Earlier today President Trump fired a warning shot in the direction of obstructionist Democrat lawmakers, lead by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Senator Schumer has made it clear that he and his fellow Democrat Senators have no intention of agreeing to include the $5 billion Trump was asking for to fund the border wall in the CR bill.
Trump didn’t mince words when he told them “We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall” and if they don’t agree to change the “ridiculous immigration laws.”
Sounds good to us…
ENOUGH with the games!
President Trump tweeted:
We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with. Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!
…..close the Southern Border. Bring our car industry back into the United States where it belongs. Go back to pre-NAFTA, before so many of our companies and jobs were so foolishly sent to Mexico. Either we build (finish) the Wall or we close the Border……
….The United States looses soooo much money on Trade with Mexico under NAFTA, over 75 Billion Dollars a year (not including Drug Money which would be many times that amount), that I would consider closing the Southern Border a “profit making operation.” We build a Wall or…..
The Mexican economy is entirely dependent on the US for their survival. Trump’s call to shut down the border is not going to be well-received by their government, who can’t seem to stop tens of thousands of South Americans from crossing their borders, as they make their way to our borders looking for vulnerable spots in our wall where they can cross over and illegally enter the US.
Earlier this month, President Trump held a televised meeting with the future Speaker of the HOuse, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to make a transparent deal on the border wall and our broken immigration laws. Congresswoman Pelosi scoffed at President Trump’s suggestion that the House would be willing to include funding for our border wall in the upcoming CR. One week later, Nancy Pelosi, who isn’t even the House Speaker yet, found herself with egg on her face, as the House passed the CR that included over 5 billion in funding for Trump’s border wall. Democrats in the Senate are saying they won’t fund the wall and are willing to allow the government to be partially shut down. Of course, their only objective is use the shut down to embarrass President Trump.
Here’s Chuck Schumer in 2009 explaining why comprehensive immigration reform is necessary. Schumer explains: “illegal immigration is wrong,” and that when we use phrases like “undocumented workers” we undermine the seriousness of illegal aliens in America. Schumer also talks about the importance of enforcing our immigration laws.
This video is only 9 years old…what’s changed now, Chucky? Maybe because we finally have a president who’s serious about securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws? Maybe because President Trump’s not a DEMOCRAT?
