    No that that's no pressure. That's certain vulnerable members having an excuse to give their constituents. If you see Senators caving, then that's pressure.

      If there isn't some progress there it will hurt the turnout with the base some. I think he realizes this and will hold out for a while and then use an emergency order if he has to where they will Judge shop to get that halted for a while. He has to do that at minimum.

        3rd century solutions? You don't understand what they are actually trying to do on the border. Have you ever wondered why the real subject matter experts on this topic, the US Border Patrol rank and file, are in favor of this project? I value their opinion far more than some pundits or politicians. I have a fair bit of experience and knowledge about the issues there as it tied in to my former job, and yet (as Butters would say), I still know almost nothing compared to the USBP agents. In short this is about strengthening certain hot spots or choke points. Hopefully you realize no one is trying to build a great wall of China type thing from the Pacific to the Gulf.

          That statement in one word is simply "bullchit". You have got to do better than using nebulous phrases like "smart".

          If our immigrants voted majority Republican, border security funding would be tenfold, heck maybe one hundred fold.

                3500 B.C.

                The first wheels were not used for transportation. Evidence indicates they were created to serve as potter's wheels around 3500 B.C. in Mesopotamia—300 years before someone figured out to use them for chariots. The ancient Greeks invented Western philosophy…and the wheelbarrow.

                    He point blank offers to open the government, and Nancy said no. Full proof that ***** has been lying for two plus weeks, saying they would 'negotiate' after the government was reopened, when it is now proven she never had the intent to do so.

                    If the American people aren't smart enough to see through this bull**** and vote the House back red in 2020, our Republic is finished.

                      The buzz words "smart, reasonable, common sense" make it sound like they support it when they really don't.

                        You forgot "comprehensive"... it fits in front of all those and makes them even smarter, more reasonable, and definitely full of common sense. ;)

                          IMHO about 60% of Americans want the wall and more want the borders tightened up. Just like voting for Trump was hush hush. Many people do not dare talk about it for fear of being labled racist.

                            As for the anchor baby issue. Well I would guess over 90% want this sham shut down. It is idiotic!

                              I think you are on to something, the Dems as a whole aren't opposed to smart border security they are opposed to Trump.

                                There are four core tenants and all must be in place in order to establish physical security in any environment.

                                360 degrees of physical impediment
                                Effective surveillance
                                Response/interdiction capability
                                Prediction capacity

                                A wall, fence, barrier, mountain, ocean, etc whether natural or man-made is needed in order to establish security. Period.

                                This is not opinion or politics or talking points. It is the foundational principle for establishment of effective security.

                                Fools that make claims like "walls don't work" are not serious people and should be ignored.

                                    The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
