"Applicants should have to pay a fine and back taxes, document their work history, demonstrate English proficiency and knowledge of US history and civics, and provide a clean background check."

  - Maybe we could start a federal agency that manages that, screens them, makes sure they come in in manageable numbers in an orderly way that is not disruptive to the success of the country they come in for.  Oh that's right, we already have that and nobody is following or enforcing the rules.

George Bush broke his own law, causing the crisis we have today:
Secure Fence Act of 2006 - "Directs the Secretary of Homeland Security, within 18 months of enactment of this Act, to take appropriate actions to achieve operational control over U.S. international land and maritime borders, including: (1) systematic border surveillance through more effective use of personnel and technology, such as unmanned aerial vehicles, ground-based sensors, satellites, radar coverage, and cameras; and (2) physical infrastructure enhancements to prevent unlawful border entry and facilitate border access by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, such as additional checkpoints, all weather access roads, and vehicle barriers.
Defines "operational control" as the prevention of all unlawful U.S. entries, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband."
At this point, George Bush has the support of neither party.

".No one expected officer Chauvin to testify, but if you are about to be found guilty of murder for judgment you exercised in the heat ofvthe moment on the job, why would you not insist on telling your side of the story?"

perhaps the defense was concerned this would open the door so that his past record and complaints of brutality would be presented to the jury.

From what I hear, defense was afraid of Chauvin facing a cross examination by the prosecutor of the original 9 minute video made into broken down, minute by minute, second by second.  'Officer, he hasn't moved or shown signs of life in 20 seconds, what are you thinking now as you continue to hold him with the weight of your knee on his neck area?  At one minute, two minutes, three minutes, jury watching the film for the umpteenth time, what are you now thinking about the last time he said he can't breathe?  Advance the video, stop the video, what you thinking now as you continue the hold?  And so on. Did you check for a pulse?  Is he still resisting?  Did you think he could even get up on his own if you let up on your hold.  Did you think to roll him over - after another officer suggested putting him on his side.  Could he pull a knife or a gun with his hands handcuffed behind his back.  What other holds have you been trained on?  Wouldn't one of those have worked here, after he has been still for 4 minutes, 5 minutes?  In the entire incident, did he try to harm an officer or anyone else? If he started to get aggressive at this point, you have 3 more officers with you, do you think you could handle that possibility, and so on.  What if the ambulance did not come at all and he had not moved or struggled, when would you have changed the position...

pay some back taxes but basically reward them for breaking the law :

as always he tries so hard to be gracious to Democrats and offers the loser Madeline Albright of an example of an immigrant who I guess helped America?

what have Bushes ever done other then concede
  never any fight back
  always pretend they are gracious and above the fray

  all the while the party of conservatism is withering on the vine and almost dead.
  has he spoken about critical race theory trans in womens sports
  our adversaries China etc
 it may be a MSM thing that we only hear him state something that in end results concedes more to the left

thanks to that thinking we are where we are today

That should be the Bushes legacies
  appeasement , retreat and concede
  till we are driven off the cliff

Good time to buy...SOPR indicator discussed before.
