IMO, freshly-made tortillas are the best and the ones made here in the USA are just as good as the ones made in Mexico.

Someone mentioned today the Big Bend Resort straddles the border and 4 of the holes on the golf course are in Mexico. How is that portion of the border secure? Do golfers need a passport?

I hate it when you are at a restaurant and they ask you corn or flour, and then when they bring the corn, its some rubbery yellow disk they pulled out of a package, and probably nuked. I like the ones the old grandma used to make in the taco truck off Senate Rd. (FM 529). The truck was named Uncles Tacos in Spanish. She would make white corn tortillas by hand from before daylight till about 1 or 2 pm. She didn't cook, that was the daughters job. Grandma's tortillas made the meal.

darn - I was hoping that red line was a major fault line that could be triggered with some deep underground nuclear weapons testing.  Once triggered, everything south and west would drift off to the Pacific.

Of course, I'd draw the line to include Ft Lauderdale and Miami as well.

Another $728 MILLION to fund the wall build.

"Defense giant Lockheed Martin has agreed to sell 90 new F-35 fighter jets to the US Defense Department for $8.5 billion -- a deal that amounts to more than $700 million in savings over the last batch of aircraft delivered.
Lockheed Martin credited President Donald Trump for helping to "accelerate negotiations" and "drive down the price" of what is already the most expensive weapons program in history.

Only 55 of the 90 planes are for the US, so our portion is $455M. Lockheed announced before Trump got involved that the cost would drop 6-7% in this batch, so Trump gets credit for bringing them down another 1-2%.

IMO advocating spending the "savings" is typically a liberal approach.

OTOH, Obama spent $9.2 Billion last year on the UN and its related organizations. What do we have to show for that? That amount would build most of the wall.

Sec. Kelly is a credible voice on securing the border and I like what he's saying - http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/02/02/dhs-secretary-border-wall-should-be-finished-in-two-years.html

"The wall will be built where it's needed first, and then it will be filled in. That's the way I look at it," Kelly said. "I really hope to have it done within the next two years."

Fox News traveled with Kelly in McAllen, Texas, on Wednesday where he saw first-hand the challenges for Border Patrol agents. The Rio Grande Valley, known as the "RGV sector," is among the busiest. On any given day, Border Patrol agents pick up at least 600 people who have crossed the Mexican border, entering the U.S. illegally. 

Those personnel, he explained, are all part of the broader plan for securing the border.  

"Any discussion about the protection of our southwest border involves discussion of physical barriers but also of technological sensors, things like that,” he said. “But it's a layered approach, and it’s got to be backed up by great men and women who are going to make sure that the wall is intact."
...
“We're looking at the money aspect,” he acknowledged. But he said the White House is working with Congress on the timetable. 

“I think the funding will come relatively quickly and like I said, we will build it where it's needed first as identified by the men and women who work the border," Kelly emphasized.

Kelly said it will be only a matter of months before construction begins. 

Kelly also said he supported a "surge" of resources to the border so that processing those who cross illegally can happen in a matter of weeks, not "600 plus days."

"If we could surge the court proceedings -- immigration court proceedings on the border -- and within the law, do it very rapidly ... I think that alone would act as a huge deterrent for people who are considering making the trip up," he said.

Agree, $9.2B would go a long way, and we would get something for our expenditures.  Investing in the wall makes sense as democratic illegal immigration nonsense costs way more than $10B a year.  Free health care, free school, often do not pay taxes estimated at between $99B and $113B.

Update on the wall:

The Trump administration announced Tuesday it will waive environmental and other laws and regulations that would impede the first phase of construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border.

Despite the waiver, construction will not begin for at least several more months because federal officials are currently reviewing a protest by a company that competed for, but was not awarded, a building contract. That process delays any construction on the prototypes, which have been authorized by congressional appropriators, until November at the earliest.

Update on the wall:

President Trump threatened to shut the government down over funding for the wall, which begs the question from a reporter as to why there would be a government shutdown over funding for a wall that Mexico is supposed to pay for.

Good question.

turden loves to nevertrump on this one. Then, someone points out that saying 'Mexico is going to pay for the wall' isn't the same thing as saying  'the wall will only be built if Mexico puts the money up front before we start building'.
It's like turden is totally unfamiliar with accounting theory or accounts receivable.

Pretty sure I understand it.

It was a good question - huckabee danced around it.

He said Mexico would pay for the wall, not that taxpayers would pay first.

Obama said you could keep your plan if you liked it. He just left out that a lot of plans would be cancelled.

E.G. Seems to have forgotten what itellectual honesty is.

Weird, rambling, and oddly ineffective answer.

If you can't see the parallels, it's not my fault. Then again, you did fall for the Obama line as well - starting to see a trend.

Try and keep up or go back to the kids table.

It's a dumb question because he never said Mexico would pay up front. In fact, he's said they'd collect afterward.

A good question is how will Mexico pay for it. The methods he's said either aren't legal (e.g. taxing money being sent to Mexico) or would be passed onto US consumers (i.e. taxing imports).

Anyone else notice Tuesday night that Trump didn't do the usual rally bit of "who's going to pay for it?"

Of course Turdens comment is nonsense.  
Of course it would take a congressional effort to tax money returning to Mexico.  

I think taxes on imports can be achieved in NAFTA renegotiation.   While congress gets to approve that, as a treaty (pay attention leftist), they do not get to alter the details.  They will not likely hold up a largely favorable and necessary update to NAFTA over the wall payment plan.

Of course he didn't do it at the rally… He knows he's losing this PR battle.

Pay tax on imports? You have to be naïve to think those won't get passed on to the consumer. That is not really a good solution.

I would actually have to disagree that Trump is losing the PR battle.  He's defining the conversation which is all about him.  You know how the Democrats have always been the party that frames the conversation much better than the idiots in the GOP?  That's not happening anymore.

I think Trump's strategy, whether he knows it or not, is to have the light shine on him while others get sh1t done.  For example, Kushner is very quietly working on a Middle East peace plan.  Not sure that won't be a sell-out to the PLO but the overall strategy seems to be what I've said.

When products are made in multiple places, producers from Mexico could only partially raise their prices to cover the new taxes.   If they raise their prices they lose sales and market position.

So now it is a tax only on things partially made in Mexico?

Either way, taxes will be passed on to American consumers.
