Chuck Schumer and Washington’s Democratic Senators, Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, have done it again.

They have put illegal immigrants and partisan politics ahead of the welfare of their constituents. They won’t reach across the aisle and work with Republicans to secure our southern border. They refuse to spend any money to build a wall along our border with Mexico, and instead say we should rely on drones and other technology to secure that border. A wall doesn’t work they say.

If walls are so ineffective, why are they used in gated communities, individual estates or the Vatican? Relying on drones in place of a wall to protect our border is like using video surveillance to protect your house when it has no doors or even walls. Electronic surveillance is a good addition to, but not a replacement for, a physical barrier to keep the bad guys out.

Democrats have such a strong desire to not give President Trump a “victory” that they are willing to endanger the constituents they claim to represent.
