    Default There is no "wall" in the border security deal

    Rep. David Price (D-NC) joined Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss the just-announced agreement of the conference committee meeting to appropriate funds for Homeland Security. As Price explained, there is a deal, and the deal actually includes less money for the border wall than he would have had if they had passed a continuing resolution based on current funding levels.

    "There is funding for a wall of this deal but it is a something considerably less than the concrete barrier that [Trump] was talking about and it is far less than the funding in any of the alternatives that we were dealing with," Price explained. "The number is less than the two billion that would be available, a good deal less than the 2 billion that would be available if we passed a continuing resolution for the rest of the year and many billions less than what Trump shut down the government over."

    Price pointed out there are already a lot of fences on the border, that crossings are at a 40-year low, and the issue right now is people turning themselves in and requesting asylum.

    There are some other indicators suggesting that Trump actually will sign this, in spite of his interview with Laura Ingraham taking place directly after his El Paso rally.

    We've gone from "build the wall" to "finish the wall," as if said wall has been built in the past two years. While it's true, as Rep. Price noted, that there are fences and barriers built already, the fact is that this deal looks a lot like the one Trump shut down the government over on December 21st.

    Stay tuned. It's still got to get through Congress and Trump's signature. If he signs it and then declares an emergency, it'll go to court.

    You are such an idiot! Why do you constantly talk out your ass?

    The tentative deal includes $1.375 billion for physical barriers — a type of fencing that resembles the “steel slats” that Trump has specifically called for, according to a congressional aide briefed on the talks. It includes a total of 55 miles, which is just 9 miles shy of Trump’s last budget request.

    Trump isn't our 45th American president; he's our 1st Russian one.

    McConnell Sounds Positive On Funding Deal, Calls Compromise 'Good News'


    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a key player in the border negotiations, sounded upbeat about the bipartisan compromise brokered Monday night, calling it “certainly good news.”

    “I know I speak for members on both sides of the aisle when I say we are grateful to our colleagues on the appropriations committee for their leadership,” McConnell said Tuesday on the Senate floor. “We’re eager to see them complete this work.”

    “As we speak, our colleagues are working hard to produce a legislative text,” he continued. “I look forward to reviewing the full text as soon as possible and hope the Senate can act on this legislation in short order.”






    McConnell saying that he hopes the Senate can act on the legislation is significant: during the shutdown, he refused to bring legislation to the floor unless Trump would definitely sign it.

    Maybe Trump can get Putin to pay for his Wall?
