    Trump: 'Republican leadership being 'played like a fiddle' by Dems on border security

    BY JOHN BOWDEN - 09/15/18 07:23 PM EDT

    President Trump accused congressional Republicans on Saturday of being played "like a fiddle" by Democrats on immigration reform and border security.

    Trump also issued another call for his signature campaign promise of a building wall along the U.S.ĖMexico border.

    In a tweet, the president slammed Democrats for their immigration proposals, which he likened to "open borders" while accusing "Republican leadership" of going along with the minority party.

    "When will Republican leadership learn that they are being played like a fiddle by the Democrats on Border Security and Building the Wall? Without Borders, we donít have a country. With Open Borders, which the Democrats want, we have nothing but crime! Finish the Wall!" he wrote.

    Trump's tweet comes amid months of inaction from Congress on immigration and border security.

    Republicans and Democrats have been unable to pass a bill that would fund the president's demands for a wall along the border and increased security, while providing legal protections for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

    Earlier this year, the president directed hundreds of National Guard troops to the border to supplement Border Patrol forces.

    In June, it was reported that those troops were performing menial tasks such as changing flat tires and shoveling manure from Border Patrol horses, as they were not permitted to assist with enforcement operations.

    Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union that represents Border Patrol agents, at the time called the president's use of National Guard troops a "colossal waste of resources."

    It seems Trump may finally be paying attention to some of the print media coming from the anti-illegal immigration groups. Now he just needs to keep the pressure on by using his twitter for something constructive like this instead of the constant whining about the Russian collusion probe.
