Has Trump given into Establishment pressure on the issue of immigration? Tell us your thoughts and vote in our CBC member poll!
Awe, Mr. Charles L., it would seem that my fact-based conservative talking points have gotten under your skin. It would seem to anyone reading this that you are a closet Democrat. You are a disgrace! You are spewing B.S. and you know it. It is a sin to mislead impressionable people. You said that you would not reply to me again and yet you did. I would have thought that I would have rendered you speechless. I really could care less if anyone listens to my truthful, factual-statistically correct discussion. You are obviously a macho jackass. Here’s the thing. I am a self-sufficient, educated woman who knows that Donald Trump is the only hope for America right now. I really don’t give a rat’s rear end what you Never-Trumpers think or say. You all need to get together and start your own party. You can call it the Cruz party. Have Fun! GOD BLESS YOU!!!!

If I were going to respond to Ms Laura even though she hasn’t repented of her BIG LIE on how many crimmigrants are here, I’d tell her SHE needs to prove that ludicrously low eleven million if she’s going to use it. I can’t literally prove there are 80,000,000, but I know one t hing: there are closer to that many (or even more) than to 11,000,000. She’s continually spouting the most devious leftwing talking point ever devised. I advise conservatives to pay no attention to anything else she spews, even though, like all good deceivers, she mixes in a liberal helping of truth. Fool me once, shame on u, twice shame on ME.

Ok you anti trump eggheads listen very closely, Trump is not a Politician he therefore will not say the political correctness that you want, he’s speaking of values, that have been forgotten by this present Aministration and Apparently by half of the US citizens that want to turn this country down but at the same time they have prospered in this country
August 26, 2016,4:35 pm
He’s got to play both sides to get elected just like a real Politician would
August 26, 2016,4:25 pm
Charles L. Oh, and by the way, I am a true American. I am hurt by what I am witnessing happening in the country that I love right now. I don’t want my children living in this type of country. There will never be penance for truth telling and fact-based discussion, sir. In your dreams. You need to learn the commandment, “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” Unless you can prove a stat, don’t use it.

You may just die under a Hillary administration from the crime, poverty, immoral behavior, and socialistic policies. Trump is the only authentic candidate who wants to help America right now. I actually do understand the laws. The fact of the matter is that is would take 3 – 4 years of being embroiled in court battles to deport these people. I don’t want them here anymore than you do. Not to mention, the billions of dollars it would cost on the taxpayer dime. The ACLU will fight for each illegal and probably win with some of the liberal judges. The way to handle them is to never-ever give them citizenship and take away all their freebies. Hopefully, then, they will have to go back on their own. It would be a heck of a lot less expensive if we took this route. You people just think, somehow, that ICE can just pick these people up and send them back. Unless they have a criminal history, this is not the case. You can blame Congress and our stupid Government for this. They give illegals and criminals more rights than the law-abiding citizens. Who knows, this may eventually cause a civil war if enough people get angry. Trump will turn over the table in the temple. Quite a few of the power-hungry hacks will lose their gravy trains. I am sorry that you cannot rationally reason with yourself.

My dear, Laura G:
How we gonna “stop all future traffic” if we rely on the mountains to stop invaders? Have those mountains stopped them so far? Ever hear of mountain CLIMBING?
It’s you, Laura, who don’t know the law. The laws of this nation – and any sovereign nation – say that if you invade you go to prison and then home. It’s the left (in both parties) who don’t enforce the laws. If we did, we’d have no problem with criminaliens, MS13, narcotraficantes, or invading terrorists.
I’d rather die than vote for a diabolical Illary, and I never will. But Trump’s a complete phony – he wants single payer, higher taxes on those already paying the world’s highest, sanctions on Christians who won’t do bugchaser (their term, not mine) “weddings”, and male sexual predators in little girls’ rooms, and he says 3 of the 4 most important functions of the federal government are education, healthcare, and housing – 3 areas they have no biz.
In short, he’s on the same.team as Hellary, and he’s consciously helping her win by chasing away his base, along with everything else he can do to lose. Those that vote for him are the ones wasting their votes
You need to wake up to the fact you’ve been snookered. I’d be pro-Trump if I believed he were serious about many of the true things he’s said. But he’s a proverbial 3(-billion?)-dollar bill.
How I come up with my 80,000,000 estimate:
We knew 20,000,000 was ludicrously low when they tried to ram it down our throats in ’05, and beat their butts on that basis.
So there must have really been, say, 40,000,000.
Since then, under both W and O, the borders have been unprecedented sieves, increasingly porous.
So double that 40 mill: voila.
Until you retract that biggest-lie-ever 11,000,000, I’ll know you’re not on America’s side, and I won’t reply 2u anymore. Repent of that deceit.

He has on the point of sending all illigeal immigrants back . He must not give them the opportunity to ever become citizens and instate a harsh punishment for breaking our laws. He needs to show that there is a severe consequence for what they did . Then the border must be protected so no one can slip through .
August 26, 2016,10:13 am
Charles L Could one of you people actually verify your statistics before you make yourself look like a goon? He wants to secure the borders, which should be priority one. You obviously do not understand the legal red tape to get these people out of here. I want them gone to, but I happen to have an understanding of the laws of this country. We need to STOP all future traffic for sure. Go ahead and elect Hillary because of your inability to reason. Watch how fast your country becomes a cesspool of crime and infested with drugs. There will not be a job left for any American citizen. If I could deport Hillary (a known pathological liar and criminal), I would ship her to the most dangerous country that I could come up with. I would, of course, strip her of her secret service protection and any right to bear arms (a right that she wants to take away from us), so she could actually understand the real plight of the American citizen. I also happen to understand GOD’s word. In the last times, deceit will run rampant on the earth. This may just be a sign of what is to come. Only my father in heaven knows. People had better wise up and get a grip. If you think it bad now, you just wait.

Trump has revealed his RINO self and become an honored member of the “Gang of 9”. No wall (border mountains are “enough”), deport only violent criminals (and we’ll never know they’re violent criminals till they kill somebody, and maybe not even then), and everyone else stays and adds 80,000,000 (not that idiotic 11,000,000 Laura Holmes just regurgitated – the enemy admitted there were12-20,000,000 back in ’05 and we knew THAT was way low) to the leftist electorate. Remember when the US played Mexico in the CONCACAF soccer final? The crimmigrants packed the Rose Bowl, booed our National Anthem, threw urine and vomit on our players, hooted their every move, unsettled them to the point where a 2-0 lead turned into a 4-2 loss, and booed them again when they accepted the 2nd place trophy. This is the kind of America despiser to whom Trump wants to turn over our country. Except he won’t, since he ain’t in it to win it – anymore than were Romney, McCain, and the Repubberstamp Congress that gave Obama all his heart’s desires the last 2 years. To wit: by doing this 180, Trump’s risking 99.99% of his support and reverting to the interference runner for Illary he’s always been.

No! When Donald Trump started this process a little over a year ago, he was not a politician and was not in the loop on the laws regarding immigration. Now that he is a serious candidate for president, he is researching and receiving advice from the proper authorities on the matter. The truth is that to deport 11 million illegal is not a easy thing to accomplish. The laws in this country actually protect the illegal aliens. It would take years of court battles for just one illegal alien to get them out of the country. For some reason, these people have due process. They come here, they break the law, and they receive everything free when the average American citizen is struggling right now. Donald Trump will absolutely build the wall and it is more important now than ever that we secure our borders and keep any future illegal aliens and drugs out of our country. The illegal aliens who are criminals are able to be dealt with immediately and should and will under a Trump administration be deported quickly. Donald Trump has realized that we need to start cleaning up the mess that has been made up to this point. He wants to protect American citizens and American interests first. This is the way that is should have been all along. Susie Ray, there is nothing foolish about me. I actually have the ability to reason through things. You Never Trumpers are going to have to learn the hard way that it is you who are acting like the fools in the equation. It is sad and pathetic how childish you all have behaved.
August 26, 2016,8:44 am
No , Trump isn’t flip flopping, Rome wasn’t build in one day, he brought up the imigration issue in this campaign, its the art of the deal, Trump flip flop, no way, he is not like Bernie Sanders, thats a flip flopper, democrat socialist, just bought a $600,000 summer home , how about some of that income redistribution you talked about Bernie,now thats a flip flop, good nite kids.
August 25, 2016,10:16 pm
Yes he has flipped and I don’t like it. The solution is deportation of all illegals and their children.
August 25, 2016,9:19 pm
Trump will eventually flip flop on all the policies that he ran on and make those who voted for him in the primaries look like fools!
August 25, 2016,8:38 pm
And let me just expand on my previous comment on immigration, the way to problem solving is first we sit down have conversations until we agree we have a problem , we must agree that for a country and its citizens to derive a benefit from imigration , we must have imigration with assimilation, otherwise is chaos, back in 1924 to 1964 or so , there was a moratorium on imigration for that reason, asimilation, if it becomes deficult or impractical to deport 11 milion ilegals then a moratorium could be the solution, but all ilegals with crimibal records must go now and santuary cities must not be allowed and the wall must be build, we just got to come up with the best solution for Americans and America.
August 25, 2016,6:07 pm
He wants to stand by the real true immigration laws.
August 25, 2016,4:40 pm
The immigration issues in the US have been ignored by previus administrations,to the point that is become a huge mess, Trump brought it out in the open in his campaign, I believe he s going to make significant changes, starting with deportation of criminals and gangs and closing santuary cities status and build the wall, he will do a lot more that hasnt been done yet ,thats for sure.
August 25, 2016,4:38 pm
His town hall about immigration and some other issues was great. He hasn’t changed his objectives, just the wording which is how I thought he meant from the get go.
August 25, 2016,4:30 pm
It is great that he spoke to the community leaders to get their opinion how to enforce law on illegal immigrants in a humane way.
Also better if Donald trump gives the message very clearly more and more to African Americans how under Donald trump presidency they will be more benifited with less taxes, more jobs to look for and integrated communities.

Director Martin Scorsese recently told Agence France-Presse that he was “constantly discouraged” from making his newest film, Silence. He added that “three or four great actors” rejected casting offers because they could not “put themselves” in the position of Jesuit missionaries in 17th century Japan. The self-professed “lapsed Catholic” should consider those obstacles a blessing in disguise, given […]
“Private Manning is a traitor and should not have been turned into a martyr. Private Manning’s actions compromised our national security, endangered American personnel downrange by leaking 750,000 documents to WikiLeaks.” — Mike Pence
Pres. Obama has, as part of his final pardons, commuted the sentence of convicted traitor and data-leaker Chelsea Manning from 35 years to 5 more months in prison. Was this mercy a good move, or does it legitimize treason and weaken our national security? Vote now in our CBC reader poll!
“I described Obama as an incredible shrinking man, it’s like watching air come out of a balloon. Between now and Easter, his legacy will shrink until it’s about the size of a golf ball.” — Newt Gingrich
