Which terrorists are those?  The ones waving nazi flags? Bombing abortion clinics? Shooting black churchgoers? You mean those terrorists? 

They were born inside our borders.

Have you ever noticed how the Trumptards on this forum repeat verbatim the right wing theory and rhetoric  without even thinking what they are writing and then have the temerity to be upset when thinking people call them out or even ask logical questions?

About time you all donned your tin hats because no amount of BS is gonna stop the tidal wave of shit that’s gonna hit the Orange one shortly.

Hopefully  you have your alternate story “me never supported the treasonist prick” ready shortly.

Yeah, from 2005. We have spend a shitload of $$ since then not that you know or care. Oh, was money well spent as the studies show. Spending billions more? Studies are done by contractors whose goal is to spend shitloads of money making money. YCMTSU  Seems to be the Republican way.   And just in case this has not been mentioned lately - the Wall was a soundbite to tie in with the racist rants and was something simple enough that Trump could remember well enough to repeat it at every rally.

dogshit. Again, lots of money was appropriated in 2006 and the border security was upgraded.  Now, do you have anything that exists in reality? Because the Republicans didn't want the wall, they had 2 years to do it and didn't. The Cato Institute (RW think tank) knows it is a bad idea.

Nope. They supported limited fencing. The funding for which is still on the table. It's Donald demanding an increase of funds from the Democrats; an increase he couldn't get with two years of Republican majority in both house & senate.

The fact is, that the house has a budget, which they have forwarded to the senate, which Bitch McConnell will not bring up for a vote because he knows Trump will veto it, and when it comes back, the veto will be over ridden..... And Bitch won't stand for that. He doesn't want the will of the people, or their elected representatives to be heard.

 This is really more on McConnell than anyone else.

Yeah the House and Senate are supposed to be independent of the Presidency.  Mitch doesn't just get to say "I'm not going to put it up for a vote if Trump will veto it" and bear no responsibility.  Of course that's exactly how he's trying to play it, as long as he can get away with it.

American voters support 63 - 30 percent a Democratic proposal to reopen parts of the government that do not involve border security while negotiating funding for the Wall, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today. Every party, gender, education, age and racial group supports this idea except Republicans, who are opposed 52 - 39 percent. 

Voters oppose 63 - 32 percent shutting down the government to force funding for the Wall, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University National Poll finds. Again, Republicans are the only listed group supporting the shutdown, 67 - 24 percent.

Trump declares there is 'no substitute' for a wall, shutdown drags on

Yup, it's all the Democrats fault because Trump refuses to budge from a wall he didn't get from his own party. :rolleyes: 

At least the polls are proving the adage about fooling some of the people all of the time but not all of the people all of the time. Outside the rusted on base of Happy Jacks and loyal lap Dogs - Trump's lost the support of the people on this front. Like the Jacks & Dogs, that won't mean he'll back down, only that it's going to get even stupider moving forward.

To be fair Trump is at his policy limit with "wall", he successfully managed "tax" which is challenging like "kat" and "hat" or even "sex" but not impossible. However Putin really really struggled to teach him "wall"  being 4 letters or (technically 3 letters), it was quite an ask but "wall" is like "war" which is the sound he makes when Vlad bothers with a reach around. Donny loves that sound (and the feeling of russan jizz rolling down his butt cheeks). God bless America

They were against it before they were for it.

Why the change of heart?

As recently as January 4, this is the stance of the union representing Border Patrol agents -

Below is the whole section on “border fences and walls,” as preserved on the Internet Archive before it was scrubbed sometime after the union president, Brandon Judd, visited the White House. The union is known as the NBPC, or the National Border Patrol Council. NBPS stands for National Border Patrol Strategy; the union argues that the overarching strategy needs to change. The archived website says:

The NBPC disagrees with wasting taxpayer money on building fences and walls along the border as a means of curtailing illegal entries into the United States. However, as long as we continue to operate under the current NBPS and ignore the problem that is causing illegal immigration, we realize fences and walls are essential.

  • Walls and fences are temporary solutions that focus on the symptom (illegal immigration) rather than the problem (employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens).

  • Walls and fences are only a speed bump. People who want to come to the United States to obtain employment will continue to go over, under, and around the walls and fences that are constructed.

  • Walls and fences will undoubtedly result in an increase in fraudulent documents and smuggling through the Ports of Entry.

  • Walls and fences do not solve the issue of people entering the country legally and staying beyond the date they are required to leave the country, a problem which will undoubtedly increase as more walls and fences are constructed.

  • The NBPC position regarding walls and fences is not due to a concern of losing our jobs if fences and walls are built. On the contrary, the NBPC realizes that walls and fences require just as much manpower to protect them. Border Patrol Agents witness what happens to walls and fences when there are not enough Border Patrol agents to protect them.

A Republican Montana state senator and Republican delegates from West Virginia plan to introduce measures to allocate state funds to help build President Donald Trump's proposed wall along the southern US border.

Republican Montana state Sen. Scott Sales confirmed to CNN on Tuesday that he will propose a bill that would allocate $8 million in state funds to help build Trump's border wall.

It's so much BS.

Now, ATC is facing shutdown. SNAP is about ready to run out of money. Tax return? Good luck. Folks that actually protect our country? They're running out of money too.

All for a stupid wall that will have no effect. A wall...Seriously, we have technology that can be deployed (motion sensors anyone?) and hire some additional border patrol people more cheaply and it would actually be effective.

This is just so stupid. I'm not even convinced there's a problem as it is. I have had property in Tubac, AZ for 26 years. Guess how many issues there have been? Sure, some garbage gets left behind (which is no different than seeing bear scat in the woods) and there are checks on the highway to Tucson which take 2 minutes of my time. Whatever.

You must be magic..They've just ordered 36,000 furloughed tax employees to return to work..unpaid.

This is how riots start.

One of the notable recent elements of this partial government shutdown -- the longest in history -- is that the Trump administration keeps designating more and more of the federal government essential, or excepted from the furlough, ordering many thousands of workers back to the office to process tax returns, perform safety inspections and more -- all without pay.

The practical effect is that more government workers will be doing their jobs without their paychecks, but it will also work to mute the impact of the shutdown in the everyday lives of Americans who aren't directly touched by the shutdown.

The largest and most incredible of the switches from furloughed to essential is that the Internal Revenue Service will officially be recalling tens of thousands of workers -- 36,000 of them -- to process tax filings and refunds. The move runs afoul of previous guidance but will be welcome news to Americans who rely on refunds. Less so for the IRS workers forced to work without pay if the shutdown carries forward. That means well more than half the IRS workforce -- 57% -- will be working despite the shutdown.

We owned some land in central FL and leased it to a rancher. Fences were his problem. I guess if they failed it would quickly be a problem for the melon farmer who leased the other piece. Do cows like melons?

Great news.  We don’t need a wall along the Mexican boarder.   Since illegal immigrants are a national emergency (per Trump) we need to address the biggest leak immediately.   We need impenetrable walls around  all 102 international airports in the United States.      Not only will we save on concrete, but the ground is usually flat around airports.  There are roads and truck stops, speeding construction,    We can even postpone those currently only having international cargo flights.   Wall off Detroit, Atlanta, New York, Chicago, Denver, Miami, San Francisco, and Los Angeles airports tomorrow.    Nobody gets in or out.   Reopen government the next day.  https://www.npr.org/2019/01/16/686056668/for-seventh-consecutive-year-visa-overstays-exceeded-illegal-border-crossings

Pretty tough to overstay a visa you never had to have in the first place.

Warning: Do you open this link if you love Trump and his wall.  Don't bitch to me if you do and then get your panties in a twist.

In case he decides to wallow in his ignorance by avoiding the link you provided -

Most of those Canuckiststanis are 70+ and have homes in Florida and Arizona. They are a bad bunch spending their pension cheques in the US and driving and golfing badly. My father was one in Lakeland for years. Doubt his Shriner buddies knew he was an illegal, passed for an American pretty well. Interestingly he got health care at the local VA hospital as a result of some sort of reciprocity with Veterans Affairs in Canada

I don't think we should build a wall. A hedge would be much more polite and beautiful if we kept it trimmed. After all Trump values beautiful barriers.

I'm sure Trump knows better than mere engineers. He has a big brain.

He does indeed have a large brain!  Unfortunately, it is only full of hot air and bullshit, and lie, thousands of bald faced lies, in the 2 years he has soiled the Oval office.....

I like the idea of small drones picking people up and dropping them off..... I'm thinking a trip to the grocery store, not a quick ride across the border, but...... It has real commercial potential.

Walls are already proven not to work in field tests.  But bullshit sells where people are immune to the odor.  Flyover country.  

This is hilarious:

Trump says San Antonio shows border walls works, despite city being 150 miles from border and having no wall

 The Independent Sun, Jan 20 7:56 AM PST 

Donald Trump has cited San Antonio as proof that border walls make the US safer, despite the Texas city not having a border wall and being 150 miles from Mexico.

“Everyone knows that walls work,” claimed the president as he addressed reporters outside the White House. “You look at different places, they put up a wall, no problem.

“You look at San Antonio, you look at so many different places; they go from one of the most unsafe cities in the country to one of the safest cities, immediately, immediately. It works. We have to put them up, and we will put them up. We've got to."

Mr Trump’s comments on Saturday were intended to justify his demand for $5.7bn to fund a US-Mexico border wall.

The president may have intended to refer to El Paso, a Texas border city he used as an example in a similar anecdote last week.

“El Paso… was one of the most dangerous cities in the country,” Mr Trump claimed during a 14 January speech in New Orleans. “A wall was put up. It went from being one of the most dangerous cities in the country to one of the safest cities in the country overnight.”

The president’s depiction of El Paso’s transformation is also inaccurate, however.

The city has never been “one of the most dangerous” in the US and already had one of the lowest crime rates among the country’s largest urban areas before construction of a 57-mile border fence began in 2008.

El Paso’s violent crime rate was also lower in each of the three years before the fence was built than in each of the three years after it was finished, according to the Annenberg Public Policy Centre’s fact-checking website.

Mr Trump’s reference to San Antonio’s non-existent wall came before a live televised address in which he offered expanded protections for some undocumented immigrants as a concession to Democrats in return for the $5.6bn.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer rejected the proposed trade-off, which the president had hoped could bring an end to a month-long federal government shutdown.

Ms Pelosi dismissed the offer as “a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives”.

Apropos pointless walls, Shitstain and his elk on the Court are  protecting us from transgenders protecting us.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/22/us/politics/supreme-court-transgender-military.html

President Trump would rather not be faced with the reality of transgender folks willing to serve, when he was sidelined with his crippling bone spurs.

Can't let that happen.

With his never ending fails on building his beautiful wall I suggest Trump try building it this way.
