President Trump is Right. The Border Wall Is Worth the Shutdown

He should keep the government shut down until the Democrats compromise or the GOP exposes itself as weak on the issue

Arguably, the President should have taken the deal last year to get $5 billion for the wall in exchange for a DACA…

Securing the border, like defunding Planned Parenthood, is one of those issues that Republicans have long campaigned on, but failed to deliver on. But, unlike defunding Planned Parenthood, Democrats have also supported securing the border, including with a wall, in the past. Multiple Congresses have funded parts of the wall, studies on the wall, or authorized construction even if not the money to go with the authorization.
