Cannot wait for this idiot to get out of office. It's horrible that anyone supports him.
People can support border security without being a fan of Trump.I had no idea there were so many Trump supporters in the Buffyverse fandom.
Quite true. Though I feel that landmines, not a wall, would solve the illegal immigration problem overnight.People can support border security without being a fan of Trump.
They did a poll several years ago about placing landmines around the walls/fences and I was surprised at how many people supported it.Quite true. Though I feel that landmines, not a wall, would solve the illegal immigration problem overnight.
There could be a Go Fund Me page to finance landmine purchases before they're lovingly placed at the border. No muss, no fuss. You try to sneak across, and boom! No legs. Harder to run from ICE now.
Plus, nothing has to be built! I fully support this idea.
When they start referring to people as "illegals" that is going beyond just talking about the issues. There have also been several insults towards liberals.People can support border security without being a fan of Trump.
I really dislike that politics has become so tribalistic instead of being based on the actual issues.
On a slightly related note Paddy Ashdown of the Lib Dems has passed. A sad day.
If human trafficking were still legal, would you refer to runaway slaves as "illegals"? I mean, they were only allowed to live in the US as property so living as free people, they were living here illegally.It's a lot easier to say "illegals" than "visitors that decided to unlawfully live in our country"
If they are here illegally then they are here illegally. There are many sex workers that are shipped here illegally, but I think there is a distinction between those forced to live here and those that actively circumvent the law to live here. The former I believe, can seek asylum through various organizations. I am sure the same would be the case for these hypothetical runaway slaves.If human trafficking were still legal, would you refer to runaway slaves as "illegals"?

What? Just... what?Many Latinx come from families who visited the region that became the US centuries before it was discovered by Europeans. Even after it became a country, the border line moved so some Mexicans had their homes (lived in for generations) suddenly count as part of Texas and since they aren't US citizens they're illegally living in their own home.
It's not about security. Or not just about security. Why would terrorists want to go up from the UK to Greenland & Iceland just to get to Canada to enter the US?If it was just about security then why is there no talk of a 21-70 billion dollar wall separating Canada? Terrorists could go up from the UK to Greenland & Iceland then to Canada and into the US.
If Chuck and Nancy are upset about the possibility of a wall, which, in itself, would be both totally non-aggressive and relatively maintenance free, they would go totally apoplectic at the very thought of mines.Yes, a wall would be extremely costly. That's why Iand mines are such a better idea; they'd be incredibly effective AND cost efficient.
Nothing would make our borders totally impregnable, short of borrowing force field technology from the Wakandans, but a proper wall would, at least, deter the majority of illegal border crossings.Drug cartels maintain tunnels from Mexico to the US that would go under any wall.
I have no idea what you just said.Well it has been long enough since the last reply. Of all those reports of Alien spacecraft, of the hundreds or thousands of government employees who spouted the blatantly dumb explanations ( like its a weather balloon ). If they had been sacked the money saved could have paid for the wall by now.
Hey, landmines are totally non-aggressive as well. They're just lying there, minding their own business. In all fairness, its not like they asked someone to step on them....a wall, which, in itself, would be totally non-aggressive and relatively maintenance free...
