Thanks for this link, the comments below alone were worth the read. I'm still laughing especially the Dick Durbin (sp?) ones.

But it seems you have interested parties on here that would like you to educate us that are deficient in “basic mental comprehension” I for one would love to hear what you have to say... unless of course you were just trying to come off as having a superior intellect to compensate for some other short comings in life.

Some of the most secure facilities in the country don't have walls.

Think about that.

Try going to Area 51 or even near it you will be regretting that comment.

It's even more worrisome that the effectiveness of a wall is even debated.

Boots on the ground say it works and they need more.

Wtf are wrong with liberal Democrats.

Be liberal with you sexuality. You get disease

Be liberal with your money, you go broke

Be liberal with your borders, you can get more retarded.

Try conserving, you will be healthier. Wealthier , and more secure

You saved me the job replying to that comment. Well done 👍🏻

Humours me that people self proclaim they more intelligent that the rest. Then make themselves look stupid at the end of it all.

Yeah, no doubt, Acosta really screwed up here... when it comes to being an effective internet troll.

His definitely set himself up to be the brunt of a whole lot of juvenile right wing memes

But, he really hasn't "proved" anything, one way or the other... I could go into detail to explain why, but why would I even bother?

If you don't already possess the intellectual capacity to realize this doesn't prove anything. Then no amount of explaining is going to resolve that deficiency in basic mental comprehension... It'll just be in one ear and out the other.

So basically what your saying is that you're talking out of your butt, but are butt hurt because the walls do work so now you're (once again) pretending to have the moral high ground... that about sum it up? Good, now we are all on the same page. Walls work and you're an idiot.

Thank you Jim! Now President Trump can hand out the 1st Annual Acosta Award for Buffoonery in Journalism.

Plus a FIVE star to Brandon Tatum. I agree with everything he said in the video.

Stupidity abounds in America. Throughout recorded history, not a single wall has proven effective. Why would anyone believe a wall will work today when it never has before? This falls right in line with if you do the same thing repeatedly and get the same result each time, that it is insane to believe this time around will end in a different result. Take the red pill. It's scary, but real. Or go ahead and take the blue pill and enjoy you filet mignon, oblivious to reality.

Shut they hell up Acosta, you oversize childish fruit. He's a useless, worthless, washed up nobody that's been totally discredited due to extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome and likely severe organic brain disease.

Acosta is a metastatic tumor growing on this country. Sponging off our rich history (not his, he's not a REAL American) and selling out this country for ratings. Disgusting.

What did we expect? He's leftist trash, among other things. A political prostitute. A know-nothing.

At least he's a useful idiot for us, for a change. Wish it and the rest of them would get the hell out of this country. For good. Maybe they'll get the hint they aren't wanted here, who knows. They don't belong here. They don't deserve to live in a free country.

Look how many of these #less cowards have already tried to sell us out or give up our GOD GIVEN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS for the cause-of-the-month latest tear jerking leftist exploited pseudo-"crisis"

Fake # virtue signalling # stains.

Yes, I truly despise them. Is it that obvious? Sorry, can't pull punches against the enemies of America. We're way past the point of civility or any sort of reconciliation or negotiation. The only objective now is WIN, WIN, WIN while ensuring they get nothing but possibly a free ticket to some third world Landfill Country.

Go signal your damn super virtuous virtues via virtue signalling elsewhere.

Yet you think "drones" and some mythical unnamed "technology" is going to prevent border crossings?

Enjoy your own obliviousness. Typical self-righteous know-nothing leftist.

Go signal your not-so virtuous virtues via virtue signalling elsewhere. Nobody is buying your BS here.

Way, way down. So far down.

Not a single wall has proven effective? Are you sure about that? People in prison beg to differ.

President Trump Went to a Border Town to Prove They Need a Wall. Residents Say Otherwise

President Trump spent Thursday in McAllen, Texas attempting to make his case for a border wall, but members of the Texas Border Coalition — including McAllen’s mayor — say an investment in a wall is the wrong choice.

Wall don't keep people in prison. Technology, iron bars, armed guards, keep people in prison. Even then, people escape.

Residents aren't CBP/ICE professionals.

The Professionals know what we need to shut the illegals out of the country. We don't need rapists, thieves and murders coming here, nor do we need remnants of failed socialist countries.

The "refugees" need to grow a pair and stand up for their homes instead of tucking tail and fleeing their country. The only money or assistance they deserve from us is military funds to overthrow the garbage worthless socialist governments they're fleeing.

But they aren't coming here. No, they don't get in. We don't need any more "social" or socialists coming here and ruining this country any further. We've already got years of work to undo the last 100 years of "social" nonsense.

Wrong. Way off. You are completely wrong. Couldn't be more wrong, in fact.

Technology doesn't keep anyone behind bars. And your reference is invalid none the less. Prisons are far smaller. The Mexico border is thousands of miles long. Totally different ballgame.

Further, technology only DETECTS. With prison escapes, they can be captured or shot dead for fleeing. Border crossers, however, are generally permitted to cross (unless in a mob) first and then face arrest/eventual deportation years down the road if they don't disappear. Unacceptable.

We don't want them here. We want to stop them AT THE BORDER. And you can't do that with technology. Drones do nothing to stop illegal alien foreign nationals from crossing the border.

Keep grasping though. Sounds about usual for you. Light on points/factual data, heavy on opinion/unsourced assertions.

What experience do you have with immigration or border control? Lets hear your credentials..... since you talk like you actually know something here, impress us. Prove me wrong. Waiting on your creds.... Otherwise, just another uninformed leftist. Meanwhile, I trust Sec. Neilsen over your bogus left wing invented outrage misleading or provably false talking points. The men and women of CBP/ICE/DHS know whats best for defending the border from this ongoing National Security Emergency/foreign invasion.

CBP officers also showed Trump blown-up photos of tunnels that were dug to get guns and drugs across the border. Neither border patrol agents nor President Trump explained how a border wall would help stop the flow of drugs through tunnels and legal ports of entry.

McAllen Mayor Jim Darling, who is not affiliated with a political party, tells TIME that even if it was not Trump’s intention, the roundtable appeared to make the case for increased funding at legal ports of entry instead of the wall.

Israel knows how to handle tunnels. It is called hellfire missile. Collapse the tunnels on whoever is inside trying to invade us (stopping them) while simultaneously preventing future invasions.

See, your drones finally have some use after all. THIS is where technology comes into play.

The rapists, murders, thieves, terrorists and drug dealers coming through tunnels deserve nothing more from us.
