Where you won’t find Afghan Refugees. 

These are places in the United States where you won’t find Afghan refugees, or illegal immigrants of any kind, for that matter, who came over our southern border and were then shipped (viruses and all) all over the country, courtesy of the Biden administration.  

These places all have some things in common…, they are all favorite hangouts or getaways for democrats…, affluent democrats…, very affluent democrats.

Oh, and by the way…, you won’t see any of those green windmills obstructing their views in these places either.

So…, these rich democrats beat everyone else over the head if they don’t want to welcome these refugees and illegal immigrants into their communities, but these same affluent democrats aren’t leading by example either.  Another prime example of “do as I say, not as I do.”

You won’t find these unfortunate people being relocated to:

The Hamptons in New York State, living anywhere near Alec Baldwin, Robert De Niro, Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, or the Clintons, just to name a few.  

Vail, Colorado. 

Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, living anywhere near the Obamas, the Clintons, David Letterman, Chelsea Handler, or Rosie O’Donnell, just to name a few.

Palm Springs, California.

Aspen, Colorado, known as “mini Hollywood” or “Hollywood East.”

Newport, Rhode Island.

Nantucket, Massachusetts.

And last but not least, Malibu, California.

You also won’t find these people being relocated to our “President’s” place of residence, Wilmington, Delaware, or the state of Delaware for that matter.

You won’t find these people being relocated to the affluent neighborhoods where all of the Washington bureaucrats live either.

“What’s good for thee may not be good for me.”

It’s a two-tiered consideration system to go right along with their two-tiered justice system.

Maybe we could ship some refugees to Pedophile Island? At least the young girls!

CDC: The Center for “Demonazi” Communication!

Does anyone, besides “the Covid walking dead,” really believe anything the CDC puts out anymore?

That answer would be, NO.

It’s a shame, but the CDC has no real credibility left.

Who, besides “the Covid walking dead,” doesn’t believe the CDC is just another propagandistic and weaponized arm of the deep state, anti-America, government?

Who, besides “the Covid walking dead,” the “useful idiots,” and the generally ignorant, believes ANYTHING the government says anymore?

Now Illegitimate Joe and the corrupt CDC are preparing to implement vaccination requirements, more mask mandates, and even more potential lockdowns!

Anthony Fauci and the current head of the CDC, Rochelle Wolensky, apparently got their marching orders, and they’re prepared to lie, lie, lie, in an effort to support their Marxist actions.  

This while left wing district attorneys and liberal judges let the real criminals back out onto the streets without prosecution or being held accountable.

Here are some questions I’d like to see asked of Fauci and Wolensky:

How many people have been murdered in Chicago over the last few months versus how many people have really died solely from covid?

How many children have died from suicides, resulting from social isolation, versus how many children have died solely from covid?

How many children have died from receiving the vaccination, versus how many children have died solely from covid?

What health risks, besides covid, do our children face from being forced to breathe through a mask, for 7-8 hours a day?

Why doesn’t the CDC ever qualify their vaccination requirement remarks, regarding those who have had the virus, and thus acquired the virus antibodies and natural immunity, when the science shows natural immunity is much more effective against the virus than the vaccines are?   

Why are medications for cancer, heart disease, and diabetes not provided freely by the government, like covid vaccinations are, in the name of public safety?

These are just a few of the question that should be asked.

Why haven’t they?

We have the Biden administration, the CDC, and the fake news mainstream media sounding a national alarm about the dangers of the covid delta variant, and implementing all of these freedom limiting mandates for American citizens, while at the same time shipping thousands and thousands of covid infested illegal immigrants all over the country to spread the same virus.

It doesn’t make any sense…, unless you really don’t care about public safety, and all you want to do is perpetuate the virus so you can continue your policies of governmental overreach.

Oh, by the way, does the CDC recommend body armor to go along with the masks for Chicagoans?

Just sayin’.

Texas may have to go “maverick!”

Based on what the Biden administration is doing, regarding the border wall and their immigration policy changes, Texans are going to suffer safety-wise and economically, while all other state resources and services will be strained as well.  

So, what is Texas to do?

Do Texans have to sit back and accept what the federal government is imposing on them, or can they defend themselves?

Can Texans continue to build the wall that’s located in their own state?

Can Texans defend themselves by deploying their own border guards?

Can Texans refuse to allow a federal presence in their state, like federal troops were not allowed in Seattle, Portland, and elsewhere?

I wonder if these are questions that Texas’ Governor (Greg Abbott) and Attorney General (Ken Paxton) have been considering?     

Because it may be time for the state of Texas to go “maverick.”

It may be time for Texas to stand-up and tell the federal government that they’re not going to put up with their foolishness and disregard for the welfare of the people in their state any longer.

It may be time for Texas to tell the radical democrats back in Washington D.C. to go to hell, and “don’t mess with Texas!”

The choice is really quite simple.

Our presidential election is only a few weeks away. 

We have the choice between the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, and the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Yes, we have to vote for one of these two men, but we also need to consider what these two men represent.

Let’s review what you apparently support by voting for either the democrat/liberal, Joe Biden, or the republican/conservative, Donald Trump.

Democrats/liberals believe it is a woman’s right to abort a baby right up to the moment before birth.

Republicans/conservatives believe all babies have a right to be born and live. 

Democrats/liberals support defunding police departments.  All criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe if anything, police department support needs to be increased.

Democrats/liberals support taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Again, all criminals are fans of this!

Republicans/conservatives believe law abiding citizens have the right to protect themselves and bear arms, as guaranteed in The Constitution.

Democrats/liberals believe anyone from anywhere should be able to freely walk right into our country whenever they feel like it.  The drug cartels and human traffickers love this.

Republicans/conservatives believe our borders should be secure, limiting who can and who can’t come in at any given time, while affording us an orderly and managed legal immigration process.

Democrats/liberals believe in tearing down monuments to our history as a country.

Republicans/conservatives believe in honoring and learning from our history, not trying to erase it.

Democrats/liberals support “sanctuary” cities and states, where illegal immigrants can live without fear of being taken into Federal custody and charged with crimes or be deported.

Republicans/conservatives believe illegal immigrants are “illegal” and are here illegally, and should be treated as such. Republicans/conservatives also believe that the concerns of legal citizens should come before those of illegal immigrants.  

Democrats/liberals support raising taxes across the board.  They claim working class people won’t be affected, but we all know higher tax rates for companies and corporations are just passed down to us.

Republicans/conservatives support the continued reduction of taxes across the board.

Democrats/liberals immediately take money from the military at their earliest opportunity, weakening our nation’s defense.

Republicans/conservatives believe a strong military is an absolute necessity in today’s global environment.  The defense of our country is also the federal government’s primary responsibility per The Constitution.

…   

Democrats/liberals love implementing a seemingly never-ending list of federal regulations designed to suffocate construction, business operations, and whatever else they can think of to stifle our civil liberties.

Republicans/conservatives believe some regulations are necessary, but that less regulation is preferable in order promote businesses and maintain a strong economy.  

… 

Democrats/liberals feel it is a good idea to allow anyone living in our country to vote, regardless of whether they are here legally or not, and regardless of whether the voter has any proper ID to prove who they are.  

Republicans/conservatives believe only legal citizens should be allowed to vote, and that an ID should be required.

Democrats/liberals believe that government should be the “end all be all” for anyone living in America.

Republicans/conservatives believe that government is a “necessary evil,” and that most things are done more efficiently and cheaper by the private sector.

Democrats/liberals believe in a person’s dependence on government, and that having some form of a socialist government is more desirable that our capitalist system, even though no socialist government in the past can be pointed to as a successful government.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in our capitalist way of doing things, providing for ourselves as a rule, and system which allows individuals to rise to any level of success, dependent on the individuals’ desire to attain it.

 … 

Democrats/liberals believe in free speech as long as your speech agrees with their beliefs, if not, they have no problem with censoring or silencing you.  

Republicans/conservatives believe in the 1st Amendment, and that everyone has a right to their own opinions and that they have a right to voice those opinions. 

Democrats/liberals believe rioting, burning, and looting are acceptable forms of “peaceful protesting.”  They believe in deferring to the desires of “the mob” as opposed to following the law.

Republicans/conservatives believe in law and order, and that no one has the right to harm other people or their property as part of their “protest.”

Democrats/liberals prefer to operate in a way that highlights a person’s racial identity, gender identity, or sexual preference above all else…, except their political leaning.  

Republicans/conservatives prefer to identify people by the quality of their character and by their actions and beliefs, without concern for race, color, or creed.

Democrats/liberals believe the United States’ industry, people and economy need to be punished and restricted due to “climate change,” while the rest of the world is allowed to keep right on polluting and taking advantage of us.

Republicans/conservatives believe if “climate change” is real, it wasn’t caused by us and we have no real way of affecting “climate change” one way or the other.

Democrats/liberals believe fossil fuels are evil and need to be done away with.  

Republicans/conservatives believe fossil fuels are still the energy souce of choice right now, at least until other options become viable. Republicans/consrvatives like the US having energy independence, not having to rely on the Middle East for anything, contolling our own energy pricing.

Democrats/liberals believe it’s okay for the “media” to operate as an arm of the democrat party, reporting only things that support their narrative, while attacking republicans/conservatives, and especially President Trump on a daily basis.  

Republicans/conservatives believe the “media” should report from an unbiased point of view, acting as a watchdog against all government improprieties, regardless of which party it is. 

And what about the economy?

Democrats/liberals point to the economy after China, and the democrats I believe, dropped the coronavirus bomb on us.  

Republicans/conservatives point the hottest economy in history, prior to the China virus, and believe President Trump can get our econmy humming again. Without the release of “The virus,” the democrats would not have stood a chance in this election.  

So, like I said in the beginning, “The choice is really quite simple.”  

The differences between democrats/liberals and republicans/conservatives have never been more obvious. 

The question is which side are you on?

If you’re having a hard time deciding who to vote for, you are obviously one confused individual!

There should be no undecided voters at this point. 

If you really are undecided, then maybe you shouldn’t even bother voting.

Just sayin’.

Two ideas, regarding immigration problems, which make too much sense to ever happen!

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!

A couple politicians have actually been discovered using their heads and coming up with some creative ideas!

Imagine that?

This is the kind of stuff that could start giving politicians a good name!

The first idea was proposed by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

His idea is to use confiscated drug money to help build the wall on our southern border with Mexico…, since the Democrats in Congress can’t see fit to allocate any money for this endeavor, even though President Trump was elected amid cries at his rallies to “BUILD THAT WALL!”

ideas 8

Dominick Mastrangelo of The Washington Examiner reported that “Ted Cruz wants to use money from the ‘El Chapo’ drug empire to ‘build the wall!’”

ideas 1

“The reparations to the U.S. taxpayer are justified, prosecutors said, because Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman acquired his billions as part of his drug empire that directly led to the death of thousands of drug-addicted Americans and victims of violent drug-related crime.”

ideas 2

I would say that “reparations” by Guzman are not only justified…, they should be considered a small and required attempt at compensation for all of the suffering he has caused.

“Prosecutors stated Guzman can pay the sum because ‘criminal forfeiture is viewed as part of the sentencing process,’ according to Newsweek.”

“After a lengthy trial, Guzman was found guilty on multiple drug-related felonies and will likely face life in prison.”

Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama also deserves some credit for introducing legislation earlier in the year, “that would reserve up to $14 billion seized from ‘El Chapo’ for the construction project.”

‘“People across the United States are desperate for a sign that Washington is ready and willing to protect them from dangerous criminals and porous borders,’ Cruz wrote a month later in an op-ed for the Washington Post. ‘Congress has two clear mandates from the American people: secure the border and save money. So let’s build a wall, and make El Chapo pay for it.’”

Absolutely…, who could argue with that?

The second idea was proposed by Representative Lance Gooden from Texas.

ideas 3

His idea is to use DNA testing to aid border officials in determining whether children are really with their families, or being used by child traffickers to get across the border.

Brilliant!

Adam Shaw of Fox News reported that, “Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas., introduced the End Child Trafficking Now Act on Monday. The bill would implement DNA testing at the border, and punish those caught trying to cheat the system with up to 10 years in prison.”

I’d say 10 years would be a good start.

“The proposal comes in response to growing awareness of the fraudulent use of children by adult migrants to gain access to the U.S. The 1997 Flores court settlement limits how long children can be held in custody to just 20 days, meaning that adult migrants claiming to be family members will also be released into the homeland as their asylum cases are considered.”

ideas 4

‘“Unfortunately we see that all too often now … adults that are bringing children with them that are not their own to try and take advantage of what they perceive as a loophole in our law that would allow them to be released into the United States,’ Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan told the House Oversight Committee last week, as he described how a DNA test helped thwart one migrant who allegedly ‘bought’ a child in a bid to exploit loopholes.”

‘“We’ve had egregious cases, including a 51-year-old man who bought a six-month child for $80 in Guatemala and admitted that when confronted with a DNA test by a Homeland Security Investigations agent conducting a pilot at one of our border stations,’ he said.”

“He also testified about the problem of ‘child recycling’ that authorities were investigating, where children are used multiple times to get adults into the U.S.”

ideas 5

‘“There are one in five cases, according to ICE, of groups of people coming over with children, saying “these are our children” — when they say that they get preferential treatment through the asylum process — and then we have later found out they are not even related, so the DNA testing helps us to determine if they’re telling the truth or not,’ Gooden told Fox News.”

“Tests would consist of mouth swabs similar to those already in use by the State Department. The agency says that such tests are 99.5 percent accurate.”

Representative Gooden added, “I would be shocked to hear of anyone being opposed to preventing child trafficking, but I’ve been shocked before.”

Yes…, I’m afraid we’re all getting used to being “shocked” by how low and by how political some of our democrat friend will stoop.

You have to wonder sometimes if these loopholes are really loopholes, or if these ways of beating the system were intentionally built into the law?

Some people might be surprised by that accusation, but the law is there to be changed and corrected at any time, and Congress is refusing to do so.

Doesn’t their inaction indicate that they are okay with what’s happening with these children at the border?

What else could their inaction indicate?

ideas 6

Like I said in the beginning…, these are two ideas which make way too much sense to ever happen.

You want to shame US border agents?  That’s the real shame. 

According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “New York Times op-ed writer calls for public shaming of US Border Patrol agents.”

Ahh yes, “the failing” New York Times, as President Trump likes to say.

border 3

“A human rights professor called for the identities of U.S. Border Patrol agents to be made public so they can be ‘shamed’ for the mistreatment of migrants, saying a ‘mass atrocity’ may be taking place.”

border 2

“Kate Cronin-Furman, an assistant professor of human rights at University College London, wrote in the New York Times over the weekend that Border Patrol and other federal agents must be pressured into ending their participation.”

border 1

Okay…, I’ve got all kinds of problems with this guest op-ed writer.

First of all, she’s not even from the United States!

Second of all, she’s a college professor, an assistant professor actually, a profession otherwise known as a liberal activist and propagandist!

And lastly, she has a hyphenated name.

She wants to “shame” our border agents, as well as make their identities public, because of their “mistreatment of migrants?”

Exactly what kind of “mistreatment” are you accusing them of Ms. Cronin-Furman?

These agents are dealing with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants every month, and I haven’t heard of any cases of “mistreatment.”

They are just doing their job according to the law, as handed down by our dysfunctional houses of elected morons.

borders 9

In fact…, I hear more cases of them going above and beyond what’s required of them.

I would contend that our congressional representatives have a much harder time doing their jobs, while causing much more pain and suffering to actual American citizens in our country.

These aren’t mean people, Ms. Cronin-Furman…, not like you and your liberal propagandist friends.

borders 14

‘“The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable,’ she wrote.”

Oh really?  Could I just mention that YOUR personal information and the personal information of all of YOUR comrades is also “not undiscoverable.”

‘“Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos.  These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities,’ she added.”

Lawyers and “journalists.”  Now there’s a motley crew for you!

border 15

“Cronin-Furman claimed she was not making ‘an argument for doxxing’ but wants to see an effort to expose the ‘midlevel functionaries who make the system run.’”

What a disingenuous liar.

So you say you’re not making “an argument for doxxing,” but on the other hand you’re calling for the publication of their personal information.  What do you think doxxing is?

Just another typical fascist liberal calling out to other fascist liberals.

‘“The knowledge, for instance, that when you go to church on Sunday, your entire congregation will have seen you on TV ripping a child out of her father’s arms is a serious social cost to bear. The desire to avoid this kind of social shame may be enough to persuade some agents to quit and may hinder the recruitment of replacements,’ she argued.”

The problem is Ms. Cronin-Furman…, how do you know the arms the child is being taken from is their father’s arms?

Are you aware Ms. Cronin-Furman that it is becoming more and more common for children to be used just to cross the border?

Are you aware Ms. Cronin-Furman that in many cases these children are not traveling with their families?

So in all actuality, the picture you want to publicize is more likely to be a border agent RESCUING a child from a human trafficker or worse.

borders 5

borders 6

For someone who is an assistant professor of human rights, you seem more interested in promoting the liberal agenda than “human rights.”

borders 17

‘“For someone who is ‘just following orders,’ the prospect of being internationally shamed as a rights abuser and being unable to travel freely may be significant enough to persuade them to stop participating.’”

Wow!  You’re just full of great ideas aren’t you, Ms. Cronin-Furman?!

Again…, these border agents are just people doing their job, and it’s a dangerous job…, and it’s a thankless job…, and these media hustlers just want to make their job even more difficult, and expose them and their families to additional harassment at home.

According to American Military News, “During Obama’s two-term presidency, from 2008 to 2016, border deaths ranged from 251 to 471 each year. The 471 deaths occurred in 2012, and that is the second highest number of border deaths in the last 20 years.  In the first two years of Trump’s presidency, border deaths have actually decreased [per Border Patrol data].”

I don’t recall hearing any outage during Obama’s presidency.  I don’t recall hearing one word about it actually. Nothing.

So what changed?

We all know “what” changed Ms. Cronin-Furman.

We all know what changed.

And it wasn’t your concern about “human rights.”

And it wasn’t your concern about these migrant children and families.

What?!  The head of the Department of Homeland Security leaked information about their own planned raids?!

Who is this Benedict Arnold and why is he still employed?!

Brooke Singman, of Fox News, reported that, “Acting [Department of] Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan is being accused of leaking plans last week for scheduled Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, after expressing fierce opposition and allegedly ordering top officials to ‘stand down’ on the operation.”

“A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that when the operation was in its planning phase two weeks ago, McAleenan ordered ICE Acting Director Mark Morgan to call off the deportation operation that was expected to target 2,000 families in up to 10 cities across the country. President Trump, however, ordered that Morgan continue as planned.”

If this is true…, Kevin McAleenan should at the very least be fired, along with being charged with reckless endangerment of the lives of the men and women who are to execute these raids on illegal immigrants who had already been ordered to leave the United States. It is anyone’s right to disagree with any given operation, but it IS NOT anyone’s right to intentionally sabotage an authorized operation and place people’s lives at risk!

dhs 1

What is wrong with these people!

In the military, disobeying a direct order, especially from The Commander in Chief, would get you a court martial.

This is just another example of an unelected, deep state, “swamp monster” deciding to take matters in their own hands against the administration’s wishes.

dhs 2

 

I’m sure former President Obama is finding the whole thing quite entertaining, as these holdover traitors from his administration continually cause these types of self-inflicted embarrassments for the Trump administration.

It’s a shame, but it really can be avoided either.  You just can’t fire thousands and thousands of people from all of these different departments. The problem is that Washington D.C. is infested with liberals, and therein lies the problem. That’s “the swamp.”

Also…, saying that 2,000 “families” are being targeted is misinformation being used as a way of ginning up some level of sympathy for these individuals…, and that’s what they are…, individuals.  We have no way of knowing what their “family” situation may or may not be.

Singman added that, “On Friday, The Washington Post published a story with explicit details of the planned raids, citing U.S. officials familiar with the operation. The story, written by Post immigration reporter Nick Miroff, said the raids would take place before dawn, in major cities including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles. Miroff also reported that the planned raids would begin on Sunday.”

And everyone at the Washington Post thought this was a good idea as well?

Do you think The Washington Post would have printed the plans for D-Day if they could have gotten their hands on them?

This whole situation really makes me wonder.

Tom Homan, the former head of ICE, stated, ‘“You’ve got the acting secretary of Homeland Security resisting what ICE is trying to do,’ Homan said. ‘He does not support this operation, and I tell you what, if that’s his position, then he’s on the wrong side of this issue.’”

And that, I would say is putting it mildly.

“He noted that the leaked story ‘gave the location of the cities, the day this was supposed to start, how many targets’ and added: ‘This leak — which I know where the leak came from, I think we all know where the leak came from, that story only benefits one person — put these officers at greater risk of harm.’”

‘“To have somebody within DHS leak this information that would have put the general public, as well as our officers in danger—that is one of the most egregious leaks I have ever seen in my life,’ the source told Fox News, noting that ‘you can’t go forward with an operation once everyone knows the time, the place, the details. ICE officers and other law enforcement would have been put directly in harm’s way.’”

“Sources also told The Washington Examiner that McAleenan was behind the leak.”

If Kevin McAleenan was behind the leak, I would suggest to him that he not turn his back to any ICE agents if he happens to be out in the field for any reason.

dhs 3

The President has since announced that the plan would be delayed for two weeks to give congressional Democrats and Republicans time to come to a bipartisan solution on the border crisis. Trump warned though that if an agreement could not be reached, deportations would begin.

“The change of plans came after [President] Trump, earlier in the week, said that ICE would ‘begin the process of removing millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States.’”

dhs 5

Delaying the raids by two weeks was a good call Mr. President.  Not only does it put the onus back on Congress…, but it allows the administration time re-plan the raids, with an emphasis on keeping sensitive information away from these saboteurs and rats.

“DemoRATS” to be specific!

WINNING!

Let’s play a picture game!

I’m going to show you a sequence of pictures.

See if you can see something they all have in common.

flags 1

flags 2

flags 3

flags 4

flags 5

flags 6

flags 7

flags 8

flags 9

flags 10

flags 11

Well…, what do you think?

Yes…, these are all either pictures from “caravans” headed to our southern border or people attempting to enter our country illegally.

But…, the answer I was looking for is they all show migrants waving a flag that is typically blue and white.

No American flags, however.

The flags we see in these pictures are all from either Honduras,

flags 12

Guatemala,

flags 13

or El Salvador.

flags 14

The question is, why would you travel over 1,000 miles, on foot, to escape a country that is supposedly oppressing you to the point that you have to seek political asylum in another country, but then wave the flag of the country that you were forced to escape from?

If you desired political asylum from the United States, wouldn’t you be carrying and waving an American flag?

Wouldn’t someone…, anyone…, be carrying an American flag?

In fact…, I dare you to find a picture of migrants making their way to America, carrying an American flag.

These people aren’t  fleeing for their lives…, they’re fleeing for their wallets.

They’re fleeing to America to get on the gravy train…, not the freedom train.

It’s not that big of a deal I guess.  I just normally like a “kiss” before I get screwed.

Just sayin’.

President Trump should “trump” Congress over the handling of illegal immigrants.

As we watch yet another migrant caravan making its way toward the U.S.-Mexico border, and as we set new records of migrants crossing into the U.S. each month, I believe President Trump should leap frog Congress and propose a solution to this illegal immigration crisis.

The solution I am suggesting is definitely not the best solution, but it’s a solution that I believe could garner support on most sides of this issue.

pathway 1

It is widely accepted that our current border crisis “falls squarely on the hands of Congress,” according to the National Border Patrol Council.

Greg Norman for Fox News reports that, ‘“The record number of migrants coming to the U.S. border is no accident,’ National Border Patrol Council Vice President Hector Garza says.”

pathway 8

“The massive migrant caravan said to be making its way toward the U.S.-Mexico border is a result of Congress ‘not acting and continuing to encourage illegal immigration,’ according to a border agent and top union official.”

Garza also says that migrants are taking advantage of the way the U.S. immigration system processes asylum seekers in order to gain entry to the country.

pathway 2

“President Trump is doing everything in his power to be able to stop this crisis but Democrats and some activists are just doing everything behind his back to undermine his authority,” he told the hosts of Fox & Friends.

Realistically, and with there not being much hope of radically changing our current pathetic immigration laws anytime in the near future, we need to come up with strategy and a plan that is doable.

Will everyone love it?

No.

Will everyone hate it?

No.

So what is it?

Ok…, here we go.

First of all we have to face some facts.

There are currently tens of millions of illegal immigrants already in our country, with tens of thousands more joining them every month.

For the ones we actually catch crossing our border, our current laws don’t allow us to do much more than take their names, schedule a hearing date (which are backlogged for like 50 years) and let them loose into the country.

The ones we don’t catch (a number that is probably much greater than those we do catch) are just “out there” in our country doing who knows what.

We also have to understand that 99.9% of these illegals are never going to be forced to leave our country.

That is a fact.

Like it or not, they are here to stay.

pathway 6

So…, now that we have that straight, what are we going to do with them?

Is it better to leave them in our country with an “illegal” status, or would it be better to provide a helpful way for them to achieve documented citizenship?

The taxpayers of this country are paying for these people one way or another, so we might as well get something out of this deal…, right?

I believe President Trump should hijack this whole issue and turn it into a strength for him, conservatives and other republicans.

President trump should propose a “Pathway Force.”

This “Pathway Force” would be somewhere in between the AmeriCorps program and the Army Reserve.

By serving in the “Pathway Force,” these “illegals” earn their way to citizenship.

At a designated start date, all illegal immigrants caught coming into the country would be automatically “drafted” into the pathway Force.

Those illegal immigrants already in the country could “enlist” and take advantage of the opportunities and benefits provided by the Pathway Force.

The Pathway Force program would provide housing, utilizing military bases, provide English classes, civics classes, and train them to be a kind of FEMA response force that would assist in public works programs, emergencies and natural disasters around the country.

After four years of service in the Pathway Force they earn their citizenship and they can leave the force or choose to re-enlist.

Like I said, like it or not, these people are here to stay.

For the “Dreamers” and others who can document that they have been productive workers and law-abiding citizens for a given period of time, I would propose amnesty and a conditional citizenship to be certified after an additional five years of issue free living.

By proposing these type of actions, President Trump could co-opt all of these immigrants and flip them to Trump supporters.

It would be a beautiful thing.

It would be a better “gotcha” than “The Sting” or “Ocean’s 11.”

The President and conservatives have nothing to lose…, only supporters to gain.

pathway 4

Again…, remember…, these “illegals” aren’t going anywhere.

They are here to stay.

Now, with that understanding…, what are we going to do?

Let’s not bite off our noses to spite our faces.

Let’s be proactive and WIN this issue…, not continue to get beat up time and time again over it.

We’re sorry Mexico, but we have to fix the border problem one way or the other.

It’s become pretty apparent that as long as the democrats control the House of Representatives, the problems on our southern border and our problems with illegal immigration are not going to change.

If we can’t properly address these problems the way they should be addressed…, by fixing our own laws…, our only other option is to coerce Mexico into taking care of the problems on their side.

Mexico should be given six months to “seal” their side of the border.  If their results at that time don’t meet with President Trump’s approval, he should shut the U.S-Mexico border to trade and travel, until such time that President Trump is satisfied with their efforts.

This travel ban should include air travel to Mexico as well.

The threat of this economic nightmare for Mexico should be reason enough for them to do what is necessary, and to do it quickly, to make us happy.

This six month window would also give US companies with ties to Mexico the time to apply the appropriate amount of pressure on the Mexican government, as well as make any business related “adjustments” they may need to make, regarding a potentially closed border.

Elvia Díaz is an editorial columnist for The Arizona Republic, where her comments first appeared, before appearing in USA TODAY.  She feels that, “…shutting down all trade and travel would be disastrous for Mexico.  But the U.S. economy also would be hit hard, if not collapse.”

All the more reason that US companies and Mexico would do what’s needed to be done.

I seriously doubt our economy would “collapse” if we can’t have guacamole with our nachos for a month or two!

No matter what is done by our government, about anything, is never completely convenient for everyone.

Being a white, male, heterosexual, conservative, like I am…, I and all of the others like me have come to understand that we get NO level of consideration regarding anything.

This is one reason why our demographic group tends to have lower levels of sympathy for others I suppose.

Apparently Ms. Diaz thinks that our country absorbing the extensive costs to our social programs, our education system and our correction and law enforcement programs, incurred by the stream of well over 1,000 illegal immigrants a day poses less of an economic threat to us than closing the border with Mexico.

I’m willing to bet that an open border ends up costing us way more than a closed one would.

She continues by saying, “Many of these asylum seekers come from violence-ridden Central American countries.”

Would you like me to create a list of all of the “violence-ridden” countries in the world for you Ms. Diaz?  Would you like me to take a poll and see how many people in Chicago feel sorry for these “violence ridden” countries?  Let’s just say the list of “violence ridden” countries in the world would be quite long.  So the US should accept 5,000 “asylum seekers” a day?  10,000 a day?  25,000 a day?  Do you think they’d feel any safer if we sent a bunch of them to the projects in Chicago to live?

I have a feeling that Ms. Diaz would not be too eager to open up her own home to help accommodate some of these poor “asylum seekers.”  But she would be more than happy to overwhelm our country’s support systems, which are already overwhelmed and failing our own homeless and economically dependent citizens as it is.
