A “solution” in search of a border control problem

Our Orange Overlord goes critical mass on the protest “caravan” marching in Mexico over immigration reform by screeching that he wants to send troops, at least the National Guard, to monitor our southern borders (never mind that active military has NO jurisdiction within our country’s borders and the National Guard can only be stretched so far, never mind that illegal immigration has actually been decreasing since the middle of the Obama admin).

Yup. More proof Donnie Dollfingers is (a) a soulless fearmonger and (b) a budding Fascist. Scapegoating desperate people for problems they largely did not create; scaring his rabid, ignorant base into a frothing overreaction… This kind of repulsive behavior is bad enough coming from some commentator or Congress member, but when it’s our supposed president* doing this, it’s ominous and troubling.

Immigration reform is direly needed. “Dreamers” deserve justice for being “foreign” kids who yearn to be true U.S. citizens. But illegal immigration has been steadily DECREASING, and undocumented individuals make up a tiny part of the crime and abuse that happens in our country. The real causes of our country’s woes are largely the bulk of the morons who voted for our Mango Mussolini, but a Fascist like him and his ilk lack the testicles to admit this and correct the problem justly. Don’t buy the bullshit, and don’t be surprised when governors in various states (regardless of the political affiliation!) bluntly refuse to let their National Guard troops go play border bad asses (like Oregon’s gov did). The problem is hardly as bad as the Tangerine Toddler Tyrant wants to paint it, and his “solution” just drags us e’er closer to an authoritarian/oligarchical nightmare.
