    Texas Immigrants account for a large percentage of the labor force. This accounts for a nearly 25% of residents working in farming, fishing, construction, and forestry occupations. As employees, business owners, and taxpayers; immigrants help our communities thrive and grow.

    Why dont we just send them back, why are we spending money moving them here there, everywhere but where they illegally came from, and then we are going to shell out even more cash to take care of them while they are in holding? Clothe them, feed them, this is not a solution.

    Florida has been the dumping ground for immigrants for decades there full it’s ruining there senior living and there tourism. Every hotel has turned into a cockroach hotel owned by Immigrants or Saudis etc Not the beautiful Florida it once was. Just wait in five years or less what Trump has created with purposely flooding America with illeagal immigrants all the while saying Dems made me do it for not giving me all the money for my wall It’s going to be just like Florida situation all over America now. Americans will be the foreigners in there own country We should have continued loaning aid money to there countries with provisions that they supplied a living to there people through social programs there countries should collect every single one of these people Only ones allowed should be if a job awaits them period. This isn’t a free buffet red roof inn paid for resort.

      @Broken King - If you mean white people, there are white illegals too who should be deported. But the fact remains that we have a threat at our southern border that needs taken care of, and anyone of any color can cross it illegally. There's nothing wrong with building a wall.

    Trump and Trudeau ended up at the same barber shop. As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken. As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Trump in his chair reached for the aftershave. But Donald was quick to stop him, saying: "No thanks. My wife Melania will smell that and think I've been in a brothel." The second barber turned to Justin and said, "How about you, Mr. Trudeau?" Justin replied, "Go right ahead; my wife Sophie doesn't know what the inside of a brothel smells like."

    Only in America can you be caught at the southern border trying to enter illegally and get a free flight(more than likely many of these peoples first plane ride)to Florida or Northern California....this will not end well when they migrate from there to anywhere else they want after they get lost in the shuffle😠😠 won't this encourage others to get here for free ride?

      @FredrickTesla Maybe your right.just seems like it would be better not to ship them all over the place.the cost will just be passed on to the tax payers for all fuel, food , medical and housing.....nothing new.

    • FredrickTesla

      @One of many You're letting the tail wag the dog on this one. No documentation on a person in most states is the quickest way to get in trouble. Lets say they buy a greyhound ticket to Kansas as soon as they are released in California. Where are they going to live when they get there? Have you seen any kind of housing in Red states that doesn't require a credit check, let alone ID and social security card? Having no records is how they get caught in most states. And in most states, refusal to show proper ID to police is enough for them to arrest you. The deporting part of this is quite simple and easy, it's trying to keep them and carry them economically like California does that is hard.

      @FredrickTesla with the way things have been going enforcing anything would be a start.we don't have a good record of keeping tract of 75% of them at the border .what a mess this will be when they get lost in the paperwork.

      They're illegal immigrants, if they leave the sanctuary cities/states to where the laws are actually enforced, they risk deportation.
