Nancy Pelosi is in an all-out war against President Trump.
She wants to ensure he fails on his campaign promises, especially when it comes to building the wall along the Southern border.
But Trump is fighting back and left Pelosi furious after demanding something huge from her.
Securing the country is the most important job of the U.S. government.
But for many years, government officials have been ignoring that duty by allowing illegal immigrants to flood over the border in historic numbers.
Once inside, these illegal aliens often commit violent crimes.
All of this can be stopped if simple steps are taken to secure the border.
A huge step towards national security would be building a wall on the border.
Israel has a wall separating them from violence and it works very well.
But Democrats claim the same won’t work in the United States, and Nancy Pelosi is leading the fight against Trump to prevent the wall from ever happening.
Nevertheless, Trump continues to make headway in his campaign promise.
His national emergency declaration leaves Congress out of the question altogether.
The Pentagon is working with him now and using military infrastructure funds to go towards the wall.
But the money from the Pentagon isn’t enough to tackle the problem, which is getting worse by the day.
Border patrol is seeing an unheard of influx of illegal immigrants, with hundreds coming across at a time.
And Central American drug cartels are using the current weakness at the border to their advantage.
So Trump is demanding $4.5 billion in emergency border funding from Congress.
The request includes $3.3 billion for humanitarian assistance, $1.1 billion for border operations, and another $377 million for the National Guard and Pentagon operations on the border.
The acting White House budget director Russ Vought sees this as a necessity, telling the Washington Post:
“The situation becomes more dire each day. The migration flow and the resulting humanitarian crisis is rapidly overwhelming the ability of the Federal Government to respond.”
Nancy Pelosi clearly isn’t happy about it and will most definitely fight it tooth and nail.
Meanwhile, Border Patrol is beginning to run out of money to properly supply the influx of illegal immigrants who are in custody.
The Yuma Sector of the Border Patrol has already spent $600,000 on formula, diapers, food, and other basic care in the current fiscal year.
This is up $300,000 dollars from 2018’s fiscal year.
If this isn’t a crisis, it’s hard to understand what would be.
Do you think we have a crisis on the border?
