"Liberals want to murder their accident babies."

Let me throw a couple of silly answers into the mix.
Why don't the government legalise ALL drugs, take it out of the hands of the criminals. There are users, no denying that. They are not just going to stop. So why doesn't the government legalise and control 1. the purity(ie the safety aspect) 2. make money on taxing. But more importantly taking the power away from the drug criminals. Has the government learned nothing from prohibition.
Never mind about the drugs, who is making and supplying all the syringes? Without a syringe you can't inject. Don't say they will just share syringes because sharing equates to thousands of syringes.

I'm going to lose it if I see another one of these threads.
It's really not complicated. In fact it's very simple math.
Democrats need more voters than ever before.
Liberals want to murder their accident babies.
And our South-of-the-border friends flock in and multiply quite fruitfully.
Strict, diligent, and enforced border control means the death of the Democratic party and they know this.
Seriously, it's that simple.
It's an ugly truth, I know. But shying away from the truth because it's uncomfortable does not help anyone. This is how we got to this era of hiding our heads in the dirt because of hurt feewings awww
Walls are immoral and hard to swallow like that.
I think addressing the known issue is better than chasing some boogeyman.
His testimony was corroborated by numerous witnesses. The control that Sinaloa exerts pervades all levels of Mexico, when the government is complicit in the smuggling a wall does nothing.
it does nothing to address the prime reason for the smuggling in the first place: demand.

We know the drugs are coming from Mexican cartels. We know the cartels are not losing sleep over legality. We also know that there are vast areas where people can simply walk (or run) across an unprotected border. Ergo, it makes sense that there are also drugs coming across that unprotected border.
Are these witnesses also in the cartels? If so, wouldn't they be lying as well? If not, how would they know?
This makes zero sense. If the problem is unresolvable by the US, being solely the issue of a sovereign nation, then the only solution is to erect a barrier.
I have asked several times for a video of someone walking through a wall at the same speed they could walk if no wall were there.
Again, for the 257,436,852,764th time... show me a video clip of you (or anyone else) walking through a wall as though it were not there.
