As the Government shutdown continues, the mounting pressure on the Democrats is beginning to take hold. Several prominent congressional Dems are stepping back their support for House and Senate leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
Top Congressional Leaders Separate Themselves from Pelosi & Schumer as Wall Opposition Weakens
Here we have Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL) and chairwoman of the DCCC (which stands for Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) speaking on CNN with this to say :
As you see members beginning to crack, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s zero tolerance towards any wall funding is beginning to crumble… Here we have Senator Ben Cardin saying :
“Certainly you need barriers and we support barriers,” Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) added.
The tone in Washington since the Government shutdown began was very unified for the Democratic Party. They would say that “Wall don’t work”, or that they are barbaric or immoral.
Today, Donald Trump went to the border to speak with Angel Mom’s, and border officials about the wall.
Clearly, their opinions are that walls DO work, and innocent families are mourning due to the fact of open border negligence.
Here is Senator Jeff Merkley (Democrat – Oregon) also suddenly changes tone and (flip-flops) by saying that he supports a barrier along the U.S. border with Mexico.
“Some fencing is useful, some barriers are useful,” Merkley said. “There’s a lot of surveillance technology. I’ve been to some cities on the border that have triple fencing and have more personnel and have the technology to see the people moving in the middle of the night.”
As you can see it’s not just one or two Democrat Congressmen and Senators who are changing their tunes…
In this video Reps Jerry Nadler (Dem – NY) the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Eric Swalwell (Dem-California) say that they would support a barrier at necessary points along the Mexico / U.S. border.
Long time Senator Dick Durbin, was also seen on television saying that there should be a barrier.. He speaks about how drug and sex trafficking is a concern for him.
Durbin says that only 1 out of 5 cars are being stopped at entry points and that better detection needs to be put in place to help thwart the inflow of drugs and human trafficking.
Additionally Durbin says that he feels that there will be a barrier in the near future.
A week ago, you would never hear top senators openly admitting that “Walls” can be beneficial towards border security.
The unified democrat “anti-wall” support continues to crack. Here Rep. John Garamendi (Dem-California) says that Democrats have always supported a “fence.” He says :
“Democrats have repeatedly said that we will support border security, we will support all of its elements including fences,” Garamendi said.
Tonight, Democrats are hitting all the Networks and sending the same message… Suddenly, the Dems support border barriers and there would be benefits to repairing fencing and barricades (wall)..
Here Kathering Clark (D-MA), Vice Chair of the Democrat conference says :
“You know, I think there are parts of the border that would benefit from repairing fencing and other barricades that already exist there,” she told MSNBC.
Donald Trump needs to stand firm on his demands for Wall funding. Whether it’s steel slats or a concrete barrier, walls work. The American people want border security and want some sort of control “Legal” immigration.
Two days ago, Pelosi and Schumer stated that walls were ineffective and there would not be a compromise. Now, there seems to be cracks in the Democrat support structure and Donald Trump needs to stand strong.
The final outcome has not yet been shown, but the support that Congressional Democrats need is beginning to weaken.
Stay tuned, political battleground is about to get very interesting.
