  • IMO the federal government is paying faith-based organizations to house/relief for the illegals.  Federal wants the USA to have complete take over. Wall or no wall, this has been going on a very long time.  If there is a wall, illegals dig under the wall.  Drugs have tunnels between Mexico and USA.  Buses bring them in.  So, now what?

  • So many people are hurting right now.... it’s upsetting...
    We've reached day 28 of this government shutdown and this next week will mark a month of mostly middle-class federal workers working for free, missing bill payments, possibly defaulting on their houses and apartments.

    Meanwhile, Congress gets lifetime pensions and a high six-figure salary. And they've done NOTHING!

    Middle-class America cannot miss a paycheck. 76% of this country cannot miss a paycheck and expect to still have their act together, and it's partially Trump's fault. Partially Congress too. Visa overstays have exceeded illegal border crossings for some time now and they will build tunnels under the wall. Maybe the solution to make the border safer is far more complex than we think, and it's not so black and white. I genuinely don't know.

    But there should have been a fully-funded government in 24 hours. Not 28 days and counting.

    I would not place any blame whatsoever on the president, any and all blame lies squarely on the swamp, Pelosi and Schumer in particular. The below meme is clearly true.

    My opinion is that if a wall wasn't effective anyway, the left wouldn't be so against it. I certainly don't believe that it's the cost that's holding them back. They'd happily spend 50x that much if it gave them something they wanted, but not if it involves building even part of a physical barrier.

  • Here is the link for We The People Will Fund The Wall. When I saw this yesterday afternoon, it was at about $8.2 million from, I think 160,000 people. Now, less than 24 hours later, it is at about $12.4 Million from 203,000 people.
    It was almost certain that this money would be refunded when the fundraiser didn't reach it's goal of $1B. Now, they are letting those who donated "opt in" to using the funds to privately build segments of the wall. The updates are at the original link.

  • A good break down of what it's all about - except toward the end where he slams the Church.
