YES!! WH Determined To Fulfill MAJOR Campaign Promise…

Two Republican senators have proposed sending 3,000 more US National Guard soldiers to quell violence spilling over the border between their home state of Arizona and Mexico. In a 10-point plan for beefing up security in the area, Senators John McCain and John Kyl also called for permanently adding 3,000 US Custom and Border Protection Agents to the Arizona/Mexico border by 2015. They also called for completing construction of 700 miles of fencing along the border and beefing up unmanned aerial vehicle patrols so that they could be run 24 hours a day.

Donald Trump said on Thursday that he wants to see the border wall funded in the spending bill Congress must pass next week to prevent a government shutdown. Paul Ryan and the GOP leadership have said in the past that they will NOT include the funding, saying that the choice is a pragmatic one and the “money will come later.” Presumably, Paul Ryan would prefer not to displease Democrats and risk being blamed for a government shutdown.

 

From The Washington Times:

The White House said Thursday that it wants to see money for President Trump’s border wall included in the spending bill Congress must pass next week — a demand Democrats said sours negotiations and makes a government shutdown more likely.

The demands mark a reversal for the administration, which had been saying it found enough money to build prototypes this year and wouldn’t need a major infusion of cash until next year.

But White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that the wall and the money for more immigration agents are priorities.

“We know there are a lot of people on the Hill, especially in the Democratic Party, who don’t like the wall, but they lost the election. And the president should, I think, at least have the opportunity to fund one of his highest priorities in the first funding bill under his administration,” Mr. Mulvaney said.

President Trump’s border wall campaign promise contributed in large part to his historic victory last November.
