Letter to Democrat House Speaker goes viral

A group of border patrol wives whose husbands work on America's southern border along the banks of the Rio Grande have invited House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit Texas so she can see why they barrier between the U.S. and Mexico.

“We would like to show you around! You don’t need to bring any security detail. Our husbands/boyfriends/fiances/wives/significant others are actually very good at their jobs, thank goodness!” Jill Demanski wrote in the letter posted on Facebook.

“We'd also appreciate if you'd stop pretending that you care about federal workers. If you did, you would care for their safety, not just their paychecks. We can hold out a while longer if it means our husbands and communities are safer," Demanski added.

The letter, which was as posted a day before President Donald Trump announced a deal to reopen the government, went viral.

“I felt it’s really important to have our leaders come here and see what’s happening first. It’s important to meet with the people who are here on a daily basis, that are witnessing it – the effects of it, that it has on our country,” Demaski said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday.

“We want them to come here and make an informed decision and to see what’s really going on.”

According to Fox: A 17-person bipartisan committee of House and Senate lawmakers is expected to negotiate border spending as part of the legislative process.

It's unclear if Democrats will budge in their opposition to funding a border wall, while Trump said Sunday he doubted he could accept any agreement struck by congressional negotiators that gives him less than his requested $5.7 billion for the construction of a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Renea Perez, another Border Patrol wife, told “Fox & Friends” that, while the women feel safe in Rio Grande Valley, the men and women who patrol the southern border could still use some help in high-traffic areas.

“[A wall] will allow them to do their job more efficiently and give them more time – if they are by themselves – have another agent meet them. It is definitely needed,” Perez said.

“We just want them to come down there on the line and actually see where the argument is all about.”

She added the partial shutdown was very hard for the families of Border Patrol agents, who hadn't received a paycheck during the partial shutdown, and, at times, it felt like nobody cared about their community.

“It gets tough. The bills don’t stop. We were feeling like we were forgotten," Perez said.

Demaski said if Pelosi sees the letter and agrees to visit, she hopes the California Democrat will do a ride-along with border agents to see the day-to-day experiences of those on the front lines of the border issue.

“Border patrol and our agents and experts here have been asking for [the wall] for years,” she said.

“Now we have a president who has come here and seen first-hand the need and has had our backs.”
