For the rest of us, here are two important facts.

  • The Border Patrol has a $9 Billion plus budget
  • The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents

What has Fox and "Trump World" and "Trump Cult" to do with the caravan which is not "a long way from our border" despite your words?

 

As to the number of agents - is your vision of border security a line of people - what - 20 feet apart, 30 feet apart?

Right from the "Fake News":

 

TIJUANA, Mexico — After more than a month on the move, a caravan of migrants from Central America has come to a halt just a few yards from the border wall that divides Mexico and the United States.

Well lets talk about fake. We have a fake military deployment to the border by a fake President, and orders from the leaders to the enablers  to push the fake story. The real story is the military were sent to the border by our Dictator President so he could win an election to further his takeover of the USA, but the military told him the deployment was a waste of time and money. The fake President ordered them there any way. The Dictator President lost the election as the people new it was all fake, and the military over ruled the still fake President and is pulling the troops out. Now the real fake news FOX tells the enablers is was an over throw of the Dictator President by the military and the top military leaders should be fired. FOX Lou D cries on TV for the enablers to carry on this fake story so all the far right will not loose faith. Now enough of the fake far right. Lets see if they say to their leaders we will not be your fake messenger any longer by them telling all the thinking people they are sorry for being so gullible and will not longer support the fake far right. Lets see if they start to say they are sorry as they answer this post.

The Obama/Hillary cult need to get a grip. Comparing a wall that would be a tool to minimize illegal immigration, entry of criminals, as well as better controlling drugs coming in to our country to the cost is foolish.  Those are the same people that would condone wasting ten times that on foolish ventures as controlling the climate, paying for the failed Solydra solar company, closing down the coal mines, stopping the pipeline, stopping fracking, and rescinding the Trump tax cuts (to all people paying income taxes) - referring to them as "crumbs".

Trump Lovers need to get a grip. Building a wall would be a massive waster of precious resources. It would have zero impact on almost half of all illegal immigrants. 

 

We have a Border Patrol with over a $9 Billion budget. We have all the protection we need in place on the Mexican border. The Border Patrol can hanlde the caravan if and when they ever arrive at our border.

 

Illegal immigration is much lower than it was 7 or 8 years ago, but don't tell Trump Cult members because they get thoroughly confused by FACTS.

Why do we have a Border Patrol with a $9 Billion budget?

 

Why are the troops leaving the border and going home?

 

Did you know that almost half of all illegal immigrants in America came here LEGALLY and overstayed their VISAs. 


 

That's what makes them illegal!  

 

We are a nation of laws.  The federal government is enforcing the law (for a change).  If you don't like a law does that mean you don't have to follow it?

 

Good grief!  Get a grip on it!

Your expertise in logistical and operational planning is outstanding.  No doubt you should have been one of those planning this deployment.  To paraphrase the expression used at the Battle of Bunker Hill, wait until they are knocking at the gates to prepare for their arrival.

 

Preparations are in place all along the border now that these migrants are starting to arrive so their work there is done, so they are getting ready to go home since their assistance is no longer needed.  Those in the medical field are still there along with security and transportation people.  They will be supporting CBP personnel by relieving them for enforcement duties.

 

So would you have had Trump to wait until a few days of arrival to deploy?  As far as being a peaceful group as some would have them be, recall the violence at the southern Mexican border, and the violence now in Tijuana?  They are even complaining that citizens in Tijuana aren't feeding them and helping them like in southern and central Mexico.

Good points Critical. Walls aren't the answer.
