Trump put razor wire on border fence -- Arizona town just voted unanimously to tear it down

Opposition to President Donald Trumpís border fortification continues to grow.

Trump pledged to build a cement wall during the 2016 campaign, but Mexico refused to fund the expensive project as he had pledged. He then sought money from Congress, but Capitol Hill refused to fund either a concrete wall or steel-slat border fence.

Trump, however, has defiantly continued to push for fortifications and has sent 3,700 troops to the border to increase fortifications.

Nogales, Arizona was outraged after troops installed razor wire, also known as concertina wire, along the existing border wall in their community.

7. Yep, or someone will cut it all down in a few spots and everyone will know where to go over

where there is no wire. None of this is doing squat and who fucking cares if we get a few of them coming over? They help the economy grow. More people to buy groceries and eat at local restaurants.

9. Trump doesn't actually give a shit about the border. It's just raw meat to his base.

For 50+ years, Republican politicians at the national level have been almost completely reliant upon racism and sexism. Absent racism and sexism, that party would cease to be viable.

Now, don't get me wrong, Trump is most certainly a racist and misogynist. But he doesn't give 2 shits about border security.

23. I wonder who's getting rich...

from selling the government well over 2,000 miles of razor wire. You know it's some crony of a republican piece of crap senator or house representative, maybe it's even a "friend of Trump". Whoever it is is getting a kickback, because a republican doesn't get out of bed in the morning without receiving payment from someone. Every damned one of them is a crook and on the take, so I'd be very interested in knowing who the manufacturer is. That stuff has got to be expensive.

11. Assinine

Why put that crap on the U.S. side? I don't see in the article if this is on city land. Regardless, I would think they could get a restraining order for making their city look like a prison camp.

Would it make tRump happy to see children tangled up in his wire?

12. Why screw around with half-measures like razor wire?

Land mines. The base wants land mines. They'd give up sex to get land mines -- if they were having it.

13. Here is the logic that is never discussed in all of these border town.

Extended families are on both sides of the border in almost everyone of these locations.

So the gov't and law enforcement is messing with brothers, sisters, cousins, etc. Human nature takes over naturally the gov't and LE becomes the enemy of people on BOTH sides of the border. Unless you fully militarize sections of the border there is no way to stop human nature, fences will be cut down, walls pulled down by trucks with winches. It would likely to be cheaper to roll out pallets stacked with dollar bills. At least then the local economies will boom for a short time.

16. Yup, and the border goes right through the Tohono O''odham Nation.

With sacred burial grounds and communities on both sides of the border.

24. Some thoughtful journals have written about it.

Large physical barriers, as Trump's proposed 30' spite fence would certainly be, do affect and damage the cultures and diminish the quality of life in these sister communities on both sides of the border, which are typically friendly and interdependent. Economies take bad hits and painful adjustments, property values in some unfortunate neighborhoods can be devastated, and whole communities risk decline.

14. This is not my America.

I would like to suggest to Trump, and to all of the GOP, that they move elsewhere. They certainly do not belong in the United States of America.

We should start a GoFundMe page for their one way tickets. Hell, they get for free. And it can't come fast enough.

They just don't. They need to go to russia where Pooty Poot will be Big Daddy for their fear-besotted souls.
