    The Democrats are willing to work across the aisle to solve the immigration problems. However our obstructionist president is threatening to hold the country hostage again to get his way for a vanity wall. And it's sad to say that the Republicans are enabling him and supporting him on this absurdity. Republicans are supposed to be the fiscally responsible party and they have proven that that is not the case with the tax cuts they've given and the spending that has driven us deep deep into a deficit and now Trump wants all this money for a wall we do not need. Hire a historian and strap Trump in his chair so that he has to listen to the history of walls. Walls do not work not the way he thinks they do. And I'm talking about walls from the Great Wall of China through to the wall in Germany. What works is to find Solutions and to work with our neighbors to find Solutions to help these people have a better life. We also need to decide if we are going to stand for our words carved in the base of the Statue of Liberty. Give us your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to be free. Immigrants built this country. We stole it from the Indians but we are what built this country today and immigrants are what will continue to build this country. Trump is practically an immigrant himself since his mother was born in Scotland. Four of his five children are all children of immigrants. That is to say that most of his immediate family is at best first generation American. And based on that fact alone he should have far more respect for immigrants and what they can do for this country. Trump is a hypocrite. The only thing he is interested in is what kind of money he can make off of immigration and immigrants. Including his using illegal immigrants to build some of the buildings in New York. The man's hypocrisy knows no bounds. He is using the Immigrant issue 2 Drive division in this country and to rile up his base that is too lazy to research any topic and it's just easier for them to take the word of a lying con artist. There is no National Emergency on the US Mexico border. The only National Emergency America has is a president who should be removed from office. And the GOP party that would rather toadie to this loser of a president in the hope of gaining more power in the country than to actually Serve the People. This is a democracy we are not well-served by one party in power if anything we need more parties so that we can be addressing more Diversified concerns.
