380 is not that impressive. Seriously.

Id rather see us fund e-verify and make it mandatory. AND put in penalties for renting to illegals. Start jailing people who employ them. You know, doing things that would be effective, not just fund some contractors next yacht.
The yacht may be needed for the moat after the wall is built.

We have boats on the Rio Grand River now.

But I agree with your other suggestions.

As the OP indicted, silence is not disagreement. But when only 10% sign it....im pretty sure thats not exactly a majority either.

That's right.

Compare it to protestors in the street. 800,000 is less than 1 % and they don't represent the majority of anything. They are just the ones voicing opinion.

380 out of 3007 signed it, here is something that is interesting, 43 of those are from Michigan which has 83 counties, so more than half, now if you put them on the map the entirety of the upper peninsula signed it. Those counties are between 94 and 97 percent white, that is interesting. There are other things the upper peninsula is known for, among them militias and well lets not beat a dead horse.

So? Let your little hero Donny make good on his promise and get the $$$ from Mexico to do it.

Or should we just call it what it seems? MORE BS from a true master of BS?

The numbers prove you're wrong.

Getting 380 sheriffs to sign that is not a impressive number. Im not even sure thats 10%
I guess we only have an illegal immigration problem at the border towns

Nothing would impress the left when their new meme (listen for it on every MSM channel) is "The American People Overwhelmingly support [insert progressive talking point here]"

According to the left the majority of Americans support no border wall, banning and confiscating all semi-auto weapons, and anything else on their wish list. They flat out lied in concert when they claimed "border patrol agents do not support a wall".

They have taken "lying until it becomes true" to an entirely new level. Shameful!

They have decided that whoever screams the loudest wins. If that doesn't work there's no problem escalating to violence and mayhem. Such a tolerant and peaceful bunch of hypocrites they are.

Having not been challenged on the subject anywhere in this thread or others, and seeing that it isn't the topic of this thread and the wall is. ( shiny button )
I'm good with it.
The southern border is where the majority cross according to consensus and that is where the wall is needed.

I don't really care who else supports it.
I do, and that's all I am responsible for.
