UPDATE:

President Trump’s response to the Senate national emergency vote

Today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) signed a resolution to disapprove of President Donald J. Trump’s national emergency for the crisis on our southern border.

The President had a one-word response for the Democrat-led bill: “VETO!”

The stakes couldn’t be clearer, as Vice President Mike Pence laid out in an interview with Fox News. “A vote against the President’s national emergency declaration is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that’s happening at our southern border.”

This morning, three state Attorneys General explained the Constitutional authority President Trump used in declaring the national emergency. “Unlike President Barack Obama, who unlawfully used executive power to create new laws or rewrite laws Congress enacted, President Trump is lawfully using executive power to address a crisis worsened by CONGRESSIONAL INACTION,” Ken Paxton (R-TX), Curtis Hill (R-IN), and Jeff Landry (R-LA) write.

Top 5 Border Falsehoods Pushed by Congressional Democrats and the Media

Illegal immigration is not compassionate. It’s inhumane, unjust, and cruel. ~President Donald J. Trump

Left-wing Policies: ” [A] fervid but false solicitude [“compassion”] for the unfortunate over whom they thus gain mastery, and then enslave them. ~David O. McKay

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen spoke before Congress yesterday about the security and humanitarian crisis on our southern border. Acknowledging that such a crisis exists would make Democrats accountable for working with President Trump to solve it. Their leaders have already gone on the record to say they will not.

Instead, they hope to keep a lid on the ugly, painful truths behind America’s broken immigration system. It is important to set the record straight.

MYTH #1: There is no crisis at the border.

FACT: We continue to face a surge in illegal immigration that has brought the border crisis to a breaking point.

  • There has been a massive surge in illegal migrants arriving at our border, with more than 76,000 apprehended or deemed inadmissible at a port of entry last month—the most of any February during the past 12 years.
  • This fiscal year, U.S. Border Patrol has seen a 97 percent increase in apprehensions compared to the same time period last year.
  • Even before this recent surge, former President Obama called the situation at our southern border “a humanitarian crisis” as early as 2014.

MYTH #2: The problem at the border used to be much worse.

FACT: Today, we face an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants that loopholes prevent from being returned quickly to their home countries.

  • The makeup of illegal immigration has completely changed from previous years. Now, record numbers of family units and minors are arriving at our border, and legal loopholes force them to be released into the interior of the country. Human smugglers know this, and these criminal enterprises routinely exploit these loopholes to smuggle children across the border as leverage.
  • By contrast, in FY 2000, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) apprehensions were primarily single adults and, as such, 95 percent of those apprehended were repatriated within hours.
  • Apprehensions of family unit aliens and Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) have surged by 338 percent and 54 percent respectively this year.

MYTH #3: A wall wouldn’t help because drugs are coming through ports of entry.

FACT: Not only do we not know the amount of drugs smuggled between ports of entry, but building the wall will help free up more resources to seize the drugs coming in.

  • Obviously, there are more drug seizures at ports of entry that are manned by security than remote areas of the border with limited law enforcement presence. That doesn’t mean drugs aren’t coming in between ports of entry.
  • A physical barrier allows law enforcement personnel on the ground to carry out their missions more safely and effectively, preventing more deadly drugs and criminals from crossing our border in undermanned areas.

MYTH #4: Law enforcement such as ICE and U.S. Border Patrol are the villains in this story.

FACT: The real villains are the vile cartels and smugglers who exploit loopholes in our immigration laws for their own horrific gain. Law enforcement is the front line against them.

  • The brave men and women who enforce our immigration laws and secure our border are working tirelessly to keep our communities safe.
  • The cartels have devastated American communities with deadly drug supplies.
  • The smugglers who profit from our weak borders and immigration laws have subjected migrants to horrific violence and abuse. Our border officers are the ones fighting to stop them.
  • Secretary Nielsen testified on March 6 that law enforcement must give pregnancy tests to all migrant girls 10 years or older as a result of regular sexual assault from smugglers and others on their journey.
  • One-third of the women making the trek to our border become victims of rape or other forms of sexual abuse.

MYTH #5: President Trump’s executive action on the border is overreaching, similar or worse to President Obama’s.

FACT: President Trump’s exercise of executive power is categorically different from the kind President Obama used to circumvent existing immigration law. 

  • President Trump acted under the clear authority provided under the National Emergencies Act to address the crisis at the border.
  • This is the literal and exact opposite of President’s Obama’s orders invalidating Congressional statute. President Obama violated Congressionally enacted law by effectively awarding lawful presence to those living in the country illegally and granting them affirmative immigration benefits—contravening a variety of clear-cut provisions in the Immigration and Nationality Act (such as 8 U.S.C. §1101, 1158, 1226, 1229b, 1231, 1325, and 1326).
  • Beyond violating the INA, the whole thrust of President Obama’s action was to facilitate activity Congress had expressly outlawed (e.g., illegal entry, illegal work, etc.).
  • By contrast, President Trump is fulfilling his core Article II duties to enforce our duly passed immigration laws and prevent foreign nationals from violating those laws en masse. Whereas President Obama could not find a single statute authorizing his Administration to issue DACA/DAPA (because none existed), President Trump’s emergency declaration is an explicit and straightforward invocation of authority delegated to the President by Congress.
  • Far from unprecedented, 60 national emergencies have been declared since Congress passed the National Emergencies Act in 1976, and 32 are still in effect today. The President’s Emergency declaration enforces existing law and carries out his sworn duty to uphold U.S. sovereignty and national security.

 What about “put an end to stoppable crime and drugs!” do the democrats not understand?

Donald Trump: ‘Build a Wall & Crime Will Fall!’

Charlie Spiering

President Donald Trump tested a new slogan Wednesday on Twitter, promoting his idea to build a wall on the southern border.

“BUILD A WALL & CRIME WILL FALL!” he wrote. “This is the new theme, for two years until the Wall is finished (under construction now), of the Republican Party.”

The president commented as the partial government shutdown showdown continues into its 33rd day.

“Use it and pray!” Trump wrote, referring to the slogan.

Despite the president’s attempt to work out a deal with Democrats, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refuses to budge, demanding the president unconditionally reopen the government.

Trump said that Republicans were still united in the standoff.

“Great unity in the Republican Party. Want to, once and for all, put an end to stoppable crime and drugs!” he wrote. “Border Security and Wall. No doubt!”

Border Wall for Protection of Life vs Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigration

President Donald Trump made a moral and emotional case for border security and the border wall, saying in his January 9 White House speech that people build walls to protect the people they love.

“Some have suggested a barrier is immoral,” Trump said in reference to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments about the wall being an “immorality.” Trump continued with his fairness argument:

Then why do wealthy politicians build walls, fences, and gates around their homes? They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral is the politicians do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.

When Democrat leaders refused to listen, President Trump sent a letter to every member of Congress, detailing the border wall problem and solutions. President Trump is a man experienced in solving problems, instead of whining, lying, seeking power at the expense of the American people, and hate-mongering. The following graphics present the case for a border wall.

Exclusive: Chuck Norris lauds promising legislation that would fully fund construction

Make El Chapo pay for it

Chuck Norris

I have written many articles over the years, but I have never written an article more important than this one. While Democrat and Republican leaders in Washington are polarized and in gridlock over how to pay for a wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is a Lone Ranger with a Tonto-sized idea riding into town to get the job done in a way that would cost taxpayers nothing at all.

Because I live in the border state of Texas, it has made this issue even more personal to me. I also have many black belts that live in Mexico that are hindered by this crisis to even be able to visit the U.S. legally in order to attend our annual United Fighting Arts Federation (UFAF) Convention in Las Vegas.

On Thursday, a press release went out from Sen. Cruz’s office that was titled: “Sen. Cruz Reintroduces EL CHAPO Act.”

EL CHAPO is the nickname (“Shorty”) for the infamous Mexican mafia kingpin who is the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel and was extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering. He is presently on trial in New York for all these charges, where the son of the cartel’s co-founder just testified for hours against the drug lord.

EL CHAPO is also an acrostic for Sen. Cruz’s bill that stands for the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act. The full bill text may be viewed here.

The PR explained: “The bill would reserve any amounts forfeited to the U.S. Government as a result of the criminal prosecution of ‘El Chapo’ (formally named Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Lorea) and other drug lords for border security assets and the completion of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.”

That is why the U.S. government is presently pursuing the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion from El Chapo’s narcotic sales and other illicit profits.

So, does El Chapo have the money to fund our U.S. southern border wall?

Dolia Estevez, who covers Mexico’s billionaires, politics and U.S.-Mexico relations, wrote in Forbes: “The 33-page indictment against El Chapo, filed in 2016 at the U.S. Eastern District of New York, does not dissect the $14 billion. It simply says that upon conviction, the U.S. will seek forfeiture of any property or contractual rights derived from the continuing criminal enterprise, ‘including but not limited to at least approximately a sum of money equal to $14 billion in United States currency.’”

Border Wall Statistics, Border Patrol Victories

Heritage Foundation Report

@Heritage

 

.@CBP have seen a dramatic spike in illegal drugs at the southern border.

How bad is it? In 2018 they seized (or helped seize):

– 282,000 lbs of cocaine

– 248,000 lbs of meth

– 6,500 lbs of heroin

– 2,400 lbs of fentanyl—enough to kill every person in the United States.

These numbers highlight that the problem isn’t just with the illegal persons who are crossing the southern border but with the illegal drugs that are following the same path.

The Border Patrol agents are succeeding in executing a difficult job while dealing with a border that isn’t secured in the best possible way. President Trump is trying to change this.

Border Wall works against Illegal Immigrants; Saves Money

STUDY: Trump’s Border Wall Could Save $64 Billion Over 10 Years

Bob Price

 

A new study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reveals savings created by reducing illegal immigration through an effective border wall could save taxpayers $64 billion over the next ten years.

border-wall-immigrationEven a small reduction in the numbers of illegal border crossings could save enough money to pay for the estimated $12 to $15 billion cost of building the wall promised by President Donald Trump during his presidential campaign. The conclusions of the analysis by CIS’ Director of Research Dr. Steven Camarota are based on fiscal estimated developed by the Naional Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS). The NAS calculated the fiscal impact of impacts – taxes paid minus costs, Camarota wrote.

Camarota offers the following conclusions from his study:

  • There is also agreement that immigrants who come to America with modest levels of education create significantly more in costs for government than they pay in taxes.
  • A recent NAS study estimated the lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) of immigrants by education. Averaging the cost estimates from that study and combining them with the education levels of illegal border-crossers shows a net fiscal drain of $74,722 per illegal crosser.2
  • The above figures are only for the original illegal immigrants and do not include any costs for their U.S.-born descendants. If we use the NAS projections that include the descendants, the fiscal drain for border-crossers grows to $94,391 each.
  • If a border wall prevented 160,000 to 200,000 illegal crossings (excluding descendants) in the next 10 years it would be enough to pay for the estimated $12 to $15 billion costs of the wall.
  • Newly released research by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) done for the Department of Homeland Security indicates that 170,000 illegal immigrants crossed the border successfully without going through a port of entry in 2015.3While a significant decline in crossings from a decade ago, it still means that there may be 1.7 million successful crossings in the next decade. If a wall stopped just 9 to 12 percent of these crossings it would pay for itself.
  • If a wall stopped half of those expected to successfully enter illegally without going through a port of entry at the southern border over the next 10 years, it would save taxpayers nearly $64 billion — several times the wall’s cost.

The report of fiscal costs of immigrant border crossers is based on “net present value” (NPV). This process has a net effect of reducing the size of the net drain on economic resources based on their education level. “Rhe actual net lifetime fiscal cost of illegal border-crossers, given their education levels, is possibly $140,000 to $150,000 each in their lifetimes if the NPV concept is not used,” Camarota stated.
