I understand President Trump said Mexico was going to pay for the border wall but I also know Congress allotted money for it and they are pulling it back.
Many people will blame Trump on the fact he said Mexico will pay for the wall but that doesn’t let Congress off the hook for not including that money in the budget. What else are you spending it on?
Why can’t you protect America first and then charge Mexico on trade to get the money back?
Congress spends money on all types of crazy crap day after day so they can fund this wall. The problem is they don’t want to. They don’t want to stop Planned Parenthood or secure the border. They are filled with globalists and we need to drain this swamp quick!
House Speaker Paul Ryan, in a statement to The Hill, seemed to concede that border wall funding would not be included in the GOP budget, saying the funds would come at a later date.
Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) and Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) are the two Republican lawmakers teaming with Democrats to stop the funding of the border wall, despite both representing districts that share a border with Mexico.
“We recognize the need for robust border security and infrastructure to ensure public safety and increase cross border commerce,” Hurd and McSally wrote to the Trump administration in a letter, according to The Hill. “We also have an obligation to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars.”
Establishment Republicans in the Senate, like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), are also teaming with Democrats to stop the border wall, with McCain worrying more about the sentiment that Mexicans have towards America.
“There is a lot of anti-American sentiment in Mexico,” McCain said during a Senate hearing with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly. “If the election were tomorrow in Mexico, you’d probably have a left-wing, anti-American president in Mexico. That can’t be good for America.”
