This is not an accident. This is not an anomaly. People are voting with their feet.

America has always been a place that people are trying to get into. They’ll climb fences; risk death; ride rickety boats, makeshift rafts, and even inner-tubes to get here. And in just a couple of years, Obama and the Democrats have turned it into a place that shocking numbers of people are trying to escape.
