We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Now that up to 40% of the illegals are coming from all over the world via Mexico and the Rio Grande, it might get more interesting.
Got any suggestions?

Where should buses of illegals be sent? Martha's Vinyard, Scranton, Nancy Pelosi's district and any district represented by a Democrat Congress Person native who supports open borders. Maybe PA to help out Joe Manchin too.
Any large blue city will do.
They should be finger printed, mug shot photo and driven to the border. Do not pass goal, do not collect $200.
The prints and photo should be kept on a permanent file and be used to match them to a crime database and to prevent them from ever entering the U.S. again even under a legal situation. Banned forever.
They should be sent to the south side of Minneapolis, where they can bring some diversity to Little Somalia.
The problem is welfare, not immigration. Most of us are 2nd/3rd generation legal immigrants.
When my parents & gransparents came to Canada, there were no government handouts. Just community support to help find jobs.
I tried to emigrate from Canada to the USA a few decades ago. It was a nightmare and I'm sure the situation has not gotten any better. I didn't want any handouts and had marketable skills.
End welfare for all immigrants.
Allow legal immigration without the insane delays and paperwork.
If private citizens, local churches and community organizations want to help, they should be encouraged but not subsidized.
Eisenhower used to put them on unused troop ships and other unused old cargo ships. Sail em down to the left coast of Mexico and hold the ships there until they got permission to land. Sometimes 2 or 3 months on an overcrowded troop ship might make home look pretty good!
Wellll . . .the Catholic church is responsible for the overpopulation of all countries south of the US border. Maybe you should start sending them to Rome.
San Francisco for SURE! Pelosi represents them.
They have a lot of experience with the unhoused.
I'm sure that Zachriel and friends would be delighted to host dozens of illegals. After all, charity begins at home...
been listening to Peter Zeihan lately. He made the point that in the long run we may be glad for the immigrants actually more for their kids in the future but made the point that our population is falling if not for immigration, not like China's but very slowly. Quite the eye opener.
BYW falling pop is much worse that rising, there is no economic model for falling populations.
But yes we need ORDERLY immigration. just boggles me that the left wants to control everything except immigration
Do not pass Go

Do not pass GO, do not collect $200
I've seen reports of studies here in Canada to the effect that privately sponsored refugees do much better than those sponsored by the government. Suspect that's because the private sponsors (churches, etc) don't have endless funds and so work harder to get those they sponsor able to speak English and get jobs.
I have this recurring fantasy where our government rebuilds and reinforces our infrastructure, and the construction of several water desalination plants, and forces the Mexican government to foot the bill. Alas, no.
I assume your comment is meant to imply that the Catholic Church's position on birth control and abortion is the root cause of burgeoning populations in certain countries.
Yet the largest population growth has happened in two non-Christian countries... China which went from 300million people to well over a billion people during the past fifty years, and India which had similar population growth. Either of these countries' population growth overwhelms South America's. In China, blame Mao's exhortations for women to have half-a-dozen children; in India, rising yields of rice due to scientific practices prevented famines and food shortages. Also realize that during the same period, South America had a large influx of immigrants .. perhaps 30 million from the Mid-East; neither India or China had immigration of that size.
I knew that too, embarrassing mistake. That is the problem with writing stream of consciousness and then not checking it over. My most common mistake is misspelling a word but in a way that creates a legitimate word and then the spell checker doesn't highlight it.
Seven of the 10 richest counties in the United States surround Washington DC. Send the immigrants there. Immigration is about profit power and punishment. Massive endless immigration will not end until it becomes a problem for those who benefit from it. The overwhelming majority of the population has wanted less immigration for decade after decade. Supposedly we live in a democracy but somehow we get more immigration every year. Immigration was curtailed in the 1920s because those who profit from it became frightened of the Italian immigrant anarchists who blew up Wall Street. Sending 1 million immigrants to the county surrounding Washington DC is a very good start. I would like to remind people that the conservative pundit George will famously said we could never send back the 11 million illegal immigrants because the number of buses that would take would stretch from the Mexican border to Alaska. George will graduated from Yale yet somehow he assumed all of the buses had to leave on the same day. If we can't send millions of immigrants back across the southern border with buses we can certainly send them to Washington. Also all of the people leaving stupid comments about how we need immigrants because our population is declining are idiots. You don't fix the problem of your people not reproducing by erasing and replacing your people culture history language and birthright.
