Even Texans Think Bu$hCo Is An Idiot

It's good to see that there are minds that work & understand in Texas. This whole wall thing was just abhorrent from its inception. How can any ReThug claim building a wall will make for more freedom? It does prove one thing however, irony is dead in the hearts of these racists.

Officials from southern Texas on Wednesday criticized a federal plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration, calling it a "wall of shame."

They said the wall would hurt the economy and the environment and was an affront to both Mexicans and Mexican-Americans in southern Texas, where economic and cultural ties to Mexico are deep.

"This wall would do damage to those of us living on both sides of the wall," said State Sen. Eddie Lucio from the border city of Brownsville. "This is a wall of shame that we neither want nor welcome.

"Texas is connected to Mexico by 23 bridges. Through these bridges we maintain our centuries-old friendships and blood ties with Mexico, as well as the trade and tourism which benefits this state and the entire United States of America."

My emphasis.
