Funny how congress was all for it back in 2006 when the actual wall bill was passed with both Schumer and Obama's signature on it. There is a lot more support for the wall than changing birthright citizenship. That's been tried and tried again but there was little support for it, unfortunately. Criminals, terrorists and the drug runners aren't interested in jobs or birthright citizenship for their kids, thus the wall.

I would understand your objection to the wall if there wasn't overwhelmingly a lot of proof out there that they are a huge deterrant, however that's not the case so I'm puzzled by your stance against it especially since the Border Patrol has said that these walls are needed. Who would know better than them?

The poll you provided also claimed that 81% of Americans support amnesty and a path to citizenship for those here illegally already. I have to wonder who they polled. I don't believe that for one minute.

A Constitutional Amendment to change the 14th will never happen. It would require a 2/3 majority in Congress and ratification by 3/4 of the states. Like it or not birthright citizenship is here to stay.


The Wall was never a real thing, It was a campaign slogan that Trumpers mistakenly believed was an actual plan to do something. Has Mexico paid us for it yet?

They've paid dearly for not dealing with the problem.

Trump said he could just remove it by executive order maybe that will work.

I don't recall him saying that but it wouldn't even require an amendment by congress to do away with that PC policy only. It just needs to be brought before the Supreme Court for the correct interpretation of it as the writers intended it to be.
