4. I was just listening to the border patrol agents in a meeting with Trump on the border. ...

They feel our nation needs improved border security including a wall.

Therefore we don’t all agree.

The Democrats should stop playing their stupid political games and give Trump the money for his wall. After all they were for the wall before they were against it. The Democrats simply don’t want Trump to win on this issue and the hell with what’s good for the country.

7. How about a little bit of the wall, where it might make the most sense

And other things that are just as, if not more, effective as providing border security as more walls.

Well I know the reason why not. That would never satisfy the obsessives.

Building Trump’s Wall? 6 things to know about the U.S.-Mexico border

2. TRUMP’S REAL VOW

Even Donald Trump hasn’t maintained that the U.S. should build a wall along the entire southern border

Originally President Trump said he wanted a solid wall, 35 to 40 feet high, but later he backed away from that and said it could include other types of barriers like fencing. The executive order he issued this past week says: “Wall shall mean a contiguous, physical wall or other similarly secure, contiguous and impassable physical barrier.”

But his order does not specify a wall or fence along every mile of the border. Even Trump himself, as early as last February, acknowledged in an MSNBC interview: “We don’t need 2,000 (miles), we need 1,000 because we have natural barriers…” There are also other prohibitions, such as a decades-old treaty with Mexico that bans any barriers from blocking the flow of rivers. And the Tohono O’odham Nation Native American reservation, which resides on border territory, has already said no to Trump’s plan. To override that tribal resistance, the Trump administration would need a congressional bill condemning the land and taking it from the reservation’s trust.

The executive order calls for, within 180 days, a study assessing southern border security, the geophysical and topographical aspects, and the availability of federal and state resources.

The new President is relying on authority granted by the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which mandated about 700 miles of barriers, of which at least 653 primary miles have been completed. The Act called for double fencing along most of the border, but only 36 miles of double fencing stands was ever finished. That overall project stalled because Congress did not fund the final phase.

6. We do not agree

After we lock down the southern border we can talk about the shutdown.
