David Limbaugh: Hold Tight on the Wall, President Trump

The Democrats are no more serious about border security today than they were when they falsely promised Ronald Reagan in 1986 that they’d secure the border in exchange for amnesty for some 3 million illegal immigrants.

Democrats are experts at seducing Republicans into abandoning their principled commitments. Over and over again, in contentious political skirmishes, Republicans relent in good faith — after accepting the Democrats’ promise to deliver on their side of the bargain in the future — and immediately deliver their side. But that future never comes. In legal parlance, this is fraud in the inducement.

In his notorious “read my lips” travesty in 1988, President George H.W. Bush promised that if he were to be elected, there would be “no new taxes,” but in 1990, he reneged on his pledge in reliance on the Democrats’ disingenuous and later broken promise to cut spending.

Now the unctuous, cadaverous duo of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demand that President Trump immediately reopen the federal government in exchange for their vague assurance that they will work with him in the future on border security measures.

Note: Democrats aren’t even offering Trump as much as yesteryear’s Democrats offered Reagan and Bush 41. This time around, they aren’t even pretending to make certain concessions in the future beyond the anemic $1.3 billion they’ve already committed. They’re just demanding that he unilaterally abandon his signature campaign promise for their half agreement to contemplate certain half measures on border enforcement at an unspecified future time.

Yet Trump is the one who is being unreasonable and overly political?

Many conservative commentators are saying that Democrats are solely focused on making Trump look bad and handing him a devastating political defeat, but I think it’s more than that. Of course they want to lure him into forfeiting any chance he may have for re-election, but they also now actively oppose serious border security.

The Democrats risibly claim they oppose a wall because it would be an inefficient use of federal funds — as if fiscal responsibility were even part of their passive vocabulary, let alone their active one. They insist that focusing on border enforcement is imprudent because most illegal immigration occurs from people overstaying their visas. Regardless of the accuracy of that claim, it is absurd to oppose border enforcement because it is only one important part of a series of necessary steps toward enforcement.

Don’t think for a second that Democrats oppose a wall because it wouldn’t work. They do so precisely because it would work. I repeat: It is border security they oppose, as evidenced by their opposition to Kate’s Law, their reprehensible support for sanctuary cities, their callous disregard for criminal elements, in whatever percentages, illegally crossing our borders, their jaw-dropping opposition to the deportation of MS-13 gang members and other violent criminals, their demonization of ICE, their history of obstructing border enforcement, their secret affinity for open borders because increasing illegal immigration leads to an endless new supply of future Democratic voters, and their endless game-playing over a wall, including their gleeful eagerness to keep their precious federal government shut down just so they can demagogue the issue and humiliate Trump.
