    Arrests of people trying to cross illegally into the U.S. from Mexico PLUNGED to the Lowest level since 1971,
    as Fewer people attempted the trek, the Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday......​

    Of course, Trump has set a strong precedent, and he isn't stopping until the issue is solved. There are over 10 million illegals in the country and we need that wall.

    We already have walls and fences. That's why the numbers have fallen to record lows.

    And exactly how is it a national emergency when we are at a 46 year low?

    The fact that we have so many illegals in the country makes it a national emergency.

    Wouldn't the money be better spent on Ubers to drive them out then on a wall which keeps them in?

    ICE will drive them out and put them on the other side of the border.

    When you can't tell the difference between then and than, it's no wonder you couldn't piece it together.

    Above all, certainly having the wall will be a step towards the right direction, no matter how you look at it. It's less than 1% of the budget, way less.

    Because we're still playing tag in the cactus with about 800 a day and MISSING another 400 or so that don't get caught.. THat's in ADDITION to the 1200 a day at ports of entry that get processed for asylum, refugee status or work permits. and are usually detained and sent back..

    More CHILDREN at the border. Many UNESCORTED.. Uncle Sam doesn't RUN orphanages. Need their parents to STOP sending them here. THAT by ITSELF is a fucking crisis..
