It's CNN but unemotional, that makes a nice change at least:

You're conflating immigration with illegal immigration.

The claim is true- the award winning scientists emmigrated to the US, legally, from the UK and from Finland.

None of them were border hopping illegal aliens, and no border hopping illegal alien has ever won a Nobel Prize..

7 refugees have won Nobel prizes. You can find them in this larger list.

Read this morning that he wants to abolish birthright citizenship of babies born on US soil from non citizens.

Is this true?
Do keep up at the back there

In this debate I particularly love the apparent fact that the 2nd amendment is sacrosanct but the 14th apparently can be ignored at will.

Although I guess the courts might have something to say about that.

He'll look like Geert Wilders of the NL. He often sports an oddly blue tinged hairdo. Brothers from another mother?

A vicious accuser of Justice Kavanough has just admitted that she was lying, her story was totally made up, or FAKE! Can you imagine if he didn’t become a Justice of the Supreme Court because of her disgusting False Statements. What about the others? Where are the Dems on this?
Typical Trump half truth.

Someone sent an anonymous letter to the Senate claiming Kav raped her.

Another lady later claimed she was the anonymous author but this was not true.

So we do not know if the original story was fake as Trump claims or was not.

The lady is Judy Munro-Leighton; myself I do not remember this name from the Kav case, probably she was a minor player.

Thanks, but I was referring to Latin American economic migrants who end up crossing the border illegally because they do not qualify for refugee status.

People generally aren't in a position to win a Nobel Prize when they are laying low, working off the books, not paying taxes, and hiding out from the INS.

Shall I refer you to your post, (the one which I had responded to ), where you posted a meme about immigrant nobel prize winners , directly after quoting Trump's tweet about criminal illegal aliens?!

And you're trying to say that Im the one associating refugees and legal immigrants with criminals? When in my post I clearly mad a distinction between the two to correct your faulty logic?!

After a 'cease and desist' order from Pharrell's lawyers earlier in the week, now a warning from the makes of Game of Thrones...

Wait for the tweets that insist that he wrote the lyrics to Happy and is somehow responsible for GoT's content. His fan base will swallow it whole.

Is this just your opinion or do you have proof such people exist in large numbers?

donald j. Trump@realdonaldtrump

republicans believe our country should be a sanctuary for law-abiding americans – not criminal aliens. And republicans will always stand with the heroes of @icegov, @cbp, and law enforcement!
Of course Trump was conflating criminal aliens with refugees which is why he used the word sanctuary.

sanctuary; noun, "refuge or safety from pursuit, persecution, or other danger"

Interesting article, unauthorized immigrant workers make up 26% of farming, fisheries, and forest workers. So without these illegals these industries would collapse!

Early voter turnout in this year’s midterm election in Texas has reportedly surpassed the entire voter turnout total in the state’s 2014 midterm election.

According to The Texas Tribune, over 4,500,000 people in Texas cast in-person ballots in this year’s early voting period and more than 360,000 people have cast mail-in ballots in 30 counties alone.
Interesting times, so who is the most motivated to vote; Dems or GOP!!

or maybe just magically develop the capability to fill out their paperwork properly, play by the rules and recruit through legal channels?

Especially in fisheries and forestry we are talking about skilled workers. You don't just take a guy off the street and put him at the wheel of an industrial fishing trawler, or give him a chainsaw and expect him to do forestry properly. People with skills like that should have no problems getting jobs legally.

That would mean paying them properly. As we know, not even Trump wants to do that.
