‘Shoot them all at the border and call it good’: DMV worker suspended over viral Facebook post

‘Shoot them all at the border and call it good’: DMV worker suspended over viral Facebook post

An Oregon Department of Transportation worker is on administrative leave after posting a comment to Facebook saying immigrants who try and cross illegally into the U.S. should be shot at the border. Lori McAllen’s post reads: ‘I personally think they should shoot them all at the border and call it good... it'll save us hardworking AMERICANS billions of dollars on our taxes!! ;)' Ironically, the header of her now deleted Facebook profile says “I don’t have room in my heart for drama, disrespect or hate...either love your life or make a change!’ Those who were outraged by her comment flooded ODOT with calls and on Thursday, the agency said it is investigating the matter. McAllen, who has worked for the DMV for almost a year, has been suspended until further notice. “An employee linked to an offensive Facebook post is on leave while we investigate. We take this matter very seriously and very personally,” ODOT said in a statement. “The comment doesn't reflect our agency values and is disturbing and hurtful. Thank you for your patience as we complete the investigation.” (Facebook) (Facebook) Many hope that McAllen is ultimately fired. “Administrative LEAVE? This hate filled racist wannabe MURDERER should have been fired IMMEDIATELY,” writes Angelique Smith. Alex Garcia says, “Why ODOT is having this horrible woman on vacations? Paying her time off, are you also planning to pay for a beach trip?”

Trump: GOP should give up on immigration until after 2018 elections

Trump: GOP should give up on immigration until after 2018 elections

A day after Republicans in the House defeated one more conservative immigration reform plan, and delayed action until next week on a second bill because of a lack of GOP votes, President Donald Trump on Friday suggested a different avenue entirely – urging Republicans in Congress to drop the issue until after the November elections. “Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November,” the President tweeted early on Friday morning, saying the answer was simple – get more GOP lawmakers in the 2018 mid-term elections. “Elect more Republicans in November and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive Immigration Bills anywhere in the world,” Mr. Trump pledged, as he blamed Democrats and the Senate rules, which would force him to get 60 votes to do what he wants on immigration. Mr. Trump’s suggestion came as GOP leaders were still looking for a magic legislative formula on immigration reform, as the issue has divided Republicans in both the House and Senate. Even if we get 100% Republican votes in the Senate, we need 10 Democrat votes to get a much needed Immigration Bill – & the Dems are Obstructionists who won’t give votes for political reasons & because they don’t care about Crime coming from Border! So we need to elect more R’s! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2018 Elect more Republicans in November and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive Immigration Bills anywhere in the world. Right now we have the dumbest and the worst. Dems are doing nothing but Obstructing. Remember their motto, RESIST! Ours is PRODUCE! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2018 Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November. Dems are just playing games, have no intention of doing anything to solves this decades old problem. We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2018 The suggestion by the President that immigration efforts are a waste of time came as Republicans were trying to fine tune a second immigration bill in the House, with hopes of approving that next week, before lawmakers go home for a July Fourth break. Many GOP lawmakers had been hoping that the President instead would come out very publicly in favor of those efforts, and help convince some reluctant House Republicans to get on board, and vote for the plan, despite misgivings about certain provisions.
