Trump: I Will ‘Shut Down’ Government over Wall Funding, Catch and Release


Breitbart: President Trump says he will “shut down” the federal government if the Republicans and Democrats in Congress do not deliver border wall funding and an end to the Catch and Release loophole system in their latest funding bill.

On Sunday, Trump took to Twitter to not only call the United States’ immigration laws the “DUMBEST & WORST” around the world — the U.S. imports more than 1.5 million foreign nationals every year — but also sent a warning to Congress where he says the government will be shut down if he does not get his funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and an end to Catch and Release.

House Republicans, led by Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS), have tied $5 billion in southern border wall funding to a slew of pro-open borders and pro-big business immigration changes.

For example, as Breitbart News noted, GOP-run House appropriations committee voted to revive President Obama’s Catch and Release policies — where illegal aliens and asylum seekers are caught at the border, then released into the U.S. general public — by deliberately defunding Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ tightening of asylum laws.

Yoder and the GOP-led House appropriations committee’s efforts to codify the Catch and Release policy into law would give the entire populations of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras — 32 million Central Americans — the right to migrate to the U.S., as well as any other foreign nationals who travel to the country and claim they are fleeing gangs or domestic violence. This translates to a foreign population at least half the size of the American midwest being given the right to migrate to the country under the GOP’s Homeland Security funding measure.  more here

  1. Earlier I said Trump could begin the shutting down with the FBI.
    Nope. I’ve got a better idea. Shut down the Treasury office that cuts govt and congressional payroll checks.

  2. Good, shut down the government. The less work they do, the less damage they do. TRAITOROUS BASTARDS!! Except Trump, of course.

  3. I am completely on board with Trump!
    This government not only needs to be shut down but completely overhauled.

    Let’s do this.

  4. If the government ever really shuts down, how would you notice? By the time I notice the inner cities will be smoldering piles of shit and my sister and nieces will finally know why I used to own guns….

  5. PDT just laid down his marker for RINO Ryan & the McTurtle

    ya wanna win in November? … put the wall funding to a vote … either the dems support … or lose their elections in Red States (I hate that term!) … get it?

  6. The guys light years smarter than me. That ain’t saying much. Why did’t he call out Turtle Boy and Ryan directly. Let’s get it on. Bring the Krotch Brothers to the party too. After all, Ryan and Turtle Boy only act in their best interest.

  7. DJT POTUS can we add anchor babies to that tweet??

    OR is that what etc. means?


  8. Of course he means anchor babies.

    POTUS Trump is going to get this one way or another. In the meantime, no matter what they may say in the future, Ryan, McConnell, Graham and the rest are never, EVER to be trusted and there’s nothing in the Constitution or anywhere else that guarantees them their seats in the Congress. Out with ’em!!

  9. Shutting down government is excellent strategy for conservatives. Most of us have lots more assets than the leftist scumbags do. We have ways of earning a living that leftists would not consider. We can survive a striking government much better than the leftist losers who rely on govt jobs and handouts.

  10. Trump has had enough. The time for congress to be dicking around is over. The people of this country have had enough as well. We all should be writing our displeasure to these bozos often. McConnell is a hold over from the past DO NOTHING congress. And why the hell is Ryan still there? Go home and stay there.
