    In a world of Identity Politics which the left love so much and base their strategies on, it would seem to me these would be the two demographics who have the most resentment to not having a border all.

    Are they going to rely on illegal immigrants to vote for them? I can't see how either demographic would think, "yeah everything is cool, keep doing what your doing, we don't need a wall. I'm gonna go out and vote for Democrats to support my plight".

    They will do what they have been; rigging their primaries and representing the Wall Street/donor/"job creator" class.

    That appears to be the case but it is probably more complicated than that.

    It's amazing how self-destructing intellectually lazy people can be when motivated by hate.

    Democrats have lost their damn minds. THE LAST thing Dem's should be doing is having a public fight with Trump on the issue of illegal alien crime and dead Americans. They are going to force Americans to pay attention to this issue and LOSE HUGE. Idiot Dem's should have just quietly given Trump the $5 billion.

    I go with intellectually challenged. This is a profoundly stupid move by the Ds.

    The answer is no because the republicans are not interested in pleasing anyone except old white guys.

    Hatred from me or hatred from those subjecting their most vulnerable citizens to uncontrolled, illegal immigration? It isn't the wealthy living in their gated communities that are being impacted.

    Legal immigrants resent the fact others are jumping the line. The Black community are angry about jobs being taken and about their communities facing "three strikes you're out" while others are released on bail and head back to Mexico after they commit a serious crime.

    MSNBC and CNN aren't reporting from outside the Bubbles, some network even had CNN cancel on them once they found out the story was pro-barrier.

    Polls show that blacks and Hispanics (legal registered voters) oppose a wall.
    Don't make threads about what a group of people think unless you have seen polls about the issue in question.
