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.

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 the midterms up in November.

Ryan has already moved the goal posts four times, and we can't let him do it again. He is locked in to provide the funding for the wall now. Time's up. 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!

Illegals are costing the American taxpayer millions every year, and this has to stop. Build the wall and keep illegals out; remove all freebies to those non-citizens not trying for citizenship already here, and deport the illegals.

There will be consequences for both Ryan and McConnell if that wall is not started ... and soon! Ryan has always been ok with illegal immigration and McConnell is simply a do-nothing who has always been about himself.

If Mexico can build a wall on their southern border to protect themselves from their southern neighboring countries, so should we build a wall to protect us from our southern neighboring country.....Mexico!.

Illegal aliens are costing us 100s of billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded services. Many of them are also contributing to the millions of illegal alien votes during election cycles, most of whom vote for Democrats. A border wall would easily pay for itself in a few months.

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.
