Nineteen Republican senators are heading to the US southern border in Texas, amid the flood of illegal immigrants and asylum-seekers.
That's three quarters of Senate Republicans.

“ That's three quarters of Senate Republicans.” No: 19 out of 50 is a shade under 40%. A sizable percentage, yes, but not 75%.
Actually 19 out of 25 (Senate Republicans, not entire Senate) is 76%...
A border patrol agent said they're sending covid positive migrants to a motel it was on real America's voice! No doctors or help there!

Blah, blah, blah. It's a broken record, skips included. We've heard this story line before. This is nothing more than a campaign photo op for bilious bloviators.
We don't need to KNOW anything. We already KNOW because we have seen this movie before ad nauseam. We need solutions and we need them fast.
We know how it ends, or doesn't. Their hands in our pockets, for MORE MONEY, MORE MONEY, MORE MONEY. It is always the same. And they always DO NOTHING. They always blame the other side when they are two halves of the same coin, the UNIParty
We gave them the House, the Senate and the Presidency and they pi$$ed it all away..
JUST SAY NO to more money for housing and food and health care and vaccines and testing,. It all inflates outrcost s of those same necessities and it is never ending.
SEND THEM HOME. This is NOT OUR PROBLEM!
THIS INVASION MUST END.
Call in the troops to fortify what is left of the border.
FINISH THE WALL.
Grow-a-set and DO SOMETHING.

Excellent. Be great if the brought back a bunch of footage to be shown on FOX news.
Great find again Sharyl.. Interesting, Democrats won't be attending.
I thought it sounded familiar. Like Geraldo Rivera on tv telling ALL the info the enemy might want during shock & awe from 2003. If your going, go in and see wants going on. Don't tell them WHEN you will be there! Typical government stupidity.
