I think the republicans and democrats working together to find solutions would be refreshing.

The wall is a stupid idea perpetrated by a stupid man. Stupid people voted for him.

Now this collective stupdiness is meeting the reality of some reasonable people in government.

This is how it always ends.

What's amazing is how many suckers actually believed that a wall would be built.

False hope sells.

So, tell us all---Why do you think the wall is a "stupid idea"? Why do you want our borders to remain unprotected? You have yet to explain any of this.

Go ahead. Go ahead and defund it. And when you do, you're only ensuring that NONE of you get re-elected. There is no reason for you to try to be winning Democratic approval, when the fact is - YOU WILL NEVER gain their approval. So stop trying.
They know that the far right people will keep voting for them regardless of what they do. This is an empty threat, do you think a far right person will vote for a liberal in rebellion? I think not. They aren't going to do it and there's nothing you can do about it.

Trump never had any plans to actually do any of the things he promised, because his whole campaign was an ego-stroking publicity stunt and he never expected to win. His plan was to lose and then whine for years about the rigged election and the unfair media. The flaw in his plan was that his opponent was Hillary.

He was as shocked as anyone that the gullible voted him in, and now that he's in he has no idea what he's doing and he's badly winging it.

And it shows.

Bigly.

It's a head fake. The article goes on to explain.

The wall will be built and illegal immigration will drop to just about zero.
We talk about not building it because we love to see Democrats drool and jack off.

I know I'm offended by being called stupid.
What is wrong with building a wall? Walls have been built ever since mankind had the notion to block something from entering their "safe spot" .

Keeping things in as well as out is a pretty basic idea.

I wonder if all the folks who despise the idea of building a wall to prevent people from walking into our country to do whatever they want lock their doors to their houses and cars?

How many live in a gated community? It seems that those who scream the loudest about the evils of a wall are the very same who can afford to hire a security detail when going out and have gates with security systems at their homes. WHY? What do they fear?


I lock my doors to keep things out and to keep my stuff from wandering off.

If not an actual wall than we need electronic systems to monitor the border and if someone is sneaking in the border patrol needs to go and collect them.

Nothing wrong with building a wall, people have been doing it for thousands of years. I think it would be cheaper and more effective to cut off employment opportunities to illegals.

I can't believe it...even with the biggest majority they've had in a long time, the GOP still has no backbone.

That was one of Trump's biggest promises that helped him get elected...and they think they're gonna pull this s*** over the American people?

I know they most likely won't see this, but here's a warning to those "Republican" senators and congressmen and women...

Go ahead. Go ahead and defund it. And when you do, you're only ensuring that NONE of you get re-elected. There is no reason for you to try to be winning Democratic approval, when the fact is - YOU WILL NEVER gain their approval. So stop trying.
A VERY important word in your title, "MAY".
