    we can afford the iraq war, the afghan war, a 9 trillion dollar debt.

    But we cant afford to build the border fence san diego to brownsville, and deport all the illegals and the anchor bums.

    I smell bullshit

    Maybe I am missing something, but I thought that there was funding for this wall? Don't get me wrong, I am for the wall, and I know construction has been started,..but it is taking forever to get built. I am a Republican, but I will blame Republicans for this failure. If they can ever get this wall complete before the 08 Elections,...a Republican will surely be in the White House again!

    Partly true, but I must say I find it rather strange that you place no blame on the Republicans who, if my memory serves me correct, controlled the House for the 16 years previous to this one, and the Senate the previous 6. Perhaps they might possibly deserve a wee bit of your gumption as well?

    I don't get it. Sorry, I honestly don't. What is this fetish you conservatives have with deporting these illegals. I for one have no problem letting them voluntarily wash my dishes for me. Christ knows we need immigration into this country, and the NSF clearly demonstrated that even illegals are a net benefit to the country. Why waste billions deporting them?

    There is funding. It was passed in the House and President Bush signed it but he is only planning on building around 360 miles instead of the over 850 miles. He is giving into McCain and Kennedy.

    Both parties are to blame. Both are terrified of alienating the Hispanic vote. A rare bit of bipartisan effort backburnering the issue as swiftly as possible.

    Not even close. Why don't you ask the corporations who rely on them for things like picking our produce what they think on the subject.

    And THAT'S the reason no one's going to build your wall.... cheap labor helps, not hurts, corporate interests. It is also what people rely on for taking care of their kids, doing their gardens, doing construction and cleaning their pools.

    Or do you think American citizens are going to do that work?
