    Trump over the thanksgiving holiday threatened to close the US-Mexico border, and even went as far to say that our troops have been authorized to use deadly force to enforce his policies.

    "He said he has authoried the military to use lethal force is "if they have to."

    What about those commodities made in the US and Mexico? Isn't that going to sting our economy?

    What if our troops open fire and wound or kill migrants? Is that going to be okay with our congress?

    Dock, all of this is an huge Trump created mess, in order to please his uneducated white supremacists supporters. Borders and immigration have always been an issue with this country, so nothing new. However Trump managed to make an huge mess of it ; first by ripping infants from their mothers and escalating the trauma even further. Everything Trump and his cronies touches results into chaos. Only an total change of "power" can may be bring things back to normal.

    They have now shot tear gas at these people; mothers with small children etc. Trump also approved using the troops and allowing them to use their "force" ( read "shoot") if they have too. What about the over a hundred kids who still sit in tents and have lost their parents; dead quiet about that.

    I guess we don't have enough chaos under this total asshole. The Dem's will have their hands full coming January.

    Where is Mueller? Each time we hear "10 day's" ; then nothing happens.

    How is it possible that a country like this keeps such an corrupt filthy "me" "me" guy in place?

    No compassion and no desire to help others. Shame should be upon us. Karma will get you when you least expect it to.

    That's not what is right or humanitarian, I dislike the way people who are trying to come here are being treated. We're not living up to our long reputation of having open, welcoming arms.

    It's sad and I never thought that what's happening now would ever have happened, America should be ashamed of themselves.

    Emma Lazarus: “Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

    My father was an immigrant with out papers who came to this country to flee oppression and war in Europe, after he became a naturalized citizen, he served proudly in the U.S. Army, and is buried in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetary, he might be rolling over in his grave right now.

    I cannot believe that a majority of Americans believe this administration is doing the right thing. We're experiencing moral decay.

    Don Caron has put together some excellent parodies about Trump. He posted the link below just yesterday:

    Lots of creative photography on this one. He even managed to include Ann Coulter saying that Trump is an idiot. Amazingly, the footage covers the entire U.S. Mexico border in roughly 6 minutes.

    Interestingly, the music is from a band called "Foreigner", and the song is titled "Urgent".

    Trump has changed his mind AGAIN, and claims that he will not close the border - for now.

    Trump, talking to reporters as he left the White House, denied that he changed his mind about shutting down the border with Mexico, a threat he backed off on Thursday. Trump said he reversed course because he saw Mexico get tougher in stopping migrants from moving north.

    "I never changed my mind at all," the president claimed, as he pushed Congress act. "I may shut it down at some point.

    I would hope that any company or corporation doing business with Mexico has a plan B in the event trump does close the border. For instance, El Paso allows workers from Mexico into their city to work manufacturing jobs, and Ford, GM, and Chrysler import vehicles from Mexico too, as well as other manufacturers, and if trump closes the border, it'll bring hard economic times to the USA. Maybe that's why he backed off? or maybe it was another touch of his insanity?
