1. Here is some truth about the wall funding and the spending bill. The good and the bad.
2. Congress is set to approve $1.6 billion for the wall. This is what Trump admin asked for last year before the DACA talks started.
3. However, Congress limited the type of wall that could be build with the money to those already in practice before the 2017 funding bill.
4. Congress also is demanding a study of the wall, it's impacts, staffing needed, upkeep that will be needed, and design to be used. This is to be submitted by DHS within 180 days. The interior and EPA agencies must also state any impact.
5. The only place Congress specifically said a wall couldn't be built was in the Santa Anna wildlife area.
6. About a billion of the 1.6 billion is directed to be used to build around 40 miles in southern California and along the rio grand river.
7. The plan for the Trump wall is a double layered wall. It will consist of a 20ft Ballard steel wall (fence) at the border and then about 150 feet from the border a stronger wall. The border patrol will patrol the area between the two walls.
8. The $1.6 billion basically allows the 20ft steel wall/fence to be build immediately. The rest of the wall system will be worked out in 2018 elections.
9. So the Dems have a talking point they didn't allow it to be called a wall. It says fencing in the bill. Does anyone really think 20fiot high strengthed steel is a fence?
10. This is postmodern bullshit again. Calling it a fence doesn't make it not a wall. However the Dems can now go around and tell their zombie voters they stopped the wall which they didn't.
11. President Trump got the money he originally wanted but with some strings, so it wasn't a complete victory. However he can now start his wall system.
