Yes, he wants his wall. So what? According to the election results, so do a lot of other people. Congress had plenty of time to codify DACA before the election; why didn't they?
Include me as one of those other people who want a wall. Every discussion like this just makes me want it more.
In rough order of your questions:
He's willing to trade the lives of people for a really ridiculous idea? So what? To me that speaks volumes about the man.
If you assume that every person who voted for Trump also supports the wall, you might say that. Sadly, most Americans did not vote for Trump, ergo by your logic, most Americans do not want the wall.
Sure, I'll remember that you're in favor of a ridiculous idea that will cost billions and make little difference.
And you people got angry about it then.
Wow you really injected yourself into this not knowing anything.
The Trump admin was invoking Christian teachings to justify their actions. Thus Christian groups called them out on the BS.
His AG has vary narrowly defined who can qualify to even request asylum. Requesting asylum is not illegal.
The Trump administration is following a strict interpretation of the law and treating these illegal immigrants as law breakers.
