Agreed. Mexico has an obligation to protect the border as well. They do so on their southern border by accepting bribes from Coyotes bringing people in so long as their final destination is the USA.

But on their northern border they do not worry about Americans sneaking in to enjoy the benefits of a Mexican welfare system. Mostly because Americans could not do that if they wanted to. That said however, Mexico should try and protect their relations with the USA by eliminating the criminal activities on their side of the line.

They can't, and they won't, because the Mexican government IS the much of the criminal activity on their side of the line.

Build the wall. Or... more effectively and cheaper...; incarcerate any who come across or aid those who come across. That should include "EMPLOYERS."

If Democrats take control of the House they will control the appropriations process. Expect Democrats to focus on impeachment and little else.

Hopefully this is just a start and its actually a good wall. Not the ****ty fence that previous administrations put up to give the appearance of cracking down on illegal crossings.
"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”—Theodore Roosevelt

If anyone on the left needs to know why a wall is needed, read the following article.

Local authorities eventually confirmed that 273 corpses had been dumped in the trailer after the relentless pace of violent crime left the local morgue without any space for new arrivals. For nearly two weeks, the truck had been drifting around the suburban hinterland of Mexico’s second city.

As the scandal escalated, Jalisco officials were forced to admit that they had been using stationary trailers to store bodies for at least two years.

The macabre discovery came on the country’s national holiday, and seemed to offer a damning comment on the state of the nation: in the 12 years since Mexico launched its militarised war on drugs, more than 200,000 people have died and another 35,000 gone missing.
It would make sense to keep that level of violence out of this country.

To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead - Thomas Paine

A lie doesn't become truth, a wrong doesn't become right, and Evil doesn't become good, just because it is accepted by the majority. - Booker T Washington
