That would be pretty hard to do with the amount of BP on it.

Also, the eighth wonder of the world is still standing and it is a wall.

Mister Reagan effectively knocked it down. I understand your "whereas..."

The wall you seem to object to was the so-called Gorbachev wall (incorrectly attributed to him) in Berlin. That wall was supposed to keep people in whereas the wall set to be constructed would keep people out; a very different task. The same task that moats, turrets and standing walls continue to do while standing tall and attracting visitors from around the world.

They certainly do in California.

We dont need a f'ing wall to be built. Christ. It's pretty retarded to think that a wall is going to stop people from coming here.

Start giving fines and prosecuting companies/business owners that hire illegals and watch the practice stop cold. Or you can build a wall that will do nothing to stop immigration.

Trump simply threatening and signing some EO to stop people from coming here without checks on their background/vetting process slowed immigration into the country. Imagine actually enforcing immigration laws....

Exactly what options would a POTUS have if Governors fail to enforce federal laws? They are doing the only options they have. I agree, enforce existing laws but Mayors and Governors are doing exactly the opposite.

In 2016, SJW Justin Trudeau (in consultation with Obama) arranged for Mexican nationals to travel visa free to Canada thus making it easy to just walk here...'cause we need bridges not walls ya'll. Who knows who else Canada will let it.

Canada also has plenty of terrorists and failed asylum seekers. The wall with Mexico obviously doesn't address these concerns with the Canadian border. The wall also does not address the biggest problem of all: hundreds of thousands of people who overstay their visas in the U.S.

We also need to use E Verify but we will need lots of ICE enforcement for that. Let's see if we even get a fraction of that. But anything is better than Obama.

Trudeau is a putz. Nothing more than a pretty boy riding his dead fathers coat tails. Going left with all the touchy feels rhetoric for illegal immigration is a disaster in the making in my opinion.
