The Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi, Speaker Of The House, are lobbying on behalf of the drone industry to use drones instead of cement to keep the floods of people wanting to cross over into the USA illegally from south of the USA border from doing so. A national security issue has turned into a lobbyist special interest windfall potential for companies that make drones.
There’s no money in cement Chuck Schumer might as well have said, when he smirked and body languaged his disdain for anything concrete. After all, there’s no money nor votes in it for him, Nancy Pelosi or any one of their 11% approval rated congressional colleagues. Cement isn’t the gift that keeps giving as drones appear to be. Drones don’t fly themselves and you need a lot of them to secure the border, plus the maintenance and training of bilingual people to operate them.
At least be honest about it. If a wall is immoral, then drones are even more invasive thus immoral. Congress or anybody else can decide at any given time to stop flying the drones. You can’t stop the function of a wall once it’s built. The deterrent is always there. There is no manipulative power with a wall, as there is with drones, which is what the Democrats want.
Massive numbers of drones will create chaos. People will get shot. Drones will be damaged. Nancy Pelosi is thinking Afghanistan where operators in the USA conducted drone strikes on people standing on street corners, or who drove caravans of vehicles to any location. The use of massive numbers of drones by people not sufficiently trained will start a war. And she’s okay with all of that.
Sure drones are useful, but without a barrier, no. We’re not at war yet, so the drones have to be protecting something, which is a wall. If there’s no wall, then anybody can cross the border who is not spotted and pursued by a drone. And what will that do, except put a lot of DEA and Homeland Security agents in danger who have to go after them in trucks once they are spotted after they’ve crossed the border. The Democrats are risking the lives of our own agents for drone contracts without fully understanding the ramifications.
This isn’t a video game, where drone operators can simply pop every person crossing the border illegally.
A drone isn’t a deterrant. People can figure out when they’re flown or get the intel from spies and pass it along. There’s no predictions needed with a wall. It’s always there, so people can’t find out the times that it’s up and the times that it’s down. It’s always up. That’s the deterrant.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want to give the drone industry billions of dollars when they haven’t thought this through. Go back and watch how members of congress responded to Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook. They were totally ignorant of computers and Facebook. They are even more ignorant of drones. All they know is what they see in movies.
If I don’t have a ‘no trespassing’ sign with a fence around my property, then people will assume they can be on it. Without a wall, how will the USA win in court against an invasion by people claiming it their right to be here?
This isn’t the Berlin Wall or even the Wall in Israel/Palestine. Those walls created borders that didn’t previously exist, dividing cities and neighborhoods. The USA already has a border. Everybody in the area knows the border. That’s where The People’s Wall goes. People can still go back and forth if they’re legal.
It’s like toll booths to get onto a highway. Why do we have toll booths, if they don’t work? People pay – they are forced to pay – to use the road. If you don’t pay, then find another way to get where you’re going. I think people should pay a toll for crossing over the southern border, given the huge costs to the tax payers in our country for social services because of their disruptive, illegal actions.
What’s immoral is encouraging people to come to a country where they don’t speak the language to do slave labor, to live in poverty and as outlaws generation after generation. That’s immoral. That is perpetuating the cycle of slavery. Forcing them to do jobs that supposedly nobody who is an actual citizen wants is immoral. If you want to move up the socio-economic ladder, you have to speak English or forever be strapped to jobs where only Spanish-speaking people work with Spanish-speaking bosses. Taking advantage of somebody’s economic status like that and then making the process of citizenship so lengthy and cumbersome with fines attached is immoral.
Slavery is alive and well in the USA
A Wall says, go back and work it out in a better way than what you’ll get here. A Wall doesn’t violate human rights. Why do citizens of Mexico, Central and South America have more rights in the USA than USA citizens? A Wall protects the rights of people already here. A Wall is not immoral. Slavery is immoral.
Yeah, Chuck Schumer had dollar signs in his eyes. Drones are the new building contracts to the Israelis.
There’s profit to made in drones, not cement.
The bottom line is that a wall is a deterrent; drones are not.
Drones can only function optimally when there is an actual wall to protect from a breach. Otherwise it’s wide open spaces. How can you say someone breached a wide open space? Border? What border? You mean there’s a border here? Hey man, I was just taking my dog for a walk.
Outposts won’t work either. They’re too small. They’re not efficient.
The current path to citizenship in the USA is a path to nowhere.
Donald Trump didn’t create this mess, but he sure has the courage to take it on.
This citizen would like to see some courage from the 11% approval rated congress and senate. Resistance is a weak strategy for change. You all made the mess by profiting from slave labor and human suffering, now clean it up. Opening the border to exploitation by foreign entities is not a solid solution. It’s a strategic nightmare.
