President Trump on Monday challenged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has called the White House's proposed southern border wall "an immorality," to explain why she is not insisting on the removal of existing physical barriers, or opposing ongoing construction of new wall projects near San Diego, Calif.
Trump, in a follow-up tweet, asserted that the country needs a "powerful Wall" to deter the incoming migrant caravan that marched freely through the Guatemala-Mexico border last Friday, after the gates were left wide open by officials seeking to avoid a confrontation. The caravan, which consists of approximately 1,000 Central American migrants, was among two groups that "broke into Mexico and are headed our way," Trump said.
"If Nancy Pelosi thinks that Walls are 'immoral,' why isnt she requesting that we take down all of the existing Walls between the U.S. and Mexico, even the new ones just built in San Diego at their very strong urging," Trump tweeted. "Let millions of unchecked 'strangers' just flow into the U.S."
Pelosi did not immediately respond.
Some progressives in Congress, including Democratic Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar, have claimed this month "we know walls don't work." Escobar, signaling she may support removing some barriers, called walls "ugly" and "monuments to division."
On Sunday, Trump charged that Pelosi -- who has not called for destroying existing walls -- "is so petrified of the 'lefties' in her party that she has lost control" and is now behaving "irrationally" as a result.
The San Diego Union-Tribune has reported that physical barriers, including walling and fencing, encompass approximately 46 miles of the city's 60-mile border shared with Mexico. In February, construction is slated to begin on approximately 14 miles of additional secondary walling, with work to begin on 15 miles of replacement wall this summer.

She might just call his bluff...
Why isn’t she advocating that ALL walls throughout the United States be torn down?
In fact if she is such a globalist then why isn’t she advocating that ALL walls through the entire world be torn down?
Where is Pelosi?
She was supposed to have gone to her mansion at the vineyard this weekend.
“She might just call his bluff..”
That isn’t a bluff. It’s a question.
Trump needs to keep repeating: one tenth of one percent of the federal budget, and the Botoxed B*tch wont spend one dollar.
Keep pinning that on BB and the lowlife disgusting Rats.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
I agree, she and Chuckie want to spend billions on social spending but won’t even negotiate for funds going to national security.
Does she want to keep it because, like the Presidente of Mexico, she was paid a huge bribe by a cartel and is afraid for her life if she double crosses them?
Like Harry Reid, I think the seriousness of the charge requires an investigation!
Imagine her mind going through that now. He wants me to call his bluff, just like he called mine. Lol.
LOL! I wouldn’t put anything past Pelosi, she’s evil or demented or both.
Nancy Pelosi´s house.
A clever trap....and the real reason why she won’t give him a dollar for a wall....it’s permanent. It will never be legislated away.
Why isn’t Trump saying that if they had the 2 million of guberment money the hag has spent on family vacations they could use that for the wall too.
The Democrats are OK with the existing walls because they are mostly near US cities and have the effect of pushing the influx of illegals into remote areas, making it less visible to the American people.
The Democrats oppose additional walls, to seal off those those remote areas, because they want the illegal influx to continue at all costs. Because the American People must be replaced.
I think she’s on the take...
Wow, at LEAST six cameras visible too. How disgustingly immoral.
The cowardly Botoxed B*tch cowers in her compound, what a worthless and weak POS.
Hey Nanzi, clean up the streets in your sh*thole city, theyre as disgusting as you are!!!!
