BOOM: GOP Lawmakers Reintroduce The Wall Act To Fund The ENTIRE Border Wall
January 9, 2019 Martin
 

Five GOP lawmakers reintroduced the WALL Act on Tuesday, which would fund the entire wall along the southern border between the United States and Mexico.

In a joint statement, the five Senators — Jim Inhofe, R-OK, Mike Rounds, R-S.D., John Kennedy, R-LA, Ted Cruz R-TX, and Bill Cassidy, R-LA, — argued that now is the perfect time to get the wall funded.

The the WALL Act would provide $25 billion in funding for President Donald Trump’s wall, which experts have argued would fund the entire project.

Because those five are the leaders and the conservative thinkers in the Senate.  Others may follow.

Good luck.  Nancy's already said -$0-...what it's going to take is the next caravan mob knocking on our door and the media showing film footage several times a day.  This needs to somehow dominate the media so that the American people get the full picture of what's happening.

This needs to become a 'National' or American issue rather than a GOP or DEM issue.

Because they are the five that aren't standing there with their tails between their legs.

@austingirl

Speaking of 5 as in $5 billion he wants: He wanted some money to get it started, then, once started, the rest would come to get it finished.  He is talking right now, saying the people not getting paid are for this.  The past few days he said these people not getting paid are Democrats; that would mean he is punishing them for being Democrats, but says today those not getting checks are for this. As usual, he contradicts himself every day.

@Victoria33 are you opposed to a wall, or a physical barrier?

@libertybele

No, not against a wall (whatever it is called) where it is necessary.  Trump also knows there are areas where illegals can't cross due to natural topography - mountains, etc.  The Texas boundary is so long, the natural lay of the land changes.  I wound depend on our border guards to help me decide where a wall is necessary as they live with this every day.

Ok, perhaps I'm misunderstanding you, but it seems that you are against this President and his attempts to get funding for the wall.  I completely understand you don't like his character much, nor do I, but at this point, he either negotiates and gets the money or he needs to declare a national emergency.  I don't see much else he can do.

@austingirl

I know that now.  Once a bill is introduced by one or more senators, others will want their names on it, too, so this bill will likely gather more signing onto it.

Trump will definitely listen to experts regarding the placement of the wall.  And he will certainly listen to the border patrol.

Not concerned about the logistics at all.  Only thing needed is $$.

I will hazard a guess that their response would be, "it's necessary the entire length of the border".

Oh, they are.  Things are horrible on the border.  And liberals I know are saying that illegal immigration is down.  I wonder where they are getting their disinformation from?  I was watching this lady on FOX tonight her name is Trish Regan she was exposing the cost of illegal immigration.  Anyway there was a guy on her show that said illegal immigration broke a record in December.  Its never been that high.  I like her.  Where did she come from?

Profound statement.  What if we believed in our Constitution and Bill of Rights?  To believe that every man and woman is created equal?  That the Almighty God created!  That Americans should be judged by their character not their skin color.  Why do we still judge people by the color of their skin?  Why do we have Affirmative Action?  Why do employers discriminate by race?

I dunno.....maybe from Trump?


Now, it just came out that they’re 73 percent down. ... That’s a tremendous achievement. ... Look at this, in 100 days, that down to the lowest in 17 years and it’s going lower. Now, people aren’t coming because they know they’re not going to get through, and there isn’t crime. You know the migration up to the border is horrible for women, you know that? (Unintelligible.) Now, much of that’s stopped because they can’t get through.

He was all set to take the credit in April 2017 for the drop, but not the blame for the increase since then? Makes sense.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

I have no doubt that the numbers came down immediately following his election.  But just like a child who has figured out the parents are bluffing the illegal immigrants figured it out also.  I do think that he bears some responsibility for the increase.  Because he should have immediately taken a stand on his promise to the American people.

But we are here now.  I am supporting his shutdown.  I am supporting him as long as he doesn't cave on this.

Well, that and the fact that the numbers were down for a while.   :whistle:

I stopped believing in the wall fairy when he said Mexico would pay for it.  This shutdown is a side spectacle to distract from the impending impeachment of the President who cried "wall."  I'm so moist.

What's the matter @The Ghost ?  Is this forum not big enough for your fantasy of a huge national monument to Trump's racism, and my fantasy of a human President?

Where else I'm I going to find the cutting edge presidential press release regurgitation of https://ilovemyfreedom.org and www.freedomboner.gun if I don't stop in here?

So, you just post here to make fun of those you feel to be less perceptive than you?

Oh, wait, you've always done that.  Trump is just another excuse for you to be obnoxious.
