    A- Cost prohibitive
    B- Won't work
    C- It's racist
    D- It would reduce those successfully crossing the border
    E- None of the Above

    The machine benefits by not having a wall. Business (Republicans) get their cheap labor and (Democrats) get the votes

    You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours

    There is no excuse for the Republicans not funding the wall.

    The New Colossus

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
    Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
    The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
    "Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
    With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    Emma Lazarus (November 2, 1883)
    A bronze plaque with the words of the poem "The New Colossus" raised on it. The 1903 bronze plaque located in the Statue of Liberty's museum.

    It’s a waste of money . If the goal is to address illegal immigration, then that money is better spent in other ways .

    More ins agents , more immigrantion courts , more judges . More enforcement vs companies who hire illegals . That’s a better use if the money .

    A&B mostly. Most illegal immigration does not come over the border by foot. And if we’re 21T in debt, a quarter T on building a wall is not a good investment.

    So as an immigration barrier, it’s a bad idea; also in the stark light of the reality that illegal immigration has been largely beneficial to the economy despite the horror stories and cherry picked anecdotes.

    That being said, it seems to me that a fantastic idea would be to create an alternative to the Panama canal from San Diego to Brownsville TX or so that allows goods to bypass the trip through Central America and can possibly bring irrigation to the desert Southwest. Not right along the border but something like that would serve multiple purposes;

    Jobs during the construction
    Immigration barrier to those that do cross illegally
    Irrigation
    Commerce
    National Security.


    All a pipe dream.
    It would be a multi decade project of course and We don’t do big things any longer.

    So I take it you feel this is still valid. Just like our Constitution

    What is so silly is the reich totally ignores the largest immigration problem is expired visa's. There are more of them than people crossing without permission or documentation.

    Moron leftists say a wall wont stop them all. There is truth in that BUT just ask them this...

    If you had to play Russian Roulette would you rather have 1 bullet in the revolver or 5?
