President Trump hasn’t forgotten about the border wall. On a day buzzing with stories about the White House, Trump’s latest demand nearly slipped under the radar. He wants a whopping $18 billion to fund the wall- and he just might get it.
Democrats hate talking about border security because their party is stuffed with pro-illegal immigration activists. Trump has only managed to keep discussions about the wall on the table by offering them a compromise.
If the Dems agree to cough up funding for the wall, Trump has promised to renew the protections Obama put in place for the Dreamers, a horde of young illegals granted pseudo-residency a few years ago.
Conservatives are furious. They desperately want the wall to be built but hate the idea of comprising on the Dreamers. Trump, however, seems to be willing to make the deal.
The New York Post writes: “The Department of Homeland Security said the administration wants to roughly double the fencing on the southern border. The administration wants $33 billion overall to increase security along the border, with the rest, about $15 billion, paying for ‘critical physical border security requirements…’”
2018 has gotten off to a fast start. Washington appears to be in disarray as mainstream media outlets do their best to undercut the administration. Building the wall would easily be one of the greatest things that the Trump administration could accomplish.
His campaign was built upon promises to ignore liberal claptrap about immigration and gain control of the border. His supporters are still waiting for that promise to be fulfilled.
