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.

✔️Unknown price tag
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?

Ya don't have to be a genius, or live on the border, to know that a wall doesn't stop anyone. A wall can be climbed, broken through, or tunneled under.

My Senator @KamalaHarris knows this. Not sure why AG appointee Willism Barr does not 🤔.

✔️Won't stop human trafficking, won't stop drugs, won't reduce crime.
And as for crime, just a friendly reminder that violent crime in the US is down. And it's not the "immigrant" who commits the crimes.

✔️Won't Reduce Crime.
Another upshot of this "administrations" failed #ZeroTolerance policy and demanding that local law enforcement collaborate with I.C.E. is actually less cooperation with local law enforcement which endangers everyone.

✔️Won't Reduce Crime.
It's pretty clear to most common folks who aren't blinded by their racism that when people are afraid to even talk to the cops crimes will no longer get solved. So maybe there are good reasons for "Sanctuary Cities".

✔️Won't help the U.S. economy
Of course a guy who uses "Undocumented workers" in his own resorts should know that they're not taking jobs from anyone 😏and of course he does. Immigration doesnt hurt the US economy. It only helps.

✔️Won't help the U.S. economy
There are so many good articles and studies on this I could spend another 10 tweets..but I won't. The simple fact is, the anti-immigrant fervor sweeping the US and parts of Europe is stimulated by..

✔️A wall Won't help the U.S. economy.
...demagogues like tRump and #MatteoSalvini here in Italy. Remember, they are political opportunists as were Hitler and Mussolini, exploiting the time and place for their #Fascist ends.

✔ Will hurt communities and the environment.
While a big, beautiful #BorderWall won't slow down drugs or human trafficking it *will* slow down the flow of business and actually hurt thriving border communities.

✔ Will hurt communities and the environment.
And a large, concrete #BorderWall would also be disastrous for wildlife and endangered species. Imagine animals that are used to roaming free coming face to face with miles of wall.

✔ Will hurt communities and the environment.
@BetoORourke reminded us with a concise little video that much of the Texas Mexico border already has natural "borders" that make building a wall impossible. tRumps wall is symbolic

✔ Will hurt communities and the environment.
...symbolic of hatred, racism and division. Back when this little ballad was written #Texans used to row across the Rio Grande to spend a day in #Mexico. Things have changed. 😢

So...and since this little thread began with a great article by @BrookingsInst about the stupid f***ing #wall...so it ends. I strongly encourage you to read it from beginning to end. Clearly a wall is not worth the #TrumpShutdown #NoWall
