All of you know damn well we'll still have all of the aforementioned things, with or without a wall. What happens if the Wall is built and it fails to do what Trump says it will do?

The wall is just one piece of the puzzle

You also need to deport people, punish employers of illegals and banks who launder drug money

But would you argue that we can eliminate crime 100%, or anything else for that matter?

Don't you have to, at some point, realize that crime will always exist and is just part of the "cost of doing business", just like gun violence?

Read up on how President Eisenhower dealt with illegal immigrants. Trump should do the same thing.

There's better and then there's worse. I don't think there are many wall advocates who actually think that having a wall would be a silver bullet but most all of them think it will be better than not having a wall.

I don't think you have anything to worry about. Trump had his opportunity 2 years ago and he failed to follow through.
