    So what happened?

    It turns out Trump is an interdimensional space traveller. Some of his statements were given in a dimension where he was actually able to make a deal with his GOP legislature and was able to start building new wall. Some of his statements were given in dimensions we haven't yet identified because they don't make sense in any world that we can comprehend, but that's just because of our limitations. If we knew what Trump knew about those other dimensions we would see his statements were completely true.

    Never mind that the democrats have time after time voted for funding physical barriers.

    Booby traps.

    Enforcement of laws against employing illegals.

    The Great Wall also fell. So it worked for a while, until it didn't.

    Human ingenuity outpaces law enforcement implementation.

    By the time you finished a wall alternative methods would be employed.

    This is "security theater". Look it up. Like the TSA, holding everybody up, failing to catch testers almost always.

    When trump says "wall" you get a shot of happy juice. Which is why he says it.

    EL PASO, Texas (AP) People walking over the Paso del Norte Bridge linking this West Texas border city to Mexico can watch President Donald Trumps border wall getting bigger in real time.

    Workers in fluorescent smocks can be seen digging trenches, pouring concrete and erecting rust-colored slabs of 18-foot-high metal to replace layers of barbed wire-topped fencing along the mud-colored Rio Grande, which is usually little more than a trickle.
    ===============================================
    People walking across the bridge between El Paso & Mexico point at the mess and say 'Trump.'

    'Trump said barriers turned El Paso from one of the nations most dangerous cities to one of its safest, but thats not true. El Paso, population around 800,000, had a murder rate less than half the national average in 2005, a year before the most recent expansion of its border fence.' Trump is lying about the effect the wall has had on violent crime in El Paso & most in the area see right through his desperate bid to fulfill his major campaign promise to build a wall that Mexico would pay for. That's not going to happen either.
    Crime in El Paso has dropped 20%+ since the wall. Bullets from across the border used to strike buildings and homes in El Paso REGULARLY.

    Not now.

    I'm sure liberals can come up with a new scheme to get more party voters. Perhaps your 'free stuff' campaign.
    No it is not. And your authoritarian days are numbered. Your minority will not rule for much longer. It is nothing but an abberation so stop fooling yourself.

    They'd rather GO BACK to BULLETS FLYING ACROSS THE BORDER from JUAREZ, REGULARLY, while LYING ABOUT THE CRIME DROP SINCE THE BARRIER WENT UP ?



    This town is proof that Trumps wall can work


    Before 2010, federal data show the border city was mired in violent crime and drug smuggling, thanks in large part to illicit activities spilling over from the Mexican side. Once the fence went up, however, things changed almost overnight. El Paso since then has consistently topped rankings for cities of 500,000 residents or more with low crime rates, based on FBI-collected statistics. The turnaround even caught the attention of former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and other Obama administration officials, who touted it as one of the nations safest cities while citing the beefed-up border security there.

    Federal data illustrates just how remarkable the turnaround in crime has been since the fence was built. According to FBI tables, property crimes in El Paso have plunged more than 37 percent to 12,357 from their pre-fence peak of 19,702 a year, while violent crimes have dropped more than 6 percent to 2,682 from a peak of 2,861 a year.The overall crime rate in El Paso continued to fall last year, prompting city leaders to trumpet the good news in a press release that noted, Because El Paso is a border town, its low crime rate may surprise you.

    This town is proof that Trump’s wall can work
