The open borders Democrats are absolutely determined to stop the construction of President Trump’s planned border wall, and they’ve resorted to a disturbing threat to do so.
During the Obama-era, Democrats claimed that Republicans used “government shutdowns” as a tool to “attack America,” despite the fact that the actual harm to Americans came from Obama, not the government shut down itself, as he ordered specific actions to make an impact. Well, fast-forward to today and the border wall showdown looming when Congress returns to Washington, and wouldn’t you know it, Democrats are threatening to shut down the government.
Meanwhile, President Trump was elected due to overwhelming support of his immigration plans and the wall still receives widespread support among Americans. That’s not to mention, securing our borders is one of the most important jobs the federal government has, yet Democrats refuse to do so because they require the influx of future voters in order to win any elections because nobody like Democrats.
From Breitbart News:
Democrats are threatening to shutter many government agencies on October 1 unless President Donald Trump gives up his popular campaign promise to build the border wall against Mexico, according to Politico.
In response, Trump’s deputies are offering political compromises to Democrats, including a rise in domestic spending, says Politico:
The White House is pushing a deal on Capitol Hill to head off a government shutdown that would lift strict spending caps long opposed by Democrats in exchange for money for President Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico, multiple sources said.
Marc Short, the White House’s director of legislative affairs, met with top staffers from both parties on the Senate Appropriations Committee last week to make a hard sell for the proposal, the sources said.
Short — who said the border funding would be used for a “double fence” — stressed that the White House is insisting on a down payment for construction this fall. Short also lobbied for a big budget increase for the Pentagon, another priority for Trump.
If Democrats block the spending plan, many government agencies will have to send their employees home. But national security agencies, and various aid programs, such as the Social Security program, would keep operating.
Trump’s pending request for an October funding package of $1.6 billion would help build roughly 62 miles of border wall. In May, Democrats — aided by a passive GOP leadership — blocked a 2017 funding package that would have helped quickly build 42 miles of wall.
Led by Sen. Chuck Schumer, Democrats are hoping to block any wall construction, so protecting the northward flow of government-dependent workers to Democratic-run cities, and also breaking Trump’s 2016 primary campaign promise.
This is exactly why Democrats keep losing elections; they’re like dealing with a bunch of preschoolers.
