So if we have run out of room to place them what are we supposed to do then? That's one of the reasons that we asked Mexico to keep them on their side till we could handle each case.

Individual 1 has been ruled against over and over again for violation of the Constitution and plain overreaching policy. It's not a surprise.

He made an bombastic threat to shut down the Mexican border and then back peddled giving them a year to get their act together. His Mexico is going to pay for the wall was an outright con job on the American people. He canít get along with his cabinet secretaries. Firings and resignations. Outright fiasco.
Once again, it's not Trump's wall! It is the wall already approved of back in 2006 that wasn't built according to specs. Only 35 miles of good barriers were built the balance of over 600 miles were only flimsy fencing. Trump is trying to correct that.

I have posted a link several times denoting how Trump will make Mexico pay for the wall involuntarily. There is no con job. Were you just as concerned about the costs when back in 2006 the actual wall bill was passed and it was to be soley funded by the taxpayer? If not, then I would question why. If you had to fund it would you rather continue paying the over $100 billion a year that illegals cost us instead and all the other national security threats coming through our border than a $25 billion wall that's already proven to work in places where it's been erected?

Yeah, it's been tough draining the swamp including those he thought he could trust under his watch but in the long run it's worth it.

Maybe those who think we can't or shouldn't should look at the picture of all of these people marching up to our border posted under this topic. That's probably only one caravan to. We have had several.

But hold on. He had two years in office with a majority in the House and Senate to do something.

Sigh, I get tired of repeating this. On any legislation a takes a certain number of each party to get it passed. Many Democrats opposed anything Trump proposed and there have been many sell out Republicans in congress also. There never was a filibuster proof majority either.

The only insanity here is the liberal/progressives/democrats and their open border agenda.

Itís almost all young men in that picture - late teens to early 30ís.

He's never had a filibuster proof majority which allowed democrats to block anything and everything they could and he's faced unprecedented obstruction since before he took office.

Wait a minute...the money was approved by the house but when it went to the senate they need 60 votes...guess what? No democrat voted to pass the bill. So your majority comment falls flat.
Obama first term democrats had a super majority and did nothing.....
