Fiery 'No More Waiting!': Malkin Says Americans 'Sick and Tired' of Border Security Delays
Says Trump should shut down gov't if needed.
CRTV host Michelle Malkin said that the funding of President Trump's border wall should be "front and center" before the midterm elections and that Americans are "sick and tired" of waiting for action from Congress.
Trump tweeted over the weekend that he could potentially shut down the government if his funding demands were not met by congress Democrats.
I would be willing to “shut down” government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!

During a rally in Tampa in support of gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis Tuesday, the president doubled down on his push for border safety.
"We want maximum border security and respect for our heroes: ICE, border patrol and law enforcement," Trump said.
Appearing on Wednesday on "Fox & Friends," Malkin said that she was happy to see Trump remain consistent with his push for border safety.
"Border security is a commitment that doesn't have an expiration date," she said. "It is a constitutional duty. It's a prerogative. It's imperative that [it] never ends."
She added that the American people are "sick and tired" of the government making small, incremental investments in border security, which is a "fundamental duty" of the government.
"Why is it that these Beltway establishment types answer more to corporate special interests than they do to ordinary citizens? ... No more waiting anymore!" she said
