Have we seen any evidence that a border wall will stop the flow of illegal immigrants?
Politics, costs aside. What do experts say about the efficacy of this action?
England shares an island with Scotland and Wales, Ulster with the Irish Republic. Despite being islands we still have a problem with illegal immigrants, who for some reason think Britain has untapped resources equivalent to the Horn of Plenty. We have 'people smugglers' from the outside who try to land illegals on the south-eastern shores, and we have confused British citizens who'd welcome the world and his wife until there was standing room only in the cities.
Unless migrants want to live on the sides of Snowdonia, the Grampians or the Pennines - and all the sh** weather that brings with it - we're stuffed full. Somebody's put the word out that we're a 'soft touch' for benefits, Romanian migrants - who are legal - create false passports for Moldovans and Russians and produce handbooks on how to 'milk the state'. While we're still in the EU we've got to give those who are caught the benefit of the doubt, house and feed them, give them 'pocket money' and pay for their offspring still abroad.
Bring on Brexit!
Hadrian's Wall was 16 to 20 feet the Berlin Wall was 11.8 feet (3.6 metres), Israel's Wall — 25 feet (8 metres). So just get a bigger ladder
serms to me like a huge waste of $. immigration from the s border has been going down,and if people would stop hiring them,they wouldnt come in the first place! this is an attempt to "whiten the gene pool", IMO.we dont want "cantalope calves",do we?
Every year billions of dollars of illegal drugs, contraband, human trafficking, and weapons come across the border. Unfortunately, their customers are in the US. This creates more crime in the US, as well as drug addiction and suicides.
Even without the wall, since Trump took office, border crossing is down by 50%. Illegal aliens are now contemplating entering Canada instead because they know that with the wall comes more border patrol and greater likelihood that they will get caught trying to cross over illegally.
good thing it wasnt there when his mum came over.
as ever, do what i say, not as i do.
This hasn't stopped the drug cartels pushing $billions of drugs each yr. And How many terrorists are acceptable to cross the border into the US? 911 was only 19, San Bernardino was only 2. Just like the EO for the Travel Ban, National Security!
According to Credible EXPERTs,
without additional extensive enhancements, the "GREAT Delusional Wall" in Donald's TINY Mind would be rendered useless,
B--------Delusional, Tiny xxxxxx----------------
and if the ENHANCEMENTs were Designed & Implemented, the Titanic Pile of Concrete would not even be necessary ~ Your classic "Catch 22" ~
B--------- What enhancements, and why didn't pres Obama make them?-------
Moreover, has anyone seen the "30 BILLION Dollar Check" he promised 2 begin financing this massive waste? I thought the Mexican People were obligated 2 pay for it in PESOs?
B--------- ????? -----------------
Frequent Trips 2 his compound in Mara-Lago at 3 MILLION per pop to us TAX-Payers but not one single trek to Mexico to secure the "Phantom CHECK" ??? ~ WHY??
B------ Obama made hundreds of trips to California for fund raising, campaigning, and golfing -----------------------
Because he knows Mexico will tell him to go JUMP Off the tallest palm tree in Tijuana and his futile quest will ultimately conclude in a way his "DEALz" usually do, just another in a long line of Embarressing Failures ~
B------ What is an embarrassing failure is you continued vulgar personal attacks on the president of the US ---------------------
Slowly but surely Mr. "BIG Winning Dealz 4 AMERICA" who is using OUR White House for Personal Enrichment at the expense of "WE the People", a Direct Conflict with our Constitution
B------------What conflict with the constitution??? ----------------
, is exposing himself for what he truly is, "BIG LOSER Draft Dodging Coward" ~
B----- Bill Clinton left the country to avoid the draft, but if a democrat does it it is OK ---------------------
Did we ever imagine an "Upside-DOWN WORLD" held hostage by a DANGEROUSLY Self Absorbed Meglomaniac Sociopath
B------ Meglomaniac??? Sociopath??? --------------who is NOW Pillaging everyone including his own FANz to Feed himself & his FILTHY Rich Buddies on Wall Street???
B---- What is your evidence?? -----------
Did U ever IMAGINE every Dawning Day here in the USA would bring MORE Assault on "WE the PEOPLE"
B--------All the assaults have come from the losers on theleft --------
by a Deranged Pseudo-President ???
B----- Deranged, how? Pseudo-Pres, No he is the US pres----------
Building the RESISTANCE against him ~
B------ Resistance like a terrorst ---
MY FAVORITE Protest Mantra?? "Hands Too SMALL, Can't BUILD Wall" !!!!
I've been contemplating this for awhile now, growing up in Arizona, I learned a few things. One of those things being...a wall will not work when they are already digging tunnels. Why waste valuable taxpayer money on something that is destined to fail? Use part of the money in some other fashion, extra border patrol, something, but the wall is going to be useless.
