Trump is taking over the WebDiplomacy forums
Somehow, his move for power has infested us even here. Is there any thread since he's been elected that doesn't have a mention or side reference to Trump by the second page? Yeah...I'm guilty of it too.

Trump to publish weekly list of crimes by immigrants

Not that much since most illegals pay social security taxes by withholding and don't get their benefits. Cities in some places get cheap labor because the illegals can't complain.

In Arizona, the landscaping company that did the capitol building under a state contract used illegal aliens for workers for years.

"The National Research Council (NRC) estimated in 1996 that immigrant households (legal and illegal) create a net fiscal burden (taxes paid minus services used) on all levels of government of between $11.4 billion and $20.2 billion annually.7 "

@JamesYanik - That included legal immigrants who are legally able to use government services. Most illegals don't use government services so they aren't creating a fiscal burden. So that study doesn't support your point.

"Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game because they almost always turn out to be—or to be indistinguishable from—self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."

I also had the impulse to call a teenager stupid when reading a thread on this forum. OF COURSE there are a lot of stupid political ideas being expressed here...you're talking to people who have nothing better to do than talk about politics on a forum for a boardgame website that's read by a tiny fraction of people. This is like posting on Facebook, only more useless. Which is fine if you want it to be a hobby, but it's a total waste of outrage.

From what I'm reading on WSJ (I would link the article, but you can only read so far without a subscription, I'm only able to read it through the Twitter app), it seems there's precedent to challenge the executive order, since the president is unilaterally threatening federal funds. The federal funds being withheld have to:
a) be related to the same purpose they were granted in the first place, and
b) go through Congress.

arrest the offenders! if the undocumented workers were not available they would have to pay more and use legal labor; and what is wrong with that?

@"arrest the offenders! if the undocumented workers were not available they would have to pay more and use legal labor; and what is wrong with that?"

Well you would have a group of marginalised people being deprived of work.

I mean if the American dream is 'anyone can be successful, if you just work hard enough' - you have to abandon this, and say, only someone people can be successful, because we don't like people migrating here and working hard. It hurts the local workers who need higher wages...

Did i mention how this is a very good divide and conquer tactic? Highlight the difference between working class whites and working class non-whites. (Cause you can't tell where someone was born just by looking at them, but you can tell what colour their skin is...). A great mechanism for pushing race relations off the edge!

(And of course it hurts the employers who have been getting a great deal exploiting migrant labourers... which may have both positive and negative side-effects)

I hope they send in the national guard, and the Californian's armed their citizens to protect them from the dreadful federal government. It would be nice to see a well-regulated militia bringing back some meaning to the 2nd amendment...

Leon, ND, why exactly do you favour civil war? (Or indeed the redistribution of wealth from successful Californians to rural red states? I thought you neo-cons hated the wealth redistribution... That is Socialism!)
