Last week, House Democrats introduced “emergency” legislation that was supposed to address the crisis on our southern border. Far left activists and Democrat politicians have been screaming about the conditions on the border at camps that are overflowing, thanks to horrible immigration policies that have been in place for far too long, while Democrats and activist judges fight to prevent any changes to the policies.
There was only one problem with the bill—it didn’t include any funding for a border wall. The bill also didn’t include any funding for additional beds at border facilities that are housing illegal immigrants and asylum seekers.
Democrats even bragged that the bill didn’t include any provisions asked for by Republicans.
The Blaze reports – While the bill includes nearly $1 billion for “processing facilities, food, water, sanitary items, blankets, medical services, and safe transportation” and more than $1 billion for programs, including legal services, intended to help migrant children, Democrats boast the bill does not fund Republican ideas, including bolstering border security.
Instead, the bill places strict requirements on the Trump administration requiring government officials follow regulations related to the detainment of migrant children and prohibits Homeland Security enforcement against refugee sponsors.
The requirements and lack of funding for border security are intended to “hold the administration accountable and to protect the rights and dignity of migrants,” Democrats said in a press release.
In spite of the enormous amount of negative press, unrelenting attacks from Democrats and roadblocks by Obama appointed judges, President Trump, appears to be undeterred, as he presses on, determined to build a wall on our southern border.
To prove that he isn’t giving up and that the wall is being built, President Trump shared a great video showing the construction of the border wall. The video serves as a reminder to his critics that he is committed to keeping his promise to the American people to build a wall on our southern border.
