The amuedge one says they are counting voluntary departures along with deportations. American Military University, where you can probably major in crayon eating.

Can someone explain this spin to me? How does an increase in the number of enforcement encounters at the border translate into lax border security? Wouldn't actually the opposite be true?

Donald J. Trump was such a strong man that immigrants didn't even try to cross into the US, whereas Brandon is such a pussy that they're crossing over in record numbers to rape and murder Americans.

Ah, the invasion meme. It's all emotion with that crowd, isn't it?

Imagine the breeding rate of Mexicans to follow the formula:

Given the volume of an average Mexican has the approximate density of water we can calculate the pressure on the border to be calculable by the formula:

Thus if you picture the spillway on the dam to be border patrol pass through to be the rate of Mexicans immigrating legally and the strength of the dam to be the number of enforcement encounters you can easily see we are in for a Noah level flood.

This should in my opinion be obvious to anybody who grew up in a literate household and had an all knowing father who, like my own, informed me as a small child that if every alligator egg that got laid were to grow up to to sexual maturity we would have been up to our asses in alligators long ago.

I get it, those brown people are rapists and murders but people who overstay their visas which accounts for the most people here illegally are perfectly fine

Honestly, are you trying to tell us that you hate immigrants? Bigotry aside, rating Presidents by the number of deportations is about as useful as rating them by the amount of legal immigrations in or out the country during their time, or say by the number of minutes they spent on phone calls or writing letters.

I hate flood migration. It changes towns overnight. Some places are just war zones now. They were such nice areas with restaurants, clubs, bars, stores. All gone now. Don't go out at night and lock your doors.
A few migrants from diverse countries are good.....let them melt in slowly.

Do you really believe this? Is this like Portland being burned to the ground?

A lot of people swallow conservative media bullshit whole. I lived in Chicago for a long time and whenever I'd interact with people elsewhere who clearly watch nothing but Fox they basically ask if I'm afraid to live in a lawless hellscape. Just totally divorced from any sort of reality.

This should be easy for you to name specific towns and specifically how immigration is the cause of the problems. Now is your chance to sell on us on these horrible events happening.

Yep. I live in Portland and have dealt with this firsthand. The weirdest thing is when you get asked "OMG are you safe?" by some out-of-town friend or family member and you reassure them that you are and it's all media hype, instead of feeling reassured they will sometimes lash out because you caused them to question the truthfulness of their preferred news source.

A lot of New Yorkers post about this. Their relatives or friends from some shithole red state will be like - how do you even go grocery shopping, it's anarchy there!

Meanwhile they just had brunch with bottomless mimosas and avocado toast with their friends sitting outdoors and taking the subway to get there.

I’m sorry he’s right. I’ll have you know I was raped and murdered three times by immigrants today while going to pickup my daughter from school.

Also. I thought I saw a Torchies Tacos over by the mall. That sounds Mexican. I’m sure it’s all linked. /s

Life size cardboard cutout. MAGAmen’s wet dream.

My next door neighbor who is in his 80s and watches Fox News all day keeps asking me if I’m scared that illegal aliens on the ghost flights will break into my house and murder me. I tell him, no, I’m afraid of the local rednecks doing that. I'm in Florida.

The result of the daily crime dribble put out by Fox.

There's definitely a limit to how many migrants or immigrants in general any country can handle at some point.

At this time though we have way more Republicans that this country can handle by far than any amount of migrants or immigrants we have. We have a long way to go until this country can function with the amount of Republicans we have in it. That's priority number one. The migrant problem is way distant compared to that

That is indeed true, but we are far from there.
The United States population density is only 36/km², while countries like India have population densities around 400/km². We can comfortably absorb somewhere around a billion more people before we need to worry. That would put us at the population density of France.

Eh, population density isn't the metric I'd use as a threshold.

Yea but we need more white couples to have more children, not Latinos coming up to take your white kids jobs and steal their future. We know your kids really want to pick apples in the fall and de-tassle corn every summer, they just don't get the chance.

What would you use then? It would certainly be a problem if they all came at once, but as long as they trickle in a few thousand at a time we can scale up our economy with them.
More mouths = more hands = more work = more prosperity.
That is how an economy should work.

Agree, it has to be some rate over time based on more than a few different statistics.
