    Good job with the talking points.

    They've been entering the country illegally for years and in greater numbers. Why is it now an emergency?

    I suppose you would also need proof of all the Democrats to include Obama telling us all the need for a wall or other type of obstacle on the southern border?

    It's such a big crisis that only a wall can fix, which is why Trump has waited for two years and a divided government to actually try to do anything about it, and the solution is a wall that will take years to build.

    How much of the wall could have been built by now if Trump had made the wall a day one priority?

    No, I'm aware of their agreement to building fencing at the border.

    Do you remember this?

    News outlets readily described a “crisis” at the border under then-President Barack Obama when he sought funding to deal with a surge of migrants, many of them women and children -- but now that President Trump is in the White House, the mainstream media seem far more reluctant to use the word.
    Back in the summer of 2014, the headlines and stories referring to the C-word were plentiful as the border surge was taken seriously along the Acela corridor.

    Why did they change positions on that? Did they just evolve?

    Emergency is a subjective word anyway. Acosta is an embarrassment to his profession.

    but when Obama said it, it was accepted............ You've obviously put your money where your mouth is and have taken in a family of 7 or you're down there patrolling the border yourself.............What a hero
