If they aren't trying to walk through, then they won't be dealing with the people who are doing all the raping.
Trump's Wall is not sealing off the ports of entry, and that is where the caravans are moving right now, the wall will stop not one single rape, murder or robbery, it is a pipe dream of the fringe right wing nutters...

It’s a terrible idea. Even if it’s legal — which is unclear, at best — it would represent another unwelcome step in America’s long march toward unilateral government by the executive.

The problem isn’t declaring an emergency. There is ample authority to do that and we live under a couple of dozen little-noticed declarations of emergency that have accumulated over the decades. The issue is redirecting military funds to the border fence. That would require a strained interpretation that treats the border fence as a military matter, among other legal gymnastics.


President Trump's Wall -- No to an Emergency | National Review

Disagree. I believe it represents the beginning of the end for him.

When one looks at the unnecessary hardship he alone has caused to individual Federal workers and to the country at large, combined with his flagrant disregard for the legislative process and his misuse of emergency powers, combined with the misappropriation of military funds, combined with whatever Mueller has on him....

I suspect that just might be enough to convince even some Republican Senators of the need to remove him from office.

At least, one can hope it is.

'Grow Up, Do Your Job, End This Shutdown': Federal Workers Hold Massive DC Rally Against Trump

"
Federal workers, government contractors, and the unions that represent them ralliedin Washington, D.C. on Thursday to pressure President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to end the ongoing government shutdown, which is just days away from becoming the longest in U.S. history.
As the president continues his "temper tantrum" over $5.7 billion in funding for his "ridiculous" wall along the U.S.-Mexico border—which Democratic lawmakers and the majority of Americans have consistently opposed—the 800,000 federal employees who aren't getting paid during the shutdown are calling on the GOP-led Senate to pass spending legislation approved by the Democratic House to reopen the government, with or without Trump's support.

Oh, so, they are such dangerous invaders that even a wall cannot stop them...

So, is this agreement or does your allegiance lie against your country?

Invasion is an act of war. If they are such dangerous invaders, why hasn't the Commander-in-Chief declared war on Mexico? Is Trump too cowardly to defend the United States against this invasion? Or does he know calling it an "invasion" is bullshit and not justification for invading Mexico?

Revenge for the two conservative judges Trump put on the Scotus.
Disagreed. The main reason is because there are better ways to resolve the illegal immigration problem; namely making it illegal to hire or harbor illegals. Immigration reform is another solution. Enforcement of present laws should have been done 24 months ago. About 40% of illegals are Visa overstays. Why aren't these people tracked down and deported? We have 12 million illegals in the US, or 30 Million if you believe Trump. A wall doesn't do anything to them since they are already here. The previously offered legal and enforcement methods would solve all of these problems but a wall does very little to solve the problem.

Leftist unions. Public service unions should be banned as FDR agreed they should not be permitted. And federal government workers earn far more than people in the private sector do.

Has anyone noticed the 20+ days? Anyone? Bloated government.
What a stupid, myopic, ignorant opinion

Really? You would betray your country because of 2 judges?

He's trying to defend your country from that invasion, if there's defenses that are being attempted to be overwhelmed then that case is easier to make. Interesting that the democrats are fighting FOR the invaders, if you acknowledge that this is a war, and the thousands killed per year by illegal aliens in your country, that makes it treason. So, are you going to call for Pelosi, Schumer and all being treated as the traitors you allege?

He's fucking it up. Part of the problem is he fired the two best military advisors on his cabinet: Mattis and Kelly. Trump thinks he knows more than the generals, but really he's just smelling his own flatulence.

Second, experienced military leaders know the best defense is a good offense. Building a wall is for idiots like the French. This is how Americans fight an invasion - they attack the invader, not hide behind a wall like cowards:
