As a candidate, and as President, Donald Trump has said repeatedly that “If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country.” President Trump campaigned on the promise of building a wall along our border with Mexico, as a means of strengthening enforcement of our immigration laws, and in order to enhance our National Security. We’re going to talk about President Trump’s Wall, why it is important, and how the promise to build that wall is much more significant than it might appear to be on the surface. Trump’s promise of a wall is intertwined with our American Culture and our history as a nation governed by laws, not by men. Trump’s Wall actually sits on the active fault line of a true Constitutional crisis. We are in a situation where an elected President is being pilloried by the Democrats and their accomplices in the media for merely trying to do his Constitutional job of seeing that the laws of the land are faithfully executed, where a former President is celebrated for placing himself above the law and NOT enforcing the duly enacted laws. And we have the Democrat minority in Congress willing to shut down the entire Federal government unless the President will break his oath of office and not enforce our immigration laws. This is why President Trump’s Wall is so important. It isn’t just about bricks and mortar. It’s not just a physical barrier to be used as a tool to help strengthen our southern border. That Wall is about our elected Government leaders keeping faith with the American people, it is about re-establishing our commitment to the Rule of Law, and it is about renewing our historical commitment to live as a Nation that is governed by laws, not by men.
