This mess started back in 2013

Tyler (KETK) — All though I agree whole-heartily with legal immigration, I do not like what's going on right now. Illegal aliens are flooding our border and the main problem to me is they are not telling us where they are going or how they are going about their task.
Border patrol agents are so frustrated that even those in uniform are telling media no one would want their jobs because they have been handcuffed and there is no control at the border.
Critics always like to trot out the argument that we are a nation of immigrants and I will tell you I agree. We sure are, always have been or used to be.
We used to have control over immigration. To get in, you had to prove you had a trade, you were not sick and you were going to be able to contribute.
For years, we even stopped immigration of any kind to make sure we had balance. Now, we're evidentially letting anyone in.
The Daily Signal reports more than 600 convicted criminals, including felons, were among thousands of illegal immigrants freed under the Obama administration in advance of 2013 budget cuts mandated under sequestration.
That's according to a new report today from the inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security. That was last year.
The report stated: When the media and Congress began asking questions about the controversial releases in February and March of 2013, the IG says ICE executive leadership rushed answers and, in doing so, gave "inaccurate" information to Congress and the public. Now, it's even worse.
We have no idea what's pouring in. It's chaos.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
