Exclusive: Trump team seeks agency records on border barriers, surveillance | Reuters

There is a fact I love here.  “In fiscal year 2015, the latest year for which data is available, border patrol agents apprehended 2,626 illegal migrants on the U.S.-Canada border compared to 331,333 apprehended on the U.S.-Mexico border.”  Think on it.   Far more illegals came over the generally thought of as “White Border” than came illegally over the “Brown Border”.   Bigots picked out the southern border to demagogue on because in their mind that is the land of the “brown people”, and they do not like brown people.  These numbers shows the clear bias and bigotry involved.   Hugs

In a wide-ranging request for documents and analysis, President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team asked the Department of Homeland Security last month to assess all assets available for border wall and barrier construction.

  1. So true! I know quite a few people that have over stayed their visa but because they are blonde and blue eyed, they pass under the radar…

    • Sad. Wish there was no need entirely for all this immigrations stuff. I wish we had a set up like the E.U. does. Where member countries had free borders, and people could freely go back and forth between countries. Hugs
