The main reason people oppose the wall is because the Big Tool wants it.

That's part of it but another part is that congressional Dems don't want to be negotiating against themselves like fools.  Pence made a reasonable compromise offer but the risk of accepting is that Trump then follows his usual M.O. of repudiating it so he can retrade for more.  In fact, Trump later clarified Pence lacked authority to make the proposal.

White House chaos + Trump's asinine concept of negotiation is a deadly combination.

Don't negotiate with Trump, ever.

I wish my government didn't. :(

Here in these streets are the things that we want: sex and birth, votes and traits, money and guilt, television and teddy bears. But all we've actually got is each other. You decide what that means.

Russia donated $0.00 to Trump. Russia donated $145,600,000.00 to the Clinton foundation. But Trump is the one under investigation?

Heaven has a wall, a gate and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.

Why this wall was not already built is a mystery to me.

I thought most of the border already had some kind of barrier or wall, or at least a fence, but then this new Trump wall is supposed to be bigly.

I'm no theologian but I'm pretty Hell doesn't have open borders.

Heaven does have a strict immigration policy though. Mostly to keep the rich out.

I've always imagined it as a giant pit.

The first level of Hell is walled off from the others.  Julius Caesar hangs and Aristotle hang out there.  It's nice.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011
