Even before Donald Trump was elected President, the border was on his mind.
Then-candidate Trump promised that he would build a “big, beautiful wall” between the United States and Mexico, in hopes of diverting illegal border crossings toward legal ports of entry.
At every turn, the President has been stymied. The left seems hellbent on having open borders, possibly in an effort to bolster their numbers at the polls.
This is why Donald Trump has promised us a wall that is now taking shape in the southeast.
President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.
“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.
“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.
Despite prior evidence to the contrary, 2019 democrats seem to prefer the concept of “open borders” to any other sort of immigration plan – an idea that certainly isn’t popular with the bulk of the American electorate.
