Technically, Mexico could indirectly pay for the wall if we used seized cartel money.

Tired of being duped?

Tired of being led like Rainman into the wall?

Time for a wall. Need a wall. Time for a wall. Need a wall. Defiantly need a wall. Need a wall. Definitely need a wall. 10 minutes to wall...

I've never seen so many act so deeply intellectually disabled in my fucking life.

Can I mail the treasury some cinder blocks from my back yard for the wall instead of $$$$?

Mail cinder blocks to save $$$? Brilliant! Is that from Trump? :)

All in all it's just another steel slat in the barrier.

So say THEY do build THAT WALL.
Some future president will just have to tear it down.
Some future president like a Ronald Reagan or a Bernie Sanders.
I can hear the cry now... TEAR DOWN THIS WALL.
And that cost of removing Trump's wall will probably cost as much as putting it up.
That cost of putting it up is still a total unknown, by the way....
And as hundreds of illegals, sitting on airplanes with tickets to fly, zoom over that Trump wall at 30,000 feet, one can only imagine the laughter.
After all, no one runs across any border now a day. So yesteryear...
Today illegals simply drive in, or fly in, or are driven in or flown in.
What we really need to ask is.... just how much is Donald Trump making off this farce of a wall? Just how will Donald Trump skim millions off of those billions into HIS off shore bank account(s)?
No one can tell. And besides, Trump has done this before. THAT is why he won't release his tax returns.
It's all about THE CON.

Why would they do that? Unless open borders is their goal.
It will be ineffective, a large waste of money to maintain and it’s a PR nightmare. It’s just common sense to tear it down or at least let it rot in place. Hopefully it’s never built to begin with so the government doesn’t waste our tax money.

Rather than shut down the USA government over a 5 billion dollar wall along the US Mexico border, why not just build a 50,000 wall around Mar-a-Largo and call it a day?

Open borders should be the goal of every nation on this planet...

Mexico will pay for wall.
Border security requires wall.
We will send Mexico money to keep seekers on their side of border.
Who says Republicans don't believe in evolution?

Ineffective and a waste of money so tear it down? I’m not really following. How is it a PR nightmare? Unless you are advocating for open borders why would a wall being there (that you say is not even effective) matter or be a PR nightmare?

No the wall will be ineffective and I don’t like wasting money on ineffective things. Better to tear it down and stop wasting money on upkeep.

The wall is a PR nightmare for the same reason Trump wants it despite its ineffectiveness, it’s a symbol to other countries. Tearing it down would help undo the damage that building it caused.

Well, now the US can't take the money from Mexico to build the wall. Has to come from the Treasury.

Side note: Anyone who thinks that 5 billion is all that is needed to build this wall is a fucking 'moran'. It's been estimated 35 to 75 billion. Fuck cheeto, the wall and anyone stupid enough to support either. Cheeto lied, LIED when saying that Mexico was going to pay for the wall and is now in duhversion mode for his base (either that or he's too stupid to know otherwise - pick one).

Don’t immigrate here illegally?
No, wasteful, xenophobic stupidity.

It’s weird how your position on doing something dumb is that we should half do something dumb as a compromise. Let’s just not do dumb things.

most don't come illeagally, they arrive legally and then they overstay their visas, the wall will not stop that

and I believe we need more immigration, not less, out birthrate is lower than what is need to replace those that died, if they just wait long enough there will not be enough here to stop them.

That's why cheeto and company are stopping it in other ways:

Unless you're of a certain persuasion, then more are welcome:
