Any Republican That Will Not Pledge To Support Trump’s Border Wall Should Not Be Running For Congress

Now that Donald Trump is president, he is the national leader of the Republican Party, and anyone that disagrees with his most important policy proposals should not be running for Congress.  We need to send people to Washington that will help our president get things done rather than standing in the way.  For decades, illegal immigrants have been pouring across our unsecured southern border, and this has created havoc in communities all across America.  We must build Trump’s wall, and we must insist that every Republican that wants to run for a seat in Congress take a pledge to support the president in this endeavor.


Those of us that are pro-Trump are certainly not against immigrants.  After all, Trump’s own wife is an immigrant.  We just want everyone to come in through the front door, but right now we have a system of immigration that is completely backwards.  We have made it exceedingly difficult to try to come in through the front door, and meanwhile we have left the back door completely wide open.  Drug dealers, gang members, terrorists, sexual predators and other lawbreakers have taken advantage of our lack of security, and this must end immediately.

I am a 100% pro-Trump candidate for Congress, and if I am fortunate enough to win my race I will do whatever I can to get Trump’s wall built.  My stand is getting noticed all over the nation, and at this point big names such as Ann Coulter are supporting my campaign for Congress.

President Trump isn’t asking much.  According to Time Magazine, he has requested just 18 billion dollars over the next decade to extend and repair the current wall…

The Trump administration has proposed spending $18 billion over 10 years to significantly extend the border wall with Mexico, providing one of its most detailed blueprints of how the president hopes to carry out a signature campaign pledge.

The proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for 316 miles (505 kilometers) of additional barrier by September 2027, bringing total coverage to 970 miles (1,552 kilometers), or nearly half the border, according to a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the matter.

In addition to that, Trump wants another 17 billion dollars in additional border security spending.  So in all, Trump is only asking for 33 billion dollars over the next ten years.  The following comes from the Daily Mail

The Customs and Border Protection document calls for a total of $33 billion in new border spending, including $18 billion for the wall, $5.7 billion for technology gear, $1 billion for road construction and maintenance and $8.5 billion for 5,000 new Border Patrol agents, 2,500 border inspectors and other personnel, the U.S. official said.

This is a very, very reasonable proposal.  But at this point the Democrats don’t seem likely to budge.  In fact, they are insisting on making DACA legislation a part of the upcoming budget agreement in January, but they aren’t willing to give Trump any money for a border wall in order to make that happen.

Fortunately, Trump is not going to be pushed around.  According to CNS News, Trump has made it abundantly clear that there will not be any action on DACA unless the Democrats are willing to agree to money for his border wall…

Democrats have made DACA legislation a priority for 2018, but in a Dec. 29 tweet, President Trump indicated there will be no legal status for illegal aliens who came to this country as children unless he gets his long-promised border wall.

“The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!” Trump tweeted last Friday.

The fact that I am willing to stand with Trump is just one of the reasons why voters all over Idaho’s first congressional district are so excited about my candidacy.  In the most recent KIDO online survey I received more votes than all of the other congressional candidates combined, and we continue to pick up more momentum with each passing day.

We need to send a fighter to Washington, because the Democrats are going to continue to play hardball.  Just consider the recent words of House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley

“I think there’s a false premise here, in other words, equating security and border security with the DACA individuals themselves. They are not a security risk to the American people. They love this country. This is the country they know and love, and they are now in a state of limbo. And unless the president, who has promised to address this issue, works to make that happen in a clean bill, that’s what Democrats are looking for. A $40 billion wall is a waste of government money. … You can’t drive on it. You can’t live in it. You can’t do anything with it, and it really is just a waste of government resources.”

A border wall is most definitely not a waste of money.  It has been estimated that illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers more than 100 billion dollars a year, and a border wall would only cost a fraction of that.

Yes, we must work very hard to make our system of legal immigration a lot less complicated, but at the same time we must slam the back door completely shut so that everyone is forced to come in to our country through the front door.

That is where I stand, and I am not moving.

    Well done & well said brother Michael. Never mind what the heretical Jesuit Pope Francis says or thinks or the useless & morally bereft & bankrupt Democrats think or say either. God bless you & your family in your worthy & much needed Campaign for Congress. SHALOM!!!

      At least liberals/democrats tend to care more for the environment. Under Trump we’ve gone back to dumping toxic waste in waterways, killing bears as they sleep, the biggest reduction of National Monuments in U.S. history, and similar things from the past.

      • Wayne Jon Pearson.

        Hi Twix. I am not aware of those things but if true then you have valid points & it is sad news indeed. Yes the environment should be respected & looked after by whoever is in power at any given time. In the Book of Revelation it says that, ”God will destroy those who destroy the earth.” So He will judge whoever mistreats the Environment & the Earth in general & never repents for those misdeeds, crimes, etc. That day is coming VERY soon in fact as we look around the world and see the ever accelerating pace of events pointing to the very soon coming of Jesus Christ in the clouds of heaven with power & great glory as has been prophesied so clearly and accurately in the Holy Bible. Take care & God bless you my friend. Thanks for your response to my comment & for being concerned & caring about the environment as it is very important and as a Christian I believe it to be my responsibility too to be an effective Steward of God’s creation & the wonderful planet in which He made & in which we live. Cheers!!!

          The Trump administration also denied I think 25 imperiled animals protection under the Endangered Species Act. There was a whole list of things about how he’s destroying the environment if I could find that site again.

    I have thought the border wall to be a stupid use of money from the beginning and I still think so.
    Others have tried it only to find to their dismay that people go around it, over it, under it with no problems whatsoever as did the Germans with France.
    If a barrier were to be effective we should go for a Panama type canal along the border between the United States and Mexico and produce a money maker.
    It would be an expensive investment. But it would be useful as it would allow ships to go between the Pacific and the Atlantic at a fraction of the cost it is done at Panama. A side effect would be to make it more difficult to cross the border between our countries. The Mexican people are ingenious so I suspect it won’t work any better than any other border fence might.
    I would put a super highway on our side of the canal. That makes defending the border a whole lot easier.
    The main reason for the border fence is to generate income and a flywheel for the economy. That it will do and employ a lot of people. So why not go to a 100% commitment that is much more expensive and generates a whole lot more jobs.
    When billions of dollars worth of drugs depend on an easy entrance to our country such a fence is laughable. These are the same people that tunneled into a Federal Prison and successfully took one of their own back to Mexico.
    They actually put the tunnel directly under the prison bathtub in his room.
    That is what we are really up against.
    I have a modest background in security from the USAF. I really do not know it all and neither do others. Murphy’s law will work overtime if we put up a fence without backup.
    If you want to really stop illegal immigrants from Mexico I suggest you make it unprofitable for people on this side of the fence to illegally hire these people.
    Start with bankrupting the employers of these people and throw them in jail for income tax evasion. I have serious doubts that internal revenue is collecting money on their wages.
    The reason that will not likely happen is these people are rich and powerful.
    The law is prejudiced. It favors anyone able to hire a really good attorney to defend them.
    But that is another story. Just like we have laws about the draft in which even foreigners residing here have to register. Their classification when I was young was C-1 through C-4. And a lot of Indians classified technically as a foreign nation were drafted during the Vietnam era under that C-1 classification.
    Do we still keep those foreign nationals on reservations?
    In a simple English sentence, the wall as planned will not work.

    Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest person, is a big supporter of illegals so lets put our money where our mouth is and stop linking to him. Actions speak louder than words.

    The problem with Congresscreatures is that they don’t want bad publicity. And they know that if they go along with Trump’s program they’re going to get savaged in the media. So there are two problems:
    1–Thin-skinned, irresolute, wishy-washy congresscreatures
    2–A hopelessly, disingenuously biased media reporting mainly opinion parading as news.

    I buy that. Any politician that is not stupid enough to support this hair brain idea ought to be opposed. How do you cross a border with $20,000,000,000 thirty foot wall…..get a thirty foot ladder. Should take about 20 seconds loner than stepping across a line in the sand.
