After another week of refusing to negotiate to secure the border, Democrats just packed up their bags and headed home.
Two things have been made clear over the past 21 days:
- The American people understand there is a humanitarian and national security crisis at the southern border – and they demand border security.
- Democrats are the party of “no.” They’re unwilling to even negotiate physical barriers being part of any effort to secure the border and protect American citizens.
That second point is especially striking since many of the same Democrats obsessed with telling the President “no” have previously voted for border walls and fencing…
Where things stand: If Democrats were serious about securing the border and stopping the flow of dangerous criminals and drugs, they would stay and negotiate with Republicans. Instead, the party of no is ignoring this crisis and leaving town.
