The ability for people to move between countries is essential. It is good for countries because it brings needed skills to the workplace and enhances economies. This benefits the whole world. Migration becomes a detriment to all when it is done for the wrong reasons. Those wrong reasons would be when it is done illegally, when it is done for illegal purposes such as to promote drug sales or other criminal activities, when it is done for the purpose of taking advantage of the generousness of nations, when it is done for the purpose of changing the culture of the nation accepting the immigrants, and when it is done with the intention of never assimilating to the ways of the country to which you are immigrating.
The immigration of people to the United States from Europe and later Asia would be an example of positive immigration. These people came to the United States with the intent of becoming Americans and participating in the opportunity’s capitalism presented. The people did not wish to take from the American people but wanted to contribute to what they viewed as their country. They did not wave flags from their former country nor did they spout slogans supporting their former country that denounced the United States. These people have become Americans and represent all that is good about America.
In the world today, we are witnessing the results of negative immigration. We are seeing this in the United States where the Globalists and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are supporting open borders. Open borders are supported as a means to an end and the end is to gain more and more political power that will enable the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to transform the United States from a capitalist nation to a socialist nation, to transform the United States from a free people to a people who are servants to the state, and to transform the United States from an nation built on the principles of natural law and adherence to Biblical principles to a totally atheist and secular society. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are doing this because this is what Marx said was necessary to bring about the complete transformation the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) desire.
In Europe we are also witnessing the results of negative immigration. The Globalists, George Soros and the European Union, have opened their borders to Muslim refugees. These immigrants have refused to assimilate, they have taken advantage of the generosity of the European people, and the Muslims have broken the laws of the different countries and established their own Sharia governments within the borders of the host government. In addition, the Muslims have promoted war against the people of the host countries with random killings and bombings in the name of Allah (Allah is not the God of the Bible. The prophet was a robber, murderer, and pedophile. These are historical facts.)
The people of Europe have recognized the carnage that open borders have brought to their countries and cultures. The people are saying enough is enough. We have witnessed this in many countries that have elected governments that openly acknowledge the damage open borders have wrought. Today we are witnessing open revolt against Soros, Globalists, and the EU in Belgium, home of the EU government. A protest against a U.N. migration pact turned violent Sunday as some 5,500 people marched in Brussels in a rally organized by various Flemish parties.
The demonstration was in response to the migration pact which was backed by more than 150 countries — including Belgium — at a United Nations conference in Marrakesh, Morocco, last week. The pact caused a rupture within the Belgian government and led to the Flemish nationalist N-VA party leaving Prime Minister Charles Michel’s coalition government.
Rape has become a national problem in many of the European countries. Muslim men believe it is their duty and their right to rape non-Muslim women including young girls. This has become such a problem that even tolerant Finland is saying no more. Finnish Interior Minister Kai Mykkänen from the National Coalition Party has said that immigrants and asylum seekers in Finland who commit sexual assault should be deported and/or have their citizenship revoked,
Pekka Nuutinen of the Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) gave the thumbs up to Mykkänen's idea, suggesting that more severe ramifications would act as a deterrent for asylum seekers and immigrants.
"Harder sanctions down to deportation could have a preventative effect", Nuutinen said, citing a spate of sexual offences against minors that was uncovered in the northern Finnish city of Oulu in early December, triggering harsh condemnation from Finland's leading officials, including Prime Minister Juha Sipilä and President Sauli Niinistö.
The Muslims who comprised the so called grooming gang, were arrested on suspicion of brutally raping and sexually assaulting girls as young as ten, (they were just emulating the prophet was their defense) were reported to be quota refugees or asylum seekers from the Middle East. Nuutinen stressed that the criminal actions of those seeking asylum in Finland cannot be blamed on "lack of information" or "ignorance".
Nery Caal and his daughter, Jakelin, crossed the border illegally on Dec. 6 and then surrendered themselves to border security agents. Based on where they were and the number of people they were with, border security was required to transport them in two rounds. During the second round, Jakelin fell ill. She ended up dying.
The little girl has been made a political football with the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and their comrades, the mainstream media, claiming that the border patrol killed the girl with some of course even blaming President Trump.
There are two elements responsible for the death of this young child and many others like her. Her father is first of all responsible. He placed his young child in a very dangerous position while breaking the law. Caal purposefully broke the laws of the United States by crossing the porous southern border and not going through legal procedures to enter the United States. He also took a very dangerous route. It is because of him his daughter died.
The second group that must take responsibility for this happening is the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats). It is to a great degree because of them people are placing themselves and others in very precarious situations. These people are led to believe that breaking the laws of the United States is acceptable. Because of policies supported mostly by Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) these people have understood that once they break the law and enter the United States illegally, they will be given special treatment by being caught and then released to become an illegal immigrant with all the benefits that has come to mean.
If the Untied States Congress understood that they are required to protect our borders from invasions and thus protecting United States Citizens, we would have our borders secured including a wall on the southern border. We would also have and enforce laws that treat the lawbreakers who cross our borders illegally as criminals and deport them immediately. When it was understood that our borders are difficult to cross and that those who succeed in crossing but are then caught will be deported immediately, illegal crossings would be minimized to barley a trickle.
Jakelin’s death is because of her father acting as an irresponsible parent and because the Marxist/Progressives used Jakelin and others like her as a means to a political end. Nery Caal has apparently accepted responsibility for his part in the death of his daughter. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) will never accept their responsibility just as collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats) never do. They all believe the ends justify the means, even when the means happens to be the lives of young children.
President Trump said China was treating the United States unfairly when it came to trade. Obama, W Bush, Clinton, and HW Bush did nothing about it. Instead they facilitated China. President Trump threatened to impose heavy tariffs on China and was roundly criticized. When China did not budge, Trump imposed even more tariffs. Today China has offered to rescind its reciprocal tariffs on our autos and this week China resumed ordering soy beans with a huge purchase. There are more and more signs that China will open more and more of its markets. Another win for the United States and Donald Trump.
In the aftermath of the Parkland School shootings, President Trump said one way to curtail what has become all to often of an occurrence was to arm teachers. The President was roundly criticized by the politically correct who claimed that guns are able to pick themselves up from the shelve, walk to a school, and start to shoot. Yes, they said that guns are responsible for the school shootings and all shootings.
The commission investigating Florida’s Parkland shooting recommended that trained and willing educators be allowed to carry guns in schools, reigniting a debate about an idea President Donald Trump had embraced earlier this year. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, chairman of the high-profile commission, suggested the idea as the panel worked to finalize a report that must be delivered to the state Legislature by the end of the month.
"We need to put aside these ideological positions and realize what reality calls for," Gualtieri said.
President Trump said that the way to stop illegal aliens, including terrorists, gang members, drug dealers, and other undesirables from entering the United States was to build a wall and become tough. When the Caravans marched north through Mexico, Trump sent the Army to help protect our border. Trump was criticized again and referred to by the press with every negative term they could conjure.
Today, many who were in the caravan are going back home. The citizens of Mexico have turned against the invaders. The potential invaders of the United States have issued an ultimatum to the United States: Let us in or pay us each $50,000. These potential invaders must think that Obama is still in the White House.
If you ever wondered why the collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – they are all the same) hate Trump so much and want him out of office it is because he has time after time proven the failure of the collectivist programs. He says what he means and means what he says. He pays no attention to political correctness. He truly intends to make America Great Again by restoring the individualist values upon which this country was founded and built again. He has proven to be a champion of Freedom and Independence and an enemy of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) policies of abolishing the Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, all morality, and God from our society.
The United States is in a revolution for our freedom. Thank God we have a fighter in the White House who places, God, Family, and Country as his top priorities. I was not a Trump supporter during the primaries. I have learned President Trump truly wants to Make America Great Again. That is also what I want and what every true Freedom Loving American wants.
We witnessed the two leaders of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party advocating open borders in the United States. Pelosi and Schumer said they opposed securing the borders of the United States, even though it is a constitutionally mandated responsibility of the government. These same collectivists have advocated illegal immigration into the United States and have facilitated the illegal immigrants in every way they could including establishing their own conclaves and not becoming a part of the United States. This is an extremely dangerous policy.
To witness the dangers of this collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive) policy, we can just look across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. The open border policy mandated by the European Union has torn apart countries and is tearing apart the European Union, which is not a bad thing. The European Union is a collectivist organization and has brought about economic and social unrest in Europe just like collectivist policies always do.
The people of the UK voted to leave the European Union. Prime Minister May has attempted to negotiate an agreement with the European Union. However, the agreement she has negotiated would keep the UK under many of the European Union dictates for several years. The people of the UK are saying that is not acceptable.
Angela Merkel, who has held complete power in Germany, and many say was the force behind the immigration policies of the European Union, is now a lame duck after she was forced to surrender power of her party. More and more the people of Germany are demanding controls on immigration as they face more and more terrorist attacks and lawlessness such as killings and rapes by the Muslim immigrants Merkel insisted on allowing into Germany.
The people of France are also revolting against the current government in France. Although this revolt is centered around higher taxes to promote the collectivist false claim of global weather change due to mankind, there has been more and more unrest in France as the French citizen has been the victim of Muslim terrorist attacks and Muslim immigrant lawlessness including killings and rapes.
Italy, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, to name others, have also had strong opposition to the European Union and collectivist mandated rules of open borders. Members of the EU, Australia, and the United States have all suffered from Muslim terrorism, killings, and rapes due to illegal immigration policies supported by collectivist organizations such as the EU in Europe and the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) in the United States.
The American people elected President Trump primarily because of his anti-collectivist policies including his promise to secure the southern border. Despite the obvious results of open borders, the collectivists continue to insist on following the open border mandate of Karl Marx. Europe is revolting against the EU. Australia is insisting on closing its borders. The United States people have spoken by electing President Trump. Nevertheless, the elitist mentality that is always a part of any collectivist movement as witnessed in Europe with the EU is also prevalent in the United States as a major element of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats).
The mentality of the collectivist has always been that as they strive for power to bring about total conformity to their collectivist (Marxist. Communist, socialist, progressive) ideals, the ends always justify the means. They have no scruples or morals when implementing any means to bring about their desired ends of a totally conforming and totally equal Marxist totalitarian state. Pelosi and Schumer stated this as they advocated for and defended their desire for open borders in the filmed meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office for all to see.
Politicians today consistently say one thing and do another. Even though this is done, the American people pay no attention and vote for those who have an R or a D behind their names. This is why America has an almost insurmountable debt, this is why America has open borders, and this is why America is close to having all the principles of freedom instituted by our founders reversed. In a Republic, where the people elect others to represent them, it is critical that the voter be informed, involved, and knowledgeable. The vast majority of American voters are no longer informed, involved, or knowledgeable.
Rep. Ted Lieu, a Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) from California, slammed President Donald Trump for accusing Democrats of wanting open borders. In a tweet Lieu said, “But Lieu said: "It's #TuesdayMorning. That means more boring, repetitive and false tweets from @realDonaldTrump about our border. No, Democrats do not support open borders. Oh, and one of the best ways to prevent disease is for @POTUS to stop sabotaging our health care.”
A typical tactic of any liar is to change the topic by making a totally unrelated charge. However, if the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) were not for open borders, they would support programs to close the borders. For instance, they would support physically securing a porous border that encourages illegal immigration. They would support clarifying our immigration laws, so they do not encourage illegal immigration. They would not support amnesty that has proven to attract more illegal immigration. They would not have violated the United States Constitution by supporting DACA. They would refer to those who have violated our laws by being in the United States illegally as illegal aliens, which they are, as opposed to undocumented. Everything the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have done in the last decade has been to encourage illegal immigration, which is supporting open borders.
Unfortunately, this double talk is not restricted to just the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) but also exists within the Republican establishment. Let me first of all say good riddance to RHINO Paul Ryan. Ryan has claimed he is a fiscal conservative, he wants to reduce both the debt and deficit, and supports balanced budgets. RHINO Ryan criticized Pelosi for violating the budgeting responsibility of Congress and relying on continuing resolutions. When RHINO Ryan became Speaker, he pushed a continuing resolution with huge deficits that gave Comrade Obama all the spending he wanted. RHINO Ryan followed that continuing resolution with another that forced Trump to sign another huge deficit continuing resolution granting the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) another round of wasteful and damaging spending.
Senator Paul asked the important question of the RHINO’s who claimed one thing but voted for the opposite, if it mattered if a deficit was a Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) deficit that increased the debt as opposed to a Republican deficit that increased the debt. The point Senator Paul made was so accurate; any deficit increases the debt which has consistently been viewed as a serous national threat.
We the American voters have a responsibility to remain, or become, informed, involved, and knowledgeable. It is shame on us when we elect an individual to represent us that does not even understand our federal government has three branches of government; Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary. It is shame on us when we re-elect individuals to represent us when they say one thing and then do another. It is shame on us that we use only sound bites and bumper stickers to guide our votes. It is shame on us that we have become uninformed, uninvolved, and are no longer knowledgeable about the kingdom over which we are supposed to be sovereign. We, the American people, are now becoming servants, serfs, and slaves to a sovereign government that is dictating not only how we are to live our lives, but also what thoughts we can and cannot have.
We, the American voter, have neglected our responsibility and willingly abdicated our right to sovereignty. Only we the American public can regain the sovereignty that is rightfully ours by becoming informed, involved, and knowledgeable.
Yes, Lieu, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) do support open borders. I can say this because of your actions and not your words. Yes, RHINO Ryan, you are an advocate for big government, debt, and deficits. I can say this because of your actions and not your words.
The FBI and the NSA under Comrade Obama along with the special prosecutor use familiar tactics.
They both use terror like strategies for maintaining control and power and to maintain control over their political enemies.
The FBI and NSA have those who oppose the collectivist agenda under surveillance.
Comrade Obama called those who did not support his policies fully as enemies of the people.
Generally, the FBI kept public opinion under close scrutiny.
The NSA has power to intercept forms of communication for surveillance of those deemed enemies of the people.
NSA surveillance reports are saved and maintained to be used when necessary.
FBI is also reported to have monitored those who were deemed as enemies of the collectivist agenda, such as political incorrectness and anti-climate change, to be used against them for propaganda purposes.
These were also tactics employed by the CHEKA.
Now self-proclaimed collectivist, Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is already calling for these CHEKA tactics before she is even a member of the House of Representatives. She used twitter to remind Donald Trump Jr. that Congress "will have subpoena power in a month" after he shared a meme implying that socialism leads to people eating dogs.
In a photo posted to Trump Jr.'s Instagram account, Ocasio-Cortez and President Donald Trump are shown as though they were debating each other, with the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) rising star asking, "Why are you afraid of a socialist economy?" and the president replying, "Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them." The caption "It's funny cuz its true!!!" accompanied Trump Jr.'s post.
But by that time, the Nuyorican had seen the viral meme — and had a comeback ready.
"I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up," Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "Please, keep it coming Jr - it’s definitely a 'very, very large brain' idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month."
These are the same tactics used in every “fundamental transformation,” to a Marxist totalitarian state as called for by Comrade Obama. This is extremely frightening. The most frightening part is that most Americans either do not recognize this danger or support it. If you vote for Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) you are supporting this “fundamental transformation.” If you also say that you believe in freedom and the principles of the United States Constitution, please understand that the way you are voting is in opposition to what you say you believe.
If you do not vote for Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and love freedom and the principles of the United States Constitution, please study and learn what is happening so you can become a part of the tireless minority that is keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men. We are in grave danger of losing our freedom and all the safe guards of liberty outlined in the Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.
Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have openly stated that candidates must advance the collectivist (Marxist, Communist, Socialist, Progressive) line if they want to be supported, including receiving donations. No longer do the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) claim to support freedom, but now openly are declaring their they want a Marxist totalitarian state. The policies now being advocated by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are the same policies implemented by all collectivist movements such as Lenin is Russia, leaders in different Soviet bloc nations, Mao in China, Castro in Cuba, and Chavez in Venezuela. Those of you who believe my above statement is inflammatory, read the history of the above movements. Not only will you find that the statement is truthful, you will also find that the political attacks on the opponents of the collectivist movement are the same as the attacks by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party on their political opponents.
So many Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) presidential prospects are now claiming the progressive (collectivist – Marxist, communist socialist) mantle in advance of the 2020 primaries that liberal leaders are trying to institute a measure of ideological quality control, designed to ensure the party ends up with a nominee who meets their exacting standards. Marx strongly advocated total conformity. Lenin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, and the Marxist/Progressive (Democrats) are enforcing total conformity.
Leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are discussing policy platforms that could serve as a litmus test for presidential contenders. Progressive donors, meanwhile, are plotting steps — ranging from closer engagement with campaigns to ultimatums tied to fundraising — to ensure that "Medicare for All," debt-free college and a non-militaristic foreign policy, among other causes, remain at the center of the upcoming campaign. In an effort to winnow the burgeoning field, progressive advocacy groups are beginning to poll supporters in the hopes of elevating candidates who gain the imprimatur of the left.
“You don’t just get to say that you’re progressive,” Rep. Pramila Jayapal, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, told progressive donors at a private conference. Jayapal, a Washington Marxist/Progressive (Democrat), called the 2020 election a chance to “leverage our power.” But she called it critical “that we have some very clear guidelines about what it means to be progressive.”
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party is not only insisting on total conformity within their own ranks, they have also thrown aside the safe guards of freedom the founders instituted because they knew they were mandatory for freedom. The founders understood that limited government was a requirement for freedom. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have cast aside this requirement and insist on creating a huge government that controls all aspects of society.
The Founders understood that rule of law was mandatory for freedom. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have thrown aside the concept of rule of law and replaced it with arbitrary law which is a requirement for every tyrannical government. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) insist on applying the law differently depending on whether or not you adhere to their political philosophy.
The Founders understood that a peaceful transfer of power was mandatory for freedom. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have cast aside this concept and replaced it with the concept of destroy and dismantle, using whatever means you can because the ends always justify the means, to undue any and all election results that do not elect a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, democrat).
The founders understood that divided government was mandatory for freedom. They also understood that the legislative branch, since it was closest to the people, would be the only branch with the power to make law, The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) realized that it was difficult to implement their collectivist policies by passing law within the legislative branch, so they have resorted to implementing law through the judicial branch which is easier for them.
The Founders understood that freedom would only be preserved by adhering to the principles within the Constitution. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) want a Marxist totalitarian state where they can control all aspects of society and mandate total conformity to their political philosophies. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) despise the Constitution and all long-standing principles that secure freedom. Therefore, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are following the command of Marx when he said that all long-standing principles of a society must be abolished so the “fundamental transformation” to a Marxist totalitarian state could be successful.
That “fundamental transformation” called for by Comrade Obama is happening right before us, and sadly most Americans do not recognize it.
The left would lead us to believe that the way to reduce poverty, misery, and crime is to take from one person and give to another. The left would have us believe that wealth is finite. The methods of the left have clearly proven that their ways always produce the exact opposite of what they claim they are trying to reduce.
The methods of the left, higher taxes, more income sharing, restrictions on business, and welfare programs can do nothing but bring the results they have always brought, higher poverty, more misery, and more crime. The failures of socialism are irrefutable.
We must then look at why these policies always fail and why the left keeps promoting these failed policies. The policies must fail because they destroy the very aspects that cerate prosperity. The left says capitalism is based on greed. The fact is there is some truth to that statement. People do strive to live a better life and find ways they can accumulate more wealth. The result of this greed is the innovation of new methods and new products. These new methods and new products produce more wealth for the innovator and also create avenues for others to benefit from these innovations. These avenues would never have been available to others if the innovator was not motivated by greed. A rising tide lifts all boats. Innovation raise the standard of living for all.
The left would have us believe that competition is bad. Competition is perhaps a greater driver of innovation than is greed. The achiever is by nature a competitive person. His driving force to innovate and beat the competition provides the same result as does greed. The competitive person never settles. When they have won one battle, they quickly move on to win the next. Another innovative product has been created, and this product also creates more ways for others to raise their standard of living. The driving forces of greed and competition have proven that wealth is not limited but is infinite. What one person has does not take from another, but it creates more wealth to those who wish to participate.
The policies of the left have always failed. We must than ask why the left despises those very policies and practices that are accomplishing the very things they claim they want to reduce, poverty, misery and crime. In the world of greed and competition we learn that ultimate power lies with the private sector and operates best with limited control by government and the self-proclaimed elite. The left believes they know more than does anyone else. The Senator of Hawaii just told us the greatest problem the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have is that they know to much. This is the destructive attitude of the left that brings about poverty, misery, and crime.
What we quickly learn is that those in government and the self-proclaimed elite are the greatest at stifling innovation. Control and restrictions will always limit innovation. Those who wish to control, understand by encouraging the achievement of others, they lose control over the achiever. In fact, poverty, misery, and crime bring power to the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) because the public will believe that control and restrictions will solve the problem. Even a cursory study of history proves just the opposite.
Another day another government shutdown threat. All so called government shut down threats have been because congress fails to do its mandated congressional function of providing budgets. Statesmen would and have provided budgets. Politicians provide continuing resolutions that continue to raise the national debt and operate with little or no common sense and discipline.
Congress is punting its shutdown fight over President Donald Trump's border wall until just before Christmas, delaying a brutal battle after the death of President George H.W. Bush essentially shut down the Capitol this week.
House leaders unveiled a bill Monday afternoon that will extend government funding until Dec. 21, moving a partial shutdown date two weeks down the road from this Friday's deadline.
And while lawmakers are hopeful that more negotiating time will help resolve a prolonged standoff around Trump's demand for $5 billion in wall funding, people in both parties lamented that two more weeks is unlikely to do much to change the overall dynamics of the impasse.
"We could have finished it today," groused Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. "We've been negotiating all weekend."
"I don't know why we'd have [a spending bill] going to Dec. 21. We know what we have to do. Let's just get it done in a shorter period of time, so we can go home for the holidays," agreed Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas). He dubbed former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) "a grinch" for having the Senate in before a Christmas holiday in the past.
While the two-week spending bill does buy some time for talks to continue, it doesn't mean Trump and Democrats will find consensus on the border wall. Congressional leaders are now betting that the pain of staying in Washington deep into December is motivation enough for lawmakers to reach a deal and avoid what people in both parties now fret could be a long partial shutdown later this year month.
"We have to avoid a shutdown. If we haven't learned our lessons in the past, I don't think we'll ever learn them," said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the GOP's most senior senator.
Congress has a responsibility to provide security for its citizens. We are facing two real national security issues today. Our southern border is wide open and people who have vowed to destroy us are entering. Our national debt is now approaching $22 trillion dollars and growing. Congress could take positive action against both threats by building a wall along our southern border. It would certainly keep enemies out of our country. It would also aid in reducing our debt since most of those entering our country illegally add to the rising national debt.
A group of sheriffs from around the country recently called on Congress to pass at least $5 billion toward building a wall along the 2,000-mile southwest border.
“The No. 1 issue facing all Americans, I don’t care who you ask, is the heroin epidemic that affects us all. And the Mexican drug-trafficking cartels dominate that industry and they’re controlling it coming into and throughout the United States. To every city, every urban area, every rural area in our country, the Mexican drug trafficking controls are seemingly doing it undetected, unmolested and unabated, and it’s time that we step up to the plate,” said Wicomico County Sheriff Michael Lewis during an interview after a recent Capitol Hill press conference about immigration law enforcement with sheriffs from counties across the country.
“It would make my job a lot of easier. I’m tired of dealing with overdoses. I’m tired of dealing with violent crime. I’m tired of dealing with human trafficking in our hotels all up and down U.S. Route 13 in Wicomico County, Md.,” he added. “And they’re there all the time and we’re making arrests all the time, but they keep coming and they keep coming because our borders are wide open.”
Lewis said that any additional funds to expand barriers along the southwest border would help improve security.
“Any implementation of greater security along our border will present challenges to the cartels. Will those challenges include tunneling beneath that wall? Absolutely, that’s what we deal with. But, trust me, we know how we’re going to build that wall. We know what it takes to build that wall,” he said.
