Nancy Pelosi says funding for Trump's 'immoral, ineffective, expensive' border wall is off the table

Source: business Insider




Joe Perticone 36m

Nancy Pelosi called for a yearlong continuing resolution on funding for homeland security.
She dismissed a compromise of exchanging border-wall funding for a DACA solution.
Pelosi, the likely next speaker of the House, called the construction of a border wall "immoral, ineffective, expensive."

WASHINGTON Nancy Pelosi, who's set to become the next speaker of the House when the new Congress begins in January, shot down negotiations that would include funding for President Donald Trump's long-desired wall along the nearly 2,000-mile US-Mexico border.

Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that pairing wall funding with a permanent solution to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was not on the table and that she would prefer Congress pass a continuing resolution for Homeland Security before Christmas.


"What we want in this negotiation, I can say, and it wouldn't be a surprise to anybody is we'd like to just go in and say it's December. We've lost now another week for a legitimate purpose but nonetheless, we're getting closer to when this CR expires," Pelosi said. ..................................


"[Trump] also promised Mexico would pay for it, so even if they did, it's immoral still and they're not going to pay for it," she said.

1. It also doesn't have the votes to pass the Senate either. The question of course is willl thethe co

republicans hold country hostage and close the government down if the wall isn't approved

2. The answer is simple...

Mexico needs to write a check for it like a certain someone claimed they would.

4. This is good news.

Nancy once took investigations into war crimes by the 43 administration "off the table." This is not an opinion, moderators. It's a fact.

Nonetheless, she's probably the best person who can hold the Speakership at precisely this time.

7. In the future, college students will study Pelosi as a central figure in taking back the reigns

of our Democracy.

The utter antithesis of McConnell.

Go Nancy. You have our hearts in your arsenal.

10. Mexico's paying for The Wall. Full stop.

That was The Promise.

The first brick goes down when the pesos, all of them, are in the bank.

This should be no problem for The Master of the Art of the Deal.

11. Trump should've taken the DACA deal that Schumer & Pelosi offered last year.

Or was that this year?

Anyway, there's a new kid in town!

15. I had a dental appointment at my VA clinic yesterday.

While waiting, I was listening to a small group of veterans talking about how Obama never did anything, Trump was doing what this country needs and how we definitely needed the wall built because we are being overrun by illegals. I asked them why they should be receiving free medical but my son had to pay and when did Mexicans stop flying over the border and how does the wall supposed to stop their boats. I only said this because weapons are not allowed in VA clinics. No, they did not answer me.

20. Good on you!

NOTHING disappoints me more than to hear active military or veterans supporting this coward and wreckless blowhard, let alone the republican party and mythical ideology. It just says "blind stupidity" to me.

I'm a Vietnam veteran. 11bravo, and I seem to get easily frustrated and impatient with ignorance. I've always said, since my earliest days of traveling the world at age 18, our country is chuck full of ill informed, under-educated morons. The ""ugly American" abroad has been a personal embarrassment for me. I really am ashamed of a large number of my fellow Americans.

Veterans should know better, but unfortunately many don't. Falling for the crazy catch phrases from this con-artist just demonstrates how ignorant we are as a nation. Really sad. It's only gotten worse since I was 18.

19. Fund the wall by assessing fees on all businesses and people

who have hired undocumented workers. The IRS could run a program to identify those who hired. Pay rewards for successful collections.
