    When it comes to people in the country without proper documentation, the majority of them didn't cross the Mexican border at all. Most of them came to the United States legally — but then don't leave.

    About 700,000 travelers to the United States overstayed their visas in fiscal 2017, the most recent year for which the Department of Homeland Security has published figures. DHS estimated that, as of Sept. 30, 2017, the end of that fiscal year, more than 600,000 of those travelers were still in the U.S.

    During that same year, there were just 300,000 apprehensions along the Southern border, according to Customs and Border Protection — the lowest number since 1971.

    Visa overstays have outnumbered people who enter the country illegally at the Southern border every year since 2007, according to a report by the Center for Migration Studies.

    less apprehensions only means that more illegals are getting in and the wall is more needed than ever.

    White House serves fast food on silver platters for Clemson celebration

    White House serves fast food to visiting Clemson (0:35)

    WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump paid tribute to college football champion Clemson for winning the College Football Playoff National Championship at a White House ceremony Monday evening.

    Trump said he paid for their meal of "American fast food'' because of the partial government shutdown. He did not disclose the tab.

    Hunter Renfrow called at the time "the best meal I've had in a year."

    Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has nominated this season's undefeated Tigers as the best college team ever. Trump called them a "great team, an unbelievable team."

    The president lauded the Tigers for their 44-16 win over Alabama last week, singling out Renfrow, cornerback A.J. Terrell and defensive coordinator Brent Venables.

    He saved his highest praise for Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence,

    "Oh, I want to be the agent for that tall, handsome quarterback," Trump said. "Six-foot-seven, they say great athlete, and he's accurate. That's nice."

    Before going to the White House, coaches and players toured some landmarks in Washington, including the Lincoln Memorial.

    "What a fun day it's been," Swinney said. "It's an honor to be a part of this tradition, and to be honest with you, it's really cool that football can create an opportunity like this."

    Sounded strange this morning when I heard Trump say he was planning to get this fast food and pizza for the Clemson team.

    Sounded like it worked out really well and the team had fun.

    Picturing all the China and other serving stuff bring used for fast food burgers and fries. Funny.

    Is the wall going to save as much money in the long run as it's going to cost up front?

    The wall is only an issue for two reasons.

    1. It's political. It's Trump's big issue that his base wants, and getting it done would be a huge win for him like Obama care was for Obama.

    2. It's about money. Supposedly, undocumented immigrants cost the united States a lot of money. So if a multi-billion dollar wall is worth it, immigrants must be extremely fucking expensive.

    It's not about drugs or terror. No one in the government gives a shit about those issues.

    Hard to imagine the Republicans joining forces with the Democrats to reopen the government, but that does sound a bit more likely than Pelosi giving Trump his money or Trump admitting defeat.

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/1/10/18175251/senate-republicans-shutdown

    “The only group to possibly crack, if the pressure is great enough, are Senate Republicans looking ahead to 2020 elections,” says Eileen Babbitt, a professor of conflict analysis and resolution at Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. “If they feel the president is finally going too far off the rails, they could publicly break with him. That would truly be an inflection point, as it will signal a major split in the Republican coalition.”
