When Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign in 2015 by saying "Nobody builds walls better than me", it was to say the least a questionable claim.

Again.

Thankfully Biden put a stop to the wall boondoggle.

Now he has to clean up after Trumps surrender deal with the Taliban.

This is what happens when you elect a con-artist to the office.

It only needed to be visible to placate the morons that supported him. The hell with environmental studies and adequate planning...just throw a shitake ton of money and mango lameo members that promised the wall will be bigly and good, they push a few kickbacks to him and everything will work out.

The dope was a putz, but he was smart enough to fool 73,000,000 idjuts.

Biden's plan is rehash of GWB's plan. Walls in strategic locations near ports of entry (they already exist so it's not controversial) and a massive Wall of Technology to hunt down border jumpers. When you switch it from a physical wall to a Tech Wall, you get widespread, bipartisan support.

50% of illegal aliens land legally at American airports then they just overstay their visas. We have been telling the Trumpfools that for years but they still think a wall will end illegal immigration....because they are stupid and believe what the con artist tells them.

Sort of the airport. Canada & Mexico have the highest # overstay rates. You don't have to climb a wall, you just walk across a bridge or checkpoint. The Border Control funding in the infrastructure bill has the NE and the South squabbling over whom gets what for their Tech Walls.

It turns out ignoring bedrock environmental laws may not have been the best choice for a multibillion-dollar construction project. Photos show former President Donald Trump's border wall in deep disrepair after summer monsoon rains literally blew floodgates off their hinges.

In the rush to build the wall, Trump sidelined environmental and cultural protection laws. Those laws are meant to protect the natural world and historically significant artifacts and sites. But they also serve the purpose of ensuring multibillion-dollar construction projects don't face catastrophic failures within a few years of being built.

Who could of predicted this? Ah yes, just about everyone.

Everything Trump touches turns to s***.

PS - Trump sued to build the wall where and how he did.

Experts? Ha! He ignored them. After all, no one knows more about any subject than he does!!

Immigration is going to continue as long as there is economic opportunity in the United State. If you don't want immigration then kill economic opportunity and it will stop. Is that really what you want though? America will be fine as long as people want to come here, when they don't that is when you should be worried about America. Miami was energized by immigration, if Largo, SD had the same luck they would be as rich as Miami is. Americans fear immmigrants because they fear being replaced by them but, I've lived down here in S. Florida for a very long time, I never had a problem ever finding a job, neither have my kids. But, and I do know this, none of us would have prospered here had Miami stayed the sleepy town I visited in the early 1960's. It became the biggest export hub to the Caribbean and Central and South America because of the immigrants. The only people really who are so adverse to immigration are those who don't think they can compete with immigrants so go learn Spannish or Portugese, get ready because they are still coming, like it or not.

"Nobody builds walls better than me, believe me."

The "believe me" always gives it away. Ha, parts of his wall look like they've been rotting away for a hundred years.

I'm sure you see this in Miami as well (I see it all over here):

Roofing, drywall, paint contractors with Trump/Republican bumper stickers and a crew of all illegal immigrants working for them.

I'm for a flowing, open border, much more liberal than the mainstream Democrat vision of Tech Wall.

GWB's plan was to fix immigration but he couldn't get congress to cooperate.

I have presented this argument before and I will do so again. Most Mexicans and also the people from Central and South America are descendants from Native Americans. They flowed accross the artificial boundary of our borders for many centuries following the seasons and the herds of bison, the fish in the rivers, etc. They aren't going to stop just because we build a wall, they aren't going to stop because we call them illegal and our employers will keep hiring them. We need their labor on farms, on roofs, and many other places. Our immmigration police aren't accomplishing anything that is beneficial to the United States any more than our DEA is.

Probably, one of the only things I ever agreed with him about was immigration.

20' wall? 21' ladder. And those master tunnel makers who'd recently built three under the wall within sight of the port of entry in McAllen, TX the CBP told Trump about during his visit.

Or battery powered saws. Or homemade hacksaws that cut through the new wall pretty easily.

Jail American contractors who knowingly hire undocumented workers for their cheap labor. Problem solved.

Unfortunately, his own party disagreed with him on immigration.

Poor Little Marco had to pretend he never joined the Gang Of Eight.

The feds need to just donate it to the citizens of Mexico to be reused as building materials. The scrap will be gone within weeks, and the sick joke will be over.

Sounds like a plan DarkV...They already done stole all the razor wire to fortify their own homes. Sometimes it's just easier to ride the burro in the direction it's heading.
