Of note we already have almost 700 miles of vehicle and pedestrian fencing along our Southern boarder where studies established it would be effective. There are no studies that support fencing along all of our border with Mexico, about half of which is privately owned, that Trump has proposed.

Simple question:

Should the Congress back Trump's $70 billion "wall" with an initial down payment of $5.7 billion for 2019 or should Congress take the time to study the most cost effective means of providing border security and provide funding for that?

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.
