    Democrats with some Republicans passed a bill on Jan 3rd that included the following:

    • More than $1.3 billion for new fencing in the Rio Grande Valley and funding to replace secondary fencing in San Diego and other existing pedestrian fencing.
    • $366.5 million for border security technology.
    • $7.7 million to hire 328 additional U.S. Customs and Border Protection customs officers.
    • $224.6 million for "non-intrusive Inspection equipment" at ports of entry.
    • $7.08 billion for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Over $8 billion dollars to improve border security.
    If $8 billion isn't enough, how much is?

      Not if they do it for the right reason, but they never will.

        However much the Executive Branch says it is.

          Can I quote you on that? If the president was a Democrat, you'd say the same thing, right?

          Trumpers are so terribly short-sighted...just like the Democrats were when Obama was in office.

          I'll also note that you didn't actually answer the question. If Trump says he needs $100 billion dollars, you'll still support that? $200 million? When is enough, enough?

            But that's different....
            The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

              That's what Trump nutters don't seem to understand. When the next Democrat president is in office, they'll be crying foul over their "emergency" plans getting massive funding.

              Congress controls the purse. Go though them. I don't care what party controls the White House. This only ends up badly for us all in the long run...

                That's the rub, you see. Congress won't give Trump money for his vanity wall. Americans are against it. So he wants to just do it by decree.

                Why would you suppose a democrat would care more than a republican, what you think is right? Just remember, we told you so.

                  That's what happens when one thinks politics in Washington is a game show...

                    Sure they will. Trump just wants more than they're willing to offer. The sky is the limit on how expensive this will end up being. Then comes the upkeep.

                    Spend, spend, spend!!!!

                      President Trump did not explain the Democrat opposition to the border wall, the fact that the more foreign nationals who come to the USA, the more registered democrats there will eventually be. But he should have. That’s exactly what happened in California which is now a one party state. That’s important for Americans to know.

                      Democrats are trying to create a Communist nation with socialist economics and one party rule. Fools who support Democrats are supporting the overthrow of America.

                          Not necessarily. The old Reagan republican party was welcoming to immigrants. The immigrants saw Reagan's "Shining City on a Hill" and wanted to be part of it. They believe that effort and energy will be rewarded in America. These people could be republicans, if the republicans weren't currently obsessed with hating them.

                          But I don't think that's going to happen soon. So long as the party turns its back on Reagan's ideals, and seeks a white nationalist state, when those immigrants become citizens, they'll remember.

                          It doesn't have to be that way. But the democrats don't mind that it is.

                          But he should have. That’s exactly what happened in California which is now a one party state. That’s important for Americans to know.
                          Ironically, Trump made it so. Even Orange County has gone blue. Reagan is rolling in his grave.

                          And it's not just there:
                          "So leap with joy;
                          be blythe and gay,
                          or weep my friend with sorrow.
                          What California is today,
                          the rest will be tomorrow.

                            Trump to declare National Emergency to build wall

                            So what did our President do after declaring this "emergency" - he left Washington to play "GOLF" at Mar-Largo!

                            Keeping America safe on the golf links- apparently the Commander and Chief's "bone spurs" have disappeared once he was no longer subject to the draft!
