Congress needs to do their job the house needs to write and pass a funding bill and send it to the senate. The senate needs to take it up and pass it and if anything is different between the two bills it gets worked out in committee. Once it is passed out of both the house and the senate it goes to the president to be sign or vetoed. If it is vetoed congress can work to override it and passed it into law as laid out in article 1 section 7 of the US Constitution.

Does any one think Trump will just say ok no wall.
Every one here has stated how bull headed and stubborn he is.

Nancy then dares him to put it to a vote. She lost that bet. She underestimated.

He said he would not pass a budget without wall money in it.

So who is the problem. If she knows that he will not budge why keep the government shut down.

They are both being equally being arse holes. You know to.

If a border wall prevented 160,000 to 200,000 illegal crossings (excluding descendants) in the next 10 years it would be enough to pay for the estimated $12 to $15 billion costs of the wall.

Newly released research by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) done for the Department of Homeland Security indicates that 170,000 illegal immigrants crossed the border successfully without going through a port of entry in 2015.3 While a significant decline in crossings from a decade ago, it still means that there may be 1.7 million successful crossings in the next decade. If a wall stopped just 9 to 12 percent of these crossings it would pay for itself.

If a wall stopped half of those expected to successfully enter illegally without going through a port of entry at the southern border over the next 10 years, it would save taxpayers nearly $64 billion �" several times the wall's cost.


You Pubes have a short term memory loss, Bone Spurs campaigned on the Wall saying MEXICO would pay for it. No American taxpayer should have their hard earned money used for something that would be obsolete before completion and those that are in favor of it should contribute to the GoFund me page.

Bone spurs are no joking matter. Pretty sure it kills more Americans than cancer and diabetes combined.

Talk about BS!
SCHUMER 2009: Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple.

HILLARY 2015: I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.

OBAMA 2005: We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked.


Why did the libbies change their tune after President Trump pushed for a border wall?


Allow me to answer your question with a question; why didn't Bone Spurs push for the wall for the last two years when the GOPhers controlled Congress, why make it a life or death issue now that DEMs have taken control of the House?

If crying chuck and lying Nancy would help pay for our fence we’d be fine.

I’m thinking white picket fences would be best.

MS posts: If a wall stopped half of those expected to successfully enter illegally without going through a port of entry at the southern border over the next 10 years, it would save taxpayers nearly $64 billion " several times the wall's cost."


Several times the wall's cost. So 64 / 3 = $21.33 billion. That's what you say the wall will cost? Sure it will.

If a wall stopped just 9 to 12 percent of these crossings it would pay for itself.
So you're admitting that a wall isn't very effective.

Better equipment and more personnel will work far better than a wall. Use the money in better ways than a wall. Schumer has repeatedly said we want improved border security, not a new wall.

I just read that some federal workers that are laid off and have to sign up for unemployment. Some are saying that they can’t even go to there kids ball games and they have to eat at home.

How much longer will the Democrats make these people suffer.
