A cop was shot & killed by someone who was here illegally from Mexico. We’re already getting flak about the sanctuary law. Cops seem to believe the suspect would have been deported if police were able to provide his criminal information to ICE. He would be safely back in Mexico, by now, the narrative goes, where he would be unable to shoot at American police officers. And then we would build a wall to keep him there!
I guess we will see how it all works out, because conservative courts will overturn sanctuary laws, and we will end up building a wall, or steel slats, or something. We always make important decisions based on fear and backlash, and this case is full of both.

We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.
Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

They feel we need a physical barrier because the big cities are refusing to cooperate with immigration laws that might lead to deportation of illegal aliens. So some on the right have given up on reform of the laws and instead just want a physical barrier to keep people out.
Country appears to be bitterly divided on the idea of a wall. But the majority opposes “open border” concepts. Most actually think we need more security on the borders and that the immigration process needs to be improved but not made easy for people to just walk in. Both sides of this issue is actually being pushed by the fringe of each side…and neither is supported by the majority of voters. The majority want a compromise. They want something in the middle. And neither side wants to do that.
