Dem Rep. Breaks From Democratic Talking Points On Border Wall

The Daily Wire
By Ryan Saavedra
January 5, 2019

Excerpt:

Sep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) admitted in a recent interview that the amount of money that President Donald Trump is requesting for a border wall is not a lot of money, and that a wall would help secure the border.

Yarmuth, chairman of the House Budget Committee, told Buck Sexton on Hill TV's "Rising" that at "one point, Democrats were willing to give $25 billion for border security, just a year ago, in exchange for a deal on DACA."

Yarmouth struggled to explain why Democrats now oppose securing the U.S. border ó a position that they have traditionally supported.

Sexton asked Yarmuth: "So why do we keep hearing members of the Democratic Congress come forward saying that it wouldn't work and it's stupid, when not only do we have the people who are actually in charge of border security saying it would work and it's not stupid, we can see that it already does work in places where there is a wall?"

"That's exactly right," Yarmuth responded.

In 2013, all 54 Senate Democrats voted to pass a bill that gave $46 billion for border security, which included building an additional 700 miles of border fencing.

*snip*

In 2006, 26 Senate Democrats voted to pass a bill that would have given $50 billion over 25 years to secure the border which also included money for a border fence.

"It allowed for about 700 miles of fencing along certain stretches. Congress put aside $1.4 billion for the fence, but the whole cost, including maintenance, was pegged at $50 billion over 25 years, according to analyses at the time," The Boston Globe reported.

Numerous prominent Democrat politicians have also called for increased border security and the construction of a border wall.

President Bill Clinton said in his 1995 State of the Union address:

We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.

President Barack Obama said in his 2013 State of the Union address:

Real reform means strong border security, and we can build on the progress my administration has already made Ė putting more boots on the Southern border than at any time in our history and reducing illegal crossings to their lowest levels in 40 years. Real reform means establishing a responsible pathway to earned citizenship Ė a path that includes passing a background check, paying taxes and a meaningful penalty, learning English, and going to the back of the line behind the folks trying to come here legally.

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at a 2015 town hall event:

I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think that you have to control your borders.

Calling our troops "Boots" has always gotten under my skin, always felt it was a way to de-humanize them and distract from the sacrifices they make. Wonder how he'd have liked being called the Boy in the White House...

Re: Dem Rep. Breaks From Democratic Talking Points On Border Wall.

Democrat Spending Bill Offers $12 Billion More for Foreign Aid, $0 for Border Wall.

The spending bills proposed by House Democrats to end the partial government shutdown offer no funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall, but provide over $12 billion more in foreign aid than the Trump administration requested, according to a statement on Thursday from the White House Office of Management and Budget.

That's a fact. Notice one thing in his self aggrandizing speech. He stated ILLEGAL crossings, because he turned Illegal crossings into refugee claims. The 60% that came across and more were given legal status based upon specious claims of asylum. That was his game.

Itís simple really. If they give Trump money for the wall, he is a slam dunk for re-election. If they donít, and get him to back down, then they have created a negative talking point against him for re-election.

The democrats donít care about America. They only care about power.

Problem is, Trump is not a push over like most republicans.

:exactly:
Trump is sounding like he will use the military and military funds to build it.
This is more for our safety than spending to send troops to the middle east.
