Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A Texas town is opposing Trump's suggested border wall. Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, Mark Thompson, and also Sue-Ann Robinson, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you why they protest the wall. Tell us just what you think in the remark section below.

" Donald Trump has called Laredo harmful, however citizens right here are more concerned regarding his proposed policies compared to criminal activity.

Twice a day, Myra Cazares walks over the Portal to the Americas International Bridge that links the border city of Laredo, Texas, with Mexico. Cazares, 22, belongs equally to both nations. She was birthed in San Antonio as well as jobs and also studies in Laredo, but lives throughout the Rio Grande in Nuevo Laredo with her parents.

" The guards get to know you since you cross each day," claimed Cazares.

Although there is a hard line on maps where the USA ends as well as Mexico begins, the fact in Laredo is blurred. Greater than 6,000 people stroll into Mexico throughout Laredo's pedestrian bridge each day, according to the City of Laredo, which just tracks southbound web traffic. About 14,000 automobiles daily also make the going across, including greater than 4,000 semitrailers that shuttle products right into Mexico."

    That wall will never get built, it was just another thing to trick gullible Trump voters.

    McAllen and Laredo would not have the hospitals, and overall infrastructure if it weren’t for Mexican shoppers. If you go more than 20 -30 miles away from them, off the highway a bit, and its a whole different Texas.

    • Posted by Marbles McGee, at Reply

      Jay, you are right, it won’t affect the economy there at all. But it isn’t a TYT spin. The politicians in Laredo are the ones claiming it will hurt the economy. TYT is just reporting what they said.

      Marbles McGee lol “duuuuuuuh have you seen my baseball?” lmao I hope Jay Three had a brain fart.
      also why would someone swim across the river to go shopping?

    • Posted by charles salado, at Reply

      I can say the same about Eagle Pass. once the dollar hit 20pesos per dollar
      little stores down town closed and Wal-Mart sure as he’ll felt it, they actually took a loss by exchanging every dollar for 18 pesos just as long as you bought at their store.

    • Posted by Marbles McGee, at Reply

      charles….Jay is saying that the wall won’t have any effect on the economy because nobody is swimming to Texas.

    Lock Trump up behind a jail wall!

    As someone who has lived in south/central Texas his whole life, I can say a lot of us are against the wall, Trump is an idiot who has no idea what he’s doing.

      Not really a joke though, just a dead punch line that made the election of the orange chump no better, but keep on trucking sir, keep on trucking 🙂

    A wall on the Mexican border won’t accomplish anything except waste lots of money and make us look like idiots.

    • Posted by EmperorWildManChan, at Reply

      We can make some money off the wall (or get some money back for the cost of building the wall) by selling advertising wall spaces on both sides of wall.

    • Posted by Eva Sidera, at Reply

      David Harrison you’re right, it’s counterproductive. It does nothing. Trump just wanted to lure in votes.

    • Posted by Agnostic Atheist, at Reply

      I like the wall idea…you Americans should surround your country with one. Us, Canadians, will do you a favour and fill it with water when you are done…At least this way, one of Trump’s campaign promises will come true – it would finally make America great again and we’ll have a large swimming pool.

      You just summed up Conald’s entire approach to government.

    • Posted by JG Perea, at Reply

      I totally agree David. India controls its border with Pakistan using advanced surveillance methods. Its cheaper and effective. The con artist in the white house is delusional!

    Please note that us in South Texas are overwhelmingly blue.

      Christopher Singer I’m sorry that you guys are going through this.

    • Posted by Alex Arriaga, at Reply

      Christopher Singer I know bud. I lived in south Texas for the majority of my life. South Texas is very democrat.

    • Posted by MDoorpsy, at Reply

      Ironically, I live there, but came from a republican family. They insisted I be homeschooled, and then put me in a private conservative christian high school, presumably to keep me away from liberals.

      Christopher Singer This is no time to be blue! It’s time to pick ourselves up by our bootstraps and fight back! This is no time to be yellow!

    They voted for him. THey can’t blame the brown people anymore.

    • Posted by AustinLegendz, at Reply

      Ignorance is bliss. I would encourage you to actually look at a map of Texas red/blue areas. South Texas is very blue. You know, the part of Texas that is actually *affected* by this wall.

    • Posted by AgentDearestZ, at Reply

      +AustinLegendz Cause a whole area being blue means everyone has the same ideology, right.
      By that logic all whites are kkk supporters and love raping and pillaging.

      +Anna133199 i explained my issue with his comment in the first part of the sentence. It was generalizing.

    • Posted by AgentDearestZ, at Reply

      +Anna133199 And “They” clearly means people that voted for trump and his wall. Apply that to my comment and im sure itll make sense.

      Frank Rose Many Texas towns, ranches, homes, golf courses, etc will be on the south side of the wall.
      In some cases, properties will be cut in half.

    Do Trump voters even still support this wall? This has to be the most juvenile bullshit a politician has done to get support and redneck Americans fell for it like gullible sheep…..

    As I Texan, I can tell you that overwhelmingly, the majority of people do not want the border wall. Granted, I live in an urban area. However, I have many friends and family in rural areas.

    • Posted by MDoorpsy, at Reply

      My family is on a ranch outside Edinburg, which is pretty much right next to McAllen. It’s a dumb idea no matter how many buildings are around you.

    • Posted by wiz9496, at Reply

      You’re in the minority, Greg. You probably live in an echo chamber.

      I know! Because us Canadians are hella dangerous! We are known to carry maple sugar candy, hockey pucks and moose poop! Some of us will stand near you and apologize for casting a shadow on you! We relentlessly use the word ” Eh?” Why waste your time hating Mexicans? Canadians are in your cities, being polite to you! America, are you going to stand for that?

    WARNING: Very long/controversial comment ahead.

    Many people who are uneducated/misled on the subject of immigration/refugees often ask things like “Why don’t immigrants come here legally or stay here if they know they are illegal?,” “If they are already here why don’t they just apply for citizenship to stay,” and “Why should we care about immigrants or refugees in the 1st place since they don’t benefit our country?” Well I have a few answers/explanations.

    A lot of Americans, particularly those who have never left the U.S., don’t realize how hard legal immigration actually takes. Much like achieving refugee status/vetting to seek asylum from places like the Middle East can take up to 2 years, applying and getting legal immigration status can take at least 5 years no matter where you come from (even for our closest allies). If you have a relative who is an American citizen or some1 sponsoring you then you can save time but most immigrants/refugees obviously don’t. Whether you are an legal immigrant, refugee, asylum seeker, or student/tourist visa applicant, no 1 from any country can just get on a plane and become a citizen over night regardless of what Republicans/isolationists who see them as a threat to us claim.

    Now if a foreigner wants to come to the U.S. legally for work or an education and they are willing to put the time and money to do so then we have no right to deport them since as I said this process of becoming a citizen takes years. But when people are trying to escape war, crime, or poverty to seek shelter in the U.S. sometimes their only option is to take the risk and come illegally and try to seek citizenship once they are here. Also, immigrants and refugees who have jobs and pay taxes (although by law most businesses and corporations aren’t supposed to hire them in the 1st place and report them to authorities) which benefits our economy, but until they become legal citizens they never receive benefits like social security and Medicare/Medicaid.

    Finally, most people who come here illegally don’t tend to stay for more than just a few years (some do but they aren’t the majority) and just try to work to earn a little money to send back to their families or seek safe haven until they can return home. So President Trump’s border wall (as many at The Young Turks have pointed out) will fail at keeping immigrants out and make keeping them in easier. And, nowadays the fastest growing groups of immigrants are Latin Americans (the 7 countries south of Mexico) and East Asians (Chinese, Japanese, Filipinos, and Indians) who come by planes and overstay visas, while more Mexican immigrants and asylum seekers are returning home in recent years.

    If you read all of this thanks and share your thoughts/opinions about these subjects.

      This is an excellent, well-informed comment. Unfortunately, it’ll probably get lost in the sea of trolls and morons who don’t want to or can’t understand.
