A Much-Needed Border Wall
I have to wonder what all the hype is in regard to the much-needed border wall and enhanced border security for the United States. So many well-advised officials say there is a National crisis. It all depends on whom I speak with that says there is no crisis.
It was just a few years ago that the Democratic party was for a border wall and increased border security. Now, over the last two to three years, the Democrats are very much against a border wall. I have to wonder…
- Why are the Democratic so much against defending their Homeland?
- Why did the Democratic Party take such a severe turn towards open borders when a few years ago they were all for a border wall?
- What is different now from three years ago and what has changed?
- What is causing such a divided government?
I think that the answers to these questions are plain and simple. President Trump won the White House in 2016, and he should never have won, he was not expected to win. This win proved to be a permanent shock to the opposition. Many including Donald J. Trump will never understand how this happened other than the American people spoke.
The opposition party will never accept President Trump a legitimate President. The Democratic party will never bend to this President even if it means keeping Americans safer with a wall at the border. They will never be in agreement with President Trump over anything he deems necessary for the United States.
These actions by the Democrats make the whole thing an ongoing and sad state of affairs. The Democratic party continues to turn a blind eye away from all the problems that open borders in the United States continue to cause.
In February 2019, a small group of Democratic lawmakers visited the United States and Mexico border. This group included House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer who traveled with newly elected congresswomen Veronica Escobar, Xochitl Torres Samm, Deb Haaland, and Representative Mary Gay Scanlon.
The essence of this trip was to find out the truth and the real reasons concerning the so-called border crisis. This trip ended with the conscious by Hoyer that no emergency or crisis warranted closing the border or building a wall between the United States and Mexico, in spite of what President Trump and his team profess.
This Democratic group admitted that there were “challenges” at the border and lawmakers needed to work together to figure out how to take the best course of action. However, the one thing America did not need was a border wall, The agenda of this group was…
- To meet with immigrant advocates
- Discern the humanitarian crisis
- Visit a migrant shelter
- Visit a port of entry
- Meet with border security
This trip ended with the group calling the border crisis a bunch of misrepresented and ill-politicized circumstances. I doubt this group risks their lives daily working on the edge of insanity.
Perhaps they need to take a real hiatus and spend a few months following border guards to find out the real truth. In the end, there was nothing accomplished worth any significance and this group felt there indeed was no need for a border wall and no crisis.
Makes No Difference what the Experts say if it Means a Win for the President
Mark Morgan was a guest on The Fox News Network April 4, 2019. He was the former border patrol chief under President Obama. Morgan stated that he knows all about the border issues and need for a border wall. He said, “I have never seen a crisis there like today. The United States needs a border wall to enhance the security for American citizens.”
Morgan went on to say, “To keep open borders and allow for illegal immigrants into American serves no useful purpose for anyone.”
Like the savvy businessman, (not a politician) President Trump is, he makes no decisions on his own. I believe he does listen to all sides before making a decision. He takes advice from those working at the border daily risking their lives to keep the enemy out. He gathers reliable information from those he trusted enough to give leadership positions.
President Trump states that his goal is to cater to the immigrant seeking, a safer place to live and raise a family, and possibly realize the American dream.
He welcomes immigrants to our homeland, but they must go through the right channels to achieve a life in America. However, the Democrats continue to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to do what they can to keep American safe. To agree with the President means that he wins and this can never happen.
I think there is something to be said about, “Good fences make good neighbors.”
