GOP leaders held a vote on a resolution by Louisiana GOP Rep. Clay Higgins expressing the House’s support for all ICE officers and personnel and denouncing calls to completely abolish the agency. You can look through the record and you will see many of these types of votes that are a total waste of time. They in no way benefit the people of the United States. The only purpose of such a bill is to get members of the opposite party “on the record” so the record can be used against them in elections.
In the meantime, the United States currently has a national debt of $21 trillion dollars and climbing toward $25 trillion and then $30 trillion. When the Trump administration discovered $15 billion that were not used by different agencies and they proposed to withdraw the funds from the agencies and return it to the United States Treasury, congress voted to not allow this transaction.
Interest on the national debt is projected to be $310 billion in 2018. It was $187 billion in 2009 and is projected to be $717 billion in 2026. The interest on the national debt will become the single biggest budget expense. Yes, Americans, we are borrowing money to pay our interest. The only possible outcomes are to actually reduce spending and start to reduce the debt; get ready for the government to default on its interest and principle payments; get prepared for hyperinflation similar to what is happening in Venezuela today. Congress continues to ignore this danger to our national security because it is dangerous to the individual members political careers. Yes Americans, our elected officials place their political futures above the common sense needs of our safety.
Our southern border remains open. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) support and encourage open borders. The Republican establishment claims they want to secure the borders but always find an excuse why they cannot support it this time. The creatures of the swamp support open borders because it secures their jobs and insures that they will retire with extremely healthy pensions.
Meanwhile drugs continue to come into the Untied States unabated. Criminals such as MS-13 continue to come and go as they please. Other criminals, including those who traffic children for the sex trade, come and go as they please. We are told the cost of building a secure wall is prohibitive by those who support open borders. Meanwhile the annual cost to the American taxpayer is skyrocketing. According to one study, current immigration policy imposes as much as $300 billion annually in net fiscal costs on U.S. taxpayers. The estimated cost of building a border wall is $21.6 billion. If we built the wall, we could lower our annual outlay by $300 billion. That would almost cover the current interest payment on the debt.
We Freedom Loving Americans must demand our representatives in Washington stop playing political games that insure their future and start to put the good of the United States as their top priority.
