President Trump has alluded to building a wall along the border of Mexico for since he was campaigning to be president back in 2016. The Democrats have agreed to spend as much as $1.6 billion. The Trump administration is stern and will not quit until they congress approved $5 billion to build his wall.
Trump is ready to shut down the government really soon if he doesn’t get $5 billion and not a penny less. Republicans are planning to meet with the president to discuss possible resolutions.
I don’t think there will be a government shut down, but with Trump, I don’t totally rule it out completely. Once upon a time, I heard the estimated cost to build this wall would be in the range of $10 to 12 billion. I wonder how they came to the cost-efficient $5 billion now?
I think to have to be blind to think illegal immigration is not a problem right now. The biggest divide is how the issue is approached. For the record I am not against building a wall, I just don’t want the fellow taxpayers to pay for all of it.
