Fact Check: Did Democrats Ever Support A Border Wall?

President Donald Trump claimed that Democrats once supported fences and barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border during an Oval Office address on Tuesday evening.

According to congressional records, Trump is correct when he said elected House and Senate Democrats previously supported funding for barriers and fences at the southern border.

The Secure Fence Act of 2006, which authorized the construction of 700 miles of the same style of bollard fence that Trump is building at the border, was supported by 26 Senate Democrats at the time. In the House, 64 Democrats joined 219 Republican lawmakers to fund the border fencing.

Those Democrats in support of funding the bollard border fencing included:

  • Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)
  • Then-Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
  • Then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL)
  • Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
  • Then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE)
  • Then-Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)

All 54 Senate Democrats, in 2013, voted again to commit funding to secure 700 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border in the Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act — which was authored and introduced by Schumer.

In November 2018, there were close to 52,000 border crossings on the southern border, alone, marking the highest level of illegal immigration in the month of November since 2006.

In light of this evidence, how do you feel about the constant debate brought on by the Democrats to block funding for border wall?

    The Democrats are putting partisan politics ahead of national security along our southern boarder, and ahead of citizens including constituents and veterans, negatively effected by the partial government shutdown. President Trump walked out of his meeting today with democrat leadership because you can’t reason with unreasonable people.

      Oxymoron Alert: Nazi’s tend to be strongly Authoritarian; thus right-wing leaners. Commie’s on the other hand lean to the left; promoting; and make most if not all Economic decisions for the Nation’s people. They can be as ruthless as the Nazi’s as we saw under Stalin during WWII.

      Yet, while the left and right may have different goals and belief systems; both tend to use the same METHODS of COMPLIANCE: Ruthlessness!

      In my opinion; the World is turning Right; as we have witnessed with the rise of Fascist’s in U.S., the UK, France, Germany, Central America & in Iran & North Korea.

    RATHER THAN PRESIDENT TRUMP TALKING ABOUT THE BAD ELEMENTS IN THE CARAVANS, HE SHOULD OFFER:

    We, the citizens of the U.S.A., appreciate that non-citizens
    want to come here and I believe most want to better their lives and the
    lives of their families.

    That is admirable and consistent with human nature.

    We embrace those desires, but we will only give permission to enter this nation if
    a potential immigrant utilizes the proper applications and procedures.

    There are people from all over the world who are properly applying for the
    ability to enter.

    It is reprehensible, immoral, and unethical if we were to allow anyone to enter
    the U.S.A. without going through the same procedures as others are undergoing.

    Please be safe, go home and work to better your nations and if you still want to emigrate to the U.S.A., apply at the consulate in your home nation.

    The United States of America wants to be a good neighbor to all nations and as such will assist your nations for the goal of better conditions for their citizens.

    I, sincerely, thank you for your understanding.

    President Trump, please STOP talking about the criminals.
    When you do that, the default is that non-criminals can enter unimpeded; that is ridiculous and INSANE.

      For Pres. Trump to not do so is, legally-speaking, not doing his job of laws’-enforcement! WHICH CONSTITUTES THE IMPEACHABLE-CRIMES OF CRIMINAL INCOMPETENCE, CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE & RELATED HIGH CRIMES!!!

To portray all Latinos as criminals and terrorists is the logical fallacy of over generalization. Sounds very racists despite his protestations to the contrary.

Why don’t the Democrats take care of the people that is already here I want that already voted for them take care of them first said a word about the people across the border take care of the people here that need homes their children need clothes in that kind of thing take care of them.

    Not many people today would hold a Politician to a position they held 13 years ago. That was then – – this is now. Then; we apparently had Money as the two Bush – Cheney Wars were being fought; and, many people were fraught over the Fear of Terrorists coming in to the Country.

    Most Politicians during their careers find that they have to adjust their views to fit changing circumstances. Democrats are more flexible about that than are Republicans – – in my opinion. Conservatives sometimes lock-step – – linear thinkers and planners – – thus, less likely to make changes eve in the face of new data.

    Democrats approved fences, which I believe were built. The Democrats and most of the people do not approve the Wall that Trump wants as it would not be effective when there is no crisis except Trump himself. Democrats do want border security, but where they need it, Trump keeps saying drugs are pouring in and we need the fence to keep them out but we need more technology and security at the Ports of Entry as almost all the drugs come in there. There is no problems with how many people come in as the numbers are less than they have been in a long time. Trump says there are 4000 terrorist coming in at the border which is also a lie, they are being stopped at the airports, only 6 have tried to come in at the southern border. There is no crisis at the border except what Trump has caused with his inhumane and cruel treatment of innocent people coming for asylum legally. This country is in crisis and the only one to blame is mentally ill Trump who is hurting the people in many ways while he keeps making money from his position. He is a vile, evil monster that has to go before he causes more hideous actions against the people, the environment, relations with our allies, taking healthcare from millions, cutting or gutting SS that would kill many seniors, selling of public lands, ruining our country to profit himself and fossil fuel billionaires. Our country is in crisis as Trump ignores our Democracy and acts like a dictator. He is the worst president ever and I believe what he has done is treasonous and we need a way to remove corrupt con artists from our White House.

    President Trump needs to declare an emergency and get the military to build the wall! We already know democrats will be taking that to the 9th circuit court and when they declare Trumps order null and void (which lets face it, they will)! Then Trump can take it to the Supreme Court where it will probably be allowed! But since this will take time, he needs to get the process started! Those idiots Schumer and Pelosi will not give Trump the wall! If you haven’t contributed to the walls Go Fund Me Page, please do so! Every little bit helps!

    Why are Pelosi and Schumer are fighting for illegal immigrants and not Americans? They are the reason legal citizens are not getting paid right now. Trump said he’ll build a wall. He won the election which means this was knowledge that this could happen. Supporters want this to happen. Pelosi can start helping illegals apply for citizenship and pay their fees to apply. She can also help prevent the women from getting raped when trying to get here illegally. What about the women and children who are forced into slavery to pay off the debt of getting here? A wall is the best option right now until the governments of these countries improve the lives of their people.

    The entire problem is the Democrats. They do not like President Trump and will not support anything he wants to do for the American People, no matter what it is. If Hillary Clinton had been elected President and wanted 10 billion dollars for the same purpose it would have been approved and they would be building it already. The Democrats Blame President Trump for the shut down, They try to make him out to be the Villain when they really should step back and take a look in the Mirror. The Democrats also keep repeating that the American People don’t want the wall to be built, An Obvious out right Lie. If that were the case we would have never voted him into Office because Border Security and the wall was one of, if not his biggest Platforms. It’s Truly a Disgrace to Our Country that the Democrats can’t put aside their Petty differences and dislike of the President and work with him to better secure our Border something the Democrats already voted on and Approved in 2006, and again in 2013. I said it before and I’ll say it again let’s have a Nation wide Vote and Let the American People decide if we build a Wall, After all It’s Our tax Dollars that will build It. Of course We know that will never happen because the Democrats are afraid of the out come.

    It is entirely evident that if no criminal entered, then there would be ZERO discussion… your premise is insane- doing the same thing “for some decades” and expecting a different outcome- Einstein.

    The Democrats have driven themselves totally insane through their intense hatred for Donald Trump. Such obscene, irrational hatred never builds prosperous nations or productive, well adjusted citizens. The Socialist wing of the party displays alarming ignorance of history, economics and human nature. They would have us switch to Socialism, a form of government foreign to human nature, economically impossible, and with a 100% failure rate in world history in its pure form. Their leaders would rapidly change our government to a Communist dictatorship and bankrupt the world through outrageous taxes for global warming relief. Money flowing into politicians pockets will not fix the warming. And what about the evidence our planet is cooling? We cannot fix the world by opening our borders, Europe has proved that. We need to maintain our laws to keep order and prevent the violence and bloodshed which characterize the end of socialist societies. People who want to destroy America are funding rabble rousers to lie to desperate people by telling them they can and should storm the gates and lawlessly invade our nation. That’s why we need a wall, and the Democrats, who voted for border security in 2013, don’t want border security now because it’s Trump’s promise not theirs. They are out to destroy our President and obstruct everything he does. That’s treason. Check your Bible, Romans chapter 13: God puts rulers in place, to resist them is resisting God. It is evil.

The amount of money that President Trumps wants for the wall is peanuts compared to all the free handouts and aid that is given to most countries each year. The US bailed out Puerto Rico for instance…… why? They don’t even pay taxes to the US. The government always has their hands in my pocket, let me keep more of the money I earned so I can use it to put my two kids through college. I don’t get fee education or health insurance I have to pay to get it. What you have is what you earn.

    I would venture to say that we the people who vote do not have any idea just who or what these people really stand for. It is high time the politicians are held to their words and promises made during elections.

    My foreign born brother in law was one that desired a life in our country and a better life for his family. As such he obtained a visa for his wife and children and bought a business in Hawaii and got a visitors visa for himself and travelled back and forth between countries and stayed.in Hawaii with his family as often and long as was permitted My wife and I sponsored him and then began the wait. During this period his wife became pregnant with their third child and late in the pregnancy could no longer operate the bussiness. He applied for a hardship to hasten the process which had already taken 5 years plus and was refused. He was forced as a result to overstay his visitors visa by a few months to care for his wife and protect his life savings or risk losing both. He was penalized as a result and Immigration delayed his visa longer. He was forced to sell the business and return to his home permanently and wait. Finally after almost 9 years we were notified his visa to emigrate to the US had been approved and they had set a date for his entry, too little, too late, sadly my brother in law had contracted cancer and passed almost a year prior while awaiting his dream to be fulfilled.
    Ask me what I think of Democrats and their pet voters currently on the border.

    The bible says a house divided cannot stand. The dem are against anything President Trump is for. How long will God be patient with the United States? That 5.6 billion is only about 1 % of our budget. If the wall is built we will save that much and more the first year. The dems need to grow up and start working for this country instead of against it.
    Look back to 2011 – 2015 and ask yourself are we better off since President Trump went into office. As a whole he has done a lot of good for us and is trying to make America great again.
    This is my opinion and the opinion of a whole lot of East Texans.

    he wants a wall between Mexico and s Will US citizens work for cheap labor and do odd jobs , One time slaves brought from west Africa did the dirty jobs in US They helped to develop US economy like the Indians who were taken to Sri Lanka by British to work in Tea estates. They developed the Island’s economy. Similar situation is now in Mexican US Wall. Berlin wall was a failure. Only the China great wall is existing. Donald’s racist policy is not good for US . Today it is Mexican wall. Soon it will be Canadian wall

    Michael Zitterman I thought your post was well spoken and appreciate your comment, however I disagree with not talking about the crimes….drugs… sex trafficking and the murders committed here in the USA. With Democrats claiming that only the best come here and contribute to make America better, citizens would not approve of spending billions to protect the USA and it’s citizens.

    Perhaps you could send your comments to the President, but add the need of the barricades and boarder protection because of those undesirables infiltrating the caravans wanting to cause harm to you and American citizens.

    Thank you for listening to my opinion.

    The United States is over run with drugs being brought in because our borders are unprotected. People preach each and every day that we have to stop the epidemic that is ruining our communities and killing our child. Right now the runners are piling these killers into your neighbor for your kids to freely purchase. Read the newspapers coming through Texas and Arkansas. Read about the few that are caught, think of the many who are not driving out there right beside you. Carrying enough Kilos of cocaine pay to build the wall we so desperately need. We have needed it for years, it was voted for in 2006! 13 years ago. How much has the drug problems grown in your area i 13 years? Its not just the illegal immigrants coming in without using the proper procedure we have set up for others to go through! It is what comes through with them! As an example a Japanese Engineer coming to the United States will pay $6,000 to $10,000 to get their Visa’s. They will already have a good job waiting for them as soon as they are approved but it could take a six months to a year for final approval. Before they can entered the US they have physicals, shots, interviews, all types of things to protect themselves and others when they enter the US. What are the requirements of illegal Aliens before coming into our country?

    If they wanted to enter this country legally they would have used the proper channels. ICE needs to do unannounced inspections on the businesses that are hiring them and not paying them on the books. This has been a common practice in this country. We also need to stop providing them with all the welfare benefits just because they give birth in this country. No free programs would lessen the desire to be here.

    What has made this great nation able to endure the centuries of onslaught has been the resolve of
    God first and law and order. When Bill “slick willy” Clinton and his wife Hillary “Jezebel” Clinton came on the national scene was the beginning of the tragic downfall of the Democrat Party. Moreover, the result led to the election of a Kenya-born person Barrack Hussein Obummer who did more to break down this great Republic.
    If we kneel and ask Almighty God to restore our sovereignty HE will—He promised that. So, Obummer, Schumer, Pelosi, Feinstein, Booker, Harris etc etc etc.

    Declare a National Emergency, Build the WALL. When the Supreme Court once again declares DACA illegal introduce a bill to give permanent residency to those who are law abiding, working or in School. Ship the the others back. We don’t need more people on welfare. time to take care of American citizens who are homeless and stop taking in other Countries disgruntled.
    STOP TRYING to WORK WITH SCHUMER AND PELOSI! THEY WANT TO IMPEACH YOU. THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO SUCCEED!
    Appoint a special council to go after the deep state, from former FBI and Justice Dept. to Clinton and Mueller and his thugs.Sue to remove the Filibuster! It is Clearly Unconstitutional. Constitution clearly states a “Simple majority”in both houses is needed to pass all bills and approve nominations in the Senate. The exceptions are clearly stated i.e. Declaration of War, impeachment, etc.

    Logic is COMPLETELY with those who support border security WHICH INCLUDES A WALL. Only a fool OR someone driven by political expediency would ADVOCATE otherwise. Enough of the Tomfollery, start on these border improvements IMMEDIATELY. I’m a democrat — but won’t be one for long UNLESS Pelosi and Schumer get OFF the political bandwagon and get with the program!!!

    As an 81year old American retired serviceman I a appalled at the duplicity of the Democrats! They preach how bad the border security is and how important it is to secure the border while they are in power, but as soon as Trump was elected they immediately oppose any description of a border problem!
    This is more than disgusting, it borders on Treason! Aiding and abetting the enemy! They seem to think they are smarter than anyone else and the average American is ignorant or perhaps even “Deplorable “!
    Schumer and Pelosi need to get off their high horse and start acting like adults!

    Michael Zitterman very well said. I think president Trump wants to get through to Americans that there are problems. He want to point out to people he is not being mean or racist. Because he is not racist. I support the president 100 percent. He loves this country and it is time citizens dreams comes first. Borders do work. We all know George Soros is behind this problem and Obama running his shadow government. The way you said it in your post is the right thing to do. Legally. Simple.

    The Democrats aren’t blocking the wall because they think it is a bad idea but because they want to do everything that they can to keep President Trump from getting the job done in the best interest of America and the people. So far thy have opposed everything that he has done but they have not stopped him from getting the job done. I support President Trump in what he is doing for America and the people. America has needed a President like Trump for a long time and I thank God for selecting Trump to get the job done. Deuteronomy 8:17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. Verse 18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Jeremiah 27:5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.

    Simple: The one and only reason Democrats are fighting to stop the building of the wall is because President Trump is doing it, and thus showing the world the depths of hypocrisy of the Democrat party. The Democrats would rather cause the fall of our republic than to see President Trump succeed at anything. Disgusting.
