Syndicated columnist and author Michelle Malkin praised President Trump for standing strong on his demand for border wall funding.

A partial government shutdown stretched into an eleventh day on Tuesday, with Democrats and Republicans dug in over funding for a barrier on the border with Mexico.

Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to slam House Democrats' legislative package to re-open the government once they get control of the chamber on Thursday, as it includes no new money for his long-promised border wall.

"We have a president who is resolute on the central campaign promise that he made that put him into office. Sovereignty is the defining issue of President Trump and his administration," Malkin said on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday.

She said she hopes Trump continues to "hold the line" on his demand for wall funding, because many law-abiding Americans -- particularly naturalized citizens -- support his efforts to secure the border.

"Immigration is every issue. It's national security, it's economic security, it's public safety," Malkin said. "And every day in this country, we get a reminder of that, and we're sick and tired of seeing the headlines."

She pointed to the many victims of illegal immigrant crime, including California police officer Ronil Singh, who was gunned down on Dec. 26, allegedly by a Mexican national who was in the country illegally and had previous arrests.

"That's why President Trump poses such a threat to the open borders establishment and racket, because he's exposing the consequences of that," Malkin said.
