In the meantime, if it’s a crisis affecting the heart and soul, maybe a call to the Red Cross might be in order…
Regarding Democrats not caring about border security:
Trump wrongly claims Democrats won’t fund border security
From CNN’s Marshall Cohen and Clare Foran
President Trump claimed that “the federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only: because Democrats will not fund border security.”
It’s not true that Democrats oppose funding for border security, they just aren’t willing to meet Trump’s demand for more than $5 billion in wall funding. Congressional Democratic leaders have offered funding for roughly $1.3 billion for border security in the current shutdown fight.
That offer remains on the table.
Border security has been a cornerstone of Democratic immigration proposals for years. The Obama-backed comprehensive immigration bill in 2013, which passed with unanimous Democratic support, would have added up to 40,000 Border Patrol agents and deploy more than $3 billion for technology upgrades at the border. House Republicans refused to vote on the proposal and it never reached Obama’s desk.
