Regardless of the political elite’s crooked agenda, the will of the people will always prevail.
Washington Insiders have tried for years to subvert the American people’s wishes, but We The People have stood up and made our voices heard.
Despite all their tricks and games, politicians are ultimately beholden to the people.
They cannot get away with their schemes forever. Every so often, the people rise up and exercise their will in elections and town hall meetings.
This is just what happened in the election of Donald Trump. The American people took their country back from entrenched, corrupt, Washington elitists.
They elected a man that promised to bring back America, wresting it from the hands of globalists and special interests.
Perhaps the biggest concern of Americans is our national security, in the rampant problem of illegal immigration. Trump promised a wall to protect the country from illegal aliens. Despite time and again working toward it, politicians in D.C.–republicans included–have tried to derail it.
Yet the will of the people will prevail.
The National Security Subcommittee of the House Oversight Committee held a hearing Thursday on President Donald Trump’s signature election pledge of a wall on the southern border.
Check out the hearing starting at 4:10!
Five witnesses, four speaking in favor of the wall’s construction and one against, testified before the Subcommittee.
Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), framed the issue before the testimony of the witnesses. “A central issue of the President’s 2016 campaign was the promise to build ‘an impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful southern border wall,’” he said…
Agnes Gibbony, one of Espinoza’s “angel mothers” whose son was murdered by an illegal alien, took over to add her own horrific experience with lax border enforcement to the congressional record…
Steven A. Camarota, Director of Research for the Center for Immigration Studies, a non-profit dedicated to studying the consequences of immigration, laid out the economic case for the wall.
He cited dates from a National Academies of Science paper and estimates of illegal alien educational achievement to reach some striking conclusions.
“On balance if you take all the taxes that they’re likely to pay over their lifetime, given their education levels, and the services and costs they create, there’s a net drain on tax payers of about $75,000 per illegal border crosser,” he told the subcommittee…
[Agent Brandon] Judd was clear that he does not think it is necessary to build 2,000 miles of wall across the entire border, but that the effect in certain strategic locations could be substantial. “Border security is not cheap, but the cost of doing nothing is much higher,” he stressed.
In light of this powerful testimony, our lawmakers in Washington will have little recourse but to go ahead with plans for the wall.
Much like in U.K.–where liberal lawmakers tried to subvert the Brexit vote–our leaders are realizing that not following through with the will of the people will be far more damaging than to ignore it.
Trump won a huge upset election, thanks largely to his promise to build a wall. Yet insider politicians fear such a strong measure on illegal immigration–because the people who sponsor them will be hurt by it.
But that doesn’t change the fact that millions of Americans want the wall. Our border protection agents have provided facts and statistics that prove we need the wall.
So what else is there to do, but build it?
