It's funny. The more that the Trump administration talks about building "wall" on the southern border..........

And then when they show pictures of the "wall" and it's actually just a fence...........

The more we hear that walls and fences are the same thing. LOL.

What wall are you talking about that is merely a fence? Certainly not those fences that Trump is in the process of fixing. The wall funding that the Democrats turned down weren't for mere fencing either. No, walls and fences are not the same thing in theory but people often use the words interchangeably.

Are you forgetting the pro-types that were built to see which ones would work the best? They weren't mere fences.

Lol.

Yeah, two wires 34" off the ground is quite the obstacle.

If the illegals were only half as lazy as a significant number of welfare recipients, that might work.

As long as the walls and fences around their estates keep out their thug constituents, the Democrats donít care about the rest of us.

When the actual wall bill was approved back in 2006 it was to be for double barriers on the border not just mere fencing. Well congress reniged on it and most of the 700 miles was mere fencing instead. Trump is trying to fix that and build an additional 300 miles of the good physical barriers on the most porous areas of the border (not mere fencing either).

Trumpers don't know the difference. We have had a fence already so therefore, we don't need a wall.
