  1. America MUST DO MORE to halt illegal infiltration (let’s stop calling it immigration because it is an invasion in America and other nations), its illegal infiltration of foreign nationals with ill intent to marginalize a culture and defy assimilation.

    1. More likely is that alot of these were Saudis who were connected to the attempted coup in Riyadh about a week ago. People who are opposed to the new King Salman and his sellout to zionists. Million is ALOT of arrests to suddenly launch for no new reason. This is same thing Erdodog in Turkey did
