And so you've got to ask yourself this. For two years (2017 and 2018), the GOP had the presidency and both houses of Congress. Why wasn't anything done about this?
Sixty votes probably were needed in the Senate - and it would be hard to get 50 with all the RINOs there.
Sure, just as freedom incentivizes people to leave prison, but that doesnt mean you dont lock the doors.

If you look at the numbers, Illegal crossings (actually apprehensions) were way, way, down in 2017. They didn’t start to approach their record levels until the end of last year, when the caravans started up.

You really don’t have a ready answer here? But as far as Ron Paul is concerned, he’s a worthless gadfly who used his office badly over the years he was a Congressman. And yes, we while we do need to do something about the “inducements” we offer to illegals, nothing is going to be done about them for at least the next 24 months, while we can commence, in earnest, building effective barriers along our southern border.
He has a point. As long as getting across means that illegals can get welfare and be employed, they will figure out ways to get here.
My experience is that the microsecond a politician suggests the USA should maybe consider not fighting wars belonging to a certain country in the middle east, he is designated as a kook.
Why are we being barraged with failed ideas from the Pauls here?
Retire, Mr. Paul. WeThePeople want the wall and have voted into office a President who will do just that. Retire already. Your ideas are old, stale and unacceptable.
Our government is taking our money
And funding our own demise.
How is this at all acceptable?
Thanks and have a nice day.
Yes. Welfare guarantees invasion.
And one cannot claim to be an authentic libertarian while embracing open borders to a welfare state.
