Democrats Starting to Cave on the Wall

Top Democrats are starting to cave on the concept of a wall, even though they still refuse to call it that to prevent Trump from winning “political points”. Fox News reports:

Speaking exclusively to “Fox News Sunday,” a top Democrat on the bipartisan congressional committee negotiating a border security compromise indicated that his party would support “some sort of enhanced barrier” — but not a “wall” like the one President Trump has demanded.

The government is currently funded through Feb. 15, and the committee is racing to reach an agreement to avert the possibility of another partial federal government shutdown over funding for a border wall.

Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar insisted that local officials, instead of the head of the Border Patrol and other federal officers who have called for a wall, should make the final determination on what construction is necessary.

“First of all, we are not going to have a wall,” Cuellar told host Chris Wallace, referring to walls as a “14th-century” solution. “Now, we can look at some sort of enhanced, uh, barrier — that’s certainly something we can look at. But I have to say living on the border, you have to let the local Border Patrol chief have the say-so, and let the local communities be involved so they can come up with, uh, maybe some sort of enhanced barrier — but again, Washington cannot dictate what sort of barrier and where to put it at.”

If Republicans are willing to compromise on what this is called, conservatives will be able to get border security like never before.

I don’t care what it’s called, as long as it keeps the cockroaches out of our country. Make sure it is pointed on top so these cockroaches can’t sit up there and give us/US the finger.
It is great that Mexico is hosting this trash, after all of the years of sending us their garbage. Let them stay there and don’t pay Mexico one red cent for these animals.

Yes, all Democrats are not only stupid, but like Kamala Harris, theY all have something in their background that would stop any Republican from holding office. How can a woman have any self respect when she used sex with that creep (Willie Brown) to further her career? Then you have “Spartacus” Cory Booker who released classified material during the Kavanaugh hearings, and gets away with it. The Establishment Ethics Committee of the Senate dare not do anything to him because he told them so. What a country!

IMO, Demonazis are being paid off by drug cartels and human smuggling rings to keep the border open so that they can freely bring in all the drugs that are killing out people and all the child sex slaves that are brought in. No doubt some RINOs are in on the action as well. To me, that is the most probable cause for the Demonazis to oppose border security.

If it can ever be proven that they have taken money from the cartels, they belong in prison. I still think Obama and Hillary belong there for selling the guns to the terrorists in Benghazi, them may as well have pulled the trigger. I an sick of these EVIL people that only care about themselves. We need the Wall and we need it now!

WhiteFalcon, I believe you have nailed it. Proving it would be very difficult because of the amount of money involved. Pelosi and Schumer definitely have changed their thinking on a wall since they had control of the House during the Obama years. The Cartels are know for bribing officials (like they did the last president of Mexico) to allow their drug running and human smuggling operations to run freely without any interference.

Dont let the democrats fool you they have no intention of funding anything. They never have and never will. They lied to President Regan saying give us amnesty and we will have border security. Regan and the Republicans gave 5 million amnesty and guess what they passed a sham law for border security but didn’t FUND it…Hmmmm Fool us once shame on them fool us twice shame on us. Their will be no shame on us this time…..Everybody on board with this?

“Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar insisted that local officials, instead of the head of the Border Patrol and other federal officers who have called for a wall, should make the final determination on what construction is necessary.”
In other words, those who DON’T want the protection may have the final say. I can see it now, a 3 foot tall chicken-wire fence, easy to step over and giving ZERO protection. The “Dims” are at it again.
