    Who here is afraid of people who speak Spanish? Raise your hands.

    UmHmm. Thought so. Quite predictable.

    The last illegal immigrant I've seen was a guy from Ireland who was plastering ceilings. Pretty sure he didn't get here via Texas.

      The painter who lives near me hires illegal immigrants. They are all Eastern European (Albania, Serbs and Pole mostly). From what I can glean, they came across the southern border. They "snuck" in from Windsor.

        Come to my workplace in SoCal. The majority of the workers here were at one time, or are, illegal. How do I know? They tell me.

        TBH I don't have issue with it, they do a good job, but to infer that there are not a lot of Spanish speaking illegals in this country is disingenuous and naive.

            Anyone who is against the wall should have the front door to their houses removed.

              This is already been happening for weeks now. The door police are a bunch of savage jack-booted GOP Nazis.

            What history?

            The pesky Berlin wall was pretty effective until they tore it down. If walls didn't work, they wouldn't have needed to tear it down.

              It was not the wall that keep people from climbing over. It was the machine guns.
              If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

              You really want us to emulate East Germany?

              While you're on the subject, what kind of staffing did that wall require? How much would such staffing cost us?

              A true conservative would want to know what the whole project will cost to build and what the finished product will cost for its maintenance and operation. Somehow, I'm not hearing those questions from fans of the president or his over-simple slogan.

                The history of mankind.

                The pesky Berlin wall was not thousands of miles long so it's entire length could be manned with armed soldiers with the orders to shoot anyone trying to cross. Trump hasn't reached that level of depravity yet but I wouldn't be surprised if he did. Plus the US/Mexican border is far too great in length to realistically man it with guards ordered to shoot anyone in sight.

                trumpers have to just accept the fact that the horrible brown people are going to come to this country whether you want them to or not.

                  East Germany employed just under ten soldiers per mile for the wall between the two countries. This was in addition to the urban Berlin Wall, which may have needed more personnel.

                  Extrapolate that to two thousand miles. Sounds like about four aircraft carriers' worth of troops to keep people from committing a decreasing number of misdemeanors. Maybe Trump could just direct a couple of aircraft carriers to sail up the Rio Grande and we'd be safe. Entirely possible if you know more than any general (or admiral).

                      Such projection means lack of a coherent argument.

                      What's worse is it's based on intellectually dishonest premises like anyone really thinks a coast-to-coast wall is possible.

                      You claim walls don't work. I proved they do most of the time.
