Part of our government is shutdown over Christmas. Your illegitimate president made a decision to make life unpleasant for tens-of-millions of Americans. Even the National Christmas Tree is dark.
The White House originally indicated that Trump agreed to keep the government open until February 8th. However, when extremists on the right criticized his decision he reneged and announced that if nearly six-billion dollars was not designated solely for his ‘wall,’ he would not sign the budget. That’s where we are today.
Democrats openly say that they would fund border security, but not a 16th century wall. The technology exists which would protect our borders in a less costly and more effective manner. This didn’t stop Trump from telling more lies.
“Virtually every Democrat we are dealing with today strongly supported a Border Wall or Fence,” Trump tweeted. “It was only when I made it an important part of my campaign, because people and drugs were pouring into our Country unchecked, that they turned against it. Desperately needed!”
Okay, here’s the truth. If you have read other articles on this subject, written by yours truly, I apologize. However, I promise to always tell the truth so here goes.
More than 50 percent of all illegal immigrants living in America arrived legally on commercial airliners. After obtaining a ‘visitor’s visa,’ they flew from Asia, Africa, South America, and Europe; they never returned to their homes. These individuals have proven to be a far greater danger to our nation than Hispanic immigrants from the south. Trump is a racist. Hitler hated the Jews, and Trump hates Hispanics.
More facts. Immigration is an extremely complicated problem, and a wall is not the solution. Republicans must become serious and work with Democrats to find solutions to all of our nation’s many and serious problems. Our government will remain dysfunctional unless a bipartisan effort to deliberate and compromise returns to Washington.
Republicans must inform Trump that we are almost in the year 2019. They must also stop him from acting in a fascist manner. America must not accept a bully for their president.
On November 3, 2020 we can take our country back from failed Republicans. Join us, it’s the right thing to do. This is our country, not theirs.
