    EL PASO, Texas – Smugglers in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico have engineered camouflage hook-and-ladders made of rebar that blend in so well with the border wall that it can be hard to detect, according to U.S. Border Patrol. The ladders are the same rust brown color as the mesh panels or steel beams of the fence.

    El Paso's urban stretch of border is littered with the rusted rebar ladders at the base on both sides — ladders lying in wait on the Mexican side, ladders pulled down by border agents or abandoned by smugglers on the U.S. side. One of the rebar ladders was poking out of a dumpster in a lot near the Chihuahuita neighborhood on Thursday.

    30-40 dollars hook and ladders to beat a billion dollar wall.

    So the argument is that we shouldn't
    enforce our laws because a bunch of miscreants are going to break them anyway?
    Some of us have really lost our way

    shoot the f'ers putting up the ladders.. bullets are cheap and plentiful.. how would you like that rudave? I'm guessing you wouldn't. and they wouldn't need ladders at all if there were no wall there.

    A physical wall is still better than no wall! People will always find a way in but we cannot have mass hordes of humans coming into the country illegally. A wall slows that kind of migration down considerably.

    Since Mexico is paying for the wall, who cares that it's a complete waste of Mexican taxpayers money?

    where did you get $20B? Could be more, could be less. Trump's tariffs and new deal with Mexico probably will raise $5B of it.. the rest will be paid by entrance fees charged to illegals... we'll contract Disney corp to put up turnstiles and security gates. illegals will first pay tolls and then need Magic Bands and pay a fee to enter. That should do it.

    Yet soon, you and I won't be able to board an airplane without new and "improved" photo identification.

    Anyone try to get a Driver's License from your local DMV without documentation galore ?

    But hey. We can't afford Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, need to cut food stamps. I don't see how any of these people keep a straight face.

    The wall is a waste of money but spending trillions on a hoax ( GND) is a-ok. These folks at sick between the ears.

    The Green New Deal is excessive, but not all Dems support it.

    The entire GOP supports "the wall" despite it literally blowing down.
