    I already did. You either don’t understand, don’t want to accept it or you just don’t agree. Either way it appears that we are at a stalemate. Can’t say I didn’t try

    The sack of shit in the WH doesn't lie all the time. Sometimes he waddles.

    there are 23 million Hispanics in America, and they all vote in swing states! Trump will regret this, my friends, in 2020

    You know, that is a very good question. And, because we already know that the cartels are capable of building tunnels (and they can do it quick), we know that will be one of the ways they will use to circumvent the wall. Current radar technology can only go about 15 meters down, but they have found tunnels under the border as deep as 25 to 30 meters.

    And.................the bad thing is, tunnels are currently very hard to locate and detect. Ground penetrating radar isn't quite good enough to reliably find all the tunnels. Building the wall would give a lot of people a false sense of security, especially if they saw few to zero people crossing the wall, but there was still a flood of them coming in under the wall.

    Trump says the wall will work. I say there needs to be a hell of a lot more than just a wall, and to be honest, I think that an electronic "fence" with motion sensors and cameras would be more effective (and less expensive) than a solid wall. And, for the troops that get out of the military that know how to pilot drones? Give 'em a job with Border Security flying drone patrols.

    Obama’s border security chief just came out in favor of the wall and said he supports Trump. I had Democrats coming up to me at work and were disappointed in Pelosi and Crying Chuck. Get another news source besides CNN that never ran the video of the current Border Patrol Director (Mexican American) who agreed with President Trump and said that about 18% of who they snag coming across are Arabs, Africans, Asians, and Middle Easterners. Terrorists? Better safe than sorry.
