Having run on the promise of actual border security – and winning – I’d say more people want an “$18 billion wall” than don’t want it. Sanders also posits that Americans would rather provide full and complete amnesty for DACA Dreamers.
For instance, here’s why Sanders is wrong – this author would only swallow DACA if it were a compromise for the expediting process of a border wall.
Yet, others do not agree with full amnesty as Sanders suggests, and truthfully, I cannot blame those who do not. For decades, we’ve seen our politicians shrug federal law and make American taxpayers take it on the chin for the burgeoning cost of illegal, unfettered immigration.
Bernie Sanders has been making the rounds lately.
His goal, to push the agenda that the border wall will cost too much money.
Sanders believes American people, the same ones who voted Trump into office, are against the idea.
Eric Trump took a moment to call Sanders out on his hypocritical reasoning.
abcnews.go.com reports: Stephanopoulos, noting that Democrats have in the past voted to double the size of existing border fencing with Mexico, asked Sanders if his party would agree to extending the wall in exchange for protecting young immigrants under DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“Is there some kind of compromise here?” Stephanopoulos asked.
Sanders responded, “I don't think there's anybody who disagrees that we need strong border security. If the president wants to work with us to make sure we have strong border security, let’s do that. But the idea of spending some $18 billion on a wall that most people think will not do what he says it will do does not make any sense.”

Grand Jury Empaneled In Case Against Wife Of Bernie Sanders
The case against the wife of former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has deepened.
From VTDigger.org: The federal probe into a 2010 land deal orchestrated by former Burlington College president Jane Sanders, wife of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has deepened. VTDigger has confirmed that a grand jury has been empaneled and has taken sworn testimony in the case.
Former Burlington College board member Robin Lloyd says she testified for about an hour on Oct. 26 before a grand jury at the federal courthouse in Burlington.
Paul Van de Graaf, chief of the criminal division for the U.S. attorney’s office in Vermont, questioned Lloyd about her role as the development chair of the college’s board of trustees during a period when Sanders was collecting donations and pledges for the purchase of a $10 million city lakefront property.
Lloyd, who is publisher of the progressive website Toward Freedom, kept copious board meeting minutes as the development chair for the college. In the interview with Van de Graaf, Lloyd said he “was focused on what I knew about who had been approached for contributions.”
“I helped provide a timeline of what happened — and when — in terms of development,” Lloyd said. “It was general questions about donors, and money coming in.”
