President Offers Compromise on Border Wall; Democrats Say "No"

President Offers Compromise on Border Wall; Democrats Say "No"
13 Comments

During a statement on Saturday, President Trump proposed funding for humanitarian assistance and drug detection technology, increases in Border Patrol agents and immigration judges,

changes to the asylum application process for minors, promotion of family reunification, $5.7 billion in border wall funding, and protections for DACA recipients and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders.

Trump said, “Our plan includes the following: $800 million in urgent humanitarian assistance, $805 million for drug detection technology to help secure our ports of entry, an additional 2,750 border agents and law enforcement professionals, 75 new immigration judge teams…a new system to allow Central American minors to apply for asylum in their home countries and reform to promote family reunification for unaccompanied children, thousands of whom wind up on our border doorstep. To physically secure our border, the plan includes $5.7 billion for a strategic deployment of physical barriers, or a wall. This is not a 2,000-mile concrete structure from sea to sea. These are steel barriers in high priority locations.”

 

 

He added that the plan includes “3 years of legislative relief” for DACA recipients, which will “give them access to work permits, Social Security numbers, and protection from deportation,” and 3 years of TPS extension.

Democrat Nancy Pelosi said "no."

    Notice a pattern here?
    1. Pelosi tells she is just as powerful as is Trump.
    2. Pelosi cancels Trump's address next week (or tries).
    3. Trump stops Pelosi's trip.
    4. Memo sent from President's acting Office Manager saying all Legislator's are forbidden to travel at government expense while the government is shutdown unless permission is given by the President.
    5. President Trump delays his announcement by 1 hour from 3:00 to 4:00.
    6. Trump's Oval Office LEGAL citizenship swearing ceremony
    7. Pelosi and Schumer release the Democratic response to President's Trump's White House address on Saturday afternoon about 3:30 (a per-rebuttal to Trumps announcement).
    8. Trump gives his White House address on Saturday afternoon at 4:00 pm (Checkmate).

    This whole thing is getting to be nothing but "theater". Nothing of any significance has been accomplished. Lot of talk and gossip, but no action. What if Trump is nothing more than a plant by the corrupted gooferment, deep state, whatever you want to call it? With regard to the wall talk, why has nothing been done when, in theory, the process could have started 2 years ago? Listen up. ROTHSCHILD has Trump by the short hairs. They run things, not Trump. Maybe Trump has good intentions, but I simply do not know for sure. He said he was going to get into the 911 fiasco and release the documents concerning the Kennedy assassination. Yeah, sure. Nothing has been done. We have all these alleged indictments. Yeah, so what. Nothing of any significance done there, either. Just a few crumbs to placate the masses? Distractions, nothing more.

    Monday, January 21 is day 30 of the shutdown. Will they start having a real reduction in force, or extend another 30 days? If history is any indication of what happens next, it will likely be just talk and more delaying tactics.

    Certain things are in place to declare a "real national emergency" using the executive orders which "might" indicate martial law and military tribunal courts. Instead of complaining about it, JUST DO IT. DOING NOTHING ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING!

    All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing - Edmund Burke.

    There you have it...nothing is being done and we have the results of evil being triumphant as of right now.

    What about this? You're paying for this my fellow Americans.
    IRS Loophole Millions Illegal Aliens Getting Bigger Tax Refund Than You Are
    https://dcdirtylaundry.com/thanks-to-irs-loophole-millions-of-illegal-aliens-are-getting-a-bigger-tax-refund-than-you-are/

    What about all the "TRILLIONS" stolen and unaccounted for by the criminals in Washington? What's been done about that? NOTHING and it will continue. Is not the gooferment guilty of the RICO Act? Sure are, but no one has the guts to pursue it. Wimps.

    The wall "things" are quite minor compared to what is REALLY going on. Certainly has everyone occupied by it. Success on the part of the criminals to keep the people distracted from the reality of what is going on beneath the surface is working well. They are winning as of this moment, like it or not.

    All I can say is that if people continue to yak about this, nothing will happen. NOTHING! If the masses would simply STOP GOING TO WORK, things will happen. In France, we have "Yellow Jackets", in the united States, we have "Yellow Bellies". Sorry if I offended, but truth is truth.

    There is absolutely no need to compromise with criminals. President Trump, if you want to "really" fix things, get on the horn and tell people to STOP GOING TO WORK! How hard is that? Don't forget that by continuing to go to work, the people, by proxy, are supporting this criminal organization call Dump City (D.C.). Pathetic...

    I am astounded by the failure of Americans to catch the fact that the "Compassionate Humane Liberal Left" enticed those poor, ignorant "caravan" people away from their homes and paid to transport them to Our border ,,, and then ABANDONED them with no means of support or shelter. All for Liberal political purposes. And NONE of you are calling them on it. (and they are doing it again)
    I pledge a $500+ donation to rent buses and move hundreds, thousands, of homeless and illegals to Pelosi's, Schumer's homes. They demand the Homeless & Illegals be "welcomed"? Take video of how THEY "welcome" the destitute. Soros and the Lefties paid to organize and transport those illegals up to Our border ... and then CRUELLY ABANDONED them at the border, We should move them the last miles to the Soros, Pelosi, Schumer homes, where they will be lovingly fed, clothed, housed. Be sure to get lots of video of the warm welcome extended by the Loving Liberals.
    Remove ALL Taxpayer funded guards, barriers, door locks, gates and fences from all Congressional offices, facilities and homes. If OUR Families don't get security CONGRESS doesn't get security. Don't put up with this crap. If YOUR family is "UNWORTHY" of protection the stinking politicians certainly are unworthy.
    What happened to their mantra "IF it saves only ONE life it is worth it"?
    YOUR family's life is not "worth it"?! Not to Congress............
    Climb over THEIR walls and see how you are "welcomed".

    I DEMAND all people be allowed to just walk into the CBSNBCABCPBSNPR studios and walk around, poke at things, do what they want ...... because that is what CBSNBCABCPBSNPR are demanding for America.
    They have WALLS on MSM morning TV ..... look at their shows "on the plaza" They put up multiple WALLS to keep people WHERE THEY WANT THEM and I see GUARDS in the background ..... as they brazenly tell You that YOU have no right to protection. Try stepping over THEIR wall and see what happens. Ever notice there is NEVER a homeless, mentally ill, Person interrupting THEIR precious "on the street" show. In New York -- NO homeless --- because the TV station THUGS get rid of them.

    --- All sorts of pro-Invader propaganda on TV this morning --- demand MSM do as they demand WE do ---
    Is MSM's property and possessions"walled" and not "bridged"?
    Has MSM ever charged anyone with Trespass or theft?
    MSM has no locks on IT'S doors and welcomes anyone just walking into the MSM studios --- RIGHT?
    MSM leaves it's TV vans UNLOCKED and doors open ---- RIGHT?
    MSM Talking Heads have no locks on their houses, RIGHT?
    MSM Executives Never live in Gated, Armed Guarded, "Communities", RIGHT?
    EVERYBODY is welcome into THEIR homes at anytime, RIGHT?

    USA should apply a modern psychopathy test to all who are in- or crave extremely energetically for positions of *power and control*. Within government to start with.

    It is very, very tempting to expect salvation from psychopaths (the Winston Churchill or Allen Dulles type....and "the example used in schools nowadays" : covered SS/SA Mann Prince Bernhard), but since they are intelligent manipulating (beyond belief) *moral morons* (mere acting to be social human beings), you the people will end up "with- or on smoking ruins of sorts". That's a classic in forensic psychology.

    Blinked / caved in. Yes, he did. And now these things will be part of any deal made.

    But, so what. It is all a huge scam. They will “fix” / streamline immigration into the U.S. (you know, cause “we are a country of immigrants” (and morons)), and call it legal. But in the end it is still a ton of people we don’t need voting for demon-rats.

    Close the borders and keep them closed. Only trade should be going on between the U.S. and other countries.

    This looks like a setup to declare a national emergency and go rogue on the border issue. Pelosi is playing her obstructionist role nicely.

      Agreed, but when the Republicans were in control of the House and Senate they should have taken care of this. It is Paul Ryan and McConnell's' fault. It doesn't take a psychic to predict what Pelosi and Shumwad would do. Trump needs to continue playing hardball. He should only 'reach across the isle' to bitch slap them.

        The demonRats already have a judge lined up, waiting for Trump to declare the national emergency and as soon as he does that, their judge will issue some kind of injunction to halt the implementation of it.

        And, instead of growing a pair of Andrew Jackson balls - and ignoring the judge, citing national security reasons and executive authority - Trump will get his legal team to file an appeal to the Supreme Court. This will let the diabolically evil DemonRats to find ways to drag the process out - and remember, the 2020 Presidential Election is now less than 2 years away.

        That means: between now and November 2020, Soros and Schumer will have no obstacles that would interfere with them importing another several million blood sucking turd world parasites - who will be voting in the 2020 general election for DEMONRATS.

        Thus, even if the appeal finally reaches the Supreme Court - and the supposedly 'conservative' justices decide to overturn the lower court ruling that blocked the declaration of a national emergency - giving Trump a victory, the demographic damage will already have hit the tipping point.

        As Ann Coulter has said: "What good is a Wall when 75% of the populations of Mexico, Central and South America are already inside the USA?"

        The virulently anti-White, White race hating, White genocide craving left are always 2 or 3 chess moves ahead of the Stupid GOP.
