Pelosi and her anti-Trumpers are in full celebration of what appears at first glance to be a win for open borders, but a closer reading of President Trump’s announcement to temporarily reopen the government appears to be one of common sense and deliberation-qualities that the rabid Left are only too eager to reject. The temporary reopening, even as Pelosi began to look more desperate and vulnerable, will further national security (particularly by redressing airport security) as well as get federal employees up to date on their paychecks until Feb. 15. After that, President Trump has given Pelosi an ultimatum to sign off on funding for the border wall or he will declare a national emergency and get the job done. We’ll get the popcorn ready.

Even more Democrats have now publicly taken a position against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s opposition to a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, as President Donald Trump considers an emergency declaration to build the wall with executive authority.
Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI), according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, now supports funding additional barriers along the border.
“Democrats and Democrat leaders should recognize there may be some additional areas on the border that might require some fencing or steel slats … we already have a lot of it down there already,” Kind said, per the local newspaper report.
Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), another Democrat, is calling for Democrat leaders to negotiate with Trump on the border wall–but to do so after the government reopens.
“Open the government first, because you can’t negotiate about anything while the government is closed,” Gottheimer said in an interview with CNN.
