TRAITORS! These GOP Reps Are Stopping Trump From Building Border Wall

By

Democrats are said to be winning the war over President Trump’s proposed wall along the border with Mexico.

But they’re only winning because several prominent Republican members of Congress are siding with the Democrats!

The Hill has the frustrating report:

Despite President Trump’s request for more than $1 billion to fund the Mexican border wall this year, GOP leaders are expected to exclude the money in the spending bill being prepared to keep the government open beyond April 28.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says the choice is pragmatic and the money will come later.

Among the loudest GOP skeptics are those representing border districts. Reps. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), for instance, hail from districts that span a combined 880 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. They’re pressing the administration to justify the huge costs.

“We recognize the need for robust border security and infrastructure to ensure public safety and increase cross border commerce,” the lawmakers wrote recently to top administration officials. “We also have an obligation to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars.”

And some Republicans are concerned that deteriorating relations with Mexico may be too high a price to pay for the wall.

In a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing Wednesday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) expressed concern to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly about a growing resentment in Mexico over the administration’s border policies.

What Paul Ryan and John McCain are failing to take into consideration is that the American people voted for Trump based on his firm promises to them.

AND ONE OF TRUMP’S BIGGEST PROMISES WAS COMBATTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION FROM MEXICO BY BUILDING A WALL.

If these clowns block Trump now, they could pay for it at the polls.
