Our Southern Border

What are they thinking! How can this be? Our southern border- unguarded and free. "Come one, come all," he approvingly says- This- from the mouth of our now US Pres! We'll provide you with money, bus tickets too- and even airplanes to transport you to one of our States, whereby you can enroll for benefits paid- through taxpayer toll. No testing for Covid or any disease; just pass through quickly, we're here to appease! No checking arrests, convictions- once jailed; with us, you start fresh- bad incidents, veiled. What are they thinking? This just isn't right- hundreds of migrants sneak in day and night; some bringing drugs, others committing crimes- causing huge problems and uncertain times. What are they thinking? How can this be? To this plan- most citizens will disagree- pushed to the back seat with this insane rule- making each patriot feel like a fool. Perhaps it's the votes that they're looking for? Dangle the prizes- and see ballots soar to cinch the elections coming this year? Is this what they're thinking? Oh, such a fear!! Great were the good days when immigrants came- helped build our nation with pride and acclaim; followed the process- gained citizenry; loved being part of their newfound country.
