    After Trump’s Cave, Freedom Caucus to Launch Last Stand for Border Wall in House

    After Trump’s Cave, Freedom Caucus to Launch Last Stand for Border Wall in House


    December 19, 2018

    The House Freedom Caucus will lead a special order on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday evening, where its members will push for funding for President Donald Trump’s planned border wall.


    The push from the Freedom Caucus, where members will give impassioned speeches and lay out a strategy they see as the last opportunity for the wall in Trump’s first term of his presidency, comes as Trump himself and the White House have backed down from a shutdown fight and Senate GOP leaders are planning to punt funding of the government into early 2019 with a stopgap spending bill.



    The Freedom Caucus, sources with knowledge of the matter say, views this fight this week as the last opportunity in the Trump administration’s first term to get wall funding for President Trump’s planned border wall. Next year, the Democrats take over the House majority on January 3, and likely incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi is expected to block any attempts to build the wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. As such, if they are right by their logic, if Congress punts to February–as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pitching with a continuing resolution in a strategy the White House seems to be backing–there will be no border wall before Trump faces voters again in November 2020.

    House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows bashed the Senate’s proposal as a Christmas and Valentine’s Day gift to the Democrats. Meadows is a North Carolina Republican and close ally of President Trump who was in consideration to replace now former Chief of Staff John Kelly at the White House before the president selected Mick Mulvaney as his acting chief of staff:



    Sources with knowledge of the matter tell Breitbart News that the Freedom Caucus strategy is to amend any spending bill brought up in the House to fund Trump’s border wall and close various asylum loopholes that continue to propagate the crises along the border.



    Members of the Freedom Caucus are also lending their voices to the battle via op-eds, including one by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) in Breitbart News, social media posts like Meadows’ above, and on the series of floor speeches in the House on Wednesday night.

    It remains to be seen what will happen in the end, but government funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and about a quarter of the federal government runs out on Friday. An inability to get a deal in the end could derail the fight, but Democrats are likely to go for the short-term continuing resolution, which funds the government at current levels–and does not include border wall money or asylum reforms–in order to kick the fight to when they control at least one chamber of Congress. If Democrats in the House side with establishment Republicans, they could cobble together enough votes to bypass Freedom Caucus opposition to any clean funding measure–but Freedom Caucus members view this as the last chance, so they intend to fight for it anyway.



    The White House, meanwhile, has suggested it has found other “pots of money” in different funds throughout the government that could be reprogrammed to build the wall–but it has not been specific about what those might be. Failure to build the wall along the border, Trump’s core campaign promise in 2016, could be devastating to his re-election bid. It remains to be seen exactly what political impact this could have on the president as he faces voters for the first time since taking the White House.

    Not building the wall because he couldn't get Congress to fund it won't cost Trump any votes. For the maybe 500 people who would vote against this President because of that, there will be millions of new Trump voters who will vote for Trump because of all the other things he accomplished for our citizens and country. and the reason is very simple: there are more protectionists than free traders, there are more nationalists than globalists, there are more capitalists than socialists, there are more pacifists than war mongers, because there are more workers with jobs than welfare suckers without one.

    It's a shame that Trump felt the necessity to cave again ..... he's being doing that quite regularly ..... instead of fighting with the Freedom Caucus for the funding! He should have addressed the nation on all major networks leading up to this fight by the Freedom Caucus instead of tucking his tail between his legs and retreating.

    Trump's either not much of a fighter or he's taking advice to surrender from those he has chosen to surround himself with.

    Trump is smart and he can count. The votes aren't there. They've not been there since he's been President. You can try for awhile to get some DemoQuacks to switch their vote but when it's clear they aren't going to do that because the people who elected them don't want the wall, it's folly. Trump did the shut-down spectacle to get films and videos of DemoQuacks gleefully bragging about not funding the wall and refusing to defend our country and protect Americans from the scourge of illegal immigration. What Trump wanted from this, he got.

    So, he's moving on and will build next year with the $1.3 billion he hasn't spent yet, the new $1.6 billion in the bill now, whatever he can reprogram from other divisions in DHS and whatever he can legally use in the military budget. That alone with what he's already gotten funded and done on wall improvements puts Trump miles ahead of any former President on the issue of border security walls, fences, barriers, etc. In 2020, at his Rallies, he'll map it all out for everyone to see what he did that no one else in DC even wanted to do before he came to town.

    I am so proud of this President. I am so proud that as soon as he got the video of Schumer bragging about not funding the wall, he shut down the shut-down and let everyone know he would build the wall another way so all these federal employees and their families would not be stressing or suffering from a government shut down that would furlough their jobs and delay their income during Christmas.

    Time to quit defending Dear Leader and time to hold his feet to the fire! He is not living up to the expectations of us that voted for him because of the positions he took on immigration and border security during his campaign.

    Creating fiction and attempting to pass it off as fact doesn't work anymore.

    LOL! You've been wailing that for almost 2 years. How's it working out for you so far? You might want to try a new strategy or tactic, because it doesn't look to me like yours is working.
