this is straight up amnesty, one step at a time.
Another Republican idea converted into a conspiracy theory.
In response to newman09's comment:
Millions of instant new democratic voters. They don't want the border completely closed off; they want their future voters to keep filtering in.
No wall is going to stop immigration. And if it did, they'd just switch to rafts.
Has it really not occurred to you that maybe some of the people opposing a wall think that it's a pointless endeavor? They are constantly having to repair breaches. The only way to make it work is to have constant patrols up and down its entire length, at which point the cure probably costs more than the disease.
Oh and, why would Republicans be forever unable to appeal to that demographic, anyway?
I don't care if it's a wall or done with patrolling, just do it. We have the technology and the ability to seal the border if we want to, could be done tomorrow, if we want. So let me bounce the question back to you, why do you think generally Democrats are not as much in favor of securing the border, and generally Republicans are more for securing the boarder?
Democrats are big on etitlements, they want their free stuff, money, tuition, cell phones, etc. So they are told if you want to keep these things, vote Democrat, and the vast majority who vote, do. The Democrats know this, I'm pretty sure you know this too.
