    Could it be *gasp* fantasy propaganda? (Designed to trick people into what they want)

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson
    Proverbs 3:5-8

    That's exactly what it is but it backfired. How many Dems didn't go vote in Michigan because she was safe by five points and the state had been blue since the 80s? Trump won by .27%. That's less than a percent. If the polls had shown it was tight people might have behaved differently.

    Then how does "Patrick jane" explain why Donald Trump and conservative "birthers" spent the last 8 tears trying to convince the American public that Barrack Obama wasn't born in America and therefore constitutionally diaqualified to serve as President?

    We grant Permanent Residence status to about 1,000,000 people a year. And Permanent Residents can sponsor certain other relatives for Permanent Residency.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perman...United_States)
    There's a handy chart halfway down.

    So, if we Green Card the DACAs do we tell all the other people who've been working on immigrating for a decade or more that the pattern is full because we just burned up the quota giving green cards to people who came here illegally?

    Or do we expand the quota?

    What should the quota be?

    Should it be 2 million? 3 million? We have a population of 323 million, so 3.23 million would be 1%. If you made one state out of the new arrivals it would be ranked 30th in population.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._by_population

    I'd favor blowing up the quota, but, if you reward illegals again and again then people will just keep coming illegally knowing you're bound to have another amnesty sooner or later. And putting law breakers ahead of law followers is a bad precedent.

    Congress sets the quotas, should we raise or lower them?
    A one time quota increase? I don't have an answer on a long-term increase or decrease in the quota.

    I agree that if you consistently award some type of amnesty then people will keep having an incentive to come in. But I'm not going to support uprooting people that are living peacefully here. I've been reading that Trump could make a deal on DACA as long as it's accompanied by some border control tightening and I think that's something I could support.

    "Patrick jane" would have us believe that "The Donald" and his motley crew of "birthers" spent the last 8 years willingly serving as "the sharp end of the spear" for the Hillary Clinton campaign!

    Did the Founding Fathers really intend that it should be the candidate who receives 3 million fewer votes than his opponent be rewarded with the Presidency!

    Conservatives have claimed that illegal voting was rampant in America for years - and yet they are silent when the candidate with a minority of notes by a wide margin is declared the winner!

    The net result is that 3 million citizens made an effort to vote, only to have their ballots effectively ignored - so much for every vote counts.

    More like the birthers come from both sides of the aisle. And you wonder why?
