    So Butthole is claiming illegals have to go around the wall to get in, ... so we must tear them down.

    He's as retarded as AOC. He must be looking for votes?

    Build the wall. If they can't cross the border, we don't have to waste money keeping the few who will show up for their hearings.
    No asylum. If they want to come here, they can wait in line with those who come here legally.
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    Maybe the leftist media would be happier if El Paso had more crime.

    They can't enjoy making President Trump's point by repeatedly telling us it's one of the safest cities in America. The Washington Post is eager to pull an Acosta, with its headline pronouncing "No Crisis Exists" where there is a border wall.

    It's almost as if … walls work.

    But not if Trump says they do. "Crime has been falling for decades" they say, and it has "nothing to do with" the wall separating it from Ciudad Juarez.

    "Texas city U.S. safest, despite Mexico drug war next door," Reuters reported in December 2010, after new fencing was completed a year before.

    What could possibly have helped keep El Paso safe?

    "Aside from a few rounds that have struck city hall and a building at the University of Texas at El Paso campus this year, violence has not spilled over the border's concrete and steel fences, although residents face mortal danger when they step across the river into Ciudad Juarez," Reuters reported.

    Jessica Vaughn of the Center for Immigration Studies noted in March 2009 that El Paso was the safest border city, thanks to its border barrier.

    "One key factor in that status has to be the large Border Patrol presence and the wall," she wrote.

    The liberal media keeps bringing up 1993 as when crime in El Paso started to decline. Well, what happened in the decades since?

    Vaughn noted in 1993 the "average number of apprehensions per day in the El Paso sector was well over 1,000." On a single day alone, the Border Patrol apprehended 1,400 illegal aliens. By 2009, the sector was down to just 38 daily apprehensions.

    "Before it was constructed, one of the main highways west of the downtown area, Paisano Drive, was dubbed ‘the most dangerous highway in America,'" Vaughn explains. "Thugs would cross regularly from the Mexican side and place old sofas and other obstacles in the roadway to stop cars, whose passengers would then be robbed, assaulted and/or raped."

    The media won't much care about that fact—they're more than happy to downplay sexual assaults in their pursuit to "get Trump." But what did law enforcement credit for less crime in El Paso?

    "Sheriffs in the outlying areas report similar drops in crime, and unequivocally credit the wall," Vaughn wrote. "Assaults on Border Patrol agents, which had been climbing, were down 49 percent in 2008."

    "The wall is an obvious and indispensable ingredient in border control in this area," Vaughn concluded. "The first fence was installed in downtown El Paso in 1967, and it is still standing, although reinforced by more barriers."

    That could explain why crime has been dropping for decades. In 2008 the El Paso Times, which is now the basis for all the "fact-checks" trying to disprove Trump's point about the city's declining crime, reported on the new border construction.

    "The overall goal is to be able to impede illegal immigrants and the smuggling activity that comes with that at times," Border Patrol-El Paso Sector spokesman Doug Mosier told the paper.

    After the El Paso wall was built, the crime rate there increased.

    Center for Immigration Studies = Right wing, anti-immigration hate group. No wonder people like you believe them.

    The crime rate in El Paso INCREASED after the wall was built.

    Another failure for you, Appalachia.

    It's truly stunning how they can have such giant blind spots in their logic process.

    He sounds like he's chock full of rhetoric. I didn't hear anything he said that wasn't a worn out phrase.

    The Berlin Wall was built to keep the East Berliners In East Berlin.

    The wall on the Mexican border is to keep illegals (non-citizens), drugs, drug dealers, human traffickers of women and children and MS-13 from entering our country illegally.
