Wednesday's HOT MIC
Real Border Issues
I was back in my native Arizona last week and having discussions with some people about what goes on there as a result of the porous border. The criminals that Trump spoke about when he kicked off his campaign affect Arizona more than any other border state so I wasn't really appalled at his remarks at the time. In fact, one of the most infuriating aspects of most illegal immigration reporting is that criminal activity is almost completely ignored to prop up the false narrative. Yes, there are a lot of people who come to the U.S. from Mexico to just make a better life for themselves but there are also a lot of very dangerous people who enter this country and don't get sent back because we're more concerned with feelings than with safety. Love or hate Trump, there's no denying that he gets this.
