A central part of Donald Trump’s campaign message was that he was going to build a wall on the southern border. Not only do illegals pour across the border, turning our border patrol agents into babysitters and short order cooks, America should also be concerned about terrorism threats since ISIS, the brutal Muslim terrorist organization that Obama referred to as the JV team as they acquired more power, has let it be known that they would take advantage of the porous border to infiltrate America and attack us on our own land.
True to their identity politics manipulative agenda, Democrats have made protecting America’s border an issue of divisiveness accusing anyone who supports it of racism, xenophobia and hating anyone who “doesn’t look like them.” Of course, they have vowed to actively work to obstruct all of President-elect Trump’s agenda with some, like California Marxist Maxine Waters, saying she refuses to even meet with Trump to determine if they have any common ground. Given the obstructionist stance of the Democrats before Trump has even been inaugurated, they would no doubt attempt to stop a wall from the southern border from being built. But, according to sources, with Trump’s new plan to build the wall, there might be nothing Democrats can do to stop it.
So what exactly is Trump’s plan that would be impossible for Democrats to stop? He would rely on existing legislation that already authorizes the use of fencing and other technology at the southern border.
Congressional Republicans and Donald Trump’s transition team are exploring whether they can make good on Trump’s promise of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border without passing new legislation, officials said Thursday.
Under the evolving plan, the Trump administration would rely on existing legislation authorizing fencing and other technology along the southern border. Congress would be asked to ensure that enough money is appropriated to take additional new steps — but would not pass a stand-alone bill authorizing a big new wall.
The potential approach was confirmed by two congressional officials and a senior transition official with knowledge of the discussions; all spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. Details were scarce and the officials emphasized that no final decisions had been made.
With no new legislation required and Congress only having to make sure the money is appropriated, funding should be an easy enough feat in the Republican-controlled Congress if the GOP stands unified.
If Democrats whine and complain, which they will undoubtedly do since their allegiance seems to be to all groups but Americans, Donald Trump and the GOP should come back with three words that we heard from Barack Obama and the Democrats numerous times for the past eight years. Elections have consequences.
Democrats will no doubt accuse Trump of going around Congress, although they cheered Obama doing so for the past eight years. If they do so, such accusations would be based on a lie since the steps which may be taken are already authorized under current law.
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) addressed what is allowed under the current law. He said, “There’s a lot of things that can be done within current law. You cannot minimize the potential impact of the administration doing what they can do under the law.”
Will Trump follow through with this supposed plan? If he truly believes what he said during his campaign, that a country without a border is not a country, then he will.
