That is true. Apparently Trump's supporters are not interested in disrupting his opponents' rallies, in contrast to the troublemakers who invade Trump's.

The misbehavior appears to be on the part of the Trump-haters.

So, this is your roundabout way of saying that we should leave our borders wide open? Plus also your way of saying that you favor open borders and an unlimited amount of illegal immigration.

Guess what? No wall is 100% impenetrable. If you ever saw the Berlin Wall, you would have looked at it and figured that no one would have been able to escape into West Berlin. Yet, many somehow managed. That said, walls do cut down dramatically the numbers who manage to sneak into wherever they are trying to get into. The wall on the border with Tijuana has managed to deeply cut down crime and incursions into our country.

No, I'm saying the wall is not going to stop drug trafficking. I wrote it plainly enough when I wrote "A wall is not going to stop drug trafficking."

You have reading comprehension problems? I said what I meant.

Thieves steal cars, break into homes and hack into your account but cars still have locks, homes have walls, doors and windows and accounts have passwords. Why don't you use your logic in your own personal life?

There are other solutions to the problems. You could start by decriminalizing drugs like marijuana and maybe even other drugs. Early studies out of Colorado show no increase in usage of marijuana post-legalization. The benefit is that you get the criminal element out of it. People grow it, a truck brings it across the border legally, you tax it and use the money for drug treatment, schools, or whatever.

It would be a much more effective way of dealing with the drug problem than a wall, which won't do much, as others have pointed out. You'll still have the cartels and their small armies, and kids with semi-automatic weapons on streetcorners in Detroit. As soon as prohibition ended, no more Al Capones and St. Valentine's Day massacres over bootleg hooch. That's the direction we need to be going in with drugs. Accept that it's here to stay, get the criminal element out, tax it, regulate it, and treat addiction. I don't think we'll end up with worse results than a failed state to our south ruled by drug cartels, the highest rate of incarceration of any developed nation, and incredibly high levels of drug-fueled violence in our inner cities.

It's despicable.

Perhaps Trump could take a look at real presidential candidates and how protestors are escorted out minus racial slurs and the crowd taking their turn pushing and shoving.
What exactly are we supposed to be "afraid touch with a 10 foot pole??? I see a belligerent, disruptive person that they are trying to escort out peacefully. She resists repeatedly and turns to confront and threaten the elderly gentleman escorting her. Hillary supporter, I suspect.

How do drugs get into the United States?

" Mexican DTOs dominate the transportation of illicit drugs across the Southwest Border. They typically use commercial trucks and private and rental vehicles to smuggle cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin through the 25 land POEs as well as through vast areas of desert and mountainous terrain between POEs. Asian traffickers, OMGs, and Indo-Canadian drug traffickers transport significant quantities of high-potency marijuana and MDMA into the United States across the U.S.-Canada border. They use commercial trucks and private and rental vehicles to transport these drugs through more than 100 land POEs. They also use all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), aircraft, maritime vessels, and couriers on foot to smuggle drugs through vast areas between POEs."

A wall is not going to stop drug trafficking. It will have no affect on drugs being carried by commercial trucks, maritime vessels (boats), aircraft. It will do nothing to stop drugs coming in from Canada.
