In other news, VP Harris is causing disquiet amongst Democrats by not visiting the US/Mexico border at all even though Biden tasked her with sorting/helping things, This comes when a record 178k tried to cross the border in April alone. If they don't sort this out the Republicans will use this to the full.
Why should she bother sorting it out? It adds a potential 178k a month to the Democrat voting base. It's pretty obvious this would happen were the Democrats to get in. America is getting what it voted for.

They don't get the right to vote straight away, If they come in illegal they end up part of the "Black Economy" for years, No "NI Number" Cash in hand jobs etc, No unemployment benefit, They rely on handouts for food etc and then some go on to commit crimes and then again plays right into the hands of Newsmax, OANN etc

Of course, but put it this way - not many are going to end up Republican voters.

You never know, Some might end up living the "American Dream" 178k in one month is a huge amount, A number some say was "Encouraged" by Biden, Harris and the Democrats, Sticking their heads in the sand won't solve this, Not sure what would but the US is already becoming a tinder box.

It's not more votes for the Democrats that is the pressing problem.
The Democrats have consistently gotten more votes than the Republicans
Biggest share of the popular vote in 7 out of the last 8 elections.

They share a 50/50 senate despite their senators obtaining twice as many votes as the Republicans.

They get far less political power per vote than the Republicans due to the vagaries of the US political system, the electoral college and gerrymandering.

Touring Central Java...
Looks like Friday has been declared Exeweb Reactionary Day..
Some posters presuming to know so much about US immigration and bandying around made - up statistics.
I wish they would have the same expectations from Johnson after 18 months as they do from Biden after 6 months.
Still, they say ignorance is bliss
Biden and Harris know that the source of the immigration problem is the poverty and corruption in Central America, not a border post. That is why Harris made a trip to Central America last week to try to find solutions.
Shocking that after 6 months Biden and Harris haven't been able to solve the world's problems

To be fair Mike, in his first 6 months Trump had managed to cause most of the world's problems!

Still, good to see old Joe looking so chipper and awake this weekend.
Must be that invigorating Westcountry air blowing all the "sleepiness" away.
