    So, you flew along the border, spent what, maybe a few seconds on every mile and you didn't see anything, so nothing is happening? Are you really that stupid??? Most illegals try to cross in the dark. Most illegals can hear a helicopter coming from miles away and would naturally think it was part of the border patrol and so would hide. There was so much propaganda in that short segment that I will have to DETOX my brain for a week just to get it out!!! But why would I expect USA today, a huge medi...

    +Raven Aponi Staddel Wow, amazing reply! So much information there, thank you!!! I hadn't even thought about what they were using for toilets. In the desert you would think they would do it on dry land cause it would be dried out in hours, but using the river? That is disgusting!!! I heard so far this fiscal year that 303,000 people have been apprehended... how many got across without being caught? I had heard that people didn't bother to lock their doors on their houses when the left because the...

    +Raven Aponi Staddel AND rather than focus on immigration reform and e verify WHICH WOULD SOLVE 90 % OF THE PROBLEM TMW AND WOULDN'T COST A DAM DIME.... we focus on a wall THAT WILL COST BILLIONS...ugh. SICKENINNG !!!! I TELL YOU WHAT, IF THEY DONT GET A FREE RIDE WHEN THEY COME HERE ILLEGALLY ??... THEY WOULDN'T COME HERE NOW WOULD THEY ?? PRETTY SIMPLE REALLY. BUTTTTT....TRUMP WANTS HIS EGO WALL...MEANWHILE, EXPLOITS ILLEGALS FOR CHEAP LABOR AT HIS COUNTRY CLUBS, HOTELS AND GOLF COURSES......

    They mentioned in this video that they seen no illegal crossing, drug and no drug activity. my guess would be if you are crossing illegally or smuggling drugs this would be done at night time when the risk are lower.

    They saw no illegal crossings because in this video...Oh wait a minute the people who wanted to cross illegally were camera shy they didn't want to give an interview...they need their make up artist to get them ready before they can appear on camera and then for their mug shot after!

    No need to fly over the border. Google Earth is your friend. You can fly the entire distance virtually. Hwy 2 is an asphalt road that runs much of the border. You can see the existing border wall from Hwy 2 using Google street view. See for yourself, don't let the media form the context of your opinion.

    Yes, I suppose that they are faking the landscape out of liberal bias. God, so much of the right is utterly mindless.

    100% correct . That guy had me annoyed with him . Just another leftist against the wall and trying to put ideas in the heads of the weak .

    I'm pretty sure the POTUS considers the mountains and deep valleys natural borders.5 billion will not cover a wall through deep rivers and over huge mountains already deeper and higher than the wall wanted. Common sense has to come into play at sometime people. Come on.He pretty much wants that wall where they get in easily ie: the wonky fence.

    Most rational people would think that but Trump is not rational and neither are his devotees.

     (Feb 20, 2019)

    Yes i get it..what i don't understand is his reasoning. Mexicans coning over the border havent broken america in all these yrs....certain presidents/ other pilitical leaders/ americans. Not being angry just conversation.

    if our goverment stopped giving all the freebies to these ilegals they would have no reason to come here

    +Michael Kagan Research this just a tiny bit Michael Kagan and you will see who is the ignorant one here. Yes, farmers hire them as well as other industries and there are laws against that but no one enforces them. However, not all of the million who come in work, they have babies and live off the tax payers.

  • Michael Kagan

     (5 days ago)

    They come to work for low wages paid by American businesses. If they did not employ them, they wouldn't be here. It is not about "freebies" you ignoramus.

    I've only begun watching this video and I can tell already this is pure propaganda against the wall that Trump wants and I want.

    If people are going to speak about this issue, let’s be precise. No one at any time said immigration was bad. No one stands for eliminating that, nor does anyone “hate immigrants.” Where you people go wrong is understanding definitions. Immigrants are legal. They immigrate to the USA under an immigration system— that being a controlled system of knowing who is entering, where, and how long. People who cross the border at a location unknown to border authorities, meaning not at a border crossing, ar...

    Lightn'bug That was in response to the other persons post. Please read my post in response to it for clarification. Also, the law on asylum may allow guilty people into the country as does our criminal justice system (allowing guilty people to be assumed innocent). That’s the way our government was structured. We’re not a 3rd world society.
