Trump Backs Down?

White House asks Congress for $5.7 billion for ‘steel barrier’

President Donald Trump backs down from insisting on a concrete border wall, while again saying he may declare ‘a national emergency.’

The White House on Sunday officially asked Congress for $5.7 billion to build a “steel barrier,” confirming that President Donald Trump was backing down from his call for a concrete wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The request, made against the backdrop of a partial government shutdown that has entered its third week, comes as Trump is also considering whether to go around Congress and declare a national emergency in order to construct his proposed wall

“A physical barrier — wall — creates an enduring capability that helps field personnel stop, slow down, and/or contain illegal entries,” Russ Vought, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, wrote in letters sent on Sunday to the House Appropriations Committee chairwoman, Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), and its ranking member, Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas).

Just hours earlier, the president had again threatened to declare a national emergency as a means for construction, even while saying that he would first gauge the results of upcoming negotiations to end the shutdown, which was triggered by partisan debate over his signature campaign promise.

“I may decide a national emergency depending on what happens over the next few days,” Trump told reporters as he exited the White House en route to Camp David, according to a pool report.

“We have to build the wall or we have to build the barrier. The barrier or the wall can be of steel instead of concrete if that works better,” the president said.

      The Southern border has been a threat to our national security for years. You, Mr President, are the first to get truly serious about fixing the problem. We, as a nation, need to get it done. There other issues of importance that need to be dealt with. Along with national security, and Islam.

      WHAT A CROCK.
      For months Trump claimed that Mexico would pay for a wall
      ( without bothering to check with Mexico ).
      Now he is demanding that Americans pay for it…
      and BLACKMAILING thousands of people by shutting down the
      Government… and their incomes.
      I am not a Democrat, but I will support his impeachment…
      preferably before people begin ending up living on the street.

      The border patrol and other immigration agents say they prefer a steel slat wall so they can see what is happening on the other side and I tend to agree with them. With a concrete wall they could dig a tunnel right up against it and attempt to tunnel under. With a steel slat wall you can see what is happening and if they try and tunnel they will have to start their dig a long way back and risk a greater possibility of being spotted by the use of drones or cameras as they are getting the dirt out. The top of the wall is going to be a very important part of counter climbing over. I would say razor wire on both sides and the top with the inside being far enough down that it wouldn’t be reachable by laying on the top of the wall to prevent cutting it. And maybe have a catch net below that.

    First of all the president didn’t back down! The border patrol has asked for a wall that they can see through from the beginning! Trump is trying his level best to get funding for a steel slatted wall that can be seen through, that can NOT be climbed over, that can’t be tunneled under! Made out of steel which is far better than concrete that will eventually crumble over time and concrete can’t be seen through! Concrete can be tunneled under and climbed over! So NO Trump has NOT backed down he’s reinforced his stance on border security and what needs to be done by listening to the experts on the border!

    A “wall” can be made of many things. Concrete may be the least common. As I remember DHS put on a call for proposals and numerous prototypes were installed somewhere in the Southwest. None, as I remember the pictures , was a simple, poured concrete wall. No matter what finally gets built the Dems will says it is not the wall he promised his base (when they are talking to their base). A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

    When I worked part-time as a security guard years ago some of the companies were installing electric wire fences. Maybe that is what we need. If these illegal characters insist on coming across the border they may be in for a little shock. And it would be all their own doing. Nobody told them to touch the fence. Zap, zap, zap!!

The Republicans are no longer Republicans…they have become wimpy Democrats while the Democrats have become socialists. Many great countries fell because of corruptness, might not be long before America does the same.

They are all non-americans and if they do not like how our country was founded and run they should leave and go live in a socialist country and see how long they survive. True Americans love this country and loves what our men and women fought for and are still fighting for. Take these anti-americans and put them on trial for teason.

I would rather have a steel wall than concrete any day. Mexico will not write a check to build the wall but through the trade negotiations that Trump has done and will do, the savings through these trade deals will pay for the wall. The demoncrats are digging themselves deeper and deeper every time they pull one of their stupid stunts. Keep it up Pelosi and Schumer. Your your own worst enemy.

    With the current “open borders” chaos, criminal deportees can simply turn around and walk back in. Witness the many illegal alien killers who have been deported MANY TIMES. Without a propper, defended wall “deportation” is just a laughable revolving door. The open borders Marxist Democrats KNOW this and yet they obstruct the wall. No matter what they say(and lie) they are against border security and therfore against national security. If the rest of America does not stand up to, and STOP, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats, it will result in surrendering the country and the changing demographics will put the Marxist De mocrats in power, concievably forever. Time is getting short and this might be our last chance to make a stand, especially since so many people in the country STILL vote Democrat.

    Walls don’t keep out anyone or anything. China’s great wall didn’t keep out the Japanese during WW2. The wall in Berlin didn’t keep people from escaping to the west. The walls of Jerico failed as does the steel fence around the White House. It’s been breached multiple times over years. We need to increase Border Patrol Agents install more electronic surveillance equipment and ground patrols. Equipment to detect tunnels and dogs to sniff out drugs in cars trucks and shipping containers. That’s how drugs are entering our country not at Mexico’s border but at ports in Florida ,New York , New Orleans, and in our western cities. Maybe we need a wall on Canada’s border that’s how terrorists have crossed our borders. Trump’s plan is as moronic as he is and Congress needs to stop this nonsense now.

This is truly political, I thought deploying Active duty military to the border, for no good purpose, but simply in an attempt to win the midterms was enough. I now see that the president will stoop to any means to win. It’s too bad some Americans are so divided they fail to see the truth, but then this president hasn’t provided much if any truth in anything that he says. I am an Independent and just believe Americans deserve better than this….a wall, maybe not a wall, maybe a fence, maybe a metaphor, who knows. how about open the gov’t and then figure out what’s being negotiated, and the true cost to the people

    I don’t consider fence instead of a wall backing down. Whichever as long as it’s a good barrier.

    I’d like the government reopened soon. It looks like the House won’t approve the wall, so I think Trump should do an agreement soon and build the wall as a national emergency.

    Declare it a national security emergency and tell the Democrats they don’t have the power to overturn an emergency security order and if they wish to take it to the supreme court let them for they will lose for a fact!!! For it is the President’s job to protect our country and our borders, and it is also the Congress and Senates job to do the same no ifs and or buts about it and it is in our Constitution as well that the president has the power to do whatever it takes to keep our country and citizens safe!!! If the Democrats try to reject the facts then they will really have a hard time proving otherwise, and our Supreme Court Justices will hopefully make them understand that fact!!! So the Democrats will lose their cash cow for getting votes and all the money that they collect from the cartels will also be gown!!!

    I say, build the wall! We cannot allow an uncontrolled invasion of the USA. There are methods of immigrating to this country, legal methods. If you want to come to America, comply with the legal requirements to come here. Otherwise, stay where you belong. Those who storm our border in caravans such as the one on our Southern Border, are invaders. The USA has all it can handle taking care of its own people. In fact, far too many times those from other nations receive benefits that are not available even to citizens of this country. In my county, someone here was getting government monetary allowances for two children she had (no husband), plus she was getting $900+ every month for herself and her two children, all government aid. A citizen of the USA could not get that kind of education subsidy or support. That’s just wrong!

    I’m sorry — I wrote a comment earlier, and forgot to post my name. Yes, we definitely need the wall or a steel barrier, whatever it takes to prevent thousands of illegal aliens, many of whom are criminals, from entering this country. I’ve seen hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens enter this country, and it’s time to put a stop to it. If Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want a wall around her house, that’s fine — she doesn’t have to, but this country doesn’t belong to Pelosi, it belongs to all of the citizens of the USA. Somehow, we have to stop this never-ending flow of illegal aliens from entering our country, particularly on our Southern Border. So, I say, build the darn wall or whatever barrier. It’s desperately needed.

    The same people who are now fighting the wall were a few years ago preaching how bad we need a wall to stop illegal immigration so it doesn’t take much to see they now just want to assure getting the votes they want for power. Problem is we the people are fed up with their whole program and it will lead to a war no one really wants or needs. The next civil war won’t be muskets and single load arms. It will include high powered arms and the suffering will be much higher than we could ever imagine. If God allows things to go that far this country could end up in far worse shape than it is now.

    Build the wall concrete where the terrain allows it which is primarily flat. Steel sections where terrain demands custom fitting, steep sloped. Use the military Corps of Engineers to decide what should go where. They are experts. Declare a state of national emergency, because it is.
    And the Dems ignoring our national emergency proves they cannot be trusted to govern and protect America.

    The WORKERS for border security told him a SEE THROUGH barrier would be a much BETTER system (they could see what is going on, on the other side!)

    He LISTENED to the people who would be WORKING there, as he SHOULD have!!

    When informed a steel barrier would be STRONGER than a concrete wall, he decided to go with the BETTER barrier!!

    I as an Australian immigrant came here and was admitted into your country the right and legal way starting with my green card and going on from there. I as a retired Engineer still needed to be self funded and not rely on the goodwill of the American population to fund my existence and amongst other things my medical coverage which starting off at 78 was very expensive as i never had worked here to get quarters necessary to get automatic rights to coverage of all of life`s necessary`s here. I fully respect what President Trump is doing to safe guard our country and direct any likely immigrants who wish to reside in this great country to do it legally, get an honest job and pay your taxes legally ,not have a dishonest job whilst not paying your taxes and doing your businesses all tax free on the black market. So all you Americans who are against these proposals ,think positively and have the gall to help do what`s entirely best for your country.LET THE DECENT PEOPLE IN LEGALLY AND STOP ALL THE ILLEGALS,FAMILIES AND DRUG RUNNERS AND ANY UNFORESEEN PEOPLES WHO DON`T WISH TO CONFORM TO WHAT`S REQUIRED HERE.

    So President Trump originally wanted a SOLID CONCRETE wall

    When informed by CBP that a see through barrier would be better, he LISTENED to those who would be working with whatever barrier is built!!

    It does make more sense to be able to monitor whats happening on the other side of the barrier.

    So what’s wrong with the President LISTENING to those who will be working with the new barrier, for DECADES to come?!?!?!

    I see NOTHING wrong with the President changing his mind to a BETTER physical barrier!!

    Who will PAY for the wall? Eventually mexico will by keeping their CRIMINALS on THEIR side of the border and by not having our tax dollars sent to support their families on OUR money. They will have to support their own people.

    We could also tax ANY/ALL money transfers in to mexico. Just because mexico will not be “WRITING A CHECK” to pay for the wall, doesn’t mean mexico isn’t paying for it!!

    And it is NOT TRUMPS WALL. it is THE CITIZENS (of the U. S.) WALL!!

    President Trump never backed down he was just giving another option and our President Trump is going to make the best deal for the American people. Concrete is expensive and Steel is probably cheaper and can be made as tough as we need it. Also a steel wall/barrier can be electrified if need be. Border Patrol has made it known that it would be nice to be able to see through the barrier to see the enemy or any signs of trouble with the naked eye although we will have more ways of watching over the barrier via drones and satellite.
    So I don’t see that the President has backed down from anything just a new more economical way of guarding our southern border.

    President Trump please build the wall, and make the Democrats pay for it. They have been stating we need a wall to keep the illegals out but they never keep their promises because all they are is talk. Once the get elected, they start filling their pockets with dirty money by whoever bought them. We need to get term limits on all representatives so that they are not still in office when they are 100 years old. I think Congress needs to get paid what the American people earn and their retirement should be social security and a 401K and also the same healthcare that the America people are on. They can get Medicare and find a supplement that will work for them. But they won’t because they have put themselves on a pedestal and think they are better than the American people.

    Mr. President, do what is necessary to get us a wall. This can be paid for by the savings we get from our tax money that we spend on illegals at this time. What ever you do is beneficial to all Republicans and Democrats alike. We can’t have open borders, under any circumstance. This will only add to problems we already have. Those in Congress have been elected by the people to protect our Country and not the Countries of the world. They should have to abide by the laws that they make us abide to. You would have less laws on the books. You are doing a great job and it’s appreciated. With the problems made by the Democrats, primarily, I realize that you have a big problem trying to make America Great. In my opinion 2020 is yours to continue.

    Wall/Barrier sounds good politically or to narrow thinkers. Wall is expensive and will stop immigrants about like a brick will stop a path of ants. If you want to slow the inflow, you agressively investigate, prosecute and penalize employers who knowingly and intentionally hire them. Yes, including the Catholic church and affiliates. Quicker, cheaper and more effective. Wall, big waste of resources

    STEEL OR CONCRETE ?? Makes no difference to me! If it’s concrete it will most likely have steel reinforcing bars or steel cable to strengthen it or it won’t last. If it’s steel it will probably be set in a concrete footing to hold it up straight. So they are arguing about $**t they know nothing about. I have worked in cement construction and precast cement erection business. People arguing this difference are either stone stupid or just trying to confuse others or drag this out indefinitely!!

    Do we really need to spend $5 billion for 200 Miles of a wall. That’s $25 Million a mile. This is totally ridiculous. A barrier to stop vehicles has already been placed along the border. Why not use manpower, by increasing the border patrol, and 21st Century technology, like drones and satellites, to protect our border. At least a good amount of money would give thousands of Americans good paying jobs that will last. Then maybe our government could start rebuilding the bridges and dams that are beginning to deteriorate after decades of use.
