Don’t give in to blackmail over wall

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Ac­cord­ing to pub­lished re­ports, $5 bil­lion will only buy 215 miles of wall.

If the Democrats give the pres­i­dent the money in or­der to end the shut­down, what hap­pens down the road when he wants an­other $5 bil­lion – or more – for an­other few hun­dred miles?

The south­ern bor­der is al­most 2,000 miles long! Shut down the gov­ern­ment again? Then again?

Blackmail like this tends to be re­peated.
