    Are folks ignoring the word "illegal" when it comes to immigrants?

    It seems people are trying to make Trumps EO about immigrants in general when in fact it is about only those who are illegally in the country.

    Yes, in my opinion that is a big part of the problem. The problem is that they are ignoring that word intentionally. All they have to do is face the fact that there is a difference in legal and illegal.

    Yes.  This kind of nonsense goes on all the time.  I read news articles declaring conservatives are opposed to immigration because they tend to favor securing our borders and deporting "undocumented immigrants".  Just as the media has done with Trump's EO, so it does with conservatives.  And it's deliberate - many who opine on these things (not all I suspect) understand the difference, but because they have an open borders agenda, they strive to present a false picture so they can advance this agenda.  Sick isn't it?

      Ha ha!! Illegal, illegal, illegal.  I used their phrase -  undocumented immigrants, just to demonstrate my point, but of course you knew that - right?

    The liberals don't care about anyone but their party. They use their loyal party voters to get the politicians they want to have in office, and then they look to see what their elite fundraisers want them to do in office.

    The EO was 90 days, they call it a ban. They avoided the security reasons for the 90 days. They focus on those refugees and immigrants that have visas, but they made it sound like all the immigrants and refugees have a right to demand entry into the country, and they don't. But, that is not what the liberals want you to know.

    And PC has turned criminals into de facto citizens, and in California they even give them driver's licenses. On top of free education, free medical, and welfare. They don't want the voting polls to know that illegals are voting so they cry discrimination because having a photo Id is too tough for their voters to get. Yet, anyone on welfare has to have one.

    You know what they call undocumented immigrants in Mexico, Jailbirds.
    There is no reciprocity between the US and Mexico. Yet, illegal aliens can demonstrate against the US in Los Angeles, burn American Flags and Fly the flag of Mexico. All while they are demanding stuff from the US.

    The liberals talk about discrimination with the ME refugees, but everyone of them getting into the country is one less legal immigrant that will be turned away.

    The liberals don't want a border wall, and that wall won't help when liberals want to airlift right into your neighborhood. At the same time, the question how the wall is going to be paid for, that they are spending big bugs on these refugees.

    President Obama said, that diversity is the strength of the US, but he didn't say anything about allegiance being the core ingredient. And ingredient that is not forthcoming from these refugees. They want the US to be their Islam in the West. They have already started that in Europe.

    The liberals also blame Trump for the recent threats on the Jews in the US because he got them mad. Really, what were they before even before 911?

    President Obama went around the world apologizing for the US, President Trump is going to undo that Obamaism.

    We are next.

    Liberalism breeds relativism. Law matters except when it is politically unacceptable. Illegal immigrant success breeds more illegal immigration. Only one party benefits.
    More welfare breeds more bureaucracy. Employment by the government begets more votes for one party.
    Not retaliating for violent protest hurts the country and breeds more violence. More violence is justified by one party.
    We could go on and on, even the dullest should appreciate why we should change laws legally, but not ignore violation of the law. A lot of folks are making a lot of money off this illegal nonsense.

      Quite right John. If nothing else comes of all this I believe light is being shed on the darkness that lurks in DC and in the media. Not that there hasn't been conspiracy theorists however theory is no more.
