Battle lines are being drawn in Washington, D.C., over the issue of funding the southern border wall. In a contentious meeting, televised from the White House last week, a heated exchange between Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s over the wall and a potential government shutdown highlighted how far apart the two sides are on the issue.
It, of course, didn’t use to be this way.
In 2006, Chuck Schumer, along with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, voted for the funding of the Yuma Sector Wall, which after being built decreased the crossings in that sector by over 90 percent.
But that was then. This is now. Now the hard-left open border-types have seized control of the Democratic Party. No one in leadership can be seen voting for building a wall: it would be sacrilegious to the left and potentially a career-ending move. Never mind the fact that in so doing the Democratic Party leadership has demonstrated very clearly it’s not interested in prioritizing the interests of the American taxpayer.
