The President Issued an Ultimatum of 10 days for the Wall Funding, else things will get Nuclear and Emergency is on the Way.

President Trump renewed his calls for a wall along the southern border during his State of the Union address Tuesday night, while declaring that tolerance for illegal immigration is “not compassionate,” but “cruel.”

YES or NO

“Simply put, walls work and walls save lives,” Trump said Tuesday. “So let’s work together, compromise and reach a deal that will truly make America safe.”

Trump outlined his administration’s “common-sense proposal” to end the “crisis” on the southern border, which has been sent to Congress, and which he said includes “humanitarian assistance, more law enforcement, drug detection,” a way to close “loopholes that enable child smuggling,” and “plans for a new physical barrier or wall.”

“This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier –not just a simple concrete wall,” he explained. “It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down.”

The president’s remarks come after a 35-day partial government shutdown, the longest in U.S. history, which saw an intense stalemate between the White House and congressional Democrats over border security. Trump requested $5.7 billion in funding for border security and construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Democrats responded with a fraction of that funding for the Department of Homeland Security, which has jurisdiction over the border, and vowed to block any spending package that funds construction of the wall.

  1. The proposed tall, steel, see through posts are undoubtedly the best design. It is hard to get traction and grip on smooth metal.

    I do not see why Trump doesn’t declare this a national emergency and simply build a wall COMPLETELY across the Mexican border. Funding? It is a national emergency, funding can come from many projects already in place. The Army Corp of Engineers can build it.

    Trump knows that refusal by the Left Liberal crowd is causing the Democrats to lose face, credibility and support. Maybe Trump is stretching this out, milking it for all it is worth. There are a multitude of Dems and Leftists that fully supported a wall a few years back and now they have turned tail, just to subvert ANYTHING Trump. I hope Trump gets them running………….runnnnnnnn boy,,,,run!

    • “just to subvert ANYTHING Trump” Mat I remind you that this type of Obstruction started on Feb 9 2009. That was when Senate Minority leader McConnell went PUBLIC and said “the republican party was going to do everything and NOTHING to make Obama a one term president. President Trump should have taken a que from the democrats. In 2010 when they controlled Both Chambers they pushed thru Obamacare. President Trump should have done the same thing with his wall. When for the last2 years the Republicans controlled all three houses in DC. He didn’t need ANY democrat votes as we seen with his tax cuts and spending bills. That was ehn he should have pushed thru his wall funding. BUT for some reason the GOP thought that tax cuts for the top mainly and INCREASED spending with the Military Industrial Complex was more of a National Emergency. that’s why him using National Emergency as an excuse doesn’t fly. While I agree we need MORE border security we need to change the immigration policy that allows so many to claim asylum then disappear. Solving the illegal problem will take MORE then just a wall!!!

  2. If we wish to remain a democratic republic, the barrier is mandatory – although stopping more millions of illegals is only the tip of the iceberg of thing which need correcting. One of the first is mass deportation of illegals – to INCLUDE Muslims.

    • Yes lets start with the 4-5 MILLION here that have over stayed their Visas! We have their names and photos. Along with any family members that they may have included on their Visa application. NO MATTER what religion of country their from. Considering there are still 13 law suits holding up the 2006 Bush Border Security Act. Thus making building a wall the length of the border a Generational plan. Not something that can be done in a mater of a couple of years. The other major item is to start putting those that HIRE Illegals in JAIL for One Year MANDITORY! Take away the jobs less will come here. They ALL don’t come for the freebies. The next problem is $5.7 Billion won’t be nearly enough! That puts MORE & MORE debt onto our unborn children. Considering that our deficit is again up to $1 Trillion a year. How much debt can this country handle?

  3. How can the democrats sleep at night knowing the wall is needed for the protection of our citizens and country? How can the democrats sacrifice our country for political reasons? They seem to be able to shut of conscience of what they are doing.

    • Well I am an Independent and I see the need for MORE border security. A wal is NOT the end all answer to our problem. As we have seen during the 30+ years of the war on drugs. The criminals will go over, under and around any barrier we put in place. So as an Independent I see the need for a COMPLETE immigration overhaul. Starting with the CRAZY Asylum laws. We either need to tighten the restrictions for seek asylum. Our we need to fund our court systems to handle those claiming asylum. Also the Governments own numbers prove that majority of the drugs come in threw Entry Ports not in back packs across the desert. Be Honest seeing the HUGE bust last week of the Fentanyl. Drug lords are NOT going to trust a bunch of illegals walking across the desert with $3.5 Million in drugs! A wall will work only just so much. It is NOT a one shot solution to the problem.

  4. Build the damn wall and ignore the antagonistic Democrats who are living in a dream world, thinking that they will beat Trump in 2020 and they will build the wall and be glorified for doing so, not Trump!!! It’s politics and we the American people have to suffer the consequences.

    • If President Trump does that by claiming a National Emergency to side step the demcrats controlling the check book. It will set a standard for all presidents in the future. Next time a Democrat is in the Oval office and the Republicans control the house or all of congress. A democrat president can just declare a National Emergency and side step the majority in Congress. Is that what you want for future Democrat presidents?
