    I'm starting to get conflicting stories on this.

    No, Trump has tweeted that America will pay for the wall, and that Messico will pay us back, by sending us cheap labor.

    In a word.............................

    ...no.



    Because, for once, I agree with Tharvot. There will be no wall.

    Congress won't front the money to build an actual wall, though it may support securing the Border by other, smarter means. In which case, Trump will have to compromise to fulfill his promise in spirit, if not in literal fact.

    makes no difference to me and never did. With the money we waste in this country we have more than enough ways to pay for it. Hell the money planned parenthood isn't getting anymore will pay for half of it. As long as it gets built and we keep these scumbag murderers, rapists and leeches out of this country that's good enough for me.

    The GOP Congress will never vote to pay for the wall.

    Besides, the money saved from not subsidizing PP will be needed for increased welfare payments for children. Minority and poor children. Future democrats.

    I actually think he's going to convince them to build it. This is one of those "signature" type deals for Trump and if he's really committed to it he's gonna get it.

    The wall is already authorized, which I assume you agree to be true (2006 I think?), so that leaves only the money.

    The Congress has been asked to appropriate the money by April, and from what I have been reading it likely will.

    Now if they don't, Trump already has the money available to him the moment he is sworn in to office, and it's more than adequate to cover the cost, so it would simply be at his discretion to use it for the wall.

    It will be amusing listening to the Trumpsters tell us why the wall doesn't matter 2 years from now.

    Truth is don't we already have a wall over most of the border. Stats show illegal immigration is down and Obama deported more illegals than Bush. Trump will bump up the Border patrol, change the wall in a few places and claim to have solved the problem. But we will pay for it.

    But should the economy take off, the illegals will flock to the US again. The downturn has more to do with our economy than anything else.
