I just saw the Democratic leadership coming out of trumps PR "powwow"



..and speak to the press...

For too many years and too many times they would give in for the greater good... giving the pubs so much.

I am proud to see them hold their ground this time. Proud to be a Democrat. Their message to the press was clear and articulated. You do not hold a country hostage over a debate on border security.

I am being affected by this shutdown. I could end up financially destroyed. Homeless.

Please do not give this little (I am all alone in the white house on Xmas) baby his candy no matter how much he cries.

Let the world know there is no art in his deal. He can fold his arms and pout all he wants. NO SOUP FOR YOU!

Basically that border security is an issue that can be negotiated but it requires a comprehensive approach with professional opinions of experienced personnel and real data. It's not something to be used as a political hostage to keep the government closed.

Couple months ago Sky News sent some reporters down to the border to look into the security situation from the POV of some outsiders from the U.K. Their 20-minute documentary shows some issues with the Sinaloa cartel and a long stretch of border in Arizona where there is nothing but barbed wire. There may be other weak points. The Arizona section starts at around 16:00.
