There are ways to get around a physical barrier.
People are not stupid they will figure out that way.
How many tunnels will the Don's 2k mile wall go over?
Oops.....TH will be along to call that babble.
the wall would be a "fix all". If you have, please show where. It's not going to be 100% effective no matter how high it is or from what it's made. That, IMO, is a given. While I don't fully support his plan, I do believe that a physical barrier would be more effective than anything we've done so far. The wall, however, creates problems with perception and could possibly result in the death of innocent people fleeing real danger. It might not be long before a body is found on the Mexican side. If that body of a person running from a drug gang or other criminal assault, it would be tragic. As well, our news folks would have a field day doing nothing but pointing fingers at Trump as the cause of the person's death. We don't need to feed these news folks that kind of stuff to chew on. My own thinking has been that, first, we need to fully enforce the existing laws. No exceptions. We also need a clearly stated escalation plan if the original one proves ineffective.

for trying to bring this issue to a head. For a wannabe career politician, it would be suicide. Look at how long no one has really dared to take this bull by the horns. We've heard complaints about this for decades but the problem of illegal immigration has only gotten worse. Truly, the first to cross the border were a more honest bunch eager for work so they could feed their families back home. Some found permanent work and stayed. They built their own communities right under our noses but kept themselves clean. So a few sneak in like mice but the rats, who see how easy it is, hide among the mice hoping to not be noticed. Someone had to take this on. If nothing else, this president might just get our lawmakers to sit up and pay attention even if a wall doesn't get built. It has to be done, IMO.
and when Trump and his DOJ tried to implement them, that whacked 9th Circuit Court stopped him, just as they did for the travel ban. Everything the liberal Dems want automatically goes to liberal courts across the country, comes to a screeching halt, and then eventually ends up in SCOTUS where Trump wins. It's ridiculous for you to say that he's writing his own rules...….
He offered nearly three times the number of DACA's Dems asked for and still got turned down by them....he stopped offering DACA because it's actually close to getting to SCOTUS now and I suspect that it will end up the same way DAPA did....and DACA and DAPA were rules that BO wrote on HIS own, and I haven't seen you complain about that.
Take a look at these pics Steven, all hand carved. You can see the drams in some of them. https://www.google.com/search?q=llechwedd+slate+caverns&client=firefox-b&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjm0bfF-fDfAhWrVBUIHYtWB0cQ_AUIDygC&biw=1366&bih=626
I'll stop here to avoid hijacking the thread too much.
We're dealing with a furriner here, Steven.
Too many drams and they cart you away?
The largest amount is the apothecary's measure, an eighth of an ounce. Not very much. I suspect it got to be used in drinking out of, 'I'll be just havin' a wee dram with the boys, dear.'
My answer is the same as yours - better government.
Difference: Yours has proven incompetent to give people what they need, and not even what they want. True peace and security, for openers.
Mine has, and will continue to do so. All citizenship is voluntary. No guns; no human army. Yet we prevail against human enemies and will continue to do so.
All this is in the book, the one with the letters and numbers, the one you refuse to read. You demand an answer, knowing you will refuse to look at it when it's given.
Have you no shame, madam? Have you no shame?
I'm going to assume that you mean 'worldwide governments' compared to only the USA's government. However, if YOUR government was as successful as you claim, you would be a much better influence over the world than you are because by your own admission in your post, anyone who doesn't do as you do are your 'enemies'....and enemies need/deserve to be gone. So how do you do that exactly? You have NO presence in any governments around the world that I know of so until you decide to 'infiltrate' those governments and have influence to change it, you have nothing but your idea of how to change things.
I'm not the one with 'willful ignorance'.....you can't make a difference until you are willing and ready to get involved and make the effort. Shame on you and your empty preachings and daily scoldings…….
