President Donald Trump has been very vocal in the past few months about making funding and construction of the border wall a top Congressional priority.
The President may have new allies joining the ranks after the coming election.
Current Arizona Senate candidate Kelli Ward has recently run new adds calling for the border wall.
“Arizona Senate candidate Kelli Ward launched a new campaign ad reiterating her support for President Donald Trump’s promise to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico Border with Mexico after a Border Patrol agent was shot in the Tucson Sector on Tuesday.
Securing our border isn’t just about illegal immigration,” Ward says in the ad, which includes a photo of the Arizona Daily Star headline: Tuscon Border Agent Shot and Wounded Near Arizona-Mexico Border. “It’s about stopping dangerous drugs, illegal weapons, and human trafficking.
It’s about protecting our communities,” Ward contends in the ad. “President Trump is committed to building a wall, but many in Congress don’t share this commitment, including my opponents. I support the president on building the wall,” Ward says. “In the United States Senate, I’ll be a relentless voice to secure our border and I will not stop until it’s done.”
As the midterm elections draw closer, many candidates have tried to align with Trump policies or stances, as his numbers have sky rocketed.
Ward has always backed the border wall and she is making sure everyone knows where she stands. It will be interesting to see how congress acts since currently many are opposing the border wall or are trying to trade funding for amnesty. If enough seats were won by Trump backers in the midterm elections, the President might get his way without having to negotiate any amnesty at all.
