So basically his supporters are OK with wasting $72 million (and we all know that figure will turn out to be twice that amount) as long as it induces liberal tears.

I take you've ignored FF's Caravan Wall post, or just in denial.

Caravan has been in TJ almost a week now growing by the 100's a day and well over half (6000 and growing) are already there straining TJ's community services. UN, Red Cross and international aid groups are already being called in to stem this building humanitarian crisis.

But ya, nothing out of the ordinary and just another day in TJ. rolleyes

Many probably took Mexico's bullet train to get there so quick.



So many women and children on these rides. pokestick

We need to adopt this type of mass transit in So Cal. This is the ultimate in green eco-travel. Look how little it impacts the environment? Carbon footprints are near nothing per person. Make it from one of those all electric battery Tesla big rigs and people would be raving for more.

Many bitch about our MetroLink, Coaster and Bullet train grossly over budget costs. This is much more cost efficient, AND you get to really know your fellow commuters much more intimately. hat

You haven't responded to the question about the mission ending dec 15 but much of the caravan still to arrive after that date. And a correction to my previous post.....the cost is upwards of $210 million.

Yeah, its a waste to send troops when one A10 could eliminate the whole problem pretty quickly

No hand-thrown rock is going to overcome proper riot gear. Why is Donnie BooBoo sending ill-equipped troops to the border if he fears rocks? Does he hate his military?

I see a least a few before the camera pulls away (starting about 0:45).

That's only the first try.

But "babies are crying" (while they drag them along with jumpers) bawling

Just another day in lovely sunny TJ. cheers

You're truly an idiot in full denial. Or just can't deal that this is impacting TJ as bad as it is.

It's to back up the Border Patrol and their other sub-departments only.

More to make the migrants think twice before rushing the border than anything.

But it seems activists that are pushing them don't give a shit what happens to humans on either side of this debacle. Pueblo Sin Fronteras should be held accountable for any confrontations here.

Did they do that on the Guatemala border?

Many that pushed thru think they can do it again on the USA border, thanks to embedded Pueblo Sin Fronteras activists cheering them on.

Wow your fantasy is coming true! You must be stoked.

Youll be even happier when those kids throwing pebbles from nearly 80 yards at a metal fence are shot too I bet!
