President Donald Trump has been experiencing a lot of opposition from liberals regarding the intended wall along the United States – Mexico border.
This wall serves more than a superficial purpose. It is meant to protect the citizens from a lot of nasty drug-related crime that occurs south of the border.
There is a lot of concern related to the Mexican drug routes that supply the United States with heroin and other drugs.
President Trump took to Twitter to voice his concerns. He brought up the notorious MS-13 gang, which is responsible for several gruesome deaths in the United States.

Democrats are doing their best to cut funding from the wall in Congress, so this will make it all the more difficult to keep our southern border safe.
The Mexican government and many prominent Mexican leaders say they won’t pay for the wall, but the U.S. government has many means to extracting indirect payments, such as taxing illegal-aliens’ money sent via banking systems to relatives in Mexico. Another form of indirect payment is a reduction of Mexican aliens living in the United States, whose departure would reduce U.S. payments to families in Mexico and would also increase wages for Americans. Democrats leaders are determined to stop the wall because it would symbolically and literally interdict the flow of cheap workers, welfare-aided consumers, and apartment renters in the Democratic-dominated upmarket cities on the coastlines. GOP leaders are not fighting for Trump’s wall, partly because their donors and local supports also want the cheap-labor inflow.
Democratic leaders are playing the role of victim in press conferences, and argue that Trump’s successful campaign promise to build a wall is actually a political “stunt” and a reckless “poison pill” which threatens to shut down government amid bipartisan budget negotiations. “The Democrats in the House and the Senate are ready to work and cooperate with the White House to keep the government open,” Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.
