First-ballot hall of fame #NeverTrump pundit Erick Erickson published a Saturday story on his blog claiming that a wall on the southern border is both implausible to build and will not have the desired effect of keeping illegals from simply walking into the United States.
“The total length of the US-Mexico border is 1,989 miles (3,201 km) and the sheer length of the border would make the construction of a wall along the southern border a massive undertaking,” said a piece written by David Thornton in The Maven.
What happened to the sense of American pride in these spineless #NeverTrump weaklings? This is the country whose innovations shaped the modern world. The one that invented electricity, won World War II, and put a man on the moon. We can’t erect 2,000 miles of concrete barrier?
“Natural barriers are also present along the southern US border. While many Americans picture the Mexican border as a flat, desert wasteland, in reality, there are many different types of terrain,” the piece said.
There’s the good old American spirit – It might be challenging, let’s give up!
The piece continued to bemoan the obstacle that is the Rio Grande river. Though Thronton agrees that from an engineering standpoint, it is possible to build a such a structure in water (see the beams that support every major bridge in this country for proof), he said that the placement of the wall could present problems for farmers who rely on the Rio Grande for watering their crops, and that altering the course of the river would be a violation of some treaty with Mexico. Since there’s no possible way to work either of these issues out, we should give up. (Eye roll).
“Because much of the border land in Texas is privately owned, the federal government has had to use eminent domain laws to condemn and seize land where it plans to build the wall in Texas,” the piece continued.
Has anyone asked these Texan landowners if they would be willing to cede ground in exchange for a wall? The Maven certainly did not. But this reporter’s sense is that those blue-blooded Americans would be willing to sacrifice a bit for their country. Not to mention the benefits that would surely follow from not having to deal with cartel smugglers traversing their property.
And then, according to the piece, there’s the problem of tough terrain.
“The southwestern United States contains rocky mountains and sheer cliffs that are reminiscent of Wile E. Coyote cartoons. This terrain is ill-suited to construction but is passable to determined travelers,” it said.
So people can (and do) cross the border here, but we can’t build a wall on it. Roger that.
Conspicuously missing from the piece, which is full of gripes and presents multiple “problems” with building a wall, are any solutions to problem of illegal immigration and the constant influx of foreign invaders crossing our borders daily – 2,000 of them, to be specific.
True to form, the elite political class provides problems but no solutions, all while wondering why they are universally hated among ordinary Americans.

Dan ‘McCain 2.0’ Crenshaw Outlines His Plan to Give Amnesty to Millions of Illegal Aliens
Crenshaw is a faux-conservative.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) recently outlined his plan to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens while appearing on a podcast.
A clip is going viral on social media of Crenshaw detailing his plan to flood the U.S. with third-world migrants and crowd native workers from well-paying jobs in the marketplace.
“I put it in simple terms, uh, ya know, zero tolerance on illegal immigration. We truly lock down the border, and then we can have a conversation about a more streamlined legal immigration system that is based on merit rather than familial connections,” he said.
While Crenshaw may want to lock down the border (or so he claims), he is open to schemes that would allow the low-income workers to flood into the U.S. from desolate countries and squeeze Americans out of quality employment.
“I’m willing to have a conversation about a more streamlined version of work visas,” he said.
Crenshaw noted that after the U.S. has “plugged the leak,” conservatives should embrace giving amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens that have broken the law to come into the country.
“I think restitution might be an option there… Here’s generally what I think. If you’ve committed a crime, a crime other than your VISA overstay or crossing the border illegally, I have zero tolerance for that. ICE should deport you,” Crenshaw said.
He went on to explain that conservatives need to recognize that amnesty is inevitable and surrender to the Left on the issue.
“If you’ve just been here working, we can’t deport 15-20 million people. That’s not feasible. Conservatives have to, like, recognize that fact,” he said.

In addition to being an amnesty lover, Crenshaw also supports red flag laws that eliminate due process and make a mockery of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution:
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has revealed a bombshell, perhaps accidentally, that he supported red flag gun control since before he started his run for Congress, showing that he lied on the campaign trail about his firm support of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
“I’ve been thinking seriously about this policy for years. It was not something I recently heard of. The NRA supported well-crafted GVRO,” Crenshaw told Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout, referring to a gun violence restraining order that would allow a judge to order the seizure of firearms from an individual deemed a public safety risk.
Crenshaw has gone further than supporting GVROs. He publicly endorsed pre-crime legislation such as red flag laws and The Threat Assessment, Prevention, and Safety (TAPS) Act following mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month.
After Bennett, an Infowars reporter and avid 2nd Amendment supporter, criticized Crenshaw on social media as a gun grabber, he sent a series of demeaning private messages to her on Twitter criticizing her activism and unwillingness to accept his excuses for infringing upon the 2nd Amendment. She exposed Crenshaw’s untoward behavior in a YouTube video.
“I hope you rethink your tactics in the future, because they are only effective at alienating people on both sides. You won’t ever persuade anyone, and you’ll drive out your allies,” Crenshaw wrote condescendingly to Bennett.
“When you alienate people, you remove yourself from any productive conversations. As you move forward as an activist, you should ask yourself if that’s really what you want,” he added.
Crenshaw was recently photographed having one of these “productive conversations” with gun confiscation activists from Moms Demand Action, a front group funded by billionaire former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
Crenshaw has picked up where the late songbird John McCain left off, continuing his predecessor’s promotion of globalism wrapped in the U.S. flag to unsuspecting Republicans.
