For decades, voters have been lied to by politicians promising to crack down on immigration. We vote and we vote and we vote, and nothing ever changes. Wage-lowering, culture-destroying policies manage to appear in every bill Congress passes.

The bill President Trump signed last Friday is worse than anything Hillary could ever have gotten through Congress.
To mention the two most shocking examples, the bill prohibits Trump from using any Homeland Security funds to build a wall anywhere along the border. Only bollard fencing is permitted -- and even that is allowed in only one small section of the border with the approval of local authorities.
