Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has deported more immigrants this fiscal year than any full fiscal year of Donald Trump's presidency, but it has yet to reach Barack Obama's early deportation levels, according to new internal Department of Homeland Security figures obtained by Axios.

Trump doesn't actually want to deport them. Neither does he want to fight the reasons that cause immigrants to leave their homes and try to come to the US.

If he actually SOLVED the problems, then he couldn't manipulate his ignorant base.

Do you know why immigration has become such a big problem after Republicans get in charge? Because they want to "wag the Nulli" (and all of the other ignorant Republicans out there). And it is WORKING.

I am going with he wants to deport them more than any other candidate.

They left because Obama and Hillary destroyed their countries, this is a known fact h/t Dirk.

Its always been a problem, I have been posting this for years, just now the supposed "elites" like yourself are paying attention because you don't like the President.

Its disgusting we put people into ObamaFamilyCamps, but whats the alternative? Seriously? You don't want to enforce the border, what other alternative is there?

And it took them two years to get here?!? Sometimes, the stupid burns.

"this is a known fact"

You've repeatedly proven you don't know facts from lies.

"ObamaFamilyCamps..."

If you're going back, they certainly predate Obama. But we get it: dishonesty is your calling card.

A number of U.S. officials -- most notably then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- played an important role in preventing Zelaya's return to office and the junta consolidating its power in the face of massive nonviolent protests.

Serve it up... where is HuffPo "wrong" ...

Go on ... prove it too me that Hillary had nothing to do with the spiral into chaos Honduras and affecting the rest of LatinAmerica?

As I have written before, Hillary Clinton has a lot to answer for with regard to her record as Secretary of State under the Obama administration, particularly in Haiti and Honduras, two countries that are still reeling from U.S. intervention into their affairs. At the last Democratic debate, Bernie Sanders brought up the epidemic of violence in Honduras that has forced many unaccompanied minors to flee, but stopped short of bringing up Clinton's role in the 2009 coup in Honduras that removed the democratically elected Manuel Zelaya and helped lead to a new era of repression and lawlessness.

We don't care about the kids, about the immigrants, we just don't want the other side to win.

AHAHAHAHAHAHA...so Liberals don't want America to be the world's police but then they whine like babies when America doesn't act like the world's police.

OF COURSE he isn't matching Obama's numbers and the reason is extremely logical. It's actually so simple that it is a "stupid bar" to measure anyone who thinks this is news at all. When Obama was doing it, both sides wanted it. They knew illegal immigration was a problem and they wanted it to stop. But since a Democrat isn't the POTUS right now, Liberals have completely flip-flopped and say illegal immigrants are now important for America's survival...which sounds funny but there are many top Dems who have been quoted as saying as such. In reality, these numbers should be used as evidence at what this country can accomplish when both sides work together. But for now, this remains probably the #1 hypocritical issues Liberals have taken on. Both sides are major hypocrites and there are many examples of this, but as far as Liberals go this is probably their worst hypocritical stance of them all.

Nor bring in millions for private prisons.

As I said on another thread, tax payers are paying $75 a day for each immigrant child detained in private prison facility. Anything beyond shelter and minimal food cuts into these private companies' profits. Trump sees this. Trump knows this.

All successful Presidential candidates have been vetted by the ruling class prior to getting funded. Trump probably least of all. But we've seen him fall in line with ever more wasteful expenditures on our war machine.

The tragedies that drive immigration have been building for fifty years and cannot be laid at the feet of just one President or Party. Climate change and perpetual war have destroyed tens of millions of innocent people.

Did YOU read the article from Huffington on Honduras before you posted it?

Just asking because if you did then you should find the underlying reasons for it of interest. Clinton's inaction AND actions are disgraceful in this case. Goes toward proving she isn't the radical liberal some on the right make her out to be. Frankly though - where was Obama on this? He was the one to make the calls IMHO.

As for those questioning why so many people are fleeing to the US - it isn't all economics and all you have to do is read that article. Again our tampering in Latin America is the biggest reason for the state of things today.

We should support democracy - whether we like the elected or not - as long as the elections fair and free. Unfortunately BOTH sides have a history of NOT doing that.

Oops! Missed it by that much!

Try again.

Liberals have not changed much on this issue.

They have always said that building medieval walls, closing the southern border to all legal commerce, withdrawing aid from Central American governments, deploying thousands of U.S. troops to southern Texas, and separating migrant children from their parents (and then subjecting them to physically and psychologically torturous conditions, before losing them in foster care) are not wise approaches to policing America's borders.

Do you disagree? Which which part to do you disagree?

Yesterday Andrea was making yet another fallacious claim that illegal immigrants had work visas. I posted the law; it is illegal to give a work permit to an undocumented immigrant or anyone here on a B1 tourist visa, and illegal for anyone to hire them.

Make it easier for Mexicans to work for 6 to 9 months in the US, as long as they go home. It worked well,(Brazos system) till Nixon and others started messing with it. Send those in the US illegally home.

There's a reason repubs dont want to address illegal immigration by going after the source of illegal immigration - people hiring illegal workers - it's because that would require going after rich white people instead of poor brown people.

Repubs strategy is to ignore the source of the problem and prosecute the symptom because they love blaming things on brown people.

We agree for once with much different reasons I'm sure.

Been saying the following for decades now....
Cut off the money flow, then there is no reason for illegals to be here.

Give company's 1 month to get rid of the illegals, starting now!

For every illegal found working for a company, the CEO personally gets fined 1 million dollars, and spends a year in PRISON, not club fed, not a minimum security facility.
No special treatment or protections, no presidential pardons, they will be amongst the general prison population.

All it would take is one or 2 CEO's getting popped, and while not perfect plan, a majority of illegal
Immigration is solved.

Companies hire temp agencies and pay the agencies, its plausible deniability. The agency in turn hires illegal immigrants. Its perfectly legal.

The agency is run by Hispanic citizens.

They dont have to ENFORCE the law. They only have to FOLLOW the law.

But that's too much to ask for white businessmen. If those sweet juicy immigrants are here tempting our white businessmen with their cheap labor, we can't expect white businessmen to do the right thing and follow the law, can we?

Just no money to Trump for deportations. Obama prioritized deportations. Focusing first on people who broke the law.

Trump and Republicans just want to get rid of brown people. They are willing to rip families apart and disrupt the safety of the community (by making illegal immigrants unwilling to report crimes because they are afraid of the police) to do so.

So, no. I don't support deportations under Trump.

When Republicans learn to have some compassion, and maybe learn that people who are NOT white are ALSO human beings, then I might trust them to do the right thing and be willing to provide funds. But for now, we KNOW that they will do the wrong thing, and I will not be complicit in that.
