    59 percent of Americans, including 66% of Independents oppose building a wall along the U.S-Mexico border. Trump and the GOP are on the wrong side of public opinion here, and their situation will only get worse with every day the governments is shut down. In addition, most Americans would rather spend the $5 billion Trump is demanding for the border wall on infrastructure, education, or healthcare.

    Sorry Trump supporters. House Democrats can stand firm on denying Trump's wall money, they have the backing of most voters.

    After his quote stating he'd "take the mantle" on the government shutdown; it'll be fun to watch his squirming. Any ideas on how he'll cave without appearing to cave?

    It'll be a few miles of railings.
    Beautiful railings.

    The Wall is a stupid idea. 4 year old kids could come up with a better plan.

    How about, instead, we take that money and give it to the Border Patrol, for more and better equipment to do their jobs, hire more people to do those jobs and maybe a raise so they have more incentive to do their jobs?

    Wrong! Illegal immigration on our southern border is lower than it's been in decades. It might help if you would do a minimum of research before swallowing everything "The Donald" tells you, hook, line, and sinker.

    But don’t you see, as we mature, we are learning to control the border, to keep our country sovereign. We weren’t equipped ( technology, intel, etc.) in the past to do the great job of holding back the invasion like we are now. I will admit, there is NO question you are way ahead of me in the way of absorbing websites with your breakfast! Can’t cause I Gottago exercise to be able to fight off South American marauders. Hey, did they catch the illegal Mexican or whatever he is who murdered the wonderful police officer? I sent my $100 to his wife’s gofundme campaign. Did you? Oh........

    Most illegal immigration to the U.S. occurs through abuse of visas, such as for example Donald Trump's third wife. How does the wall protect against illegal immigrants such as Melania Trump?

    I'm in the Southwest and I lose if the wall goes up so maybe your logic is flawed
