As the second government shutdown this year draw near, there is no sign that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will agree to passing any measure that provides funding of a border wall.
Her stubbornness and unwillingness to negotiate with Trump is what led to the first shutdown, the longest in American history and one that left hundreds of thousands of federal workers without a paycheck for 5 weeks.
In her actions, Pelosi proved that she doesn’t care about protecting America or the American people and that she really didn’t care about the federal workers.
She believes she won a victory in the way Trump ended the first shutdown, so few options are left for Trump to get the wall built.
A recent poll indicated that 76% of Republicans favor Trump declaing a national emergency in order to build the wall.
Breitbart – Poll: Three-Quarters of Republicans Back Trump Using National Emergency to Build the Wall – Three-quarters of Republicans support President Donald J. Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall along America’s southern border, according to a poll released on Wednesday.
Seventy-six percent of Republicans support President Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall along the southern border, according to a Morning Consult/Politico survey released on Wednesday.
The poll found that 52 percent of Republicans “strongly support” Trump declaring a national emergency and 24 percent of Republicans somewhat support the president using emergency powers to build a wall.
In contrast, 71 percent of Democrats strongly oppose Trump using building the wall through a national emergency…
The ONLY reason Democrats oppose building a border wall has NOTHING to do with any humanitarian reasons, but has everything to do with votes.
Why else did Democrat-controlled Oregon and California pass a law that automatically registers everyone to vote, who obtains or renews a valid state driver’s license?
California has over 3 million illegals already in the state.
Democrat Beto O’Rourke of Texas is pushing to allow all non-citizens to vote.
This is why Democrats oppose the wall as it’s the only way they can be assured of winning control of America.
