The Washington Times (emphasis added in all excerpts):
“Border authorities are referring 50 people a day for urgent medical care, including tuberculosis, flu and even pregnant women about to give birth, a top official said Monday, saying it’s unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.”
“Most of those in need of care are children, and a staggering 28 percent are under age 5, having been dragged along for the trip by parents who in many cases are hoping to use the children as a shield against speedy deportation from the U.S.”
NOT A CRISIS?
Of the 60,000 illegal immigrants caught/encountered at border crossings in December, over 22,000 were kids. “Since Dec. 22 there have been 450 medical cases that needed treatment, including flu, parasites, blood infections, abscesses, tuberculosis and pneumonia…” How can this be defined as anything but a crisis?
President Trump has (rightly) demanded that Congress do their job.
Failing that, with executive action he must do what’s necessary to stop this madness.
Answer – when those 4000 homicides were committed by illegal immigrants.
As President Trump noted, over the last two years U.S. ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) officers arrested aliens responsible for over 4000 homicides.
But to Democrats, there’s no crisis here. Yet, over the last two years, school shootings resulting in 53 homicides (not counting the perpetrator) DOES qualify as a crisis?
It’s not an humanitarian crisis when they end their journey at the U.S. border…
…it’s when they START their journey.
Everyone knows luring women and children into danger is criminal.
But that’s exactly what the Democrat open-borders rhetoric does…enticing thousands of women/kids who will be used as emotional shields (or worse), and will be sexually molested and otherwise physically endangered along a torturous journey to the USA.
Clearly, open-border and sanctuary policies encourage such criminal endangerment.
It’s no different than online sex predation, or luring children across busy roads with an enticement of candy or toys…it endangers those who are enticed into bad choices…
…and should be prosecuted similarly.
As for the Left defining a crisis as the journey’s end, rather than it’s beginning, that’s like saying a child hit by a car was the crisis, but not the act of luring them into the road.
…are they saying sex assaults and physical hardships endured on the way don’t count?
Arguably, Obama stretched executive action powers thin during his 8-year reign.
And, despite incessant Left ranting that President Trump is similarly dictatorial, his speech last evening proves he believes in the Constitutional framework of government.
He didn’t threaten executive action. He didn’t threaten to declare a national emergency.
He called on Congress to DO THEIR JOB.
It’s a proven fact that physical barriers work – call it a wall, call it a fence, call it a barrier, it doesn’t matter how it’s described, physical barriers work. Any doubts, just ask Israel.
And the President’s right to point out that members of Congress themselves live behind such physical barriers…“They don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.” (bold emphasis added)
How is it that American citizens don’t deserve similar protective measures?
Liberals heads are exploding over our earlier blog ridiculing Democrat demands for ‘equal airtime’ to respond after President Trump addresses the border security issue.
Some are taking up the official Democrat meme that there’s no national emergency.
What’s not a national emergency that entails over 130k illegals arrested annually for physical crimes? 4,000 homicides; 100,000 assault crimes; 30,000 sex crimes.
Did we mention…THEY’RE ILLEGAL?
How is that any different than an invading force that attacks a Nation, kills 4,000 of its citizens, rapes 30,000 of its citizens, and assaults 100,000 of its citizens?
The only difference is they aren’t in uniform.
National emergency? You bet.
“Pelosi: I Get the Sense Trump Would Like to ‘Abolish Congress’“
Fact is, time after time the President has pushed Congress to do its job.
The border-security issue is a great example.
If he really wanted to bypass Congress, he could have done that a long time ago. His efforts to date have all been toward pushing Congress to act so he wouldn’t have to.
Prepare for confusion.
“Rep. Sherman Says Don’t Blame His Party Over False Flag Campaign Against Roy Moore” (For the uninformed, Rep Sherman is…a Democrat)
Then there’s this…
“Here Are The Obama-Era Officials Allegedly Behind The Alabama False Flag Campaign” (Lest we forget, Obama was, is, and continues to be…a Democrat)
Are we clear?
File this under…YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING.
The Daily Caller headline…“Schumer, Pelosi Demand ‘Equal Airtime’ To Trump After TV Networks Opt To Air Trump’s Address”
Since when does a Democrat have to force their media masters to give them airtime?
Truth be told, the media is probably demanding Schumer and Pelosi show up.
Think about it…what politician wants to argue AGAINST border security…in the face of rampant drug smuggling, sex trafficking, crime, terrorist efforts, and health concerns?
FakeNews tries to portray Schumer and Pelosi as eager to rebut President Trump’s address, but we’re inclined to believe CNN’s using a cattle prod on them to show up.
He’s outsmarted them again…forcing a televised national narrative.
“Democrats visit border station where migrant boy died, demand better care“
If ever there was an example of UNMITIGATED GALL it would be the Democrat Party…a party that endangers illegal migrants with their open-border rhetoric enticements.
They lure children into dangerous thousand-mile journeys, then when those children are afflicted by horrible conditions they’re subjected to because of Democrat enticement…
…Democrats cry crocodile tears.
“California to Purge 1.5 Million Inactive Voter Registrations”
According to this Washington Free Beacon article “L.A. County has a registration rate of 112 percent of its citizen population” and “The entire state of California had a registration rate of 101 percent of age-eligible citizens” (bold, u/l emphasis added)
Yeah, yeah…nothing to see here folks…move along.
