  1. So I reviewed the first 3 pages of the Demo Border proposal. Last 3 pages appear unrelated to the “wall” and too wonkish for me. In summary the Demos are offering about $3 billion in increases over FY18 ($1.9 billion for Customs and Border Protection, $110 million for ICE, $354m for TSA and $555m for Coast Guard). Sounds good.

    Alas, bullet point 2 at the top of page 2 probably has a negotiating killer. Five specific wall segments are specifically PROHIBITED from being funded. I assume these walls have something to do with Trump’s $5.7B request.

    So when are us citizens going to demand that this security/wall craziness be turned over to the experts: engineers, Border Patrol, high tech, etc.?
