Don’t quite get the drift why Obama keeps being such a “cry baby” about the southern wall. The only thing I could figure was in his earlier days – it kept him from “breaking in and entering.” Is he afraid his gangs can’t get in with the drugs? Or is he reliving his earlier days?
If anyone has ever been to Mexico – most homes have their boundary set by a high wall around their home to protect themselves.
I feel a lot safer with a wall and I find that it greatly enhances the natural beauty of the land, appropriately makes use of local materials and serves as a tasteful reminder of an ancient method of defining boundaries.” So who would be against that? Also a wall would cut down on the number of personnel guarding the border and their safety.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly defended the plan for a wall on the border between the U.S. and Mexico, while rejecting a claim made by former President Barack Obama.
“We’re not hiding behind a wall. We’re constructing a physical barrier backed up by technology and, of course, the great men and women of the Customs and Border Protection to simply safeguard our southern border,” Kelly told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program on Friday.
“It’s not going to impede in any way the legal crossing of millions of people a week, Mexicans and all other nationalities, Americans going south and north. Normal commercial traffic will move. You can’t defend anything by hiding behind something.”
Kelly was responding to a Thursday statement by Obama, where he said, “In this new world that we live in, we can’t isolate ourselves. We can’t hide behind a wall.”
During an appearance on “CBS This Morning” on Friday, Kelly was asked about whether the U.S. should anticipate an attack like what happened in Manchester.
“The reality is they’re attempting everything all the time,” Kelly told host Charlie Rose. “The very, very good news, is that we have tremendous professionals fighting the away game for us.”
Information from ordinary Americans is vital, Kelly continued, and “every citizen, in my view, is an intelligence collector, not in the sense of watching people too closely. But if you see something, say something.”
