As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

    Poll Finds 79% of Registered Voters Believe Illegal Immigration a Problem

    ​Thu, JAN 10th 2019

    POLITICO/Morning Consult conducted a poll January 4-6, 2018, taken before Tuesday’s nationally televised addresses by President Trump, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The poll asked a number of questions on several political topics, including immigration.

    The poll sample was registered voters, 77% of who said immigration should be either a top priority (33%) or an important priority (34%) for Congress. Only 15% said immigration should not be an important priority for Congress, and 8% said Congress should do nothing on immigration.

    Questions were also asked about support for a border wall. Asked how important it was to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, 42% said it was either a top priority (24%) or an important priority (18%). In addition, 11% said building a border wall was not too important a priority. 32% said constructing a border wall on the U.S./Mexico border should not be done. When responses are divided between those that prioritize the building of a border wall and those that do not, the split is 53% to 32%

    When asked to pick among several statements about illegal immigration, 42% of respondents said illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border is a crisis. 37% said the United States is facing a problem with illegal immigration but would not categorize it as a crisis. Only 12% said the United States was not facing a problem with illegal immigration. Taken together, 79% of registered voters polled believe illegal immigration ACROSS the southern border was a problem, with over half of those seeing it rising to the level of a crisis.

    Not unusual for people to consider a criminal to be a problem.

      Of course it is a problem. Framing those desperate enough to risk their lives to do so is where the parties split.

        No,the real issue is whether to do something substantive about it. I couldn’t care less how they are framed in that regard.

          Those 79% are obviously the smart citizens...

            DOJ: 26% of Federal Prisoners Are Aliens

            State-Level Reporting


            Some states have released information about the alien population within their total inmate counts. The FY 2018 Quarter 1 Alien Incarceration Report included information released by the Texas Department of Public Safety regarding aliens in the state's jails. The report notes that this data does not include all aliens in the Texas criminal justice system, but only those who have had prior interaction with DHS.

            Over 250,000 criminal aliens were booked in Texas local jails between June 2011 and April 2018. These individuals were charged with more than 663,000 offenses, including:
            • 1,351 homicide charges
            • 79,049 assault charges
            • 18,685 burglary charges
            • 79,900 drug charges
            • 815 kidnapping charges
            • 44,882 theft charges
            • 50,777 obstructing police charges
            • 4,292 robbery charges
            • 7,156 sexual assault charges
            • 9,938 weapons charges.
            The data from Texas sheds light on the danger posed by criminal aliens to local communities. More states should follow Texas's example and release information such as this to allow policymakers and researchers access to this critical data.

              How it is framed will be part of how we determine what we do. Republicans have been focusing on the minority of criminals who come over the border while democrats have focused on everyone else. If we were to decide what to do based on a strict reading of either party's pitch we would likely have very clear decisions to make.

                  You mean democrats have focused on releasing alien criminals, in the sanctuary city catch and release programs.

                  California has instituted laws to protect alien criminals from deportation, and won't release information on incarcerated illegal alien criminals to federal immigration authorities.

                  Several of these illegal aliens have been released to commit crime, including the murder of Americans?

                  The democrats are the criminals against the citizens and America!

                    Actually, we have the law and elected dems and republicans alike have a duty to secure the country's borders against this illegal invasion. "Illegal" means the law is being broken, ignored, spit upon by those who have sworn to uphold it.

                      The democrats are breaking the law, sanctuary cities everywhere in cities around the Nation.

                      Catch a illegal, throw him in jail, then release him back on American soil?

                      If that isn't a crime, what is?

                        Congressional Republicans are doing nothing - which implies they don't think Democrats are doing anything illegal.
                        The people whining about Democrats looking to the government to solve problems are the same ones who want the government to define marriage, criminalize abortion, slow/stop legal immigration, save farmers, create jobs, etc.

                            April 17, 2018

                            SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - San Diego County leaders voted on Tuesday to join the Trump administration's court challenge to a California law limiting cooperation with federal immigration enforcement, amid a conservative backlash to the so-called sanctuary movement.

                            The Republican-controlled Board of Supervisors voted to direct the county attorney to file a friend-of-the-court brief supporting the administration's lawsuit at the first available opportunity, which is likely to be on appeal, board Chair Kristin Gaspar said.

                            The 3-1 vote during a closed-door session, with one of the five supervisors absent, followed an hour-long packed public hearing on the matter.

                            Texas Ban on "Sanctuary Cities" Can Begin, Appeals Court Rules
                            • March 13, 2018
                            A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that Texas’ ban on so-called sanctuary cities can take effect while legal challenges proceed, concluding that opponents of the measure were not likely to succeed on the merits of their case.

                            In a unanimous ruling, a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit almost completely reversed an August ruling by a federal judge in San Antonio, who had temporarily blocked Texas officials from enforcing the ban.

                            The law in question Senate Bill 4, passed by the Texas Legislature in May 2017 requires police chiefs and sheriffs to cooperate with federal immigration officials, and allows the police to question the immigration status of anyone they arrest. It was passed in response to the proliferation of sanctuary cities, which restrict such cooperation and have gained national attention as President Trump pursues stricter immigration policies.

                              Of course they do. You see it seems the controversial and extremist left wing progressive Guardian newspaper columnist Owen Jones, aided and abetted by the UK media, has massively mis- claimed attendance figures for what he calls a far right demo as opposed to his anti protest (according to the Met Police) . the left are continually making out majorities are minorities.
                              Of course the majority are concerned, despite the left propaganda.
