    It's an emergency for Trump.
    He has to save face for his 30% voter base.

    If he caves to Pelosi, his image as a tough negotiator melts away.

    Promises kept !!
    Even dumb promises !!

    it's a broken promise.
    a 5 billion wall is not a wall (it won't be nearly enough unless he's making the wall 1 meter high) and 5 billion funding from american taxpayers is not Mexico paying for it.

    Correct.
    And his assertion that Mexico is paying for it through the renegotiated NAFTA deal (yup, that's what I'm calling it) is a load of crap !!

    It will still take $$$$ out of the economy even if it's tax revenue out of increased economic activity coming out of the new deal.
    It is coming out of tax revenue !!
    And that has to go through the political process.
    Just like funding for bridges and roads.

    Unless the Donald will say that Mexico is also paying for road repairs in Montana. 😛

    Back on topic:

    There you go. Facts, figures and statistics.

    - There is no Southern border crisis.
    - Illegal immigration in the US has generally been dropping since 2000.
    - Most peope residing in the US have over-stayed their visums.
    - More Canadians than Mexicans.
    - most terror suspects apprehended at airports.

    Now, for the love of my rationality, let’s talk about something else.
