Waking up to the insanity and compromised thinking of their party, some Democrats are actually looking to work with President Trump! Defying her powerful colleagues in Congress, California Representative Jackie Speier said recently that she’s willing to compromise with President Trump and her Republican counterparts over a border security bill.
Mrs. Speier voiced her dedication to securing a DACA deal quid pro quo for increased border security and a border wall.
Check it out, per Washington Examiner:
Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., broke ranks with Democratic leaders on Thursday and said she is willing to work with President Trump and congressional Republicans on legalizing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in return for border wall funding.
“I’m willing to go, you know, midway with the president and the Republicans to fund higher-tech walls along our border, more border security, enhanced measures, but I really feel very strongly that our DACA kids need to be protected,” Speier told MSNBC host Craig Melvin, who seemed stunned by the statement.
“To be clear, I want to clarify. You are okay with giving the president his wall in exchange for DACA?” Melvin asked.
“I would be willing to give the president a high-tech wall, willing to give him some amount of money to build his wall to a certain degree,” Speier said.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have both previously insisted the Democratic Party would not compromise on that request.
By breaking with official Democratic position, Representative Speier puts herself in a precarious position. It can be difficult come election season to secure funding for campaigning. However, by actively working with the President on an issue which is extremely popular, she may woo moderate voters who would normally be turned off by liberal immigration policy.
At any rate, protecting American citizens and ensuring the United States has a commonsensical immigration strategy must come first. It’s telling that Mrs. Speier is the only one of her Democrat brethren to publicly endorse President Trump’s border wall compromise.
The left has certainly backed themselves into a corner where none of their options are good ones. The question remains, though: out of those options, which is best for the country?
