Tunnels, throwers, catapults, climbers, submarines, boats, surfboards, and I am sure far more makes me think the idea of a secure border is simply impossible. I do think that making the main roads crossing the border inaccessible to smugglers with scanning technology will impact the cartels far more than a fence.



Who knows, maybe there will be enough money saved with all the reduction in illegal immigration that they can do both.
God knows any improvement is better than nothing at all. (like the past has shown)

Jesus... He's taking on the CIA AND the Cartels? The ISIS of the South who've been beheading and burning innocent families for decades? Well, i guess he has to take on CIA allies in order to end their limitless funding... Congress could cut their funding and they would be doing just fine with all their "side hustles" going on.

No you're right. This is just preperation for war. I imagine drone strikes will be on the table before TOO long...

Yeah you are correct. This is only preperations for war. Drone strikes, seal teams, etc, will eventually be on the table.

I would love to see a hellfire up their ASSES...

Trump also stopped arming the ISIS. think from the last administration, he rescinded the offer after he witnessed a 4 year old beheading. I have to find that news article again. Saw two news things about it, but can't get it to load now.

Actually, it was the Syrian rebels we've stopped arming. (Supposedly, we've never armed ISIS.) Trump saw that video, then asked his intelligence guys "WTF?! Why are we supporting guys who do this kind of stuff?" The intelligence guys didn't have a good explanation, so Trump pulled the plug.

About damn time we had someone in Washington with a bit of common sense.

Really? Where are all of these chemical weapons and dirty bomb recoveries or detonations?

I like that they are going to check 100% of all trucks.

They check the trucks and find drugs and size the trucks and sell them and everything in them.
Then the money goes to paying for the searches and equipment to find more drug cartel shipments and makes the government more money that can be used to build the wall..

If trucks owned or used by US companies with factories in Mexico lose there products to bad that is the cost of operating in mexico.

Hmm...

Its interesting you should say that, because all the information that was floating around at the time of his election, showed that Trumps border wall would be the least effective measure, because it deals with the smallest percentage of illegal immigration.

The smallest, tiniest part of the illegal immigrant population, are the ones who actually cross the border on foot, over the fences, under the fences, around the fences or otherwise. The LARGEST part, is those who arrive via aircraft as tourists or on business or education visas, and then overstay. And its also worth pointing out that Trump was making a big deal out of the border, at a time when immigration from Mexico, legal or otherwise, was at a seventeen year low, where the flow of illegal immigration from Mexico was in fact winding down to a relative trickle, as opposed to a gushing torrent.

So the actual amount of difference that is going to be made by this wall, is actually going to be very minimal, to the point where I very much doubt that anyone will notice worth a damn.

Thanks to those people for doing their jobs!

Make our border safe again!




Stoping your government funding and arming the drug barons over the border would go a good way to keep the US safe..
