The Young Conservative reported that American’s hope that Trump is going to keep his promise about the wall.
At some point we wondered how would the Congress react to this wall plan?
From BizPac Review:
No need to wait on a bill from Congress. Turns out, Donald Trump’s most repeated and significant campaign promise is a building project that could literally get started on day one.
That’s because Congress has already passed a bill that authorizes a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
In fact, the Secure Fence Act, passed with bipartisan support in 2006 including “yea” votes from then Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to “take all actions the secretary determines necessary and appropriate to achieve and maintain operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders of the United States.”
According to the Washington Examiner’s Byron York:
Specifically, the law called for the usual mix of high-tech sensors, cameras, border checkpoints, vehicle barriers and other measures along the U.S.-Mexico border. And then it ordered Homeland Security to “provide for [at]* least 2 layers of reinforced fencing” and “the installation of additional physical barriers” for hundreds of miles on the southern border. For example, it ordered double fencing for the area “10 miles west of the Calexico, California port of entry to 5 miles east of the Douglas, Arizona, port of entry” — a span that would cover nearly the entire Arizona-Mexico border. The law ordered heavy fencing in other border areas as well.
The law’s reference to “at least” a double-layer fence, plus its mention of “additional physical barriers,” suggests that Congress specified the minimum amount that Homeland Security should do — not the maximum.
This may change things for good. Hopefully.
Dems can’t play on Trump.
Get your fireworks read, people. You can use the same fireworks Hillary cancelled.
Do you think the border issue will really become an issue? How will it end? We bet that Trump knows what’s he doing.
