If that's legit, it need to have the date cited and added... then use by Trump as the backdrop to EVERY immigration speech.

“Trump is a bald faced liar”
:iagree:
Sure, but I'm used to seeing the term "barefaced liar" so I looked up bald-faced and it does mean the same:
apparent, bald, barefaced, broad, clear, clear-cut, crystal clear, decided, distinct, evident, lucid, luminous, manifest, nonambiguous, obvious, open-and-shut, palpable, patent, pellucid, perspicuous, plain, straightforward, transparent, unambiguous, unambivalent, unequivocal, unmistakable.

However, we are talking about our president and I think something like "perspicuous" sounds more respectful. Also, whether one agrees or not, a fact is still a fact. :rules:
"Fellowship, Leadership, Scholarship, Service." Anyone?

http://freebeacon.com/politics/jimmy-fa ... ump-tweet/

Jimmy Fallon and President Trump get in a twitter exchange, with Fallon regretting mussing Donald’s hair on his show, making him look human. Donald tweets back “man up”. Then Fallon tweets he is donating a bunch of money to an anti Trump immigrant group. He then forgets to log out as Jimmy Fallon and congratulates himself on what he had just done. Started to add a second congratulation from another fake twitter account, but realizes he is tweeting as Jimmy Fallon by mistake and erases both fake congratulations.

But he got caught.

I have stopped watching late night TV for a long time now. I usually go to sleep to taped Jeopardy. No politics there I can find.

Tariffs serve a useful purpose:

North Korea cancels annual anti US rally for first time in years. No doubt this will be page one on every newspaper today. Time will do a cover.

I actually don't mind skipping due process for criminal trespass of sovereign borders... since they shouldn't have been able to cross in the first place, keeping them here and draining our already overwhelmed and underfunded system, only worsens the problem for both citizens and criminal aliens alike.
Some people, including our president, seem intent on forgetting the parts of the constitution they feel are inconvenient; but,the case of illegal aliens being covered by and protected by the Constitution has been settled law for 130 years and rests on one word: "person." It is the word "person" that connects the dots of "due process" and "equal protection" in the 14th Amendment to the U.S Constitution and it is those five words that make the Constitution of the United States and its 14th amendment one of the most important political documents in our history.

You might want to refresh your education on the law:
Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886), Wong Win v. United States (1896), Almeida-Sanchez v. United States (1973), Plyler v. Doe (1982), Zadvydas v. Davis (2001), and Madison's writings at the time the constitution was drafted.

No thanks :tiphat: I'm not interested in past precedent in this case... My point was simply that if we had the wall and adequate security at the border this would be a non issue and there wouldn't be a multi year backlog in the immigration courts. And when that happens, people looking to immigrate legally will have a much easier time.

That money ends up in all our pockets in one way or the other.
