Trump's 'border security' shutdown: Cut off cash to people and agencies that protect us

January 03, 2019 / Chris Truax

With the government shutdown now in its second week, President Donald Trump has doubled down on his demand for a border wall. As Trump explained, We need Border Security, and as EVERYONE knows, you can’t have Border Security without a Wall. The Drones & Technology are just bells and whistles.” He’s even threatened to shut down the border entirely and close America’s ports of entry with Mexico if his demands aren’t met. But there is a problem with Trump’s steely-eyed determination to keep the government partially shut down in the name of border security. There is no polite way to put this, but facts are facts and there is no room for debate: If the president really wants to protect our borders, this shutdown is objectively stupid, no ifs, ands or buts
