re: Cost-Benefit of the Border Fence - GumboPot
The wall is not to prevent immigration, it's to help control legal and illegal immigration. Bring in all the f'n immigrants you want. JUST MAKE THEM LEGAL.:banghead: But we have to have a wall so it makes to more difficult for administrations like Obama's to cheat. ...

re: Eric Cantor to endorse Jeb Bush - GumboPot
:lol: Eric Cantor was beaten by an unknown challenger Dave Brat because Mr. Brat was smart enough to hit Cantor on the immigration issue and Cantor cowered because he's tied to the CoC who wants amnesty. It's very similar to what Trump is doing to the GOPe candidates. ...

re: Cost-Benefit of the Border Fence - GumboPot
Cost of the fence is really a non issue compared to the entire federal budget. It's a rounding error. And to complain about the cost of the fence is a complete red herring for people that are enjoying the spoils of illegal immigration. ...

re: Cost-Benefit of the Border Fence - GumboPot
I new you'd ask that question. With that said, you could build the fence multiple times over a person's life time versus the cost of social benefits they will receive over the same time. Of course this if for 10s of millions of illegals. ...

re: Cost-Benefit of the Border Fence - GumboPot
[quote]So with 11.3 million immigrants, they cost us 8 Trillion dollars. Doesn't that seem a little high, especially considering some are a net positive (work and student visa expirations). Besides millions of those immigrants did not come through Mexico so this policy does nothing to address that. ...

Getting material, supplies, energy, food, housing to remote areas is going to be very costly. Couple that with the expected project m...
