Uniparty Eunuchs Unite Against Trump’s Emergency Order
In an act of betrayal against the American people and their own party, 12 Republican Senators joined with Democrats to overrule President Trump’s National Emergency order to expand the wall on our southern border.
Trump will simply veto this pointless and cowardly bill, and Congress now knows that it doesn’t have a veto-proof majority to override the president.
Why bother to stab America in the back in the first place, then? Meanwhile, the very real crisis on our southern border is worsening by the day.
Since everyone will ask, here are the 12 “Republicans” who decided that our southern border being wide open to drug traffickers, human traffickers, MS-13 gang members and garden variety serial killers is just fine:
Lamar Alexander (TN), Mike Lee (UT), Susan Collins (ME), Rand Paul (KY), Mitt Romney (UT), Marco Rubio (FL), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Jerry Moran (KS), Pat Toomey (PA), Roy Blunt (MO), Roger Wicker (MS) and Rob Portman (OH).
Illegal border crossings have doubled over 2018 levels and tripled over 2017 levels. DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen predicts that 900,000 illegals will breach our southern border by the end of this year. Why not a million?
If you think that 900,000 illegal aliens is not a crisis, here’s a quick question: Where would you like to put them?
Even if they are scattered to the winds across all 50 states, America doesn’t have enough housing available for this many invaders coming in, year after year.
The amount of housing classified as “affordable” in the US shrank by 60% from 2010 through 2016, according to federal statistics. And that was during Obama-era illegal immigration. Whether you’re an American renter or a homeowner, our wide-open southern border will impact you.
As demands for housing continues to outstrip supply, rents will skyrocket. In Los Angeles and San Francisco, two cities that have been the most welcoming to illegal aliens, a lousy and cramped apartment will run you around $3,000 a month.
And when you show up to try to rent an apartment, there will be a line of illegal aliens there ahead of you, each one with a Section 8 voucher in hand. Landlords get to choose between guaranteed voucher money provided by the taxpayers for rent… and you.
For homeowners, the value of your home will go up as demand for housing increases. That’s good news until you get the property tax bill.
One possible alternative is that the herd of goats and chickens that your new Honduran neighbors have penned in their front yard will drive property values down – but that’s probably not a favored option for most people either.
Meanwhile, the labor union representing ICE says that “catch and release” at the border has shifted into overdrive. The courts have ruled that they can’t turn anyone away at the border, and there’s no space to detain anyone else anyway.
Thousands are being captured every day, but there’s nowhere to put them. More than 2,200 are currently under quarantine with disgusting infectious diseases.
The rest are released to charitable organizations as soon as the Border Patrol can process the paperwork. From there, they’re shuffled off to pretty much wherever they want to go in the United States, despite having clearly breached our international border with Mexico.
And keep in mind: The 900,000 figure is only the ones that the Border Patrol will briefly capture this year before they release them. Many more will sneak in.
Video emerged from San Diego County this week of human smugglers dumping two small children over the shabby border fence. They dropped two little girls from El Salvador, ages 6 and 9, on the US side.
Border Patrol agents had to leave their patrol areas to go scoop up the kids. As they were busy doing that, 10 illegal aliens slipped across the border and disappeared.
Two innocent Americans were also killed this week while driving down the road in Texas. A human smuggler with illegal aliens in his vehicle was fleeing from police in a high-speed chase. Boom. Two more lives snuffed out.
In San Jose, a 24-year-old Mexican who had been arrested six times previously stabbed a 59-year-old American woman to death in her home. ICE had issued six detainers against the guy previously, but he had “sanctuary” to remain and kill someone.
How is any of this NOT an emergency?
