    I'm not saying it wasn't a tragedy and I'm not trying to assess the blame. All I'm saying is I fail to see how you're connecting those two dots of open borders and what happened.
    Biden is tacitly, if not openly encouraging illegals to come across the border. The idea that the border is closed is a farce. Who is the government flying and busing all across the country?

    Even if what you say was true (which is A LOT to just suppose), then it's obvious the people that the government are helping out by flying and busing all over the country did not include the 51 people who died crammed into the back of an abandoned truck.

    You should know better by now than to try and inject common sense into these types of discussions.

    It is true. And yes it did not help those people.

    A sound border policy and not encouraging people to come to the US illegally might have helped them.

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is preparing to cite the United Statesí largest oil field for violating ozone pollution standards, a move that will threaten the end of oil and gas production in the region.

    According to the Texas Governorís Office, the proposed regulations will directly affect the Permian Basin, the largest oil field in the United States, accounting for 95,000,000 gallons of gasoline per day or 40% of the oil produced domestically.

    This would be just one more move from Bidenís administration to impact the lives of every American by reducing the fuel supply and causing gas prices to soar well beyond Bidenís record of $5 per gallon.

    I have decided to become a 1 issue voter, and that issue is to abolish the 4th of July and replace it with Independence day. Independence day will be the first Thursday in July each year, and much like Thanksgiving, everyone will get the Thursday and Friday off so it is always a 4 day weekend. If you can promise me that, you will have my vote.
