    In this case it is because he didn't really think this through and just said a wall was going to be built without really getting into the details of what that actually meant logistically and financially. So now it's just a crap show of scrambling trying to make a complicated project sound good. This is precisely why I have no faith in this administration to do this and why I wouldn't give them a dime. Do I think barriers can work? Sure. Would I give large amounts of money to people who can't even get their story straight in terms of how it's going to get funded or it's actual scope? Nope.

    and Republicans only care about symbolic wastes of money and not Border Security. Funny how this wasn't a "crisis" when it was a Republic Congress and Republican President, it only became a "crisis" when a Dem house came into play. Liars is what Republicans are.

    Even the Russians are laughing at Trumps steel-slat wall.
    Scary! You better hire a bodyguard. That woman is no doubt climbing across that wall because she intends to kill you.

    No matter how many times you say this you will never get a citizen of Trump Fan Nation to be honest about it.

    This was not a crisis until the Democrats won the House.

    It is shocking to see how Trump is playing his base, and they are all allowing themselves to be played.

    And if the Republicans in the senate TRULY thought this was a important thing, they would have used the nuclear option to get it. They obviously didn't think this was a National Emergency then, they only do so now because the house Dems are opposed to it and they have a scapegoat.

    The sad part about it is Trump could have easily looked at immigration from a much broader perspective and pushed for immigration policies that would have made a difference. In that he could have included barriers to help DHS/BP; I would have been on board with something like that.

    Exactly. I have been saying this over and over for the last few days.

    That's why this little game is going to hurt the Republicans in the end. Granted Trump has a base of a few dozen million people who will support and believe him no matter what. But the independents and many other people aren't stupid. We use our heads, and we use our brains. This is not up for debate. This was not a crisis until the Dems won the House - if it was, it would have been addressed as a crisis between January 2017 and January 2019.

    I know Trump thinks his base is stupid. His problem is assuming everyone else is, too.

    It’s naive and stupid. Drugs are smuggled across uncontrolled sections of border all the time. It’s MUCH easier to get 100 twenty pound shipments across open border than it is to get one 2000 pound shipment across a controlled port and smugglers know this. Drugs go through ports primarily to insure that there are more photo ops for law enforcement with big stashes.
