    Clearly he's another member of the FBI conspiracy to undermine the greatest U.S. president of all time.
    Wow, this thing just gets bigger!

    Funny that ABC skated around that he was a Democrat appointed by president Obama and had been publicly praised by HRC in the past.

    Wow. A prominent Democrat who spent less than three years with the CBP is opposed to Trump's Wall! Well colour me shocked!

    Well it is a big waste of time and taxpayers money. Why not stringently enforce our immigration laws which would be a tiny fraction of the tremendous cost to build this idiotic border wall.

    Care to expand on your assertion that his party/politician affiliation has anything to do with his experienced opinion on the border issue? I'm an independent voter that feels a border wall will be a bigger national failure than the Berlin wall. A stupidly expensive wall is a stupid idea, and a big fat lie that Mexico would foot the bill.

    Are you well informed on the annual cost of maintenance & patrol of our current 600 miles of wall? I'm not. I bet Gil knows the facts better than you do.

    Would you say the border wall expansion can be financially justified vs the benefit of $ spent elsewhere... on US citizens (ie student loan interest)?
