Why Democrats oppose the wall

John Feehery, The Hill

Let’s say Mr. Trump, in a press conference in October of 2020, is able to point to a huge steel fence on the outskirts of Laredo, Texas, and say that he delivered on his No. 1 campaign promise and then announce that he has a secret agreement that Mexico will pay for it. Who cares if the Mexican government denies it? The Trump base will be pumped and the government shutdown will be long-forgotten. That’s the worse-case scenario for the Democrats: A Republican president who can point to a wall to prove he keeps his promises. And that’s why Nancy Pelosi won’t give Donald Trump his wall. It’s not about morality or cost. It’s all about the politics.
