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

By Kara Pendleton, Western Journal, January 9, 2019:

As the government shutdown continues with the battle over border wall funding not yet resolved, the left’s hypocrisy on the issue continues to be revealed.

One example of this, of course, is that the Democrats have previously approved higher amounts of spending on a barrier of some form along the southern U.S. border.

Now, we have yet another example of how Democratic objections to funding the wall look more like a temper tantrum than an actual, legitimate concern.

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.Completing this poll entitles you to Conservative Tribune news updates free of charge. You may opt out at anytime. You also agree to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

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.

They are wrong and have been proven as such. Even the Border Patrol union has stated that walls are proving effective, where in place, along the United States southern border.

Schumer and Pelosi: Walls don't work

But wait, there’s more!

The March 2018 omnibus spending bill spells out spending authorization for up to $500 million to Jordan for its border barrier and security on page 394. That same bill only allowed for 33 miles of fencing along the Texas border with Mexico.

Both now-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, both Democrats, voted “yea” on it. They both have been outspoken critics of funding for our southern border wall, as proposed by President Donald Trump.

Every member of Congress has a constitutional duty to “provide for the common defense” of the United States. The funding of such falls under their purview.

In addition, they are elected by and paid by the American public, whom they are to serve.

So, how does funding a foreign country’s border barrier but not our own get passed off as the moral high ground?

Democrats in Congress are not doing their job. And they are putting the security of foreign nationals and foreign nations — as well as partisan politics — ahead of the security of and United States and her people.
