Trump Calls Out Dems Over Border Security, Nancy And Chuck Look Like Puppets In Rebuttal

It’s an Old West showdown, folks!

Trump, in first-ever prime time Oval Office address, laments ‘crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul’ at border

President Trump used his first-ever prime time address from the Oval Office on Tuesday night to make his case for funding a southern border wall — as well as to emphasize the human cost of what he called the “growing humanitarian and security crisis” of surging illegal immigration.

The speech, which was followed moments later by a rebuttal from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, drew seemingly deep lines in the sand as Republicans and Democrats plan to meet Wednesday to continue negotiations to end the ongoing partial federal government shutdown over border wall funding, now in its third week. Trump has said the shutdown could last for “years” if no deal is reached. (snip)

“Every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone – 90 percent of which floods across from our southern border,” Trump, who signed a bipartisan opioid bill into law late last year, remarked at the beginning of his address.

He continued: “This is a humanitarian crisis – a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul. Last month, 20,000 migrant children were illegally brought into the United States – a dramatic increase. These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico. Women and children are the biggest victims by far of our broken system.”

He also mentioned all the people killed by illegals, and specifically named several.

Apparently responding to Pelosi’s widely reported comment that a wall would be immoral, Trump remarked: “Some have suggested a barrier is immoral.  Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.”

Chuck and Nancy got their rebuttal

“The fact is: On the very first day of this Congress, House Democrats passed Senate Republican legislation to re-open government and fund smart, effective border security solutions,” Pelosi said, referring to bills that did not include funding for Trump’s border wall.

They forgot to mention that they expanded money for all sorts of things Democrat, as well as for overseas spending, including for abortions in 3rd world countries. It was not just the Senate legislation. And by security they mean methods which will allow us to watch the illegals wander in but not be able to stop them.

Schumer added afterward: “There is an obvious solution: separate the shutdown from the arguments over border security.  There is bipartisan legislation – supported by Democrats and Republicans – to re-open government while allowing debate over border security to continue.

And that is the trap, as once Trump signs any legislation the House Democrats will refuse to pick up discussion of serious border security again. They will move on, just like they have done many times in the past.

“We can re-open the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy,” Schumer said. “We can secure our border without an expensive, ineffective wall. And, we can welcome legal immigrants and refugees without compromising safety and security. The symbol of America should be the Statue of Liberty, not a thirty-foot wall.”

We aren’t worried about legal immigrants, and refugees should be applying for asylum at embassies, not sneaking across the border.

But the biggest one is to not fall for their yammering about continuing discussions later. Because they won’t. During the Obama shutdown he promised to discuss things with Republicans later. He then refused to after legislation to re-open the tiny portion of the government that was shut was passed and signed.

Meanwhile, Chuck and Nancy were roasted

    Time to send that stupid statue back. The words on the statue were the results of a poetry contest, not a statement of national policy, passed in congress after a full debate by the people of the USA. Further, the people of the USA 100 years ago are not the same people we have today. The words for today should read, “we have enough wretched masses yearning to breath free for now. Go somewhere else”.

    Democrats HATE AMERICA and AMERICANS. They LOVE illegal immigrants and MS13 gang members.

    they have shut down the government. Paychecks are NOT going out to working class families whom they have abandoned.

    The democrats loathe Americans. They HOPE YOU DIE! They cheer when a cop dies. They cheer when a woman is raped by an illegal.

    They hate Trump. Defacto they hate America. PERIOD.
