Another propaganda opportunity for the tight wing. Yes, let's keep ouit those brown people. How Christian. You all do know that Cloud's church supports the John Birch Society, right? How Christian.

George, I bet my last dollar that no one will mention employer penalties for Violating our immigration and employment laws. I bet it won’t be a diverse crowd,Just people waiting to get their ears tickled with “ build the wall “ rhetoric. SMH
