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 spending bill due in 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.”

Now, Ryan is signaling that the wall will not be funded in the September spending bill by calling 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 promises $12 billion to $15 billion for the wall in January. Now we'll be lucky to get the $1 billion supplemental that was already supposed to pass in April.

Speaking with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Sept. 5, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif.) took funding for the southern border wall off the table for September, saying that "We've got a lot of busy things happening here. We have to deal with Harvey, we have the debt ceiling, we have a continuing resolution, which will be just about a three-month continuing resolution. So, you will deal with the wall a little later in the year.”

Ryan already moved the goal posts twice, and we can't let him do it again. He is locked in to provide the funding for the wall next year in the September continuing resolution. Now it's locked in for December. But Congress is rapidly losing credibility on implementing any parts of the Trump agenda that won the election in 2016. 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, for failure would be a politically devastating betrayal of the voters that who elected both President Trump and the GOP majorities in the House and Senate.

Whatever it takes, the GOP Congress must get that wall built. And they should get it done now!

They should pass a law that makes half of all drug asset seizures go towards building the wall and also offer citizenship to any illegals who would agree to work on the wall for a few years for food and shelter only.

Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell, be part of the solution and not part of the swamp. Your recent actions demonstrate you are in thrall to the Washington establishment rather than loyal to the voters. The American people are your employers--you owe us your loyalty, and your obligation is to keep your promises to us.

Dear Senators and Rep. Even though tens of thousands of the democratic votes have been shown to be illegal Pres, Trump still won! Please try to get Ryan and Mitch to accept that fact! I 'd hate to have to come over there and tar and feather you'all.

There remains no legitimate reason for Congressional leadership not to work with President Trump to do what is one of the main reasons why Federal Government exist, to provide for common defense of U.S. citizens, in this case protecting border by building a wall.

The wall must be built NOW. The money saved by not having illegal's on welfare and in our jails will pay us back every year. BUILD IT NOW. There are a lot of Congress that will be up for election and you should think very serious about that.

Donald Trump repeatedly stated he would build the wall,and Mexico would pay for it ( via taxes on Mexican goods brought into the USA, or by any number of other means the Trump administration could employ). Mr. Trump was elected President,and one of the primary reasons they voted for him was they agreed that erecting a wall on our southern border is essential. Paul Ryan initially assured Americans that building the wall was an essential and urgent goal that he intended to keep on behalf of President Trump. But by March 30 of this year House Speaker Ryan reversed his January promise to devote $12 to $15 billion for the wall. Speaker Ryan must keep his January promise to the President and the American people to properly fund the wall so its immediate construction can begin.

The people elected President Trump because he made promises that the people saw as they are choices. To build a wall, to strengthen our economy, to abolish political correctness and return morality to this nation. I am one of those people. You were my representative. Forget your own wishes and listen to the voice of the people. That was what you were elected to do .
