As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Pelosi Offers Trump “Normandy Fencing”

I don’t know. Might stop some cattle from illegally immigrating.

According to the Washington Examiner:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she could support a border security deal that adds new Normandy fencing along about 30 miles of open border.

But she won’t bring a bill to the floor that includes Trump’s vision for a wall or steel-slat barrier, she said.

Pelosi said she’d back Normandy fencing used to finish approximately 700 miles authorized by the 2006 Secure Fence Act. A 2017 government report determined about 50 miles of that authorized fencing are incomplete, although Republicans have put forward higher estimates. Pelosi said only 30 miles are incomplete.

Normandy fencing includes movable barriers that allow vehicles to pass through and the barriers are low enough to climb over. Pelosi said that’s as far as she’ll go on a barrier.

“If the president wants to call that a wall, he can call it a wall,” Pelosi said. “Are there places where enhanced fencing, Normandy fencing, will work? Let them have that discussion.”

  1. “Normandy fencing”…land mines, tank traps & heavy machine gun bunkers…
    I would LUV to see those along the USA-Mexico border :-)

  2. Such an insult to those that attacked Normandy — So many died… and to equate this ‘sawhorse’ barrier with Normandy and the mayhem and slaughter is an insult to those that fought there. Pelosi, of course, should be ashamed of herself. There is no shame there.

    This notion that a country would not have a wall is silly. Say what you want about 1 world, etc. and the reality is that if we are going to be tribal (have countries) then we need to have a border… build a wall, add personnel, add drones – -add penalties for harboring someone or hiring someone… but for goodness sake a group of 15 year olds could solve this whole thing in 45 minutes of meetings and very quickly…

    A Marshall Plan of sorts… 45 weeks you could build 1500 miles of fencing if people just decided to do it…

    The 10-25 million illegals could also be made to go through a process to become something… residents, visitors, workers, whatever…

    I am sick that only a few people like Trump want to solve this… it is a disgrace that it has not been solved by now.

    George W Bush — where were you?

    Imagine….. we have a country with an open border. How dumb is that?

    • But millionaire Pelosi and all her wealthy, elitist progressive-socialist friends have “walls” around their mansions, estates & penthouses… :-(

    • You know, land mines aren’t that hard for non-government actors to manufacture. Does the acronym IED ring any bells?

      And I don’t think Joe Six-Pack in Palookaville would get too upset if some drug mule lost a limb or two.

      Wouldn’t it be amusing to watch Nasty Nancy having to choose between a passive, government-built wall, and an Irish democracy of pissed off American citizens militarizing the border with IED’s?

      • I was speaking in jest. Private citizens shouldn’t be doing what you suggest. Remember – the police monitor sites like this and you don’t want to get arrested for a satirical comment that the powers that be don’t think is funny.

        • Of course not. Us peons should not be allowed to protect our own country. We need to leave it to the professionals as we do not know anything.

          • I think the professionals (i.e. the US Army and Border Patrol) are quite capable of securing the border. And since the 4th Amendment does not apply within 100 miles of the border the problem will be solved.

  3. If illegal migrants can climb over the fence, it’s a pointless barrier. Pelosi is an ass, and she’s just determined to thwart Trump’s plans, no matter what.

    • I used to think that it was Democrats versus Republicans in a tussle of ideas and policies.

      Now, I see the Dems just want to bring down the other party. No more ideas and policies, just flat out war to destroy anyone’s power except the Dem Party. They are becoming more obvious about this and their people like it. Scary stuff.
