Love my beautiful town and all my caring sweet neighbors. Life is good. What a gorgeous day today.

Sorry Joe but I’ll take statistics over your anecdotal cases. All research shows the numbers to be accurate.

I'm for securing the border but I think that the price tag is outrageous for a country that's going broke. It's hypocritical to say you are OK with the wall and against medicaid expansion. We can't afford either.

How many Illegals should have been arrested and weren't? Take NC for example I know The State HP let an illegal who ran passed a stop school bus and had no DL go with only a ticket and another that was involved in an auto accident on 221 that had no DL also was let go with only a ticket. My FIL who has a clean record got pulled over in Boone and his license was expire by almost 2 months and he got arrested. The fact that they may have lower arrest numbers doesn't mean crap other than the cops, and DA didn't want to spend time dealing with them.

Alex Nowrasteh, with the libertarian Cato Institute, analyzed the Texas data to make a comparison of immigrants in the country illegally and native-born residents. In a recent post he noted that in 2015 Texas police made 815,689 arrests of native-born Americans, 37,776 arrests of immigrants in the country illegally and 20,323 arrests of legal immigrants. Given the relative populations for each group, he wrote, “The arrest rate for illegal immigrants was 40 percent below that of native-born Americans.”

In addition, he wrote, the homicide arrest rate for native-born Americans was “about 46 percent higher than the illegal immigrant homicide arrest rate.”

Other research from the Cato Institute attempted to provide national estimates. A study published on June 4 used data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey for 2016 and applied statistical modeling to estimate the number of incarcerated immigrants in the country illegally. It filtered the data using characteristics correlated with being an immigrant in the country illegally, such as whether someone is a noncitizen but has not served in the military or received Social Security income. The research concluded: “Illegal immigrants are 47 percent less likely to be incarcerated than natives.” (And legal immigrants are even less likely to be in jail or prison.)

****, google what percentage of crime is committed by illegal immigrants. Then you’ll maybe figure out how wrong you are.

Today was a very warm day in comparison to the previous days.

The sun is shining, looks like it is going to be a beautiful weekend! Can't wait for the warmer temperatures to come. Also, Punxsutawney Phil saw no shadow so we are in for an early spring.

Not racist at all. I'm just against all these trouble makers returning to America time after time and committing these violent crimes.

Offended, I have to agree with Redskin on this one. I fail to see where building the wall is racist....If you wanted to build a wall around your property to keep out unwanted visitors would you be okay with people labeling you as racist?


Posted 5:23 pm, 02/01/2019

Not racist. Just another way to keep trash out of the country


Posted 7:13 am, 02/01/2019

Not everyone is a Racist like Redskins44


Posted 8:27 pm, 01/31/2019

The wall will get built

My tax liability went down last year! I hope everyone gets good news when they file their 2018 tax returns.

The liquor store is open 6 days a week. They never run low.

I have mostly quiet neighbors.
People say hello or morning in the stores.
