Some of the many Bills that I am signing in the Oval Office right now. Cancelled my trip on Air Force One to Florida while we wait to see if the Democrats will help us to protect America’s Southern Border! pic.twitter.com/ws6LYhKcKl— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2018
Some facts about House bill before Senate— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) December 21, 2018
$5 billion would fund completion of top 10 border security priorities including (but not only) up to 215 miles of new & improved wall.
The $1.3 billion Democrats say they will support would be as little as only 19 miles of wall
This is what Democrats want to shut down the govt over. Not just a wall,but top 10 priorities of Comprehensive Border Security Improvement Plan.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) December 21, 2018
The costs of dealing with the drugs (heroin & fentanyl) crossing the border is alone enough to justify far more than $5 billion.
If gov shuts down tonight it will be because Senate Dems are refusing to fund even a small portion of the long-term border security improvement plan— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) December 21, 2018
POTUS will have to negotiate with Sen.Schumer. But protecting America shouldn’t be something you have to negotiate about
The Democrats now own the shutdown!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2018
The American people gave us a clear mandate: secure the border and build the wall. @SenSchumer & Democrats have a decision to make: shut down the government or put party politics aside & work with us to defend America’s borders. #SchumerShutdown pic.twitter.com/DjvzIlOzdT— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) December 21, 2018
Border security is national security, the first priority of government and the duty of the commander-in-chief. If Congress does not fund the barrier Trump must veto. He is showing strength and leadership that are too rare in Washington. This is why he won. https://t.co/HaGXMJU2RB— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) December 21, 2018
