Unfortunately, this level of crossings is the new normal. The climb started in 2019, abated for a short while, and then climbed back up again. If the Trump-era policies did not stop the 2019 surge, what policies will?

No, no, no-- stop using data and rational thinking. It works like this: If there is a problem, and the current POTUS isn't a member of the party you identify with (because it's about identity now, not actual politics), then it's the POTUS' fault. Don't you understand how accountability works in 2023? Foreign wars, grocery prices, border issues, the cost of Girl Scout cookies (evidently), public health issues, aliens, etc. ad nauseum-- if you have an opinion on it, and it's not going the way you think it should, it's the fault of <politicalpartyorpersonyouoppose>.
S&E, the general lack of response to your inane barrage of conservative media reposts isn't because you're sooooo right nobody knows how to respond-- it's because it's all so mind-numbingly vapid and ignorant. It became clear a long time ago that nobody can possibly disagree with you in a way you'd be receptive to. You don't have conversations-- you drop a pile of steaming crap, declare it's a puddin' cup, and then stand in it while challenging people to tell you it's not a pile of steaming crap. There is no critical thinking, no good-faith discourse-- it's just a torrent of ill-informed hate speech that a reasonable person doesn't have the time and patience to engage with in any prolonged fashion.
