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.

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.

Time for you to cue up some hysteria about Schumer, Pelosi, Obama or Clinton as your standard deflection. Or you can issue more racial slurs toward your betters. Anything to distract from the ass whooping you just got.

Arrests of people crossing the border is an indicator of how many people are attempting to cross the border.

Its much lower now than it has been historically. So if the “crisis” is caused by people trying to cross the border…logic would indicate that the conditions do not support the allegation that there is a “crisis”.

No. It is a metric of how many people were caught crossing the border.

Now, where is your statistic that shows for every arrest, X number of people crossing were not caught. That would be the definitive indicator of what kind of crisis we are facing.

The crisis is Trump is in the oval office, and is a Russian asset.

A crisis that needs to be dealt with.

Haha...there’s nearly half a million caught trying to invade our nation each and every year...how many cockroaches aren’t being caught?
What’s your magic number of cockroaches...how many apprehensions of cockroaches would constitute a crisis and how do you arrive at ‘your number’? If you tell us you’ve come up with the number based on historical data I’ll be ready to call you the wetback loving fool you are....GO!
