  •  He thinks the proper goal is a 100-foot-high fence (2+ / 0-)

    What the teahadists want out of an immigration bill is:

    (1) A giant fence for which their contractor-grifter friends can overcharge the taxpayers.

    (2) Permanent underclass, non-citizen status for as many brown people as they can get away with stigmatizing.

      Think of the Turkish immigrants in Germany (and elsewhere in the EU), many 3rd generation, still not citizens, and a permanent underclass. So where else does Ted "Crazy Troll" Cruz take his examples from?

    •  Perhaps no need for the giant fence (0+ / 0-)

      MJB, couldn't he achieve those financially lucrative goals by shifting his attention to boats?'

      There is more than one way to get from Central and South America to the U.S. What about coming in on a boat?

      Hence the need for a giant net stretching from somewhere close to, but NOT, Florida, to the southern end of Texas.

      And then another one on the other side, from the southern end of California to...Hawaii, say.
