The deal coming out of congress seems very fair. Downvote away
Trump at SOTU:

quote:

This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall. It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down.


The Border Patrol, since the Obama Administration, has been asking for $1.8 billion for upgrades and extension of the existing border barriers. This deal will allocate $1.375 billion of that request. That will get them 55 miles of border barriers, or just five miles short of what President Trump last requested.

Fox now reporting it will not be fencing, but steel slats.

Take the deal, T. It gives you the slats you bragged about on twitter , and it about gives what the border patrol wants.

Border patrol needs 230 additional miles, not 55.

It also reduces detention space for ICE and he said this tonight.

quote:

"If we cut detention space, we are cutting loose dangerous criminals into our countries," said @POTUS, criticizing Democrats advocating a cap on border detention bed capacity. "I will never sign a bill that forces the mass release of criminals into this country," he said.


Kneecapping ICE is a nonstarter.

Dems dropped that proposal

the deal has enough flexibility to actually reach the president’s requested level of 52,000 beds

It's bull shite. Trump gave the Democrats their stupid omnibus bill. It's time the democrats start giving something back. The bare minimum is a joke

Take the deal, start construction, wait till the next time a child or cop is killed by an illegal (will happen) and then declare a state of emergency and secure the remaining funds.

Here is the thing: this is first round of negotiations

3 billion for slabs and 50,000 beds for ice is what the President needs to save face

Guys,


the President said he would compromise and allow the border patrol to set the parameters on new barriers and this comes close to their pre-existing request.

Take the deal

Can’t expect to get retail pricing when selling something at a pawn shop

Just read that the deal has 1.375 Bill for Wall and a new 1.7 Bill for new technology’s.

I can be ok with that. That’s 3 Bill total in country defense.

Wha the hell are you seeing?

This is from a WaPo reporter.

quote:

The agreement reached tonight would include:

-$1.375b for border barriers (55 new miles of bollard fencing)
-Dems drop call for new cap on ICE beds for detentions in interior
-Overall cap on detention beds drops from 49,057 to 40,520

Per congressional official.

Disagree with taking the deal.

Do nothing with the deal. No veto, no signing. Let it sit and rot in his desk drawer.

That will force the Dems to get off their asses and act in some meaningful way when he doesn't give them anything on it. They can't point and say he caved, they can't point and say we out negotiated him, they can't point and anything except spit and stutter.

55 miles seems well short of what was initially asked for. Why is that a win? BP deemed the 55 mikes as imminent to curb the crossers.

The only W is that DACA wasn’t even touched so there are no protections for them. We won on that MAGA

I may in the minority here, but what the heck is a steel slat going to stop exactly? Portable welding torches will inevitably be used and it will be like no border fence exists. Then we’re back to square 1.
