The Great Wall

And still nothing but CGI examples.
I'm handicapped in being a believer by having visited and camped in Texas and other border areas. And this site has added to the experience with fake news.

71 miles completed and 509 miles to be completed by the election.

And some say it ain't gonna happen.

Oh and border crossings down about 60% last month. MAGA
The video of clearings waiting for a new wall are the very first new wall that has been started. Every inch prior to the small section currently about to be built, was replacement of existing barriers only.

...no "new wall" - any extension to existing structures - has yet been completed.

Better barrier is better than not as good barrier. A few miles of new barrier is better than no barrier. But his campaign promise was easy to see as unfulfillable when he was campaigning, and it's easy to see why the chances of it ever happening are slim to none.

Heck yeah!! I'll take a "slim to none" from you!

Especially considering you said there was ZERO chance Trump could win! He won and new wall is happening!

WINNING!!!

Was the 60% decrease from that 71 miles of wall? If that's the case, we'll only need about 50 more miles of wall to reach 100%. If there is no correlation to the decrease to the Wall, then it wasn't needed. Just increase what was done to cause the decrease in border crossings.

Faulty reasoning.
It doesn't matter about any correlation. The wall is a work in progress. You're trying to establish a false premise...and not very "artfully" at that.
The border crossers merely go to an area where the wall does not exist until the wall is completed totally.

And after completion where do the border crossers go? They will come in legally through the gates. They will still get here on visas and then stay. The problem will still exist. Most all of them that want in, we will let walk right in through the gates.

Now it will most definitely slow them down and keep out a few criminals, but for the most part, they will still get in. They will still become a burden on our infrastructure. If they become citizens, they will be Democrats!

Your math skills are lacking. The number coming in legally is a very very small part of what is coming in here illegally. Did I say very enough?

I thought VISA overstays exceeded illegal border crossings.
VISA overstays cumulatively do. However, each day, the number of VISA's issued as compared to illegal crossings is very very small.

There is an answer for VISA overstays, but right now ICE is overloaded with illegal crossings and has little resources for rounding up those who overstay a VISA.

Furthermore, the numbers are misleading, because the government has no way to count how many cross illegally, they only compare VISA overstays to those who are caught who crossed illegally.

The failure to teach geography is at the heart of the wall debate.

1. Who is the "we" who will let them walk right in through the gates?
2. How many are a "few" criminals?...(those are merely value judgments)
Do you have evidence to support those suppositions??
If they legally go through the process to become citizens, I agree they will probably vote for democrats. However, they will be citizens and a citizen (no matter how dumb, ignorant, stupid, or ill-informed) can still vote any which way want they to vote.
Certainly you would not be in favor of not allowing them to qualify to vote, would you ???
