        1. No one invited anyone anywhere you moron. The same immigration laws that were in effect when Trump was pretending to be president are still in effect. A rush for our border has occurred every spring since 1950. If you aren’t aware of that history, then you should stfu.

        1. Nothing was working “fine” under Trump. He was a train wreck, a traitor, a coward, a white supremacist, a rapist, a Russian dupe, and an all around POS.
