    No it isn't. How did you get that from those links or his post?

    It does show that it just doesn't work.

    I wonder why the conservatives ignore the fact that there are 4 times as many apprehensions for illegal immigrants on the northern border?

    Are you really so naive? He didn't come out and say "Let's enforce our immigration laws." He said, "They're rapists and murderers." He manipulated voters by inciting hate against a minority. Many recognized it for the fear-mongering that it was. People like you fell for it.

    Do you deny that he's portraying them as murderers and rapists? Do you admit that citing a few examples of illegal immigrant murderers proves nothing other than he's trying to manipulate people emotionally by inciting fear and hate?

    In fact, it is not only illegal, but immoral to oppose Trump border enhancements because they are not doing so to save money, they are doing so to save their political chances come 2020.
    Can you share with us exactly what is going on in these border cities that is such a crisis?

    You seem to know something that is going on vastly contradicting what many citizens and leaders of those cities say is really happening. Just a few with a quick search:

    https://www.caller.com/story/news/te...ll/2519216002/

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/23/u...migration.html

    https://q13fox.com/2018/06/21/gop-ma...ats-misplaced/

    McAllen, El Paso, and Brownsville show in a quick search that those border cities do not have any kind of crisis.

    That other crisis — the one President Trump says has been unfolding on the border because of illegal immigration — is largely a fiction, the mayor, Tony Martinez, and other Brownsville residents and leaders said.

    “There is not a crisis in the city of Brownsville with regards to safety and security,” said Mr. Martinez, who has lived in Brownsville since the late 1970s. “There’s no gunfire. Most of the people that are migrating are from Central America. It’s not like they’re coming over here to try to take anybody’s job. They’re trying to just save their own lives. We’re doing fine, quite frankly.”

    That isn't an intelligent answer. You marginalize your credibility with posts like that.

    I can't speak for Texas but I can speak for my own state, CA., and I live approx. 40 - 50 miles N. of the border. I did live in Imperial Beach 10 years, the last border beach city in CA and what I witnessed there was pretty unlawful.

    Sanctuary states like mine are making CA. a hot mess. The entire crop of leftist Democrats welcomes and harbors wiling lawbreakers.

    I don't think I mentioned in the above anything about a "crisis".
    But since you did, why is this humanitarian crisis different than the humanitarian crisis under Obama?

    The Democrats didnít shut down the government.

    Re: Trump's wall is about giving people an enemy to hate

    These lefty liberals really make me laugh. They are under the impression the thousands of illegal immigrants flooding over the border will make the USA a better place. Well lefty liberals, they won't. They are not entering the country in order they can offer America something it hasn't already got, they are entering America to take what they can get, and quite often at any cost. Illegal immigrants create ghettos, commit crime, and bring fear where fear wasn't. If they could offer the USA something positive, they could enter legally, has anyone thought of that ?
