Democrats have spent the last half year trying to distract the country with a bogus impeachment scandal. They hoped to get people to forget about the historic victories Trump has achieved for the country. But guess what—they failed. Not only has Trump seen his poll numbers rise, but he just made another big announcement about the border wall. Democrats must be gnashing their teeth right about now.
It’s been some time since we’ve heard about the crisis at the border. That’s because A) the media wants you to forget about it and B) Trump has been getting it under control. All that talk about overcrowded detention centers and family separations only mattered when the left could use it to slam the Trump administration.
Recently, the president has been able to get the situation under control. Detention centers are all but empty, as illegal aliens are returned to their countries of origin. Migrant caravans (which are still forming) are being stopped at Mexico’s southern border. Migrants will have to apply for asylum in the first country they enter—not the United States.
But don’t be fooled. Securing our border is far from finished. Illegal immigrants will stop at nothing to sneak into the country. And Democrats continue to try to protect and reward those who break our laws to get here. The only real permanent solution is Trump’s promised wall.
And we just got much closer to seeing it completed.
The Trump administration is shifting its border wall focus from procuring resources to breaking ground on new construction after securing funds for 1,000 miles of new wall along the southern border, White House officials tell the Daily Caller…
The fiscal year 2021 budget requests fewer funds for border wall construction than in previous years, but a senior White House official explained how the administration has “now shifted from securing funds to being able to build more wall.”

It looks like the Trump administration has the cash it needs to go ahead with building a large portion of the wall. Customs and Border Patrol said it will finish 450 miles of wall by the end of this year. But they’re not stopping there. Customs says they have the funds to complete 1,000 miles of new border wall.
Next year’s funding will focus on infrastructure, technology, and law enforcement. We know that Trump’s border “wall” is actually an advance system of layered steel fencing. It uses surveillance technology to monitor key portions of the wall. If a border jumper tries to make it over the first fence, Border Patrol has enough time to be alerted and apprehend them.
This is good news for anyone that cares about America’s national security. Democrats have attacked Trump’s immigration policy since the day he announced his candidacy. They seem to confuse legal immigration with illegal immigration—intent on protecting people who break the law.
But it’s no secret the damage illegal immigration causes to our country. Not only is our border exploited by drug runners, sex traffickers, and human smugglers, but illegal alien workers take jobs from Americans and lower wages.
Sanctuary cities are overrun with crime, poverty, and drug addiction. That’s in no small part to the large number of illegals in those cities. Coupled that will other insane, far-left policies, cities run by Democrats are in massive decline.
Conservative cities and states? Yeah, they’re doing just fine. The economy is soaring and Americans are finding good-paying jobs. That’s because these places embrace and enforce Trump’s policies. Their borders are secure and criminals don’t get off scot-free.
If only the rest of the country was smart enough to do the same. Oh well, I guess they won’t learn until they vote Democrats out of office.
