Polizette: Americans ‘Deserve Protection’ That the Border Wall Will Provide, Bossie Says

Americans “deserve protection” from the threats illegal immigration pose to the nation — and they deserve the protection that a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border can provide, former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said Thursday night on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

President Donald Trump campaigned heavily on his now-iconic pledge to build a border wall.

Although Republicans held majorities in both the House and the Senate for the first two years of Trump’s presidency, lawmakers could not reach an agreement on funding the border wall — and punted on the issue.

Now that Democrats again have a majority in the House, the $5 billion in border wall funding that Trump is demanding will become even more difficult to attain as both parties struggle to reopen the government after the partial shutdown.

Although Trump and GOP lawmakers showed a willingness to lower the $5 billion request in a compromise, newly minted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) still are refusing to budge on providing a cent of border wall funding.

After reclaiming the House gavel, Pelosi and the new Democratic majority passed a spending bill on Thursday to end the partial government shutdown that failed to include any funding for the wall.

Bossie argued Thursday night against Chris Hahn, a former Democratic aide to Schumer, about what constitutes border security and why the wall is needed to secure the border.
