For months, we have heard Democrats rail against building a border security wall between the United States and Mexico – a wall that Democrats spoke, and voted in favor of just years ago.
And, for months, we have waited to find out what Democrats’ alternative plan for border security is – not just generalities which sound great but provide no actual course of action, but specifics.
Well, now we have them.
Excerpted from an article just published by the Associated Press:
Democrats are offering further details of their border security plan. They unveiled a measure Thursday that would not provide money for President Donald Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall and denying his request for additional border agents.
The Democratic measure, totaling almost $22 billion for U.S. Customs, the border patrol, and immigration agents, would significantly increase spending for scanners at ports of entry, humanitarian aid for apprehended migrants, and new aircraft to police the U.S.-Mexico border.
It would also freeze the number of border patrol agents and block any wall construction in wildlife refuges along the border. I would provide for hiring 1,000 additional customs agents.
There you go. The great Democrat plan that would stop illegal immigration in its tracks.
No additional border agents.
But loads and loads of additional resources at legal ports of entry – i. e. where most illegals trying to get into the country would avoid like the plague.
And, of course, loads and loads of additional “humanitarian aid” money to pay for the illegals it won’t stop from crossing the border.
That’s the Democrat plan, folks. That’s what President Trump is supposed to sign off on in a big ceremony and assure us will prevent illegals from coming into the country.
Basically, what Democrats are doing is telling you that you are either a bunch of idiots who can’t figure out that this is little more than an exercise in pissing away billions of dollars while illegals continue to flood our country…
… or that you are an advocate for illegals flooding in, and therefore will support this joke of a proposal because it won’t stop them.
Now, what is President Trump going to do about it? And how are mainstream media going to portray this proposal and his reaction?
I have a feeling we both know the answer.
