  1. Mr. Redneck: Care to offer any idea who Biden’s “Puppet Master” is?

    Mr. Hawkins: Totally agree! Every ILLEGAL, man, woman, LGBTQ, child, handicapped or sick person should be sent back to their country of origin.

    Every person in that classification previously mentioned, who chooses to enter LEGALLY, should be welcomed and helped in any manner we are capable of providing.

    Very simple and easy to understand Immigration Policy.

  2. When it comes to OUR Border, Any Bill that allows a single Person to cross illegally, you need to Vote NO on it. Close the Border as Tight as Possible and only have one or two Ports of Entry, anyone Crossing over any where else, needs to be sent back to their Country.

  3. “Jack Porter signed on to a resolution” that action, IMO, proves she isn’t very knowledgeable of World Affairs.

    “Senate negotiators unveil border security bill” My advice to Rubio and Scott VOTE NO!!!

    Biden (or his puppet master) has purposely flooded our Country with illegal immigrants. The immediate goal: next U.S. Census, some states will gain seats in the U.S. House because Illegal Immigrants and Criminal Prisoners count to state population. And they will likely be Democrat seats and when the illegals and their offspring get to vote, they will vote Democrat. Making U.S. Elections irrelevant is the main goal.
