Is the button a trigger to a land mine? If not, it should be.

Or just provide luxury motor coaches to bring them in and give them their *entitlement* packages (how to get free healthcare, housing and EBT) before they arrive?

Good grief....just when I think it can't get any stranger....

And this is being funded how?

When “Border Patrol” looks more like a chapter of Welcome Wagon, we have a huge disconnect with reality.

To help all illegals into this country illegally, and to insure they have all the amenities to ease their stay.

So the feds put in water stations and other life sustaining equipment for some lawbreakers, while destroying the same equipment when in place for cattle.

Speechless. But not at all surprised. I would not be at all shocked to hear my tax dollars were being used to place stores of food, water and shelter out there for lawbreakers entering our country.

Or even to provide transportation.

Why waste money on beacons/towers?

Just watch for buzzards circling in the sky and you’ll find the illegals.

It’s ridiculous that this regime aids and abets the violation of our border by illegal aliens.
