That cannot be denied

Its cost effectiveness certainly can be questioned.


And?

Since when has ‘cost effectiveness’ mattered to the government?

Never

It will help to combat ILLEGAL immigration, and since Obama and Hillary campaigned on combating ILLEGAL immigration, the left should support it.

They ALL definitely supported combating it during those campaigns.

Oh that’s right. CNN told them to support it. This time they’re being told that it’s somehow ‘racist’.

Build the wall. Cost effectiveness be damned.

So no bill made it out of congress?
Hmm
Perhaps they should do their job and open the government.

Huh. Used to be the budget deficit used to be of importance to Republicans. Then Trump came along, I guess.

Not really. It's just stupid.

That's the spirit, who cares how effective it is or what it costs! Just build it. And emblazon it with golden letters saying T R U M P !

So you just said that combating ILLEGAL immigration is ‘just stupid’
And then claim the moral high ground?

Ok

No. I said Trump's wall is stupid. And done so quite frequently.

I have, quite frequently, said that immigration laws need fixing.

If it saves one life, is it ‘cost effective’?

I still fail to see how Democrats can reopen the government. Contrary to their claims every 2 years we replace our government. When you hear the term "new Congress" it actually refers to the entire Congress and not just the House.

Any legislation that has not passed either house or has not been singed into law by the first day of the new Congress by potus is null and void.

Legislation would have to be resubmitted to both chambers and passed by both. I have seen Democrats trying to claim they can just use an old Senate bill version that passed by some 90+ senators and just take that up on day 1 when they come into power.

This is not how it works.

I would have thought Democrat members of Congress would know how a bill becomes a law 101. Then again Democrats think the 3 branches of government are the House, the Senate and the President.

We need to require people running for public office pass a constitution test in order to run.

A wall was not stupid when Democrats wanted one.

Statistics are not needed. Elementary common-sense works just fine:

"One person who doesn't get into America and kills a U.S. citizen, is a good thing for Americans".

If that statement is not truth to you, I'm done.


i wonder if a legal immigrant has ever killed anyone?

1 is definitely too many

immigration needs to be locked down.

A wall will not reduce murder, rape, or drug use in this country.


it might or might not be cost effective
but a wall will definitely reduce the aforementioned bad stuff.

So the Dems in the house voting to re-open the government means they dont know how bills or the government work?

What are you on about?

I’m still waiting for someone to explain the problem with a border wall? What are the disadvantages? These idiot politicians need to be kicked out and 90% hung for treason.

If that statement is not truth to you, I'm done.

It is an absurd oversimplification for those who dwell on such. It means that all immigration should be ceased. That no one should cross our borders.

Is that your position?


All immigrants are killers? Or is it statistically likelier that a a murderer or someone willing to murder will attempt to cross illegally.

Fixing immigration will stop illegal border crossings? How so?

And those 380,000 "non essential" employees that are staying home should be layed off permanently. Would a business continue to employ non essential employees? I think not.

Pelosi sounds like she's already crowned herself as Speaker of da House, and is going to Re-Open government.


California Rep. Nancy Pelosi said that when Democrats retake control of the House of Representatives on Thursday, they will "take action" to end the partial government shutdown.

In a letter to Democrats on Tuesday, the presumptive incoming speaker of the House wrote that Democrats plan to "pass strong, bipartisan legislation to reopen government, which has already received strong bipartisan support in the Senate."
