Of course walls work. Just ask Israel and China. Ask the millions of wealthy people with walls around their homes.

Great to see huge reductions in crime there, via a Big, Beautiful wall.
El Paso was never a big crime problem. In fact the trustworthy numbers never really moved. Look at the murder rate...same before and after the fencing. And rapes have gone up.

And of course there are places where a wall makes sense...San Diego and El Paso both being good examples. Though the wall in general should be made as unobtrusive as possible.

So no the wall had no real effect on violent crime in El Paso. El Paso is also relatively low on crime while having a very high illegal immigrant population.

If Democrats thought for a min that illegals were voting Republican, we would see a border wall from space, with landmines, high voltage electrocution fencing and booby traps surrounding it. That's no joke, either. LOl

If it would really work, then go ahead and build it. I don't think most liberals are against it IF it would really do the job. But I wouldn't be for it if it's a waste of good money.

I'm liberal and I don't know any liberals who want illegals invading our country. We have a LEGAL immigration policy and they should use it.

The wall which was approved in 2006 was already completed, and if it had solved the problem, we would not be talking about another wall.

Haha no doubt. They would be enforcing the immigration law and deporting illegals too.

And if Democrats thought for a min legal immigrants voted Republican in majority, they'd shut down legal immigration too. That's probably why there's recordings of Democrats being on the other side of the issue. Perhaps they didn't realize how single-party Democrat immigrants vote.

It would be hilarious to watch Democrats all flip their script on immigration if there was some way to get immigrants and non-whites to majority vote Republican. Republican sure have tried for decades to no avail. About the only way would be to go full open borders, full welfare, and full anti-white scapegoat, but "out-Democrating" the democrats would obviously be pointless.

It's a see-thru fence and not a wall. You know the difference right?

Since there has already been proof provided that the good walls do work what's with the word "if"? It's not a waste of money since they do work.

Not a see through "fence" but a wall and what's the difference since they have proven to work?
