President Trump retweeted and endorsed this sentiment from then President Obama’s 2011 State of the Union address.
I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. #SOTU

Obama as a senator and as president talked a ton about border security and even about a fence on the southern border.
But now that Trump is president and actually trying to DO something about the border, the party of Obama (who as president, added more than $8.5 trillion to the national debt) can’t find a way to allow $5.7 billion to be allocated for a wall.
