Busting the Barricades: What I Saw at the Populist Revolt
"Trump won on the message of a border wall and he won big. The GOP leadership should have defied government recalcitrance and shut the government down if necessary until they appropriate the funds to start building that wall....
The notion that congress can't find $20 billion in our nearly $4 trillion national budget is absurd...And here's the reality: the wall pays for itself in the long run. Each year California tax payers spend $25 billion on illegal immigrants...the wall will yield substantial savings." - Laura Ingraham, Busting the Barricades: What I Saw at the Populist Revolt (2017)
