Democrats can’t seem to wrap their heads around the fact that American taxpayers are tired of subsidizing non-Americans.
The Left offers up excuse after excuse for why the wall won’t work, but all of their arguments are as easy to hop over as California’s border fence.
Liberals have never cared about fiscal responsibility, but suddenly the Left is acting concerned that the wall’s $20 billion price tag is too high a price for taxpayers to pay.
But we spend $100 billion on illegal immigrants every year, and the wall will cost substantially less.
It will also stop future illegal immigrants from coming here, saving us billions in the long term. How’s that for fiscal responsibility?
One state is particularly anxious to get the wall built and completed, so they are following through with the President’s plan, and are now officially more than halfway complete.

Construction workers building President Donald Trump’s long-promised wall along the United States/Mexico border have made significant progress in New Mexico, The Associated Press reported.
The project, approved last year, began April 9 and will cover 20 miles in total.
The construction is taking place west of Santa Teresa, near New Mexico’s state line with Texas.
As of Aug. 8, more than 8,100 panels spanning over 11 miles had been constructed, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.
Construction involves replacing the miles of barriers currently in place with a fence made with thick steel posts.
Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull of the El Paso sector praised the wall for its impenetrability.
“It’s going to be harder to get over, harder to get through, harder to get underneath. It’s going to have a five-foot, anti-scaling plate at the top,” Hull said.
While the strength of the wall is encouraging, the length leaves something to be desired. More of the wall could be constructed if Congress would stop withholding the necessary funds.
But at least we’re making some much-needed progress in the battle for our border. Do you agree?
