Louder for the people our Governor is paying with our tax dollars to "patrol" the border in Texas. Again. Because there's absolutely nothing we need to pay for with that money here in Iowa.
f*ck the poor and their kids.

Interesting to see Leguizamo make a similar argument that Biden/Democrats need to do a better job of reaching Hispanic/Latinx populations because they will be the deciding factor in the election. I don't know that failing to reach any single voter segment will be the Democratic downfall, but failing to win over multiple segments that tend to tip left--the poor; Black; Latinx--sure will.

I love how often we're told that "insert group here aren't a monolith" and then immediately we talk about how said group isn't being courted.

I don't understand? These things don't contradict.

I just find it amusing when the talking heads will say how Hispanic voters don't really vote in a uniform block (they used to be very reliably Christian/Catholic, but now it's more of a mix, so you can't appeal to their religion and hope to garner lots of Hispanic votes), and then they will immediately say that a candidate needs to reach out to them.
