Opposition to the border wall is 100% fueled by spite for President Trump

Published

on

The excuses for the complete flip-flop being perpetrated by long-time leaders in the Democratic Party are laughable. They say it will be ineffective. They say it will cost too much. They say it’s immoral, racist, and the wrong message to send to our neighbors to the south.

None of these excuses existed in the recent past when they supported border security, including building barriers to slow the tremendous influx of drugs, crime, and illegal immigrants flooding into our nation across the southern border. What’s changed? The man behind the Resolute Desk.

Now that President Trump has become the champion fighting illegal immigration, it’s become incumbent on Democrats to change their tune. Some will say they’ve always been in favor of illegal immigration as some sort of voting benefit. While there’s at least a little plausibility in this argument, the more likely scenario is echoed in their past support for improved border security that has changed since President Trump took office. They’ve clearly changed their tune, which means either the risks have been mitigated (which they haven’t), or they need to oppose the President on his biggest political front.

In other words, they oppose the wall because they believe doing so will help them win more elections in 2020, including the presidential election itself.

But it’s not the politicians that concern me when it comes to opposition to the wall. They’re politicians, which means they’ll do what’s best for themselves. That’s just part of their nature. But when otherwise thoughtful and intelligent American citizens decide they oppose the border wall because of the person whose name will be attached to it, I cringe. How can they allow their spite to overrule common sense? Is their hatred for what President Trump represents as a person so strong that they’re willing to put American lives at risk by willfully ignoring the obvious dangers of a porous southern border?

Apparently, the answer is yes, and that’s terrifying.

Those who hate President Trump can call him names. They can protest his policies that aren’t clearly in the best interests of America. But the border wall IS in the best interests of America. It’s very challenging to make the argument otherwise, which is why even the talking heads on mainstream media are redirecting with statements about Mexico paying for it instead of coming out and saying the wall is a bad idea.

If Democrats were honest, they’d acknowledge their opposition to the border wall isn’t about what it is or how it will work, but WHO is pushing for it. Their hatred for Trump is manifesting as a self-destructive mindset for Americans. They need to look in the mirror and tell themselves the truth, which is no matter how much they hate the President, they shouldn’t let it distort their grasp on reality or their recognition of common sense.

Pirro: Democrats putting politics over people

Pirro Democrats putting politics over people

Following President Trump’s speech to America with his compromise offer to Democrats to secure the border and end the government shutdown, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was in rare form as she went after Democrats for instantly rejecting the proposal. Her biggest target was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The President has requested funds in order to build a small portion of the border wall, render humanitarian assistance, improve drug detection technology, and hire 2,750 additional border patrol agents and 75 immigration judge teams. In exchange, he’s offering three years of extended protection for DACA recipients and those with Temporary Protected Status.

Here was her response:

My Take

There are many conservatives who are against the proposal. Under normal circumstances, I would be as well. But we’re approaching a full month of the government shutdown. Enough is enough.

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall?

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall

The ball is back in the Democrats’ court. Some may say it’s been there the whole time. I do. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the leftist media narrative that the President is forcing the government shutdown to continue by not negotiating despite clear evidence to the contrary.

Nevertheless, the President has decided to make his compromise public. He took to national television to offer three years worth of protection to Dreamers.

Trump’s immigration offer brings polarized reactions from Dems and GOP

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trumps-immigration-offer-brings-polarized-reactions-from-dems-and-gopPresident Trump’s immigration compromise package to end the partial government shutdown drew sharp reactions from Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike.

In a televised White House address Saturday, Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to fund a barrier along the southern border with Mexico.

The Democrats’ responses were predictable. They don’t want any deal that includes the border wall because they realize if they can keep the wall from going forward, it harms the President’s chances for reelection in 2020.

Period.

This has never been about helping immigrants. Democrats are willing to harm both Dreamers and 800,000 Americans hurt by the shutdown in order to make the President look bad for 2020. They’re a disgrace to our nation’s government. Build the wall.

Cartoon: Is that another huge immigration caravan?

Cartoon Is that another huge immigration caravan

The 2016 GOP field seemed like a clown car routine compared to what was essentially five legitimate Democratic candidates. Whether they simply feared Hillary Clinton or didn’t want to take their shot following President Obama, many Democrats who were considered potentially serious candidates didn’t run.

That’s not the case for 2020. We may end up with more Democrats in the running than we had Republicans in 2016.

Cartoonist Michael Ramirez captured the growing group perfectly:

It’s certainly starting to look like a migrant caravan forming. Oh, wait. Those are actually American citizens.
