Congress failed to build the wall, now Trump needs to do it without them
Washington Examiner ^ | Jan 25 2019 | Ryan Girdusky

President Trump has tried to work with Democrats in Congress to solve the partial government shutdown and build a border wall, but they are not willing to budge. Now that Trump made a more-than-generous compromise proposal and Democrats still didn't work with him, it's time to use executive action to get the wall built himself.

This is bullsh!t propaganda.

There is no wall funding in place because REPUBLICANS in Congress don't want it.

No one has fought harder against President Trump than the traitorous bastards who call themselves Republican.

All Bushes, Mittens, Romney, Ryan, Cruz and the #neverTrump FReaks here...

No, hold the Congress feet to the fire.

Congress promised border security in 1986.

They passed the Secure Fence Act in 2006.

Make them fund it.

“There is no wall funding in place because REPUBLICANS in Congress don’t want it.”

Exactly.

And that’s the 800 pound elephant in the room..

Graham, McSally, Murkowsky, Hoeven, Rubio, Tillis, Burr, Lankford, Gardner, Cornyn, Hyde-Smith, Collins, Sasse, Kennedy, Shelby, Ernst, Blunt, McConnell, Wicker, Portman, Isakson, Johnson, Toomey, Rounds, Thune, Gaines, Barasso and Enzi are all Bush League Republicans.

They have spent their careers blocking us from enforcing the laws and borders.

Their only answer is always amnesty.

I agree, but that makes it even more necessary for Trump to build it on his own. Congress will never come round.

“No, hold the Congress feet to the fire.”

Can’t be done. They hold all the power and are in lockstep...the government establishment. They are holding our feet to the fire and are about to feed us whole into it. There is no way to change them on this, nothing you can give them, except possibly the bayonet, to alter their course.

It sure appears that the President won't really have another option.

That is a shame because doing so will drag on forever in the courts. Many supporters will abandon him in 2020 and the coupe de ta by the left and the media will succeed.

The GOP will become the permanent "loyal feckless opposition" party and all the gains we enjoyed in restoring our Republic will be nullified and stark shifts towards "The People's Republic of Amerika" will increase in velocity.

They’re hopeless, they answer to open borders donors. If we’re going to get a wall, Trump must act on his own, as commander in chief. He was fine with bombing Syria on his own, in the name of national security. Why won’t he act on his own to defend our national security at our own border?

He has every power available to him to fund the wall using national emergency powers.

Ernst does. It belong on this list. She is in favor of the wall.

True. And if the wall is never built, it will because Trump decided not to act on his own, as commander in chief - because that’s the only way we can get a wall

I agree as well, and am hoping he will ignore the Fraud’s pwned judges who are itching to read their scripts to exert their “authority” over the President.

Ann Coulter was right this time. Build the wall. Forget the feckless bought and paid for congress. Do it for the people. All Americans.

Agreed.

Trump had congress and there was no wall funding then. There’s not going to be any funding now.

The only way he might get it done, and that is a huge long shot, is declare an emergency.

Why must he declare a national emergency? Just take action as part of the congresssionally authorized war on terror? If we’re not going to secure our border, the “war on terror” is a phony war

She is not in favor of enforcement which would cause the farmworkers to leave.
