GRASSFIRE -- Republicans and Democrats have reportedly come to terms on a spending bill that could avert another partial government shutdown at 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday. But the budget deal, as it stands now, is likely to be a huge disappointment to President Trump and his supporters. According to The Associated Press, the "still-secret agreement" provides less than $1.4 billion to build just 55 miles of new border barriers:
"That’s well below the $5.7 billion President Donald Trump demanded to build over 200 miles of wall along the Mexican boundary. The money will be for vertical steel slats called bollards, not a solid wall."
This "garbage compromise," as FOX News' Sean Hannity called it last night, was reached "after Democrats dropped their proposal to limit the number of detained immigrants caught inside the U.S. to a daily average of 16,500. Republicans opposed that demand. There is currently no such limit," the AP reports.
Hannity is absolutely right. This deal, if reports are accurate, is a "garbage compromise." Republicans aren't winning if the President only gets one-fourth of the money and one-fourth of the wall he and the American people want!
(Also, the Democrats' demand for a limit on "the number of detained immigrants" is absolutely ridiculous! The Left is brazenly promoting and encouraging illegal immigration by asking law enforcement to excuse law-breaking by looking the other way!)
As Grassfire urged our team members yesterday, American patriots can't let House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and their radical, leftist allies undermine our Commander-in-Chief's efforts to secure our borders. Democrats MUST be held accountable and work to protect the interests of American citizens rather than criminal, illegal aliens!
