Well, that ought to build most of it. 12.8 billion, when trump only needed 5. Hopefully they begin construction stat. Make the dems stop ongoing construction in the courts if they're going to go that route. Hopefully the wall is a few feet taller and thicker with this extra dough.

Looks like there might be enough cash left to make it 10 feet higher.

Maybe also for some Rottweilers with laser beams on their heads.

Imagine what you can do with the estimated $100+ billion a year that illegals cost the country.

Right? What is it with the left, did they never pass a basic math class? Illegals cost this country astronomically every year.

Actually over an estimated 250 billion a year if you count in the cost of schooling, medical and welfare programs.

Imagine if we could use some of that for our homeless problem, for our Vets who are suiciding out every day, for our poor and needy.

Imagine if the wall were built and the 3/4 of the women and children getting smuggled up were not raped during the process.

Imagine if human trafficking slowed down.

Imagine if we could lower the 4,000 deaths, 30,000 sexual abuse cases and 100,000 violent crimes caused by illegal aliens in the last 2 years.

Oh wait... that would be all about making our citizens safer.

Which the left could care less about, as long as they can keep the flow of illegals going so they can flip Texas, Arizona and Florida blue so they can control the Electoral College.

Now that's what the leadership of the Democratic Party is doing, they have said as much and now we understand it.

So my question is, as an average Democrat citizen of the United States of America, why would you support that?

Because you are told to?

Because you somehow think your life will be better because of it?

Because Orange Man Bad?

~sigh~

Defence is one thing, nonsensical walls a whole nother matter.

A 2 dimensional solution to a 3 dimensional problem really.

But hey if there is $12.8 billion lying around, and its the wish of the people, why the hell not. LoL

I find it hard to reply rationally to a person who does not understand how walls work.

When they did for the Democratic party in 1986, 1994, 1997, 2002, 2006 and 2009.

Did they just stop working in the last decade?

Perhaps I need to rebuild my home then.

Face it... you're just being a hypocrite.

Which is fine! I mean, we expect that from the left now in reality.

I think you will find it harder to sell on ATS though.

People here, for the most part, still think.

Don't be stupid. We need to dig a trench for the sharks, then we add the lasers to them. All the dogs are for is to bite the sharks in to the trench.


Funny how this whole fiasco went. It's kind of like a real-estate guy was figuring out to build fence. It seems to be going according to a plan.

I hear the Supreme Court handed President Trump a HUGE VICTORY today. Those 400 no longer have to (eventually) be released into the U.S. population?

Whether or not the wall would be effective, is subject for debate.

The fact that the government wastes unimaginable amounts of money through inefficiency, and beurocrocy in not.

It's beyond a doubt to me that illegal immigration costs the taxpayers far more than the cost of the wall.

There are also the issues of drugs, human trafficking, and terrorism to consider.

It doesn't have to be 100% effective to be worth the cost.

Most on the left are not interested in a "solution".

They are interested in stopping Trump at any cost. Even if the cost is the sovereignty, and safety of American citizens.

Sadly 12.8 billion still isn't enough. Not really. Will still barely cover the border.
