In his address to the nation, President Trump specified that he is willing to settle for a secure fence instead of a wall. He said this at least twice in the week leading up to his televised address. Yet, Schumer and Pelosi and other Dems keep referring to their opposition to a "wall," keep saying that a "wall" is immoral, etc., etc. The 2013 Gang of Eight immigration reform bill, which every Senate Democrat voted for, included $7.5 billion for 700 miles of border fencing (plus a large increase in the number of border patrol agents). So what's the problem with Trump's request for $5.7 billion for 700 miles of fencing? And why are Democrats virtually ignoring Trump's significant compromise of being willing to accept a fence instead of a wall? Marc Thiessen: This is the stupidest government shutdown in US history. When will Dems get smart about it?
