The president promised that Mexico would pay for the wall why should we have to? I don't want the damn thing, a needless expense that wouldn't stop most illegal immigrant in a time where border arrests have been dropping at a consistent rate since I was in elementary school. If he wants the wall he should talk to Mexico like he initially said he would not put 800,000 people out of work
The wall would basickly end the problem of people illegally entering from the southern border. Hundreds of thousands of people enter the US this way every year so it would be wise for us to fund the wall to stop that. Trump knows that the only way he can do it now is with having the government shutdown over it.
So where are we going to build it? Whose land are we going to steal out from them? Whose land are we going to ruin by putting a huge wall on it? What about all the people that rely Rio Grande? What about all the people will will have their land and houses BEHIND a giant wall?
What about the huge damage done to the environment and the animals that live there?
How will the wall stop people from digging under it? Climbing over it? Putting a hole in it?
Why did they never try this in the TWO years they had in charge of the senate, the house, AND presidency - but now it is "important" enough to punish people over?
Where are we getting the money to build this? Maintain it? Fix it? Specially since what he wants to build is HEAVILY under tariff now because of his own trade wars.
Have you put any thought into this? Are you just repeating what others have said? Are you just a living meme in for the laughs without thought?
