    Yup and already his handlers are on him: "Any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain," --Sean Hannity.

    Sad.

    If he didnt agree you would attack him over the shutdown

    But he did agree which avoided the shutdown and you attack him for that instead

    So you are not fooling anyone

    The worst. Democrats had already offered 1.3 billion for border security in early January so with all his bluster and the shutdown he only got 700 million more.

    Little math update here. They agreed on 1.375 billion and Democrats offered 1.3 billion in January. So he only got 75 million more that the Democrats offered in January.

    Loser!

    Giving him 55 miles out of 2000 miles he demands practically guarantees another shut-down, but if he gets 55 miles in 2 years, then obviously the wall will be a broken promise, just like the "mexico will pay for it" part.

    No, it peaked in the 1980s, and quickly dropped to about a quarter since then, and it has maintained the 25% of the peak for a long time.

    Don't buy into Trumps "worse than ever before" rhetoric. Practically nothing he says is accurate or factual.

    There are no reliable numbers for that

    But uber leftwing Gallop did a poll in Latin America and found 42 million shoeless hispanics who want to move here

    We were never going to win the border battle. To democrats, these aren't illegals, they are a new source of voters to be exploited. They will migrate to large sanctuary cities where their needs will be provided for and they can then march and bitch for higher wages. I think Trump should take what he can get and use the military to supplement as much as he can. I would love to see CA tear down their border wall and donate all that fine material to the rest of us who understand walls work.
    This map says it all.

    I am just guessing

    but knowing how spineless senate republicans are I think trump can no loner count on them

    That was his problem during the shutdown and it would be his problem if he declares a national emergency

    You are correct which is why I say Trump should take everything he can get from either party. Small victories are great anytime you can get them, His appointing dozens and dozens of judges is a LONG term win that will have a far greater impact on illegals than anything done on the border and the lefties are not even aware that is going on while they complain about Melania's choice of shows. $$ new judges just last week alone. BTW, where is RBG?

    Immigration has very little to do with the actual facts of the matter. The Wall is meant to be largely symbolic, a giant badge of American xenophobia triumphant, showing the entire world that we now only tolerate the Master Race here. Should it ever be built the next project will be to melt down the Statue of Liberty to replace it with a giant golden swastika.

    I'd say they are far from reaching a deal that is veto proof.



    But dope springs up damn near everyplace.

    Maybe don't call other people 'illiterate' in a post full of spelling errors, including the word 'illiterate'.

    Irony.

    has nothing to do with nationalities of other people, it's about stopping illegal entry, the so-called immigrants that wish to enter the usa, need to follow our rules of law, simple as that, but loonie leftie wants it to be a race issue for inflammatory reasons & to get ill-informed people mad at trump & the usa in general... only weak minded blind faithers fall for that propaganda...

    anywho, congress has yet to vote on that proposal, that's all it is... a proposal to excite the weak blind faithers...

    You must remember the whole GOP plan since Nixon is to fool the masses, they found a treasure trove of stupid and ignorant people to vote against their own best self interests.......
    This just proves and reinforces it!...very sad indeed!
