A prediction: when the “Wall” along the southern border begins to be constructed, the left’s professional activists will implement an extensive disruption campaign.
It will be modeled after the Keystone Pipeline protest (that involved a makeshift city of 10,000), but be more mobile and flexible, spread out along the border that marks the path of the wall.
Protestors will stand in the path of construction, just at activists have, in the past, chained themselves to trees in the Northwest to stop logging.
At night, other operatives will target the Wall for destructive sorties. Those may occasionally include the use of light explosives, easily smuggled from Mexico.
Meanwhile, protestors will block primary and secondary roads that ICE vehicles travel to remove illegals from the country. They’ll set junk cars afire, and deploy some of the same traffic blocking tactics used this summer at Trump rallies, but more aggressive. Say, a hijacked gasoline tanker truck set afire on a critical bridge.
When families are sent back South across the border, a select few will enter an “underground railroad” effort, like that used to smuggle downed Allies fliers out of France back to England in WW2. Legacy media, complicit with lawbreaking, will support the resistance. Imagine a 60 Minutes special tracking the movement of Juan (arrested for a non-violent felony), Maria and their two small children, deported and then transported up through Texas with the help of Tom and Betty Carlson, Lutherans from Brownsville, Texas.
The aim will be to soften the resolve of people and provoke them to call for their Congressional representatives to vastly soften the enforcement of immigration law. Legislators will initially propose resolutions to stop “the disenfranchisement of immigrant families.” The liberal media will broadcast full-throated support of the Border Resistance Movement (BRM). (Will we see “#ImmigrantLivesMatter”?)
The religious social service organizations (501(c )(3)’s), now receiving millions from Crony Capitalism, will send teams of “missionaries” to help the BRM. (Protests with religious message signage, chants and songs. Expect Communion in the desert.)
I hope I'm wrong, but my guess is that this saga will dominate the news cycles for months.
