Trump Secures Funding for 1000 Miles of Border Wall

February 11, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

A new report is indicating that President Trump and White House officials have secured funding for 1000 miles of the border wall.

According to The Daily Caller:

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.”

Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan said in January he expects to meet President Donald Trump’s goal of erecting 450 miles of new border wall construction by the end of 2020, and the White House maintained that optimism Sunday.

“On the border, there’s great news to report,” the official told the Caller. “The president has kept his promise to secure the border. With funding available, the administration will build up to approximately 1,000 miles of border wall along the southwest border.”

Officials have said the funding and infrastructure are necessary for gaining operational control of the border.

      The wall is not what keeps immigrants from learning english. What keeps immigrants (legals or illegals) it’s a matter of convenience. Stay focus my friend.

      I live in Homestead, Florida just above the Keys. It has almost turned into a third
      world country. There are so many illegals there and our auto insurance is through
      the roof because of them. They drive around town. no license, no insurance.
      I have so many friends that have moved away because they are totally ruining
      our town. We will probably have to move within a year or two. I used to be
      able to ride my horse all over, those days are long gone.
      They do not assimilate, they take over. They make it just like the place they fled.

        That’s always how it is when non-native species invade, they become invasive. Just like dandelions from France, House sparrows and European Starlings ,humans who are not native to the country do the same thing–they over-breed. Have watched sparrows in my yard, they raise young all summer long. Sorry if I sound crude, but think aboit it.

        I live in Homestead as well. I agree with Pfeiffer and we are heading north as soon as it is possible. If you don’t speak Spanish you just don’t get hired. They won’t admit it but it is true. White people are a minority down in these parts. I am not a racist, I get along with everyone and don’t think I am better than anybody else but it’s difficult to see your town turned upside down where you are looked at as the outsider and treated very unfairly. White American’s are not appreciated in these parts anymore.

    The more fence they put up the smaller the gaps to patrol get. Helicopters and CAP planes with heat and motion sensors – night vision. Most towns have at least small airports for light/small aircraft. Those airports usually offer flight instruction. The student pilots could be used to patrol as well as a part of their training possibly receive some government funding for expenses involved and assistance with financing flight schools.

    Well it’s about time for America to get the money for the wall, I’m hoping now that the house will get over it and start doing something to improve the country and not for their own pockets!!
    With the funds secured and construction is in the process of being built!!
    With that being said, I don’t want to hear anything more from the”house”!
    Now it’s time for everyone to get together and start working on other topics!! I personally think that if these Congress members should not collect ant pay for the time that they did anything except to cause havic and disbelief among the people who voted them into this seat of Congress, only to do nothing to make America great again!!
    With this said I don’t believe that these members of Congress deserves to be able to hold that office ever again and be released from their chairs and never be able to
    hold any position of the Federal government!!

      House AND Senate will NEVER get over it. Their mission is to try to persuade America to not vote for Our President TRUMP. By the way have you all noticed that EVERY Democratic Candidate wants to take something AWAY from you be it your Constitutional rights to your money and one even one wants to limit how much you can earn and anything over that amount would be taken away from you and given to someone else! There goes incentive down the tube. Why work hard, the government will take it away from me and mine! Socialist and Communists!
      I want you to think about something and spread the word. The Democrats used to be for a whole host of things that would benefit We the People, But now that President Trump is the President, they are now not for those things. Do you understand what that really means. They would rather that YOU do without these things until they get their own person in the White House rather than have to say a Republican President did it. They are putting themselves first before We The People! Politics before the People, how disgusting!

      The Democrats are already planning on their next Hoax. They are not going to let this go and they have all of the major newspapers and media to back them. They want to subpoena John Bolton and what ever they can do to take it from there. Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, Schumer, Maxine Waters and many more should be put out of office but I doubt that will happen. These are loathsome people who are screaming because their lock on the government, their control, their ability to lie and fool the public is over except for some brainwashed Dems like Millennials, & die hard Democrats etc. People who watch nothing but CNN and MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC all of these channels hear nothing all day and all night except how Trump is a criminal, a traitor, a very dangerous man in the White House, they say he is like Hitler, he is a racist, does not care about the people. Every channel spews out Propaganda & poisons peoples minds. There is NO way the Democrats are going to work with Trump. The only way to end this is to win the Majority in the House and the Senate. That will do it. Vote Republican or face more of the same misery we have all been put through. These sick Democrats are so desperate to get Trump out they will stop at nothing!

    Remember what the person said about illegals taking over and not assimilating to the USA. They bring all of their 3rd world country doctrines, language and culture into our country. They become little Venezuela or little Mexico etc in the USA. Wake up America!!! Our Country as we know it is going out the proverbial window in a very fast moving car!!!!!!
    The Dems only want their (illegals) vote so they can do a TAKEOVER. The welfare of citizens already here are of no concern to the Dems otherwise they would’ve voted for social programs for the USA like infrastructure. The American citizens are having a TAKEOVER from within!!!! Nasty habits of third world countries is what the USA is revolving into. Take off the blinders ppl!!!!!
