Now we are seeing more and more Democrats coming on board to support some type of wall or barrier. Add that to the Republicans and you are well over 300 Politicians when you add the Senate. What more does Speaker Pelosi need as proof that she’s becoming a lone wolf in this? This from two Democrat house leaders.
Last week on Fox News’ “Your World,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said “physical barriers are part of the solution,” The Washington Free Beacon reported. Another high-ranking Democrat, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., said he supported “secondary barriers” as well as rebuilding existing barriers. We also saw several Democrat Senators say they supported the wall. So why the Pelosi resistance?
This from Journalist Joshua Paladino. ” About a quarter of Democrats in the House of Representatives have publicly stated their willingness to consider a wall on the U.S.–Mexico border as part of the solution to America’s immigration crisis.” “But many reasonable Democrats, who are willing to negotiate, cannot act because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has capitulated to the radical open-borders contingent of the Democratic Party”.
We also have Republican Steve Scalise giving his reason on Pelos’s resistance. “Over the past weeks dozens of Democrats — including their own House Majority Leader — claimed that a physical barrier should be part of the solution to address the border crisis and should be negotiated on once the government reopened,” Scalise said in a statement. “With President Trump reopening the government in good faith, will the 60+ Democrats quoted below follow through on their promises and demand physical barriers be included as part of a border security solution? Or will they allow Speaker Pelosi to give in to the open borders faction of her party?”
In closing, I have to believe that Pelosi is trying to prove that she can run with the big dogs.. What say you?
