    I know @Trotsky has assured us multiple times that these individual cases mean nothing and we are just as safe with open borders as with a wall. He also has assured us that stories like this are put out by racists, so no big deal.

    That said:
    U.S. Border Patrol agents said Thursday that they apprehended several illegal immigrants at the southern border in Texas, in places where there are no physical barrier walls to deter illegal crossings.


    Among those caught crossing into the U.S. were a Mexican man with a previous conviction in Georgia for child molestation, a Honduran man with a record in North Carolina showing a conviction for "Indecent Liberties with Child," and another Honduran male with a Florida record that identified him as a member of the violent MS-13 gang....

    I hope all this means nothing and our children are safe as can be, but somehow, I doubt it.

    Were the molester and gang member paraplegics and therefore unable to climb or dig? Because in that case you may have a point.

    Otherwise, yeah, a wall wouldn't do shit. And, yeah, unrepresentative anecdotes are still unrepresentative anecdotes. When an undocumented immigrant is detained in a Guns N Roses shirt, it won't mean that immigrants are more likely to be Guns N Roses fans: it will just mean that, in a world in which 1-in-1000 people have that particularly shitty music taste and 1000 people are detained each day, you're occasionally going to find a Guns N Roses tee shirt.

    Also, there are what....50,000 molesters in the US? I'm guessing that's about the right number. I doubt you would care to point to any one of those 50,000 individuals to say, without statistical backing, that the United States is a disproportionately molester-y country. Because that would be stupid.

    So what you're saying is the existing border security is working as intended and the requested additional spending is just red meat to placate Trump's low information voter base, right?

    So they apprehended them without the need of a 20 billion dollar status symbol?

    The wall would slow them down, allowing proper authorities to hopefully get there in time and retrieve them.

    RE: NPC trolls... think for once.

    We can be thankful that these criminals were in fact caught, but look at all those who get in.

    Do I really need to post lists upon lists of those criminals who have gotten in and committed horrific crimes?

    US Citizens commit crime at a higher rate than illegal immigrants. What is Trump doing about that? Do we have a domestic crisis?

    It's funny youd write me off as an npc troll when you and I agree on a lot of other topics. Some may even say that's a pretty stock, npc response from you.

    Awesome. Who needs to waste tons of money on a wall when our existing border security is this successful. Keep up the great work.

    Nope, still need the added security in open areas. Nothing will be 100% effective but it is a deterrent and helps Border Patrol.

    omg! it's almost like statistical inevitability is inevitable.

    no one, in the history of time, has thought no bad guys escape across the Mexican border. The argument is about something completely different, and you know it.

    Any source that these criminals traveled through the areas that aren't walled?

    How about just some information on just the number of travelers through those areas to start?

    First sentence of the article.

    So "several"?

    We need a 2500 mile wall continuous wall to stop "several" people?
