Trump’s State of the Union nailed the border wall and immigration in just 4 sentences – Washington Examiner

President Trump on Tuesday dedicated a large portion of his State of the Union address to the immigration issue. It was all good, but there were four sentences that drove home the message that matters the most, and an argument that Democrats will never be able to refute (should reporters confront them with it).

Trump said:

In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall — but the proper wall never got built. I will get it built.

This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall. It will be deployed in the areas identified by the border agents as having the greatest need, and these agents will tell you: where walls go up, illegal crossings go way, way down.

This covers everything the border barrier stands for, and Trump has never laid it out so succinctly. It’s the message I’ve been begging for, ever since my trip to the Rio Grande Valley sector of the Texas border, where there are more illegal crossings than any other sector.

Democrats may not listen, but at least all of America knows now the purpose of the border ” wall.”
