Gov’t Funding Deal Reportedly Reached, with SOME Border Wall Included

Not everyone is loving the deal, however…just ask Sean Hannity.

government shutdown

During the last few months, we as Americans experienced some extraordinary pieces of history.

For instance, we endured the longest government shutdown in the history of our mighty nation, ended only by President Donald Trump’s desire to put 800,000 Americans back to work.  That compromise bought the nation 21 days to reach a budget/border deal – a deadline that arrives again on Friday.

With Congress frantically scrambling to make some sort of deal happen, President Trump has been incredibly insistent upon the need for a border wall within this legislation.  If he doesn’t get it, he has hinted at using a National Emergency declaration to get it built.

New reports out of Washington DC today show hope of a budget deal having been reached, but with only a paltry portion of border wall included.

Three people familiar with Congress’ tentative border security deal tell The Associated Press that the accord would provide $1.375 billion to build 55 miles of new border barriers.

That’s well below the $5.7 billion President Donald Trump demanded to build over 200 miles of wall along the Mexican boundary. The money will be for vertical steel slats called bollards, not a solid wall.

Democrats dropped their proposal to limit the number of detained immigrants caught inside the U.S. to a daily average of 16,500. Republicans opposed that demand. There is currently no such limit.

Bargainers agreed to fund 40,520 beds to detain immigrants entering or in the U.S. illegally. That’s the same number funded last year, though the actual figure held is around 49,000.

The sources described details of the still-secret agreement only on condition of anonymity.

Television host Sean Hannity has already implored the GOP to reject the deal on the basis of the horribly light border security provided by it.

“By the way, on this new so-called compromise, getting details — $1.3 billion,” he said. “That’s not even a wall, a barrier? I’m going to tell this tonight, and we will get back into this tomorrow — any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain. Look at this crowd. Look at the country. Look at CBS News. Even they say 72 percent of the American people want the heroin to stop, the cartels to stop, the gang members to stop and those that wish us ill.”

The President still has several options left before Friday, and we expect to hear quite a bit of jawing about it in the coming hours.

PHOTOS: Democrat Lawmaker Simulates Assassination of Trump During Political Fundraiser

Imagine if the roles were reversed.

Why are Democrats still allowed to say they accept everyone? Even they know that that isn’t true. Unless you agree with the far-left 100% of the time, you’re not welcome to so much as give an opinion. Check out a Democrat state lawmaker simulating the assassination of President Trump during a recent fundraiser. Replace “Democrat” with Republican and “Trump” with Obama and imagine the outrage. A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture. https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162782536248057856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162782536248057856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F08%2Fpolitical-fundraiser-for-illinois-democrat-state-lawmaker-simulates-assassination-attempt-of-president-trump%2F Reactions: Now @DemsforIllinois responds: “The tragedies in El Paso and Gilroy have demonstrated how hate-filled political rhetoric can fuel violence.

It takes a very special person to be a member of Antifa – or a Democrat, in general. You literally have to hate your country while at the same time remain ignorant as to have good you have it here in the states. Quite the combo. Check out what some radical liberal goons were up to in Portland this past weekend… Antifa attacks people on a bus. They try to pull them out and hit them with a hammer. #PortlandProtests https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1162833952190582785?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162833952190582785&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F08%2F17%2Fantifail-antifa-protester-loses-fight-with-bus-plus-bonus-gif-another-tries-really-hard-to-tear-up-a-maga-hat%2F Check out what happens when one goofball chases after a bus… When the buses left, antifa chased it down and broke windows.

Remember this…?? From Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them. The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists. In a retelling of the events at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Biden describes the white nationalists as having…
