Democrats Continue to Hold Americans Hostage


Trump Lays out Case for Border Funds

The President took nine minutes on Tuesday night to explain to Americans why a partial shutdown of the government remains. Trump has told Congress he will not sign a bill to fully fund the federal government unless it includes $5.7 billion for border security.
The Problem

There is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. We are out of space to hold the thousands of illegals trying to enter our country every day, and have no way to promptly return them back home to their country.

Illegal immigration strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages. Hardest hit are African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans. The southern border is also a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs. Every week, 300 citizens are killed by heroin alone—90 percent of which comes across southern border.

In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records: 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.

Illegal immigration harms children and women. In December, 20,000 children were illegally brought into the US, and one in three women are sexually assaulted along the journey to the US.

The Remedy

A proposal was developed by law enforcement and border agents at DHS, which includes cutting edge technology. It requests more agents and more immigration judges. It provides funds for humanitarian assistance and medical support. It closes border security loopholes to return children back home safely.

A physical border wall costs $5.7 billion. It will pay for itself because illegal drugs cost the US $500 billion a year. Additionally, the wall will be funded by the new trade deal with Mexico.

The Opposition

Democrats have repeatedly supported a physical barrier in the past but won’t acknowledge the crisis today. They refuse to provide border agents with tools they need to do their jobs. The government is shut down for one reason only: Democrats will not fund border security.

Trump has invited congressional leaders to the White House on Wednesday for a meeting to discuss the issue.

In Summary

“Some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences, and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is the politicians do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.”

The President finished by highlighting four unnecessary tragedies:

  • Officer Singh in California who was gunned down by an illegal alien
  • An Air Force veteran in California who was raped, murdered, and beaten to death with a hammer by an illegal alien with a long criminal history
  • An Illegal alien in Georgia who beheaded and dismembered his neighbor
  • MS-13 gang members who arrived in the US as unaccompanied minors and stabbed and beat a 16-year-old girl in Maryland

“This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve. When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country and that is what I will always do so help me God.”


Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) gave a joint response to the President’s address. They said he used the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis and demand funding for an ineffective, expensive wall.

Pelosi said that the women and children at the border are not a security threat, they are a humanitarian challenge.

Both demanded that Trump re-open the government and end the victimization of the 800,000 federal employees who are furloughed.

Why this Matters: The House, which writes and passes a budget for the Senate and President to sign, is now under Democrat control. They refuse to include money for border security, but did manage to find it in their hearts to provide $54 billion of taxpayer money to give to foreign governments.

When the government re-opens, everyone who has been furloughed will likely receive back pay, as has happened with every other shutdown. They haven’t missed a paycheck yet, but they will if the shutdown isn’t ended by January 15.

In 2013, all 54 Senate Democrats voted for $46 million to build a physical border. Walls work! There has been an average drop of 90 percent in illegal traffic in El Paso, Yuma, Tucson, and San Diego–where physical barriers have been expanded.

Please call your congressman (click here for link to phone numbers) and tell him or her that any spending plan must include the President’s request for increased border security funding. Ask that he or she vote “No” on Speaker Pelosi’s appropriations bills.

How to Pray: Father, hear our cry for justice for our nation. Put a hook in the jaws of Democrats and bring them to the negotiating table with a mind to fund the wall. Continue to give our President direction and guidance. Comfort all those who mourn because their loved ones’ lives were tragically ended by illegal aliens. Put it in the minds of those who are trying to come here illegally to turn back home. We ask these things in Jesus’ almighty name.

Mark 23:27-28 – Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
