Where Are The House GOP Leaders On The Border Wall?

Democrats will vote today on a resolution disapproving Trump’s Declaration of a National Emergency at the southern border, but so far House Republican “leaders” have mounted no serious or even visible counterattack to the sustained battering Trump has received at the hands of Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the #NeverTrump foreign policy establishment.

Democrats Move To Disapprove Trump Wall Emergency

House Democrats plan to file a resolution today seeking to block President Trump's emergency declaration aimed at securing funds for building a border wall.  A vote by the full House is expected in mid-March.

President Trump And Texas Governor Greg Abbott Can Use The Constitution To Build The Wall

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that the United States shall protect each state against invasion and domestic violence. With 369,000 illegal aliens arrested along the Texas – Mexico border last year and over 189,000 crimnal aliens arrested in Texas during the past decade Gov. Abbott has a textbook case for a request for assistance to repell the invaison and violence.

A Fake Border Security Bill

The worst parts of this bill are those elements that undermine the case for the declaration of an emergency at the border. That is the only way the Wall is going to get built, because it is clear that President Trump is not going to get any help from Capitol Hill’s Republican “leadership” and if the Wall is going to be built it will be done only through executive action.

Trump Weighing All Options For Wall Funding

It is clear that Capitol Hill’s establishment  Republicans have once again let down President Trump and the GOP’s conservative – populist base. The President is now weighing "alternative options" for building a border wall. It would be great if the Capitol Hill GOP would fight for the Wall, but if they won't President Trump should build it without them.

Congress Must #ReadTheDeal Before Voting

Capitol Hill GOP Caves On Border Wall Deal

President Trump may be on to the Republicans’ lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he panned the deal yesterday during a cabinet meeting and said, “I’m adding things to it.” It is clear to us where the problem lies in getting the Wall funded and built – with Capitol Hill Republicans where it has always been.

Trump Tweets On The Wall, Is Congress Listening?

President Trump may be on to the Conference Committee Republicans lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he tweeted on Wednesday, “If the committee of Republicans and Democrats now meeting on Border Security is not discussing or contemplating a Wall or Physical Barrier, they are Wasting their time!”

New Ear To The Ground Poll: Wall Is Make Or Break For Trump And GOP

Trump voters gave him a 6.71 out of 7 today – but would score him 3.82 if he fails to secure border security funds, a drop of 43 percent. While his voters are still with him today, it appears the President better build the wall or his support will significantly suffer.

Don’t Bet On Centrist Democrats Bringing Pelosi Around On The Wall

Centrist House Democrats, who say they are sick of political posturing, want Speaker Pelosi to counter Trump’s sure-to-die-in-the-Senate immigration proposal with her own compromise. But don't bet on them succeeding because all the political weight in the Democratic Party now lies with the Far Left.

UniParty Pulling Bait And Switch On Trump Wall Funding

The UniParty on Capitol Hill is doing an elaborate little Minuet to convince you that there’s just no support for the Wall. Here’s the first Partita of the Minuet according to The Hill: The Senate leadership on Tuesday struck an agreement to vote on dueling proposals to reopen the federal government, not secure the southern border.

Trump Immigration Proposal Boxes In Democrats

Should Democrats kill the Trump proposal – as we believe they will – the President should feel empowered to begin to explore executive action to address the national security crisis at our southern border – including using the military to construct an effective border wall.

In border fight, Democrats want 'technological wall' that won't keep anybody out

Byron York, Washington Examiner

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California says a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border would be "immoral." Instead, she favors something she calls a "technological wall." The problem is, a smart wall would not actually wall off intrusions. Indeed, the main feature of a smart wall — in past debates, it was often referred to as a virtual fence — is that it will not stop anyone from crossing the border into the United States. It can detect illegal crossers and alert authorities to their presence. But it does nothing to keep them from entering the country.

Mr. President, No Surrender On The Wall

Though we don’t want to see anyone out of work or missing a paycheck, why should anyone care more that a hundred or a thousand or ten thousand government employees are not getting paid - than for the survival of their country?

What V.P. Mike Pence Asked Conservatives To Do

Yesterday, CHQ Richard A. Viguerie and his team participated in a conference call with Vice President Pence about the Wall. It was a good call, but we think the Vice President underestimated what the President’s grassroots conservative-populist supporters would be willing to do to help get the Wall built and we have some additional action items to suggest.

The Wall And The Shameful Silence Of GOP Leaders

Why shouldn’t the Democrats think they can win the fight over the Wall? For the past two years the GOP’s congressional leaders were shamefully silent whenever the subject of the Wall came up and stalled around avoiding any showdown with the Democrats that when won would have funded the Wall.
