Don't forget, its not the only one, apparently there are more on the way.

Its just lunacy, I'm not mad on Donald trump, but compared to the options on offer over there...theres literally no choice but him. The others are spaced out of their minds.

What a choice!

Whatever that book is, this is like the test for it or something. I mean, if several hundred thousand people just turned up at the border with America, what could happen?

And whats to stop that from happening? Its just people walking!

Some dodge-minded people thought it was a great message to send out to the world, like merkle...it was a terrible idea. Like, perhaps one of the worst decisions of the century, even only 18 years into it.
Camp of saints. A right wing book.

Honestly if you told me that this caravan was secretly funded by the right or Russia I’d believe it.

Trump seems to understand that too. If thousands of people are outside a wall in one great group it will seem like an invasion, even though relative to yearly immigration it’s not huge.

The crowd at the wall will probably grow anyway by the time it gets there, with local Mexicans, activists, NGOs and others joining the protests. There could be 100,000 or more.

Rather than discredit the wall it would do the exact opposite.

Don't let them in, they'll either start piling up at the border and/or it will cause an internal civil war (and maybe not just politically).

Mad stuff, ted.

I don't see any solution for this.
Open borders for some, miniature American flags for others?

That's just it, its so ridiculous in origin, it would be normal to question it!

When I fist heard mention a few days ago, I honestly believed it was some kind of trump mega-exaggeration, maybe even a lie. The media! But you can see it actually marching along, unless they're all republican actors. Or are they Russians, I forget what I was told to believe?

Well they get stopped at the boarder . sorry folks your no coming in without the right papers and we have no idea who or what you are .

camp set up on in one of the most lawless places in the world containing a large percentage of desperate and helpless people

lefty's and bleeding hearts scream bloody murder . criminals and people traffickers run amok in the camp

eventually there's an attempt to storm the wall and there's bloodshed , lots and lots of bloodshed.

the left's try and get trump impeached again the right wing nut jobs hail him as a savior of nation.

it all fades away sort of like the occupy movement because it does not effect the people who matter

4000 refugees throwing rocks at you would make you soil your pants...

Nowhere near that number would be throwing rocks. It's like the paratroopers up North shooting protesters.

Hanging around likudniks is never going to produce anything other than thuggery on a state level.

If 15000 march together, across different countries, that could appear to be an invasion.

Sending troops was a smart idea, PR wise anyway, or else vigilantes with guns would be there instead.

Bought time anyway!
