U.S. national security given preference by Pres. Trump
After being repeatedly thwarted by congressional Democrats in his requests for funding to secure our national border, President Donald Trump has resorted to an end run to halt the relentless surges of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens breaching our border. Arriving in caravans, invaders from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have been aided by Mexico, granting them unprecedented access to reach our border.
The Pentagon has announced it is reallocating $1.5 billion to help pay for construction of 80 miles of wall at the U.S.-Mexican border.
The money is made available from savings in numerous defense programs, including those earmarked for Afghanistan’s army and other foreign security forces. In March $1 billion was transferred from Army personnel budget accounts to support wall construction.
The combined total of $2.5 billion is in response to President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border. The President has vetoed Democrats attempts to reverse the emergency declaration.
An enraged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who has a secured San Francisco mansion in the district from which she runs, but spends much of her time at her secluded and protected Napa Valley estate and vineyard was not embarrassed to issue a statement. It said in part, “The President’s sham emergency declaration and unlawful transfers of funds have undermined our democracy, contravening the vote of the bipartisan Congress, the will of the American people and the letter of the Constitution.”
Democrats are known for hypocrisy. This reveal shows their bonding to Second Amendment restrictions doesn’t actually apply to them.
