Nobody asked but …
A year in, and so far it’s all theatrics. Recently there were raids on 98 convenience stores in 17 states, which netted less than two dozen alleged miscreants (and I wonder what will be the conviction rate, much less the deportation rate). The wall is not being built, DACA is still on the table, and nearly every initiative has encountered rough sledding in the courts.
At this pace, it may take another millennium to rid the home shores of those teeming masses.
How happy must the starry-eyed nativists be? They elected a snake oil merchant, and still have nothing to show for it. Who knew they would show such patience.
