A Tuesday Breitbart article compiled all of the young Democrats in Congress who are ready to make a deal with President Donald J. Trump on the border wall, bucking party leader and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Her compadre, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) urged Democrats to stay unified on the issue on Wednesday morning.
But it appears that Chuck and Nancy are having a difficult time keeping their young guns in line. Several freshman Democrats in Congress are speaking out against party leadership, and want to make a deal with the President.
“It is time for congressional leaders and President Donald Trump ‘to stop hiding and show a little leadership’ to end the longest federal government shutdown in the nation’s history,” freshman Rep. Jared Golden (D-Maine) told the Lewiston Sun Journal. ”
Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.), also a first-term Congressperson, apparently agrees with Golden.
“There’s a number of us on the Democratic side who are quite concerned that we’re not working on negotiated positions and taking the bull by the horns and trying to think about what it would look like,” Slotkin told Wall Street Journal.
New York Democratic Rep. Max Rose is ready to wheel and deal too.
“All we’ve done in the House is repass the Senate bill. Now that will allow us some freedom, some space, some real debate. The Senate, though, has to show their independence. I just got out of a bruising fight with my House leadership. Let’s open the government back up and let’s get back to work,” he said, adding that he was sick of government shutdowns being used as negotiation tactics.
The same goes for freshman Rep. Anthony Brandisi (D-N.Y.), who – get this – is listening to border security experts and is apparently interested in doing what’s best for the American people, which is a fresh new look for a Democrat.
“If you listen to all the experts, they’ll say some elements of physical barriers where it makes sense are in order. We need more border agents, we need more technology at our border crossings and ports of entries so trucks and shipping containers are inspected before coming into our country,” Brandisi reportedly said.
According to Breitbart, several other young Democrats, including Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.), who said her constituents were concerned that they were not being prioritized, Rep. Colin Allred (D-Texas), who wouldn’t “rule out” a compromise with Trump, Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Ga.), who is actively seeking to compromise with the President, and Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-N.J.), who said he would vote for compromise.
Breitbart noted that some Democrats even want a wall, including Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.), and Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.), both of whom have publicly expressed support for a physical barrier.
The Democrats backing away from the fight on this issue shows that Trump is winning. He should stay the course until the wall is fully funded and construction is underway.

Biden Pledges “Not Another Foot” Of Border Wall Construction If He’s Elected President
A return to the open borders status quo.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden pledged that construction of new border wall would be stopped in the event he’s elected president, halting the progress that has been made in building a wall under President Donald Trump’s administration. President Trump proposed the construction of a border wall as his signature campaign proposal in 2016, and the federal government has built more then 265 miles of new border wall during his tenure.
“There will not be another foot of wall construction in my administration,” President Biden promised in an interview with the Dallas Morning News. Biden went on to claim that the federal government would use “high-tech capacity” on the border, an approach long favored by Democrats who emphasize promptly placing illegal aliens into the asylum process over enforcing American immigration laws and deterring illegal entry.
Biden would also end litigation to confiscate land along the border for national security purposes. “End. Stop. Done. Over. Not going to do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not going to confiscate the land.”
Biden did decline to commit to “tearing down” the border wall that has already been constructed.
Illegal immigration has begun to surge once again as the American economy progresses from the damage of the coronavirus pandemic, and Border Security have recently apprehended large groups of criminal aliens working with open borders groups in smuggling operations.
A hypothetical Biden presidency would all but invite hundreds of thousands if not millions of illegal immigrants to the country, with prospective border crossers hoping to take advantage of a lax immigration enforcement system focused on a few hardened criminals.
