    Luckily these are all non essential employees so imo Trump should give a deadline to the Democrats. Fund the wall or the government will remain shutdown indefinitely and those non essential employees will be fired.

    The election ends and the GOP wanted to forget about this because they never ever wanted to totally shutdown the border. Even Trump wanted to forget about it, he was ready to sign off on a bill to keep the government open.. The people who didn't forget about it was Fox and the Con media.. Because as soon as they yelled, Trump jumped and backed off signing the bill.

    So here we are, with millionaires like Limbaugh, and Hannity and Coulter leading as billionaire around by the nose while middle class people aren't getting paid.
    The GOP doesn't care, 40 years they have been pulling this to dupe their dumb base. Go on and on about this manufactured crisis, use illegals as scapegoat while they give the country away to the ultra rich. 2013 Senate passed a bill with 40 billion for border security. Boener didn't even put it up to vote. Republicans don't care about border security.

    And yet, time and time again, the dumb republican base just continues to be duped by the same bull****.

    I was going to post a hit piece on Graham, what a dolt, but I realized that with further developments the whole of congress is doltish.

    The wall is a controversial notion on every side. Congress hates with a passion to become involved with controversial topics lest it hurt their reelection bids.

    I stand with Trump!
    All Graham wants...all of congress wants...is to not act on wall legislation. Kick the can down the road in hopes that won't hurt their reelection bids. I have news. More and more voters are fed up with this congressional inertia are are planning measures of term limits for congresspersons...and limits for lobbyists.

    I don't care if Virginia and Washington DC hate term limits and limits for lobbyists, the rest of the country wants them.

    See, this is the question 'wall-haters' refuse to get into a detailed answer, 'Why do you hate the wall?' Or how about any answer for this one: 'Why are you for border security?'

    Note: Wall-haters don't answer. Is it one of their talking points? No wall?

    Most Americans agree with President Donald Trump that a "crisis" is taking place at the southern U.S. border and now we hear this morning that there is another Honduran caravan on their way.
