Soooo.... Pence was saying "4000" but meant "0"...






Eh...

There are numbers...just not anything approaching numbers like 3000.

People like Muhammad Azeem, Abdullahi Omar Fidse, and Mukhtar Ahmad, all on the terrorist watch list, have been apprehended at the Mexican border. There's a small number of actual known affiliates and subjects on the watch list who have been detained on our Southwestern border since '01, but not enough in my opinion to make the wall about terrorist threats.

The wall is about Mexicans, I think Trump is just playing a shell game.

I will stand corrected, to a point. I think the sort of realistic number of people with "with ties to terrorism" is something like 15 since 2001... and they were at ports of entry. Most, if not all, were during the Bush or Obama years. Trump & Pence have floated the number "10", but their support of their claim is tenuous (IMO).

Note 1: These instances were at ports of entry.

Note 2: Anyone should feel free to correct me (a link would be nice, so I don't make future mistakes).

Note 3: I have been stopped at the U.S. border at least 4 times (the most recent time in 2016)... my name was/is apparently on a watch list.

Even if the wall was built, would it stop drugs?


They're going to need a bigger catapult

This.

Why do or tax dollars need to be budgeted to build a wall that Mexico is going to pay for?

Down payment?

Ok then... we should be given a logical fiscally sound explanation of how the money is going to come from Mexico and help pay down our national debt... or at least pay back the $5.x billion... we're not in a trade war with Mexico, so it can't be from new tariffs...

How much do you think it will cost to maintain a wall?

China has a wall and made the Mongols pay for it. I worked

Hadrian had a wall and it worked. Kinda

The French had a wall that worked but the Germans cheated and went around it.

China's wall is more like a series of small forts with a raised road between them.

A series of small sentry posts connected by a road and barbed wire between them.

Nothing. As the greatest most perfect wall, it won't need upkeep.

China's wall didn't work; think Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan.

Hadrian's wall worked for a while.

French wall...

Berlin Wall worked... sort of, until it was torn down.

The Taco Curtain, if built won't work.

Russian Lawyer Natalia Veselnitskay charged by federal prosecutors in New York with obstruction of justice.

Ooops!!!!

Lawyers working for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort accidentally revealed on Tuesday the clearest public evidence of coordination between the campaign and Russians, adding new details to the murky mosaic of potential collusion in 2016 -- including sharing polling data with an alleged Russian operative.

Collusion...
