Do Democrats & Trump need to cut a deal on border security funding?

Watch & Comment Live: Trump Participates in a Roundtable on Immigration and Border Security in Texas

by Countable | Updated on 1.10.19

  • President Donald Trump is visiting the border town of McAllen, Texas, to make the case for his $5.7 billion dollar wall with Mexico.
  • Speaking with reporters at the White House before departing, Trump repeated his earlier assertion that he was considering the possibility of declaring a state of emergency to fund the wall.
”If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”
  • The president's visit to Texas first comes as the partial government shutdown reaches the 20-day mark. Trump is demanding $5.7 billion in federal funding to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) have rejected providing any money for a barrier.
  • Are you concerned about border security? Should Democrats agree to more funding? Should Congress fund Trump’s “big beautiful wall”?

—Josh Herman

    President Donald Trump is visiting the border town of McAllen, Texas? It show time with a clown. I came to the conclusion republicans like to be lied too. If you lie about everything, what good is your word? He lied about the need for a wall and dug a hole he can get out of, so he’ll declare a state of emergency which is abuse of power !!!!!!! The dem and rep can Negotiate the wall later, quit using federal employees as political pons !!!!!!! The republicans and democratic can over ride a veto, it the republicans want!

    Security funding, yes. Wall, NO! Nice point about the lies, Dave. Similar to crying wolf! You do it so often, no one believes when you do tell the truth. Not that I believe that will EVER happen with the imbecile we have in charge! He knows nothing but lies...

    No party should fund trump's ugly, hideous wall. Neither Democrat nor Republican. There is no emergency. Don't believe the lies from the fake president.

    Congress promised "Border Security after Amnesty in the 80s. It is time for Congress to uphold their end of the deal. Don't even mention DACA until Our Wall is Build, and we have time to inspect it.

    The trump shutdown and border wall funding, is about nothing more then a ego stroke for his pleasure needs, a legacy wall that the Democratic party can't abolish when they move into the White house in 2020!!!

    Border security is always funded. But the term has become code word for “the wall of ego”. So, of course we will fund border security, but we should not fund billions of dollars for a wall. The wall is something Trump’s campaign came up with to attract a certain mentality of supporters; and it worked. It’s a low-tech, high cost, low return way of making the Trumpsters feel better. And, I don’t believe it’s the tax payers responsibility to keep their egos boosted as the US government piles on more and more debt. It shows me how far our country has sunk in that we’ve got the government partially closed over it.

    Why do you people that represent US in Texas do what Pelosi and her cronies says for you to do??? Is California a great example of how to run a government into the ground!!! Fund the wall, open the government back up?? Make America safe !!!!!! Stop Chain migration !! Show respect for PRESIDENT TRUMP he's done a LOT to help us Americans and he's sure done a WHOLE lot of things he said he'd do!!! That rotten apple core of Demos that are spouting the hate just because he won and they can't figure it out. President Trump won because there's a LOT of us people that are fed up with the lousy representation that have screwed us all these

    Both sides need to stop being children and meet in the middle. Democrats can provide trial wall funding in illegal crossing "hot zones," and use the rest of the money to update the asylum system so we can stop the flow of immigrants and refugees at the source. Boom. A win for Republicans, Democrats, AND Trump keeps his wall promise to voters. Now can I please get paid again?

    There is no way you should cut a deal with that idiot Trump he dug this whole not let him crawl in it and bury himself. The man is a complete buffoon. He’s dragging this country down to his level along with Lindsey Graham they will wreck this country. Both of these people need to go in any other Republicans that band with them. It’s high time Republicans stop catering to 25% of the population. And Lindsey Graham stop catering to anyone who will be nice to him. Let’s get rid of these clowns. And move forward.

    The money that Trump has brought back to this country will pay for the wall more than once. The Dems lie and use fear tactics to convince their ignorant base that a wall is immoral and ineffective. Why the change? FACT: They have all said there needs to be some kind of barrier on our southern border.... go look for yourselves. You are big boys and girls that can think for yourselves, stop letting politicians and the media tell you how to think. So gullible smh

    The demon c-Rats voted for the wall previously. They don't want it now because they hate President Trump and the U.S. citizens. These Traitors (Demon c rats) should have a 1 way ticket to Gitmo for not securing our safety.

    There is no crisis at the border. With $5 billion the government could pay every adult American $1million and have money left over! Make Americans millionaires! Really? A wall? Coyotes dig tunnels. Be realistic about this wall fiasco; build bridges, high-speed rail systems, repair our subways. A wall. What is it good for? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. N&C, STAY THE COURSE!

    Anyone who has seen the news recently and doesn’t think we have a problem at the border, is not living in reality. Walls deter. They work. We need a wall on our southern border.
