I say line the whole border will pillboxes and shoot anyone who tries to cross illegally at a location that is not a checkpoint.

How did the USATODAY get labeled here as a “Center” news source? Didn’t they take a hard left turn with the subjective, anti-Trump headlines during the elections, and ever since? Am I missing something? Appreciate it.

That there is some straight up Russian collision. With a bullet. Definite grounds for impeachment in case all the other contrived BS fails...

Articles are pretty confusing, it's unclear if the border agent knew the Russian was illegally crossing the border or just thought he was. Doesn't seem to matter though as some sort of fight broke out between the Russian and the Border agent. Russian gets shot. Not enough details to understand anything. Can't even tell if the Russian is an American citizen or not.

A wall is a thing we should be putting up more. FYI Tasers are a thing but wouldn't need them if we had better border protection in the first place. Media field day if someone gets taserred with a heart condition. Orange man bad whaaaaaa
