OK. So instead of being so obnoxiously stubborn about a southern security wall, and allowing for a degree of national security to be at risk. Why not:
1. Re-open the government and pay your employees.
2. Use the more than $5 billion to improve our coastline ports of entry; hire more border agents for both southern and northern gates of entry. And remember there is the element of ‘home-grown’ terrorists within our country. Let us not forget the Oklahoma City bombing.
Not all foreigners looking to destroy our democracy and country. They continue to want a better life and are more than able and willing to support our Democracy.
The art of the deal should include some compromise.
The art of the con is, well, a no winner on either side.
