Good news! The Southwestern Border Sheriff’s Coalition has done your job for you. All you need to do is draft and pass legislation to fund the border security initiatives outlined in their attached communication.
President Trump, you will get some additional sections of the border secured with new walls/fences. They will be perfect for photo opportunities.
Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader Schumer, you will get sections of the border where there will not be a wall, but will instead be secured using new technology and increased manpower. These locations will also be perfect for photo opportunities.
Best of all, the American people will actually see the issue of border security addressed in an intelligent manner. And, we're not interested in a photo opportunity.
No new ideas, and actually very few ideas outlined at all. Nobody has ever advocated for 2000 miles of wall. Where a wall is needed a wall will be constructed and improved upon. There is presently about 600 miles of barrier, and most of it needs to be improved. Maybe a couple hundred miles of wall where none exists now on top of it. New technologies and man power always has been a part of the equation, nothing new there either. Border agents will tell you, in certain locations a wall is desperately needed. Roughly 400,000 ILLEGALS were stoped last year at the border, how many succeeded? Yes, we need a wall among other things. But we also need to take issue with the countries to the south of us, in monetary terms. Above all, we need to make it so illegals do NOT want to come here. Just takes a stroke of a pen, but the stinking liberals and other assorted America hating socialists want nothing of it or any other common sense measure.
Granted some areas that may be the best CURRENT option until a better one found or built. But I have to wonder how many areas Israel has along it's Palestinian border that just use sensors and drones.....
"-Americans don't like illegal immigration -"Illegal immigration is wrong" -People illegally in the U.S. are "illegal aliens," not "undocumented" -Border fence made the southern border "far more secure...created a significant barrier to illegal immigration""
If the terrain is nearly impossible to cross by anyone, then a wall would not be needed. Sensors and drones would suffice. But if migrants find that route and it begins to strain our manpower to chase and process them, then a wall becomes necessary.
BTW - a wall is a whole lot less urgent if we would just evict these illegal immigrants as fast as they come in. But because of the 'asylum' scam being taught by democrat lawyers to exploit our laws, then we get stuck trying to process, house, and trial by court hundreds of thousands.
The WALL is necessary to counter the Democrat exploitation of our laws. Rock - Paper - Scissors
We are building half a ship.

Trump has already offered much to the Dems, Trump isnt only asking for the wall, he also was willing to do much more of what the Dems wanted, however the "wall" is what the dems dont want to give into because it would be seen as a win for Trump, and the Dems cant allow that because of their quest for power .... so, to hell with the lousy dems/libs/socialists (one in the same), Trump is about to do what is needed... America will thank you Mr. President ...
Imagine if Obama has declared an emergency in order to get Obamacare passed?
This is a major precedent and a power you do not wield lightly.
IE: He promised to have "open dialogue" over healthcare and the only televised discussion I found was when he said to John McCain, basically, shut up ... it's a done deal. But he made promises that we all knew were Bogus.
It's past the time when one team (your side) is likely to behave just because the other did so. That time is lost. Smoked away. I say get as much done for the Good as you can and get it locked down tight. It will be an old issue by the time 6 years roles past and When Mike Pence takes over, then you will have a nice man that speaks softly and smoothly to soothe our worries. 8 years after that , we can talk again...
Schumer's only excuse is he knew he was lying when he said that in 2009..... it's what they do....
Oh let me guess, we should put a wall around the entirety of the US?
When they didn't get the response they were after in the Media, the narrative quickly shifted. Now, it's "no crisis, manufactured crisis, everything is groovy down there". It's only a crisis if it suits the Liberal agenda.
But as all of your statements and arguments..... that one is a known lie as well.
Them desert people like the warm end... the South end of a Northbound country.
We need to shut that door and lock it. Guard it, and always be willing to protect it. Too bad we have to watch our land like that. But that's the thing one does when it is being trespassed upon.
There is no hypocrisy, we voted Him in, to do what he is doing. The word your thinking of is democracy ... And the power is returned in large part to we the people by his cutting the entangled mess that was penned in last time around. He had 8 years ... to bad he didn't make it better, too bad his fundamental change was recognized for what it really is.
He (Your King) is no Hypocrite either. He said it and did it. Now we will fix it and redo it.
If he declares a national emergency Trump WILL set a precedent that'll come back to bite the GOP in the booty.
Imagine President Kamala Harris declaring a gun emergency after another massive shooting.
Be careful what you ask for boys.
1) Canada accepts visitors from the old French colonies...Syria, Algieria, Lebanon, + others...Not saying that all are terrorists...only that more opportunities to enter without full vetting exist.
2) FBI data from 2014-2016 suggests more 'suspected terrorists' enter U.S. by way of Canada than Mexico
3) According to Trumps Homeland Security : 33% more people on the terrorist watch list enter the US from Canada than Mexico.
4) 6 terrorist tried to enter from the southern border. 41 from Canada .3700 + tried to enter through airports. So now the people who are meant to keep those 3700+ people out aren't getting paid. But trump wants to hold 800k Americans hostage for a vanity project to keep those 6 out. Makes lots of sense in CF world.
Other additional concerns are Economic, Drugs, Criminal element, And the fact that it is our land, not anyone else's. It's not that difficult. All of the above.
every seven days, 300 Americans die from a heroin overdose. 90 percent of that highly toxic and addictive chemical comes south of the border. Given all these facts, why not give our border patrol the tools they are asking for, that they need, that they desperately call for -- and that is a strategic wall on our southern border.
all those against border security/wall/ barrier they once voted for it, Clinton, Boxer, Fienstein, Pelosi, Schumer, Binden and Obama among other dems ... the only thing that has changed is that Trump is now in office.... the Dems now care more about party politics and only their party and stopping Trump at all costs, even of it means more lives of American citizens are taken by Illegals ... the Dems just dont care .... (all the above came from Govt websites or Foxnews)
The wall is gonna happen. That is getting clearer by the day.... Trump made a great FACTUAL argument for it..... while your hero's fiddled away in blather land. That you insist on spreading lies and propaganda about how much support is has is telling. You're justifying telling your lies to yourself..... that eats at the soul..... Again, get some help.
