Donald Trump’s signature campaign promise was to build a wall across the U.S.-Mexico border. He has worked to make it a reality, as Democrats in Congress obstructed every step of the way. Although he’s made progress, much is yet to be done. Now, a new report suggests Trump is about to make a bold move to ensure the wall continues to get built.
Democrats love to say that Trump has failed to get his wall built. It’s yet another lie they spread through the fake news. In all honesty, the only reason the wall hasn’t been finished by now is that Congress has refused to cooperate with the president.
Meanwhile, liberals have abused the courts to hold up progress on the wall. Every time, though, they lose.
But the fact remains that, despite the left’s best efforts, the wall is being built. President Trump has targetted key areas along the border to build new wall or replace pathetic “barriers” that were once there. We have constructed 100 miles of modern border fencing—with state-of-the-art surveillance tech—with more going up.
The reason it’s taken this long is because, even when Congress was in Republican hands, they refused to cooperate with the president. As usual, Congress proved it is good for nothing. President Trump had to take drastic measures to stem the insane tide of migrants bombarding our border. He declared a state of emergency to move funds from the military projects to address the crisis.
Now, according to a new report, he’s planning on acquiring an additional $7.2 billion to ensure Americans are safe.
The paper reported January 13 that the president would use his national emergency powers to: divert an additional $7.2 billion in Pentagon funding for border wall construction this year, five times what Congress authorized him to spend on the project in the 2020 budget, according to internal planning figures obtained by The Washington Post…
According to the plans, the funding would give the government enough money to complete [a total of] approximately 885 miles of new fencing by spring 2022, far more than the 509 miles the administration has slated for the U.S. border with Mexico. [Source: Breitbart]
If this plan goes through, Trump will have upped his border wall spending to $18.4 billion.
The new plans would give him enough money to build border walls across 885 miles. That would secure a huge region from California to Texas. It would be virtually impossible for illegal immigrants, drug cartels, and human smugglers to continue their operations.
We’ve watched as criminals flooded our country for years. Our government was unwilling to do anything to protect our communities. In fact, Democrats have encouraged illegal immigration, because they think it will help them win more elections.
But the facts are undeniable. Illegal immigration is a blight on our country. It weakens our national security, drives down wages, and contributes to the drug epidemic (not to mention it’s a human rights nightmare).
Yet only Donald Trump has been bold enough to take a stand. Even facing overwhelming opposition from Democrats (and corrupt Republicans), he has continued to fight for our country.
The reality is, Congress should have given him the money on his first day. The wall would have gone up by now and we’d all be much safer. The current economy would be even better, with more jobs and higher wages for Americans.
The fact that our lawmakers are so apposed to real solutions is staggering. Trump has to find creative ways to acquire funding—and fight liberals in the courts.
Imagine what would be possible, if Congress was actually on his side? What if our lawmakers wanted to work with the president, to the benefit of all Americans?
What if Congress negotiated and cooperated with the White House, scoring legislation that made our lives better?
But the bitter, do-nothing Democrats have rejected every chance at working with Trump. They are incapable of actually doing their own job.
Hmm, I guess they should be replaced, huh?
