    Can you post a link to the polls that show most Americans want Pelosi to stop "obstructing" Trump and put funding in the budget for a wall?

    Simple.
    It doesn't matter anymore. All he has to do is let the public see the Democrats NOT protect the border.
    And next time, there will be double the number of "refugees" all over the place. It'll be a real ****-show.

    Enjoy that...

    Trump and his supporters don't give a **** about the Constitution as was made clear by his emergency declaration to subvert Congress' powers.

    No she cannot. There is no such poll by a valid pollster. Yet another "alternative truth".


    Trump makes Republicans choose between him or their principles. The loyalty tests never ever end, and the choice shouldn’t even be difficult.

    What horse ****.
    What Constitutional law has he broken? I understand this was the first Executive Order from Trump?

    Wrong, it shows they are bit willing to pay for a wall that will do little to stop illegals from entering. You do know most illegals cross at checkpoints that have a wall, don't you?

    The question is more about how the border is secured. The Democrats already approved funding to continue securing the border; this becomes an argument over not wanting to secure it as Trump wants to.

    And Pelosi won't put it in the budget.

    Which one is causing the government to be shut down?
    He is. It doesn't matter if you voted for him on that issue. Many other people voted against him and/or for many of those Democrats sitting in Congress right now to oppose that issue, to do their job and only go forward with reasonable measures for the border. Many in this country do not consider a border wall to be a reasonable measure at all, and push those in Congress to not support it, not fund it.
