Only when illegals start killing journalists and members of liberals and democrat politicians families will they ever call for a wall to be built.


I would just call it a DAM and have the Corp of Engineers build it. 

It really would be, dams are built for flood control and it would control the FLOOD of illegal aliens trying to come here.

I read on occasion the net illegal immigration is zero or negative.  I don't know if this is true or not, nor how anyone could measure it reliably.  Has anyone else seen such reports?

We already have a barrier/wall on a good portion of the border, authorized in part by a 2006 act congress passed with the votes of Obama and Shumer.  I can see how it may need strengthening and perhaps lengthening in certain places.

Call it a barrier and move on, this has gotten so partisan it's rather amazing.

When you don't have enough money to pay for veterans or meals on wheels, but we have an extra $25 billion to throw at an archaic wall that does not work on a grand scale. You really have to question people's judgment and intelligence levels. Especially when so many are here illegally because of expired Visas. 

You can't help but laugh at the "build a wall" loons.

The cost of a wall is down in the noise of what the Government spends. The cost argument is just partisan politics. However, eliminating the reason they are coming is a better solution.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/census-confirms-63-percent-of-non-citizens-on-welfare-4-6-million-households

A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, a Census Bureau finding that bolsters President Trump’s concern about immigrants costing the nation.

In a new analysis of the latest numbers, from 2014, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it.

Twerp, I like the graphic you posted.  I guess that it takes a person of your intelligence and judgment to discern that it's a simple matter for illegals to just do an end-around a border wall and swim to Louisiana or around the Florida peninsula in order to get into the country.  

The #1 reason why we have a government shutdown is because Dems don't want to give Trump a win and see him fulfill another campaign promise.  It's petty partisan Democrat politics at their worst.   We know Democrats don't care about veterans or the money.  $5 billion - or $25 billion - is just a drop in the bucket compared to what our government wastes.  At the end of the day it's a rounding error in our federal budget.   

LOL, but we're supposed to believe Democrats woke up one morning and decided to be frugal.

AShitVol 

You'll have plenty of time worrying about the deficit, now that the democrats are taking over the house.  You haven't cared since 2016, but I have a feeling that will change.

 “There’s a fence that goes along the front of the house, but it’s the same as the other neighbors have. It’s tastefully done.”



There you have it.  Dems are opposed to Trump's Wall, "because it isn't tasteful."

C'mon President Trump, redesign that wall and make it "tasteful"!

Unless you're planning on putting a wall around the entire country and a dome on top, this argument is still ridiculous. Doesn't compare, and it's still fake news.

Only need a wall of fence in certain parts (cities along the border) along most of the rest electronic walls suffice as well as having electronics along the wall/fence to detect tunneling, etc
Will it stop everyone. No. But they sure do slow people down.
