@Jim, These deaths do not matter to a party that will only see them as a large number where some deaths do not matter, they are just looking for the survivors to vote. They have no real platform, so they pretend they care about the safety of this group Then, there are some who have this garbage script playing in their head and it is too late to try to change it for something else more reasonable. It has been fed to them too long. Watch for some who use the same script over and over. Play on names over and over. It reminds me of a puppet show. The rest, sad as it is may be a group who for whatever reason just want the pat on the back for a post.

The Vainglorious Wall of Trump is a waste of time, will do nothing to improve border security and diverts countless billions from EFFECTIVE means of border control.

 

That said, the Trumpcult was told he'd give them a wall Mexico, will pay for it, and then they'll get the pay raises they think Mexicans and Affirmative Action have kept them from getting for the last 20 years.

 

lil donny needs to keep them thinking that so they'll grab their guns and rush into the streets to rescue him when the FBI slaps on the cuffs and drags him out of his Offal Office to stand trial for Treason.

I have heard no one say anything like, " presto, illegal immigration is solved" - have you?

 

It is a major issue that requires a lot more serious attention than it is getting. Once the wall issue is settled, I hope they sit down and do some serious talking on the basics like our concept of immigration and the laws and rules (and, of course, enforcement actions) needed to make it happen.


Democrats are well aware of the need for better border controls.  I think the wall issue is pretty much settled unless Trump is planning an emergency declaration or another shutdown.  I would welcome either from him. 

 

The Democrats put quite a bit of money into border security in the last proposal. The one that had bi partisan support and then Trump backed out? You know.  They just aren't into 16th century technology in places we don't need it.

There are many elements in border security - high tech, low tech, legal just to name three. It is the package that does the job.

 

As to medieval - his spiked thing is no older than the fencing previously approved by the Dems. And I believe both too have a place in the total package.

You are right...  Libtards do seem to hate it when he keeps his promises and the country benefits from  his positive agenda...

 

 


I’m still waiting for Trump to do something positive for the United States. What country were you referring to?


Well, the economy is doing very well and many previously unemployed have jobs. Might that be considered positive?

What is the fear-mongering you are, oh my, talking about?

 

I ask because I am a registered Republican and I see the sun shining every day and am not in fear or mongered.
