You are simply trying to change the subject and make it personal. 

I showed that I did not lie, so you attack me. I'm shocked!

You showed nothing.

Look at the damn graph. 2017 is the outlier, not 2018. Crossings plummeted under Trump initially, or may have been misreported. Now back to regular pattern.

Again, reading the graph is real helpful.

So we agree that the number of immigrants crossing the border is increasing?

HST2: We don't have hundreds of Norwegians trying to cross our border illegally.

I don't have anything against the "refugees; I don't know them. But I do know that if they are legitimately seeking asylum why are they not prepared to stay in linguistically and culturally compatible Mexico -- which they have already reached -- and insist on coming to the U.S.

Please drop the rhetorical snark and try to answer my question.

Only the selective outrage on display by the supporters of open borders is new.

It's the lowest since the 1970s. Stop Watching Fox:

Arrests of people trying to cross illegally into the U.S. from Mexico plunged to the lowest level since 1971, as fewer people attempted the trek, the Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday.

Thirteen pages of angst over this POTUS doing something that the two prior POTUS' did. I'm sure if I look hard enough I will find comparable threads to those prior times, right?  :)

There was actually quite a bit of discussion about it, but I guess if you're going to defend a racist demagogue, you have to get in the spirit of it. Well done, sprightly.

Was there? Haven't been able to find the threads. Thanks in advance.

If you're going to lie about me defending anyone, that makes you a liar. Again. Not well done, hst2.

You are lying now.

You have defended Trump by pointing out that two other presidents have done this, so what he is doing is not a big deal.

Point your finger at someone, four are pointing back at you. -_-

It's all right there.

MATIAS ROMERO, Mexico (Reuters) - Impoverished Central American migrants traveling in a “caravan” through Mexico that angered U.S. President Donald Trump said they would stick together for safety even though the group will ends its journey in Mexico City rather than the U.S. border.

C&BP claim the number of immigrants is increasing this year. I never said it has exceeded any past statistics.

'Illegal' crossing attempts at the US Southwest border triple in March from a year ago

•The number of "illegal" crossing attempts at the U.S. Southwest border triple in March compared with a year ago, the government says.

•The number of crossing attempts last month grow 37 percent from February, setting a month-to-month record going back to 2011.

•Overall, government data show there were a total of 50,308 people last month that were apprehended or deemed as "inadmissible" at the border.

It's quite clear from this that Sprightly lied again.

She should do the right thing and apologize.

The article actually stated

While 37 percent is the highest month-over-month increase since 2011, the actual number of people — 50,308 — is lower than what was experienced last fall. For example, October and November 2017 both produced monthly totals exceeding 63,000 attempted crossings.

Damn, they tried to lie and got truth-slapped.

That's what happens when you can read beyond the headline.

I believe I know what is happening. I installed an anti-virus program recently and then this double posting started. I just closed the program and now everything is working just fine
