A Republican congressman refused to call on House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) to fund a border wall, one of President Donald J. Trump’s main agenda item, when confronted on Thursday.
At first, Rep. Pete King (R-NY) ignored the question. When pressed, he said he would vote to fund the wall, but would not call for a vote on the subject.
It was a typical political weasel move – King tried to absolve himself of responsibility by passing the buck to someone else to call for wall funding.
The idea of a southern border wall propelled Trump to victory in 2016. It is popular among King’s constituents, yet for political purposes he is not bold enough to call for it to be built.
His excuse for not calling for the funding? King said wants to avoid a government shutdown.

SHAME: Joe Biden Claims DACA Illegals are “More American” Than Citizens
American nationality appears meaningless to the struggling candidate.
Joe Biden claimed that DACA recipients are “more American than most Americans are” when campaigning at an even in Nevada Monday night.
"These DACA students are more American than most Americans are." – Joe Biden
The ruling class has already written off the American people.
Their focus is on the waves of people they’re bringing in without your consent.

Biden’s assertion shows the utterly reversed priorities of the globalist ruling class, who fail to understand the concept of national sovereignty in the slightest. In his mind, American nationality is dictated by his own political preferences, without any consideration for American tradition, citizenship, or naturalization laws.
Biden made the striking claim in the midst of an appeal to provide legal status for all of the “DACA students,” as he put them. Not every one of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a student, obviously, but that isn’t preventing the septuagenarian former Vice President from framing the issue in the manner most politically convenient to you.
Joe Biden is possibly resorting to dramatic language on immigration as a result of his struggling campaign. The once-frontrunner suffered a dismal fourth place finish in Iowa, and is looking for a win in South Carolina as a possible lifeline to a campaign on life support.
The possibility of calling Americans less American than those who entered the country illegally alienating lawful citizens doesn’t seem to concern him, judging from his Nevada remarks.
DACA is an extralegal amnesty program created by an Obama executive order in 2012. It creates legal residency for a selected population of younger illegal immigrants brought to the United States by their parents as children, essentially providing a back door around the legal residency and citizenship process without congressional approval.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered DACA to be terminated in 2017. Litigation over the amnesty program’s cancellation has continued, and it’s probable that a Supreme Court decision will determine the fate of the executive program in 2020.
