Mostly fair points. But look at it from the other side. Orange has been a petulant child over this.

First of all he cares nothing about this wall other than it’s a rallying symbol for his base. He had already agreed to funding the govt without it before going all wobbly after Ann Coulter yelled at him like a bad little schoolboy.

Secondly, he could have had 25 mill for DACA last summer. But the wall apparently wasn’t a crises then.

This is all about his ego and not being able to be seen as backing down. That’s not a valid reason to close down the govt.

My solution is DACA plus set up a bipartisan commission on border security. Whatever they agree to both sides agree to fully fund.

Neither side wants to lose this as a political issue. Orange, because it is the issue plus abortion for his base. D’s because they know that everyone else, including moderates and independents agree with them.
