We will see if this actually happens.  Probably end up as well as building the wall or locking her up.

Sadly the main reason is decades of American interference in their affairs and the US consumption of drugs forced into a black market by their war on drugs. 

I made a post about a week ago, where I laid a large percentage of the "border problem" at the feet of the misguided "War on Drugs". IMO, decriminalize possession of all types of drugs. Legalize recreational drugs. Sell them the same way you do other controlled substances like cigarettes and booze. Tax them.....

 

I think a big portion of the border issue goes away after that....

Biden says Trump should not receive intelligence briefings due to his 'erratic behavior'

"What impact does he have at all, other than the fact he might slip and say something?" Biden said during an interview with CBS News.
 

President Joe Biden said that former President Donald Trump should not receive intelligence briefings even though they typically have been given to other former presidents.

 

Biden told CBS News in an interview that Trump was "unfit to be president" and his "erratic behavior" is why he should not have access to the nation's classified information.

 

"I think not," Biden said when asked if Trump should receive intelligence briefings. "Because of his erratic behavior unrelated to the insurrection."

 

“You’ve called him an existential threat. You’ve called him dangerous. You’ve called him reckless,” CBS News' Norah O”Donnell said to Biden in a clip released Friday.

 

"Yeah, I have. And I believe it," Biden responded.

 

Biden added, "I just think that there is no need for him to have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him an intelligence briefing? What impact does he have at all, other than the fact he might slip and say something?"

 

In 2018, President Trump stripped the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, which ignited a firestorm of criticism that the president was punishing high-profile critics.

 

“The President was expressing his concern about former President Trump receiving access to sensitive intelligence, but he also has deep trust in his own intelligence team to make a determination about how to provide intelligence information if at any point former President Trump requests a briefing,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in an emailed statement.

 

Biden, a former Senator from Delaware, did not comment on how he would vote in Trump's upcoming Senate impeachment trial for allegedly inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, but said he is focused on pushing his aid package through Congress, including a new round of stimulus checks and raising the minimum wage.

 

"Look, I ran like hell to defeat him because I thought he was unfit to be president. I've watched what everybody else watched, what happened when that crew invaded the United States Congress. But I'm not in the Senate now. I'll let the Senate make that decision," he said.

I don't see any benefit of giving classified information to a domestic terrorist with a lot of personal debt and a history of collusion with Putin and MBS.

I always suspected that when you were talking about how good powder is in Whistler.

You were really not talking about the snow were you?
