Before Biden’s out of office we’ll have another 40 to 60 million new illegals to feed, clothe and compete with. Biden will be seen as a fool... Even liberals don’t want their cities flooded with people willing to work under the table and using their emergency rooms as their private doctors for $6,000 a visit...
