Donald Trump’s wall has always been a bad idea, in fact many assumed he was simply using the idea of it as a political move to secure the election.
But now the wall may soon become a reality and American doesn’t know how to react.
Senator Bernie Sanders this Monday stated that Republicans and Democrats must come together to avoid a potential government shutdown, which he claimed would be “disastrous” for Americans.
“Whatever the motives of the Republican leadership, one thing is clear: A government shutdown would be disastrous for the American people,” Sanders claimed in a new op-ed published by The Washington Post.
Sanders, who is aligned with the Democrats, stated that lawmakers are suppose to work together “in a bipartisan manner” to prevent a shutdown.
“A shutdown would harm tens of millions of working-class families who would be unable to access vital services. It would disrupt the lives of hundreds of thousands of federal employees who would not receive the paychecks they expected,” Sanders wrote.
“It would endanger members of the U.S. military who are putting their lives on the line defending our nation.”
The recent stand by the Vermont senator comes after President Trump’s proposed border wall has become a halting point for both Republicans and Democrats.
Trump is advocating for his controversial wall to become a condition for any future deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protected young immigrants from deportation. Democrats, however, have refused to fund a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“The Republican Congress must act,” Sanders claimed in the op-ed. “A clean Dream Act must be signed into law as part of any budget agreement.”
