1,159-page bipartisan border compromise completed, Dems worry Trump could blow up deal

Congressional bargainers late Wednesday completed a 1,159-page border security compromise that gives President Trump less than a quarter of the $5.7 billion he wanted to build a wall with Mexico.

Democrats say they are confident about having the votes to pass the bill — but not everyone is at ease. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said there is still “worry” that Trump could try to blow up the deal at the last minute because “we have seen that before.”

With Trump’s halfhearted signature widely expected but hardly guaranteed, congressional leaders planned votes Thursday on the sweeping package.

Summaries of the legislation say that besides nearly $1.4 billion to build new barriers, there’s over $1 billion for other border security programs. That includes money for inspection equipment for border ports of entry. There is more than $400 million in humanitarian aid for detained migrants plus funds to buy aircraft and to hire 600 more customs officers and additional immigration judges.

    Trump does not even have to consider talks over Congressional action for the wall, E-Verify and true border security Congress will NEVER pass!

    So, over two years wasted, and you continued to dither with the Democrats and RINO’s when you do not have to! Do not sign that bill!

    Trump is Commander in Chief! The military budget can be used to DEFEND THE COUNTRY FROM INVASION!

    As President Trump can declare a National Security Emergency and…..just …..build …..the ……Dammmned …..Wall!

    Then our, do nothing, Congress and the Courts can’t do a thing.

    …Oh and BTW, …Trump’s SOTU speech?…I listened to what was NOT said!

    Nothing by Trump about demanding mandatory E-Verify.
    Nothing by Trump about eliminating H-1b/2b programs.
    Nothing by Trump about declaring a National Security Emergency.
    Nothing by Trump about using the Military to build a real WALL, not fences.
    Nothing by Trump about deporting all DACA illegal aliens.
    Nothing by Trump about deporting the 12-20 million illegal aliens here now.

    When is Trump going to man up??
    OVER TWO YEARS WASTED NOW.
    Trump, you can K M A!
