Dems Say They HATE Border Walls, But Spent A Fortune On One Last Year…
The proposal of a border wall between the United States and Mexico is something that any reasonable person would look at and say that if the government can figure out a way to do it than they should.
There are so many Americans that live with locks on the doors or in gated communities that it would be almost hypocritical to say anything otherwise.
Look at what we do when we have to stay at a hotel. One of the very first things that we do when we get into the room is lock the door. It’s not because we necessarily hate the staff or other guests. It’s that we don’t know a single thing about them and wouldn’t be able to properly say whether or not the might take our watch from the room while we were showering.
Having protection along a border is something that is just smart. Look at how many people, even those that live in relatively unpopulated areas have fences that would take you some time to navigate if you tried to go over or through it.
Shoot, my dad lives in a town of less than three hundred people and he has a four foot tall chain link fence around the perimeter of his property. Doesn’t mean he hates the neighbors. Means that he wants to slow down anyone that might try to rob him while he’s sleeping.
Now, Democrats would want people to tear the fences down around their houses while building ones where it is convenient for them.
The 2018 omnibus provides just enough funds to build 33 miles of fencing on the Texas border — but it also provides $500 million to help Jordan build a wall and defense line against jihad terrorists trying to cross its 287-mile border with Iraq and Syria.
SEC. 9011. Up to $500,000,000 of funds appropriated by this Act for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency in ‘‘Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide’’ may be used to provide assistance to the Government of Jordan to support the armed forces of Jordan and to enhance security along its borders.
Democrats had no problem funding the wall in Jordan.
It was not an “immoral wall.”
