Urge Congress to keep President Trump's promise and build the wall now!

Make a promise, keep a promise.

President Donald Trump ran on building the southern border wall, and the Republican Congress needs to fund it in the 2019 spending bill this December.

On Jan. 27, 2017, House Speaker Paul Ryan told the American people that, "This is something, [the wall], we want to get on right away. And so we do believe this is urgent. We believe this is one of the most important promises the President made running for office. It's a promise he's going to keep and it's a promise we're going to help him keep." 

Ryan added, “We anticipate a supplemental coming from the administration on defense and the border” and “I’m hoping in the first quarter we can get this done. But again, it’s getting [Mick Mulvaney confirmed as Office of Management and Budget Director and] up and running so they can send us the supplemental.”

Mulvaney was confirmed on Feb. 16 and the supplemental request was proposed on March 14 by Mulvaney and then formally put in on March 16 by President Trump to Speaker Ryan. Trump kept his side of the bargain. But somehow, by March 30, Ryan had changed his tune, telling CBS News, “The big chunk of money for the wall really is… next fiscal year’s appropriations because they literally can’t start construction even this quickly.”

The wall was not funded in the September spending bill either. Then, Ryan called a government shutdown “not necessary” when in fact it may be the only way to get the wall built. He and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised $12 billion to $15 billion for the wall a year ago. Now, all they've got done is the President's $1.6 billion supplemental he asked for last year.

September may be the last chance to get it done and fully fund the wall while Republicans still control Congress with Nancy Pelosi taking over the House in January.

The goal posts have already been moved four times. Time's up. Congress has to keep its word and build the wall!

You know what to do! Let’s urge Congress to build the southern border wall just like they promised. 

The GOP Congress needs to keep Trump’s promise on the wall before Nancy Pelosi takes over the House!

Whatever it takes, the GOP Congress must get that wall built, including shutting down the government if necessary. And they should get it done now!

The cost to build the wall will be recovered quickly thru savings on expenditures for Illegals that we are supporting on both the state and federal levels. Build the wall!

The Democratic Party leaders now oppose the funding of the wall because they choose to deny President Trump success fulfilling his campaign promise. They constantly lie to the American people.

If we don't secure the border and prevent drugs, dealers and radicals from entering our country, then there will not be an United States at all. Those who favor open borders either by comment or by action are treasonous and would deny Americans the rule of law. Their motive is clear, if they can't dupe Americans into voting for their anti-American agenda, then bring tens of millions in that they could. We do need immigrants, but not unvetted hordes.

Building the wall will provide safety and security for American Citizens. Walls are very effective not only for safety and security, a wall will help protect American economic interests. Untold tax dollars are spent on illegal immigrants that should be spent on Americans.

Building the wall will help secure the country and save money. According to Forbes, health care for 3.9 million illegal immigrants costs American taxpayers $18.5 billion annually. Of that total, $11.2 billion in federal taxes went to subsidizing care for illegal immigrants in 2016.

Many in Congress and now out of Congress have previously voted for a wall (or 'fence', if they choose to split hairs to make some weak point). It is pathetic that they would change their course today for no other reason than to push back against our President and the American people. Congress should be considering Citizens (and Veterans!) before illegal immigrants. Take some of that $120-340bn in federal funds that are spent on illegal aliens every year and fund the much cheaper wall! Israel has successfully built a wall, as has Hungary. All countries maintain the right to protect their own sovereignty and decide who can enter. Mexico even has a wall (when they choose to enforce it / keep the doors closed). Pull your political thumbs out of your collective dark places and do your job - vote for American Citizen interests and protections!

I think that it is imperative that the wall is built to prevent not only gang members and terrorists from crossing the borders, but to keep out the massive amount of drugs and other paraphanalia that has already infiltrated our boarders.

We need this wall. Democrats don't care about the safety of the American people, just what is gonna benefit them. And these Republicans have lost their backbone to try and do anything about it. We are in the position that we are in because nobody stood up and fought for what was right for this country. Now we have a president who does want to do that, but he cannot get anything done because Democrats want to fight him and Republicans don't want to back him. We as Americans need to stand up and fight for what is right! BUILD THE WALL!!!

If we don't have the wall to protect us from invasion we will no longer be a sovereign nation. We need to "promote the general welfare", and "secure the blessings of liberty" for legal American citizens.

Please pray for strength, endurance, wisdom, and protection for President Trump. United States citizens need to start speaking up and making our voices heard. We need a wall to keep drug and human traffickers, terrorists, and illegal immigrants who want to live for free in the U.S. using our tax dollars, OUT!

After watching the meeting with Pres. Trump, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer, I am outraged to hear Nancy Pelosi tell Pres. Trump he does not have votes in the house for the wall. How does she know that except that she has watched for the last two years, Congressman Ryan disregard the wishes of the people to fund the wall. Shame on the Rino Republican crowd in the House and the Senate. Shut down the gov't. Funding Planned Parenthood should have shut it down a long time ago. I am begging the American public, if you are qualified to run for office, please give us people we would be proud to vote for to get these people out of office.

We voted for this wall, you ran on building this wall, so do it. Stop making this a political issue, if you believe in our sovereignty, if you believe in protecting the security of the American people, there is no reason not to do this. This is not a political issue this is a security issue.

This is not the 50's anymore. Our country has radically changed - and not always for the good. The wall should not even be an issue. This should have been resolved many years ago by the representatives that were put in office to carry out our wishes in a non-partisan, adult ,manner.. Our country is in financial crisis with an unimaginable national debt, and this issue is one of the major causes to say the least. Build the wall!

Dem's do not want a wall because a wall will stop most illegal immigrants from walking into our country. Without a wall, when they return to power one day, they will just reinstate catch and release, or just let them walk in until they get the votes to socialize our "FREE" country. What freedoms we have left!!! Power and control is what Dem's want, not what is best for a free democracy. They want to lead the people that make this great country work because of free enterprise and jobs that pay enough to live on, around like sheep. Dem's want us to work and pay them to make all our decisions for us. Like, "No Prayer In Schools", Like Men of all ages going into the girls showers at the local swimming pool!!!, Just to name two! That's my two cents.
