InfoWars -- Democrats and RINOs in Congress have managed to temporarily delay plans for President Trump’s border wall by blocking its initial funding, and while the mainstream media gloats, prominent Trump voters say construction must proceed.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach stressed the importance of beginning construction immediately to both signal to illegal aliens that strict immigration laws will continue to be implemented, and because of the sheer immensity of the project.
Indicating that he is not happy with the prospect of postponing the venture until the fall, Kobach told Fox and Friends, “Just by starting a project like this, you send a huge message.”
People are pointing to the fact that border apprehensions are down 61% – that’s because a message was sent by the Trump administration that, ‘Hey, we’re going to get tough on illegal immigration.'”
“We only have adequate barriers on less than 400 miles of the border – the border is 1,989 miles long, so you’re not talking about something that we can do in less than a year.”
Kobach went on to note that The Wall was one of Trump’s most important campaign promises to his supporters, and that Democrat actions to thwart the will of the people could backfire.
“I think the Democrats are making a politically unwise calculation,” he said. “They’re in sort of a ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ mode – they want to get a scalp off the Trump administration, they want some victory.”
“They’re not realizing their voters back home are watching them on this, and they’re not going to agree with them.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has introduced the ‘El Chapo Act,’ which proposes that funding for The Wall be drawn from the estimated $14 billion fortune that could be seized from Mexican drug kingpin, Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, by the U.S. government if Guzman is convicted.
These drug cartels are the ones that are crossing the border, they’re smuggling narcotics, they’re engaged in human trafficking, they’re engaged in murder and extortion,” Cruz said. “There is a sense of justice… to say that the people who are violating the border like crazy – we should use their ill-gotten gains to finally build the wall.”
Cruz assessed that Senate Democrats are being led by Chuck Schumer’s “left-wing radical base” to oppose any actions or measures taken by the Trump administration without basis or reasoning – even if it means a dreaded ‘government shutdown.’
“I think Chuck Schumer and the Democrats want a shutdown – I think they’re trying to provoke a fight.”
Paul Nehlen, an Ohio businessman and former challenger to Paul Ryan for his congressional seat, has accused Ryan of sabotaging President Trump’s efforts to strengthen border security.
“You cannot effectively deport an illegal alien without a means to keep them out of this country,” Nehlen wrote on social media. “Take a moment and hear the names and brief stories of some Americans murdered at the hands of illegals, many of whom were previously deported. Paul Ryan is undermining President Trump and American safety and security.”
President Trump has assured his supporters that his position on building The Wall has not changed, and to not believe discouraging reports from the fake media to the contrary.
Blog Author's Comments: I do not believe President Trump has 'rolled over' on the wall; this was probably his most prominent campaign issue which had many previously non-voters and election 'fence sitters' take notice. The 'Wall' has got to be built, and I believe that it will be. But, this is not a project that can be accomplished within a year or less, but I do think that a GOP plan for the funding of this project should be one of the many priorities that is dealt with by both the House and Senate. The wall will stop many illegals from wandering into our country at will, and will make a powerful statement that the United States and the Trump administration are serious about border security.
As I have said, this was probably Trump's most important promise to the American citizens and voters. And many of the people who supposedly voted for Trump already have their panties in a twist because this project has not yet been funded or started. President Trump has been in office less than 100 days. Just remember how many, and who Trump had to fight to win the Presidency. The 'never trump" wing of the GOP, the Democrats, the liberal mainstream media which is probably over 90% of all the media.
These are the same people trying to stop him from being successful with what he campaigned on and our country needs. He requires the help of the people in the party, and right now with everything that has to be done, it is an uphill battle for sure. Trump cannot accomplish everything that has to be done on his own and he has said in a recent interview that he is 'disappointed' with many Congressional Republicans. For the Trump doubters, think a little bit and have some patience. This is no time to panic, I will tell you when it is time to panic. There is little doubt in my mind, and I am not a patient person, that much of what he campaigned on will eventually come to fruition.
