The Federal government should be issuing grants directly to the locality because it’s clear the Texas state government on the whole has no interest in actually solving these problems.

I would argue that Texas wants a wall.

It's not the assylim seekers at the border who are trouble, it's the ones who have been forcibly deported due to criminal records who have no choice but attempt reentry by sneaking across the border.

They cannot obtain and overstay a Visa like most illegal migrants.

Most illegal migrants get in through legal means then just go underground. No one really cares about them, since most stay out of trouble.

It's the ones who serve jail time, and then get deported, who then sneak back across at the border. Those are the ones America is trying to keep out, which is why we need a wall.

If people were educated on this, we'd have bipartisan support for a wall, but politics in America is biased and full of BS on both sides, that no one has any idea what to believe.

Thank you, updated.

Also why am I getting downvoted, it's an entirely sensible argument that a majority of people who overstay visas are people who just want to work, and most Americans have no cause for alarm with them. Where as in contrast those that have been deported via criminal charges can no longer simply overstay a Visa, and will likely attempt a border crossing, or some other exigent means which is why we need a wall.

Nothing I am saying is absurd or insensitive, it's a pretty basic and reasonable argument.

99% of this country can't be that stupid to just think Wall = Orange man.

Orange man = Bad

Therefore Wall = Bad.

What the hell is wrong with people. I knew the 10% extreme on each side is a bunch of crazy morons, but the rest of America should be able to have some critical thinking skills.

Who says they have no choice? Deported illegal immigrants have the choice to stay home and stop trying to enter a country they have no legal right to be in.
