MEADOWS: President Trump Is Not Backing Down On The Wall

Published

House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows of North Carolina is making it clear that President Donald Trump is not backing down on his desire for $5 billion in border Wall money.

Meadows, basing his belief on actual conversations with the president, showed resolve in his CNN interview Wednesday. Meadows and his colleagues Jim Jordan and Louie Gohmert have been key operators in the fight for Wall funding. (Here’s the Clip of the CNN phone interview).

“I can tell you, if they believe this President is going to yield on this particular issue, they’re misreading him, misreading the American people,” Meadows stated, throwing cold water on the Democrats’ $1.3 billion counter-offer.

Since President Donald Trump’s base does not mind that the government is shut down, and since the stock market is back up Wednesday, Trump is in a much stronger negotiating position than Chuck Schumer and the Democrats, who are fighting to leave the border un-walled and open to continued invasion by criminal drug cartels.

I reported from Washington for Big League Politics as the Freedom Caucus agitated for the Wall, prior to the shutdown:

Texas conservative Rep. Louie Gohmert brought the thunder Wednesday night as the Freedom Caucus seized the House floor to demand $5 billion in congressional spending for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

“Now we need Americans to help remind our Republican leaders to help our president build the wall — like we said. If that doesn’t happen, I don’t think the Senate can count on being back in the majority. They won’t be – it’s that serious,” said Gohmert in his House floor remarks.

The Freedom Caucus took the House floor Wednesday night to demand $5 billion in congressional funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

“The time to fight is now” declared Jim Jordan of Ohio, who joined with North Carolina’s Mark Meadows in the late-night effort.

The Freedom Caucus sent a clear signal to the commander in chief President Donald Trump: if you veto the “stopgap” bill that kicks the can down the road a few pointless months, then we will have a Christmas season government shutdown. And isn’t time we start saying Merry Christmas again in this Country?

“Mr. President, we’re going to back you up if you veto this — back you up. If you veto this bill, we’ll be there, more importantly, the American people will be there. They’ll be there to support you. Let’s build the wall and make sure we do our job in Congress,” said Freedom Caucus heavyweight Meadows.

“The president, many, many months ago said he would not sign another funding bill unless we gave him wall funding. What did this House do? It passed the bill to fund the Department of Defense and passed a short-term C.R. And said we are going to have that fight after the mid-terms,” said Meadows, who called out loser outgoing speaker Paul Ryan directly.

Here’s what Jim Jordan had to say:  “Everyone knows the old line. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. But we’re going to have to change that line — we’re to need a new one. The new line should be Fool the American people four times, shame on Congress.”

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June

They’re infiltrating the borders again.

Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.

Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.

Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.

Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
