President Trump held a long meeting today with his cabinet members about the wall and about the “bipartisan committee” working on border security. Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly refused to concede on funds for a wall in press conferences (see video below) where she stubbornly refuses to give at all.
The president also spoke with The New York Times about how he feels it’s a “waste of time” to try and make a deal on the border security with the Democrats:
“I’m going to wait until the 15th. I think it’s a waste of time. They’ll probably be overly generous with things that you don’t need in terms of money. They’ll give you more money than you need for things that won’t help very much. And they’ll give you money for good things, too. But based on what I hear and based on what I read, they don’t want to give money for the wall.”
He spoke out on the wall today about why he feels he may need to declare a “national emergency” to build the wall at our southern border:
The president went into details about what’s being done at the border to repair and build a wall right now:
“So we’re building a lot of it. We’ll be up to about 115 miles of wall, some renovated, some new, and we’re going to make a big step in the next week or so prior to my doing anything. But actually having a national emergency does help the process. It would certainly help.”
President Trump says there’s a good chance he will declare a national emergency and he will build a wall:

“There’s a good chance we’ll have to “declare a national emergency. We will, at the same time, be building the wall regardless. We’re building a wall & we’re building a lot of walls, but I can do it a lot faster the other way”
The president says that he’ll wait until after the State of the Union speech to announce anything like a national emergency.
Nancy Pelosi speaks in bits and pieces, but the video below is just word salad from the Democrat who refuses to put the American people before her politics.
She refuses to say that money will go for a wall, but later in her comments, she calls a wall a “structure.” She’s ridiculous, and President Trump knows it.
The bottom line is that President Trump wants to secure the border and a physical barrier is just common sense. Whatever she wants to call it, experts have already said we need a wall/fence/barrier. President Trump tweeted out a reply to Pelosi’s ridiculous comments (see below)
“There’s not going to be any wall money in the legislation,”
@SpeakerPelosi vowed again today

Let’s call them WALLS from now on and stop playing political games! A WALL is a WALL!
Large sections of WALL have already been built with much more either under construction or ready to go. Renovation of existing WALLS is also a huge part of the plan to finally, after many decades, properly Secure Our Border. The Wall is getting done one way or the other!
Democrats need to come to the table and put politics aside.
Our border is wide open with either a fence or absolutely nothing to prevent illegals from crossing over.
We should demand a border fence, barrier, wall…whatever the Democrats want to call it. We cannot stop people from coming over as it is.

Watch the video below from just a few days ago:

The illegal alien in the case below is a repeat offender who was deported and came back across our border to sexually assault another child! This is not uncommon and is a way for these criminals to skate without being arrested.
Even though the Democrats twisted the president’s words to claim he’s a racist, he’s correct in saying that they are “not sending their best”.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

The case below highlights how dangerous our broken border security system is without a wall and changes in policy.
An early morning traffic stop near New Caney led to the arrest of a Mexican national who has served at least three stints in U.S. prisons for sexually abusing children.
Marvin Yovani Mejia Ramos, 50, was turned over to the Department of Homeland Security after his arrest on 69 North by an alert Precinct 4 deputy.
Ramos gave a fake name, according to Precinct 4, but the deputy ran an onsite fingerprint scan that revealed his true identity
“Mejia Ramos is a very dangerous convicted criminal that is in our country illegally,” Precinct 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden said. “Great job by our deputy that located him and is once again bringing him to justice.”
Ramos served eight years for continuous sexual assault of a child in Lancaster, California.
In Los Angeles, he served six years for sexual assault of a child and two more years for lewd acts with a child under the age of 14.
Ramos was deported in 2013 but soon returned, according to Precinct 4. They say he was arrested in Houston in 2015 for DWI, again under a fake name.
