President Trump makes announcement on America’s “border crisis”

President Trump

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Trump made an announcement on America’s “border crisis” Thursday evening via a bulletin from the White House:

Silence can speak volumes. As a caravan with thousands of migrants heads toward the U.S. border, Democrats and their media allies are hoping Americans won’t notice that the modern left once again has no credible message on illegal immigration.

It didn’t used to be that way. “We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked, and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country.” What right-wing extremist uttered those words in 2005? None other than then-Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.

President Obama wasn’t alone—Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), former Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, and other prominent Democrats once echoed those beliefs. Democrats may not have had a real solution to the problem, of course, but they at least understood they must acknowledge that illegal immigration represents a threat to the rule of law.

Not so in 2018. Beholden to an anti-Trump base, Congressional Democrats could only muster an unpopular call to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcementin its entirety as their strongest immigration proposal.

By contrast, President Trump delivered a clear message and proposed solution to the migrant crisis this afternoon. “America is a welcoming country,” he said from the Roosevelt Room of the White House. “We will not allow our generosity to be abused by those who would break our laws, defy our rules, violate our borders, [and] break into our country illegally.”

To confront the problem, “my Administration is finalizing a plan to end the rampant abuse of our asylum system,” the President announced.

    The intelligent people in this country see through Trump’s rhetoric and understand that this isn’t a crisis but it is a ploy to gain votes. The ‘caravan’ is a month or two away from reaching the border and they are planning on seeking asylum when they reach the border. Only those people who have a fear of ‘for ners’ are worried. Fear tactics only work with the uninformed.

      Depends on who “you” are I guess. I’m a legal citizen so obviously I don’t fear my nationalist neighbor, regardless if he shares my interest for sporting rifles. OTOH I’m not some cynical hedonist, indifferent of what happens after I’m gone and thus willing to trade my own material wealth for my children’s future, so millions and millions of illegals, good people as most of them are, taking over the country in slow motion do concern me, whether they are armed or not.

      If “you” are an islamist determined on imposing sharia law in USA, fear a nationalist with an AR-15 and a disregard for Rule of Law may well be rational.

    I wanted to see otherwise law abiding American citizens being hauled away by the thousands to serve felony sentences for hiring roofers, gardeners, packers or produce pickers when they understood – or should have understood – that they were illegals. If everyone is forced to demand papers before doing business with illegal-looking people this would be over in a heartbeat. Also, Trump’s reneging of NAFTA is a mistake. We need to help these people a to support themselves in their own countries out they will keep invading ours.

        Getting your roof repaired would be no problem at all of course. The free market would see to that, as it always does, illegals or no illegals. You are right though, that Mr and Mrs Whitecollar would have to start paying living wages to their American roofers when it gets too risky to hire desperate illegals for less than minimum wage.

        So, yeah, in the other end your six figure corporate paycheck may not stretch to to quite as frequent auto upgrades, international vacations and second homes as it did when you could abuse illegals to do your dirty work for cheap. That’s the price you’d have to pay so that millions of American workers can be paid living wages today and America can be the country of your own children tomorrow.

          You obviously haven’t tried to hire anybody lately. There are help wanted signs all over town, but they won’t hire anybody over 40, or who doesn’t have a bachelor’s degree in something, even if it’s some menial job.

            Well, that’s kind of my point. The mantra “Illegals take the jobs Americans don’t want” is incomplete. The full and honest statement goes “Illegals take the jobs Americans don’t want unless they get paid well”

            Americans may be willing to stand in a checkout for $13/h but not kill pigs. They did for $30/h before the illegals arrived though, and they would today too. Of course this means pork would no longer be practically free for someone who makes +100k in some cushy field with no competition from uneducated illegals.

            With the flood of cheap undocumented labor cut off they would have little recourse but to ditch the signs and actually hike the paychecks and consider older or less formally educated workers.

            I have always considered the so-called “liberals” the cruelest bunch I know. I cannot think of another group who so hates its own poor and supports body and soul a second underclass, the semi-legal illegals, to flatten the already low wages of the already disadvantaged poor. How can you be so heartless? So you can’t pay a bit more for your yard man and maid? You can’t afford a buck a bottle more for your wine?

            What is wrong with you guys? Have you no empathy at all for America’s poor? Don’t you understand that some people just can’t “retrain,” fly off like butterflies to some burger-flipper job. Do you not have a shred of empathy in your flinty souls?

            Can’t you see beyond your own shoes? Imagine how many more millions of Americans will be out of job when driverless cars come along. Low-skilled jobs will be gold. they will be the main issue of the century. And you want to give them away.

    Only 1200 of the troops are National Guard – the other 14,000 are Regular Army – with orders to treat these rock throwers as having a rifle – once you clear the women and kids they are using as shields away from the front you can confront the hostiles with force – can you say AR 15 – full auto?

        You truly are an IDIOT who doesn’t even understand the links you post. The Recession was caused by a “GLOBAL ECONOMIC DOWNTURN”. In Western Europe and the U.S. it was the banks and housing lenders who cause most of it and Wall Street is run by Liberal Democrats. You really should read what you post so you don’t look like more of a fool than you already are.

    The caravan of Central Americans marching towards the United States poses a serious public health threat and could bring dangerous diseases into the country, a prominent physician in a key border state warns. “It’s insane to bring in migrants from any country without proper health screening,” said Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. At her Tucson, Arizona practice, Dr. Orient, a graduate of the prestigious Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, specializes in internal medicine. In an interview with Judicial Watch she said that extremely drug resistant strains of tuberculosis are among the infectious diseases the Central American migrants are likely to bring in. Others include mosquito-borne diseases such as dengue and chikungunya that are widespread in the region.

    Just this week a mainstream newspaper reported on the health crisis created by the influx of Venezuelans fleeing to neighboring countries. The migrants are spreading malaria, yellow fever, diphtheria, dengue, tuberculosis, and AIDS throughout South America. Many of the diseases had been considered eradicated in the neighboring Latin American countries, according to government officials cited in the article, which states that “contagion from Venezuela’s economic meltdown is starting to spread to neighboring countries — not financially, but literally, in the form of potentially deadly diseases carried among millions of refugees.
