As Twitchy has reported, President Trump had a brief and apparently contentious meeting with Democrat leadership Wednesday afternoon on border security, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying no to any sort of wall or barrier at the souther border and Trump saying, “Bye-bye.”
Hasn’t Pelosi been willing to discuss any other more modern form of border security, such as drones? We ask because we’re wondering how drones are going to scope out underground tunnels? Because apparently she’s really concerned about tunnels.
Per source in the room: Pelosi talked a lot about tunnels. She kept saying that a wall won't stop people coming through tunnels.

the wall just got 10 feet deeper

Lol, well played!

It takes one second to walk across an unrestricted border. It takes months to dig a tunnel. Let them dig.

Yup. It won’t stop people from flying over either. But, tunnels and flying are detectable, difficult, and preventable. Walking is easy.

“It won’t solve the problem 100% so why bother doing anything” doesn’t seem like a sound argument.

Jesus Christ…why does it work in Israel. Why does it work in El Paso….San Diego….of course there will be some tunnels, but a solidly built wall will stop MOST people from coming through. It makes no sense to be against this. @SpeakerPelosi is a dotard.

Only a few people-very organized people will be able to construct such a tunnel and make it workable….. without a barrier… anybody can just simply walk across and we can only hope border patrol will stop them…. but a barrier makes it much more difficult
I’ll take a wall

Will a #wall stop more people than are stopped now? The answer is absolutely. Therefore, it is not ineffective. You can argue that it is not worth it, you can't argue that it doesn't work.

It encourages asylum seekers to go to designated checkpoints to apply instead of entering illegally. It also acts as a deterrent for smugglers as they will have to invest more to get in Making it less lucrative. Meanwhile there entrance points and methods will be more predictable

But with that 'technology' thing #Democrats continually speak of, wouldn't heat seeking sensors be used to detect tunneling and seismic waves be used to collapse tunnels?
Guess #Pelosi doesn't know 'jack bone' about technology, either.

We can detect and close tunnels. They are not easy to dig either. Pelosi is not stupid but acts like it.

Then Pelsoi should fund to cover up the tunnels. ??⚓️?️?
— Thomas Phillips MAGAVeteran (@cowboytogo) January 9, 2019
She'd happily fund the tunnels I suppose.

Doesn’t Pelosi get Border Security is multi pronged…wall, tunnel detection, drone, guards.

Why is it so difficult to understand? If we build a wall, this could potentially free up agents to investigate for tunnels. Why is that logic so hard to understand?
— Forgotten (@Annie_7316) January 9, 2019
At the very least, construction will give the opportunity to discover tunnels and then provide a foundation to place continuous monitoring devices/sensors that can detect disturbances caused by digging or climbing instead of the random fly-overs or miles-apart sensor posts.

Funny how @SpeakerPelosi and @chuckschumer were not concerned about tunnels when they passed #SecureFenceAct. Maybe if our do nothing government actually enforced the we would not be in this mess. They have refused to clean up our bad immigration laws for decades.
— #RaiseYourHorns?? (@LainWalk) January 9, 2019
That’s funny because a few years ago her side-kick Schumer was clamoring for a border wall. I seriously cannot handle the stupid, hypocritical bullshit that lives within Washington DC. They don’t care about us. They care only about themselves, their elections and their status.

By this logic, we should not have TSA screening at airports because terrorists will just try to find a way around it…
— Sam Borland (@borland_sam) January 9, 2019
so is ol' nance willing to extend that logic to gun control? criminals can still get guns, so might as well just scrap all those useless laws

I couldn’t care less about a politician’s plan for border security. I want hearings that include security experts, architects, land owners, and environmental groups. I want to know the plan, scope of work, and total cost. If it’s done in phases where and how much?
— Charlie Ide (@vikingshipper) January 9, 2019
If she’s talking about tunnels, she already lost the argument.
— Stoneman (@timothystoner) January 9, 2019
Raise any objection, solve nothing. She is a Soviet style negotiator.

‘Bye bye!’ Trump’s meeting with Dem leadership ended QUICKLY (Chuck & Nancy are NOT happy) https://t.co/2UhFzQaBi0
