1. Campaign promises. Just as Trump needs his wall to be a "fulfillment" of a campaign promise (despite having also "promised" the Mexicans would pay for it), at the mid-terms the Democrats promised that they would never give Trump any money for his unnecessary wall. Who will be first to "break a promise"? The two promises are (for now) mutually exclusive.
2. Why spend 5,700 million dollars on something that will never pay for itself and will never accomplish whatever is its announced objective? Why not do something useful with it, like defeating ISIS or preventing other countries from dumping US dollars as their refuge currency (Russia is furiously buying Chinese Yuan as protection against market fluctuations).
3. Almost all "arguments" for the wall are obvious lies.
If the wall won't work, why are Democrats against building it, why just not care if it's built?
- Yeah, it’s not like there’s anything ELSE that could be done with five billion dollars.00
- the building of the wall would create lots of jobs many of them union jobs
Dems do not support union work if it is real work00
- They are not against building it.
They don't care if it is built and
if Mexico pays for it, up front and no money from the American Taxpayer.
They wont spend five cents on it, since Trump promised Mexico will pay for it, "100 percent",
- Because Trump promised it, and Democrats want to stop Trump in anything he does.00
- the obama administration spent a trillion in 6 months and the left didnt mind. if anyone is that opposed to government spending they're not a democrat there a librarian.00
- Because it would be a 2,000 mile a monument to your irrational fears, big enough to see from space; and I think it’s unwise for the United States to show the world that much fear.10
- Because there's no need to spend too much on walls. I think it's better that we start forming "North America Union" joining Mexico and Canada and make it all one country with one government and one President.30
- Chain link fences or corrugated metal sheets or panels at a height that has a survivable drop on the other side will not work. Thick walls or fencing at 25 ft. high isn't survivable on a drop. Illegal immigrants with the goal of breaking & entering are not experts climbers. Only free solo climbers can possibly climb the border walls/fencing free of anti climbing features.
Borders Walls are designed to funnel illegal border crossers to a gate, slow & stop illegals on their tracks. With an effective wall/fencing along with surveillance technology & ground patrols illegal crossing will be much more difficult to cross or penetrate than a barrier-less border. (The White House fencing & surveillance & armed guards, & Gated Communities works in this manner). Since Ancient times castle walls, border walls has serve to slow down or stop invading hordes for a time to buy time & ready their defenses against the impending hordes.
The great wall, wall guards, wall stations (bases) & signal towers couldn't be penetrated that's why Genghis Khan Had to go through or was funneled to east inner Mongolia where there was no wall. The Mongols where Superior Warrior & Tacticians, Eastern Europeans & Persians were no match against them as well.
Without a barrier tens of thousands can cross at the same time every minute. Walls prevents tens of thousands from braking & entering (invading) at the same time every minute.
The incentives for illegal crossing is fraud. Unaccompanied minors (teenagers) will get welfare & housing with clubhouse amenities. Anchor babies will get welfare/housing assistance. Accompanied minors will get welfare as well. Illegals use false identities & fraudulent social security numbers.
American citizens engaging in welfare fraud or any fraudulent schemes gets charge & imprisoned, but illegal aliens get sanctuary, especially the criminal element as they are not deported.
Before Lyndon Johnson's Presidency vetted Legal Immigrants came for work opportunities & only real refugees were seeking asylum, there was no refugee act at the time. Lyndon Johnson's great society programs initially was for U.S. citizens, as it expanded with various duplicate programs, illegal immigrants with minors & anchor babies are now being covered to overwhelm the school & welfare system.
In the middle east & some Asian/South Asian countries, illegal aliens engaging in capital crimes (rape, murder, smuggling/trafficking (drugs/human), grand theft & robbery) gets executed. Illegal alien gangs robbers/murderers were executed in a middle eastern country using cranes to lift the executed bodies in display for the public.
Until Birthright citizenship, employment opportunities, & welfare/housing benefits are abolished & denied to Illegal Immigrants the way Jordan's current policy is, a barrier wall is necessary. Only real refugees escaping genocides seek refuge in tenth cities Jordan will only provide00
