[In reply to "If Trump gets the wall in any form or fashion, it will be interesting to see what happens when...." by A Little Bit of Lenny, posted at 14:46:27 01/11/19]
: After the barrier is constructed, whatever that looks like or however many miles it actually covers, there will still be some who get through. The wall and associated mechanisms (drones, tunnel sensors, etc) isn't going to be 100% full proof. So there will still be criminals and drugs filtering through - albeit significantly/dramatically less. We will be safer overall. But...
: Today those pushing for the wall use the high profile stories of criminal activity and murders of Americans by illegals to make the case. Will the Democrats, in turn, use future events that happen as proof that the wall didn't work? "See? We built the wall and we still have crime and drugs. Trump failed!" Is that really a message that would make sense to promote? It sounds idiotic but the Dems hate Trump so much I could see them playing that angle.
