‘Why are we fighting over this?’ asks Democrat
Yesterday, Republicans and Democrats from both houses of Congress met to begin negotiating a deal to fix America’s broken border security. President Trump set a deadline of February 15 for Congress to reach a bipartisan agreement.
It shouldn’t be difficult. Both parties say they want border security, and the evidence is overwhelming that physical barriers must be a part of any solution. They not only cut down on illegal immigration, but they protect our brave law enforcement officers from having to confront dangerous smugglers and traffickers on American soil.
Outside of the far-left fringe, many Democrats actually agree. Recently, a number of lawmakers began to distance themselves from the abolish-ICE, open-borders activists:
The question is who will win—sensible Democrats who are accountable to their constituents, or Democratic leaders who are accountable to their fringe base?
- “Give Trump the money,” Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) says. “Why are we fighting over this?”
- “There are gaps” along the border, Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) explains. “For many of us, there’s not really doubt that some kind of physical barrier is necessary.”
- “Where folks say we need additional barrier protections, I’m all for it,” Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) says.
- “I will vote for efforts to secure our Southern border that are done in an effective and efficient way,” Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) tweets. “And if that includes additional physical barriers, then I would support that.”
