Silly rabbit…you are proving my point. They were already given money, and what they did with it didn’t do anything to help make things better. Now, you must keep in mind that the border is now more secure than it has been in decades, with no more wall and better technology making it so, but that is a different talk for a different thread…but back to my original point…why would we give them more when they haven’t finished wasting the first batch we gave them? I made the analogy in another thread that its like sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, getting huge portions of everything on the table, not finishing that plate, and then asking someone to make you another plate.
You wanna actually address the problem of illegals in this country? Start dealing with overstayed visas, as they are the vast majority of people here illegally. Its not dudes crossing into San Diego in the dead of the night, no matter how badly the President wants you to believe it is.
Oh, and the 10% thing matters because it goes back to my original point of asking for more when you haven’t done what you were supposed to do with what you already received. Its not really that hard for people who are paying attention.
Its cute that you believe he actually wants the wall done. I have stated many times already…the fight is what he wants. He wants the appearance of caring about someone other than himself without actually having to go to the trouble of actually caring about someone other than himself. If he got the wall built in the next week and it didn’t accomplish what he contended it would, that would actually be more damaging to his legacy than appearing to fight the meanie Democrats and not getting it done, since he could simply blame them for his not fulfilling his campaign promise. On the other hand, fulfilling that promise and it not working any better than before…talk about egg on his face.
They had 2 years where they couldn’t be stopped from doing it, and they didn’t do it. Its pretty simple to understand why.
Talk about playing politics.
