If the wall would solve the problem of undocumented residents, Republicans would have zero interest in building it. If it were possible to deport all 12 million undocumented residents, Republicans would have zero interest in doing so. If we could deport undocumented criminals and allow the rest to work here legally, without fear, Republicans would have zero interest in doing it, because it would horrify them. The interest of the Republican Reich is served only if the problem remains the same. Republicans practice the hypocrisy of exploitation.

You could also have tagged this with GOP Greed, because that is the motivation. They don't set out to be hypocrites - they become hypocrites because their respectable-sounding priniples (there days, barely respectable) don conform to their money-making activities. If they realize there's a discrepancy (unlikely) or if it is pointed out to them (more likely but still not certain, they get angry at the person who pointed it out.

RESIST AND PERSIST!

What I find most concerning, is the safety and health of these brave people who have come out to report this to the authorities. dt doesn't give two sheets about these folks, who have worked tirelessly for him, for years. He doesn't care one itoa about them. Glad to see they have legal representation too.

thanks! hear tRump is now saying he could declare a national emergency and build the wall......I say, go for it if it will open up the government....I suspect his national emergency could be tied up in the courts for well beyond his time in office

Hate to tell the idiot that the big drug dealers bring their drugs in mainly by boats and planes. That a wall isn't going to fix the issue. The Border Patrol catches the ones that are brought in by vehicles and on human bodies..
These immigrants want to work, not given freebies. They are willing to do the jobs that Americans hate doing.
tRump is saying he can make this carry on for years?? He's really off his rocker..
Thanks TomCat

The question that keeps popping here is “Were Drumpf and other Republicans aware that they were employing illegal immigrants?” To which the answer can only be “Yes”, if they continue to do so after the first stories about this surfaced two years ago. When Mar-a-Lago came under scrutiny of the media because Drumpf spent more time there than at the White House, the employment of illegal immigrants also got a lot of attention too.

I distinctly remember reading about those odd little ads hidden deep within the Palm Beach Post here at Politics Plus which ended with the usual platitude that it would looked into. If there are still undocumented immigrants employed by Drumpf and his family, it is again obvious that they can get away with it and they’ll keep on making money by exploiting people because they they have a system working in favour of them.

Hypocrisy no longer covers this behaviour, that word is far too weak for people condoning, propagating, or even practising, modern-day slavery.

Daily Kos has an article, Investigators now have fake documents reportedly given to immigrant workers by Trump resort, which provides additional information. As Lona says, “…“Were Drumpf and other Republicans aware that they were employing illegal immigrants?” To which the answer can only be “Yes””. I agree with her. This from Daily Kos:

“Remember former Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen’s December quote that “nothing at the Trump Organization was ever done unless it was run through Mr. Trump,” [emphasis added] now that the FBI and New Jersey investigators are reportedly “scrutinizing” allegations around Trump’s Bedminster golf club, following claims from immigrant workers that members of the resort’s management were, in true Trumpian form, engaged in brazenly criminal activities.”

And the modeling agency — was Melania Trump part of his modeling agency? As I recall reading, she arrived on a visitor’s visa but began working as a model fairly quickly — in contravention of her visa.

As to the Polish workers, I read a piece awhile back where their day to day life was described. They had not been paid but were still required to work. With no money, they slept at the construction site huddled together to stay warm.

All of these people wanted nothing more than an opportunity at a better life, but instead they received low wages and abuse, with deportation held over their heads like a sword of Damocles.

Trump’s own words demonstrate how he operates: “Real power is, I don’t even want to use the word: ‘Fear.’” It is evident that the undocumented workers were afraid of being deported. I can quite imagine that the managers and other workers at Trump’s businesses might also be afraid of losing their jobs if they didn’t do what Trump expected.

Lona: “Hypocrisy no longer covers this behaviour, that word is far too weak for people condoning, propagating, or even practising, modern-day slavery.” — And the slave master’s lash is fear and deportation.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

It's alright for him to make money from hiring immigrants, and we must remember Trumpys Family were immigrants or he wouldn't even be here today! As all of ours were!
His wife doesn't even count as an immigrant to him!
But it's okay as long a he can Stuff his own Pocket's
RESIST
Thank you TomCat
