House to vote on Trump's $1.6B border wall request next week

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans are moving next week to fund President Donald Trump's $1.6 billion request to begin construction of his oft-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Aides said Tuesday evening that GOP leaders have decided to attach the money — to build 74 miles of fencing and levee wall in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas and near San Diego — to a spending bill for the Defense Department and a handful of other agencies like the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Then stop paying your federal taxes if this isn't the way you want to go with stopping Illegals.

But be ready to catch a flight for far away places if you do..

How many straight up lies has the President told now? No wall, no repeal, voter fraud...?

The great wall of Trump.
Another lie to put the screws to the American taxpayer.

The wall will never get built. Aside from being a very expensive solution and not particularly effective, it's not necessary.

Isn't there already a wall funding bill still around from the Bush days? I think the wall was even started at one time.

It's all bullshlt, and I'm tired of bullshlt. You want to stop people from coming here, and do it profitably, raid a few Tyson plants and construction sites. Prosecute both the employees and employers. Take away the perks. We should not be educating or feeding illegals or giving them jobs. Prosecute sanctuary anything. Aiding is illegal. Yet it's openly allowed.

It's all bullshlt.

I could care less who pays for the wall just as long as it gets built. Mexico would never voluntarily pay for a wall when it benefits from illegal immigration into the US.It would be expecting burglar to pay for your burglar alarm or a car thief to pay for your car alarm.


Trump could cut off all aid to Mexico.But that wouldn't be making Mexico pay for it.Trump could impose tariffs on Mexican goods ensuring that people don't buy Mexican goods thus cutting into the profits of those companies. He could also impose a massive tax on money wiring services to Mexico and money transfers to Mexican accounts seeing how Mexico makes a lot of money off of illegals sending money back home to Mexico.

I have said that for years, one big employer in cuffs on the evening news the illegal immigration thing would be over. I remember bringing it up somewhere else and they thought it was a horrible idea. No way for employers to tell etc...
