Pelosi and Schumer made several claims last night, including that a border wall doesn’t work, it’s immoral to build a wall, and that America doesn’t build walls because that’s not who we are as a country. Their memories must not be working well, or they are lying through their teeth. I think it’s the latter. Just ten months ago Pelosi and Schumer supported building a wall in Jordan, and they even provided $500 million to build it. Why would they do that if a wall is immoral and as ineffective as they say? Because they are willing to protect Jordan but not the United States. Maybe they should be in the Jordanian legislature.
From The Gateway Pundit
Nancy Pelosi argued this week that “walls are immoral.”
Chuck Schumer called President Trump’s stand against open borders a “manufactured crisis!”
But less than one year ago Pelosi and Schumer approved funding on a 287-mile long border wall — in JORDAN!
Neil Munro at Breitbart.com reported at the time.
The 2018 omnibus provides just enough funds to build 33 miles of fencing on the Texas border — but it also provides $500 million to help Jordan build a wall and defense line against jihad terrorists trying to cross its 287-mile border with Iraq and Syria.
The omnibus budget says on page 394:
SEC. 9011. Up to $500,000,000 of funds appropriated by this Act for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency in ‘‘Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide’’ may be used to provide assistance to the Government of Jordan to support the armed forces of Jordan and to enhance security along its borders.
Chuck and Nancy have some explaining to do!
