Jordan is right!
Paul Ryan repeatedly pledged to fund the Trump border wall but was lying to Republican voters. Despite passing record spending bills Ryan refused to include funding for the wall.
Today tens of thousands of illegal migrants continue to breach the US border with Mexico. Republicans need to pass this funding before crackpot Pelosi takes charge of Congress.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) warned in an interview with Fox & Friends Tuesday that Republicans have just over a month to secure border wall funding before the Democrats take over the House in the new year.
JEDEDIAH BILA: Jim, I want to ask you about funding for the border wall. Many people on the right [are] deeply, deeply concerned Republicans will not dig their heels in on this. There’s already been potential talk about a government shutdown. How do you see this playing out? Will Republicans be strong on this issue?
REP. JORDAN: We had better be. The most important issues are the Rosenstein issue, in my mind, the Rosenstein issue I just talked about and building the border security wall and securing the southern border. We’ve seen what’s happened in the last couple of days. That was the biggest promise that the Republicans made the voters in 2016. We had better fight for that. We had better put it in the December 7th funding bill. Again, that is the single issue that the American people elected Republicans to accomplish in 2016 and we’ve got five weeks to get it done.
