    hell no ..

    the renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement is not in effect yet. Trump rebranded the updated NAFTA as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), but it still needs congressional approval.

    And the deal, literally, does not include any language saying Mexico will pay the United States for the wall.

    In addition, U.S.-Mexico trade has been duty free for more than a decade, and the renegotiated trade deal does not add new tariffs on goods coming from Mexico to the United States, said Lori Wallach, director at Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch.

    he still needs Congress just like I've been saying ever since he started his wall bullshit.

    They don’t really oppose border security, they oppose trump and the wall he wants to build. Have you not figured that out by now?

    The article conveniently leaves out that a vast majority of the 700 miles of fencing was already completed by 2013.

    There is clearly a political component here. I'm not a wall advocate, but these folks in DC are not exactly adept at hiding their agendas.

    The democrats have a choice, to build the wall and let their constituents get better jobs and better pay, or stop the wall and let the hordes of migrants thru flooding the job market with cheap labor. They obviously chose to flood the country with cheap labor, who after a few years will also flood the polls with new democrat voters. Calling their scam a "political component" doesn't do it justice. They prefer that the peons in their urban plantations depend on them for welfare and food stamps, than to move up the economic scale.

    The will of the people is to enforce our immigration laws, and secure our border like EVERY other country does. Why do you want potential criminals, and terrorists to come here? Why do you want to put American citizens at risk?
