    From your article.

    The lefties gonna lefty.

    In 2020, the removal of illegal immigrants from the interior of the United States was the lowest as an absolute number and as a share of the illegal immigration population since ICE was created in 2003 (Figure 3). Trump failed to increase removals because local jurisdictions refused to cooperate with his administration, continuing a trend begun during the Obama administration in response to their deportation efforts

    And he's going to look pretty good by comparison to what we have now.

    They can come like that now if they do it legally.

    Racist? Other than the 10 Iranians who got crossing the border last month, what were you expecting, Swedes?

    I read all four of your links, and my conclusion is that you didn't read them. ALL of them mention that they don't know if they were undocumented or not.
    It may turn out that they all were, but I still stand by my original statement, until we know more information.
    Maybe you could point out where you find this proof. It certainly isn't in the links you posted. I'll own the 5 minutes of wasted time, and you'll have to own your reading incomprehension.

    You're getting things mixed up, the video posted on this thread isn't from this accident. I don't think anyone has a video for this incident.
    Look longer and type slower..........

    25 people in a car that had all but the driver's seat pulled out. Who else would do that?

    The people who celebrate St Patrick's day come in all colors and stripes, it's really just an excuse to drink and party. Chicago turns its water green and no one really associates it with Irish folks anymore. Better still, all the people who celebrate St Patrick's day still claim to be loyal to America and not a foreign country.

    Of course enforcement is crucial, but there will always be some who escape detection, and there's no indication policy had any effect on this tragedy.

    Small point here, but this is the type of thing that convinces me that the reading comprehension skills, and subsequently the critical thinking skills, are on a decline in this country.
    There were two seats left in the vehicle, driver and front passenger seats. Not a big deal, but just an example of how people don't read critically.
    I don't know who would do that, but it's possible that they pulled the rest of the seats out so they could stuff as many of the migrant workers in a vehicle as they could. That doesn't definitively prove anything, other than they wanted more room for people or whatever.
    And your response didn't address what I said, that the video posted here wasn't of the accident that inspired the original post.
    I spent 35+ years troubleshooting manufacturing equipment and learned that most of the time assumptions get one in trouble....

    1. There are numerous stories about this in the media and the last one I read said all the seats except the driver's were pulled out.

    2. Thinking that 25 people crammed themselves into a car that had its seat pulled out is the work of you possible want to call a migrant taxi is about as believable as Biden getting 80 million votes.

    2A. The end of the link in the first post in this thread mentions a guy laying crosses to raise awareness of immigration rights. That guy right there believes these people are illegal aliens, why should I doubt him?

    3. The video you're referring to was posted by me and I used that as another example of dangerous over packed cars used to smuggle illegal aliens.

    I have read them and you contradict yourself. Now is your chance to set the record straight. Tell us why you hate illegal aliens.

    If you could really read all four of those different accounts from different sources and FAIL to see what happened there, then obviously I'M not the one with a , "comprehension" problem.... :crazy:

    You only have to read the first link from the NY Times. Repeat: The NY Times.

    While we're on the subject, it's only getting worse. Illegals are now super spreaders and we know how much the left hates super spreaders.

    You're right. Frankly, I was surprised to see that being published by THEM....

    Super spreaders are only bad if it’s Republicans. When BLM is rampaging across cities, it’s no big deal. If illegals are crashing the border by the 1000s, it’s also perfectly OK. Covid doesn’t effect you if the reason for not wearing a mask or social distancing is “worthy”. Science is outdone by feelings and emotion.

    Yeah, as if we weren't already having enough big fun with 'the virus', now we're going to be IMPORTING even MORE of it, from south of the border, and, probably new, interesting 'variants', too!
    Thanks, Joe! :banana:

    I'm sure 25 mexicans in an SUV wasn't suspicious at all.

    I do not recall using the word hate or applying the word hate to illegal aliens. I simply consider them to be criminals. You may have ignored the fact that I distinguish between Dreamers and their criminal parents whereas Trumpkins hate them both.

    Sadly for you Biden did get 80,000,000 votes and the Trumpocity got 71,000,000.

    I did hear that seats were pulled out of the afore Expedition which was built to seat 8. It is not unusual around here where we do have other varieties of Latinos for Latino types to over stuff vehicles.
