Arrests of illegal aliens along the southwest border ticked up slightly in April from the previous month, marking a sustained rise in illegal immigration that has reversed gains made in the early months of President Donald Trump’s administration.

I've never understood, not for one single day, the idea that immigration is some big problem for the US. We are all doing just fine! Immigration is part of the American way. Always has been, always will be.

People who come here work hard and improve our economy. Overall, immigration HELPS us and the economy.

Not to mention the birth rate.

What is the mindset that is fixated on illegals? I don't get it. I don't relate AT ALL.
