House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has fought against the concept of building a wall since Trump first suggested it. Now she seems to want to defeat its purpose entirely.
The Washington Free Beacon has reported that Pelosi actually wants to IMPROVE roads at the border to make it EASIER for migrants to enter the United States.
Pelosi weakly signified that her and fellow Democrats wanted to deploy a “technological wall” to monitor illegal crossing in the plan, rather than an actual wall.
“[The plan] we are proposing is to build the infrastructure of the ports of entry, to strengthen that, the ports of entry, spend the money, the hundreds of millions of dollars, but accessible to have the scanning technology to scan cars coming through for drugs, contraband of any kind, weapons even,” Pelosi attempted to explain.
“Repair the roads that facilitate immigration and trade in those regions,” Pelosi added. “The positive, should we say almost technological, wall that can be built is what we should be doing.”
This goes to show how far on the other side of the spectrum Democrats have become. With Pelosi refusing to see reason, President Trump has firmly planted himself to oppose any funding that does not include a physical border barrier.
He spoke of degenerating talks in a previous post to Twitter, “Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time,” Trump said. “I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!”
How long will Democrats allow the shutdown to continue before they offer this small but reasonable concession to Republicans?
