Democrats rejected President Trump’s proposed compromise to end the partial shutdown of the government. The president proposed $5.8 billion for a border wall–in exchange for extended legal residence for illegal aliens in the DACA category and for foreigners allowed to stay in the U.S. temporarily following disasters in their countries. Many in the latter category should have gone home already because the disasters that prompted them to leave are long over.
The Democrats said Trump’s proposal didn’t go far enough. We want want the people covered to have permanent residence and a path to citizenship. Many of the president’s supporters felt that the compromise went too far by offering extended residence for no more concessions than wall funding.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi thinks a border wall is “immoral” even though she and other opponents of a border wall have walls around their personal properties. Said Carlson, “We contacted Speaker Pelosi to find out [if she thinks personal walls should come down]. She didn’t reply. Neither did the other Democrats we called. It turns out they have no plans to eliminate anyone else’s walls, and certainly not their own. They just don’t want a wall to protect America. They don’t think our country deserves that.”

Most of the Honduran caravan of migrants, totaling 1800, have crossed into Mexico. The new Mexican government has apparently adopted a policy of acquiescence, distributing identification armbands to each migrant and permitting peaceful entrance over the same bridge where last October’s caravan met (futile) resistance.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) charged that the “Democrat strategy” is to import an underclass of foreign-born voters in order to enhance Democratic political power. He stated, “The Democrats have seen how [mass immigration] affects political power, regardless of [immigrants’] ability to support themselves in our country. Hopefully from [their] vantage point, [immigrants] will be dependent on welfare . . . as soon as they can be registered to vote, [which will turn them] into a dependable Democrat voter. And they hope to do the same thing they’ve done in California to the rest of the country.

Former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer endorsed President Trump’s proposal for a border wall. She stated, “I often used to say, a country with a border secured is like a house without walls, it collapses. You have to have your houses protected or it will collapse. And if you don’t have a wall on the border, our country is going to collapse. It’s as simple as that. And it doesn’t seem to be something that’s very hard to understand. . . . The Democrats, the left-leaning liberal Democrats just want open borders. I think that’s very plain. “
