    A greater issue which he is not championing is immigration. Our immigration policy is broken. We now have over 30 million illegal immigrants and set to break records with over a million more this year alone. We have a porous border and everyone in the world knows it. The numbers of illegal immigrants that most of the media covers is only counting the ones that are apprehended. They say very little to nothing about the many that do not turn themselves over to authorities. This has and will put a tremendous drain on Americas financial and social well-being. Every American man, woman and child will in some way be affected because this will cost the taxpayer more every year. Our quality of life will diminish, safety will be a greater concern and many programs from state to government will get slashed or altogether dismantled to pay for it all. America has always and will continue to be a compassionate nation but we can do nothing to help others if we place ourselves in dire straights. Another problem is that they come because there is work here in America. Businesses and private citizens should not be hiring illegal immigrants. I don't see this governor going after these folks. People may not agree with everything President Trump proposes but on the issue of immigration he is spot on and his vision mirrors the vision of our Border Security folks and who would know better. Finally, for those who still think we should have open borders consider this. Terrorists have the perfect opportunity to infect people with ebola or other serious viruses and send them across the border undetected with the help of the cartels. There is currently a major outbreak of ebola in the war-torn country of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Incubation period is 2-21 days. It would be easy to get to Central America from the DRC and then to America within the incubation period. As these islamic martyrs make the journey they infect others which in turn starts the 2-21 day incubation clock ticking again. Ge the picture. At this governors level, he knows what is happening overseas. He also knows that Border Security has already taken into custody immigrants from the DRC yet he remains silent. This is very serious and the time for easy, completely compassionate solutions is long passed. When the President says this is a national emergency, a crisis, a safety concern of the utmost importance he's not exaggerating. The Democratic Party has stalled and fought the President on everything wasting 3 years and millions of taxpayer dollars in the process. They are putting this country in a very precarious position. People need to remember this come voting time at the city, state and federal levels. As many Democrats need to be voted out of office as possible so this country can get things done. They have already shown that they value their own self-serving interest over the peoples.

    Every American who is able to vote is complicit in these and any future mass shootings. The second amendment is archaic and nonsensical. It is also symptomatic of the USA’s amoral culture.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know you're busy trying to take people's rights away. Perhaps, instead of your negative social agenda, you should have been focused on protecting those kids. That was YOUR job.

    Suddenly, having a KKK member in their party is totally forgivable after Democrats found out Northam would be replaced by a Republican.

    “Inappropriate circumstances” may have led to the workplace toxicity that created this MCI. What are they covering up in building 2? Was the shooter pushed over the edge by bullying? Was there black face and Kkk robes in that office?

    Why not propose a bill that allows employees who are former military or police officers to be designated secret carriers onsite in buildings of work? Why no focus on mental health? Why NO Acknowledgement that he purchases them legally? Why NO acknowledgement that CRIMINALS don't follow LAWS? Nothing you proposed would have prevented our tragity here in VB. UK people are being stabbed or ran over. Evil will do what evil does. & I believe YOU are evil. Why are you still our gov when you support post birth killing of a child? We need to vote this racist antiAmerican jerk out of office.
