    Trump floats backup plan if Congress rejects $5B for border wall

    Trump floats backup plan if Congress rejects $5B for border wall

    By Jordan Fabian - 11/27/18 06:22 PM EST

    President Trump on Tuesday floated a potential backup plan to secure the border if he does not receive the $5 billion he requested from Congress for his border wall, a sign he might not force a government shutdown over the contentious issue.

    Trump said in an interview with The Washington Post that he could opt to keep U.S. troops at the southwest border to continue laying razor wire and installing fencing if Congress does not fully fund his wall. The current border mission is set to end Dec. 15, eight days after some government funding is set to lapse.

    “We need Democrat votes to have a wall,” Trump said. “Now, if we don’t get it, will I get it done another way? I might get it done another way. There are other potential ways that I can do it. You saw what we did with the military, with the barbed wire and the fencing, and various other things.”

    Trump's comments come as members of Congress are facing pressure to come up with a funding plan. The president recently told House and Senate leaders he would not budge from his $5 billion demand for the wall and has previously threatened to trigger a partial shutdown if he does not receive the money.

    The president on Tuesday also argued that images from an area near the San Ysidro border crossing to Southern California, where U.S. border agents fired tear gas at migrants who tried to cross into the country from Mexico, were bad politically for Democrats.

    The incident was the latest high-profile controversy over immigration under Trump, who has faced criticism over the troop deployment as well as a new policy designed to limit asylum claims that was blocked by a federal judge.

    “We desperately need a wall,” Trump told the Post. “I think that’s been shown better than ever in the last short period of two weeks. I see the Democrats are going to want to do something. They understand, too. Those pictures are very bad for the Democrats.”

    The lame-duck session of Congress could mark Trump's last chance to obtain funding for his border wall, a central promise of his 2016 campaign. Democrats will take control of the House in January and they vociferously oppose the president's plan for a new wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

    Yes, just keep the troops on the border with lots of concertina wire and all their other good stuff. I think you need to send more troops to do this along the entire border or at least 1,000 miles of it.

    Deputize local and state police to arrest illegal aliens.

    Transport them DIRECTLY to Federal Tent City on Federal Land with a panel of Federal Judges where they are immediately deported or serve time. No taxpayer funded lawyer!

    This includes ALL Federal Immigration & Visa Law offenders!

    Visa overstays, TPS, Refugees, Asylum, Illegal Aliens, Foreigners and their Minor Children.

    GET THEM OFF OUR SOIL, OUT OF OUR LOCAL AND STATE JURISDICTION, OUT OF THE LOCAL COURTS AND JAILS!

    WE CANNOT LET THE LOCAL LIBERAL JUDGES RELEASE THEM BACK INTO OUR COMMUNITY!

    We don't want to piecemeal the border wall, Mr. President, because there is no guarantee that more money will follow in the years to come. Your virtual surrender on this is dismaying. Don't back down .... continue to press for the full needed amount of $25 billion! Let's not half-step .... get 'er done as promised during your campaign for our votes.

    Oh, and don't you dare give a DACA amnesty for a lousy $5 billion!
