Trump's border wall funding will likely have to wait
    Republicans in Congress are considering delaying a decision on President Trump's request for $1.5 billion this year to begin construction on a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
    Reuters reported Tuesday that some Republicans say that the money needed for the project would likely not be in a spending bill that must pass next month to avoid a government shutdown. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., told Reuters that funding could be considered “at a later time.”
    Trump promised that Mexico would pay for his wall, a demand Mexico has repeatedly rejected.

They are not serious
   According to press reports, the "wall" that the Trump Administration is proposing in the current budget is mostly a repair job of existing fencing.
    Back in 2006, I was skeptical when Congress passed the Secure Fence Act, so I launched Operation BEEF.
    Sure enough, they weren't serious.
    Now President Trump is asking for funding to repair holes in the fence, and some are balking?
    They can't be serious.
    Yes they can be not serious.
    They were not serious in about the border 2006, and it appears they are not serious in 2017.
