Democrats Approved $500 Million for Border Wall… In Middle East

In February 2016, Vice News reported that then-President Barack Obama helped the Middle Eastern country of Jordan with its construction of a border barrier to the tune of half a billion dollars.

Jordan wanted the wall to “stem the flow of refugees and also wall off the increasingly important (military) American base from the disintegration of Syria and Iraq,” the website reported.

Wait. A country wanted to help stop refugees from entering and Democrats were not only OK with that, but helped pay for it?

It gets even better. When the project began in 2008, the price tag was only $20 million.

That plan, at that time, was to “to erect a set of surveillance towers along a 30-mile (50 km) stretch of the border with Syria,” Vice News reported.

Since then it had grown, as had the cost and amount of funding provided by the United States.

Vice News wrote in 2016 that “since 2013 (the project) has refocused on detecting Islamic State fighters and arms smuggling, as well as refugees, on both sides of the border. When completed later this decade, the border wall will have a camera-studded high-security fence, plus a network of ground sensors and a set of fixed and mobile surveillance towers that will be able to see and detect activity five miles away on either side of the fence.”

So, the United States has funding for a border barrier for a foreign country. The United States has given additional funding to improve the border barrier and security system for a foreign country.

But the United States building a barrier and improving upon what is already there is “immmoral.” It is “ineffective.” At least, those are claims being made by Democrats.

The “wall” in Syria was 30 miles long. Thus, the 700 miles we need would require $350 billion. Getting it done for $5.7 billion would be a bargain!

Trump should pack the illegals on his jet and export them to Israel. Give them a crack at that wall.

I bet that some of those Democrats who voted for that bill are still in the House. Yep, the leadership has told their members how to behave and it is happening.

Nice shot, leaner, but I think you may have missed the fact in that original post, that those Dems voted to build a wall somewhere else but just can't see doing it with the taxpayers of the US for the US. Open your eyes, left leaner.
