The Wall Isn't Working: Kansas City Immigrant Communities Grow Stronger

At the outset of his administration, the most strident Prez Trump supporters hoped to limit immigration both illegal and legal. Hardline GOP policies help establish "The Wall" and continue to fund rogue effort amid a dearth of progress on government backed efforts.

A bit of local evidence on the immigration debate, this hopeful article offers a glimpse at local communities that have endured the crackdowns of the Prez Trump era . . . Checkit:

^^^^Coocoo coocoo loony left alert!

100 miles down and 400 more announced this morning, sorry to burst your bubble dummy but if you watch the number rated news station for nearly three years now you would know the truth, I know it hurts admitting you’re wrong but there still hope you can move past your tds and live a fruitful life! Take that first step, you can do it!

The wall is going up and the numbers crossing are dropping. KCK known as handout city is the reason the illegals flock there. They go to the places that hand out the most freebies with little effort from the illegals. KCK wants these people there it helps with the money they get from the feds. Another democratic city going down the shitter.

KCK for the most part is under Sharice Davids watch and that right there says a lot about the raising numbers.

3 years, 100 miles. Really? You're proud about that? Well, that just sucks.

The border is 2,000 miles long. It's going to take 60 years to make any real progress at this rate.

Most of the 100 miles completed thus far have been replacements of old fences. It's replacement wall making no difference. The 400 announced (this morning???) has no funding. It's just another empty promise.

You can keep drinking the Kool-aid. I'm not.

^^^What have you done that is so much better?

Just as I thought nothing but a lot of whining.

There has not been 100 fucking miles of new wall you lying sacks of shit. I know the cult leader lies on the daily but you have to be uber lazy (or part of the cult) to not figure it out.

A rebuild of existing structure doesn't count dumb dumbs.

This is the biggest piece of BS propaganda. The wall has stopped many of the drug dealers from coming over to the US. The other day three got stuck on top as they tried to climb the wall with drugs. They have been arrested and sent back! As far as immigrants becoming closer that's great and they are either legal or trying to become legal. So lets get the story straight before posting lies!

The democrats new slogan; Death To America....Borrowed from Iran.

^^Umm sorry retard. That was Faux news propaganda. Not one drug dealer has been stopped. Newsflash for you retard, most drugs come through the ports of entry! Is far easier to pay border guards and waive the shipments through. Please do us all a favor and learn to think critically, try to hold an opposing thought in your head, and please actively seek out different viewpoints. Getting your entire worldview from Faux News has rendered your brain mush! Do better!!!!

Of course the wall doesn't work. It isn't there. Funding it has been fought by the Dems for years. That is the Dems fault not Trump. He has tried every which way to fund it. All the way to the supreme court. Have the Dems helped? Anyone.........

But Mexico was paying for it. I heard that for years at the rallies.

Who is going to pay? MEXICO!!!

The GOP was also in charge of Congress for Trump's first two years. Why didn't Trump get them to fund it???

Probably because Trump has no idea what he's doing. Don't blame Democrats for Trump's own failures.

3:00 awww chimpy, don’t be mad, sometimes momma chimpys kill themselves rather than be around you! Hahaha!

And 5:29 is exactly all that's left.

A president accomplishing nothing, actually worse, he is betraying the conservative agenda with big government debt, weak foreign policy, and rampant personal corruption.

But his folks are just happy he is trolling the libs on twitter. I'm so glad your standards are so low. That you are happy with someone that has failed on so many promises.
