Only 10% of the drugs come through the southern boarder. 90% come through the ports. This is common knowledge so do your homework before spouting off.
That is your opinion.

They come through ports of entry which is still a border issue. Many are brought by illegals

I am getting screwed with paying Mueller salary and all his high-end democratic attorneys.
The investigation has actually made money. But you wouldn’t know that because you’re too busy getting screwed by Donald.

Mueller Probe Cost $25 Million So Far, Report Says. It’s Pulled in $48 Million From Tax Cheats

Robert Mueller’s investigation has cost just over $25 million in the first 16 months of its investigation.

Though the investigation comes with a hefty price tag, it may have actually paid for its own investigation, with its probe leading to monetary estimated gains of up to $48 million for the government through the tax evasion the investigation has revealed.

Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, was sentenced for conspiracy and obstruction of justice in September. As part of his plea deal, Manafort agreed to forfeit assets that amount to between $42 million and $46 million, including about $22 million in property, CNBC reports. The case revealed how Manafort avoided paying more than $15 million in taxes by laundering $60 million from pro-Russian Ukrainians, CNN reports.

They only make that claim because it's 90% is found where the people are actively looking... It does not account for what was missed.

If there was a way to inventory what got through, then you could at least know where to focus attention. That's impossible though.

$25 million in the first 16 months and that does not take into account the FBI investigation, House investigation, Senate investigation and IG investiation.

That's your opinion and that is not what is going to happen. There will be wall.
There already is a wall.

And in regard to Clinton, we all know she lied about Benghazi and her emails. She sent out Rice on every Sunday AM TV show and told the big lie about what caused the attacked in Beghazi...if I recall it was a video so she said. When they asked for more protection, they got nothi from her. She did not care that are Americans were killed there and their families are still suffering today from their losses.

And in regard to her emails, lying Comey along with Lynch and Obama got her out of that one. She does belong wearing a jumpsuit.

And in regard to Mueller he made arrests alright but nothing to do with collusion and how it affected our election.[/QUOTE]

Just one question. Why were so many of Trump's cronies caught lying? What are they hiding?

Republican's had their investigations and found nothing. Period, end of story.

For the last 2 years you've been blaming democrats, enough already!

Why don't you ask a real drug dealer how he gets his shit into the US.

It doesn't matter, build a wall they'll bring ladders and dig tunnels. What we need is better security at our Ports of Entry. For a party that claims you support law enforcement you seem to know very little about the facts.

The only law enforcement you seem to care about is ICE. For some reason you hate the FBI. :think:

Compared to the random 5.7 billion Donald is demanding (which is a small fraction of what his unfulfilled promise would cost).

And you’re whining about the Mueller investigation because....he’s causing you financial hardship or something?
