Former Dem 2016 Candidate: Let 'Obsessed' Trump Build Wall If It Saves DACA

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) said it is "morally defensible" for Democrats to approve President Trump's planned border wall if it means protecting 800,000 DACA recipients living in the United States.

O'Malley said the wall is unnecessary and said the president has a history of "scapegoating" immigrants like those coming from Mexico.

But, he said that building a wall as Trump intends is small ball compared to his party's wish to give DACA recipients the ability to live freely in the country.

"I don’t think the people of the country believe that [the wall] is needed... But having to say that, if the trade-off for some legislators is that you have to accept Donald Trump’s obsession with his big wall, given the stable genius that he is, in order to make 800,000 people secure in their citizenship in the United States, I think that’s a morally-defensible trade-off," O'Malley, a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, said.

We need a wall to separate the Eastern Shore from the mess he made on the other side of the bridge! His policies are still costing us $

For the life of me, I cannot understand why FOX News would invite O'Malley. As Trump told O'Malley so eloquently during the Presidential debates, O'Malley doesn't deserve to be up on the debate stage AT ALL!! His track record speaks for itself, and even as Baltimore was burning down (O'Malley was off visiting Ireland) the Baltimore officals were telling O'Malley to stay the _ _ ll away - as he was part of Baltimore's problem.

There are approximately 330 million Americans. From that number there are approximately 50 million undocumented aliens (although IMHO I believe there are more). If the rest of America knows what's good for them they'll build the wall, otherwise, we'll become yet another 3rd world slum Country - and we are not all that far from that now!!! If the Democrats (O'Malley included) don't want that then it's our 'Red Blooded American Right' to see that they are removed from office.

Certainly wish there was a third choice. The problem isn't Democrat or Republican. They're all corrupt. The problem is power.

O'Malley is more of a con artist, look at what he did to Baltimore and then Maryland.
