Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured…but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. Many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance from those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens. —Ben Stein
Without borders, we have no sovereign nation. Unlike Obama who allowed every third world country illegal into our nation, we now have a President who told border agents not to allow illegals to cross into our country and our border patrol stopped them…so far. The National Guard has also been sent to the border but they have no legal authority, neither do they have weapons.
Caravan Stalled at Southern Border
The Caravan of Central American illegal aliens who have traveled the length of Mexico trying to reach the U.S. border to seek asylum is stalled. Today about 200 Central Americans await their fate. They arrived at the U.S. border on Sunday 29 April 18 only to find a closed door…for now. After days of legal counseling, the migrants hope to gain entry to file asylum claims saying they’ve been forced to flea because of violence and persecution.
Immigration lawyers claim America has a legal duty to hear the asylum seekers’ claims. Attorney Nicole Ramos told America media, “You are breaking the law and you are forcing them to break the law, that’s why we have caravans.” What hogwash!
Our President said, “We are a nation of laws, we have to have borders…if we don’t have borders we don’t have a country.” However, in an interview with Fox News, after touring the border, VP Pence signaled that migrants could eventually be processed. He said that when space opens up they will process asylum seekers under the laws of this country, but that these laws have to change.
Mexico Needs to Lose NAFTA
Mexico has done nothing; these people went all through Mexico and were never stopped despite Mexico’s very strict immigration laws. Mexico usually imprisons people from El Salvador and Nicaragua, or they deport them immediately. For decades Mexico has turned a blind eye to millions of their citizens illegally crossing our border, along with citizens from other countries. They show no respect for our laws, sovereignty, borders or citizens. Our President is absolutely right when he says this is an issue of national security and national sovereignty. Mexico certainly needs to be held accountable, and NAFTA should be dissolved because of this.
These illegal aliens get to our border, climb our walls, and wave their Honduran flag, and we should really believe they need asylum? What a joke.
Once they were in Mexico, who chose to admit them, they could have gone to the consulate and made their case. But that’s not what they wanted, they wanted only the “safe” country of America. Trying to pressure and embarrass us, Mexico created this problem. They should be made to own it.
DOJ Files Complaints
Fox News has learned the DOJ has filed complaints against eleven members of the illegal immigrant caravan for trying to enter the country illegally near San Diego. (We’ve been told by media that all of these people were “law abiding.”) Yeah right. Hundreds are still trying to enter the country legally by claiming asylum. Their advocates are complaining that the U.S. is moving too slowly to meet their demands. Their demands? Excuse the hell out of me, but they haven’t a right to demand anything.
And never mind the hordes of men seeking asylum, the media want you to believe our immigration laws are an assault on women and children. Just look at the photos of these people, all of them are dressed well, and many of the women are overweight. Who is funding their trek from Central America? Well, we know.
The caravan, organized by US-based advocacy group Pueblos Sin Fronteras, mainly comprises migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, the Northern Triangle of Central America. Some of them may be poor, but they have the support of major foundations, corporations and billionaire George Soros for their well-organized caravan-style invasion. Their work is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project, which includes the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, the American Immigration Council, the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. At least three of these groups are directly funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
There is a small army of attorneys who are advising the illegal aliens, most illegals are from Honduras but others are from other Central American countries as well. Most likely these attorneys are helping the asylum seekers simply game the system.
This is an orchestrated invasion of our country being coached by religious organizations, by Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), and by attorneys who are giving these illegals scripts for what to say in order to claim asylum.
Catch and Release
Former Pinal County Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu is a bit premature and overly optimistic in his description of the current policy on illegal alien squatters breaking into our country. He is claiming that George W. Bush’s “catch and release” has ended. It has not.
President Trump wants to change it but is being thwarted by the open border globalists in both parties. The President has said, “And so, we see not just ICE and the Border Patrol but also the DOJ under Sessions that are all working in concert to bring the full weight of what’s currently the laws on the books to bear.”
With that qualifier of “what’s currently the laws on the books,” Trump is admitting that “catch and release” is not ended and is still being practiced due to the fact that our laws require a 20-day maximum of holding cell time for family units.
If illegals haven’t been processed and deported back home by the end of 20 days, the border crashing lawbreakers are still being shipped off across the U.S. to compete with Americans for our jobs, at a greatly reduced wage. They suck up our welfare tax dollars every day that they’re in our country in violation of our laws. And they never show up for their appointed dates in court.
Build the Wall
The most recent estimates from the Center for Migration Studies indicate that 1.7 million aliens joined the illegal population from 2009 to 2013 and Pew Research Center estimates indicate 1.5 million — 300,000 to 400,000 a year. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates an additional 790,000 joined the illegal population since 2013 for a total of 2.5 million new illegal aliens since President Obama took office.
I’d bet these figures are far less than the number who have crossed our border illegally, especially with the amount of illegals who came in from Central America under Obama in 2014 and were transported all over our country and released.
It’s time for that huge wall to be built on our southern border.
CNBC said that Trump’s wall could cost $120 per household. I will pay for three, just tell me where to send the check. In fact, I’ll give back the extra we received because of the tax plan if he’ll just build that wall…and make it as high and strong as the one around the Vatican.
John Torres, Former Acting Ice Director
Torres appeared on the Ingraham Angle and said that what we’re looking at is fraud that has been perpetrated for years by a number of different groups when they coach people how to pass the credible “fear test,” so they can ultimately get political asylum in America. They plead their cases to a custom official and are then processed into the U.S. If you’re an unaccompanied minor, because of the Flores case in 1997, you are released into the country. And if you’re a parent of a minor, you’re released into the system according to two court decisions out of, guess where…the 9th circuit.
Congress has not acted on this, and that includes both parties, but mostly democrats have done nothing to secure our borders and protect American citizens from invasion. Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is trying to enact an amnesty before he leaves Congress. All but a few are false friends.
National Guard to the Border
President Donald Trump’s decision to militarize the southern border with Mexico was received with pleasure by the National Border Patrol Council, which called the measure the act of a leader who cares deeply for his country and its citizens.
The Nat’l Guard is headed to the border in a coordinated effort with the four governors of those border states. They’ll be in a support role, hands off – look, be seen, don’t touch…making the point that border security is homeland security, which is national security. DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen spoke to White House reporters about the plans to position national guard troops at the southern border with Mexico.
It’s definitely better than nothing, but not the line of defense most of us envision when we hear that the military is going to the border. The details haven’t yet been worked out, but rifles are pretty useless once our adversaries discover they’re not loaded. Nielsen told Fox’s John Roberts that the situation of Operation Jumpstart where the National Guard was not permitted to lay a hand on the illegals would likely be repeated, “as of now.”
Nielsen says the troops will be engaged in aerial surveillance and “support functions” like those conducted when Bush sent the guard to the border.
We can be sure that if the conditions are that the troops are incapable of a lethal or serious response, the Democrat governors of California and New Mexico will quickly make that information available to their smuggler and human trafficker allies. The number of troops sent are considerably lower than what Trump wanted.
AG Sessions Legal Actions
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is quickly building a legal wall to block asylum claims by illegal aliens in the caravan now sitting in Tijuana.
Donald Trump has tweeted, “Despite the Democrat inspired laws on sanctuary cities and the border being so bad and one-sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large caravans of people into our country. It is a disgrace. We are the only country in the world so naïve. Wall!”
The DOJ is sending more prosecutors and immigration judges to the border for what could be a long legal fight, not just for these illegal aliens but for hundreds of others arriving daily at the U.S./Mexican border. And well he should.
Now of course, our President’s proposal to use the military on our southern border is controversial.
Greenfield writes, “El Salvadoran migration has inflicted 207 murderers on this country. The migrant caravan threatening to invade this country includes migrants from El Salvador. Some of them may be MS-13 members. The Pueblo Sin Fronteras caravan of 1,000 migrants is the product of an alliance between international leftists and migrant invaders. Their goal is the invasion, colonization and occupation of America.”
Our border patrol is outnumbered and the establishment elite in Congress refused to increase them. It’s time for our armed military to again take up residence on our southern border.
Yes, we’re being invaded and it has gone on for decades. If the invaders were armed and in military uniforms, our reaction would be defensive. There’s no difference here as these invaders are aided and abetted by covert operatives using the “asylum” ploy.
President Trump took an oath to our Constitution, and he’s trying to keep it.
Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”
We need our fully armed military on the border to stop their illegal entrance into this country. “Build the Wall” wasn’t just a campaign slogan.
