President Donald J. Trump is said to have recently let loose on two prominent Republicans who have advised him cave to Democrats and re-open in the government without an agreed upon plan for funding a border wall.
First, Trump rebuked a plan offered up by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
Graham suggested on Fox News that Trump reopen the government for a short period of time in an attempt to get the Democrats to move on funding for a wall.
“I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time, like three weeks, before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal,” Graham said. ““If we can’t at the end of three weeks, all bets are off; see if he can do it by himself with the emergency powers. That is my recommendation.”
“I’m not interested,” Trump reportedly said in response. “I want to get it solved. I don’t want to just delay it.”
Similarly, Trump’s Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney tried to cut a deal with the Democrats earlier this month, for which he was leveled by Trump.
“President Trump chastised his new Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, over his handling of shutdown talks, creating an awkward scene in front of congressional leaders of both parties, according to two sources who were present,” Axios reported.
Apparently, Mulvaney interrupted Trump’s negotiations with the Democratic Party leaders in the room. Trump reportedly cut Mulvaney off, telling him he “fucked it all up.”
The pair joked about the situation after the meeting, but Axios reported that Trump has not been pleased with Mulvaney since the former budget director since Mulvaney initially inserted a $1.6 billion request for wall funding into the 2019 budget. Trump wants $5.8 billion, and has reportedly questioned Mulvaney on why where he came up the $1.6 billion figure in the first place.
It appears that Trump is battling both parties to get his wall funded. Republicans have not seen spine like this from a member of their party during their entire time in government, which they have spent giving into the whims far-left Democrats in the name of “bipartisanship,” which only seems to work in one direction. Standing up for what they want is new territory for them, but Trump has stayed the course.

Up to 200 Smuggled Illegals Run Out of 18-Wheeler Truck in Texas
200 illegal aliens escaped at once.
As many as two hundred illegal aliens fled from an 18-wheeler truck in Bexar County, Texas when the vehicle stopped at a QT gas station on Thursday, presenting a considerable public safety and security threat with the majority of the aliens still unaccounted for.
Witnesses described seeing a group of migrants that amounted to well above a hundred. The migrants fled an 18-wheeler truck near IH-37 and Loop 1604 at 6PM on Thursday, just as the winter storm in Texas hit the community at full strength.
Sheriff Javier Salazar is describing the migrants as nationals of Honduras and El Salvador. He revealed that the migrants were endangered by the smugglers that had shipped them in a refrigerated truck, with the aliens in danger of suffocating inside the airtight truck compartment.
ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations urged the public to come forward with information regarding the illegals in a statement regarding the incident.
“On Feb. 18, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a call from Bexar County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) for assistance on a possible human smuggling case involving a semi-tractor trailer discovered in a local gas station parking lot. About 50 individuals both males and females were encountered. The undocumented immigrants, from Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, are being assisted by community based organizations. HSI special agents interviewed the migrants as part of a criminal investigation, which is ongoing. The status of those encountered is being reviewed. HSI urges anyone with information about this smuggling attempt to call (866) 347-2423.”
Law enforcement believes that the individuals responsible for smuggling the illegals escaped into the nearby woods with the individuals they moved into the United States. Efforts to apprehend the migrant siphon law enforcement resources during a state of emergency, when law-abiding citizens of south Texas are at risk of freezing to death inside their own homes.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spoke of apprehending 50 of the illegal immigrants shortly after the smuggling event, with more than a hundred illegals still loose.
Biden’s “America Last” approach to immigration and border security has immediately spurred a renaissance in human smuggling and illegal immigration, with smugglers advertising open borders to tentative migrants. Even as illegal migration spikes to levels unseen in years, the President instead is evaluating new proposals to convert ICE into a de facto customs agency, leaving the American people without an immigration law enforcement agency.
