    So he’s not even a competent bigot.

    • Yeah, like we expected otherwise.

    • BlackGayVeganAtheist

      well, to be fair Trump needed them to work illegally at his properties

      • Reality.Bites

        Americans just don’t know how to make authentic Mexican bread bowls for Taco Salads.

      • bzrd

        got to fill up his cronies private jails at tax payer expense

    • Reality.Bites

      He’s supposedly a competent lover but we only have Ivanka’s word on that

    • ccc

      Not quite, Treant. What is really happening is that there is an even more significant reduction in the desire to cross illegally in the age of Trump. My fiance and I just left Baja California, MX while on vacay and we heard that several times. We really miss Baja!

      • Treant

        That makes sense, too…but he’s definitely incompetent. 🙂

        • ccc

          He is good at one thing: enriching himself…

          • Treant

            I’m not so sure about that, either. Data showed he’d have done better in an index fund than he ever did with his “deals.” And he’s lost money since this “president” thing.

          • ccc

            True that. I was referring to the his time as president. The tax cut scam has giveaways to line his pockets.

    • Todd20036

      I was thinking that too. This isn’t because Trump loves illegals, but because he appointed idiots who have no idea what they are doing.

  • Jake

    Mexicans Aren’t Going Away

  • olandp

    Someone has to clean up the Dotard’s mess. /s

  • bkmn

    He’s not deporting them, instead he is filling for-profit prisons/hellholes with them, so his buddies make billions

    • Tread

      That’s why deportations dropped. I hope the Washington Post and New York Times are looking into the “deportation centers” to see what’s actually going on with the deportees. From what I’ve heard, they are literal hell holes, especially in the Southwest.

      • bkmn

        Rep. Pramila Jayapal is introducing legislation to mandate standards for the detention centers but I don’t expect it to pass in today’s GOP controlled legislature.

        • Tread

          What the fuck do we need detention centers for? People shouldn’t be yanked out of their fucking homes and lives to make fragile Fox News viewers feel “safer.” It’s inhumane how these people are being treated.

    • zhera

      The goal isn’t to get them out. It’s to keep them as slaves, with no rights, no voting, no hope. This makes the white poor men feel better about themselves. The border wall will never happen; only walls around ‘detention centers’.

  • Lazycrockett

    The number of Mexicans coming to the US has been declining for years now.

    • Ninja0980

      Yup.
      Obama actually got grief for the fact he increased deportations etc.

    • William

      The last year more so. Or should that be less so?

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    LOL Obama beats him in every single thing possible, even this.

  • Joe in PA

    Hmmm, I wonder if he’ll see this on Fox and Friends tomorrow morning?

    Bwahahahahaha. As if.

  • Uncle Mark

    Please don’t advertise this to the Dotard. He will enthusiastically step up the gestapo tactics of ICE to change that fact

    • iambu

      They should just tell him about the 152,000 and stop there. He can brag about the yuuuge number.

  • Bambino

    The rest was hired by him working at Mar-a-Largo.

        Ok, you win the internet today.

        Or grifted by the mega churches.

          Gawd, I read that as “maga churches”.

          • Randy Ellicott

            same thing…

          • Bambino

            Quelle est la différence?

          • Tread

            Either, or, at this point.

  • Bambino

    Still two more days before 2018. He still can make it In Memoriam 2017 reel. Seeing that he love attention. Someone should tell him, its the bestest, bigliest attention of them all.

    • Uncle Mark

      I was hoping that someone would convince the orange attention-whore to dress up in tin foil and drop him from Trump tower to compete with the Time Square New Years ball

      • Bambino

        It’s easier just let the ball drop on him.

  • BlackGayVeganAtheist

    No president protected our border better than Obama. PERIOD!

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    OT: somewhat good news. Some states are raising their minimum wage.

    https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/18-states-will-raise-minimum-wage-january-1-heres-expect-205313683.html

    “Colorado, Hawaii, New York, Vermont, Rhode Island, Arizona, California, Washington and Michigan round out the other states that will enact a higher minimum wage as of January 1. The median increase is $0.50 per hour of work.

    Meanwhile, New Jersey, Ohio, Florida, Alaska, Montana, South Dakota, Minnesota and Missouri will see a slight bump — a median of $0.15, thanks to automatic increases to keep pace with price growth.

    Nineteen states bumped up their minimum wage in 2017. Many of them are incremental increases, with timelines of 3-6 years to reach the ultimate goal.

    The state of California and New York City and Seattle are all on track to reach a $15 minimum wage by 2022.”

  • Snownova

    Bwahahahahaha

  • DaddyRay

    Those pesky facts getting in the way of right wing narratives

  • Bambino

    You know the dotard is going to claim he scare them into deporting themselves hence the lower percentage and he save America tax payers money…yada yada yada….(Copyrighted!!! In case the shit head steal my reasons.)

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Huh, I wonder if pushback by farmers and the like had anything to do with it.

    • DaddyRay

      Oh come on – you know it was Obama’s fault and the Deep State

  • Treant

    OT: It’s 63.5 degrees in here right now. Yeah, that’s a bit cold, but after yesterday, it feels absolutely heavenly.

    • Silver Badger

      As we mature, we all keep better at colder temperatures. Tightens the skin, keeps the decomposition down to a minimum.

    • you know, just fuck you. “a bit cold.” my current temp is 8F, under two feet of snow. 😉

    • Mark_in_MN

      A bit cold? That is really quite nice and quite comfortable.

      • Treant

        66 now, but it’s a balmy 22 degrees out there.

    He even fails at the things he brags about.
    His base doesn’t care. They’re as deluded as he is.

  • BobSF_94117

    Not only are the numbers way down, the bulk of Trump’s deportees are otherwise law-abiding illegal aliens, some of them here for decades. Obama, in contrast, focused on real criminals and more dangerous people.

    • DaddyRay

      That is a very important distinction to make

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        I still remember the idiot woman who voted for Dump then cried when her hubby got deported. I still want to spit on her.

        • drbrentzenobia

          There is a contagious mental illness that has spread among Trump supporters. It’s far beyond ordinary stupidity. It’s a toxic mix of denial, ignorance, aggression, a complete breakdown of critical thinking skills or even common sense, paranoia, grandiosity, and above all, deep-seated tribalism.

          And unfortunately it’s spreading around the world.

  • ChrisMorley

    OT but related madness

    Trump warns: no deal to protect Dreamers without cash for border wall

    – President says any deal must be paired with funding for controversial wall
    – Democrats in Congress insist wall alongside border with Mexico is a non-starter

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/29/trump-dreamers-daca-immigration-border-wall

    • DaddyRay

      I think we all could see that one coming

      Why should we need to provide funding for a wall when Mexico was to pay for it

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      It’s a hostage situation: “pay me the ransom for the wall or the kids get whacked”

  • another_steve

    I’ve left the Anger Phase of Trump-mourning and am heavy now into the Embarrassment Phase.

    I read the newspapers and watch the TV news these days with a deep and profound embarrassment for what Trump has done to the institution of the U.S. Presidency.

    Let’s review:

    Obama: Deported more illegal immigrants, while focused more on removing criminals.

    Dumbass Rethuglicans: Tossing out workers and settled families who are contributing to their communities.

  • Lantor

    If Trump were as competent as Obama, we’d all be marching to the camps about now. Thank Gods Trump is stupid. If he didn’t have access to the Judicial and the nuclear codes, I’d say let him serve out the rest of his 4 years.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Of course they are dropping.
