Nancy Pelosi says no to wall money

Democrats have announced their border security plan and it does not include funding for a border wall.

From AP:

Democrats are offering further details of their border security plan. They unveiled a measure Thursday that would not provide money for President Donald Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall and denying his request for additional border agents.

The move ignores Trump’s warnings that they’d be wasting their time if they don’t come up with wall money.

The Democratic measure, totaling almost $22 billion for U.S. Customs, the border patrol, and immigration agents, would significantly increase spending for scanners at ports of entry, humanitarian aid for apprehended migrants, and new aircraft to police the U.S.-Mexico border.

It would also freeze the number of border patrol agents and block any wall construction in wildlife refuges along the border. I would provide for hiring 1,000 additional customs agents.

President Trump responded by saying, “If they don’t give us a wall it doesn’t work. Without a wall, it doesn’t work.”

The Democrats have until Feb. 15th or else Trump has promised the government will shut down again or he will declare a national emergency.
