbol of freedom to the entire world that America accepted at one point in time

    Many European countries accept immigrants as this was how symbolical the statue is

    even US citizens spent there own money to finance the building of the statue

    The US built a immigration station on Ellis island

    12 million immigrants pass through Ellis island including Trumps father

    and now his son became El presidente

    This is a story that could be symbolical and bring a tear to some peoples eye

    yet even ET seems to have ruined that

    So at this point in time there are some who say tear it down and they would probably donate money for that cause

    I would say it is to late

    That ship has long sailed

    We probably need to put ET on that ship before it sails into the sunset.

    Bon Voyage El Presidente

    So should we tear it down? It represents a point of view that Trumpsters detest - I'd think they'd be eager to get rid of it. And for those of us who love liberty, it will just be a painful reminder of what we've lost. If Trump represents the future of the country, the Statue of Liberty has no place here.

    Do not tear it down.
    The Statue of Liberty is the symbol of America's freedoms.
    It's not a symbol for mass illegal immigration or a symbol for people yearning welfare or a symbol for people yearning to mass murder infidels.
