President Trump’s move to build US-Mexico border wall has been met with stiff opposition from the opposition party, Democrats, who now has the strength of number in the house. However, Trump’s administration remains bent on getting the border wall built, whatever it takes.
On Sunday, a top aide to the government revealed that the administration is ready to do anything, including shutting down the government, in order to get the necessary funding for the wall.
A senior Adviser to the US government who has been crucial to the governments’ aggressive and controversial immigration policy, Stephen Miller, revealed on Sunday that they are prepared to do whatever they have to do to get the wall built.
In defense of the wall, Miller said the barrier is imperative to stop the ongoing crisis of illegal immigration – referring to the migrating caravans presently at Tijuana.
The administration needs the support of Democrats if the budget funding makes it as part of the broader budget on Friday. Without this, the government may be left with no option than to shut down government according to Mr. Miller.
Border Wall: Part of Trump’s Campaign
Trump stated during his presidential campaigns in 2016 that he will fix the wall with the expectation of making Mexico fund it. Unfortunately, Trump has not been able to get the funding from Mexico and has since turned to Congress to fund the wall.
After last week’s meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Democratic House and Senate leaders respectively, Trump revealed he would shut down the government if he doesn’t get the $5bn funding for the wall.
Schumer reiterated after the meeting that the government will not get his desires as far as the wall is concerned. He said they will only give not more than $1.3bn in public funds exclusively for fencing upgrades and other border security measures.
In reaction to this, Miller said Democrats will have to choose either fighting for America or to promote illegal immigration.
