Nancy Pelosi took a bit of a victory lap around Washington after she held Trump to a draw on the border wall.
She held him to a draw because the fight was delayed not decided. President Trump has given Congress three weeks to get something done and if they don’t he still has options.
Lindsey Graham counseled him to go nuclear and tie the debt ceiling raise (that we must do avoid default on our debts) to the wall.
That would work although it is not clear if the GOP would go along with it. The national emergency route is still open as is forcing Pelosi to do the right thing.
To that end, some wives of Border Patrol Agents of the Rio Grand Valley took matters into their own hands and sent Pelosi a wake-up call.
They sent her a blistering letter and Nancy Pelosi would be wise to listen to their wise words. They wrote:
Dear Ms. Pelosi-
We the WIVES OF THE RGV (Rio Grande Valley) BP (Border Patrol) would like to cordially invite you to come visit McAllen, TX as President Trump did. It appears you are not busy today or any day, until Tuesday when you will return from your 4 day vacation. Since you’ve closed the House, you should come visit us!!
Most of us wives will be home and available. We will not be grocery shopping, dropping off dry cleaning, taking our cars for oil changes, throwing our children birthday parties, or even jetting off to Puerto Rico for a few days. Heck, some of us didn’t even sign our kids back up for activities b/c it appears you are unable or unwilling to negotiate. So, like I said, we’ll be here!!
We would like to show you around! You don’t need to bring any security detail. Our husbands/boyfriends/fiances/wives/significant others are actually very good at their jobs, thank goodness! And since you see no threat here, I’m sure you can just make a quick flight down here alone. Hey, Trump might even allow you to use his plane for this visit!!
When you ask Trump to open the Government, then you’ll negotiate, even though you already said you won’t secure our border….this is kind of like when our kids want to eat dessert first, but they swear they’ll eat their broccoli after…this is kind of like that,but no notes dumb enough to play that game!
For the record, many of us have saved for these days. We’ve faced many shutdowns before. But, we also recognize a weak leader when we see one, and we realize you may take awhile to come around.
We’d also appreciate if you’d stop pretending that you care about federal workers. If you did, you would care for their safety, not just their paychecks. We can hold out awhile longer, if it means our husbands and communities are safer.
You don’t even need to worry about those MS-13 gang members you’ll see running across the Border. Our guys and gals catch a lot of them.Like I said, they are good at their jobs!! I mean, if we had a wall we’d catch way more of them. But thanks to your laws, the ones we do catch we’ll take to our huge air conditioned building, feed them, let them clean up, offering them clothes/hats/socks, maybe play on the billiard tables, or ping pong, or watch a movie, all while they wait for our charter bus to drive them to their “family” that lives in L.A. I mean, you don’t need to worry about that…OMG I just realized…isn’t L.A. part of your state?? Wow, sorry. My bad!
Also, it appears you do not own a pair of big girl pants. Do not worry, us BP wives own many pairs. In fact, that’s all we own! We’d love to give you a pair of ours, you know we’d buy you your own, but we we’re trying not to spend right now.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
