    Your tax dollars at work. I can't see how anyone puts their trust into a party or our government with all the crap they do.


    "The Biden administration sued Texas to prevent state troopers from stopping vehicles carrying migrants on grounds that they may spread COVID-19, warning that the practice would exacerbate problems amid high levels of crossings on the state’s border with Mexico.

    So Texas, a state where there is no mask mandate and where less than half of the population are fully vaccinated, is making state troopers block migrants while using COVID-19 as the excuse? It's almost like the purpose is to stop migration rather than COVID, isn't it?

    Mr. Abbott sure seems to have his priorities in order.

    No Texas trooper's are stopping them.

    However....The Biden administration sued Texas to prevent state troopers from stopping vehicles carrying migrants on grounds that they may spread COVID-19.

    Isn't it ironic how we go from a job shortage to a labor shortage?
    In my opinion its just a endless supply of people not wanting to work.

    People are working. Just not those crap jobs. They've found other things that are better and less demeaning.

    I worked many crap jobs growing up. Crap jobs pay more bills than no job.

    I've heard Etsy stores are common, as is selling on Ebay. Monetizing hobbies. Things people like doing I hear a lot.

    So if they are doing well with them, they don't need crap jobs. However some people aren't doing anything and those craps jobs pay more bills than not doing anything.

    Those crap jobs often and typically don't pay the bills.

    Working any job pays more bills than not working crap jobs if it brings in money even if it isn't $15 an hour?

    Texas will handle things as Texas will.

    The illegals need to go.

    You get who you vote for.

    I hope the Texas government gives Biden (or more accurately the people controlling Biden) the middle finger here.



    He's literally giving the crime cartels free access into the states by tying the hands of law enforcement.

    Send them to California. I don't give a rats *** about that state.

    That would be a disaster. We're so dependent upon them as a society that, yes, things would look very different. Especially with food, as agriculture would change overnight.

    Let’s not pretend that the state of Texas depends on illegal aliens. It doesn’t, at all. I grew up along the border and have lived all over the state (among other places). There is no “disaster” in deporting illegals that do not belong here in the first place.

    Because the immigration issue is based on federal law, not state law, thus being under federal jurisdiction.

    So, state after state and community after community are complaining about not having enough lower-income workers, but you want all these "illegals" removed?
