The showdown resulting in the shutdown of government is really on the Democrats, even if President Donald Trump has courageously taken ownership of it. It’s a badge of honor he wears as he stands up for most Americans who really want a wall constructed on our southern border. And it’s a promise he’s attempting to keep for Americans, especially those who’ve experienced the tragedy of losing a loved one at the hands of an illegal alien, criminal or otherwise.
Democrats in Congress don’t want to protect you or your families. They don’t care about diseases brought into this country by migrants. Nor are they concerned about the drug trafficking, human trafficking, sex abuse of women and children, violent gangs and so many other crimes associated with illegal immigration. Even if they don’t actually say it, their actions, or lack thereof, certainly do.
The arguments Democratic leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, among others, make are silly. They claim a wall is ineffective. Try to convince Israel of that. How many people are successfully crossing their border illegally? Virtually none.
They also claim that a majority of Americans don’t support a wall. That is complete nonsense, unless of course, by Americans they’re including illegals. It’s what Donald Trump campaigned on and probably the main reason he got elected.
Insultingly, they say that the crisis at the border is manufactured. Tell that to the families of Newman Police Cpl. Ronil Singh of Newman, California and Pierce Corcoran from Knoxville, Tennessee, both who were shot in late December 2018 by illegal aliens.
It’s interesting that when an American commits a crime, Democrats are quick to call for that person to be punished, and rightfully so, but when an illegal alien kills an American citizen, they don’t see the fact that illegal immigration is a problem.
Any sane person knows what Pelosi and Schumer know, that illegal immigration is a huge problem and that a wall would be a huge factor in preventing it. But that’s not what they want. Whether the realize it or not, they’ve exposed their true agenda. They want power, and the way to ensure that they get it is by keeping the border porous and difficult for ICE and Border Patrol officers to effectively do their jobs. And by keeping a steady stream of potential Democratic voters flowing into the country.
You can be sure that if illegals coming here were potential Republican voters, Democrats would be doing everything in their power to shut down the border.
