Three years ago Mark Horne wrote a post on how the bad economy was making more immigrants leave than stay. At the time (believe it or not) Barack Obama claimed, So we’ve put more Border Patrol on than any time in history and the flow of undocumented workers across the border is actually lower than it’s been in 40 years.

Polls Show a Different Story Than the Media Regarding the Popularity of the Democrats

So far, the Democrats are fully engaged in the pretense of making clothes for the emperor. They go to elaborate lengths to pretend he is not naked and exposed to the voters. The media cooperates with the ruse, pretending that he is handsomely clothed. Only one Democrat has been willing to break ranks and admit the truth.
