perhaps ironically, some parts of America reportedly do need a wall. we'd be spending a fortune on a wall with questionable usefulness, while ignoring a broken wall that needs to be fixed. >_>

There was one proposition that the wall have solar panels for all (or part?) of it. Mexico may not pay for the wall but the wall may pay for itself if it was able to provide some other use aside from sitting there idly not even keeping people out. (I personally advocate for open boarders between the US Canada and Mexico, similar to what the EU has.

Well, who payed for Obama's Border Wall?

That's right: OBAMA'S BORDER WALL

Back in 2006, then-senator Obama, Schumer, Reid, and Pelosi all voted in favor of building 700 miles of mixed wall and fence along the border.

Since then, most of it has been built.

Nobody has a problem with this.

Why? Has to do with that little letter before their last names "D" rather than "R".

Except there already is. Look up "Secure Fence Act 2006"

Brought to you by: Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer.

I have a feeling this won't be the last time a conservative tries to convince me a fence is a wall.

It's actually mixed fence and wall.

As if "build a wall" meant something like one seamless wall, with absolutely no fence, from border to border. Let's not be deliberately obtuse mmmkay?

so yes, there already is a wall. Quite a few of them, in fact. But feel free to keep quibbling and spilling smug all over

It's pretty much done

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Fence_Act_of_2006

By May 2011, DHS reported completing 649 miles of fencing (99.5% of the 652 miles planned). The barrier was made up of 299 miles of vehicle barriers and 350 miles of pedestrian fence.[5] The fencing includes a steel fence (varying in height between 18 and 26 feet) that divides the border towns of Nogales, Arizona in the U.S. and Nogales, Sonora in Mexico.[8] A 2016 report by the Government Accountability Office confirmed that the government had completed the fence by 2015.[9] A 2017 GAO report noted: "In addition to the 654 miles of primary fencing, CBP has also deployed additional layers of pedestrian fencing behind the primary border fencing, including 37 miles of secondary fencing and 14 miles of tertiary fencing."[10]

lmfao @ this feller right here acting like Trump never wanted to build a giant 55 foot tall fucking wall and calling me deliberately obtuse



It's not like there are videos of him saying this over and over and over and over or anything

I have a feeling this is exactly what conservatives are going to be saying when it turns out his stupid ass wall is never coming. That all Donald Trump needs to do is spend more on million dollar fences (that will do nothing) and that will god honestly make his voters happy.

Think about it this way.

Say you have a yard and you want to build a fence around it. So, you build a wooden picket fence around the yard. Then, a year later, you tear down that fence and put a chain-link fence in its place. Then a year later you put barbed wire over the chain link fence. Then a year later you install auto sentries on top of the fence. Then a year later, you dig a moat alongside the fence.

Now, lets apply your argument to this situation: You didn't complain when they built a picket fence, so why complain when they install auto sentries?

Do you see the difference? As you say, we already have a fence which focuses on the areas which it benefits most. On top of that, we have more knowledge now than we did 11 years ago. We know now that fences aren't really a cost effective (or effective in general) way of reducing illegal immigration. Continuing pushing the idea of "fences will save us" at this point is ignorant and a poor use of taxpayer money.
