The Democrats are not messing around.
They are using every trick in the book to defeat Donald Trump.
And now this judge just handed down a ruling that could cost Trump the 2020 election
Trump’s biggest issue since beginning his campaign is building a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.
There is no issue more important to his supporters than that, and it is something he is working overtime to get done.
But the radical left is working overtime as well, but their goal is to destroy President Trump’s wall by any means necessary.
So far, considering very little has been built, they have been rather successful.
If he can’t get it done, it will be a major blow to his 2020 efforts at re-election.
So Trump is continuing forward, even receiving billions of dollars to build vast amounts of his wall.
Those funds are diverted from other programs which had not yet used certain funds.
$600 million comes from the Treasury Department’s forfeiture fund, $2.5 billion comes from the Defense Department’s counter-narcotics activities, and $3.6 billion comes from military construction projects.
All of these funds go to better use in building a wall.
Particularly, the counter-narcotics activities funds are helpful, considering building a wall will be a permanent solution to many of the drug smuggling problems.
But according to an Obama-era judge in California, that doesn’t matter.
U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam blocked the $2.5 billion coming from counter-narcotics activities.
Gilliam states that the funding mechanism isn’t legal considering it didn’t go through Congress.
“Congress considered all of defendants’ proffered needs for border barrier construction, weighed the public interest in such construction against defendants’ request for taxpayer money, and struck what it considered to be the proper balance — in the public’s interest — by making available only $1.375 billion in funding, which was for certain border barrier construction not at issue here,” Gilliam’s order reads.
But he completely ignores the fact that the funding going to the wall is to support the efforts the funds were already going to.
There is no better way to fight back against drug trafficking than building a wall on the border.
Currently, drug cartels can easily smuggle massive amounts of illegal drugs across the border with no physical hindrance.
These drugs are killing massive amounts of American citizens every year.
Trump is trying to do something about it, only to run into intense opposition from Democrats.
But Democrats don’t care.
No matter what the excuse they give for opposing a wall on the border, in reality, they simply support open borders.
It is proven that walls work to stop illegal immigration.
Israel, which is surrounded by hostile enemies, has been able to stay secure due to their wall.
There’s no reason the U.S. can’t do the same to stop the current crisis on the border.
Do you support building a wall on the border with Mexico?
