Chinks In The Democrat Armor? Maybe They Are Reading The Polls That Say That A Clear Majority Of Americans Want Robust Border Security

There is so much smoke being blown from so many directions that I have no idea what the reality is, but this certainly does seem as though the traditional Democrat adherence to the message is cracking just a bit.

House Budget Chair Yarmuth: I Don't Think a Wall Is Immoral - Pelosi 'Willing to Negotiate'

On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s News HQ,” House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (D-KY) said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is “willing to negotiate.” Yarmuth also differed with Pelosi’s argument that a wall is immoral.

Host Leland Vittert asked, “[T]he positions of the White House may be a little bit all over the place, but Nancy Pelosi says not one dollar for the wall, and calls a wall immoral. So, if you’ve got leadership saying something’s immoral, how’s that negotiating in good faith?”

Yarmuth said, "Well, she's willing to negotiate. You don't negotiate in the media. You take your position."

I don't know what the best and most efficient border protection is, and if a wall is not needed along the entire southern border, then that is fine with me. There is only one non-negotiable point; the decision must be based on rational analysis of the issues, and not political talking points.

But...I look at Israel, which has some significant border issues of its own, and I see lots and lots of tall concrete walls. Yes, our border with Mexico is many times the length of Israel's borders with the West Bank and Gaza, but scaling their methods would probably work rather well.
