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!

It is obvious that the Republican RINOs are only interested in the Democrat agenda. They are, therefore, looking for the Democrats to take over the majority in Congress, the Senate and the Presidency by sabatoging President Trump. The RINOs and moderates must be voted out and replaced by conservatives.

Paul Ryan is showing his distain for the voters of this country. We elected Donald Trump as POTUS not Ryan. Get with the Trump agenda or get out of the way. Elections are coming next year and we the people can and will remove the obstacles holding this great country back. RINO Ryan is looking more and more like a disgusting Harry Reed/Nancy Pelosi lite.

It has become clear that many in the GOP want to stop the President's promises, and believe me, the voters see it and are very disgusted by it. We will vote you out of office if you continue the delays. We want Obamacare ENDED, the wall BUILT, and taxes REDUCED. If you cannot understand that and accomplish it, time for YOU TO GO.

Although it's a sizeable expense up front it should offer a huge savings in manpower over the long-haul, and help slow drug traffic to the north and money and guns to the south.

I live in Tucson Arizona and its not just Mexicans who come across our border, but from every country in the world. China, the middle east, Isis, and Drugs. There is Government land a few miles from Tucson that has signs that the Government says we can't go there as it's to dangerous because of the Drug runners. They have people up in the hills with equipment to spot the Sheriffs and radios to tell when to bring the drugs through. We need the wall and we and we need it NOW!!!

It's the same old politi-speak from Ryan. I'd really like to see a politician do what they said they would do. Enough excuses already. Get it done!

Paul Ryno needs to go. All RINO's need to go. We elected Pres Trump and expect the Republican party to stand behind him. I am thoroughly disgusted with mainline Republicans and can guarantee if Trump is not supported by the party, the party is no longer supported by me. Enough is enough, now do your jobs and get this DONE!

The voters as TRUE AMERICANS can vote anyone that does not vote in favor of the out of office. Anyone in congress that wishes to take in four or five illegal families into their homes to support at absolutely without any expense to the taxpayers fell free to forward and sign up for this.
