The Truth About the Wall

Submitted by RICHARD MACDOUGAL

When you hear Dems and some Rhinos speak out against Trump’s plan to build a wall along the southern border with Mexico, consider the following history lesson.

Critics want you to think and believe that President Trump is racist and against Mexicans and other aliens to our country. As a matter of fact, they don’t even like using terms like aliens or the direct word Mexicans; they think that is racist, also.

Did you know there was a vote in Congress in 2006 regarding securing our southern border with a wall? It was called H.R. 6061 (109th): Secure Fence Act of 2006. Just a mere short 11 years ago.

On October 26, 2006, President George W. Bush signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006 (Pub.L. 109–367) into law stating, “This bill will protect the American people. This bill will make our borders more secure. It is an important step toward immigration reform.”

The bill was introduced on Sep. 13, 2006 by Peter T. King (R-NY). In the House of Representatives, the Fence Act passed 283–138 on September 14, 2006. On September 29, 2006 – the Fence Act passed in the Senate 80–19.

Congress: 109th Congress
Date: Sep 29, 2006
Result: Bill Passed
In the Senate, Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell and John McCain voted for the bill.

We’ve seen how the current Congress, especially the Senate has dwelt with healthcare reform legislation, and now tax reform legislation is up next. Wonder what has changed?
