A Secure America Requires A Secure Border Wall: So Build It

Border Wall: President Trump brashly announced "I'm proud to shut down government" if the soon to be dominant Democrats in Congress don't fund his southern border wall. Is he bluffing? Probably not. It's one of the main promises he made during his 2016 presidential campaign. He should keep it.
Democrats and Republicans have been slugging it out toe-to-toe for weeks now over building the wall. Democrats have offered a grudging $1.3 billion to build the barrier to illegal immigration, while Republicans seek $5 billion.
Meeting with the Democrats' leaders, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and soon-to-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Trump was blunt: "I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck."
He means it. And he should. Earlier this year, Schumer & Co. pushed hard to give amnesty to the so-called "Dreamers." He shut down the government for three days before caving in. Why? Because he feared the illegal immigration issue was so potent it might damage the chances of Democratic congressional candidates.
At the time, the big media treated Schumer as a brave statesman who used all the tools at his disposal to get what he wanted. His closure of the government was viewed almost as a humanitarian gesture, rather than pandering to the far-left of his party and the burgeoning Hispanic vote.
