    Did it ever occur to you silly this wall won't be built even if the $$ was available to build it? The vast majority of land that borders Mexico is privately owned. The Federal Government cannot simply take that land from the owners and build a wall on it. Using Eminent Domain laws to do it will be challenged in the courts on a case by case basis. George W Bush tried something like this 15 years ago, and many of these cases are still pending today (and not successfully either!)

    OH, by the way. If Mexico is going to pay for this wall, like your fearless leader promised 100+ times, then why is he trying to syphon off money from our own military budget to pay for it??

    You're not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you?? 🙄
