Mr. President: "Build up this wall."
By Victor Sharpe

On Friday, June 12th, 1987, President Reagan visited West Berlin.

Standing upon a platform overlooking the wall, which the Soviets had built to keep East Germans from escaping to freedom in the West, President Reagan chose to utter words that electrified the world. Addressing Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, he said: Mr. President, "Tear down this Wall."

Here was a wall which, since 1951, had kept hapless souls from escaping Soviet occupied East Germany. But today there is an urgent need to build up a wall on America's southern border – not to keep people in but to keep trespassers, drug traffickers, dangerous terrorists and violent gang members from illegally infiltrating into the United States of America.

President Trump has outlined the danger that stalks the southern border and imperils America's very sovereignty as an independent nation state. He has praised the border agents who hourly face violence from brutal criminals as they repeatedly and illegally cross the unprotected border. But this alarming fact does not phase the likes of Pelosi and Schumer or of the growing extremists within the ranks of the Democrat party. The Democrats simply will not work with President Trump and they are willing to ignore the humanitarian and national security crisis that exists and grows daily.

President Trump has stressed again and again the towering need for a wall on the southern border to prevent a tide of illegal aliens from imperiling U.S. sovereignty and bringing with it misery, violence and death.

The Democrats remain willingly blind to the horrendous flow of illegal drugs coming through the southern border. They remain blind and deaf to the human agonies from drug overdoses that are killing hundreds of American citizens every week. They are not concerned about such matters. They are solely engaged in politics and their protestations of being the party of compassion are as real as dream stuff.

Vast quantities of meths, heroin, fentanyl and cocaine flood across the porous southern border resulting in as many as 300 deaths a week from heroin alone. Yet the Democrats remain obstinantly blind to such horrors, thus invoking that old saying: "There's none so blind as those who will not see!"

In 2017, some 20,000 migrant children were brought into the United States, more often than not with unspeakable brutality by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. A third of the women in the caravans of despair making their through Mexico to our southern border are sexually assaulted. In the last two years, ICE officers have confirmed arrests of criminal aliens numbering well over a quarter of a million – and the flood grows ever larger.

In his recent address to the nation, President Trump summed up what is desperately needed. He said, "Now is the time – this is the moment – to finally secure the border and create the lawful and safe immigration system Americans, and those wanting to become Americans, deserve."

So what could the Democrats possible object to?

Well their obstinacy could be simply summed up as Democrat sheer bloody mindedness. Their refusal to negotiate is due to only one thing as Rush Limbaugh has repeatedly pointed out: the Democrats hate President Trump.

They do so with a viciousness that drips vitriol and they will never accept him in office. That being the case, we must urge the President to hold firm and not give away one inch to a party that has become so extreme and so willing to inflict immense harm upon the United States of America.

A nation of laws must have the ability to enforce its laws, especially regarding immigration, but the Democrats want us to ignore our laws in favor of their radical and socialist policies. That must not ever be allowed to stand, for in their assault upon the Constitution and their malignant desire to transform America lies ruin and the end of American sovereignty and independence.

Even Majority Leader McConnell, not one to be exactly known as a Conservative firebrand, nevertheless said this after hearing the President's TV address:

"Tonight, President Trump reaffirmed his commitment to addressing the humanitarian and security crisis at our nation's southern border. His proposal to increase security through physical barriers suits the reality on the ground. It's what career Border Patrol experts support and are asking for."

McConnell also tellingly added that: "It simply builds on earlier legislation that Senate Democrats like then-Senator Obama, then-Senator Clinton, and Senator Schumer previously supported with enthusiasm." In other words, the Democrats have called in the past for secure physical barriers on the southern border, but now they rail against it and refuse to help pay for it because it is President Trump who will build it.

This is the same Democrat party that now cynically elevates to a leading foreign affairs committee the Muslim immigrant from Somalia, Minnesota Democrat, Rep. Ilhan Omar, who reeks of anti-Semitic bile. She is among a group of recently elected members of Congress touted as the new "progressive" face of the Democratic party.

What binds these Democrats together is their hateful opposition to Israel, our only loyal ally in the Middle East. This is a key policy position for these outrageously biased and bigoted lawmakers. Speaker Pelosi, to her undying shame, knows full well who and what these people are and yet she remains mute without a word of censure.

Among Omar's colleagues is Palestinian-American, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who was caught on video this month vowing to "impeach the motherf***er," with regard to President Trump. Again Pelosi exhibits deafening silence.

But, Mr. President, you should know that millions upon millions of Americans support you and urge you to stand firm and defeat the monstrous and fast evolving Democrat Socialist party. The once 'silent majority' is with you all the way and it is silent no more.

So, dear Mr. President, electrify the world again – as your predecessor once did – and Build up this Wall.
