1. Looks like a barrier to me. (that is being patrolled.)

Lefty wants to play word games?

Sorry, you are going to have to do better than that.

2. A fence.

But Trump and his followers would call that a wall these days.

4. Obviously it's an immoral impediment to good people desiring to violate our laws.

Ms. Pelosi, tear down this wall!

(do I need that red thingy?)

6. What will be the additional cost to tear down

What currently exists as border barrier and replace it with nothing but wall.
Is this San Diego barrier also inadequate? Its about 15 minutes drive from my house. Of course you can ocean swim around it.

9. what a red herring.

Trump is looking for 234 miles of new wall.

If the current barrier is working it can stay

22. So the issue of whether something is works or not actually matters?

Whatever word we want to use?

What about surveillance by drones or electronic devices? What if those measures are more cost effective than concrete or steel walls in certain areas?

28. drones would only see people in the act of crossing...

so if they get arrested here in the USA, we can't just throw them back over the border.

Keep them out.

20. If you were honest....

you would show what the San Diego Border really looks like, not just a gate.

8. Gray area.

A chain link fence is never a wall.

THIS might be a bit more than a fence.

10. A fence or a wall is irrelevant

If we can get the laws changed to cover it by fire then a line of yellow tape will work.

That is not going to happen unfortunately so we need a high wall. It would be much cheaper with yellow tape and bullets but a high wall will stop the blood curdling screams from the left for doing the much cheaper former version.

13. .50 caliber gun turrets at 1000 foot intervals would make it so much better.

But call it whatever blows your skirt up.

14. I would say that is a fence.

You should have set it up as a poll. I would have voted fence.

16. i think the point is that it exists

if it is not working, maybe we need to beef it up in problem locations, but i've never understood the need for a "beautuful new wall."

24. I'd cut Donnie some slack on that one.

Presidential campaign promises are always full of hyperbole. Its just that some of Trump's supporters took him literally to mean a brand spanking new wall from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico. That's never going to happen, nor should it. What currently exists in many locations is just fine. In others, we do need a brand new fence/wall/barrier.
Eventually the pissing contest will end and there'll be a compromise. President Trump will win by getting beefed up border security walls/barriers/fences and the Democrats will win by stopping 1,954 miles of entirely brand new wall.

Your overlords, especially Pelosi think that it is immoral and should come down!

25. Nah

Pelosi thinks 1,954 miles of 30 foot high brand new wall would be immoral. No one in Congress has said a thing about the existing border barrier/wall/fence coming down.

29. Pelosi called walls immoral numerous times.

So she should (I never said she did) propose taking all walls down!

Read MY WORDS CAREFULLY!

21. For a group of people dead set against accurate terminology....

You sure are fixated on the specificity of this one.

I await your oncoming attacks on pronouns, firearms design and accessories, and the term illegal alien.

You and your kind are a joke, and it's gone on so long it's not funny anymore.

23. Haven't you noticed?

There's a debate going on in Washington D.C. at the moment over the semantics of the existing and proposed new border barrier.
Do try to keep up.

26. Oh, I am watching the kabuki/farce on Washington quite closely.

That you believe that the semantics are important...

Yeah, you keep up on that for me, k?
