    Border patrol agents say walls work. Democrats in congress say walls don't work. Who you gonna believe?

    "Border Patrol agents say they can’t be much clearer: They want more walls along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    In a survey conducted by the National Border Patrol Council, the agents’ union, they overwhelmingly supported adding a “wall system” in strategic locations, embracing President Trump’s argument that it will boost their ability to nab or deter would-be illegal immigrants."
    " A stunning 89 percent of line agents say a “wall system in strategic locations is necessary to securing the border.” Just 7 percent disagreed."


    Truth is Democrats know walls work and democrats are doing nothing here except implementing their resistance policy.

    "Even as late as 2013, the Senate compromise immigration bill called for completing the 700 miles of fencing envisioned in the 2006 law. Every Democrat in the Senate at the time voted for that bill.

    But Mr. Trump’s ascendancy has politicized the wall, and some of those former supporters are now backing away from fencing."

    It'd be wise to listen to these agents. They're the ones on the front line everyday dealing with this issue.

    It would also be wise to listen to some of the Sheriffs and cops in California, illegal aliens and California's liberal Democrat sanctuary laws are killing cops and citizens too.

    Rancher says walls stopped the flow of illegals on his property! Walls work!

    Lying Democrats tell you that walls don't work. Listen to this rancher who lives on the border who says 50 illegals would cross daily, once the new wall went up, it completely stopped.

    If your goal is to stop illegals then why wouldn’t you want a wall? If your goal is open borders and unimpeded illegal immigration then why would you want one?

    We all know why the left doesn’t want a wall.

    A 'wall system' in strategic locations is not building a wall (the key word in 'building a wall' is 'a'. That suggests a single wall.)

    Why did the republicans want open borders and unimpressed illegal immigration for the last two years?

    Not every republican is a republican, just like not every democrat is a patriot.

    Your link is from from OVER 9 MONTHS AGO.

    Thus, it is NOT a "Current Event".

    You posted this thread in the Wrong Section.

    The Survey is not "NEW", it is Ancient History (in Political Terms).

    Why are you posting an OLD (from Over 9 Months Ago) survey (claiming it is "NEW") in Current Events?

    I know that the pro-Trump RW is getting really strained for material (trying to defend Trump's INDEFENSIBLE Trainwreck), and they have my sympathy, but posting an article that is Over 9 Months Old in "Current Events"?:bored:

    Most politicians are not patriots - they may start that way but the only thing that is certain is eventual corruption.

    So if republicans were at fault for the last two years why are democrats now at fault even though they have only had partial control for half of the shutdown?

    That’s easy. Trump wasn’t president two years ago and the democrats who offered up a deal are now changing positions. Pelosi and Schumer aren’t dealing with republicans, they’re dealing with Trump.

    Ok, 11 months and 20 days ago...

    And you’re right they are not dealing with republicans or trump — they are dealing with an obstructionist Mitch who refuses to allow a floor vote on a bill that previously passed with bipartisan support because none of them can be expected to do what is in the best interest of the nation. Wouldn’t want to have to make trump veto the cr

    He learned well from Reid, the guy who protected obama from making unpopular decisions. But politics be politics.

    I’m a little curious. We’re you participating in the threads prior to the election claiming Trump was a liberal?

    Event: Survey conducted (at least) 10 Months Ago (with a link from April 2, 2018.)

    RW Take: "New" survey. Rushes here to post in "Current Events".:bored:

    Conclusion: RW "Talking Point" material is wearing pathetically thin.

    Sad times to be a Trumpie.:smfh:
