PELOSI SAYS WALL IS AN 'IMMORALITY'

The wall is not about morals, or money. It's about a temper tantrum by Democrats who do not want Trump to get his way. 

What immoral principles that Nancy Pelosi says are we violating? Though Nancy Pelosi represents San Francisco and idiots environs, she has said a lot of dumb things*; this is off the top. 

Immorality: "The state of quality of being immoral, wickedness." Her use of the word doesn't even fit the dictionary definition. It's all politics. Sadly, many will believe her, especially her lunatic base in San Francisco.

Walls are immoral, but only because Trump wants
The world's earliest known civilization was also one of the first to build a defensive wall. During the 21st century B.C., the ancient Sumerian rulers Shulgi and Shu-Sin constructed a massive fortified barrier to keep out the Amorites, a group of nomadic tribesmen who had been making incursions into Mesopotamia (1). Let's name a few others: Great Wall of China, the Alamo, fences around the average American home (and not just American; get out and visit the world), so they must serve some "immoral" purpose. Thousands, if not millions more. 

The Washington Times: Why should the U.S. build a better wall on the southern border? House Majority Whip Steve Scalise offered a clear and candid rationale during a Fox News appearance this week, telling host Mark Levin that 10 known terrorists are captured each day trying to breach the border. U.S. Customs and Border Protections also informed Congress that 3,029 people were apprehended in one day this month — deeming the occurrence a crisis. And yet, Pelosi said on Jan 5, 2019 is reported to have said: During the White House border-security meeting on Wednesday, Homeland Security Secretary Kirsten Nielsen presented a report on current conditions at the southern border. New Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Nielsen, “I reject your facts.” To which Nielsen responded, “These are not my facts. These are the facts.”

Fox News’ Lukas Mikelionis said the statistic that pushed Pelosi over the edge was, “border officials along the U.S.-Mexico border had apprehended about 3,000 people with terrorist ties and 17,000 criminals last year.”'

When I envision Nancy Pelosi’s strong reaction to hearing about what is the reality of the situation, I picture her as the Wicked Witch of the West in “The Wizard of Oz” in the scene where Dorothy throws water on her and she shrieks, “I’m melting. Ahhhhh.” I suppose she has to do this. The Democrats must maintain their denial in order to justify their opposition to the wall.

Pelosi added, “The crisis is not going away -- it is getting worse. The status quo in funding & authorities for #DHS is irresponsible & makes our country less secure. Kicking the can down the road is not the answer. I look forward to engaging with Members who want to.”

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) also attended the meeting and later told Bloomberg that Nielsen’s presentation was not credible. He said, “It was preposterous. At a time when we have the lowest level of apprehensions at the border — stopping people from coming in illegally — the lowest level historically, she is saying that we have all these terrorists and criminals and all these people on their way in.”
