The son of former President Ronald Reagan issued a warning for President Donald Trump this week, telling the president that this is his last chance to get the funding that he needs to build the border wall.

“Hey @POTUS in 1986 my father made a deal with the Democrats Amnesty for Border Security my father is still waiting,” Michael Reagan tweeted on Thursday. “U have no choice its now or never. #BuildTheWallNow.”

“The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 allowed any illegal immigrants who had been in the U.S. since 1982 to receive temporary legal status and eventually become eligible for green cards if they learned English,” The Washington Examiner reported.

“The legislation also attempted to boost border security by increasing funding for the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the U.S. Border Patrol. … The measure also sought to crack down on illegal immigration by barring employers from knowingly hiring illegal immigrants.”

The number of illegal immigrants currently in the U.S. has more than doubled since 1986, from approximately 5 million to 11.1 million, according to The Washington Post.

President Trump announced this week that he would not sign a budget bill because it did not include funding for the border wall.

“When I begrudgingly signed the Omnibus Bill, I was promised the Wall and Border Security by leadership,” Trump tweeted. “Would be done by end of year (NOW). It didn’t happen! We foolishly fight for Border Security for other countries – but not for our beloved U.S.A. Not good!”

“Even President Ronald Reagan tried for 8 years to build a Border Wall, or Fence, and was unable to do so,” Trump tweeted on Friday. “Others also have tried. We will get it done, one way or the other!”

Trump’s announcement sent lawmakers scrambling as they tried to find a way to avoid a partial government shutdown.

The House of Representatives approved $5.7 billion for the border wall late on Thursday and the Senate voted in favor of allowing a vote on the bill, which eventually went nowhere.

Fox News reports:

The partial shutdown began at midnight Saturday, a few hours after House and Senate adjourned without getting a funding agreement to the president’s desk. The shutdown was expected to last at least a few days, with sources on both sides of the aisle telling Fox News that Washington could be in for a prolonged shutdown. The White House, however, was projecting confidence that they could secure a deal.

      Trump has $10 billion. Why doesn’t he pay for it? Or, why not get Mexico to pay for it—-which was his first proposal.

    Every congress person who voted against funding for the wall needs to be recalled. Then a Special election implemented to install a new congressperson who will abide by the Constitution and the laws of this country. Not made up illegal edicts.

      While I agree, it is not realistic in heavily democrat-controlled districts. When you have a high percentage of people with the same groupthink mentality voting against their own interests, you get the same results over and over. Some folks could be recalled, but most would be a fruitless effort.

    As you all can see the DemocRATS PROMISED action to fund the wall over 20 years ago and have reneged on that Promise they made to a previous President. Do not listen to DemocRATic promises, Actions speak louder than words. All Cotizens need to pull together to save this country. Mow is the time to start. FUND THE WALL. STOP ANCHOR BABIES and Deport any person who crosses the borders ILLEGALLY.

    God Bless you Michael Reagan, we should elected you to the U.S. Senate. We should replace Senator Schumer with Presidents Bush’s “Service Dog”, at least he understands loyalty to America. I hope the American People realize that just two years ago Obama, Hillary, Schumer, Feinstein and Pelosi all called for Border Security “THE WALL” and enhanced Immigration Policies. What happened? Nothing as usual for the Democrats.

    Stop the childish fighting you Democrats!
    Wait until an illegal criminal kills one of your family members, you’ll be screaming to build the wall.
    Building this wall is to protect American citizens. Just Do it.

      If it’s Congress House and Senate Democrats then we will save America from the Communist Party of Democrats, that would be a great start but Democrats realize that their future will Die a painful Death without Illegal Aliens voting Democrats, they swear there’s only 11 million here now but we know that figure is really over 30 million with the Majority in Kalifornia, Reagan is correct that it’s now or never, we’ll never get another chance!

    There you have it, “Do NOT ever give in and sign or give anybody ANYTHING without getting something in your hand that you can hang over them”…..Governments are good at giving empty promises, but NEVER have I seen anything so SHAMELESS as the DEMOCRATS…THEY most definitely take FIRST PRICE for NOT GIVING a HOOT on promises and other peoples feelings………But it was 1988 that Regan was promised that and we are almost over with 2018 that is NOT 22 years ago, but 30 years ago thst we were PROMISED that wall, and it has YET to MATERIALIZE, so WHAT is WRONG with THAT PICTURE?????

    I remember very well when the deal with President Reagan DIDN’T happen. The Democrats were liars then just like they are now. And it is because they lied then that we have the mess we have now. And the Bushes were no help. Since Jeb was married to a Hispanic, and HW Bush had little brown, as he called them, grandchildren, they didn’t want to do anything about the border either. This is really our last change to save the United States, or it will be just an extention of Mexico. And if you have ever been down there, you would know that is not what you want for the US.

    The drugs coming into this country from the southern border have killed more Americans than died in the Vietnam Nam war; the demorats hate Trump more than they care about their own people! Chuck the schmuck should hang his head in shame!

    Never, ever make an agreement with a lyin’ Dumbascrap politician and expect them to follow through with their part of the agreement. It will never happen…

    Why would the Dems vehemently resist the construction of an effective, physical barrier that would essentially SOLVE our southern border illegal alien, drug and human trafficking problem?

    The only logical reasons are:
    1) reduction of fake Dem Votes
    2) they’re being blackmailed
    3) they’re being paid off
    4) they are mentally I’ll

    No matter how we view it, the Dems (and maybe some Rino’s) that are involved must be removed.
