  1. Prolly not, Bush already had a wall initiative that extended the height of
    the border in some places. There’s no real wall to build.

  2. Dr Know nothing….? under Obama’s term… just like every other government
    in recent history……. they changed the way they measure statistics!!
    …for example, if a mexican person arrives at the US boarder and is than
    turned away, that is counted as a deportation! hence popular quote “Obama
    has deported 2.5 million people” ! 250 billion to build a wall? really? i
    have heard 25 billion quoted manytimes….. but of course none of this is
    ever going to happen anyway and nor should it… just good old
    electioneering, tell them what they want to hear and they will go for it

  3. If Trump made the same statement that Fox made. This creepy little beta
    male would be screaming “misogyny”.

  4. What about an electric fence with modern night time search light
    illumination, hi tech detection and drone surveillance devices ?
