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!

We need to control our borders. We as Americans have a right to know who is coming into our country and what kind of people we are letting in here. Innocent people have lost their lives or have had harm come to them because of this and I am not saying that all refugees are bad people but there are some who will try to force their beliefs onto others and that is not right. Take one look at Europe's migrant problem it is terrible there. I'll admit I am even afraid to take a vacation to Europe because of how bad it is over there.

We spend BILLIONS on illegals, they take our jobs and commit horrible crimes, not to mention the danger of a nuclear or dirty bomb coming across the wide open, non-existent border.

We The People need this wall ASAP. Many people would like to know in what way we can assist and get this started and completed ASAP. There are alot of seniors (myself included) that would like to try to help however we can even though our funds are limited. Please let the citizens know what they can do to help with this project and other projects/concerns that need to be addressed. Thank you for all you have done &/or tried to do for America. WE have been paying into this for a long time and that money should get it started.

With what the wall will prevent in taxpayers covering free medical care, free schools, free housing, social security, welfare, et. al., the wall will more than pay for itself in a very short time.

The wall is necessary,not only for America's physical and economic security,but for it's cultural security. If America is to morph into something different than what it was founded as,that should be a decision made by the American voter,not one inflicted upon us by external forces. Trump promised the wall. Trump won the election. Help him honor his pledge.
