Why are these liberal, sanctuary mayors so intent on making sure dangerous illegal immigrants are released back out into their communities?

Really…, I’m asking?

Do they have something against all of the legal, law abiding, citizens that live there?

I mean, not even the other illegals and/or criminals want a child molester running around.

acrime2 2

Why are these elected officials so concerned about illegal immigrants who can’t vote, who are also convicted felons, who also can’t vote?

It just doesn’t make any sense.

Who are these politicians representing?

Is the majority of people who live there that ignorant?

Apparently so.

Adam Shaw of Fox News reports that, “[Immigration and Customs Enforcement] ICE chief scorches Chicago mayor for glib response to latest sanctuary city horror crime.”

“In an interview with Fox News this week, the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ripped into Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot for her response to the sexual assault of a 3-year-old girl, allegedly at the hands of an illegal immigrant who had been sprung from custody by the city’s sanctuary policies.”

“The Democratic mayor had attempted to shift the blame to ICE in the aftermath.”

Ahhh yes, the old “trying to shift the blame game.”

acrime2 4

How, under any circumstances, could this possibly be ICE’s fault?

How, under any circumstances, could this possibly not be the fault of Chicago’s elected hierarchy and the local law enforcement who are willing to go along with these mindless policies.

The democrats have learned well from the originator of the denial strategy, former President William Jefferson Clinton, or “Wild Bill” as I like to refer to him.  He’s one of the original “Fondling Fathers,” along with Creepy Joe Biden!

Deny, deny, deny.  Lie, lie, lie.  Never, ever admit to anything or take responsibility for anything.

acrime2 6

‘“I think it’s the height of hypocrisy,’ acting ICE Director Matthew Albence told Fox News. ‘I can tell you, I’ve been firsthand trying to work with the city of Chicago for the better part of a decade to get them to cooperate with us so we can get criminals off the streets.’”

And we all know Chicago doesn’t need any help getting criminals off the streets!  (cough, cough, cough)  Ya, right.

acrime2 1

“The city’s controversial sanctuary city policies, in which local law enforcement ignore detainer requests from ICE that they be notified when arrested illegal immigrants are released from custody, have come under renewed scrutiny after one of those sprung from custody was arrested last month for allegedly sexually assaulting the 3-year-old in a bathroom.”

Ya think?

acrime2 9

“ICE had lodged a detainer in June against Christopher Puente, who has several felony convictions and a prior removal, after he was arrested for theft. But Chicago ignored the request and released him.”

acrime2 5

Why wouldn’t you ignore ICE’s request?  Mr. Puente sounds like an upstanding individual to me?

NOT!

“He was arrested again last month for the alleged assault. According to ABC 7 Chicago, prosecutors said the attack happened after the little girl’s father took his son and daughter to the men’s bathroom at a fast-food restaurant, taking the boy into a stall but leaving the girl outside.”

“Prosecutors say Puente then motioned for the girl to enter his stall, locked it, held the victim by the back of her head and covered her mouth. They say the girl’s father heard her cries and frantically tried to open the stall — he was able to see her feet dangling off the ground. He eventually grabbed her legs and pulled her out from under the stall. The girl was later hospitalized.”

‘“They’re critical because we have said very clearly we are a welcoming city, a sanctuary city. Chicago Police Department will not cooperate with ICE on any immigration-related business,’ she [Mayor Lightfoot] said when asked about the case.”

So you can’t be a “welcoming” city without letting illegal immigrant criminals run free, committing crimes all over the place?

It sounds more like you’re creating a lawless crime zone as opposed to some kind of sanctuary.

acrime2 8

If I was that father, I would be looking to charge the city with aiding and abetting a felon in the commission of a crime.”

How can you argue that they didn’t?

How can you argue that the city didn’t aid this criminal in his escape from custody?

Actually…, correction…, if I was that father, Puente would be dead, and they’d be searching for the person who brutally attacked one of their sanctuary friends.

I feel the city and its elected officials need to be held criminally accountable for their policies when they harm the citizens they are supposed to be protecting.

‘“If ICE is complaining, then they should do their job better,’ she [Mayor Lightfoot] said.”

There’s her “glib response” for you.

acrime2 7

“For the mayor to sit there and say ICE should do its job better — we’d love to do our job better but we depend on the cooperation of other law enforcement agencies, just like Chicago Police Department does,” [acting ICE Director Albence] he said. “When they are working a case, they rely on the cooperation of other law enforcement agencies as well, that’s how law enforcement works — information sharing, intelligence sharing, and the sharing and pooling of resources.”

“He went on to note that it is the latest in a string of violent crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants who were released from custody despite ICE detainers. The Trump administration has sought to bring attention to other cases too, including the sexual assault and murder of a 92-year-old woman in New York City earlier this year. The granddaughter of the victim blamed the sanctuary policies specifically for her death.”

In the old days, democrats used to pretend to be tough on crime when they were running for office and then pull a 180 once they got elected.

Nowadays, they proudly declare they’ll be soft on crime in order to get elected in these confused, liberal, dens of inequity.

‘“We have seen time and time again, unfortunately, way too many tragic circumstances like this poor 3-year-old kid who is going to suffer trauma for the rest of her life as a result of Chicago not turning this criminal over to us when we asked for him last year,’ Albence told Fox News.”

‘“When they make policies that prevent ICE from doing its job, they have gotten involved in immigration law enforcement, they’ve gotten involved in impeding immigration law enforcement,’ he said. ‘They’ve made a determination that their political aspirations are more important than the safety of their constituents.’”

Even though President Trump has taken steps towards limiting federal funding to these cities, he should start getting really serious and direct the Department of Justice to start pressing federal charges against these elected partners in crime.

I can see in my crystal ball…, yes…, it’s becoming clearer…, I see improved cooperation between sanctuary cities and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)!  

But why the sudden change of heart by all of these sanctuary liberal strongholds?

Well, according to Jonathan Stempel of Reuters News Service, “President Donald Trump’s administration can withhold millions of dollars in law enforcement funds from states and cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, a U.S. appeals court ruled on Wednesday.”

Ohhh, that’s why!

afunds 7

Now we’ll see how much federal money these liberal sanctuary cities are willing to do without.

I believe we’ll see a shining example here of how “money talks and BS walks!”

“The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan was a victory for [President] Trump in his years-long fight with so-called sanctuary jurisdictions.”

“It overturned a lower court ruling directing the release of federal funds to New York City and the states of New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington.”

“The states and cities sued over a 2017 policy conditioning receipt of the funds by state and local governments on their giving federal immigration officials access to their jails, and advance notice when immigrants in the country illegally are being released from custody.”

afunds 8

Just to let you know, if you’re not already aware, the democrats in this country have been influencing behavior, by cities and the states, with the promise of or the withholding of federal money for decades.

It is almost comical that they chose to sue the federal government over doing the same thing they themselves have used to their benefit without question.

afunds 13

“Wednesday’s decision sets up a possible appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, which often resolves legal disputes that divide lower courts.”

Ha!  Good luck with that appeal!

“A U.S. Justice Department spokesman called the decision a ‘major victory for Americans’ in recognizing Attorney General William Barr’s authority to ensure that grant recipients do not thwart federal law enforcement priorities.”

afunds 5

It is a major WIN for American across the country.

Are you tired of winning yet?

I know I’m not!

afunds 12

“His [President Trump’s] battle against Democratic-led ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions focuses on laws and policies making it harder for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to find and arrest immigrants they consider deportable.”

afunds 2

afunds 6

“U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos in Manhattan in Nov. 2018 declared the conditions unconstitutional, saying the administration acted arbitrarily and capriciously in withholding grants without considering the impact on local law enforcement.”

“Acted arbitrarily and capriciously?”  Oh, you mean like when local police let dangerous criminal back out into their communities with no concern about the safety of their citizens, Judge Ramos?

afunds 10

“[The DOJ], however, said the conditions ‘help the federal government enforce national immigration laws and policies supported by successive Democratic and Republican administrations.’”

Like I said earlier, the democrats in this country have been influencing behavior, by cities and the states, with the promise of or the withholding of federal money for decades and decades.

Karma’s a b…h, ain’t it!

And, “what goes around comes around!”

WINNING!

The Coronavirus, Mexico and illegal immigration.

acorona 2

Right now, the coronavirus is not a problem in Mexico.

There have been some suspected cases, but nothing confirmed.

But what if the virus spreads to Mexico?

Better said, what about WHEN the virus spreads to Mexico…, because you know it will.

Then how will democrats spin their love of illegal immigration?

acorona 6

Even though President Trump has managed to greatly reduce illegal immigration from Mexico, there is still an average of over 30,000 illegal immigrants crossing over into our country on a monthly basis.

acorona 7

That’s over 30,000 people, A MONTH, just walking into our country, unscreened for the coronavirus, or any other virus or disease for that matter.

When the virus starts showing up in Mexico, that’s when we’ll really see the effects of not being able to control our borders.

I’m sure President Trump will ask for the means to exert additional control over the border (which would be a completely reasonable and appropriate request), and I’m sure the democrats will fight him every step of the way on this.

acorona 8

We already understand that democrats have NO concern for the safety of American citizens when it comes to illegal immigrants…, so I’m sure passing the coronavirus onto us all (but not them of course) won’t bother them at all.

acorona 3

I can hear all of the democrats now…

“Donald Trump is to blame!”

Donald Trump is just using the coronavirus as an excuse to expand his racist border practices.”

acorona 12

“Immigrants (referring to illegal immigrants) have a right to the best treatment for the virus, just like American citizens.”

acorona 10

“It isn’t right to discriminate against individuals who are sick by no fault of their own.

“We are a caring nation and we shouldn’t turn anyone away for any reason.”

acorona 5

Keep your ears open and see how long it takes to start hearing comments like these from the democrats and their co-conspirators in the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

The Statue of Liberty says, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”

It doesn’t say anything about sending your sick people here!

Especially your sick people who have the potential of spreading an epidemic across our country and killing thousands, perhaps millions of Americans.

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.

Apparently, L.A. isn’t on-board with California’s “sanctuary” and “open border” policies.

A recent headline by Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News read, “Border War: Los Angeles officials clash with burbs over homeless ‘dumping’”

“Border war?”

How can you be embroiled in a “border war” if you don’t believe in the concept of borders?

LA 12

LA 1

At least that’s what I’ve been hearing from all of your liberal representatives back in Washington.

They’re calling the situation there a “crisis.”

I’ll tell you what L.A., when you decide to recognize we have a crisis on the southern border, we’ll consider recognizing your “crisis.”

Until then, I’d have to say that your “crisis” is manufactured.

LA 11

I’d have to say the only “crisis” you have there is a crisis in leadership.

Does any of this sound familiar?

It should.

Because we hear these kind of comments regarding illegal immigration on our southern border, on a daily basis, from democrats and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

LA 10

You’re also claiming the suburbs there are “dumping” homeless people in your city.

Based on your welcoming nature of illegal immigrants into our country, you should be welcoming these people into your community with open arms as well.

You are a “sanctuary” city after all, aren’t you?

LA 8

If your type of immigration policies are good for our country, why wouldn’t they be good for your city?

Just sayin”.

O’Reilly continues by saying, “The debate over shelters and affordable housing is a much larger issue in California, but L.A. city officials say they just want their neighbors to follow the law and do their part.”

So the people in L.A. “just want their neighbors to follow the law and do their part.”

LA 9

Ohhh…, now they want people to follow the law!

Never mind their sanctuary policies that look the other way of the law when they release illegal immigrants out onto the streets as opposed to letting The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) know they have these people in custody.

Never mind their stances on illegal immigration that have no problem ignoring proper, and legal processes for people coming to our country.

Never mind their willingness to spend the money of U.S. citizens, intended to be spent on other U.S. citizens, on illegal immigrants instead.

You’ve got a lot of nerve L.A.

And your level of hypocrisy has reached new heights.

Please don’t expect any sympathy from the rest of us unwashed “deplorables!”

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 5

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.

pathway 3

This is what happens when the government doesn’t take care of its responsibilities.

According to The Constitution, our federal government isn’t really specifically tasked with a lot…, but in Article 1, Section 8, Item 1 it states: “The Congress shall… provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States…”

When citizens feel threatened and the federal government is not providing the proper laws…, enforcing the laws…, or generally protecting or providing “domestic tranquility,” “the common defense,” “the general Welfare,” and “the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” people will protect themselves.

It’s the American way.

In this instance, a New Mexico militia group detained migrants, who crossed our border illegally, at gunpoint until the Border Patrol could arrive.

vigilantes 1

I would call these people heroes.

According to Danielle Wallace for Fox News, “An armed right-wing militia group operating along the U.S.-Mexico border posted several videos to social media this week, including one in which they held about 200 asylum-seeking migrants at gunpoint near Sunland Park, N.M., until U.S. Border Patrol agents arrived, according to a report.”

Before we proceed, let’s put this reporting in the proper perspective.

Okay, Danielle.  First off, I have an issue with you when you label these people as “an armed right-wing militia group.”  Can’t we just say they are a militia group or a group of vigilantes?  Do we ever see any other groups labeled as “left-wing” groups?  No…, we don’t.

Second of all, the people that were held are described as “asylum-seeking migrants.”  The truth is you really have no idea who all of these people are or what they want, and you left out the word “ILLEGAL.”  These are ILLEGAL immigrants who crossed our southern border ILLEGALLY.

Okay…, that being said…, let’s continue.

“The militia group, which calls itself the United Constitutional Patriots, said, ‘… it is determined to monitor the border until President Trump fulfills his campaign promise of a border wall or until Congress enacts stronger legislation to make it more difficult for migrants to request asylum,’ Jim Benvie, a spokesman, told The New York Times in a phone interview.”

‘“It should go without saying that regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone,’ the governor of New Mexico, Michelle Lujan Grisham, said in a statement to The New York Times, adding that it is ‘completely unacceptable’ that migrants be ‘menaced or threatened’ upon entering the U.S.”

“The American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement that ‘the Trump administration’s vile racism’ emboldened these groups.”

“Carlos A. Diaz, a spokesperson for Customs and Border Protection, would not divulge specific details about the scene in the video or about the United Constitutional Patriots, but said in a statement that Border Patrol ‘does not endorse private groups or organizations taking enforcement matters into their own hands.’”

Well Ms. Michelle Lujan Grisham…, let’s begin with you.

It does not “go without saying that regular citizens have no authority to arrest or detain anyone.”  In fact, in the nearby illegal immigrant friendly state of California, in section 837 of the California Penal Code, it says, “A private person may arrest another: For a public offense committed or attempted in his/her presence.  When the person arrested has committed a felony, although not in his/her presence.  When a felony has been in fact committed, and he or she has reasonable cause for believing the person arrested to have committed it.”

So, no, Ms. Michelle Lujan Grisham…, it does not go without saying.

In addition, you continue by saying that, “it is completely unacceptable that migrants be menaced or threatened upon entering the U.S.”  But apparently it is acceptable that some of these (and she left out the word ILLEGAL as well) migrants go on to “menace” and “threaten” law-abiding U.S. citizens.

vigilantes 2

vigilantes 3

vigilantes 4

In my opinion, you are a disgrace of a governor Ms. Michelle Lujan Grisham, and the state of New Mexico should be ashamed for having elected you.

I guess, in the end, people get what they deserve.  Good luck with that New Mexico.

Then we have The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) saying in a statement that “the Trump administration’s vile racism” has emboldened these [militia] groups.”

The ACLU has already lost any semblance of credibility it may have had at one time…, but in response I would like to say that the inaction of the U.S. Congress and many prior presidents, along with the actions of many of the current democrat politicians and their supporters, has emboldened these illegal immigrants to put unprecedented pressure on our southern border.

There is no racism being demonstrated here.  Being “illegal” is not a matter of race…, it’s a matter of law.

vigilantes 6

Lastly we have a spokesperson for Customs and Border Protection, Carlos A. Diaz, saying that the Border Patrol “does not endorse private groups or organizations taking enforcement matters into their own hands.”

With all due respect…, and I am saying “with all due respect,” Mr. Diaz, patriotic citizens of this country don’t need your endorsement…, and these patriots only “take matters into their own hands” when the government is not taking care of their business for one reason or another.

Hard working, God fearing, Americans don’t need these politicians who have their heads up their backsides to figure out what’s right and what’s wrong…, we already know.  We just hope they figure it out sooner than later.

vigilantes 5

Until that time these patriots will just have to help them do their job…, for their own sakes and ours.

WINNING!

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.

Crisis?  What crisis?

The democrats are always crying that “this” is a crisis and “that” is a crisis.  But when they are asked to acknowledge and deal with a real crisis they choose to take the political low road, stick their heads in the sand, and not only pretend like there is no crisis, but denounce those who call a situation for what it is and attempt to do something about it.

Even though the democrats chose to ignore her last report and actually walk out of her presentation, The Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, was back again and issued a dire assessment of the migration crisis on the southern border, telling a House committee that illegal immigration is “spiraling out of control” and predicting that crisis will “get even worse” in the coming months.

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) is warning that the Border Patrol is at its ‘breaking point’ as apprehensions skyrocket.  Children and families now make up more than half of those in custody on the southern border, according to Customs and Border Patrol.”

“Secretary Nielsen also said in a startling revelation that, ‘Customs and Border Protection is on track to apprehend almost 1 million illegal immigrants at the border this year.’”

‘“In February, we saw a 30 percent jump over the previous month, with agents apprehending or encountering nearly 75,000 aliens,’ Nielsen told the House Committee on Homeland Security. ‘This is an 80 percent increase over the same time last year. And I can report today that CBP is forecasting the problem will get even worse this spring as the weather warms up.’”

‘“We want to strengthen legal immigration and welcome more individuals through a merit-based system that enhances our economic vitality and the vibrancy of our diverse nation. We also will continue to uphold our humanitarian ideals,’ she said. ‘But illegal immigration is simply spiraling out of control and threatening public safety and national security.’”

Shaw adds that, “Nielsen’s testimony came a day after the Trump administration released figures showing that more than 2,000 migrants are apprehended each day, a total of 268,000 since the beginning of the fiscal year. DHS reports that the Border Patrol is apprehending illegal immigrants at the highest rate since 2007.”

And remember…, we’re only talking about those we caught.  How many illegal immigrants are coming across that we don’t even know about?

Two times as many?

Three times as many?

Five times as many?

Ten times as many?

Think about it.

How many people who are driving drunk actually get caught?

How many people who speed actually get ticketed?

See what I mean?

‘“We face a crisis, a real, serious, and sustained crisis at our borders. We have tens of thousands of illegal aliens arriving at our doorstep every month. We have drugs, criminals, and violence spilling into our country every week,’ she said.”

“Nielsen predicted disaster if migrant flows escalate: ‘Our capacity is already severely strained, but these increases will overwhelm the system entirely.’”

‘“This is not a ‘manufactured’ crisis. This is truly an emergency,’ she said.”

The Border Patrol has reported a 300 percent spike in illegal crossings at the border, but the media is opting to turn a blind eye, since it just doesn’t represent the narrative they want to present…, that there is no emergency at the southern border, in the attempt to discredit President Trump and his determination that there is a national crisis on our southern border.

“Trump’s declaration would give him access to about $3.6 billion for projects on the border, but the move has seen fierce opposition from Democrats and some Republicans, several of whom are expected to support a congressional rebuke of the emergency declaration, which could, in turn, prompt Trump’s first-ever veto. The House has already passed the measure.”

“Meanwhile, in prepared testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said in testimony that the initial investments in Trump’s wall project were being put ‘to good use’ and barriers in key areas have ‘made an immediate impact’ in stopping illegal immigration in hot spots.”

But Nielsen’s comments seemed likely to be brushed off by Democrats…, again.  Before Secretary Nielsen even spoke, Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, a democrat from Mississippi, criticized Trump’s “non-existent emergency” at the border, as he parroted the standard democrat talking points while choosing to ignore reality.

Our democrat/socialist friends always like to point to Denmark, Finland, and Sweden as examples of how “good socialistic” countries handle these types of issues.  So let’s take a look at how these countries are dealing with the problem of illegal immigration.

Let’s start with Denmark.

Christopher Brito of CBS News reports that, “The Danish government has come up with a plan to send dozens of rejected migrants to a remote island that currently houses a research center conducting tests on diseased animals.”

Hmmm.  Well that sounds interesting. I’m skeptical as to whether anybody in the U.S. Congress would support these actions, however.

“Denmark’s government reached an agreement under its new finance bill for 2019 to decontaminate Lindholm Island, located around two miles from the nearest shore, and then use it hold as many as 100 people by 2021, according to a government website. Among the migrants who could be sent to the island are criminals, rejected asylum seekers and others who can’t return to their home country ‘due to the risk of ill-treatment.’”

“100 people by 2021!?”  The U.S. probably deals with 100 illegal immigrants on an hourly basis.

‘“If you are unwanted in Danish society, you should not be a nuisance to ordinary Danes,’ Denmark’s immigration minister Inger Støjberg wrote on Facebook. ‘“They are undesirable in Denmark, and they must feel it.’”

“It’s not the first time Denmark has taken controversial actions aimed toward migrants amid a wave of populism throughout Europe. In August, the nation banned garments covering the face, including traditional Islamic veils such as the niqab or burqa.”

Obviously we can’t model our handling of illegal immigrants on Denmark’s system.

How about Finland?

According to Virginia Hale of Breitbart News, “Police forces across Finland are carrying out a search for illegal immigrants in a six-day crackdown on aliens living in the country without permission, local media reported.”

“In the period between March 12 and 18, officers will be carrying out identity checks in public places such as restaurants and shopping centers where they suspect illegal immigrants are at large based on intelligence held by police forces in advance.”

Ha!  I know this definitely would fly in the good ole’ USA!

And the democrats are complaining about our own ICE agents in the United States.

“In practice, this means that when a person who is being checked turns out to be foreign, officers will check their immigration status and relevant papers,” said Finnish police chief Mia Poutanen.”

Around 3,000 illegal immigrants are caught each year in Finland as a result of targeted initiatives lasting several days like the one taking place this week.”

Wow…, 3,000?!  That many?  In a year?

In the U.S. we are dealing with that many illegal immigrants per day on a slow day!

Ok…, how about Sweden?  Surely Sweden can show us the way.

According to Johan Ahlander and Mansoor Yosufzai for “Reuters,” “Sweden has intensified its crackdown on illegal immigrants after a failed asylum-seeker killed five people in Stockholm, but the move has raised concerns that more migrants will be driven underground to join a shadowy underclass.”

“In the past months, police have staged wider sweeps on workplaces to check papers, netting undocumented workers, sending a warning to employers and sparking heated debate in a nation that has been traditionally tolerant to migrants.”

“Tough measures against immigrants go against the grain for many in Sweden, a country of 10 million (about the population of North Carolina) which once called itself “a humanitarian superpower” that generously welcomed migrants fleeing conflict in the Middle East and Africa.”

“But attitudes appear to be changing and a 2017 study by Gothenburg University showed 52 percent favored taking fewer refugees into the country with 24 percent opposed. Two years ago 40 percent backed reducing refugee numbers with 37 opposed.”

“The Social Democrats, the Sweden’s biggest party in every election since 1917 and leader of the governing coalition, has been forced to balance its traditional left-wing credentials with the need to enforce immigration laws.”

“The government never discloses how many are held in detention centers, saying there are about 360 beds and deportees are normally repatriated within three weeks. The government has told the migration agency to add another 100 beds.”

Ohhh the pain!  360 beds!  Oh my God.

Please note that the United States operates with over 40,000 detention center beds, and President Trump has asked for those levels to be increased to 52,000 beds!

“In 2016, police made about 1,100 unannounced workplace checks, almost three times more than in 2015, and caught 232 illegal immigrants.”

I believe we caught about that many illegal immigrants in one hour last year when we raided one company!

So not even Sweden provides us with a good immigration option.

The truth is, compared to any time in our past and compared to any other country in the world, the situation on our southern border with Mexico IS A NATIONAL EMERGENCY regarding illegal immigration, illegal drug trafficking, and human trafficking.  Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is just a disingenuous liar, plain and simple.
