Build more schools.  That means MORE jobs -- construction workers, teachers, maintenance workers, the opportunities will be endless!

 

And with all the corporations getting tax cuts with the intent that they will stimulate the economy, everyone can and will get paid decent salaries!

 

Is this an example of win-win or making lemonade out of lemons?

 

Spoken tongue-in-cheek, of course, but it all boils down to this whole mess getting exacerbated because Donnie thinks his 'really tremendous' great wall of Trump is the answer.  (Maybe, it it were the 7th century.)


Good deal - and give free food, just imagine all the jobs that would create in the food industry. Then there is clothing and housing. Come to think of it, if the government provided for all our wants and needs, just imagine how the economy would take off.

 

I don't know of any "Donnie" but I do know that physical barriers are effective tools in maintaining the integrity of any physical areas.

That is true but the increase in student populations because of immigrants is immaterial. The point is that Trump should stop being incompetent in his approach to immigrants. 


I would suggest that depends on the school District and the numbers involved. It's not "one size fits all".

The only fair way to do this is to make lil donny's attempt to punish those who dare defy his authority SAVE money for the Government. So every immigrant released into a scancuary city should receive 90% of the cost of holding them in the Republican run for-profit prisons and kid cages, which would be $270 per adult per day and $697.50 per kid per day, or $1,935.00 PER DAY for a family of 4.

 

That is only 90% of what lil donny's policy of "zero tolerance" is costing us RIGHT NOW. Under President Obama, those costs were cut to near zero because the immigrants were given ankle bracelets and a court date which over 96% showed up for and in the meantime they got jobs and supported themselves or were taken in by friends and family. The total nonsense the GOPers spew about these people "costing taxpayers millions" is more GOPerBS. There may be a computed cost per student for our schools, BUT think for just a second: Does the school budget INCREASE when more students show up during the year? NO IT DOES NOT.

 

The "cost per pupil" is calculated after the fact - school SPENT $XXX, had YYY students, so cost per student is $xxx/yyy. If a class of 30 becomes a class of 33, no real increase in the cost, no additional teachers hired, no classrooms built and PERHAPS there's some additional cost for lunches but not sure the immigrant kids qualify and see no evidence the cafeteria added any more offerings.

 

Bottom line is neoRepublicans are spreading their lies about immigrant kids "overwhelming the schools and welfare system" because they hate brown people and poor people and these kids are both.

(---) By the way, where do you get the number is less? It seems the numbers increase every day.

The number of crossings (legal or illegal) are less than 2000.  You can look it up, but here are a couple of links to get you started.

Another “Great Lie” by trump supporters.

The truth is:

Dems are not impeding the wall. Many repubs did not support giving trump more funding. 

And why didn’t repubs support wall funding when they were giving trump whatever he wanted when they controlled both the House and Senate. Looks like repubs were holding up wall funding. And interestingly it wasn’t an issue until trump needed it as an issue for the base. 

Other than trump being a coward and incompetent, he only sows more confusion versus solving the border crisis. That way he keeps it fresh in the minds of his base. That’s despicable to use human beings as his pawns!

In terms of "pissing off" the cities which refuse to enforce federal laws without compensation, why are you so intent on "pissing off" those of us on the border? Trump and his incompetence have dumped 1,600 legal asylum seekers into my small community. Again, without compensation. Those of us in the borderlands are getting tired of cleaning up the Trump messes. @Richva.......................you need to go back and read rker321's post. She seemed to have made it very personal about the pissed off part. Maybe like a personal grudge or something. I was asking her why she would want this just to PO me. I don't think she has told me yet, but I have not read all the posts yet.

You should be first in line to ask for Trump's wall in your area. Make sure it's at least 30 feet high and electrified at the top. Make sure to vote Republican next time!


How high does a wall have to be when the asylum seekers present themselves at the door?  BTW, that was 1,600 asylum seekers Trump released on our streets since APRIL 12.  If you need any help figuring out Trump's appeal to the borderlands, look at how close Beto O'Rourke came to taking Cruz's "safe" Senate seat. Look at the clean sweep of Democrats in New Mexico. Look at the strong Democratic showing in Arizona.........ARIZONA for God's sake. It it wasn't for the chaos Trump is creating, he would be considered a gift to the Democratic Party along the border.
