    I say we give him his campaign-promised fucking wall in exchange for DACA



    He just needs to make sure to keep his related campaign promise - that Mexico pay for it.

    We The People will honor him in perpetuity by paying for this sculpture to be used as a decorative finial on each fencepost.


    Seriously, even if it got passed, would a wall ever actually get built? I doubt it.
    No wall, no DACA.

    If liberals don't like it then they can "move" to Canada illegally and see how illegal aliens are treated in other countries.

    2. Sorry, but no. That would be giving in to the 6 year old's tantrum

    Although I do like the idea of finials commemorating him. Mine will be fake dog poop spray painted orange.
    They hate their temper tantrums being labeled for what they are - temper tantrums. So predictibly they accuse others of doing what THEY ALONE are doing.

    The temper tantrum throwing Democrats are demanding DACA alone, no boarder security or immigration reform. If Democrats want DACA they will agree to boarder security.

    3. "would a wall ever actually get built"

    I have mentioned this aspect here for years. There seems to be very little care for that aspect even though it is huge. The wall is a political beast with no place in reality. I don't care if its written into legislation that we are paying for four hundred miles of it, as long as amnesty is a part of the deal and not connected to the start of the wall.
    DACA isn't amnesty, and Republicans better not agree to it UNLESS and UNTIL a wall is built and our immigration laws ARE ENFORCED.

    And yes, breaking agreements especially related to immigration IS the Democrats MO.

    4. Agree. If we have to "compromise" to preserve DACA, a wall/fence -- that may be little more than

    barbed wire stretched across the USA -- seems acceptable.

    That's a big victory for humanity as far as I'm concerned, with something to keep the ignorant white wing racists happy.

    5. I think they should take him up on it



    They could use the wall he wants so much as a negotiating point to get more than Trump wants to concede. They could include his promise not to go after SS or medicare as well as DACA. He's desperate to build that wall. More desperate to do that than anything else he promised his base. Use his megalomania against him and the Republicans.

    In the end the wall would be a financial disaster but it would start to show it's negative effects as soon as this Summer when undocumented Mexican labor is non existent to pick the crops. I'm pretty sure no one else will do that job, no matter how much they're hurting financially. And even if they would do the work would they take such low pay? Would there even be enough white Americans to do the job? I truly doubt it.

    But the wall also would serve as a physical reminder that the people who proudly voted for him to stick it to those Messicans are paying for it themselves.

    Plus I doubt that the wall would actually be built, no matter how much money is thrown at it. Who's going to build it? Illegals? White Flag wearing white people? Trump's base? (So liberal thugs are going to prevent it being built by companies who are interested in building it?)

    And if the wall becomes the huge failure it will be no one but Trump will be blamed. His name and the wall are forever linked. It will hurt the GOP too, for that very reason. Especially if Trump insists on putting his name on it just like a dog marking its territory

    Democrats may be missing a real opportunity here if they don't take Trump up on his either/or threat.
    Deporting DACA and their parents would pay for the wall, just as a wall limiting illegal aliens from coming here would also pay for it. TO ONLY WOULD MEXICO WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR OWN POOR BUT THE US WOULD NOT HAVE TO PUT OUT MONEY FOR THEM. In those ways Mexico will pay for the wall, at least indirectly.

    8. No

    It would be better to fight in court and wait for a new Congress in January 2019.

    10. my husband says we should offer him the largest statue in DC in his honor

    he wouldn't be able to resist it...it would cost <0.1% of the wall and we can tear it down once he's out of office.

    I say we even promise to make his coif in gold....so it shines across the land.

    We're getting a wall. End of story.

    Chain-migration is dead. Lottery-migration is dead.

    For DACA, there'll probably be a litmus-system. Some way to hand-pick who gets to stay.
