Just put this here for safe keeping
WASHINGTON – It’s a simple question: You supported the border wall in 2006, so why not now?
Six key Democrats have entirely flip-flopped on the issue and the mainstream media have not bothered to ask them why.
WND asked each of them and did not receive a single response.
Six current Democratic U.S. senators, including the party’s top leadership, all voted for the
Secure Fence Act Of 2006, the very law President Trump is now using as lawful authorization to build a wall on the country’s border with Mexico.
Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.
Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.
Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.
Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del.
Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.
Not only do they all oppose the wall now, they are vowing to stop a Republican bill in the works to fund its construction.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif
As the Republicans have 52 seats in the Senate, they need 8 Democrats to vote for funding the wall in order to avoid a filibuster.
If such influential Democratic leaders as Schumer, Feinstein, Wyden and Nelson were to support the wall now, as they did a decade ago, a successful filibuster would seem unlikely and the wall would be funded.
Feinstein said in 2006: “Democrats are solidly behind controlling the border, and we support the border fence.”
But something drastic happened since 2006, whether it was a change of heart or change in politics.
Schumer said in November: “We’re not going to help him (Trump) build his wall. We have a comprehensive immigration-reform bill that builds in much tougher border security and it had bipartisan support than he’s ever called for.”
On Wednesday, Wyden said: “The bottom line here is this is another divisive policy and it’s another polarizing policy.”

This gofundme stuff just goes to show that we don't need government. If people want something done (walls, roads, whatever etc) , they will get behind it and get it done. No government needed.
They live, We sleep
Well the border wall is 18 million on go fund me second highest donated amount in its history interesting
@Kirkland Laing did u vote for this lady
I will say it's a bit screwball watching all the outcry about refunds being held up when some of us *cough..have had them stolen over the last couple of years because of some "shared responsibility" penalty BS from mandated healthcare.
If you don't like living in a country with a relatively effective government and would prefer a libertarian paradise with no government, taxes or regulation they do actually exist. I understand Somalia still has some nice beaches that haven't yet been used by modern day pirates to dump shiploads of toxic waste that no other country will accept. The rest of the country may not be as nice though. You may need to spend some of the money you pay in taxes on weapons and so on.
She seems like a nice girl. If I lived in Michigan or wherever she's from I would have voted for her as part of the Democratic party's historical popular vote margin win last year, yes.
By the way , that secure fence act thing? Would have built a couple of hundred miles of a fence you can easily get over and supplied a few more bodies to police a border that neither side actually wants to stop immigrants coming over. It also would have legalised all the illegal immigrants currently in the country, given them a path to citizenship and so on. Ther ehave been a whole bunch of immigration deals done between the parties over the past couple of decades but they're always blown up by the Rush Limbaugh wing of the GOP. Same with this recent budget deal that Trump was going to sign until they blew it up. Trump is just too weak to stand up to the loonies in his own party.
