Democrats don’t want to fund Trump’s wall. They’ve fought tooth & nail against it. A wall would make it more difficult to enter the country illegally, no matter what political party holds the reigns of power in the future. A wall would be a “permanent” deterrent to illegal border crossers and criminal cartels which funnel drugs into the country.
President Trump is only asking for $5 billion. It’s only a portion of what’s needed to build the entire wall, but it’s a good start. Democrats won’t budge, though. Dems want illegal immigration. Those who enter illegally are future voters in their minds. That’s why they set up sanctuary cities, and are even allowing illegals to vote in school board races in some areas.

Dems won’t give Trump the $5 billion he wants for the wall, yet now the US is giving $10 billion to countries south of us.
The Associated Press is reporting:
“The United States pledged $5.8 billion in aid and investment Tuesday for strengthening government and economic development in Central America, and another $4.8 billion in development aid for southern Mexico.
The U.S aid aims to promote better security conditions and job opportunities as part of a regional plan to allow Central Americans and Mexicans to remain in their countries and not have to emigrate.

The plan was announced in a joint U.S.-Mexican statement released by the State Department and read aloud by Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard in the Mexican capital.
“In sum I think this is good news, very good news for Mexico,” Ebrard said.
Newly inaugurated President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador waxed poetic about the plan to provide jobs so people won’t have to emigrate.
“I have a dream that I want to see become a reality … that nobody will want to go work in the United States anymore,” Lopez Obrador said at a morning news conference before the announcement.
The combination of public and private investment for the stay-at-home effort doesn’t require congressional approval, unlike Trump’s signature project to stem illegal immigration — a border wall.
The U.S. State Department issued a simultaneous statement saying “The United States is committing $5.8 billion through public and private investment to promote institutional reforms and development in the Northern Triangle,” a term that refers to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
Lopez Obrador’s administration has said it is also interested in agricultural, forestry and tourism projects in southern Mexico, and the U.S. said it will contribute to those efforts.
The U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation “is prepared to invest and mobilize $2 billion in additional funds for projects in southern Mexico that are viable and attract private sector investment,” according to the statement. “This amount is in addition to the $2.8 billion in projects for Mexico through OPIC’s current investment pipeline.”
Ebrard said “The commitments established here signify more than doubling foreign investment in southern Mexico starting in 2019.”
Southern states like Chiapas and Oaxaca are home to many of Mexico’s poorest communities. Lopez Obrador, who took office Dec. 1, has sought to make development in that region a priority, including plans for a “Mayan train” stretching from touristy parts of the Yucatan Peninsula down to Chiapas.
It was unclear if Mexico would give anything in return. A planned announcement about Mexico’s migration policy was postponed until Wednesday.
Ebrard had previously suggested that about $25 billion in U.S. investment would be an appropriate figure for what Mexicans and Central Americans have dubbed “The Alliance for Prosperity” in the region.”
The big problem with this is that it’s temporary. It’s supposed to help people in those countries have better job opportunities so they won’t come here illegally. We’ll have to give more money once those funds are used when we could have just funded the wall. The wall is permanent & will only require periodic upkeep. Handing this money over to foreign countries is like paying ransom so people won’t come here illegally. And we’ll have to pay it over & over & over again. It’s bullcrap.
Thankfully we have heroes like triple-amputee vet Airman Brian Kolfage who has raised over $8 million for Trump’s wall in just three days. If Democrats won’t give us the money for the wall, we’ll do it ourselves. Click on the GoFundMe form below if you want to help!
