Democrats hate Americans. There can be no other explanation except for their maniacal hatred of Donald Trump, but my guess it’s a heavy dose of both.
Democrats who say technology is better than a wall know it’s a lie. You can’t add enough drones and Border Patrol agents to cover the entire border. If they concentrate on several areas, drug mules and human traffickers will just cross where they aren’t. Back in 2006, many of the same Democrats in the Senate were for a wall.
They include Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Ron Wyden, Debbie Stabenow, and Sherrod Brown. But now, each and every one of them opposes the same wall they voted for previously.
Byron York writes at the Washington Examiner:
When Democrats embraced the ‘Southern Border Fencing Strategy’
In 2006 Congress passed the Secure Fence Act, which mandated the construction of multilayer pedestrian fencing along about 600 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border. It passed with big, bipartisan majorities: 283 votes in the House and 80 in the Senate. Some top Democrats who are still in the Senate today supported the fence: Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Ron Wyden, Debbie Stabenow, and Sherrod Brown.
Just the next year, Congress made clear it didn’t really mean what it said. The new law was amended to make fence building optional.
In 2013, Congress got back into the fence game. The Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill included something called the “Southern Border Fencing Strategy.” It called for 700 miles of at least single-layer pedestrian fencing along the border. It wasn’t a standalone measure; the fence was to be part of a broader package of border security measures alongside provisions that would create a process by which the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants would ultimately gain a path to citizenship.
I guess they hate Trump more than they love America. In fact, we have it on good word that several of them have “standing orders” to oppose anything Trump puts forth, no matter what it is.
