A Useless Wave

Few things are more ridiculous than this bickering over 55 miles of the wall as opposed to 255 miles. If you agree that 55 miles make sense, then why oppose the whole thing? It’s ridiculous.

Truly, what has the much vaunted blue wave produced than a bunch of dumb social media posturers provoking ridiculous scandals.

No, it hasn’t been that long but what’s the likelihood these clowns will suddenly develop a conscience and grow a brain and would start working instead of self-promoting?

  1. “Border Patrol’s response time in some areas is measured in hours to days. If your response time is measured in hours to days, then a wall is actually not a physical barrier. But where there’s cities, where there’s urban-to-urban contact, some kind of physical barrier makes sense, because it helps Border Patrol increase their response time because of the amount of time it takes to go over, go under, things like that.” That’s from Republican Congressman Will Hurd, whose district in Texas includes 820 miles of the border.

    So this would be one reason why a wall makes sense in some places and not in others.

    From an interview with Hurd: Trump’s border crisis is a “myth,” Hurd tells Rolling Stone, and a wall made of cement or steel slats is a “third-century solution to a 21st-century problem.”

    “What I always say is building a wall from sea to shining sea is the most expensive and least effective way to do border security,” Hurd says.

    1. 20 million people living in the shade of illegality, marginalized and terrified. This gentleman might believe it’s no big deal but I don’t think it’s all that unreasonable to see it not only as a crisis but as a catastrophe. These are millions of people. Millions. Permanently terrified and marginalized. Because “we need workers.” Of course, we have plenty of workers but the one “we need” are easily exploitable and terrorized.

      As for the wall being expensive, I’m sure it’s less expensive than rebuilding every building in the US. Who cares about expensive any more?

      This fellow is servicing his rich donors who need cheap labor that will never organize and stand up to exploitation.

      1. The very first sentence of this article is a lie. The Congress was Republican for the first two years of the Trump presidency. And it didn’t approve the wall. Republicans have been, for 30 years, starting with Reagan, the party of open borders. Because it’s a neoliberal goal #1. Now the most progressive among the Democrats have joined them in aggressively advancing neoliberalism. But the Republicans started it and never wavered.
