They are afraid that it will work and they will look even worse for fighting it. That's the problem.

Another question would be: if it's such an emergency why didn't the repubs do it sooner? They had all 3 branches of govt for 2 years

So even when they had a majority, not enough people thought it was worth it.. now all of a sudden 1 year before 2020 it's an emergency worth shutting down the government..? Considering the amount of illegals is at a 12 year low and most of em came through legal entry points, it just doesn't seem like an emergency.

"simple majority" isn't enough to pass, I think they needed 5 dems to pass it

Ya..especially when the simple majority would be against it. Doesn't he need to win over more people now than he did then?

Ok.. so my question remains.. why is he taking a stand now.. when it'll be harder for him to do? Is there any evidence this "emergency" has gotten worse since he took office?

I think it a combo of things,I am in the Philly area and drug od's are the number 1 killer of ppl under 60 now(think the whole state too?) There is a ton of pressure for him to stop the drug "Crisis" . 90%+ of the illegal drugs come into the usa vs being manufactured here and almost all the fentenyel (spelling?) A wall will help with that, whether it helps 1% or 100% it will help.
The second part is the illegal immigrants themselves, there are a reported 20-40 million of them here and they cost the us taxpayer big time. I read upwards of 70k per yr per person.Many of them are unvaccinated and disease once thought beat are on the rise again. These are however ppl and I feel for them, both GOP and Dems have not done much to make them legit citz,etc.
The Gov spends 7 million $ per second, the cost of the wall is roughly 12.5 hrs of what we spend a day.
I personally feel it would work somewhat, if it doesnt, see the above meme
the dems would have a win/win situ if it does not.

Ok.. so again.. why did he wait until now to take a stand?
I tried to find info on your $72k+ per year statistic but interestingly enough instead I found something saying that in 2016, 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States paid $11 billion in state and local taxes.

he was always asking 4 it since day1, are asking why he is fighting harder now than b4? i dunno..116 billion a yr bud http://www.irli.org/single-post/2017/09/27/New-FAIR-Study-Illegal-Immigration-Costs-116-billion-Annually?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh4TMqfLr3wIVk4rICh0DHwYGEAAYASAAEgIGIfD_BwE

Yes, why now? Because 2020 is fast approaching and this wall thing is purely political. If he could build it and put a 10 foot gold "Trump" sign on it he probably would. Also I have to question the legitimacy of stats from FAIR...less immigration of all types is kinda their thing. But ya a large part of that "cost" is keeping many other people employed.. ICE, border patrol, teachers, etc.. and I highly doubt those people would be interested in filling the jobs the handful of illegals who don't cross using legal entry points currently do. If you want to curb illegal immigration, crack down on companies who employ them.

I guess Supreme Court doesn't effect getting Trump's Mexico wall done and I think technically they've only had majority judges for 1 year but my point remains.
PS I'm not Alexandria.. But I do want to lick them eyeballs :P
