    They are a total waste of time. Trump just needs to open the government back up, blame it on the Dems, and say he is bigger than the Dems. Then he needs to declare a national emergency and build the wall - screw the left who have no interest in border security at all. I just read today that both California and New York City want to bring on single payer healthcare and specifically include illegals. And they want us to believe they are interested in border security.

    Yes. It shows weakness, lack of ability to work with people, arrogance, being a pussy, ego

    A national emergency would wind up in the courts until he is out of office & the whole question becomes moot.

    It's a negotiating tactic of a stable genius.
    If you have to resort to insults, name calling, ad hominem attacks, straw men, red herrings, appeals to authority, and other dirty debate tactics, the veracity of you argument is questionable.

    Nice opinions and all, but it's not just the left. Most Americans are against the wall.

    Actually thats a hellava an idea.

    Re open not to concede but on principle.

    Then declare the emergency.... lets face it its "becoming" a crisis. But not in the way we want it to be.

    2 children died due to medical deficiencies.
    2 Adults killed by illegals

    thats 4 deaths in a matter of a month ALL due to the actions of an Illegal NOT by Trump or a wall.

    if the Illegals did NOT commit an illegal act all 4 would likely still be alive? Fact check that? If the 2 children did NOT make the border trek would they or would the not be alive right now?

    If the 2 illegals 1 that murder an LEO and the other a DRUNK DRIVER did not get INTO the US would these 2 victims likely be alive.

    This is whats in the damn news what is NOT being covered is whats worse........Yes it is becoming a crisis, creating discord in our government, our people and a humanitarian issue at our borders.
