President Trump ran a heavy handed campaign of securing the American southern border throughout the election season.
He told the people who turned up by the tens of thousands at many events he would build the wall across America's southern border and that he would fight to end the flowing of illegal drugs into America as well as deport the illegal criminals who plagued society.
That's exactly what he's been fighting hard for, receiving opposition from both the dinosaurs in the Republican Party as well as the progressives on the Democratic side of the aisle.
The House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday of this week approved a $44.3 billion boost in spending for the Department of Homeland Security. Fortunately there is finally a plan laid out which is including the $1.6 billion down payment on the construction of a wall along the US border with Mexico?
The newest proposal marks a proposed $1.7 billion increase over the current fiscal year in order to ensure the groundwork on the border wall will begin this September.
“This bill fully supports our men and women on the frontlines who work tirelessly to keep us safe,” said Republican Representative Rodney Frelinghuysen, Chairman of the Appropriations Committee. “The bill also provides the necessary funding for critical technology and physical barriers to secure our borders.”
However in a response to the new funding, House Democratic leaders offered their own warning to Republicans hoping to put hundreds of millions of dollars toward President Trump’s border wall next year which is essentially, “You’re on your own.”
The savage disdain for the will of the people from the Democratic Party is obvious, and they refuse to participate in allowance of President Trump's fulfillment of his agenda.
“They know that the majority of the Democrats don’t support funding for that wall,” Representative Linda Sánchez, Vice Chairman of the Democratic Caucus, told reporters gathered outside the Capitol.
“If they choose to include it, then they are basically saying, ‘We have the votes among the Republican Party to pass this without a single Democratic vote’ and if they’re not successful, the blame lies squarely at their feet, because they are in the majority.”
The newest threat from the failing left does, however, hold merit, even with the Democrats’ minority status, because Speaker Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders have since struggled on countless occasions to rally the 218 Republican votes which needed to pass any major government spending bills.
The opposition from Conservative deficit hawks who want to end unnecessary spending and have special interests to serve however continue to ‘get in the way’ causing great rifts amongst the party lines.
Currently, Republican leaders must rely on Democratic votes to pass many of those bills and prevent government shutdowns in general, which gives the power back to the Democrats in order to shut down Trump's agenda.
Democrats also used similar leverage in April, when Trump first insisted on a substantial new border wall funding bill to be combined in a 2017 omnibus bill. Democrats were able to successfully remove that implementation at the last minute.
Democratic leaders are now intending to use that type of tactic again this summer as the September date for building the wall continues to approach.
Representative Joseph Crowley, who is the Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, has stated that “We intend to exercise it to keep that language out, to keep the money out,” going on to characterize the border wall funding as “a gross, negligent waste of taxpayer dollars. I won’t speak on behalf of all the Democratic Caucus, but I do think the overwhelming, overwhelming, majority of our membership is not interested in a single penny towards the wall.”
Trump supporters and many traditional values Democrats are furious as this clear defiance of their winning vote in November. In many border states, there have been increases in gang violence as well as bloodshed from Mexican Drug Cartels that have flowed into their respective cities.
Heroin and methamphetamine use is not only killing more Americans than gun violence, but there is indeed armed violence and theft as well as a multitude of other crimes occurring because of the trafficking of narcotics and the fiendish addicts trying to ‘get their fix’.
People are fed up, across party lines. The democrats have refused to offer a solution to these problems but yet they stand in the way of President Trump's attempt to combat the issues that affect families across America.
It certainly seems that the Democratic Party is completely out of touch even with traditional liberals outside of the Southern California pro-communist agenda. People in rural states and across small cities have completely bailed on the Democratic Party over their inability to recognize the importance of securing the future or the American society.
Progressive agendas have ran rampant for far too long in America under Obama, and the results are absolutely terrifying to middle America and southerners in general.
The amount of social justice safe space focus from the Democratic Party shows that they're more concerned with marxist ideals than the security and livelihood of the residents who deal with the problems related to lack of border sustainability.
Outside of the nonstop drug trafficking that's affecting border states, there's a multitude of other issues that hurt the people who reside there.
Illegal immigration has ran rampant for the past three decades to the point that Americans are forced to compete with illegal aliens in order to even find gainful employment, especially in the trade sector.
Iron Workers, Carpenters, Concrete, Brick Masons, Painters, Drywallers, Erection Crews, even Landscapers can walk onto a job site all across the southern wall of America from Arizona through Texas into Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and anywhere in between, and see dozens if not hundreds of illegals taking jobs that should be high paying from them forcing the hourly income of skilled workers down.
These are the issues that matter to Americans. This is why the wall matters. This is why the people voted for President Trump. They realize securing the existence of American people and a future for American children relies largely upon the deportation of illegal immigrants and the concept of building a wall to keep them the hell out of America.
Not only does illegal immigration cost jobs, and create an ‘industry of crime’, but it costs taxpayers a fortune in the process.
For every illegal who takes welfare and food stamps and housing, that's cash coming out of the taxpayer's pockets.
For every illegal who is incarcerated or imprisoned, that's taxpayer's money that's paying to feed and clothe and house them until they're deported. Often times many are deported and come back and are deported again dozens of times over costing a financial burden the likes of which most cannot comprehend.
Democrats may try and argue those costs aren't that high. Sensible individuals argue that any cost is too high when the bridges and roads in America are collapsing and our infrastructure, in general, is broken and decayed.
Americans see the success of places like Tokyo, Japan, who do not have an immigration issue, to begin with as just Native Japanese, where the infrastructure and architecture look like something out of a science fiction film, and the people are prospering greatly; and Americans are irate.
Rightfully so, with criticism towards the incompetent governance that has existed for several decades just washing their hands and repeating the same process over and over wasting funds that could be used to HELP Americans.
People want change, in fact, they demand it. The wall must be built, and it will be. Those who stand in the way will eventually be viewed as the ‘enemy of the people’ if they're not already facing that label.
