President Trump has received support from Lindsey Graham over a government shutdown, renewing the call to trade DACA for the Wall. The Washington Examiner reports:
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., hailed President Trump Tuesday for his efforts to extract extra funding from Congress to bolster border security, despite the looming threat of a partial government shutdown.
“Great job sticking to your guns on border security, Mr. President!” Graham tweeted Tuesday after Trump clashed with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the top two Democrats in Congress, in a fiery Oval Office meeting held partly in front of the press.
“You are right to want more border security funding including Wall money. They are WRONG to say no. Put DACA on the table and make them say NO to the Wall and DACA,” Graham wrote, referring to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Trump is asking Congress to approve $5 billion in border wall funding before a Dec. 21 deadline for a new spending measure. Congressional Democrats, however, are unwilling to consent to more than $1.6 billion in what they call border security, with Pelosi explicitly ruling out money for a wall along the southern border with Mexico.
The DACA-Wall trade deal has already been offered by Republicans. Now that Democrats will be in the House majority, they will bear more blame if the government shuts down. Will they be willing to sacrifice DACA just so they can spite Trump and refuse wall funding?
We need to put a wall along the Rio Grand, that extends north from the state line of Arizona, and follows up the state line of California. that way, The bitch can route all her beloved illegals into her state,and coddle them there. the rest of the (still) united states can continue to keep them at bay, if they cannot come through LEGALLY !
The answer to the question you posed is yes! They don’t give a dam about the country only about the power!
Look I ama citizen of the US, i came to the USA legally 48 years ago . Any one who want to come , to the usa they need to follow the law. Our nation have been robed by Democrats , who are not for the people , but for their own selfish need , the Democrat should be send with the migrants to those country , and take away their citizenship ,. Enough is Enough .
Pelosi and Schumer should be deported..

No immigration laws. No control over who is allowed entry into our country. Can anyone imagine what it would be like if all the people in the world who want to relocate to the United States were allowed to come and resettle here? Can anyone understand how that would affect our society and our economy? Does anyone understand the devastation that would ensue?
“Wall is Immoral” – but how would you be able to control thousands of asylum seekers and economic immigrants? As we have experienced, nobody is willing to engage in any logical conversation.
1. You could increase the border patrol staffing and electronic surveillance
2. But that would not stop the flow, particularly the drug trafficking and human smuggling
3. As long as the entry to the USA is perceived to be easy, more will come and take their changes
4. Now once they (Central Americans) are on the US soil, we would have to process each immigrant and review their asylum claims – huge increase in staffing
5. Where would we retain (house, feed, medicate, educate) these thousands of ‘applicants’ – now they are released to the country with a future court date – exactly what they were looking for
6. Only 20% or so will ever show up for the court date months or even years later, and only 1% of the asylum seekers will actually qualify
And that at WHAT COST – house, feed, medicate, educate – not to mention legal (incl. translation services) and prison expenses, as well as the exposure of the US citizens (school children particularly) to already radiated deceases.
An issue nobody is talking about – displacement of the lower skilled Americans in the workforce.
