Next time you're standing in line at the ice cream stand and that large person and her family "cut into line " in front of you ; don't make that face , don't freak out and start a cat fight , don't complain to the management , don't get all huffy and scream out insane profanities , just stand back watch the creamie stand run out of pistachio mint ?
That's exactly why we need a better one , you know kind of like the aisles at the airport check in ? It's all relative you know , so maybe you won't need cry closets at modern day colleges , I guess it's just as simple as where you stand in line ?
I see. Something doesn't work, so we need to spend billions to build more of the thing that doesn't work. Makes perfect sense in somebody's world, I guess.
No , It''s called building a real border wall and not a neighborhood fence as in the gated community next door to you , where you probably push the open button in the morning and evening commutes ?
Walls do work. What doesn’t work or hasn’t work in the past is our will to do something about it...
If you doubt me, go and see how walls work around the world as in Israel, in Saudia Arabia, China, former Berlin wall, Korea, and In Hawaii, where facebook’s CEO Zuckerberg has his retreat home...
Would you agree that a billionaire spending his personal funds on a wall around his property is his right, as long as he obeys the local laws governing such a wall?
Would you agree that building a wall around personal property is vastly different from using taxpayer dollars to build a wall along the entire southern border of the United States, in that it uses taxpayer funds for something that most people, including border security experts, think is a fruitless waste of taxpayer money?
I don’t agree. It is the same thing. A country in nothing more than a collection of people.
That is exactly why we disagree on budgets.
As individuals, we are to live within our means. Spend only what we make...
As a government, we are led to believe deficits doesn’t matter???
Our country is only exist because of language, borders and culture.
Every other nation follows that rule. Why the US is the only country that thinks it is OK for anyone to show up on our door steps and welcomed in with open arms and provide with benefits that even out own citizens don’t get?
It is a formula for disaster...
Just look at Sweden and Germany...today.
This is so disengenuous. Democrats voted for a wall when it was politically expedient.
They always talk about securing the border when they want a comprehensive immigration reform but once it passes, they reneg on paying for the wall and use the excuse “wall does not work and too expensive...”
Yet, every other nation has a border and secure it including Mexico who has one of the toughest immigration law on the books...on their southern border.
Either you want a country or you don’t.
If you support open borders, say so...
Let the debate happen on an equal footing.
Don’t miss lead American voters.
If you actually propose what you support with regard to immigration to the American people, they will
And further more, don’t try to inject race into this debate.
It is not about race. It is about preserving our sovereignty...
1) I do not support open borders (if you mean without restriction) and have never said that I do.
2) I am not these Democrats you refer to so I don't know why you are bringing their actions into this conversation.
3) I am in favor of securing the border; I just think a hugely expensive border wall would be ineffective and a waste of money. [And I was never stupid or gullible enough to believe Mexico would pay for it.]
4) Where did I inject race into the debate?
5) What on earth have I proposed that the American people would reject? Please link to this proposal. I don't recall ever making one so this should be good.
PP, Please don’t take this personal. I was not commenting on you in specific but people on the democratic side. It has been their MO for many years. They talk a good game when it comes to border control but will never follow through. There is no half measure here. It is like being pregnant. Either you are or your are not. There is no half measures. When you don’t support border control, you are for open borders.
PP, do you think people who are against illegal aliens are racist?
It has been the charge by the left.
Some how, you are a racist and white supremist if you want our borders secure and only legal immigration.
That is one of charges against Trump.
Just curious about your views since you claim you are not one of those democrats.
No, I don't think wanting border control means you (the general "you") are racist.
I do think Trump is racist but that assessment is based on many indicators and not directly related to his support of a border wall.
Why do you believe Trump is racist? I am shocked...
You mean to tell me, America in 2016, voted almost 50%, for a racist President.
How does a racist survive in Hollywood for all those years of the Apprentice show?
Remember Paula Dean?
How does a racist be successful in NYC, one of the most liberal city in the US, and be successful as a builder?
How does a racist donate to many democrats including Hillary, and Nacy Pelosi, Schumer...?
Your charges just doesn’t make any sense.
As I said is past postings on these forums, Trump is an egotist, thin skinned and a womenizer but he is not a racist.
You must be joking, Jack! Racism is alive and well down here in Deep South Spanky country! The racists here love him.
Maybe so. That is your problem. Where I am in the suburb of NYC. We have a great mix of all races and cultures.
This charge of racism is getting old. We had racism in this country and they have been addressed by our laws. What is left is individual racism and that cannot be changed easily. It will take time and a new generation to change people’s attitudes and habits...
Institutional racism is the only thing that counts. We have laws against that kind of racism.
I hope you see the difference.
The racist in the south where you live are dinosaurs...
They will die out eventually.
Surprise ! Read the constitution ,... The president has the obligation to protect the US citizens from inside or outside sources of threat , if that threat is the exported poverty of fifty other poorer nations and grossly effects our economy , our healthcare system , our criminal justice system , our unemployment rates ; Guess what ? It's still a threat .
The constitution doesn't say anything about wasting billions of dollars on an unnecessary monstrosity that was originally supposed to be paid for by Mexico.
I've not seen people on this thread who know or understand the American Immigration process. Here are the steps required to come into the United States legally. That's just to stay here legally. To become a citizen is another process. My friends and family member all went through this process. My grandfather came through Ellis Island. Tens of thousands of people legally follow this process every day. I have NO idea why these people at the boarder believe they are better than the thousands of people who obey the laws and come here legally. It's not that difficult.
Apply for an Immigrant Visa
If you’re seeking permanent resident status in the United States, the process you’ll follow will depend on whether you’re already in the U.S.
If you’re in the U.S., you do not have to apply for an immigrant visa. Instead, you will apply for a Permanent Resident (Green) Card through an adjustment of status. The advantage of this is that you won’t have to return to your home country to complete visa processing. (See why the DADA people make not sense?)
If you’re outside the U.S., you will apply for an immigrant visa through consular processing with a U.S. Department of State embassy or consulate abroad.
Both procedures involve several key steps.
In most cases, someone must “sponsor” you, or file an immigrant petition for you.
Once the petition is approved, and there is a visa available in your category, you apply for either a Green Card or an immigrant visa.
You get a medical examination.
You go to an interview.
You receive a decision on your application.
It's not complicated, it just takes time. Not running to the boarder and putting on a show. Not coming here illegally and crying you want to be a citizen. It just requires following the laws of the land.
I was laughing so hard yesterday when I saw that caravan reach the Mexican border and the asylum seekers walked right up and proceeded to casually scale the 20 or 30 foot wall without the use of a ladder and the illegitimate short timer racist idiot in the white house has convinced his little cult members that a couple thousand more feet of a 30 foot high pile of concrete or scrap metal is the answer to their rabid fear of brown people who simply keep prices low in America:
If a destitute under-nourished famished immigrant has the strength to easily scale a 30 foot monstrosity, nobody else should have a problem:
lol: Here's Bozo's wall prototypes that he promised Mexico would pay for 100%: He probably deserves another 'Nobel Peace Prize' for this ludicrous notion: Nothing that a little physical human effort, a ladder, crane, a drone, tunnel, trampoline, super explosively spicy burritos or dynamite can't breach:
So a 2014 photo of a fence separating Morocco from Melilla, Spain, eh?

If walls doesn’t work, why is he doing it?
To keep his promise to his dumb base, of course! You should be able to figure it out though, Jack.
I was referring to Zuckerberg, a big open borders guy...
He build a wall around his own compound in Hawaii.
Okay, he's probably gotten a few threats lately and I doubt seriously he's worried about illegal aliens getting in.
lol, if it weren't for open borders jakclee wouldn't be here, that is of course if he actually lives in the United States:
