The major contender for President did NOT say that most Mexicans are rapists and murders. Here's his actual quote:

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best,” he said during the announcement. “They're not sending you, they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they're telling us what we're getting."

He would appear to be right, in any study of crime:

"- Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%.
- During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.
- That 38% represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643."

Trump also did NOT say that he would ban Muslims, nor did any of the state Governors. What Trump actually said was:

“We need a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States while we figure out what the hell is going on.”

This was in response to the multiple jihad-based shootings, including San Bernardino, where both of the shooters waltzed past our so-called "screenings."

The President has this authority, and has had since 1952:

"Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate." (Jimmy Carter exercised this authority when he banned Iranians from entering the US in 1979, and deported thousands of Iranians who were here).

Similarly, the state Governors are rejecting non-vetted immigrants from the middle east to be settled in their states. The larger issue is that states (including local law enforcement) are not being notified at all by the Feds when these immigrants are settled in the states. There was a lot of conflict when Obama proposed allowing 10,000 Syrians to immigrate next year; in reality, the US took over 102,000 since 2012, with no notice to the states, and no vetting process. This is why the Governors are trying to stop it.
I agree with nearly everything you say but this is simply untrue. I am a dyed-in-the-wool law and order guy who will gladly pay more taxes for 3 things:

1. Better pay for the military, better funded VA, and more hardware.(600 ship navy and a military space program - the real deal.)
2. Better Roads. We are car people, no need to explain this one.
3. More jails. Lock 'em up and throw away the key and the death penalty should be universal with all appeals exhausted after 2 years.

The disproportionate murdering of people of color by the police is appalling and without cause. It is the result of poorly trained police and the militarization of the police forces in the US. There is absolutely no reason that a person should receive a summary death administered by a 28 y/o for walking down the street with a can, a knife, a cell phone, or a gun.

Yes. A gun. Unless they are posting a clear and present danger to society the situations need to be de-escalated. Anyone that believes that there isn't a police-race problem in this country is just sticking their head in the sand.

As an aside, the major correlation between justice and injustice in this country is the amount of money one has. Race is secondary. Once one enters the criminal justice system, nothing matters but $. I'm not opposed to putting the crims in jail...I just want them to get there first.

Well...not child molesters and violent rapist. They can be shot in the street. Cheers-mk
