This was capitulation to avoid the overwhelmingly negative press associated with the shutdown. I genuinely sympathize with those who were showing up for work with no pay. I thanked the TSA agents at the airports for showing up so I could do my job. But, the reality is that we will be watching a circus for the next three weeks as the debate over what kind or type of border security makes sense rages between the Democrats and our President. Handle it like a CAPEX project in business. Look at the cost and determine the realistic annual payback. If there is a three year or less payback on the $5.8b investment then do it. Grow up, do your jobs professionally, and stop worrying about polls or your media image.
