Graham was once one of Trump’s sharpest critics (“I think he’s a kook,” in 2016), and is now one of his staunchest supporters, whether it comes to supporting his Supreme Court pick, or his golf game (“Anyone who says he’s not a great golfer, that’s fake news,” he said).(WaPo)
Sen. Lindsey Graham advises President Donald Trump to “stick to his guns” in the fight over funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and warned that giving in to Democrats' demands could be "the end of his presidency." (USAToday)

Note that once again, the victims of the sex trafficking operation were not Trump's mythical women smuggled across the Mexican border in car trunks, but entered through legal ports of entry such as airports. #NoWall

Once again, I’m disgusted by @realDonaldTrump’s demonization of immigrants. When will this infantile stereotyping, scapegoating, and gaslighting end? #SOTU
FACTS:
Border crossings are far below historic highs.
Most undocumented immigrants overstay their visas.
Experts see no security crisis at the border.
Most drugs come via ports of entry.
Immigrants are less likely to commit crime than native-born Americans.
#NoWall #SOTU
We want smart, effective border security: better staffing/tech at ports of entry & elsewhere, more immigration judges, better monitoring of mail & cargo, and humanitarian treatment of migrants & refugees. NOT a costly, ineffective, ego-project wall. #SOTU

@JohnCornyn @santacruzaz Texas Republican whose district shares 820 miles of the border tells Rolling Stone that Trump's border crisis is a "myth," and that his wall is the "most expensive and least effective way to do border security." axios.com/texas-republic…

@WhiteHouse @realDonaldTrump @HouseDemocrats The House already passed bipartisan funding bills - including funding for border security. Mitch McConnell needs to bring these bills up for a vote, and @realDonaldTrump needs to sign them. They need to stop holding workers' pay hostage.

Here it is kids! From @BrookingsInst
All the factual reasons why a #Wall is simply a bad idea.
✔️Unknown price tag
✔️Won't stop human trafficking, won't stop drugs, won't reduce crime
✔️Won't help the U.S. economy
✔️Will hurt communities & the environment

✔️Unknown price tag
Now, in case anyone actually thinks the Democrats are just being obstructionist for the sake of obstructing let me remind you that, in this case, the "Tax and Spend" party is actually being quite reasonable.

If nobody, including the President himself, has no clear idea of how much a phantomatic #BorderWall could eventually cost why should the US Taxpayers even begin to give the govt. their money?

Let’s have some truth bombs before tonight’s address:

#NoWall Fact 1:
Illegal border crossings are way down

In the early 2000’s, 1.3-1.6 million people were apprehended crossing the border.

2018? <400,000

cbp.gov/newsroom/stats…

#TrumpAddress
#NoWall Fact 2:
Undocumented Immigrants are not causing a crime wave at the border, in fact the southern border counties are among the safest in the country!

#BoycottTrumpsAddress

washingtonpost.com/news/politics/…
#NoWall Fact 3:
The majority of undocumented immigrants DO NOT sneak across the border, they are people who came to the US legally and overstayed their visa. A wall does NOTHING to address this.

@ABC This unnecessary #TrumpShutdown is being enabled by GOP Senators.

Border crossings by undocumented migrants:

2000: 1.3 million
2006: 1 million
2010: 400000
2017: 300000

Currently we have a net negative immigration rate...more people leave than people who cross.

the wall is a waste. It is just an Ego monument for Trump!

Here are DHS numbers from October to Feb this year compared to last years... all in the negative.
This moron president should understand the basic of Supply/Demand.
Total apprehensions of undocumented immigrants by year numbers ( CBP's own numbers to justify my prior tweet) lower right corner is the yearly total.
We don't need a fuk'n wall.
