Paul Ryan: ‘It’s Time for the Wall’

In a 30-second video of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) visit to the southern border of the United States posted online on Tuesday, Ryan said that border patrol agents “need more tools … to do their jobs effectively” and vows to “get this done this week.”

But the name of the video reads like a Trump campaign slogan: “It’s Time for the Wall” and notes that there are 1,954 miles of southern border between the United States and Mexico.

“I had the opportunity to travel down to Texas, to go to the Rio Grande Valley; spend time with our border patrol,” Ryan said as an EDM beat plays in the background. “When you see what they’re up against it really gives you even greater respect for what they do.

“They clearly need more tools and more support to do their job effectively,” Ryan said. “That’s why we’re going to get this done this week.”

“It’s time for The [sic] Wall,” the text accompanying the video reads. “That’s why the House voted to fully fund the Trump administration’s request to build it.”

The text notes that a wall is not, however, enough. It reads:

As Speaker Ryan saw first hand when he toured the Rio Grande Valley earlier this year, our law enforcement professionals need more tools and more support to do their jobs effectively. So in addition to a physical barrier along our southern border, the House took action to boost funding for our military, update their equipment, and yes, give our service members a well-deserved pay raise.

When it comes to securing our border and keeping Americans safe, talk is cheap. These actions show Congress is serious about getting the job done.

    • I completely agree with you. He’s been undermining President Trump since day one!!! He a snake in the grass!! BUILD THAT WALL, President Trump. Do not trust Paul Ryan..ever!!!

        • 100%!!!!!! Not a question in my mind!!’ By the looks of everyone around me on this site…most of us all feel the same. Sure is a breath of fresh air then the PIG who just left office for 8 long dragged out years. Now this moron, Paul the snake Ryan has to go look for himself..really??? What next, will he try to take credit for putting this in motion? Sorry wanna be Demwit Ryan, President Trump beat you to it!! That man is always one step ahead of all the corrupt politicians in DC!! God bless President Trump!!! GO TRUMP 2020!!’

  1. Does anybody still believe what Paul Ryan promises to do? Not me. He is a nice guy, but with such hair-do nobody should trust him. You remember in 2008 Ryan slandered Obama that he caused closure of Janesville GM plant. Ryan faked not to remember Obama was not president in 2008. I have lost hope with Ryan and especially with that hair-do.

  2. What took you so long Wimpo? We’ve been telling you the wall was needed for a long time. Where was your head? Never mind, we know!

  3. That wall is a complete waste of effort and money.
    What if Huge Orange said let’s dig big hole?
    Who is going to pay for the wall and rebuilding TX? Oh right, the middle class because the top 2% need a tax break.

  4. What’s more important to right wingers today:
    1. Trying to rebuild Texas, but refusing to let Mexicans in to help with the rebuilding?
    2. Trying to rebuild Florida, but refusing to let any Latinos in to help with the rebuilding?
    3. Demolishing the EPA?
    4. Giving the wealthiest a big tax cut?
    5. Declaring Trump emperor for life?
    6. Building a worthless, expensive wall, but not rebuilding Texas or Florida?
    7. Ending public education?
    8. Ending Medicare?
    9. Giving Social Security funds to Wall Street for fun and games?
    10. Doing whatever the Koch Bros. want to do to the country next?
    11. Ending FEMA?
    12. Crushing all unions?
    13. Getting out of the UN?
    14. Abolishing the minimum wage?
    15. Giving a blank check to the defense industry?
    16. Burning more coal?
    17. Demonizing liberals?
    18. Hating Hillary?
    19. Hating Obama?
    20. Hating FDR?

  5. So I guess now that he’s been down South Texas and saw first hand maybe the President had it right the whole time, it’s time for the Democratic Congress to get their butts in gear and fund the WALL it’s time
