The Wall May Go Up Faster Than Anyone Thought







In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said he was eager to get President Trump’s Mexican border wall built as soon as possible – and he’s talking about a timetable that could see construction completed long before many expected to see it begun.

“The wall will be built where it’s needed first, and then it will be filled in. That’s the way I look at it,” Kelly said. “I really hope to have it done within the next two years.”

Two years!

Even Trump’s biggest supporters have to find that goal somewhat extraordinary. First, you have the matter of Congress. Will they actually pony up the money? Then you have the ongoing dispute with Mexico, who Trump has promised to make pay for the final tab. Plus, you have the Democrats, who will put up an unbelievable fight to keep the wall from going up. Finally, there’s the underlying nature of federal government projects, which are not typically known for their efficiency.

On the other hand, we’ve never had a president quite like Donald Trump.

In the interview, Gen. Kelly said the wall was only one aspect of Trump’s border security plans.

“Any discussion about the protection of our southwest border involves discussion of physical barriers but also of technological sensors, things like that,” he said. “But it’s a layered approach, and it’s got to be backed up by great men and women who are going to make sure that the wall is intact.”

As for the funds, Kelly said he was confident that Republicans would cough up enough money to get construction underway.

“I think the funding will come relatively quickly and like I said, we will build it where it’s needed first as identified by the men and women who work the border,” Kelly said.

Trump’s hardline stance on illegal immigration separated him from the Republican pack early on, and anyone who expected him to go soft once elected is rapidly waking up to the new reality. With his executive order last week limiting immigration from seven dangerous Middle Eastern countries, President Trump proved that he’s willing to upend the status quo if it means keeping Americans safe. Now he’s turning his attention to one of his biggest campaign promises – a promise his critics said he would never fulfill in a million years.

In Trump, we seem to have one of the rarest creatures in the country – a politician willing to actually do what he said he would do. It’s a remarkable sight to see.

        Because nobody with true self worth will vote in candidates who wants its constituents dependent up the government (read taxpayer) for their every need. There are still too many smart people in this country to fall for their bleeding heart explanations, so they need to import them and indoctrinate them into a life of dependency and, as a result, diehard democrats. They get the money, power and glory, their dependents get a meager but free subsistence and the hardworking true American worker gets the bill for both. The democrats want this nation to become one of outstretched palms!

      • sweetolbob

        The democRATS are attacking because Trump , at the will of THE PEOPLE, had the audacity to defeat, that’s DEFEAT, their lying, sick, vulgar candidate.

    The wall is estimated to cost between 12 and 15 billion dollars. You can bet it will be more than that. President Trump has claimed that if the Mexican government doesn’t pay for it, he will impose a 20 percent duty on products imported from Mexico. Who will pay this tax? Ultimately, the American consumer, as the additional costs will be passed on. This will of course hurt the poorest Americans the most.
    Though President Trump is right to prioritize the problem of border security, he misses the point on how it can be done effectively and at an actual financial benefit to the country rather than a huge economic drain.

    The solution to really addressing the problem of illegal immigration, drug smuggling, and the threat of cross-border terrorism is clear :

    Remove the welfare magnet that attracts so many to cross the border illegally, stop the 25 year US war in the Middle East, and end the drug war that incentivizes smugglers to cross the border.

    The promise of free money, free food, free education, and free medical care if you cross the border illegally is a powerful incentive for people to do so. It especially makes no sense for the United States government to provide these services to those who are not in the US legally.

    Likewise, the 40 year war on drugs has produced no benefit to the American people at a great cost. It is estimated that since President Nixon declared a war on drugs, the US has spent more than a trillion dollars to fight what is a losing battle. That is because just as with the welfare magnet, there is an enormous incentive to smuggle drugs into the United States.

    We already know the effect that ending the war on drugs has on illegal smuggling : as more and more US states decriminalize marijuana for medical and recreational uses, marijuana smuggling from Mexico to the US has dropped by 50% from 2010.

    We have been dropping bombs on the Middle East since at least 1990. Last year President Obama dropped more than 26,000 bombs. Thousands of civilians have been killed in US drone attacks. The grand US plan to “remake” the Middle East has produced only misery, bloodshed, and terrorism. Ending this senseless intervention will go a long way toward removing the incentive to attack the United States.

    It is important for the United States to have secure borders, but unfortunately President Trump’s plan to build a wall will end up costing a fortune while ignoring the real problem of why people cross the borders illegally. They will keep coming as long as those incentives remain.

      • I agree, but it won’t happen this way 🙂

        The Trump wall is for the common people. It will be ugly. Guaranteed.

        • anibanib

          But a large part of the border is the Rio Grande river, is that yours or the Mexicans……..and its Close to 1000miles long, easy to swim across

          • Bad luck ! No wall there…..

          • anibanib

            Then its easy peasy for Mexicans to swim across……and Yanks to also do the same to escape………..

          • Of course 🙂

            So much about “closing” the border.

      The “border tax” will cause the American companies that went South to come back so they can sell their products without the added tax.

      Mexico LOSES THE JOBS and AMERICANS GAIN those jobs.

      Mexico loses and America WINS!

      • CrustyOldGeezer

        Let me guess.

        You think a high paying job recently vacated by an illegal alien will be available to you.

        Your family, neighbors, friends, your community will suddenly become a safer place to live.

        You will here ENGLISH spoken in every place you go.

        The AMERICAN CULTURE will come back into the norm.

        The streets and highways will be safer and less congested.

        The schools will become less crowded and your children will be able to attend class wearing whatever they want including the US Flag pin or emblem.

        You are probably right.

            We needed someone such as him to get this coutry back on the right track. The damnedocrats have just about ruined our way of life and common sense has been gone the whole time that traitor was in office. We finally got a great American that loves his country and wants to build it up, instead of destroying this great country. The people need to get behind him and promote his common sense approach to our way of life and freedoms. This country has been heading down a road of perversity for far to long now. The peoples prayers was answered when Trump was elected and that vile putrous hillary was flushed just as all of the illegal laws that obama put into effect will be flushed. GO TRUMP, GO AMERICA, stop this damned carnage that has been our government for the last two terms.

            The only state that gave a majority vote to Hillary was CALIFORNIA. She did not even carry a majority in her home state of New York, except in New York City. I’ll even post the link for you to see how America actually voted, Here:
            http://www.snopes.com/trump-won-3084-of-3141-counties-clinton-won-57/

            Trump won 3,084 counties, Clinton won 57, out of the total of 3,141 counties in the entire USA. Get it through your thick liberal brain, just once.. YOU LOST.

            Go check the widely published FACTS. Pull your head out of your liberal ass, and start acting like an American Citizen.

          • Mike

            omg. are you aware that the link you posted shows that the statement Clinton only won 57 counties is false? I am not disputing that trump won more counties so did bush, mccain etc, but it’s hilarious you throw out the fake news that clinto only won 57 counties and then provide a website that shows how that was false. thanks for posting. go back to fake news I guess.

            If there were 4 states involved and three states of 3 employees each wanted a raise and all voted for it you would have 9 votes and 3 states in favor of it. If in the 4th state where I live and I have a family of 12 and all voted no for the raise I would have 12 votes vs. 9 votes and it would be 3 states vs 1 state and if the majority ruled instead of the electoral college no raise would be given even though the 3 states voted for it and 1 did not. If you lived in one of the states of 3 what would you say for you did not get the raise. This is why we have the electoral college.

          • glorybe2

            The right wing exists in a fantasy bubble that will not be penetrated by facts or truth. What is really going on has two facets. First the color of the nation is changing a bit. We are becoming a bit browner and a bit blacker and white will no longer be the majority race. Secondly we are much like the American Indians who saw their traditional way of life vanishing and could not stop it. The middle class and the working class are now getting closer to being the poverty class. That trend is very unlikely to change anytime soon. Automation and computers are eliminating human jobs and the number of employed people is shrinking and the real pay of jobs for most people is also shrinking. We are locked into this path due to international competition. If we can not produce it cheaper and better than other nations we can not sell it abroad. Therefore we must use technology and robotics and the like to quickly and cheaply produce products. Even things like corn and wheat are now grown using intense technology and very little human labor. Thus jobs and trades are vanishing and retraining is foolish. That next job that you train for will vanish and you will be stuck in perpetual retraining with very little income for life.

          • John

            And if this contunues, canalabizam will return. We are killing ourselves.

          • Francisco Machado

            Many jobs were displaced by the invention of the wheel. The Age of Steam, portable steam power and powered farm machinery killed a lot of jobs (granted, those “jobs” were done by slaves, so that ended slavery in industrialized nations). The introduction of automated weaving looms caused riots. When Ford invented the moving assembly line with specialized assembly jobs, we were doomed. We’ve just been hanging on since then despite the inevitable collapse of civilization – we’re just living on credit (twenty trillion federal debt) because the government is spending more than the tax base can afford.

          • glorybe2

            In the past the pace at which changed occurred was far slower and the number of trades being eliminated far less. The effect is rear in the hearts of millions of people and an irrational lashing out that will avail them of nothing. Laws and politics will not tend to solve the problem. First we need to confront the fact that we have never had a real economy. That is why we had slave labor and all kinds of laws and systems that held people down. The demand for labor is overwhelming. Drive down a street and see how many things need to be taken care of. Roofs that need repair or cleaning cars that are not in a good state of tune, cracks in sidewalks, homes that need new paint and lawns that need so much improvement. The world has never been able to afford the labor that it needs and has always fought tooth and nail to avoid paying for labor. So now we finally have machines that are on the verge of doing all these things for us. So we will have very few people who work. Those people will have to be paid and paid more than a bare income. They must be able to spend somewhat freely for things other than basic needs. Businesses must have buyers to survive. That means that business and government will have no choice but to pay people not to work. When people see that those that do not work do as well as people who do work then those fears will melt away. Really, people do not like to confront truth. In today’s world many people are simply slaves for a wage. They have very little real freedom at all. How many can admit that they are a slave by the hour or by the week? The fascinating event will be when a machine can actually own itself and invest, with the profits simply going to improve the machine. It would be interesting to see a machine consuming part of an economy and being 1005 self serving. After all, machines pay no taxes.

            And just EXACTLY do you stand on the issues sir? Are you one of those mindless people who think that ALL people coming into this country have pure hearts? You want illegals to be able to vote, though our laws state that they can not, but we know in this last election they did. You’re fine with the 3,000 plus Americans’ killed on 911? I don’t like murder and will defend with my life against all who want to take it, or my family’s, or my friends and neighbors. Who will you defend sir?

            When in America itself people do not have hearts what do you talk about other people.

            I Have a major problem with the killing of 3000+ innocent people, however they did not ask me , so how can I be responsible for something I did not do or approve.
            This ban is as a result of Islamophobia and hatred of Muslims and Islam.
            FYI you are so dumb that you could not see 9/11 coming now that is your fault.

            So sad, Uzoozy, you weren’t intelligent enough to vote for a GREAT PRESIDENT…almost 64 MILLION of us did. Take a look at the national election results overlay map and you will see a sea of RED. Of the 3121, counties 90% voted for PRESIDENT Trump. Then there were the Electoral College results, again PRESIDENT Trump garnered 304 (lost 2) and KILLary garnered 227 (lost 5). Of course, there were also the two recounts where PRESIDENT Trump’s final tallies were increased. So, KILLary lost the same election three times – guess she’s a true three-time loser. God bless PRESIDENT Trump as he forges ahead to Make America SAFE and Great Again – even for you, Uzoozy.

          I just finished reading an article on Pray for Us and what I got out of it is that Americans who send funds by wire transfer may pay more to send money out of the country than the “immigrants”, who apparently pay nothing.

          Here is the message:

          Whether you are enjoying a day of rest or watching the Super Bowl today, here are some important legislative action items that Pray For US wanted to bring to your attention.

          1. Since we spoke out last week, eight new House co-sponsors have signed on to the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act (HR 377). The MB’s numerous front groups, including the Council for American-Islamic Relations, are starting to panic so now is the time to show our support for this act! You can demand a vote on HR 377 HERE.

          2. Plus, we are calling on Congress to begin taxing the tens of billions of dollars in cash that illegal aliens are sending back to Mexico and Central America every year. Did you know: If illegal alien wire transfers were taxed at the same rate that American citizens’ wire transfers are taxed, it could pay for a wall on our southern border in just one year? It’s true and you can support this plan HERE.

            Having lived on the Tx/Mx border for about 20 years,I can tell you that on Friday afternoon and Saturday,the Western Union offices in almost store was crowded with illegals sending money to Mexico and other Countries.

          • cdansreau

            Social Security and medicare have always been designated as retirement funds for senior citizens. The premise has been that you worked, had deductions taken out of your pay (and your employer contributed) and when you retired what you got out was proportional to what you put in when you turn 65. So when did it become a welfare aid for people who have never contributed to it. A good reminder of this would be to rename these to “retirement security” and “retirement medicare”. There is no wonder both are going broke. If you are doing welfare freebies do not use retirement funds. LBJ and the democrats took retirement funds away from a congress untouchable fund to the general fund where they robbed retirement funds for “the great society” and the vietnam war. now they are using retirement funds for illegal alien welfare expenses. Enough, stop using funds raised for retirement purposes for welfare.

          • Mike

            no they are not reciving social security or medicare. you are correct those are for people and their dependents that have paid into it

            Now after the wall is done and deductions are taken for an increased border patrol we can offer a report of this back to mexico in the form of income for them to tax. The recipient of that bank account in mexico just got income sent to them. i do not think we owe mexico a favor but if the illegal aliens that are mexican citizens are taxed here by mexico they will have less of an incentive to jump the fence or do wire transfers.

            that is not what trump has proposed though. he has proposed an import tariff and the costs of goods would then increase here in the u.s. and we would actually pay for the wall wake up people. you elected a con artist at least now try abd stop getting conned.

          • David in MA

            But taxing the funds sent out of America would put the burden of paying for the wall on the illegals, not the American consumer. And as for electing a con artist, nope, what happened was a criminal was defeated.

      • James Andrews

        And we’ve lost more since, between the Fort Hood shootings a beheading of a poor woman in the Mid west somewhere, the Florida club massacre, and the massacre in California, There jhave been close to 200 successful radical Muslim related terror attacks on OUR OWN SOIL, since 2001!

        • glorybe2

          Yet none of the attacks have a thing to do with immigrants and particularly immigrants from the seven banned nations. The guy that did the Orlando shootings was having what is sometimes called queer fears. He murdered gay people as he very much wanted not to be gay but he was in fact gay.

          • James Andrews

            PArt of what you have started has truth to it, but not all. Outside of the Florida/gay related attack, radical Islam was behind MANY of these attacks,especially the one in California, where the guy’s wife had become radicalized, and actually pushed him onto it. Second; there is nothing wrong what so ever, with getting wiser and tougher about our immigration policies, or putting stricter limits on the numbers we allow in per year, and calling for much more serious vetting. It is a matter of both national security, as well as protecting our struggling economy. Good people coming in, can help our nation; bad people want to kill us. Let’s make sure that we take in only the truly good ones!

          • concerned

            Islam seems to be the common denominator.

            Trump can use the illegals for 6 months (chain gang)before senting them back, he can use the drug money rounded up to pay for the wall ( thats money that won’t go back to mexico)

          • ken51136

            Sounds good to me. Put the Illegals to work on the wall, give them free room and board ( bread /water/ bed/ roof over their heads; a Joe’s tent city). Yep, this could be called; making Mexico pay for their part of the wall by sending their workers here to work it off.

            Good one Frank! Who knows…..I am a man with a big heart, and I have no problem with legal immigration, but I stand by my post above……I also have no problem with giving some sort of amnesty/path to citizenship to the truly good ones already here, but only if we seriously tighten up border security and put stricter limits and better vetting into the picture. Too many, too fast, is dangerous for both our security and our economy. I had a great uncle in Ontario, named Frank, but he had a different last name.

            Look at the map of the world today. There are usually around 30-40 conflicts going on around the world at any 1 time. The vast majority involve Muslims. Whether it be Muslim vs. Muslim, Muslim vs. Christian, Muslim vs. Hindu, Muslim vs. Jew, Muslim vs. Buddhist. 99% of terrorist attacks are carried out by Muslims. The U.S. has to start somewhere to vet the Muslims coming into this country so they started with 7 countries, 6 of which have no organized ruling central government. Whether it spreads from there only time will tell but we have to be able to vet all immigrants that come into our country from that part of the world before we can proceed with normal immigration patterns.

          • PatriotGal

            Exactly, Michael.

          • NotJim

            “6 of which have no organized ruling central government”

            Which incidentally means that they cannot participate meaningfully in any vetting process. They have their hands full just keeping control of their territory.

            Islam plus anarchy — great combination.

Get real, or you can get dead when those Democrats who think it is cumbaya with Muslims’ and illegals from Mexico and everywhere else that they are coming from into America that don’t have hidden agendas to do harm!

          • Fuzzface

            It’s obvious you’re just pissed because he doesn’t agree with you 100%. Look at the list and you’ll notice some are Americans. Perhaps we should ban ourselves?!? I understand your fears but the ban should include all Muslim majority countries or none at all. That especially includes those with business ties to our President and Presidents past.

          • PatriotGal

            Fuzzface, the list of countries is the exact same list OWEbama used. Those are the countries that Intel has said have the highest terrorist-tied probability of attacking us from within. Have you been in the Intel briefing? No, didn’t think so. Have you even done any research or just listened to the lame-streammedia spewing lies and garbage? As for your inference, so sad you are so jealous. Hey, if you want to be a multi BILLIONAIRE go out and earn it. Stop being such a green-eyed lib.

          • Fuzzface

            Wrong PatriotGal. I voted for Trump and he has my backing. However it doesn’t mean I can’t think for myself. I doubt you’ve been briefed either. We’re all just regular Americans here but it’s obvious some Trump supporters have narrow views on how things should be run in this great country of ours and are becoming more radicalized against anyone who thinks differently and should suddenly be labeled a liberal or un-American. You and some others here need anger management assistance and not the kind where an AR-15 and an AM-15 (both of which I own and am expert at using) would come in handy against your own American brothers and sisters. FYI, I am a registered Republican since 1980, also did 8 years in the USNR as an Officer in Intelligence Combat Communications and I own my own multi-million dollar company dealing in educational Software. Not the least jealous. Just worried about those who can’t show restraint and attack like rabid dogs just because not everyone agrees with their point of view. I too remember how the Liberal community attacked George W. Bush, Bush Sr. and Ronald Reagan but most of us respected those views without resorting to anger and violence. In many ways your no better than the violent protesters funded by Soros.

            Mike you have a right to your own opinion as does PatriotGal (that’s the first amendment right and I also believe in the second amendment and all the Bill of Rights). However, this country is really in trouble when I see American citizens attacking each other on these sites and are willing to use deportations on regular citizens and/or violence just because of the difference in opinion. I only wish our new President would quit tweeting so much and visit some of these sites so he could find a better way to communicate with all Americans not just those who vote for him like myself. The Russian “apparatchik” are laughing and enjoying what we’ve created.

            Not necessarily true. And the wall isn’t just about keeping criminals and terrorists out, but people with serious diseases, and protecting our workforce and our already fragile economy. Walls often make good neighbors. Let’s face it; much of Central and South America is a mess. There is nothing wrong with trying to force Mexico to clean up their act, as well as trying to protect our citizenry and economy. Look at the mess Germany, France, England, Belgium, etc., are now in, because they were too lax with their immigration policies!

            I hope the overall disarray in foreign policy bureaus makes us less likely 2 go 2 war, and that we can somehow create a MASSIVE infrastructure package. (But THAT could become objectionable if it turns out 2 B all about border walls and toll highways.)

          • James Andrews

            A border wall, and tighter immigration and better border security, can help save us many billions of dollars per year,in the long run. I have nothing against legal immigration, but there is also nothing wrong with putting limits on how many we allow into the country every year, and certainly nothing wrong with asking for much more lengthy and serious vetting of Muslim refugees from the countries that harbor the TAliban, Boko Haram, etc. The only two real jobs the Federal government is supposed to have in the first place, is to ensure our freedoms, which they have often been failing at, and defense of the citizenry. The American public deserves these things.

          • jimmy midnight

          • James Andrews

            You are entitle to your opinion-that’s what makes us Americans. But true conservatives are anti-war, and we don’t want the U.S. to continue acting as the world’s police force. Ron Paul was the smartest and wisest presidential contender the nation ahs seen in probably a hundred years, and the socialists didn’t even give him a slight chance. There is nothing wrong with wanting a smaller, fiscally responsible Federal government, and ensuring our rights and freedoms, including economic freedom, especially from our financially corrupt Federal regime. Many nations make it hard to get into them, especially to immigrate into them. The U..S. should be the same. There is nothing wrong with trying to protect the citizenry from criminals, murderers, diseases, and damage to our economy and our tax base.

          • jimmy midnight

            Always respected Ron Paul, particularly 4 his non-interventionism. Disagree with him about the desirability of shrinking the national government. That always strengthens the almost invariably oppressive power of state governments,

          • James Andrews

            Believe it or not Jimmy, I understand that, and, occasionally, the Feds do something good, in order to protect us taxpayers etc. Years ago, they came in and went after the city council of Newark, New Jersey, because they had held a closed meeting, trying to “decide” what to do with some excess money in their yearly budget, and during this meeting, they had “decided” to give it away to “charity”. Well, the Feds got wind of it, and put a stop to it-this was good! Government is never supposed to be in the charity business in the first place. If you have excess dollars at the end of the year, in the tax kitty, it should be put into a roll over account or “rainy day” fund, to be used the following year or so, but not given away to charity! They got spanked on that one. The bottom line is that, like most things, it is a balancing act. There are areas where the Feds have gotten into, where they never should have been involved in, in the first place. We as citizens, have to always watch out for each other as well. But, we have as a whole, let both our state and Federal governments grow too large, and they are a huge reason for at least some of the problems we have now, including our somewhat high tax burdens.

            Reagan created a strong economy through deregulation and lower taxes like President Trump is going to do. Obama has proved it, when the government sticks it’s nose in the private sector, prices go up. Obama promised to lower healthcare costs by $2,500 instead healthcare costs went up by over $5,000.

          • mac12sam12

            Obama has spent more money than any other president after promising to cut the debt in half his first term, educate yourself. His trillion dollar stimulus didn’t stimulate anything. It was used a payoffs to unions and donors and failed “green energy” companies like Solydra who after receiving $525 million and a week late they go bankrupt. No funny money there, right? The ACA website cost $6 billion dollars and all the tech experts said it should have cost $6 million. President Trump we speak will eliminate waste.

            A rule low information liberals should learn, a country cannot tax itself into prosperity. It’s the consumer who stimulates economies, not the government.

            Healthcare costs have gone up $5,000 dollars, but it doesn’t matter because it’s collapsing under it’s own weight. Lesson learned, keep the garment out of the private sector.

            Trump isn’t making America hate, it’s the democrat terrorists rioting in the street and beating up Trump supporters. Those millions in the street you see marching are the minority, while the majority is sitting at home watching these violent buffoons.

            Deregulation is what killed many American jobs. Sent them out of the country.

            American health care is the world’s most expensive. The primary expense driver is bad debt. Health care costs are coming down.

          • mac12sam12

            And St. Obama has spent more money that all the presidents combined.

            It’s expensive regulations and taxes that drives businesses out of the country. You have zero understanding of the economy.

Ron Paul, was by far, the wisest and smartest presidential candidate the nation has seen in over a hundred years. Please, get back on your meds, study some history, and especially some REAL WORLD ECONOMICS.

          • AKLady

            Really?

            Strange, most do not agree with you in regard to the Austrian economist. His original theory was that government intervention was necessary for successful economic growth. He does not even ma it into the top 10.

          • mac12sam12

            Libbot, you get the government out of the private sector for successful growth. Trump will lower the business and the corporate tax rate as well as middle class taxes. He will also get rid of most of the expensive regulations that numb nuts like you pay for.

            An Austrian economist? Seriously? See ya, party hack.

          • AKLady

            You just made a complete fool of yourself, for no less than the third time today.
            Von Mises was an Austrian. He studied economics in Austria.

            He was a Jewish refugee who fled from Hitler.

            .

            America already has the lowest effective, business tax rate. Your so lacking in data, you have no comprehension as to what companies pay or do not pay taxes. Lower taxes any further, you can kiss your military good-by

            Here is a list of companies that the government gives money to. They are huge. They pay $0.00 income taxes. http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/markets/2016/03/07/27-giant-profitable-companies-paid-no-taxes/81399094/

          • mac12sam12

            Europe has already proven that socialism doesn’t work as well as communism. I don’t need the opinion of a socialist.

            You are REALLY low info. We have the highest corporate tax rate at 35%. Businesses know that the tax rate is going down to 15%. Already three car companies that were going to build plants in Mexico told Trump that they’re building plants in the US.

            The CEO of Intel also told Trump that they’re building a $7 billion dollar plant in Arizona. Carrier is expanding their US operation that will create jobs. Lower taxes and deregulation is the key to a good economy.

            Keystone/Dakota pipeline will create 50,000-75,000 high paying construction jobs using US steel which will be good for that steel industry.

            Building the wall will also create 50,000 high paying construction jobs.

            We don’t need more taxes, we need more taxpayers and that’s what will happen.

            President Trump, creating jobs 101.

          • AKLady

            You are obviously too brainwashed to look up facts,
            Tax rates don’t mean anything when the money earner pays no tax.
            The Dakota pipeline will provide ZERO long term American jobs.
            The Keystone Pipeline construction will employ more Canadians than Americans.
            The Canadian company will not be using U.S. steel.
            .
            The extent of your brainwashing is terribly sad. When someone say illegal immigrant, you think Mexico. The majority of illegals enter the U,S on work visas. They simply do not exist the country to renew their visas. The next largest segment enters as turists.

          • mac12sam12

            Here’s some facts, lower taxes stimulate the economy, as well as deregulation.

            By definition a construction job is temporary until the next construction job, and with President Trump they’ll be a lot of those. The Canadian pipeline was already built in Canada so the rest will be built by American using US steel, see the genius of The President? Helping two industries at once.

            There’s also illegal aliens coming in from S. America. If you have a visa obviously you’re legal, it’s the border jumpers who go on welfare in sanctuary cites that are the Problem. President Trump is gong to defund those cities in the US and save taxpayers $300 a year. Did I mention that President Trump’s a genius?

            Northern border of Alaska?
            The northern border of Alaska is the Arctic, thousands of miles of ice and water.

            “Death to America” is a slogan which has been in use since the

            Another similar slogan fused in Iran was “Death to the Soviet Union”.
            That one has morphed to “Death to Russia”

            In speeches to university students, Khamenei interpreted the slogan as “death to the U.S.’s policies, death to arrogance”.

          • mac12sam12

            Both Obama and Carter did the same thing and Trump will also be able to block anyone or any country from entering the US. Educate yourself and read the constitution.

          • AKLady

            A false exaggeration of fact.
            First, refugees do not travel on visas. Second, Obama’s restrictions were based on a specific threat and a single country. Trump’s ban is based on religion, if anything..

            Carter banned immigration from Iran during the hostage situation. At that point in time, we were on a ‘war footing’ with Iran.

            The Obama administration slowed its processing of Iraqi refugee applications, was fundamentally different in intent and logistics. Two men suspected of making bombs to target American troops in Iraq were living in Kentucky as refugees. Those men had lied n their paperwork for refugee status.

          • mac12sam12

            Boy are you dumb, ISIS has declared war on the US from the countries he’s blocking. You define party hack, Obama blocks a threat=good. Trump blocks a threat=bad. See the polls coming from Europe on refugee immigration? By a vast majority they’re tired of the refugees because they don’t assimilate.

            In Sweden violent crime has gone up 300%, and rapes and sexual assaults are up by 1,472%. Sweden is second in the world of in rapes with Lesotho South Africa being first.

            How about this fact: All of the top 6 countries by rape rate are Christian

            Your numbers are off. Sweden in #6. The U.S. is #14 — only because the majority of rapes in this country go unreported. Australia is #11. The countries with the lowest rape rates are all Muslim majority nations, except for .Liechtenstein.

            By the time Obama took office, the economic growth rate was -0.92%. Yes, that is a negative number. In 12/2009 it was 0.11%, 12/2010 – 4.56%; 12/2011 – 3.64%, 12/2012 – 3.24%, 12/2013 – 4.31%, 12/2014 – 4.07% …

            I agree! Also this is in the mix. The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.http://www.wnd.com/2015/07/the-obama-clinton-cloward-piven-legacy/

            Hasan signs his letter with his name and the abbreviation SoA — Soldier of Allah.
            John Galligan, the attorney for Hasan, said the letter “underscores how much of his life, actions and mental thought process are driven by religious zeal. And it also reinforces my belief that the military judge committed reversible error by prohibiting Major Hasan from both testifying and arguing … how his religious beliefs” motivate his shooting,” Fox News reported.

          • Roswell Evans

            He wanted to be a soldier for God. Your point is what? He stated that, not me. Many of the concepts of God found in Islam are different from and even stand contrary to the way the Messianic faith perceives God. Islam denies Yeshua’s divinity and incarnation, His atoning death on the cross and His resurrection. Islam denies the triune nature of God’s being and declares that God has no son. The fundamental precepts of the Messianic faith are an abomination and a heresy in the eyes of Islam.
            The God portrayed in the Bible is our Father in heaven who loves sinners, desires their salvation and longs for a personal relationship with them as His children and His friends. In His great love he sent Messiah Yeshua to die on the cross to become a redeeming sacrifice, to atone for them and to give them total salvation and eternal life. This salvation is a gift of grace given freely to all who believe in Yeshua. On the other hand, the God of Islam does not love sinners and demands humans to save themselves by total surrender to him, as slaves who obey his commandments perfectly. God of the Bible is faithful to His words and promises. The God of Islam is arbitrary, doing as he pleases, and is not committed to his own words and promises. In the Messianic faith, God gives us security and confidence in our salvation – which is not dependent on us but only on the perfect work of the Messiah. In Islam, the believer has no confidence in his salvation, and even a good God-fearing Muslim might find himself in hell despite all his efforts, if God (according to his arbitrary sovereign will which can’t be disputed) so desires. In the Messianic faith, God treats the repentant with love and kindness. In Islam the fate of a man is determined from the outset by God and is unchangeable. https://www.oneforisrael.org/bible-based-teaching-from-israel/difference-god-allah/

          • Apolloone

            Roswell I agree with you except about Jews and Christians worshipping the same God, the name Muhammad chose is a the true God many called Allah but the name is as far as it goes, even Muhammad believed that the entity who contacted him was either Satan or one of his agents but Muhammad’s rich wife convinced him it was an angel from God, it’s been written that she was a Catholic this by a Catholic priest. Even common sense comes into play here because no way would the true God give some man 600 years later in a desert cave a message 180 degrees different than Messiah taught, the message of Islam is more likely something someone possessed would teach, it is evil. I have to consider that Islam will be ruling the world at some point when Messiah returns considering the beheaded multitude, this is how Muslims deals with “Infidels” I forget the passage but Yahweh is speaking about a people from countries during the “End of Days” that are Muslim nations today, He describes them as cruel and they haven’t compassion on the young nor the old, nor on women and children, this is consistent with the Ishmael prophecy.

          • AKLady

            Islam, Judaism and Christianity are Abrahamic religions.
            Islam and Judaism do not recognize Christ as a god.

            The Old Testament God is wrathful, angry, demanding, murderous .

            The Jewish faith does not hold Mary, mother of Jesus, in any esteem.
            Islam dedicates an entire Koran chapter to Mary.

            fHe was adopted by Joseph -According to Jewish law, adoption does not change the status of the child.aith clearly documents tha6 Christ is not, cannot be of the House of David.

            Then there are those pesky messianic predictions: .H e will bring peace to the world, gather the Jewish people from their exile to the land of Israel and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem. After Jesus’ appearance, the Temple was destroyed, the Jews were exiled all over the world and we have not even had one day of peace in the past 2,000 years.

            For a lengthier discussion on this subject I suggest the books, “The Real Messiah,” by Aryeh Kaplan, “Faith Strengthened” by Isaac Troki, “You Take Jesus, I’ll Take God”and “Their Hollow Inheritance” by Michoel Drazin.

            You’re saying that the God of Abraham and the Muslim god are the same, you’re 100% wrong. First of all their messages are 180 degrees apart, the Messiah the one we Christians call Jesus is as different to Muhammad as the Sun is to the Moon, a good analogy since Muhammad chose one of 350 pagan idols some of stone and some of wood and called it Allah, I could pick a stone and call it Yahweh the One who inspired the Bible but it would still be a stone. Muhammad believed at first the entity he met in the desert cave was a either Satan or a Jinn [fallen angel/demon] but his wife convinced him it was an angel from God, Muhammad was illiterate and acted in ways similar to demon possession. Whatever, but it’s for certain Yahweh/Jesus/Allah the true God would not give a man 600 years after Messiah a message 180 degrees different. “If they tell you I’m in the desert believe it not” Muhammad taught Hate and War Jesus taught Love and Peace. But you go right on defending these deceived people called Muslims, if you have children or grandchildren one day they will bow to this false god of Islam or die by the sword. Here is what Muslims are taught concerning gays: “Should you find them [homosexuals] among you, you must bind them and take them to the highest point in your communities and drop them on their heads, this happened about three months ago and was filmed. As Christians we are to pray for them not kill them, I know you’ll try to bring up an OT point out of context, So keep it with what Jesus taught and what Muhammad taught, one of them is a Liar and Muhammad wins because the Qur’an is filled with lies and proven fables that he took from the Jews. The Elohim of the Bible gives us a choice the author of the Qur’an does not, you either worship him or die by the sword and that’s a fact that is provable.

            Christianity. The Aramaic word for “God” in the language of Assyrian Christians is ʼĔlāhā, or Alaha. Arabic-speakers of all Abrahamic faiths, including Christians and Jews, use the word “Allah” to mean “God

            You have been lied to. Whoever taught the hate you spew did the work of Satan.
            Muslims worship the Old Testament God of Abraham.

            The English word “God” is translated into many lamgiages. Here is a list http://www.indifferentlanguages.com/words/god

            Muhammad has never been considered to be a god, just his Messenger. Many faiths do not recognize Jesus as a God. It was 300 Catholic Bishops in 325 AD who decided Jesus was God. Look up the Council Of Niceea
            Educate yourself. Sin no more. Lie no more. Stop spewing fantasy and hate.

          • Apolloone

            I never said Muhammad was considered a god, he was a crazed evil man, who did everything and taught everything Jesus was against, I have more understanding about Islam than those who adhere to it and as much as those that teach it. Islam is a Fascist Political Ideology run by mad men with an agenda of forcing their ugly ideology on the whole world. Islam is a tool of Satan, but of course you and your ilk would support such an evil ideology, you are one deceived person, the day is coming and coming soon when the Messiah returns to put this madness down. I couldn’t care less about the Council of Nicene you have no idea of true Christianity all you can do is spew back what some atheist professor said at some so-called ivy league university and you think you’re an expert, or you believe the lies of some Imam and you’re an expert on Islam, you’re typical of why and what is wrong with America today.

          • AKLady

            He was never diagnosed mentally ill, although from his actions he was divinity mentally ill.
            He was more radical in his beliefs. Religious and ideological beliefs[edit]
            According to one of his cousins, Hasan was a practicing Muslim who became more devout after his parents died in 1998 and 2001.[17] His cousin did not recall him ever expressing any radical or anti-American views,[17] and family also described Hasan as a peaceful person, and a good American.[43] One of his cousins said Hasan turned against the wars after hearing the stories of soldiers whom he treated in therapy after they returned from Afghanistan and Iraq.[44] His aunt said that he did not tell the family he was being deployed to Afghanistan.[45]
            The late Anwar al-Awlaki in 2008, with whom Hasan communicated in the months prior to the shootings
            In May 2001, Hasan attended the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in the Falls Church area for the funeral of his mother[46] and occasionally after that. One of his brothers lived in Virginia but Hasan generally attended a mosque in Silver Spring, Maryland, closer to where he lived and worked, where he was well known by the imam over a period of ten years.[47] Faizul Khan, the former imam of the Silver Spring mosque where Hasan prayed several times a week, said he was “a reserved guy with a nice personality. We discussed religious matters. He was a fairly devout Muslim.”[18] Khan said Hasan often expressed his wish to get married, and the imam said, “I got the impression that he was a committed soldier.”[23]
            From January 2001 to 2002, Anwar al-Awlaki was the imam of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque; he was then considered a moderate. Also serving as the Muslim chaplain at George Washington University, he was frequently invited to speak about Islam to audiences in Washington, DC and to members of Congress and the government. Hasan reportedly has deep respect for al-Awlaki’s teachings.[48]
            From December 2008 on, Hasan sent Awlaki as many as 20 e-mail messages, but a counter-terrorism specialist who reviewed the e-mails at the time considered that “they were consistent with authorized research Major Hasan was conducting.”[49][50][51]
            After the shootings, the Yemeni journalist Abdulelah Hider Shaea interviewed al-Awlaki in November 2009 about their exchanges, and later spoke to a Washington Post reporter. According to Shaea, Al-Awlaki said he “neither ordered nor pressured … Hasan to harm Americans”.[52] Al-Awlaki said Hasan first e-mailed him December 17, 2008, introducing himself by writing: “Do you remember me? I used to pray with you at the Virginia mosque.”[52] According to Al-Alwaki, Hasan said he had become a devout Muslim around the time the imam was preaching at Dar al-Hijrah in 2001 and 2002. (Note: This followed the death of Hasan’s mother in 2001; Hasan prayed most of the time at a mosque in Silver Spring, Maryland, to which he belonged for ten years, as noted above in the previous section of this article.)
            Al-Awlaki said, “Maybe Nidal was affected by one of my lectures.” He added: “It was clear from his e-mails that Nidal trusted me. Nidal told me: ‘I speak with you about issues that I never speak with anyone else.'” Al-Awlaki said Hasan arrived at his own conclusions regarding the acceptability of violence in Islam, and said he was not the one to initiate this. Shaea summarized their relationship by saying, “Nidal was providing evidence to Anwar, not vice versa.”[52]
            Hasan’s psychiatry master’s fellowship at USUHS was in Disaster and Preventive Psychiatry. The Air Force Lt. Col. Dr. Val Finnell, a graduate school classmate in the Master’s in Public Health program, said that in a class on environmental health, Hasan’s project dealt with “whether the war on terror is a war against Islam” and the effect on Muslims in the military, which Finnell thought was strange.[53] According to Colonel Terry Lee, since retired, “He [Hasan] said ‘maybe Muslims should stand up and fight against the aggressor’. At first we thought he meant help the armed forces, but apparently that wasn’t the case. Other times he would make comments we shouldn’t be in the war in the first place.”[54]
            Hasan’s business card left in his apartment describes him as a psychiatrist specializing in Behavioral Health – Mental Health – Life Skills, and contains the acronyms SoA(SWT).[55][56][57] According to investigators, the acronym “SoA” is commonly used on jihadist websites as an acronym for “Soldier of Allah” or “Servant of Allah,” and SWT is commonly used by Muslims to mean “subhanahu wa ta’ala” (Glory to God).[49][58]
            A review of Hasan’s computer and his multiple e-mail accounts revealed visits to websites espousing radical Islamist ideas, a senior law enforcement official said.[59]

          • AKLady

            Hassan was diagnosed as mentally ill.

            Both his fellow students and the faculty at USUHS were deeply troubled by Hasan’s behavior — which they called disconnected, aloof, paranoid, belligerent, and schizoid

          • NotJim

          • Jimmy King

            Roswell, all of the attacks that we have had in this country have been carried out by american muslims that have been radicalized while here in the US. They are being told by ISIS that America hates Muslims. That america is at war with islam. Then we have a President who says he is going to ban all muslims. Do you think that helps prevent further radicalization? The Ban feeds right into the hands of ISIS and becomes a recruiting poster for them. If we have had NO attacks from people coming from these countries, we have nothing to worry about. Announcing a War on Islam only hurts. It makes us LESS safe not more. Why do you and Trump want to make us Less safe??

          • Roswell Evans

            I don’t want to make us less safe. We just have different solutions. The ban would be just temporary. That’s what makes America great, everyone is allowed an opinion.

            Not completely true, as some were inspired by ISIS. Either way, there have been terrorist attacks and ruthless murders performed by radicalized, Jihadist Muslims.

        • Jimmy King

          and none of them from people who came from the countries listed in the ban, or across the mexican border

          • James Andrews

            That doesn’t matter, first of all. The so called “ban” is only temporary, and there is certainly nothing wrong with asking for much more thorough vetting of any immigrants period, regardless of whether or not they are from Muslim countries. There is also absolutely nothing wrong with putting limits on how many immigrants we allow to come into our nation every year as well. It should be hard to get into America, not easy. The two true responsibilities of the Federal government, are to ensure our freedoms and rights, and to ensure the defense of the citizenry. Nothing wrong with that.

          • Jimmy King

            James, I agree with much of what you are saying, but your logic is off. Lets start with, it already is hard for these people to get in. They are vetted for 2 years prior to admission. I think you mean ensure the safety of the citizens, not ensure the defense of. And if the ban is to ensure the safety, why ban people from the 7 countries that have NEVER produced one terrorist that has killed here? The problem with the ban, is that is feeds right into ISIS’ narrative. All the attacks since 9/11 have been from american muslims who have beed radicalized. ISIS tells them that America is at war with islam. Banning muslims feeds into that narrative. So if you are helping ISIS to recruit and banning people from countries that have never produced terrorists who kill here, How are you making us safer?

        • AKLady

            Then he just might do that being all the other politicians info is brought out to the public. Fair is Fair

          • alegalcitizen

            His MOTHER IS a LEGAL citizen of America, her husband was working in Canada, she was with him, her child CRUZ is a LEGAL American citizen just like his LEGAL American citizen Mother.

          • John

            Yes Cruz was born in Canada and his mother a US citizen was not in the military so he was born as a Canadian and did not become a US citizen until he was ready to run for the senate.

          • NSB FL

            It’s my understanding that Sen Cruz had dual American-Canadian citizenship. He gave up the Canadian citizenship when he ran for office. I am and have always been a Trump supporter. But I must say that Sen Ted Cruz is a great example of a conservative constitutionalist and he is an asset to our country.

          • David in MA
          • alegalcitizen

            I base it on the premise that if he is born to a LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZEN, that he is also a LEGAL American citizen. What is drrichswier.com?? I’m not going willy nilly to those websites. The first one took me to a website for tickets????
            US LAW states if a child is born in a foreign country, they are a citizen of the country of their Mother’s birth. So the way you think Valerie Jarrett who was born in IRAN of American parents is Iranian??? You know one of Obama’s top advisors.

          • David in MA

            Cruz is a Canadian citizen.
            If he were to release his records it will be found he came to America on a student visa and never left, just like your boy Obama.
            Jarrett is a little different than Cruz because at the time Cruz was born neither of his parents were American citizens, (same as Rubio who technically is a Cuban citizen) they both took Canadian citizenship and, also at that time Canada did not recognize dual citizenship.

          • alegalcitizen

            EVER heard of Google??? Google this then get back with me: Is Ted Cruz Mother a Legal U.S. Citizen, YES she most certainly was, she was born in Delaware, you know one of the States of the UNTIED STATES OF AMERICA. She was living in Canada because her Husband worked in the oil fields. HE is a LEGAL citizen of the U.S.
            Obama is NOT my Boy, Trump is my Guy, I’m a died in the wool Republican, you’re just a died in the wool IDIOT! Do some research and you won’t look so stupid!

          • David in MA

            wrong, cruz is not a legal U.S. Citizen, end of discussion.

          • alegalcitizen

            Bury your head in your orifice then, but your are WRONE, end of discussion.

          • alegalcitizen

            Cruz’s MOTHER is and was at the time of his birth a U.S. LEGAL citizen. So with your way of thinking if an American citizen was in Germany with her husband serving in the service the child would be a German???

          • John

            No I have a cousin born in Germany while serving in the service and she is a citizen of the USA. But I belive that Cruz’s mother was not in the service.

          • alegalcitizen

            It doesn’t matter if she was in the service or not, he is a LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZEN. So if that were true then Obama’s most trusted advisor Valerie Jarrett would be considered an Iranian, because her parents were professors teaching in Iran at the time of her birth. She is NOT considered an Iranian citizen.

        • cdansreau

          the way i understand it, citizenship is a right according to the 14th IF the child is born and “subject to the jurisdiction” of the USA. The fact that the parents are illegals means they are not voluntary subject to the jurisdiction, they have broken laws and are here illegally never having sworn alliegance to obey the US laws. what is needed is a law defining a long form birth certificate is not used for this childs birth and a certificate of live birth/registration be used instead.

          • David in MA

            The 14th Amendment was to address the newly freed slaves, not anyone else. And, as for Rubio, when he was born he was not subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S., he was and is subject to the jurisdiction of Cuba as neither of his parents were U.S. citizens at the time of his birth.

          • David in MA

            As for the last parts of your post, read this:

            U.S. Attorneys » Resources » U.S. Attorneys’ Manual » Criminal Resource Manual » CRM 1500-1999 » Criminal Resource Manual 1901-1999

            1907. Title 8, U.S.C. 1324(a) Offense

            Title
            8, U.S.C. § 1324(a) defines several distinct offenses related to
            aliens. Subsection 1324(a)(1)(i)-(v) prohibits alien smuggling, domestic
            transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring
            unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to
            enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and
            abetting any of the preceding acts. Subsection 1324(a)(2) prohibits
            bringing or attempting to bring unauthorized aliens to the United States
            in any manner whatsoever, even at a designated port of entry.
            Subsection 1324(a)(3).

            Alien Smuggling — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) makes it an offense
            for any person who — knowing that a person is an alien, to bring to or
            attempts to bring to the United States in any manner whatsoever such
            person at a place other than a designated port of entry or place other
            than as designated by the Commissioner, regardless of whether such alien
            has received prior official authorization to come to, enter, or reside
            in the United States and regardless of any future official action which
            may be taken with respect to such alien.

            Domestic Transporting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it an
            offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the
            fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States
            in violation of law, transports, or moves or attempts to transport or
            move such alien within the United States by means of transportation or
            otherwise, in furtherance of such violation of law.

            Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for
            any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an
            alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation
            of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to
            conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place,
            including any building or any means of transportation.

            Encouraging/Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an
            offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to,
            enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard
            of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in
            violation of law.

            Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v)
            expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid
            or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.

            Bringing Aliens to the United States — Subsection 1324(a)(2) makes
            it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of
            the fact that an alien has not received prior authorization to come to,
            enter, or reside in the United States, to bring to or attempts to bring
            to the United States in any manner whatsoever, such alien, regardless of
            any official action which may later be taken with respect to such
            alien.

            The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act
            (IIRIRA), enacted on September 30, 1996, added a new 8 U.S.C. §
            1324(a)(3)(A) which makes it an offense for any person, during any
            12-month period, to knowingly hire at least 10 individuals with actual
            knowledge that these individuals are unauthorized aliens. See this Manual at 1908 (unlawful employment of aliens).

            Unit of Prosecution — With regard to offenses defined in subsections
            1324(a)(1)(A)(i)-(v), (alien smuggling, domestic transporting,
            harboring, encouraging/inducing, or conspiracy/aiding or abetting) each
            alien with respect to whom a violation occurs constitutes a unit of
            prosecution. Prior to enactment of the IIRIRA, the unit of prosecution
            for violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2) was each transaction, regardless
            of the number of aliens involved. However, the unit of prosecution is
            now based on each alien in respect to whom a violation occurs.

            Knowledge — Prosecutions for alien smuggling, 8 U.S.C. §
            1324(a)(1)(A)(i) require proof that defendant knew that the person
            brought to the United States was an alien. With regard to the other
            violations in 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a), proof of knowledge or reckless
            disregard of alienage is sufficient.

            Penalties — The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8
            U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a
            fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both.
            With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii),
            domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or
            aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5
            years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or
            private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment
            is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided
            for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily
            injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results
            in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by
            imprisonment for any term of years. The basic penalty for a violation
            of subsection 1324(a)(2) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not
            more than one year, or both, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(A). Enhanced
            penalties are provided for violations involving bringing in criminal
            aliens, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i), offenses done for commercial
            advantage or private financial gain, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(ii), and
            violations where the alien is not presented to an immigration officer
            immediately upon arrival, 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(2)(B)(iii). A mandatory
            minimum three year term of imprisonment applies to first or second
            violations of § 1324(a)(2)(B)(i) or (B)(ii). Further enhanced punishment
            is provided for third or subsequent offenses.

          • cdansreau

            Very Impressive post! I may be missing something though because i do not see the relevance to my post. I think we know that illegals are criminals by jumping the fence and the same thing is true of anyone aiding or abetting them. (which makes some cities criminals). I am saying that we do not provide a birth certificate that indicates that they are citizens. I am aware that Obama had a certificate of live birth initially posted as “proof” that he was born in the US, after the outcry he then posted the long form birth certificate which has been shown to be a fake composite. God help us if the democrats manage to elect a mexican obama. Anyway the hospital according to law as you state has a duty to call INS. About the only thing i will add is that the imprisonment might consider a work farm to reduce the cost of the jail time or even to award a contract with mexico to jail them with a monthly fee and inspection that they are there.

      • lha

        It might surprise You,but US Citizenship is not automatically bestowed on illegal aliens born here. I lived on the US/Mx border for many years,and endured many reports on TV of illegally obtained birth certificates being sold and lost in the storm of illegality that is the area. In this time,I researched,with a Federal Judge and several Lawyers[friends] the issue of automatic citizenship,and there is no statute dealing with illegal alien births. This is a phenomenon dreamed up by Liberals. There is NO right to entry or Citizenship for people born here to ILLEGAL persons. No other Country has this either!!

        • John

          Send this to your politicians and make it known on the news

        • alegalcitizen

          I’m also on the US/MX border, and yes we do give a birth certificate to 2 illegal aliens having a child on our soil. We also send them food stamps even if they live in Mexico! Try shopping on food stamp Wednesday. WE also provide them with Medicaid, WIC, and Schooling. IF one parent lives in the US, and one in Mexico we are FORCED to educate the Mexican child. Check it out the Monitor, McAllen, Texas on ISD Progresso.

          • John

            If they are not in the USA paying taxes they why do they get food stamps sent to them in Mexico?

      • Dee

        I totally agree !

      • Mathew Molk

        That need to be addressed by a constitutional amendment,,,,and I see no reason we can’t make it retroactive.

  • Righteous Truth

    The actual construction of The Wall – EASY. Getting Congress to provide the funds – EASY. Forcing Mexico to “pay” fot The Wall – EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT. If we want to ensure The Wall gets built to President Trump’s specifications, which part of the process should receive attention FIRST? If a real estate tycoon wants to build a hotel in downtown Manhattan, does he/she line up the bricklayers first or the investors? C’mon, folks, we have a bona fide CEO in charge of the Executive Branch of goverment and the vast majority of his Board of Directors (Congress) are on his side. Get’er done, but “Show me the money!”

    • sweetolbob

      Righteous:
      A 10% tax on all monies sent to Mexico by aliens to start. I can’t help if the money was earned or not. It is part of OUR economy and should not be supporting Mexico.

      • Righteous Truth

        So, how hard will it be for Congress to put a bill together and begin collecting a tax on these “remittances?” Can we get that done yesterday? C’mon already, get ‘er done!!

    • Michael Dennewitz

      The thing I love the most about MR Trump – well, two things. LOL One- he won’t take anybody’s shit, and Two – He won’t accept a salary! And I can think of one little mooseslime faggot who, together with the cliton cartel, got filthy rich like their boss, geo soros!! 😣😯

      • Righteous Truth

        Is this in response to my comment? How are your words connected to MY words? Is there any way that we can discuss this matter seriously without resorting to demeaning other human beings. I gather that you are probably in disagreement with my position – which is, in a nutshell, IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUILD SOMETHING (a wall or a skyscraper) have a good grasp on how the project will be funded. Is that such an unreasonable hurdle to expect from our government?
        I mean, if Congress goes ahead and approves Mr. Trump’s stated desire for improving the nation’s infrastructure (he has suggested $1,000,000,000,000), we would expect Congress to explain where the funding would be coming from, right? And, you would expect that Mr. Trump would NEVER sign such an authorization without knowing the funding source(s), right?

        • Michael Dennewitz

          Ummmm, I only made a comment… how did you get into the picture? 😣😕😯

          • Righteous Truth

It is not too much to ask that you comment respectfully too, is it?

        Yep , the obammys left office Multi Millionaires !! Wonder how that was possible ? I’m guessing they got a lot of it from monies Missing at the State Dept and other agencies .

  • sweetolbob

    The immigration laws of the United States were written and passed by a Sovereign Nation to protect itself from invasion.
    They were ignored by one party in order to create a new group of democRAT voters and ignored by the other party in order to provide a supply of cheap, easily replaced labor.
    Both parties are guilty of the mess we are now drowning in.
    Let’s get behind the man who promised to ENFORCE THE LAW.

    • John

      He was not really represented by the politicians when he was running for office so why should he represent what they want. Trump, do what you have to like running a business to make it successful. MAGA

    Watched Nancy Pelosi the other day on the wall and she was saying how much it was go to cost the American and what a good thing Sanctuary Cities were. Looked on the other page and it said how much money the SC were going to lose. My wife had the idea. Let us take the money that is not going to the sanctuary cities and use it to pay for the wall.

    • TPM

      That’s a GREAT idea. If we fall a bit short on funding, we could sell Nancy Pelosi’s body parts.

      • Juan TwoTree

    • cdansreau

      we should also increase the border patrol. If any laid off policeman wishes to transfer to the border patrol i suggest we pay relocation expenses and a special training package. perhaps we might want to build a wall around the sanctuary cities to isolate their crime wave.

  • MILES E DRAKE

    Time is clearly of the essence. It is now clear that the “popular vote victory” of the bribe-taking baby-killing bulldyke and whatever victories were won last year by the party of Marx, Mohammed and Mapplethorpe were due to fraudulent votes cast by mestizos, mongrels and missing links coaxed from the central american rain forests into U.S. voting booths. A communist revolution is now underway here,manned in large part by drug cartel soldiers and gang members from Mexico and as many koran- and Kalashnikov-toting refujihadis as the just-ousted traitor regime could pitchfork into the country. The goal is clearly the takedown of our republic and the collapse of our economy, followed by at best the enslavement and at worst the genocidal extermination of the native-born English-speaking population as an American Peoples Republic is established by paymaster and controller Soros and his would-be puppet ruler Obongo. The United States will cease to exist within a decade if it does not defend itself now.

    • Mathew Molk

      I agree there was an attempted NWO Marxist take over but on Nov 8th of last year they suffered a set back from which they will not recover in this century.

      Still, I am all for a new HUAC starting with a purge of communists in the collages and working our way through school boards and public schools. – No more anti-American, and homosexual indoctrination of our children.

  • OK, nobody has mentioned WHERE the money will come from….well; President Trump just signed on to a plan that excludes welfare payments to illegals if you saw it ? ….which amounts to about $ 113 BILLION per year….and the wall will cost….about $ 15 billion…make sense yet ?

    • John Somers

      THANK YOU THANK YOU, I saw the same thing yesterday and was wondering IF it was the truth.
      OH, there’s gonna be an awful lot of crying and gnashing of teeth going to happen, ESPECIALLY with the DemocRATS and the illegals are going to be pissed too.

      • Dee

        Let All the liberals go live in Mexico or the Middle East ! Heck Venezuela too , just for a year or two , then let’s see their attitudes when they come back . They’re acting like real As#¥olé& , and expect us to go down with them . Not in Our USA !

      • Mathew Molk

        And a big rush to get the hell out of dodge before you get caught and spend some time in our jail before you are thrown over the top of our brand new wall. .

    • anibanib

      $113 000 000 000 a year………..are you sure about that number or did you just invent it, BECAUSE……the official govn cost for each person per year…………..is………..$2100, whichmeans there are 54 million illegals, refugees, migrants…..call them what you will………in the ISA now……….thats a lot 54 million

      • John

        Are you sure that that 2100 is per year and not per month which would be 425 per week that includes all the benefits that they get which sounds more realistic. 2100 per year is only 40 per week.

        • anibanib

          I was a bit unclear there,I was actually refering to our refugees here is Sweden, they do cost about $2100 per person per year, which is for all they need, food, drink doctors medicine, transport and taxes etc etc ……………they do get a Place to live, nothing fancy, just basic, and water is free, electricity they pay for themselves……..metered EL……I checked your figures, about 12 million……….$9400 per person per year

          • John

            Thanks for the update. I thought you were referring to the USA

          • anibanib

            I am……. your illegals……….. about 12 million……….$9400 per person per year…….almost 5 times what we spend on refugees

          • oldobxguy

            Back in the 80’s there were a few totally honest men in Congress and when the discussion of how many illegals were in the U.S. they said based on verifiable data that the actual # was between 30-40 million. The majority, mostly Democrats and a few RINO Reps. used a politically beneficial number of 8-15 million. If you go back and check out which politicians voluntarily didn’t run for reelection back then you’ll get an idea who some of those “few totally honest men in Congress” were. They just couldn’t put up with the DC corruption of both parties.

    • David in MA

      and people say there is no Santa Claus………

    • John

      He has to sign another plan to get all those not working and collecting benefits to show up at a location in their area every morning and a few will be called out to get on the bus and do some work that day for their benefits. If not there they lose all benefits immediately.

    • Mathew Molk

      So there is is,,,,,End of story.

      The wall is a done deal and old news. Let’s talk about how we are going to get the Refugees back to where they came from.

    • alegalcitizen

      PLUS the WALL is a LEGALLY passed bill from 2006, signed, sealed, and delivered by the United States of America, better known as the Secure Fence Act.

        ……..so whats it to be…………I like the fence,its pretty

        • alegalcitizen

          I LIVE here, have you seen any of the videos where they just jacked up the fence and walked under it??? In many places along the Rio Grande Valley you could have NEITHER, as the Federal Govt. owns land as do lots of parks for the animals and birds. In Penitas, Texas there is a huge blimp with lots of communication things on board, we can SEE a long way into Mexico. Problem is Obama was TELLING the border patrol and ICE to release anyone not Mexican that came across the river, who were by the way turning themselves in and saying they were refugees from central America and afraid of being killed, so we put them on buses and sent them ALL over the U.S.A., read the article in the Monitor, McAllen, Texas, “EASING THE JOURNEY”. We need to put them on a plane, and fly them to Mexico City and tell them it’s their responsibility, they allowed and aided their way to our border!

    • NSB FL

    It wouldn’t surprise me to hear that the democrats got some looney federal judge to put a restraing order out to stop the wall, just like they did on the travel ban. I don’t know whether they can or not but i think they will try something about that stupid..

    • Ron C

      The democrats always use the courts to get their way, Trump should just thumb is nose at the courts like Obama did…

      • J.B.Jacobs

        I don’t know. I just read where the U.S. Appeals Court has denied the Justice Dept’s request to reinstate Trumps travel ban. I don’t know whether this is true or not, you can’t believe half what you read anymore. If it is they will probably try the same thing on the wall. The problem is not what he is doing, it’s the fact that he won and Hillary lost. The left is determined he is not going to be able to do anything, regardless of whether it’s the best thing for the American people, including their familys. I don’t understand it.

        • Ron C

          So true

  • anibanib

    Mexicans will be really really pleased, keep the hoards of whilte Obese smelly Yanks out

    • Ron C

      Now the Mexican’s will have to take care of their poor.

      • anibanib

        Just like the USA has to……..47 000 000 living in poverty, almost 50 million on food stamps, and about 100 million without a job who would like one,,,,,,,,,,so the true US unemployment figures are about 26%…..and a total govn debt of almost $66 TRILLION

  • Gregory Sarmas Sr.

    President Obama and a compliant Congress had approved funds to build the wall they never spent it and it was used for something else.So in theory this should be a no brainer?As Im writing this the Appeals Court has denied the Presidents Executive Order of Immigration and I believe he will ignore the court and move forward any ways .Works for me and my family.Go Trump!!!

    • Dee

      I was hoping the same thing !

    • John

      Put those judges away also

  • SouthernPatriot

    That is what Trump does….built it better, build it faster, and build it under budget! With his administration inspectors in every department and cabinet office, eliminating redundancy, and useless divisions and expenses, he is already reducing the cost of government. More to come. Trump is a workaholic and working continually for us–the American people, while the leftists, anarchists, and demented Democrats cry, scream, and violently express their opposition and Trump stays focuses on getting things done!

    • Dee

      I am Soo impressed with Trump! This guy is unlike Anyone to ever hold office . He has done More Work since he’s been in office than obummer did in his first ” four years ” !
      Gotta Love Him !

    • John

      Bus all those on government benefits and able to work, which is everyone for their is paper work they can do, taken down to the border to work on the wall. The weather is nice so they only need tents and sleeping bags.

    • Mathew Molk

      That’s exactly what I said,,,,but I used different words. – And as CIC he can also use military engineers any other GIs with out even using a pen. One phone call and within 12 hours a triple row concertina wire fence would start to appear. We could pick it up as the permanent wall is completed. —- or leave it there and make the space between it and the wall a free fire zone.

  • Ron C

    All the people that say it can’t be done are the same people that put us 20 trillion in debt, with nothing to show for it. But the propaganda news media won’t bring that up…?

    • anibanib

      67 trillion dollars in total govn debt

    • Dee

      Yes and obammy campaigned on how irresponsible to grow the debt on the backs of our children was , then Never mentioned it again , not in 2012 or while campaigning for Hitlery, hmmm wonder why that is , and wonder why the snowflakes aren’t outraged at the Major Debt he added .

  • zrevtom

    How many refugees came into our country since Obama was President. Where did they go?
    Where are they now? how many small towns where they were forcibly placed without telling the town they were coming? Who was supporting these people, not the Federal government but the small towns. they
    had to house them, educate them, employ them, treat their diseases (the one we conquered years ago
    but are coming back with these refugees. Their numbers are increasing, some towns are now governed
    by Muslims because they are in the majority, Sharia law is in place, The big cities do not see these
    refugees, Obama made sure to place them in small towns all over our country so now it is up to us
    the Citizens of the United States to let the Trump admin know where they are if they are committing
    crimes, the Democrats will not tell for they wish to weaken our country even more so they stay
    quiet like a thief in the night and put our country at risk. The police cannot do it alone, we must
    help, if these refugees want to become Americans and embrace OUR LAWS, OUR LANGUAGE
    Love our FLAG, we welcome you, if not GO HOME

    • Righteous Truth

      I hear we even have Muslims serving in Congress. Have you heard that?

      • anibanib

        No……….what do they look like………are they dangerous

        • Righteous Truth

          Dangerous? Of course they are dangerous. What’s even scarier is they look (pretty much) like Americans!! AND, Keith Ellison (5th District MN) goes by the name Keith Ellison. AND, he’s in the running for DNC Chair! Scary times!!

      • Dee

        The one idiot the dnc is promoting is in the senate and I’m Sure obammy hired Many of the Sunnis he brought in .Trump Must Clean House !!

        • Righteous Truth

          Just to keep the record straight: Keith Ellison is in the House of Representatives. He was born in Detroit, Michigan. He earned his JD from the University of Minnesota. He is a Sunni. As far as I know, he was not “brought in” by Obama, but if you, Dee, have credible sources that refute my understanding, please pass them along. He did get sworn in with his hand on the Qur’an.

    • Diana Sloan

      I cannot believe the huge number of Muslim “refugees” that are in the Denver area..swarms have surfaced since President Trump’s temporary ban…It even makes me wonder about the Mayor of Denver who ignored the fact a security guard at Union Station in Denver was murdered by a Muslim shouting allah akbar crap last week but appeared on TV in the sanctuary city of Boulder hugging the Muslim protesters…this is s a mess …I cannot imagine what would be going on if Hillary had won!

      • Dee

        Omg what a Scary thought that is . Obammy carefully placed these bums and now Our Trump must weed them all out !

    • Dee

      And we have to ask , why did obammy dump these people in red states ? I say anymore that come in All go to blue states !

  • Theresa Petruzzi

    Guess many Americans are not concerned about saving the lives of their children and families. We will be attack again. This is what the president wants to avoid. What is wrong with wanting to keep our country safe. All you paid protesters/ rioters will feel differently about all this once you have your own children. Just try this in any other country. You will be put in jail or even worse. Have you lost your minds?

    • anibanib

      You have been attacked Before…….when????????

      • Laddyboy

        World Trade Center, Boston, California, Oklahoma, Florida. I do not know how many of the little attacks due to the cover-ups by the DemocRATs and the PRESSTITUTES.

        • anibanib

          WOWWIE………..so how many, a bit over 3000………and remember 100s in the WTC were not Americans, so they dont Count…….OK,lets say 3000 since 2001……………just over 15 years………during WW2, 63000 Londoners were killed, over 300000 were injured in 6 weeks in 1940

          • Laddyboy

            As the DemocRATs are wanten to say: “Let’s do it for the children!”, “If only one life is saved, it is worth it.”

        • Dee

          Not to mention all those arrested for plotting terrorist attacks , whom the deceiver in chief obammy didn’t tell us about .

    • Arizona Don

      Short answer yes the progressive communistic so called democrats have lost their minds!

      • anibanib

        You have communistic people in the USA, what do they look like…….communists

      • AL

        Get the spelling RIGHT it is demoKKKrats They are out to ENSLAVE EVERYONE

  • junkmailbin

    how fast can we build the wall?? well that depends on when we start.
    Sut up and put it up.
    Start putting a fee on all moneys transferred to mexico, confiscate all funds from illegal alines, and confiscate the assets of businesses employing illegal aliens

    • anibanib

      What happens when you come tothe River Grande that seperates both countries for about 800 miles………….build a wall in the middle

      • Laddyboy

        With the knowledge of the Americans, IT CAN BE DONE. However, it would be easier to put the wall on our side of the border.

        • anibanib

          You could man eating reptiles swimming there……….thats an idea I had last week

  • Eddie

    Here is my biggest problem with illegals. The other day I was stopped for a school bus and as I watched the kids get off the buss I noticed something that woke me up to the gist of the problem with my taxes. In my county half of the county’s budget is devoted to education. Now back to what I saw get off the school bus…As I sat there waiting I counted the kids getting off the bus…there were ten kids…..9 of those ten kids were mexican, and one white kid. And that was just one bus from one school. In my county there are 170 public schools. Here are some sobering facts about the national illegal problem….Last year over 50 billion was remitted to the home country of the illegals. That’s 50 billion that left our economy never to be returned. That still cost the American taxpayer 113 billion of funds to support them. This is all done for 12 million illegals. They sure aren’t putting that much money into our economy. The American government is so blatantly stupid that they are in fact paying criminals for their crimes. Illegal means just that I L L E G A L ! I don’t have any kids and it’s bad enough I have to pay for American kids schooling, but now add insult to injury I am forced to pay for illegal kids schooling. It’s past time for the American people to rise and up and put a stop to this financial insanity !

    • anibanib

      $113 000 000 000 for only 12 million humans…..now thats expensive……about $9400 per person…………..where do they live in hotels

    • lha

      On the border,lines of cars cross every day bringing kids across the border to School,where they are taught in Spanish and free education is from Preschool through College. I was surprised when I learned that there were “grants” for Mexican “Students”,mostly from OUR Schools. No wonder OUR kids get a second rate education!!

    • John

      The illegals was all done with the demos in office so they get more votes which failed them. Have the demos put half of their salary and all of their petty cash back into the government towards the wall and when a politician is caught breaking the law they should lose their job on the spot and put in jail immediately with no parole. As for the cost of their trial if they were caught red handed then there should be no trial.

    • Mathew Molk

      You must be from Kalifonication….I have heard the same thing from others and I don’t especially approve of it at all.,,,,But just to put things in perspective, Just being a Mexican, or other Latino doesn’t mean you are a wetback and this is changing by the day. A lot if them are getting out while the getting is good and I will be more then glad to plant a #12 Red Wing right in their keester as they go, but on the other hand I have nothing what so ever against American Citizens that are of Hispanic background and I can’t complain about legal green card holders as much as I’d like to.

  • TPM

    Funds to build the wall were approved years ago. What the hell happened to them?
    Were they reallocated to bring refugees / potential terrorists to America?
    Were they used to fund entitlements for illegals (a.k.a. undocumented democrats) ?
    Build the wall and enforce our Immigration Laws.

    • John

      No the funds were probably used to make the politicians have nice vacations, etc

    • Mathew Molk

      Likely, Clinton stole them and dived it up between lobbyists and the RINO/Democrat establishment elitists.

    • Mr Rollo

      Obama wants to see the destruction of America. That’s why the wall has not been built. Obozo HATES America.

  • Oldawg70

    Defund every university/business/entity whose executives/employees receive incomes greater than the President Of The United States…build several walls!!! Go Trump!

    • anibanib

      Build one between the USA and Canada, they dont like you anyway

      • Oldawg70

        Don’t like them either…Queer Logic has infected their political system also!!!

    • John

      For what they pay their sport coaches over a million, we would have a lot of money saved

      • Oldawg70

        And…most if not all these so called educational facilities have become toilet bowls for liberal indoctrination!

  • David in MA

    Where this is a national security issue why can’t the military construction units and corp of engineers be used along with private contractors? They all could use the practice and they are being paid anyhow.

    • anibanib

      Thats a good idea, saves having to ask the Chinese for some more money

  • george briar

    Build the wall and throw Pelosi, the Obama’s, dirty harry, and the Clinton’s over it. and offer free bus fair to all the libs that want to leave, one way of course.

  • Mary Muennig

    Re: “The Wall May Go Up Faster Than Anyone Thought” : Please; I appreciate that.

  • Ken says

    Anyone with a half a brain knows it is not a brain teaser to build a wall that will stop anyone. The only reason it was a problem when the legislation was passed a decade ago is that all the contractors bidding the work were administration “friends” and accustomed to no competition, built in cost over runs, no budget and adequate pocket stuffing. Now watch to see how a wall is built. All it takes is a REAL Leader – a Leader with experience – sure feels good to have a POTUS again – it’s been 28 years.

  • Theresa Petruzzi

    Boston, San Bernadino, Orlando, NYguns, bombs either way it’s an attack on Americans

  • Mathew Molk

    Having been a Combat Engineer in Vietnam a few years back and in the trades all my life, 2 years is MORE then enough time to “get ‘er done”

    For starters the commander-in-chief can order the Army and Marine engineers, and Navy Seabees and Air Force Red Horse to get to the border and get hot. No prob there at all and all are already trained in field fortifications and obstacles. – (I think the border patrol is already making things a lot more unpleasant for the criminal crosses)

    Then the Prez is a highly experienced construction guy himself (remember the skating rink?) . This is not going to be a typical government boondoggle. When the civilian contracts are let they will come with some bone crushing penalty clauses. It WILL come in on time and on target or better. I can see him putting in a bonus for early completions, too.

    And just what are the commie-crats and RINOs going to do to stop it? It has become painfully obvious that to oppose the President keeping a campaign promise is political suicide. last November 8th it also became obvious the part of the country that controls the the biggest part of the congress and even state legislators is mad as hell and is not going to put up with it anymore.

    And it’s obvious that the sanctuary cities are on their way out too. A lot of law abiding Latinos have had it for wearing the bad rap generated by the illegals and the backlash is building already, and just wait ’till the cuts of federal money and arrests for harboring cut in ….If I was a wetback I think I’d get out of Dodge before ICE tracks me down and I have to spend some hard time before getting tossed over the brand new wall.

    • John

      As for the criminals that are here illegally, why do we send them back and then they return over and over again, why don’t we just treat them like a citizen criminal. Lets build a Guatmo in the Arizona desert and put them there with bread and water like they would get in Mexico until their execution.

      • bttrap

  • 2 parrots and a dog

    Thank you President Trump.

  • denniscerasoli

    One thing is certain,Trump got elected on promises made in which he already is in the process of fulfilling.If the Republican controlled House and Senate fail Trump then they will have failed the will of the people that gave them the three branches of government and they will pay the price comes the next election.Trump really can’t lose and he will be able to feel good about himself by saying….I tried but they obstructed me and he will go about his business satisfied.Those career politicians who oppose him will have to look for another job.

    • anibanib

      Trump did not get the majority of the American voters——what was it, about 3 million less than Hillary………..but the Electoral College, and antiquated system of a few select rich men who sit and decide…………it worked in the late 1780s,when the USA was 96% slaves………….IT SHOULDNT work today

      • John

        If you looked at why we have the Electoral College being that the majority of the voters are in large cities then the voters in small cities would not be represented. LOOK up the facts

        • anibanib

          I have looked up the facts and that is what it is…….antiquated, like several parts of the constitution 230 yrs old………it worked then for 5 million people of which 96% were slaves……….and guns were “muskets” with blackpowder, lucky to get off shots a minute………..it is so laughable

          • bttrap

            those muskets and black powder kick the brits out, not laughable

          • anibanib

            ……….and almost wiped out the true inhabitants of the N Americam continent,………….and if it hadnt been for the Swedes, you would still be using muskets and blackpowder

          • bttrap

            what did the swedes have to do with this surely not ww2

          • anibanib

            A guy called Alfred Nobel…………google………År 1863 återvände fadern och Alfred till Sverige, där Alfred började studera sprängämnen i synnerhet nitroglycerin. Experimenten ägde rum i försöksfabriken Heleneborg i Stockholm. 1864 skedde en explosion vid Heleneborg vid sprängolje- och nitroglycerinberedning. Brodern Emil Nobel, som var 21 år, och alla andra närvarande omkom.[6][7] Nobel hade mött upptäckaren av nitroglycerin, Ascanio Sobrero, under sin tid i Paris och insåg att dess kraft måste tämjas för att kunna vara användbar. Alfred Nobel uppfann bland annat:
            Dynamit 1866, som han fick patent på 1867
            Spränggummi (bomullskrut upplöst i svartkrut), nästan riskfritt vid transport och hantering
            Spränggelatin 1875
            Ballistit, nobelkrut 1887 (ett röksvagt krut bestående av nitrocellulosa och nitroglycerin i lika delar)

            I read the https and found it very interesting thank you for the knowledge

      • Barney Biggs

        When you look at the US voters map it is real interesting the county by county breakdown.

        With the majority of the voters in the big cities and where the illegals and other refugees etc. live and the counties they live in the facts become even more interesting.

        Take LA and SF out of the picture and the whole vote count changes.

        I could not care less but interesting

        • anibanib

          But surely,if people take time to vote…………and as usual only about 50% are interested enough………then that vote should be used not a few rich guys chatting together having a a few drinks………..our last election here in Sweden 86% took the time to vote……….and not one fraudulent vote

          • Barney Biggs

            Actually it is not. The electoral college is not just a bunch of rich guys voting
            It is based on the population of the State and how the State voted. Each State has a defined number of votes based on it population.
            If NY voted GOP and they have 10 electoral votes then those votes are supposed to go to the GOP and if Texas voted DEM with 8 votes those votes go to the DEM .
            I was reading how several electoral college voters did not like how their State voted but had to go along with it regardless of their personal opinion. Also many of the voters are not rich.

            As for fraud as in my country those in power buy the vote through opening up the doors to refugees etc. This has been happening here for a long time.
            Legally fraud no but odorous nevertheless. A good friend of mine as voted Liberal every time as he says they let him into the country.

      • denniscerasoli

        Trump won by an electoral landslide as set fourth by the founding fathers.Don’t give me the popular stuff and don’t say there was no fraud.Illegals in California are allowed to get a drivers permit which is all they need to vote and without California Trump wins the popular vote not that it matters.And just to add,those voters couldn’t even name the Vice President or even the Mayor’s of where they live.I don’t mean to be nasty but it needs to be said since you mentioned it.For anyone to say that there is no voter fraud in California is an insult to the intelligence of a 5 year old,of course there is voter fraud what is wrong with you.

        • anibanib

          There you go, your system is easily open to fraud……some were even saying that dead people were voting……….here when we are born we all get a very unique 12 digit personal number whic follows you until Death,its used everywhere for Everything………..dont worry we also use one or two or sometimes….3 code Words or numbers,and once a person has used his or hers 12 digit personal number in voting,thats it, the computer logs it in and never ever agin can that nr be used again, but dont you guys also have SS numbers

          • denniscerasoli

            I go way back anibanid to JFK and Nixon and there was fraud in that election.This isn’t new there were dead people voting then.

          • anibanib

            Its OK,if you are happy with a DEAD SURE system do continue

          • denniscerasoli

            I have a son in law who is Mexican and from Mexico but he is a legal resident and he told me that they sell SS numbers on the street corner to people sneaking across the borders,lol.

            Stupid things like that can only happen in the USA

          • Norman

            Yes! PRESIDENT Trump was elected to stop stupid things like that. Our new Attorney General will use the Department of Justice to fight crime and corruption.

          • denniscerasoli

            Freedom allows this stuff to happen but there comes a point when you have to do something about it and when someone does they call him a dictator.

          • anibanib

            Then according to your comment, its OK to sell SS numbers to illegals………..THAT is not freedom

          • denniscerasoli

            anibanid,can you read? I don’t mean words because anyone can do that.By reading i mean understanding the context.Did i say it was OK? Didn’t i say that something needs to be done about it? How did you get i’m OK with it?

          • anibanib

            You said……………””Freedom allows this stuff to happen””…….ALLOWS is the main Word of action……..and you said it………there now, go to the back of the class sit in the corner, put on that White Point hat and stop snivveling

          • denniscerasoli

            Freedom allows it to happen because there is no one looking over a persons shoulder and when they come here they know it.Freedom doesn’t mean you have a right to do it.Freedom allows us to walk into a bank but freedom doesn’t mean you can rob it.

          • Norman

            Yes, our Presidential election system is easily open to fraud because we don’t have a strong voter ID system.

            We CONSERVATIVES have been trying to get voter ID laws in the USA for decades but RADICALS (i.e. demonicRATs) have been opposed to voter ID because it would interfere with their vote fraud schemes such as the recent scheme that made it appear that “hilLIARy won the popular vote” when 3 million fraudulent votes were counted with the legitimate votes.

            Honest people favor to a strong voter ID system. DemonicRATs oppose any sort of voter ID system.

        • Marilyn

          Most of the popular votes were from California. Makes sense? Trump won because MOST of the country voted for him and did not want a corrupt Government again.

          • denniscerasoli

            Sure.

      • Norman

        The USA was never 96% slaves, idiot.

        For someone who hates the USA so much you certainly are concerned with how much our new PRESIDENT is doing to secure the USA from invaders and to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

  • glorybe2

    Does it dawn on anyone that Canada is bringing in large numbers of Muslim immigrants and that vast sections of the Canadian border can simply be walked across at will. Obviously a wall between us and Canada would be silly and super expensive just as a wall between us and Mexico would accomplish nothing other than creating a huge expense for US tax payers.

    • Barney Biggs

      Sure but any wall is only as good as the measures supporting it. I have just googled and found approx 65 countries with security walls. With electronic and other supportive measures it could work but you also have to have controls on visas etc.
      You are right putting a wall over the Rockies would be interesting. A bunch of illegals are crossing in Manitoba even in the winter.
      O what fun.

    If walls don’t work, why did Obama heighten the wall around the White House?

    Why does the Vatican have a wall around it?

    Why does Mexico have one on it’s southern border?

    Why did China build the Great Wall?

    Why do prisons have walls?

    • John

      Why is Obama building a wall with our money around a house he is renting? What is he afraid of? His muslims?

  • Barney Biggs

    I was listening to a program here in Canada yesterday and they were saying there are 22 countries with security walls to keep their countries safe.

    I enjoy looking at the wall around the White House.

    They also went on to say that Obama is building a wall around his new estate for security and also the guys who head many of the large firms and who are complaining about the Wall themselves have walls around their estates. One is currently building a wall around his estate in Hawaii.

    Walls go back to Ancient China and come in many forms bricks and mortar, wire, razor wire, electronic etc.
    Some keep people in and others to keep people out.

    Just interesting

    • anibanib

      22 countries……any link

      • Barney Biggs

        Actually no they did not provide one but gives me something to research.
        This wall business is nothing new and proposed way back but only partially acted on.
        We do not have a wall around my country

      • Barney Biggs

        I just googled it and a paper in the UK says there are 65 countries with walls and many more going up. There were a number of sites on this subject from around the world. If you google it you can see as they name the actual countries.

        Just interesting. I assume you really want to know and not just dug in on a political position?

        • anibanib

          Interesting,but a fence is a fence not a wall……..even walls can be scaled or a small wooden ladder, chain fences are a doddle. wire cutters, clip clip clip and they have a hole, the next guard in his Dacia comes in 30 minutes

          • Barney Biggs

            sorry to disagree electronic walls can and are very effective. It all depends on the support and measures behind the wall. Walls and dogs, walls and beams whether bricks and mortar or not.

            Perhaps, but from what I have seen in Hungary, a chain link fence is useless, the migrants just wait for the cars to pass by, cut a hole and in the go

          • Barney Biggs

            I agree but it depends on what is awaiting them on the other side. The Yanks have a lot of resources nobody else has if they decide to use them. In the last several decades they really made no effort to stop them. I have spent time down there and watched how little effort was made. When Obama prosecuted several border guards for doing their duty that ended any real attempt to stop the traffic.

            If they decide to really stop and put the resources necessary to do it. It will stop in a hurry.

            The Yanks are not like us.

          • anibanib

            But all this talk is about a pitti Little part of the total US border to the outside World, which is 1000s of miles, right along the western seaboard, the Canada border, and the Atlantic coast…………desperate people make desperate moves………and they will…….

          • Barney Biggs

            We really do not know how long the wall will be or really where. There are a few areas of the southern border where the illegals seem to come in a lot more.
            I have been there and seen it up close and personal and while I am not American I have seen the impact of the illegals and in some areas it is out of control.
            A few refugees is one thing but the hundreds of thousands in certain areas is mind boggling. Not sure any system can withstand it. I am glad it is not my problem to try and solve.

          • anibanib

            An actual wall, or fence or chainlink fence covers less than half, the rest is a water barrier, the Le Grande, and most of those who get as far as the border, wont let water stop them, they can all swim across

          • Barney Biggs

            True another factor is that until now they knew that once across they were relatively home free and apart from a couple of areas they had nothing to fear.
            Joe Arpaio and a couple of others were the only ones going after them as Obama and the DOJ gave them a free ride. If that were to change and they were not given a free ride once across they might not be so eager to cross. It is a thorny issue as some who have been in the US for some time have good jobs, businesses and productive while a great many others have been milking the system. O ME O MY WHATEVER SHALL WE DO?

          • anibanib

            As you say many have jobs and contribute to the USA, perform a job pay taxes and buy goods………..but the numbers quoted 11 million,its quite mind boggling, how can it happen or be allowed to happen……on this page someone quoted each illegal COSTs $30000……….do they live in hotels…….like I have said Before Sweden pays each family member about $2100 a year to cover everything including taxes……..and the total numbers of refugees is reducing all the time, coming from warm sunny climates to Sweden IS A SHOCK for many,last year about 45000 left to return home or further South…….remember we are between 55 and 68 degs North……….-40C is not uncommon

          • Barney Biggs

            What I suspect in that figure is that in the US there are so many more of them and the it probably includes, free education, free medical (ER), food stamps and on and on. Also consider that Arizona, Cal. New Mex and some others States are very very hot most of the year and not much different than northern Mex.
            I would not doubt that 11 million is light. With a population of over 330 million they can absorb a large number but with their debts both State debt and national debt things are not going to get any better unless something is done which is going to hurt.
            I have sat and watched large groups of mostly illegals (they tell me) on street corners block after block in Az. waiting for somebody to stop and give them a days work. They are or were the major work force in landscaping, fruit picking, manual labor etc. for many home owners and businesses in those States.
            Another issue is that Mex. is a conduit country for illegals from all over South America and in fact many from all over the world are using Mex. to enter the US.
            It is not just the Mexican people who are crossing.
            Also important is that many who really do not want to live in the US come across to have their babies get them registered in hospitals etc. as US citizens then are free. Stop that and a lot of the issues is resolved but of course that will never happen.

          • anibanib

            Babies become US Citizens, just like that………well it can onlyhappen in the United States of America…….USA…………….A.K.A……United Stupid Ass wholes

          • Barney Biggs

            If you are born in the US you are a US citizen. We have people here who were born in the US as their parents were working there temporarily. These people have never lived there, never gone to school there never worked there but still are US citizens and in some cases the US tax people are coming after them to pay their income tax to the US gov. The US is about the only country in the world that taxes your world wide income regardless of where it is earned as long as you are a US citizen.
            Stupid correct but that is their law.

          • anibanib

            Thats true about double taxation……..work in Sweden pay taxes here AND in the USA

          • Barney Biggs

            We have a tax agreement with the US whereby if you pay in one country generally you are exempt from paying in the other.
            This does not apply to everything but most things.
            I guess my point was that many of these people who were only born in the US did not even know they had to pay taxes to the US as they had never worked there nor lived there. In some cases they are also getting hit with major penalties.
            Should they not pay then they are also subject to being barred from the US.

  • Mike

    the wall is pointless. it will not prevent illegal immigration. most illegal immigrants do not walk across the border. they overstay visas, drug cartels have tunnels, use vehicles etc. a wall will only be an expensive prop. it will stop no one and in most parts cannot even be on the border but will have to be several miles in land due to the Rio Grande river. plus what about the property rights of those who own land on the border?

    • anibanib

  • RAISE THE WALL Y’ALL RAISE THE WALL.

    SUPER BOWL HALF TIME BOYCOTT.

    Americans love football. It is the American sport. It teaches maneuvers, strategy, tactics and most of all team work. One of the best times to strike the USA is at Christmas or the Super bowl.

    This family sport brings us together including many reluctant moms for a most exciting event. Sadly thanks to the divide and conquer people we Red blooded Americans (blue before it hits oxygen) have been punished for our love of country by the NFL and it’s president Putty with an anti American gesture. Starring Colon Capon Neck. It is sad to see a quarterback take a knee for communism during the flag ceremony and the SSB. When Tim Tebow took a knee for Jesus the media was outraged and mocked him as if he was Jesus. The League took a gamble and encouraged Kapernik to continue to insult our nation. I personally know a few guys who refused to watch football this season. I myself will not watch a 49er game and possibly the Miami Dolphins who pulled the same crap. There is an old Italian saying, You never poop where you eat. Dogs don’t do it. Mine is from a business standpoint. You don’t insult your customers.

    Many a dad watching this great game played by two great teams is bonding with his kids Sunday. He does not want to be embarrassed by a porn show ala Janet Jackson the flapper or a political statement by the communist party. So if you were outraged by the Kapernik stunt and the disrespect of our SSB and the flag that drapes the coffins of our fathers, sons and daughters but chose to live with the game. I understand. I too sacrificed principle. Sunday is my day of atonement. I am going to watch the game but at halftime I am shutting off my TV for 30 minutes.

    That is how long my message is to Roger stop insulting my country. Have a great super bowl guys and think about a Korean war vet I saw at the bowling alley this week. He was half paralyzed with a bad stroke and he was dragging his bowling bag up two steps which took forever. I thought he was going to fall down and I knew he wanted no help. He was still fighting from 1950 to stay an American. So if you remember one Korean Vet on the Lord’s day turn off the half time show for old glory. God and Country forever. GO Trump!

    I’ve watched in California since 1969. From just a handful of migrant/illegals then, they have taken over completely 3 of the biggest cities in San Diego. More city’s will fall as they continue to reproduce.They laugh at us while taking our jobs, housing , water, freeways, and destroying our culture.

  • Morton99

    The wall will NOT go up for a very simple reason. Congress will not fund it. It is an absurd election promise that will do absolutely NOTHING to prevent determined illegal immigrants from using a ladder to climb over it, or tunneling beneath it – or simply buying a discount tourist flight and not leaving.

  • Trump’s team is brilliant and building the Border Wall is the smartest and greatest investment ever made by the USA government.!!! Forget repayment by Mexico and ignore a tax. Besides the carnage from drug pouring in, look at these costs.
    The 2011 Martin & Ruark “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on US Taxpayers” “estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 Billion; nearly $29 Billion at the federal level and $84 Billion at the state and local level”.
    Today’s and future costs are significantly greater. The $113 Billion did not include the cost of humans and illicit drugs trafficking, lost citizen’s wages, the society’s drug users and crime victims nor positive benefit factors as less crime from repeat deported criminals, safer streets and communities.
    The recent MIT and the anti-Trump Washington Post’s fact checker estimated the wall cost could be as high as $25 to $41 Billion for the entire border length.
    Reducing the annual costs by 10%, the worse-case Wall Cost would be repaid within 2 to 4 years !!!
    When did any government (or any financial adviser) make an investment with a 25% to 50% return within the first year followed by that annuity for life?
    It would be just a bonus if Mexico made any repayment

    • anibanib

      …………………””the illegals about 11mn cost the USA $113 billion a
      year……about $9000 each illegal per year”””……………do you really Believe these LIES……..and if you do, then you are one of the manymany GULLIBLE…..brainwashed Yanks

      • Did you read The 2011 Martin & Ruark “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on US Taxpayers” that I cited? Did you do a Google search? The real cost is about $30,000 per year. but the old data sufficed to make my point.
        There is a huge difference between intellectually honest opinions after in depth study of reputable facts and your mouthing off from what you may have heard from unlearned peers in a suto intellects conversation.

        • anibanib

          I onlywrite a comment after reading previous comments, then checking US gov sites,whether my $9000 or your $30000 per person is correct,that is beside the Point……….but then i reflect onthe Swedish refugee COSTs, which are $2100 per person per year……..and almost the whole sum returns to the Swedish economy in the form of goods etc etc etc bought, and taxes that the refugees pay……….so I say,the figure you mentioned……………..$30000 is used to really piss of White Yanks

    Finally a man of his word! Pres. TRUMP is just beginning! Wait til his first year is done! Unlike his weak kneed muslim predecessor barack the Inept, P.T. is making good on all his promises to PROTECT AMERICANS!

    Just to make things clear for those liberals still suckling on obama’s shirt tails, if you don’t like the direction America is going under President Trump’s hand, feel free to hop across the Mexican border and find a home there with your compadres! Perhaps you can become a Drug Mule and bring drugs into the U.S. by swallowing water balloons filled with heroin? Hey, but you’d not have to “live in” America any more! Isn’t that what you wanted you worthless turncoats?

        You obviously DO NOT KNOW WHAT A GOOD LEADER OR BOSS DOES. He acquires leaders under him with acute expertise in their positions so they may inform the leader of the wisest choices availsble.

          LOL! And you think that Trump fits that job description ? What planet are you from ? A pussy groper, twice divorced, changing room peeper, 4,000 law suits, 7 bankruptcies.

            And you are a perfect gentleman, never cusses, never talks nasty abt women with your buddies, never groped a girl in your life, etc.?

            P.T. isn’t perfect. He has made mistakes, but this is one job he plans to do right. Wake up Fool. He IS DOING JUST THAT ALREADY. He has accomplished more in the few weeks he’s been in office than most other Presidents — especially barack the inept charlatan. Whereas barack’s actions were to hurt our Nation (which he did manage to do but P.T. is repealing and defunding all barack’s illegal legislation), President Trump loves this country and will do anything in his power to make her strong again. P.T. is already doing a helluva job and more Americans support him than don’t.

            Dude, NO ONE CARES ABT HIS MISSTEPS IN LIFE — WE ARE GLAD HE IS NOT PROFESSING HE IS PERFECT LIKE MANY PEOPLE, BUT HE MAKES MISTAKES AND ADMITS THAT. HE’S NOT A LYING MANIPULATING POLITICIAN, BUT AN AMERICAN WHO WANTS HIS COUNTRY STRONG FINANCIALLY, SPIRITUALLY, AND MILITARILY AND IS WILLING TO DO WHAT IT TAKES to make that happen.
            So stop trying to tear Trump down. AMERICANS JUST DON’T GIVE A DAMN SCARLETT!

            I have never groped a woman. I have never cheated an employee or contractor. I have never committed a fraud and sold fake education. I have never been divorced, let alone twice. I have never committed adultery. I do not boast and lie. I have self confidence. But most of all, I seel real expertise before opening my mouth and looking totally stupid. No, I have absolutely no faith in this Presidential sham.

          • GuardianFlame

            I will take you at your word but know that I do not know you and you could be lying to me. Everyone has a vice. You just didn’t mention yours. No one is that perfect…no one.

            Think of this: if you had been born in Trump’s family and had his keen drive to expand his knowledge base (in all realms of life), and made HUGE amounts of money at a very young age, how would you conduct your life when you could have anything or anyone you wanted?

            MONEY IS POWER; POWER TENDS TO CORRUPT – just look at George Soros, the billionnaire who turned his own immediate family in to Hitler’s SS Troops for a pocketful of coins. Money corrupts at any age…

            But at the same time, do you believe that a Soul could change and seek a better life or goal? I don’t know if President Trump is doing that, but when I “read” him, I get positive feelings — unlike the negative evil feelings I got from barack.

            FYI: I love God/Christ, He is constantly with me and I have survived many events that I shouldn’t have – someone or something always made sure I was protected. TMI.

            The night Barack gave his Inaugural Address on TV, I became very nauseated to the point of throwing up when I heard his voice. So I turned off the TV – the nausea went away. I then turned the TV back on to his speech and the nausea flooded.back – turned off the TV again, no nausea! I tried listening once more and the same thing happened. I did not turn the TV back on to his speech. Later that month I went to a Seminar on Spiritualism and discussed what happened to me when hearing barack’s voice. They told me I was an “Emotive” or “Sensitive” because I could feel the good or bad in people (even through TV). I was channeling barack’s life force and it was evil, not good. Several of the speakers there had channeled the same thing from him.

            I should have realized what was happening because at my job at a High End Luxury car Dealership, all potential hires paperwork/themselves visited my desk before hiring. I never missed knowing (NOT guessing, but “knowing”) who was a potential good hire or a bad risk. The one time the Parts Director decided to hire someone I said was a risk, his department lost thousands of dollars from the cash register as well as many high end parts went missing. It took the Director a week to come and apologize for not believing me. He promised to accept my opinion from that day forward – and he did!

            I needed to give you some history “why” I feel strongly about President Trump’s actions for America. I only channeled “Positive” feelings when I watched him speak. Yes, he is a lousy speaker, but his intentions are good — unlike obama’s that were/are basically evil.

            There is no comparison between the two men. Trump loves America. Barack hates America – I’ve done extreme research on barack after being nauseated by him…he HATED AMERICA WHEN HE TOOK OFFICE. NOW HE JUST THINKS AMERICANS ARE A BUNCH OF FOOLS BECAUSE THEY COULDN’T SEE WHAT HE WAS DOING TO THEM…that’s the truth.

            You may not feel comfortable with President Trump (because he previously screwed up and was immoral as a young man), but as an older man, with a young 10 year old son and an intelligent beautiful wife, perhaps he wants to be a better person than he was?? If you are a believer in 2nd chances, perhaps you should give him one. His heart is in the right place for our Nation. It’s those people – like Georgy Soros the billionnaire Globalist – who DO NOT want America strong again, who are trying to discredit P.T. and cause chaos in our Country.

            Believe me, I’ve done my homework!

          • Morton99

            Thank you for your polite, even though it was a somewhat impassioned – response. I too tend to use my instincts a lot – but sometimes they can be wrong. In the case of DJT, I have lived in NYC for 40 years and have actually met him twice. In his case I have never altered my views. From when he idolized a monster named Roy Cohn, to the present day his brash conceited vulgarity was nauseous. But then I do not pick my doctor or lawyer based upon personal feelings, but by analysing their successes. And after a great deal of careful research which I did when he began his campaign – I concluded that he was very good at one thing only – marketing himself. But beneath that flamboyant facade was a trail of disasters from his casino bankruptcies to the present day. There are few US banks who would even lend him money which is why he started to do business deals with very shady multi nationals. But you are entitled to you opinion and I do hope that he does not completely destroy your trust in your own instincts.

          • GuardianFlame

            Thank you for your info. I, too, like to know both sides and will consider what you’ve said. I’m sure there are very few men who have had that much success that they didn’t misbehave quite frequently along the way.

            I am praying my “gut” didn’t tell me wrong. It hasn’t so far, but we’ll see. Many prayers that God guides President Trump’s heart and hand. It’s up to God now…

  • Dan

    The immigrants of today are not like those in the past when our nation was growing. Those of years gone by did not get federal assistance for everything they wanted. They did not get food stamps and sanctuary cities.They had to work for what they wanted and learn the language. They adapted to our countries moral and social norms. Now they want us to adapt to their perverted sense of living. Maybe all the liberals could move into California, Oregon and Washington and take the remainder of liberals with them along with the muslim lawbreakers and run their own country.

  • Fuzzface

    What a waste of taxpayers money. What happened to reigning in the budget. Create jobs. More Border Patrol agents and increased surveillance with lights, cameras and tunnel detectors is the way to go. This wall will fail and we, the taxpayers, will end up paying for this stupid idea.

          Our cost for the illegal’s being in America for one year far out weighs the entire cost of the wall.

Relax Fuzzy, lay back in your seat on The Trump Train and enjoy the ride.

          • Fuzzface

            1. That is not what Trump promised when coming up with the idea of building this idiotic wall. 2. We should rid our country of these programs so the immigrants have a billion($) less reasons to come here. 3. Most of the jobs they steal, and I’m assuming you’re referring to Mexicans and some Central Americans, are jobs most of us Americans deem to physically dangerous or low in pay to even care about. I’ve lived in all 4 border states and they steal jobs most of us Americans find tedious and wouldn’t consider unless we were paid 3-4 times as much . And yes I know they are here illegally and some I’m guessing legally. You enjoy the ride because it’s not going to be easy for our new President unless he decides to derail (pun intended) the entire country just like past Presidents.

            Little over two years ago I saw A HUGE SIGN outside a Homo Depot (in Spanish I assume). I could not read it but when I got closer I was able to read a much smaller sign in the lower right corner in English that said one of the local contractors was looking for laborers.

            Contractor used to pay inexperienced American framers and roofers $16 / hour to start 20 years ago. Apparently the contractor now preferred to hire illegal Mexican aliens for a fraction of the wages that it would hire Americans. Why else would the sign in English have been so small and obscure? That’s right, the contractor did NOT want to pay LEGAL wages to LEGAL AMERICANS.

            It has been said
            that the illegals about 11mn cost the USA $113 billion a
            year……about $9000 each illegal per year……..and from what I
            have read, they live in dire poverty, so the numbers must be
            wrong……..in Sweden refugees receive $175 each permonth to pay for
            everything including taxes, thats about $2100 per person per year and
            almost all of that money comes back into the countries system, goods
            and services bought and taxes paid………so the USAs numbers are

Has anyone noticed that the vast majority of Muslims that Obama brought to America are young able bodied men of Jihad age? Obama also left our borders wide open for the Islamists to enter.

      Yes, I remember obama talking about his civilian security force during the 2008 election campaign. It was to be his equivalent of hitler’s SS. The SS was assembled of hitler’s most loyal followers and intended to protect hitler from the German military if it would turn against him during WWII. Just as obama did not trust the U.S. military, hitler did not trust the German military which was loyal to Germany but not always loyal to hitler himself.

      I also have noticed that so many of obama’s muslim “refugees” were military-age males (MAMs). Are there no women, children, or elderly refugees? Should not those MAMs have stayed to protect and provide for their women, children, and elderly?

  • glorybe2

    Oh gosh and golly ! Does this mean that the American tax payers are going to pay? Why would republicans need to vote to supply money? And now CHUMP claims that parts of the wall will be invisible. How much per mile does it cost to build an invisible wall? And how many thousands of border agents will we need to rush out and pick up the thousands per day that go through or over or under the wall? Keeping in mind that there are three shifts a day as well as days off, vacations, sick days etc. it obviously will require better than 35,000 patrol agents and they all need pay checks, pensions, medical policies and the entire nine yards. Make no mistake we are talking about billions heaped upon billions to build and man this wall. And we will need huge processing centers while people are checked out or held as well as staff and services to support those folks while they are detained. Money is the very reason that Mexico does little to stop these folks in the first place.

    • KKmoderate

      I imagine our tax dollars will just be diverted from social give-away programs to fund the wall as the invasion of illegals and the “refugees” is decreased.

      • glorybe2

        Get ready for shocks. CHUMP’s policies will cause taxes to go up quite a bit and worse yet we are going to see some heavy duty inflation. He is giving Wall St. and big corporations a lot more power to extract money from the people. You have been betrayed.

        • KKmoderate

          Higher than $1400 monthly health insurance for 2 with a $10,000 deductible? No we’ve all been betrayed by BO and BTW you are taking it out of the Deplorable wallet@!

          • glorybe2

            If you are paying that kind of rate for health insurance you could always buy a policy outside of Medicare or other government sources. If your insurance is that high there must be some unusual problem. Are you in one of the states that did not join into the AFC when they were asked to do so? Is it your state that caused the problem as most people are pretty darned happy with Obama care at this time. Have you noticed that after over six years the republican party has failed to offer a better plan to the public? It really is a simple problem. The rates charged in the medical industry must be tightly regulated and we need to make private insurance illegal with the US government as the single payer. Doctors have a 100% unrestrained union. Insurance companies consume billions of dollars from the money spent on health. This should not be shocking news as we have seen it in other areas. Ambulance service was awful until it became a public utility. The military could not exist if run like a business. Private police forces don’t work well at all. Fire departments are only adequate when run by government. Why would it cause such conflict to get people to understand that health care is exactly like other critical functions of government. Even your water supply is a problem if it is not run by the town or county. Every vital service that touches your life is a government function. Think about that !

    • Morton99

      Trump has made a great show of signing more presidential orders than any president in history – in his first two weeks. All the huge campaign promises have been covered and each one of these orders has fallen flat – form a Circut Appeals Coury refusal to the Congress simply looking aghast. Mexico won’t pay for a wall, nor will the Congress. In seven years of wailing about Obamacare the Republican party still has no real plan to change it.
      So what happened.
      Simple, Trump, the game show host thinks its a TV reality show. The glitz and theatrical displays don’t work the way he thought. This is not an authoritarian State. A 34 percent approval rate will not drive this extreme right wing policy. The politics of fear has run out of steam.

  • dahniuru

    President Trump should put the funding of the wall into both the House and the Senate, for an immediate vote. Then we all should get a list of how each politico voted.

    Then, we can start some nationwide fund raising parties by selling cakes and cookies and just getting donations via a legitimate fund raising operation, maybe one associated with the VETS. Use those funds to start building that wall. Then get the votes for the next elections to remove those who are anti-wall.

  • Robert Sleadd

    This is about the “Wall”, I’m a big Trump supporter, but I was wondering, has anyone done research,
    on how effective would a Drone be? I thought as the Wall could do the job, but it is outrageously expensive. If drones were set up in sections, that the drones could handle, and Boarder patrol agents, were in the middle of the drones path, monitoring these drones, and have quick response time to handle any illegal crossing..
    Several drone sections are set, in the most potential areas, where illegal crossing are made. This operation would have several of these sections that the Boarder Patrol could handle.
    Just a thought, I don’t know much about the drones capabilities, but if they could be set up, and patrol the boarder. I would think the cost of drones, and upkeep would be much lower than building a very long Wall? Like to hear if this is a possibility, or that drones in this situation could never work?

    Robert

  • If I remember correctly, the democrats APPROVED the funds for this wall several years ago, during obummers reign. They have never been used as we all know, but this funding problem is NOT all that hard to figure out. Whether it is the wall or blocking certain classes of people coming to this country, the Constitution AND the law that was passed by Congress in 1952 gives him all the right to do this. Some parts of the 1952 law have been modified, but not the intent. It is just because the cry babies didn’t get and WON’T get their way…..

  • David in MA

    “In Trump, we seem to have one of the rarest creatures in the country – a politician willing to actually do what he said he would do. It’s a remarkable sight to see.”

    First President Trump is not a politician.
    Secondly, President Trump knows how to “hire” people who know how to do things, not sit on their asses politicians who waste.
    Thirdly, President Trump understand the drain on America that illegal immigrants are.
    AND,
    Fourthly, President Trump understand America cannot buy her friends.

  • Trump’s team is brilliant and building the Border Wall is the smartest and greatest investment ever made by the USA government.!!! Forget repayment by Mexico and ignore a tax. Besides the carnage from drug pouring in, look at these costs.
    The 2011 Martin & Ruark “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on US Taxpayers” “estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 Billion; nearly $29 Billion at the federal level and $84 Billion at the state and local level”. [2011 report on old data]
    Today’s and future costs are significantly greater. The $113 Billion did not include the cost of humans and illicit drugs trafficking, lost citizen’s wages, the society’s drug users and crime victims nor positive benefit factors as less crime from repeat deported criminals, safer streets and communities.
    The recent MIT and the anti-Trump Washington Post’s fact checker estimated the wall cost could be as high as $25 to $41 Billion for the entire border length.
    Reducing the annual costs by 10%, the worse-case Wall Cost would be repaid within 2 to 4 years !!!
    When did any government (or any financial adviser) make an investment with a 25% to 50% return within the first year followed by that annuity for life?
    It would be just a bonus if Mexico made any repayment

  • kbmiller

    Yes, and ex pres. Barack OHOMO, the unqualified, incompetent, boneheaded JackA$$ did what he said he’d do, radically change the US. Now we have a country with more poor people due to the slowest growing economy in decades. More people on food stamps. A failing health care system, with higher costs and less care (Obama Care). 94 million out of work. Porous borders and absolutely NO idea who’s coming in. A weakened military. Thousands of “Pardoned Felons”. And a system where grown men are allowed to go into teenaged girls bathrooms. Yes, OHOMO brought change all right. Now it’s time for the adults to clean up his MESS.

    The Wall will be built where it’s needed but being built all of the way to the Gulf of Mexico is going to be a problem. If the fence is built anywhere in a straight line some people are going to loose land. Below i the Big Bend Area. From a ways East of El Paso to the Gulf the border is the river and it’s anything but running in a straight line. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1e51ff6b64c1320d12d1c4b1239791a5efa6f7022da987fa104e8290aecab8af.jpg

    The money for the wall has been there long ago, Bush last speech to Congress was build the wall or risk loosing our Sovereignty. I know they are trying to blame all this on Bush and O but actually it was Clinton and O. Bush stopped “Catch and Release”, O put it back in. Bush stopped his gun running program as soon as he found out the Cartels had figured out the guns were rigged with devices but O kept Fast and Furious going until the Congress shut it down, he then took the documents and gave them Executive Privilege as Holder asked keeping the truth away again. Something else Trump needs to get along with the bin laden documents, that put Iran in with bin laden, giving money to him and al Qaeda along with a connection to 9/11, but of course he didn’t want Congress to see them , he was making the Iran Deal at the time.

    yeah the democrats will never let Trump accomplish anything if they can stop it. if they get out of his way they know this man will get many good things done and they will have no chance to defeat him in 2020. and that’s what they are looking at. they couldn’t defeat him with no record to run on so imagine if he accomplishes everything he wants he will be a shoe in for a second term and there’s a good chance along the way the democrats lose even more seats in both houses making them almost extinct. Eventually Trump will succeed he never quits and loves a challenge and it’s sure fun watching him not acting like the common stooge politician. They never had to deal with a person like Trump but he has dealt with people like them his whole life and that’s why he will win.

    Just read where immigrants including refugees heading for the Canadian Border, one Somalian said he knew Trump would pick him up. those wide open borders had over 400 men a day crossing and Obama telling border guards to let them go, so not only will they find illegal immigrants but refugees from the worst countries here. Let Canada deal with them and send those from Australia on that island, for 3 friggin years go there also. Heard from Canadians that Trudeau going all out Muslim and is also embracing Islam.
