    The Democrats are misjudging how many people really want the border secured. Of course the left knows so much that simply isn't so, it why Hillary didn't win in a landslide like the pundits thought. The bottom line is Americans are sick and tired of paying for Health, Education, Welfare and Law Enforcement for folks that shouldn't be here in the first place. Anyone who wants to come here needs it follow the legal immigration/asylum process or forever be barred from being citizens.

    Wow. You're not kidding. "We saw some folks are raising money for a border wall to keep out our migrant siblings and fellow human beings". You just can't make this stuff up. Welcome to America, where the crazy people are determined to run the asylum. :omfg:

    It is actually raising money for an immigrant legal defense organization. But that idiotic sentence I posted was a direct quote. This is directly from the Go Fund Me also, "underpaid labor is essential to the U.S. economy." Are they suggesting we should help migrants so we can exploit them by underpaying them? There is so much wrong with 99% of the left's arguments for essentially open borders. From their bleeding heart arguments to their economic exploitation arguments, it all is full of holes.

    And that's just to get to 1 Billion, not 5.... Thanks for pointing out what a ridiculous amount of money is being requested here.... Imagine what decent use 5 Billion could be to various aspects of the failing infrastructure of this country??

    The actual quote is "whose tragically-underpaid labor is essential to the U.S. economy." Get out of here with your nonsense.

    So you agree that their "underpaid labor is essential to the U.S. economy"? "tragic" or not? Do you think it is ok to encourage migration on the grounds that we need their "underpaid labor"? You don't think that is exploitation?

    You must not understand how the english language works. "Tragically-underpaid" is a modifier of "labor is essential to the US economy." The sentence is stating that the labor is essential to the US economy and that it is tragically-underpaid. Keep on spinning though.

    Should be around 2024 assuming constant rate of funding.

    Course nobody expects trumpettes to understand the the government can only accept a general funds donation. It cannot be designated by the donor. so in essence they just paid a voluntary tax that the government can spend on pencils and stuff.

    Could this be a "false pretense" go fund me where they'll have to refund the money because it can't be used for the stated purpose?

    What a bunch of suckers! It'll be so interesting to see how much of that money actually goes for a wall....and how much disappears into a secret bank account .

    :roflol::roflol::roflol:


    Who started the GoFundMe page, Ivanka? Don jr. ?

    Zero funds go to the wall. Trumpettes still haven't figured out how their government actually works.
