Sen. Schumer says he will sue if Trump uses the Pentagon money for the wall.
One of the most frustrating things about democrats opposed to “The Wall” is that they fail to understand that the U.S. will put the money up, but Mexico will pay in the long run due to border charges and other fee increases. President Donald Trump has made this plan very clear, time and time again, yet some like Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) purposefully refuse to acknowledge that fact. As Breitbart News has confirmed, leftists even want to decide how construction is to happen, as if they had won the election!
Likewise, the Washington Post has written that, according to Schumer, if the Commander in Chief tries to “use military funding to build his border wall,” he will be “blocked by lawsuits.” Since the money is to be put back after tariffs and other means force Mexico to rightly pay for the wall, where the money comes from to construct it should hardly even matter. Truly, they are just angry over the president’s “bait and switch” techniques that he is forced to use to accomplish anything.
Since illegal migration is a matter of safety and concerns those from another country (many other countries), using the military (even if never repaid) is certainly a legal maneuver.
Mr. Trump wants only a “very small portion” of the $700 billion dollars allotted to the armed forces so that American can be made safe from illegal immigration and the many woes that it brings.
“This would be a blatant misuse of military funds and tied up in court for years. [Defense] Secretary Mattis ought not bother and instead use the money to help our troops, rather than advance the president’s political fantasies,” the New York liberal whined. To Schumer, keeping the citizenry safe means very little, as his words imply.
Congress has given Mr. Trump, thanks to leftist wrangling, only $641 million for border security, even though the president has shown that this matter is a “national security” issue. Any time that illegal aliens are storming over the borders in droves, this would be the case, and it is happening daily.
The president is allowed to shift a “small percentage” of money in the budget around, yet democrats refuse to accept this truth, too.
Mr. Trump has shown that being Commander in Cheif of the military means something. He tweeted, “Because of the $700 & $716 Billion Dollars gotten to rebuild our Military, many jobs are created and our Military is again rich. Building a great Border Wall, with drugs (poison) and enemy combatants pouring into our Country, is all about National Defense. Build WALL through M!”
Many of the drugs coming into America are poison, for they are not even the drug that is claimed, quite often. This is one reason why so many people are overdosing on drugs that they have taken (misused) for years at even low doses. The drugs are cheaply made and utter poison, so he has a point that is clear to see.
Defense Secretary James Mattis will likely oppose the idea since he avoids political stances, but this issue of The Wall should never be a political football. Mr. Trump fairly won the election and was chosen for his post by voters who want the border wall to be built. They long to see illegal migrants unable to arrive (at least at numbers anywhere near where they are now) and they want to see those here deported until they apply legally.
To impede Mr. Trump as he tries to keep his promises is to set up one’s party for a dreadful defeat in the midterms, perhaps.
Mr. Schumer should keep this fact firmly in mind.
