Former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan: Democrats’ battle against the border wall is driven by identity politics.
President Trump declares a national emergency to build the wall; here’s the reaction from former Border Patrol chief Mark Morgan.
The more the Democrats fights securing the border, the larger the price they will pay in 2020.
Former President Barack Obama’s Border Patrol chief blamed the disagreement surrounding the border wall on identity politics, during a Friday night interview with Brian Kilmeade on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Mark Morgan was on Carlson’s show to discuss President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to reallocate funds toward constructing a wall along the southern border. Trump received $1.375 billion from the bill that he signed, and intends to dedicate an around $6.5 billion more from other agencies.
“Mark Morgan is the former head of the border patrol. And he’s heard the rhetoric, but he knows the reality. Mark, is the president making up an emergency?” Kilmeade asked.
“Absolutely not,” Morgan responded. “Brian, this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement, border security perspective. How many more statistics do we have to provide? How many more factually based examples do we have to provide? How many more angel families have to stand in front of some of these individuals before they finally say, ‘Yeah, okay, this is real.’ It’s just incredulous.” More
Democrats are engaging in identity politics, pure and simple, rather than building the wall in areas the DHS and border patrol have deemed it necessary.https://t.co/LPMQLcsL5j

In an interview with CNN former border patrol chief Mark Morgan said that President Trump had no choice but to declare a national emergency to get funding for the border wall because “Congress failed.”
The Democrats think know so much more and are much better informed than those actually on the ground every day at the Southern border.
This isn’t only about identity politics. It’s also about stupid, stubborn, defiant Democrats who have chosen to disregard their duty to represent the people in favor of their own selfish pride.
