What an idiot. Univision anchor, Enrique Acevedo, says $25 billion dollars seems like an excessive amount of money to spend on a border wall. Instead
of spending all that money, he thinks the United States should have their border patrol agents "duck" when illegals hurl rocks at them. Wouldn't that
be financially more sound, he wonders? This is the typical BS that idiots on the Left believe. Border agents are bad, but illegal, unvetted
immigrants are good. Trump wanting to secure our border, is bad, but illegals flowing into our country, costing us billions of dollars
each year, are good.
Outside of his inhuman lack of concern for America’s border patrol agents, Acevedo’s talking point about spending $25 billion is just as
disingenuous. According to a 2017 study released by Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), illegal immigration costs the American
taxpayer $116 billion per year. That is a net loss that even takes into account the taxes some illegals pay.
Building a border wall is like building a bank safe. The initial investment more than covers the staggering losses if you don’t build a
deterrent. A steel safe won’t put an end to all bank robberies, just as a border wall won’t put an end to all illegal immigration, but that it
will pay for itself rather quickly is beyond dispute.
In January of this year, the following clip was released. Joshua Wilson, a border patrol agent and vice president of the local border patrol union,
was interviewed and explains why border agents are attacked. In the same clip, Enrique Marones, founder of Border Angels, made a stupid statement. He
states that he doesn't support any attacks at the border, but then states:
"The people that have been throwing rocks...have been reacting to the violence of tear gassing and shooting rubber bullets at migrants."
What he fails to understand, as do many Liberals, is that these "people" are breaking the law by entering our country illegally. Marones isn't happy
that "migrants" (lawbreakers) are being gassed, or shot with rubber bullets. Me too...more reason to spend the money and get that wall built! It will
help reduce these violent skirmishes.

My question is why even have border patrol? At this point, what does it even matter? They will come and can stay with their asylum seeking status.
Whats the point of the processing since they dont show up for the hearings.
How many billions of $ could be saved if we eliminated CPB and ICE?
I think if they're going to throw rocks, we throw lead. The more they push our boundaries and limits, the less I care. We've become a
laughingstock to these people. They come here to abuse and take advantage of our system because we as a country allow it and are easy to exploit.
This needs to change.
To the bleeding hearts here, newsflash, they don't GAF about you or this country. So stop pretending like they do.
I watched a show on HBO last week with Nancy Pelosi's daughter. I believe it was called "Outside the Bubble". In this show she actually went to the
border wall in San Diego (I think) and showed where the border runs as a fence into the ocean.
They were interviewing a border patrol agent and he showed her the difference between an area having a wall and an area that doesn't. They also
talked about some stats.
What I don't understand is how can anyone even argue a walls effectiveness after seeing this and listening to the people who are manning the border?
