Didnt Dems wanted a built Wall before too?

You sure that wasn't ....Democrats were for "Border Security"...?

Tons of Trump supports get ...Border security confused with Trump's 2,200 mile ...30 ft high Border wall.
Alot of democrats agree with a wall
It appears a fourth grader composed the OP title and question.

If you can't handle the weed, then just chill and read what others post here at DP.

The Secure Fence Act of 2006

The Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was passed by a Republican Congress and signed by President George W. Bush, authorized about 700 miles of fencing along certain stretches of land between the border of the United States and Mexico.

The act also authorized the use of more vehicle barriers, checkpoints and lighting to curb illegal immigration, and the use of advanced technology such as satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Several Democrats voted for this act.

Trump criticized the 2006 fence as too modest during the 2016 campaign.

"Now we got lucky because it was such a little wall, it was such a nothing wall, no, they couldn't get their environmental -- probably a snake was in the way or a toad," Trump said. (Actually, the project didn’t face environmental hurdles; we rated that part of the claim Mostly False.)

So, no, Democrats didn't want a concrete wall along the border.

On the other hand, Democrats are clearly not for "open borders," as the Trumpers love to claim.
What happend to that now? Hmmmm

Yes, even Obama built a section of wall but they found out what most people realize, a wall doesn't work. People will just go over, under or through.
Alot of democrats agree with a wall

I agree with strategic sections of wall and so do the cities that have already constructed them. Walling the entire border is infeasible and not without negative consequences. The controversial wall is about much more than the wall. It's a bigoted and protectionist monolith. I don't support trump's message and demand for a wall. What he's done with it is poor politics that i dont think belong in our govt. If you can't pitch an idea without dishonestly demonizing and trashing a group of people, if that's what it takes to mobilize action, then it can't be that great of an idea for the people both us and them.
