One day after the House passed a spending bill that included $5.7 billion in funding for the President’s border wall (over the objections of Nancy Pelosi, who famously declared during last week’s contentious meeting with the President that the votes simply weren’t there), President Trump, who is insisting that he won’t sign a spending bill unless it includes funding for his border wall (after briefly ‘caving’ on the wall earlier this week), tweeted this morning to urge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to fight for the border wall “as hard as he fought for anything”.
President Trump on Thursday threatened to “close our southern border” if the Mexican government allows Honduran migrants to approach the U.S., and if Democrats continue to resist his plan to build a border wall.
Official government incident reports obtained by Judicial Watch after three years of delay provide a clearer profile of “unaccompanied alien children” during the Obama administration. A substantial number of the children were abused en route to the United States or in the United States, and government workers and contractors were among their abusers. The Obama administration presided over a humanitarian and public safety nightmare in its handling of the unprecedented border surge.
