    Trump's Wall

    There are 1900 miles of border land with Mexico.
    There are 800 miles that have a current barrier - which took 7 Billion dollars to build and most of isn't a wall, it's fence, slats and in most cases, designed to stop cars, so it can be stepped over.

    Trump wants to build a 1900 mile wall for 5 Billion dollars.

    Stop me when I get to the part doesn't make sense

    Douchebaggery at it's finest. Living in the DC area for the past 20 years I know a LOT of fed employees who are suffering without a paycheck right at Christmas time. At least these people will eventually most likely get back-pay. I also know a LOT of federal contractors who are not getting paid and will not get back-pay. Dickhead will hold out until he gets his wall... looks like he wants to leave his legacy while he still has a little time left.
    I'm a fed but thankfully my office has a few weeks of funding available.

    Tell the Democrats to stop blocking the bill then.

    They virtually all said the same things the current administration is saying on stopping illegal immigration/border security in the past and only now changed their stance due to Trump agreed with them.

    No one believes it would only cost 5 bill to get it completely done.
    I am surprised you think Trump thinks that.

    I think Trump doesn't give damn about a wall, period. He had all but stopped talking about it, until Rush and Anne Coulter called him out on it, and then ALLLLLLL of a sudden, the Wall became a priority again. The wall is just fluff so he can get his way. It's about politics, not protection

    whats this attention on 'steel slats' instead of 'a wall'?

    if you have four inch poles thirty feet high (a guess) and they are close enough that a human cant get through then that is effectively a wall. the pointed tip makes it extremely difficult to get any kind of climbing device secured. and the fact that you can see through the slats makes it easier for long range monitoring for activity. seems like it would be a lot cheaper than a full wall anyway

    so who cares if its steel slats? why do they keep harping on that as if it wouldn't constitute a wall? id be ok with steel slats

    Trump has already tweeted designs on that exact thing. This could be the way to go to keep costs down.
