No, it means that even with walls, barriers, border patrol agents, dogs, x-ray systems and other technologies, that an incredible amount of contraband still enters this country on a daily basis. Building a wall along the entire southern border will again make no difference at reducing the amount of contraband that enters this country. Drugs are typically discovered at ports of entry for two reasons; 1) They are at population centers which means dealers are close to the demand, easy money. 2) Population centers are near highway systems so it's easier to transport contraband throughout the country.
People are idiots.
It is a fact that building a wall (was it El Paso?) decreased contraband some like 60 per cent. I say again, no hope.
There’s no down side to great border security, including barriers.
When the time comes that the Commie-socialists get their way, and becomes such an oppressive regime that they are unbearable, it may make it harder for us good guys to sneak out.
CBP Enforcement Statistics FY2018 | U.S. Customs and Border Protection The hard stuff, heroine, coke and meth comes through ports of entry, at a ratio of 4-10 to 1. Pot OTOH comes more over border. Hell pot legal now in a bunch of states and isn't a threat (unless you are Tucker Carlson) It makes sense because heroine coke etc is easier to hide. Putting millions of dollars of high value drugs in the hands of a mule across the border is highly risky.
Reducing contraband flow is just the icing on the cake. An extra. Bonus points.
Great. El Paso shares its border with one of the most violent cities on the planet so it was stupid for them not to have a wall in the first place. There is no doubt that a wall/barrier in certain locations along the border makes perfect sense, but a 21 foot high wall along the middle of nowhere Texas border surrounded by desert and mountains without a major city within 100 miles makes zero sense. No contraband or humans will ever make that crossing as there are numerous natural barriers. In fact, building Trump's wall along certain parts of the border will be nearly impossible because of terrain and lack of infrastructure to actually get equipment to these locations.
It's a robot and it hasn't been programmed very well.
So now a wall is okay? Sort of?
We know that contraband doesn't come through there because we never intercept any there. Infact, we don't even have to look there because there isn't any there so we don't even bother to look there. Heard about the mysterious animals called "Hide Behinds"? They are never seen because they are always hiding behind something. Indeed, not seeing them is proof positive that they exist.
Point to one post where I said I'm against a wall. There are much more effective ways to secure our border than building a wall across the entire Southern US, but no one wants to have that discussion because Trump is attempting to swing his d!ck and follow through on his primary campaign promise while the two demwits are "governing" purely off emotion to oppose Trump. The government is shutdown and both parties are stalemated strictly for selfish reasons.
Trump is speaking in simple generalities, which works when running for office. The “Wall” covers all border security options.
Really? Are you aware of how Miami was built? Who do you think dropped & caught all those square groupers? The fact is, even losing a high percentage of production to various means of confiscation, there’s a gigantic profit margin. Cheap production costs means the brute force method of high volume against high loss is a viable & highly profitable plan. Reported seizures at POE’s will always be higher than other locations because it’s harder to catch transport mules who don’t use them.
I'm still waiting for his answer, but ain't holding my breath that it will logical....just a bunch of talking points.
L-boy is the one that said no one on the left was promoting illegal entry into the country so keep that in mind when you are countering his lunacy.
That is all he ever does, post links to democrat talking points. He never has the first clue about the subject. No doubt he is getting them feed to him. He is probably one of those paid parrots. I used to get those when I was in college. It comes daily or weekly, arranged by topics, with quotes and links tontheir propaganda. It is why you can montage the statist controlled press and dim politicians and the all typically use the exact same words to describe something.
incorrect, legal pot is way more expensive than illegal pot. Unregulated pot is showing to be in issue still, in places where there is legal pot.
no one is suggesting that now, no one.
