‘Of course’: Warren says she’s willing to spend taxpayer money to take down parts of border wall


During Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she is willing to spend taxpayer money to remove parts of the southern border wall built under the Trump administration.

Warren — who once called President Donald Trump’s border wall a monument to “hate and division” — was asked by a debate moderator if she would ask taxpayers to foot the bill to remove sections of wall between the U.S. and Mexico. In response, the progressive said she was open to the idea, and said the immigration crisis was “man-made.”

“If there are parts of the wall that are not useful in our defense, of course we should do it,” the Massachusetts lawmaker said Wednesday. “The real point here is that we need to stop this man-made crisis at the border. Trump is the one who has created this crisis, and he has done it in no small part by helping destabilize the governments even further in Central America.”

“He has withdrawn aid. That means that families have to flee for their lives, have to flee for any economic opportunity,” Warren continued.

Warren has increasingly shifted left on immigration since launching her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination. The Massachusetts senator said in June that she supported decriminalizing illegal immigration — an act that is a federal misdemeanor for first-time offenders and a federal felony for repeat offenders. During a Latino-centered event earlier in November, she said she was open to the idea of putting a moratorium on deportations altogether.

Warren went on during the Wednesday debate to describe a time she visited a detention center on the southern border.

“You know, when I found out our government was actually taking away children from their families, I went down to the border. I went down there immediately,” she said. “I just hope everyone remembers what this looks like. There’s like a giant Amazon warehouse filled with cages of women, cages of men, and cages of little girls and little boys.”

At this point in her description, her voice appeared to break as she spoke about the personal story of a woman who was forced to flee her country.

“I spoke to a woman who was in the cage of nursing mothers, and she told me she’d given a drink to a police officer and that the word had come down from the gangs that she was helping the police. She knew what that meant. She wrapped up her baby and she ran for the border. We need to treat the people who come here with dignity and with respect,” she said.

“A great nation does not separate children from their families. We need to live our values at the border every single day,” Warren continued.

The completion of a wall between the U.S. and Mexico has been Trump’s most coveted campaign issue since entering politics. Since he entered the White House, his administration has built roughly 76 miles of new barriers, and aims to build well over 400 miles by the close of 2020.

Somebody stinks like she has a deal going with the drug cartels.

My opinion, so no snowflake rebuttals will be entertained.


Just a side note for those who still believe the trespassers are coming here for asylum. Anybody notice how a lot of those discovered try to run away from the police?

the travesty is most trump supporters don't realize what's been spent on mostly refurbished fencing and a scant few feet of new

like we tried to tell them not all the border is buildable. and where we needed fence we already had it.
lack of a wall wasn't the issue
trump has deported a fraction of illegals Obama did
but trump is feeding more in jails so there's that

Counting people who were turned away at the border when previous presidents didn't doesn't mean Obama actually deported more people than other presidents did. The claim Obama deported more people than any other president is a lie perpatrated by illegal alien testicle lickers in office to make it seem they were actually doing their job of securing our borders and deporting illegals so that they can push for amnesty. Obama granted a defacto amnesty to everyone who was allegedly brought here as kids.Obama had Eric Holder sue states that enacted anti-illegal immigration laws while ignoring sanctuary states and cities in order to make it a whole lot easier for people to stay here illegally.

Lack of a wall is the issue.People can easily scale fences.We know this because illegal alien testicle lickers like to post videos of people climbing over crappy fences on the border so that they can somehow prove that a actual walls or even well built fences won't work. Illegal alien testicle lickers in office didn't oppose the wall because we had walls in terrain that was easily passable.They opposed the walls because they stop or slow down illegal immigration. We need walls in the inhospitable desert areas of our border. Only 649 miles of our border has a fence or wall on it.You can't honestly tell me that the other thirteen thousand miles of our southern border is impassable and that is why there isn't a wall. We also need more boots on the ground securing our southern border.


Warren like the other democrats running are illegal alien testicle lickers. That is why they want to decriminalize illegal crossings and want free health care for illegals and opposed any border wall funding. Like other illegal alien testicle lickers before her she wants amnesty for illegals. This is why she is willing to spend money to tear down a border wall.

No, we don't have border wall everywhere we need it.

Roughly one-third of the U.S.-Mexico line, or 654 miles, has security fencing, according to extensive government reporting on the subject.

In some ways, that number is misleading: There are just 354 miles of pedestrian barrier. The rest is vehicle barrier, low-lying posts designed to stop cars and trucks. “Vehicle fencing has been effective in slowing and prohibiting drive throughs, vehicle fencing is not designed to slow or deter illegal entrants from entering or smuggling contraband,” a 2017 report from the Government Accountability Office states.

Put another way, more than 80 percent of the boundary has no man-made obstacle to stop people crossing on foot.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.azc.../amp/647521001

How do most illegal aliens cross the Southern border? On foot. So, Warren would be tearing down barriers, inviting them in.

The raw number of miles of border fencing is misleading. Some of it is easily breached and some is set back from the border. Once the illegal alien sets foot on US soil most can assert asylum claims, a free ticket to the interior where the likelihood of deportation is low and it will be even lower if Democrats get their wish to abolish ICE.

But wait, her policies would act as a magnet for more illegal immigrants with free healthcare and welfare state benefits paid for by the US taxpayer. You may not be able to send your kids or grandchildren to college or technical school due to the higher taxes necessary to fund Warren's grand schemes but the sacrifice is necessary because we are responsible for the failed economies and lack of civil order in Central American and elsewhere. If we had just poured billions more in aid into these brutal dictatorships it would have transformed them into a socialist paradise.
