    thank you for your biased political opinion. My unbiased opinion is we should take advantage of the effort already extended to create a decent border barrier and install the bloody wall/fence/whatever.

    As far as the political theater, it has more to do with the 2020 election than the operation of border security, dontchathink?

    Anything having to do with Trump’s wall is more about political theater than about security, since there is no security-related reason to be building such a wall. That’s what makes it so dangerous that the president is asserting extraordinary emergency powers for a non-emergency that is transparently purely about political theater.

    The wall updates the border barrier. It is needed. Don't be so wrapped up in the political theater that you miss that.

    As far as whether declaring a national emergency over a border breach is justifiable or not, time will tell. Trump will veto the resolution. Will Nancy and Chuck push for overturning the veto?

    There is no security-related reason to build a wall. In fact, as the wall serves (as intended) as a symbol of white supremacy, it will make the country more dangerous by inflaming racial passions.

    Obviously I’m talking about the wall through the parts of the border where DOJ/DHS decided it would be stupid to build a wall.

    Oh, so only some walls are a symbol of “white supremacy”.

    Got it.

    So the wall only keeps non- whites out? What, you think whites are the only people smart enough to figure out a way over the wall?

    Sounds pretty racist.

    The issue is not with a wall. It is with building a wall with no security purpose or any purpose other than the announced purpose of signaling white supremacy.

    It won’t keep anyone out. What it does is proclaim the government’s hostility to people of color.

    False. Mexicans flooding this country and drain resources and cause problems for us. My answer is that if you disagree and want them here, you pay for it.

    So, did the 130 miles of border wall Obama built declare his “white supremacy”?

    Mexican immigration means more wealth for the working class. People will consume resources whether they live in the U.S. or in Mexico, but if they are in the U.S. their productivity is increased and the resources they consume are produced more efficiently due to the U.S.’s greater level of industrialization.

    Yes. But that was also in response to a perceived real threat (no matter how racist the perception). Which is why they built the wall in places where it would be easy to get across the border if not for a wall.
