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!

The wall or fence is part of the Federal Governments constitutional duty to protect America. Those in congress who deny support for the wall are serving their own self interests and are not interested in keeping American citizens safe from drugs, human smuggling or terrorism. Any congressional member not in favor of border protection are breaking their constitutional oath. Are you listening Senators Flake and McCain and Mr. Speaker?

The wall needs to get built ASAP! Liberal judges must stop blocking laws that make it illegal for non-citizens to come into the country. The wall is just the beginning of policy change.

Edmund Burke, an English statesman said many years ago “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” When Congress won't support the President and the will of the people, evil wins. While so many in Congress sit on their thumbs, evil is triumphant.

BUILD the WALL NOW! We do not care about the cost. Congress has never cared about over spending before so why now? Put the money out and in time we will need less border agents and drug rehabs, which will be a huge savings later. We DEMAND the wall and you work for us, so get it built ASAP!

Also cut off ALL entitlements to illegal immigrants. This will reduce their motive to enter and help pay for the wall.
