A small family-owned Christian grocery store in Southeast Arkansas finds itself at the center of President Donald Trump’s push for enhanced border security, which is being resisted by the Democratic Party at every turn.
Mac’s Cashsaver stores, which has four location in Arkansas, sent out a weekly ad mailer that included a humorous take on the issue of a border wall: “Heaven has a wall, a gate and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.”

The message easily lends itself to the open border stance taken by so many on the left, yet it prompted confusion from some customers, according to KARK.
“It just doesn’t make any sense,” customer Tyler Reede told the NBC affiliate. “Why would they put that on there?”
Other customers were fine with the message.
“I didn’t have a problem with it,” said Logan Reede. “If they want to come here, they can come here legally.”
Store manager Jack Digby said the message was from the owner, but said it was more about God than it was about a border wall.
“They’re just making a political spin out of it and getting the wrong idea of what it really means,” Digby said. “I am for the company and I am for God. There’s nothing wrong with what that statement says.”
Little does he know that when it comes to the progressive left, both subjects are off limits.
The issue of a border wall led to the longest government shutdown in U.S. history and may result in another shutdown at the end of the week as talks between the two parties have stalled.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been firm in resisting giving Trump the $5 billion he has requested for a wall, which the California Democrat has declared to be “immoral,” never mind that any number of Democratic leaders live safely behind walls in gated communities.
As a result, the left and their media allies have been painting anyone who supports a wall along our southern border to help stop the endless flow of humanity racists.
Naturally, the haters came out in force, condemning the store for expressing itself.
“Hey @MacsCashSavers, are you slashing prices at the stores yet? I get the feeling you guys will be shutting down tonight, tomorrow, or sometime next week,” a social media user tweeted, including the hashtag #closeasap.
