Matt Gaetz being investigated for trafficking a 17 year old across state lines for the bangin. I sure hope it’s true, but I feel bad for the kid if it IS true.

I miss @Valve1138

He’d have something funny to say about this for sure.

Hey, so maybe the whole Q-cucks-clan conspiracy about pedophiles is true, but it's republicans that are the ones doing it instead of the global hollywood elite and democrat leadership?

"You want to know what the GOP is up to, look at what they're accusing everyone else of"

Aren't they all at the border to observe "the on going crisis" ?
Now would be a perfect time to put up a wall. All around them.

Make it waterproof.

No roof.

to be fair, the border thing is a serious problem. Its not a malicious problem from what i can tell, but it need focus and a solution.

TO BE FAIR.....

Biden didn't have any actual authority to do anything until 20 Jan. though anybody with a working brain could figure out they were gonna start heading this way in droves as soon as the election results kinda sorta looked like they were mostly going his way.
Probably a couple months or so lead time there to anticipate it and get things in place. Maybe a little less but a considerable amount of time anyway.
Trump's people may not have been real cooperative, I don't really know, but they could at least tell everyone in those agencies ok guys, here's the plan, we roll out on the 21st. Don't be sitting around just starting to come up with a plan then, we have one, here it is, be ready. There's gonna be a lot of people coming and not a lot of places to put them.

Of course for something like that to work you would need a plan.

in this case, the consequence is so severe that really good transparency is needed. "we're not ready yet, but heres where we are" is better than "no reporters".

I'm right here, dummy.

Gaetz belongs in a cell with Gym Jordan, and Bubba.

True. I don't know if they were short-sighted/didn't anticipate it or if it's just an inefficient bureaucracy type cluster but it seems to be moving slow.
How long does it take FEMA to get resources into something like a hurricane zone, a week? Certainly not all there by then but at least staged up and on the way, maybe starting to trickle in.
Seems they should be able to get resources to some of these immigration jails in 2 months. Bunch of trailers, fencing, hygiene products, etc. Or setup or lease other facilities somewhere to handle the volume.
Maybe they are in the process of doing that and it's just moving really slow, I don't really know.
Certainly should've anticipated it though, even a Republican named anything other than trump would've seen an uptick in migration after that guy.
Add in democrats being known for being more easy going on immigration and Biden campaigning to undo trumps policies and bring back Obama's dreamer policies and things they had to expect what was coming.
