    Once I got over my WTF? moment with Doug’s brilliant p-shop, it took me a while to quit laughing.

    By the way, new illegal immigration position for Trump or whomever: “round them all up and ship them to Canada.”

    ^ How about high-speed rail from El Paso to Winnipeg?
    Free passage, no questions asked.

    his asylum claim was rejected. He headed for Canada.
    At that point, why wasn’t he held for deportation?
    This policy/practice of stop, detain and turn loose is absolutely insane.
    Only the latest in years of outrageous neglect.

    It amazes me that some people don’t even recognize the main reasons for doing Customs & Immigration checks at a border:
    • Prevent the importation of contraband
    • Collect duty
    • Check (passport & visa):
    - Valid identity
    - Criminal history, fugitive status
    - Health history (communicable disease)
    - Sponsorship, ability to be self-supporting
    - Threat to security
    - Validity of asylum claim

    Basically, it’s to make it harder for smugglers and undesirables to do us harm.

    Why is border security even called immoral or unAmerican by some?
    What is immoral is illegal migration (i.e. human trafficking), dereliction of duty to provide security, and aiding and abetting smuggling.

    (What? No, I meant valid reasons, not the intent to corrupt the election process, crash the welfare system, or destroy America as an impediment to various and sundry international totalitarian movements.)

    Igottanidee!! Why don’t we use the “self driving cars” in the NEXT article to transport the illegals BACK to where they came from!!
    When it arrives at the desired location in Mex-Central ‘Merca, unlock the doors, and dump the illegals out. Then the car would lock out any who would return to the REAL ‘ ‘Merca to pick up more illegals . . . And so on.

    Just a thought I had while sitting by the pool with a adult beverage . . .

    ^(5) Tha’s right, Fawkes. It isn’t called Winter-peg for nothing.

    Never figured out why a bunch of people raised in a desert at +35C all the time would want to move to a place that hits -35C on a regular basis.

    (Oh, yeah – welfare ….)

    ^ “It got better,” until recently, [Sliwa] said. “That’s why you need to nip it in the bud now.”

    *heh* Nip it in the bud.
