The Democrats have presented their border security counter-offer. Their $8 billion roll-out for addressing the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border features a new icebreaker for the U.S. Coast Guard operating near Alaska’s northern coast. The icebreaker offer will cost anywhere from $700 million to $1 billion, depending on how many are purchased. With a total offer reportedly totaling around $8 billion according to some scattered news reports. With the southern border in crisis, leave it to the Democrats to focus on what’s going on at Alaska’s northern coast.
