    Fugly.

    Does anyone here live on the border? How would you like to have your view of the Rio Grand turn into a blight?

    Most of the airplanes that I've seen will go over all of the walls that I've ever seen. Even the really ugly ones.

    An unseen problem is the wall/fence will be built under the premise of keeping people out but, in reality it will be keeping us in.
    We need real immigration reform, like making it easier for peaceful people to enter the country legally and eliminating the welfare state for illegal immigrants.
    Well - when it comes to protecting and building countries I'd rather, if they waste billions every year, that it *at least* be put to *our* country.

    If they wanted to put millions into water filtration systems, slaughter houses and prisons we SURELY could have applied that money to the US instead of Iraq and other areas which didn't really want them to begin with.

    What screwed up psychology is that: help protect and rebuild a foreign country but when we have *those same* problems in the US it doesn't matter.

    I vote yea, because our country should not simply be wide open for whoever to walk-in at will. I believe that the borders need to be secure and only desirable immigrants allowed into the nation.

    If that were the case, only attractive females would be able to enter on my watch.

    But if you have a time machine, by all means let me know, I need to go back in time and tell myself not to do some things - And to do some other things. Whereupon, I will cease to exist as I know me. Depending on which theory of time travel I believe... At the time in question, that is.

    Hmm. Somehow, that sounds a tad too simple.

    America’s infrastructure could surely use it.

    Exactly!

    We're really struggling through a mass of problems - but we continue to pump into other countries - we're going into *massive spending deficits* to cover the costs of continuing our campaigns in other areas.

    When do we start to matter to our government?

    Yes, but only if machine gun nests are added as well.

    As someone who supports going to Fortress America I support building fences along both borders.

    This, very few people talk about killing the welfare state when it comes to immigration.
