I think it could stop some men who plan to bring them to the US getting in through the southern border. One of the problems is that some Latin American countries have very low ages of consent.
Do you have any evidence that these men are actually bringing these young brides in illegally via the southern border?

What you posted refers to men applying officially to bring these brides in. Is this another case of you posting any old thing that you can then blame on the southern border?

You originally posted this
"Some Americans abusing the immigration laws to bring child brides to the US."

Note that it is men who are already US citizens that are engaging in this activity. You can't blame the illegals for this activity. If American men can do this officially then get the US system changed.

Think about what you just wrote. Do you really think that instead of flying them in and marrying them, that they'd walk them in through the desert and then marry them?

Do you stop to think for a second?
The Dame tends not to think.

This thread is about the supposed crisis on the border, yet the Dame felt the need to confuse things by bringing up something that has nothing to do with the southern border.

These men seem to have found some official way to apply to bring in these young brides. They don't need the southern border to smuggle them in.

Its well known that the Mexican drug cartels are a crucial element in the trafficking of Central Americans in to the US. At El Chapo's trial a few days ago, an informer claimed (even CNN reported this) that El Chapo had paid a $100 million bribe to the former Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto. Comes as 1000 members of a new caravan have entered Mexico unhindered.

Did s ex-president $100 million?

Drug cartel corruption and intimidation of Mexican officials is par for the course. Peña Nieto is already leaving office with one of the worst reputations for conflicts of interest and corruption scandals in modern Mexican political history. Further, Peña Nieto's decrepit reputation includes his treacherous behaviours regarding Trump. Trump's domestic anti-Mexico demagogy aside, Trump has had a very predatory and corrupt business history in Mexico and doesn't seem intent on ending it and has introduced the Kushners to the 'right connections' in that marketplace.

You're taking a wide swing here by tying the El Chapo-Peña Nieto issue to a caravan and Trump's wall.

I would be very surprised if the majority of US citizens support the present situation. I believe most understand the countries south of the border have difficulty dealing with democracy. They need help to become democratic and there is always the communists to hijack such attempts, so tight border security is required urgently.

I also believe that if Trump os seen to do his very best on the border he will be rewarded on election day,

Trump and his circle will be congratulating themselves about they have made some poor people's lives even more miserable.

It's supply and demand, Dame Enda.

You are Trump can shoot you mouths off, but people or drugs would not be trafficked into the US if there was not a massive demand.

If Trump and congressional Democrats fail to come to a border security agreement in the next couple of weeks,
  • 48 percent of Americans said in a Monmouth University poll that the parties should agree to fund the government through the end of the year without a deal.
  • 20 percent said they should shut down the government until a deal is reached, and
  • 26 percent said they should extend the temporary funding and keep negotiating.
Asked about the idea of Trump’s declaring a national emergency to build the wall, 64 percent of respondents said they disapproved, while 34 percent said they approved.

What is the barbed wire for?

A fence plus barbed wire does not equal a "big beautiful wall".

The barbed wire is obviously intended to frustrate illegal immigration.

“We’re not going to allow this in Nogales,” Mayor Arturo R. Garino said.

He said he had met earlier in the day with Border Patrol officials who told him the razor wire was needed to stop “rapists, murderers and child molesters” who come over the border fence. The mayor said he doesn’t believe that’s true, and he ordered city officials to file public records requests to try to get data on what’s really going on.

The Trump administration has laid dozens of miles of concertina wire on strategic points along the 1,954-mile long U.S.-Mexico border to try to stiffen what it seems porous spots. The coiled wire is usually used in conjunction with fencing already on the border. The combination makes it tougher for migrants to climb the fence, since coming down on the U.S. side could land them in the razor wire.

Doesn't the fence already do that?

Trump was going on about not needing actual walls, and that fences (or other barriers) would do.

Is this fence not up to the job?

What sort of classless, tacky, vulgar, tasteless imbecile would deem this repulsive sight "beautiful"?

Idiot Trump is the answer to that one.

It's not a "big beautiful" wall, or any other sort of barrier.
