      Fraud not, just a country trying to look out for its own interests.

      1986 assault weapons was banned!
      Private ownership of machine guns made after 1986 is banned by federal law! All pre-1986 automatic weapons must be registered with the ATF and require extensive background checks!!

      Long gun registry was even eliminated in Canada because not a single instance of tracing the ownership of a gun was an important component of solving a murder caused by a gun.

      The ban on magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition had no measurable effect on crime rates.

      So in short democrats want to disarm WHITEY!!

  2. Donald Trump’s grandfather (grand was added at the behest of the general, because it’s important to know that Trump’s father was a citizen by birth.) was one of those immigrants.

  3. Cut the welfare, bully the immigrants, It is just immigrants. I mean he won’t come after any others when it is all finished. Come on people don’t let him bully other people.

      Translation: I’m a third world piece of shyt who wants free stuff and support free stuff being given out to other third world panhandlers.

    • These changes affect non-U.S. citizens. If you’re not a U.S. citizen, then what right to you have to live off the hard-working U.S. taxpayer? I don’t care what race or nationality you are. I”ll make exceptions for people fleeing persecution. But I don’t want to pay to support a non-amnesty case.

  4. Poverty isn’t a lack of character , it’s a lack of luck in winning the genetic lottery , because we’re not all born with a silver spoon .
    Perhaps the point is …. imagine how much energy and talent we could unleash if we got rid of poverty once and for all .

    • Not even saying I disagree, but poverty is a relative position and has existed in every country/civilization throughout time. As far as history shows, you cannot rid a place of poverty.

    • Um, yeah. We will get rid of poverty. Go find a drug addled, alcoholic, dressed in lice ridden rags laying in a puddle of their own urine and invite them home for a shower and a hot meal Then tuck them into bed. Do it. Then put them to work in the morning. End poverty now. You can do it.

    • @mtb416 Plenty born with a silver spoon in their mouth end up pouring heroin into that spoon and shooting it up, and then they end up in dire poverty and full of disease, but as the guy says, it has nothing to do with character, all about the silver spoon…

    • @mtb416 …. You cannot get to higher needs until you have the basic ones covered , anywhere …. therefore , immigrants will seek countries where this is most likely , especially if they’re from places with brutal regimes and corrupt governments that demand absolute loyalty , obedience and compliance . From my own experience , I’d say most immigrants possess a far greater work ethic than those that are actual born citizens .

    It’s so good not having to see, and especially hear, Sanders anymore.

    I’m so glad she’s gone….

    So people working and paying taxes should be penalized for needing help from the government they contribute to?

    • Alexis Mitchell | August 13, 2019 at 7:39 AM | Reply

      @mizzmolly you think immigrants caused your tax increase? They didn’t; it was the new tax bill. They aren’t coming here to live off of us. That’s the same lie told about black women being so-called “welfare queens”. And, if employers pay a living wage people could afford to buy food. What does it say about America that someone can still be homeless and starving while working 40 hours per week?

    • @Alexis Mitchell – Where are you getting that from? I said absolutely nothing about immigrants or anyone on benefits causing my taxes to go up, and only an uneducated person would think such a thing. That represents a small part of the budget. What I said was that I’m even more passionate about the issue now that my taxes have gone up.
      The “living wage” issue usually involves people who are in minimum-wage jobs such as fast-food workers. Historically those jobs have been filled by high school and college kids, not people trying to support entire families. And those wages are dictated by the market and skill level, not who is in those jobs. But that’s another area where we see a large number of immigrants with families working. If you’re going to come to the U.S., then use it to your benefit and make the most of the opportunities you’re now exposed to. Don’t expect to continue to work and fast food and make more money simply because you need more money.

    • Alexis, they haven’t paid into the system like people who’ve been here and worked for years. Many receive these benefits the minute the come into the country. They haven’t put anything, or have put very little, into the system.
      I read an article about a Sudanese community on the East Coast (I can’t remember the location exactly). The local government says it’s practically wiped out because as more Sudanese move to that town, the more people need housing and food assistance. Local government officials are trying to get new immigrants to move nearby so that benefits can be spread out and the burden not have to be absorbed just by one community.

      @mizzmolly I’m sure you know fast food restaurants aren’t the only establishments not paying enough. Additionally, in general most school kids don’t work full-time jobs. If so, it’s to support themselves. Any person spending a third of their day working should be able to afford food. Period. In actuality, programs like SNAP, Medicaid, and Section 8 are subsidizing companies, because it allows them under pay employees. Legal immigrants must typically work as a condition of their ability to stay here. We all know people can’t stay on these programs indefinitely any way. We can give welfare to multi-billion dollar corporations (that evade taxes) and farmers affected by the trade war but are upset with feeding our fellow human beings?

      Alexis Mitchell this was a Bill Clinton law that was passed in the 90s.

  8. The media can’t tell you the truth so they just lie about Trump 24-7


  10. Why are Republicans always yelling and acting like their poop dosn’t stink? Perhaps they are all constipated , so the stuff backs up into the brain and makes them mad dogs. Ulg I haven’t seen one yet that resembles a moral man.

    • At least we have common sense. Democrats just make emotional decisions based of what they think gives them moral superiority. Simple example. Democrats want to stop climate change. They increase regulations and taxes on companies, until the companies move to over seas where they cause even more pollution. That and they wanted to keep the paris agreement which basically does nothing but sounds nice. At the same time is the equivalent to every tax paying american borrowing 20k.

    What are Trump and Miller doing about the invasion by the Russians???

  12. Media won’t mention the beating given to protesters across Europe. Bcuz its anti globalist.

  13. Big Blue Wave coming just like 2018

    • @Salterino Kripperino Hmm… Biggest win in history you mean.
      What kind of American are you?

    • @Tessmage Tessera ✔️

      @kare more He’s not an American, obviously. Only posts during the hours when most Americans are asleep (but most Russians are wide awake)…. his channel has no content and was probably created very recently… etc. He’s just another failing foreign troll.

    Sounds good to me. Come here to work, not for handouts.

    So it isn’t just _illegal_ immigrants anymore… now Trump wants to jack it up to including “all Hispanic people.” Just as we on the left expected him to. *BLUE WAVE 2020*

  16. I do not understand. New immigrants are still getting benefits but short period of time. New rule giving them up to a year.

  17. 1863 Ambraham Lincoln ordered the freedom of all slaves. 2019 Donald Trump reintroduced slavery

    • Democrats were and still are the party of slavery! The new slavery is playing the race card and constantly telling blacks they are victims, and keeping them on welfare – the ‘government plantation!’

    If you come to this country just to gain benefits, and need those to survive here…
    We Don’t Need You!!

  19. Trump wants immigrants to come with wealth just like he came into the world with wealth. His memory is gone, he forgets his family came to America with little to nothing with his Grandfather fleeing military service in Bavaria. Maybe this policy should be applied to his ancestors and send him back.

  20. When my father and his father came over here from Europe in 1912 they had to prove they could support themselves!!! That was the rule for decades!!! So why do I as a taxpayer have to shell out for welfare for immigrants – legal and illegal – when I’m having a hard time making ends meet for my family???!!! This is where liberalism gets us – pretty soon the middle class will disappear bec. the country is going bankrupt!!!A national debt of $22 Trillion???!!! STOP!!!
