Ok. So in the past 2 years, who was in control over the congress? I believe, it was the republicans that held the majority in both chambers of the
congress. I also believe they had the votes to pass any sort of bill they wanted, even using the Nuclear option in the Senate to get what they
So if in the past 2 years that they held the reins of power, and could pass anything, and get it to the President, then why now the shut down?
Funny, how they had a bill on the table for Trump to sign in December, that he did not sign, and let the government shut down.
This is not partisan glasses, this is reality and the truth.
The truth about this, is that the undocumented person, the illegal immigrant has been an issue going back to the end of World War II, a problem that
has been brought up time and time again, but the government, and that is both parties, refuse to do anything about, let alone take a stand.
And what is even more funny, is that in the past, a wall was never wanted, nor was upsetting Mexico. Ronald Reagan even stated that we needed to be
good neighbors with Mexico and not alienate them, so what would a wall do to that relationship?
Trump ran on a platform that stated that Mexico would pay for a wall. So why is this burden now shifted to the backs of the people? Was that not him
during the campaign making that claim, even where he got people to say: Mexico will pay for the wall?
In short the we were lied to about the wall, and fear was used to justify that lie.
