IL is the biggest producer of soybeans per acre in the US. The majority of it goes to China. There is a 25% tariff on it. It's a massive blow to the state economy. They're also currently in the worst planting season in a very long time, a lot of this guy's land is cover crop this year. His 2nd biggest revenue stream is soy, after commodity corn.

Which really sucks, but Hillary won Illinois in a landslide and I don't believe Illinois has gone to a (R) since H.W. in '88. I guess I was wondering nationwide how big of an impact it was having in terms of affecting the election.

Iowa has got to be feeling it, due to soy. They and IL produce over 1/4 of our country's soy. MN produces a lot, but is already blue. NE, IN, OH, SD, MO, OH, ND and AK also grow a lot of soy but most if not all of those were at least a 5-point Trump win.

Yep, I followed that. The GOP conservative brand is strong, even with the worst human on earth at the Helm.

I'm not entirely sure how a president should pose in such a picture, but I am 1000% positive that a huge grin and a thumbs up is not correct.

I know there's an immigration thread somewhere, but I didn't immediately find it on the first couple pages. This is kind of a catch-all thread, so I figured it could go here.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 54551.html

Quote:
The Trump administration has unveiled new rules that could deny visas and permanent residency to hundreds of thousands of people for being too poor.

In the latest effort by the president to place a tough immigration policy at the centre of his 2020 reelection campaign, the new rules will reject applicants for temporary or permanent visas for failing to meet income standards or for receiving public assistance such as welfare, food stamps, public housing or Medicaid.

Experts have said the plan could be the most drastic of Donald Trump’s efforts to restrict both legal and illegal immigration.

The Migration Policy Institute, a research organisation specialising in immigration issues, said that the change could result in more than half of all family-based green card applicants being denied. About 800,000 green cards were issued in 2016.

The new rule, introduced by Stephen Miller, the Trump administration’s lead on immigration policy, says that immigrants must be “self-sufficient”.
