The president wants $5.7 billion for the wall. The Democrats, feeling giddy after winning control of the House in last year’s midterm elections, say forget it and have instead proposed spending $1.3 billion for “border security.”
We now have seven seats. It is predicted that we will only have six after next year. We most certainly will lose one to California if they are allowed to count illegal immigrants.
There are several differences in our delegation on the Potomac today and our group of gentlemen congressmen of over 70 years ago.
Liberals are quick to cite stats that show illegal immigrants are less likely to be incarcerated for crimes in the United States than native-born Americans, but the problem is that any level of illegal immigrant crime is too much.
We have a president who was elected by the people of this country. The Dems said no way would he be elected, that Hillary would win hands down (wrong). The working men and women of our great country proved them wrong.

If some conservatives are single-issue voters, so what? What’s wrong with a voter who has a passion about the right to life? Who the hell is Tom Perez to tell them they’re wrong?
