Border Security

On Thursday morning, Donald Trump used Twitter to address Sen. Chuck Schumer’s spin on yesterday’s bipartisan negotiations. The President tweeted: “Cryin Chuck told his favorite lie when he used his standard sound bite that I ‘slammed the table & walked out of the room. He had a temper tantrum.’ Because I knew he would say that, and after Nancy said no to proper Border Security, I politely said bye-bye and left, no slamming!” Additionally, Stigall discusses Canada’s strict policy when dealing with illegal immigration.


Toast of the Week

The Chris Stigall Show’s first Toast of the Week for 2019 includes toasts to Chuck & Sloppy Choppers, the Chicago Bears mascot, and morticians.


Northern Border: Canada’s Strict Immigration

In June 2018, The Atlantic published a piece titled “Canada’s Immigration Policy Isn’t Really That Welcoming.” Columnist Tony Keller explains “if [Canada’s] image appears to be entirely liberal, that’s largely because its methods of controlling immigration are simply quieter, subtler, and less obvious than America’s.” Keller notes that despite Canada’s high immigration rate, the country does utilize border walls to help control illegal entry.


Democrats Need to Come to the Negotiating Table

During a Wednesday meeting with Democrat party leaders, President Donald Trump allegedly slammed his fist on the table and walked out of the White House Situation Room after being told by Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi that they were unwilling to concede funds towards border security. The government shutdown is within days of becoming the longest on record.
