FAIR: Wall in doubt with Dems in control

US Capitol NO MONEYAn immigration enforcement organization says with Democrats in control of the House next year, funding projects like the border wall will be very problematic.

Members of the military have been busy putting up wire barricades along the southern border in response to the migrant caravan that has been making its way from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border. The erection of wire barriers illustrates just how Trump's proposed border wall would be valuable in compelling migrants to enter through proper ports of entry or turn away.

But with Democrats taking control of the House in January, money for the wall won't be easily forthcoming. Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, has no doubt how a Democratic majority would deal with the issue.

"They have made it very clear that they no longer support building any kind of security fence," he tells OneNewsNow. "It's questionable whether they even support any kind of immigration enforcement."

But Mehlman says Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-California), who is anticipating becoming Speaker of the House again, is going to have to understand that some of the midterm Democrat House pickups occurred in "purple" districts where new members support stronger immigration enforcement.

"Pelosi is going to have two competing factions of her party, and she's going to have to make the determination whether she's going to go with the 'Abolish ICE' wing of the party or the more responsible wing of the party that recognizes that immigration enforcement is important," says Mehlman. "It's a national security issue; it's about protecting vital interests of the American people."

Democrats, he suggests, are going to have to step up and demonstrate to the American people that they can be responsible players.
