    Because there are cheaper methods of securing the border, which will be more successful.

    The more effective ways to secure the border -- which Democrats could support -- include the use of modern technology, increased border personnel and better coordination with our southern neighbour.

    A physical barrier also doesn't address the illicit trafficking of people and narcotics or the issues surrounding visa overstays. The majority of illicit narcotics enter the United States via our land ports of entry, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration's 2016 National Drug Threat Assessment Summary. A more efficient use of limited tax dollars would be to invest heavily in state-of-the-art detection technologies and strengthen the US Customs and Border Protection's Container Security Initiative to mitigate illicit trafficking.

    It's a bandaid on the problem. A comprehensive approach is needed, not piecemeal fixes.

    Because they want the infiltration of anyone and everyone who wants to come here. They haven't thought things through. Parts of California already look like a bad third world country. 3/4 of the population of the planet is in poverty and has no education and very bad values. They won't all fit in the U.S. It's a simple matter of land mass. And without the values of most Americans, we are doomed. Haven't we experienced enough theft, rape, murder and - all crimes in the last few decades of massive immigration from those countries? I'd say way too much. We used to leave our doors unlocked and to pay for something - write a check. They were accepted. Now, we not only lock our doors but lock the windows, bar the windows, and we get one or more big dogs. Checks are accepted only in "some" places and not without a photo ID, matching address, phone number, and some background checking.

    Because walls were meant to come down or never be put up. Why divide a whole nation? You may as well do the same to isolate the entire USA from canada AND mexico.

    The Democrats are against the Republicans. It's the Republicans who are against the wall. 8^)

    Trump border wall was a totally empty promise. Trump had no idea what it would cost, where it would go, and how to get a big public works project like that even started.

    He said Mexico would pay for it, which just shows you how far from reality his mind was. Then he gave Congress basically an ultimatum--take it or leave it. They left it. Then he thought he could declare an 'emergency' and take money earmaked for other purposes. Nope, the courts won't let him.

    honestly.. their strategy is to promise groups and people free crap for a vote, free crap theyre going to pay for with working peoples money mind you.. flooding in dependent immigrants is a way to increase their voter base .. a wall means death to that little game, unless they can con people into shipping in muslims or something else ludicrous ..
