Hey Dems: THIS Was Discovered On A Rancher’s Property… Is Border Security A Priority NOW? (Video)


Written by Wes Walker on January 17, 2019

Nancy and Co dismiss the importance of stemming immigration — does THIS raise any red flags? A rancher says she’s found prayer rugs on her property, and that there has been a spike in “OTM” (other-than-Mexican) illegal entry into America. Is that a problem?

 

“There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico,” the rancher said. “People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across. We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal. It’s not just Mexican nationals that are coming across.”

Her comments were part of a larger conversation about how many in the region believe migrants are coming to the U.S. illegally from all over the world, not just Central America.

Border Patrol and its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection, did not respond to multiple interview requests. But CBP’s Arizona region issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday that said agents had arrested people from across the world over the past five days.

Here’s another, related video from the same State along the border:

What makes that part of the border so vulnerable?

They’re remote, with wide open spaces, no local police department, and no physical obstacle preventing people from crossing.

Even PBS has picked up on it, as recently as December 18th, 2018, posting this story only four days before the partial government shutdown began over this very issue.

Headline as follows:
U.S. officials baffled by large migrant groups flocking to remote New Mexico border crossing

Large numbers of Guatemalan families and unaccompanied children are surrendering to U.S. immigration agents in an extremely remote and dangerous stretch of New Mexico desert, a new smuggling route that has baffled authorities.

We’ve got an identified border crossing at a relatively undefended stretch of border — which puts both residents and trespassers in real danger. We were discussing it at a national level literally days before the shutdown.

But despite news like that, or news like this:

Pelosi and Schumer refuse to fund border security anyway. And if PRAYER rugs are turning up at the border..?

In our post-9/11 world, what motives should we ascribe to Muslims and other “OTM” entrants who are avoiding lawful ports of entry into America?

Well, you don’t have to watch “Sicario 2: Day of the Soldato” to imagine those implications.

However desperate the Democrats are for any short-term political gains their open-border policy might give them, they do NOT want that kind of blood on their hands.

Just build the damned wall already.

This ‘People Who Don’t Want A Border Wall’ Meme Needs To Go VIRAL


Written by Wes Walker on January 17, 2019

If you want to see Democrats torn between winning their Shutdown Showdown and saving their skin for 2020, show them this meme.

We can’t take credit for this meme, it was posted on Instagram by the user ‘dc_draino’. But we sure can agree with and promote the hell out of it. (And you can too!)

Do drug cartels want open borders? Yes.

Do sex traffickers want open borders? Yes.

Do smugglers want open borders? Yes.

Does MS-13 want open borders? Yes.

Do rapists that prey upon the vulnerable border-crossers want open borders? Yes.

They even said so in a memo of their own.

The Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund memo, which circulated Monday, called on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”

The memo from the left-leaning think tank also said that protecting DACA is not only a “moral imperative” but also a “critical component” in winning elections.

“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the memo read.

It finished, “If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond.”

Why would anyone, of any party POSSIBLY be in favor of open borders?

What difference would that make? Oh, nothing much, just a permanent expansion of the Left’s political power base.

One electoral news site gives us an explanation of what counting illegals does to the electoral college numbers, including an interactive map:

Here’s how the electoral map would look, based on 2013 Census estimates, and using 2016 election results, if only citizens were counted. […]

As we found at the time, “11 states would be impacted. The big loser would be California, which would see 4 of its 55 electoral votes trimmed away. No other state was impacted by more than one electoral vote. FL, NY and TX would lose one each, while seven states (LA, MO, MT, NC, OH, OK, VA) would gain one.” In terms of the 2016 election, Donald Trump would have won an additional four electoral votes, giving him a 310-228 victory, vs. the actual 306-232 result.*

“Fundamentally Transforming,” indeed. Into their own perpetual power base, whether we want it or not.

Just like the Big Tech Companies said they would in the article endorsed by their own management:

Mehlman: Border wall really barrier to Dems’ dreams


Reported by Chad Groening (OneNewsNow.com) | Monday, January 7, 2018

U.S.-Mexico border fence (new)

Technology is helpful to detect and arrest illegal aliens crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, says an advocate for immigration enforcement, but it cannot replace physical barriers that stop their progress.   

As the partial government shutdown continues into a third week, both President Donald Trump and Democratic leaders are digging in their heels over funding a border wall, a key promise of Trump’s 2016 campaign but a boogey man to Democrats who want to stop him from achieving that goal.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have claimed they support night vision cameras and sensors along the border rather than a physical barrier.

“We favor smart, effective border security,” Schumer has said, “not a medieval wall.”

Pelosi, meanwhile, made headlines in recent weeks by calling a border wall “immoral” then, in past days, described it as an “immorality between countries.”

Republicans, however, have pointed out that liberal Democrats voted for a 2006 bill that poured millions into a border fence, and talk radio and Twitter have been asking if supporting that border fence was an “immoral” vote, too. 

Meanwhile, footage of Schumer defending U.S. sovereignty and referring to illegals as “illegal aliens” — now considered a derogatory term to far-left activists — has materialized as well as the border battle heats up.  

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says Democrats object to a wall

Mehlman

because it clashes with their progressive vision of an open border. Their claims to push technology are suspect, he says, because those measures fail to keep illegals from stepping onto U.S. property. 

“A wall actually does,” he insists. “And we’ve seen evidence of that around San Diego with the caravan that came up from Central America. Most of the people remained on the other side of the border because there is a wall there.”

Oval Office fight

Mehlman likens the idea of technology to a home security system but says a border barrier is much like an old-fashioned lock on the door.

“If you had to choose between locks on the doors and windows, and censors on the doors and windows,” he observes, “I think most people would choose the locks.”

What any new border barrier will look like, if it ever happens, is up in the air: Trump has stated in recent days that steel fencing — “steel slat barriers” — would be suitable, and that idea is being mocked by Democrats over his campaign promise of a concrete wall. 

According to The Daily Caller, however, Trump is listening to the advice of Border Patrol leaders who have shown him prototypes of border structures. The most suitable structure depends on the terrain, flooding, and if the area if a favorite for illegal entry, the story explained.  

As far as the Democrats mocking the idea of a wall, Mehlman says walls might be a medieval idea but they have worked for thousands of years.

“The wheel’s been around for a long time but it works,” he says, “and so does the wall.”

Trump’s Border Wall Gets Full Funding with $1.6BIL Price-Tag


President Trump, right before leaving for Paris, tweeted out one message that should have many Americans cheering.

DJT: Big WIN today for building the wall. It will secure the border & save lives. Now the full House & Senate must act! http://45.wh.gov/5L8g1q

This of course didn’t see much light of day, because the MSM is so focused on another non-Russian collusion story.

This House spending bill is raising some eyebrows though.

It is fully funding Trump’s US/Mexico wall, with the initial $1.6 billion; which is part of the fiscal 2018 Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill.

The plan was released Tuesday by the House Appropriations Committee and a subcommittee moved the plan forward on Wednesday.

But here is where the shock comes in…

While the plan makes good on one of Trump’s top campaign promises in 2016, it also moves away from another pledge he made on the trail: Mexico will pay for the border wall. But Trump has more recently said the U.S. will pay first and Mexico will reimburse, or fund in other ways.

House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman John Carter praised the bill.

“Keeping Americans safe by protecting our homeland is a top priority. This funding bill provides the resources to begin building a wall along our southern border, enhance our existing border security infrastructure, hire more border patrol agents, and fund detention operations,” he said.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesman David Lapan said that the new money will go a long way for starting the border wall. “On the DHS side it’s clear that we’ve gotten a direction to secure the southern border, that a wall and barrier is part of that process along with people and technology and that funding from Congress is required for us to move forward on that,” he said.

Daily Wire

“In total, the bill allocates $13.8 billion to customs and border protection. That includes the $1.6 billion for the wall, $100 million to hire 500 more Border Patrol agents, $131 million for new border technology, $106 million for aircraft and sensors and $109 million for ‘non-intrusive inspection equipment,’ ” The Hill reported.

Trump Considers High Tech Border Wall, Complete With Solar Panels


Reported By Andrew West | June 22, 2017

Donald Trump may have been stymied a bit on the start date for construction of his all-too important border wall, but that hasn’t stopped the President from pushing innovation for the project.

The so-called “resistance” to President Trump has caused a bit of a traffic jam in Washington D.C., as leftists and their protégés continue to oppose and deny The Donald in every possible scenario for no other reason than his republican status.  It’s petty and childish, sure, but that has been the way that democrats have operated for years.  The only difference now is the unacceptable ferocity with which these leftist lunatics are opposing him.  Death threats, mock assassinations, shooting at congressmen…It’s enough to slow down any administration for a few months.

Trump, for what it’s worth, has not given up on his campaign promises to the American people in the face of this asinine adversity.  Instead, the President has now revealed a possible solution to finding support for his promised border wall, and, while he’s at it, a little slice of energy independence from foreign sources.

“President Trump is considering building the wall between the U.S.-Mexico border out of solar panels, according to remarks he made in Iowa Wednesday evening.

“‘We are thinking of something that’s unique. The southern border — lots of sun, lots of heat. We are thinking about building a wall as a solar wall. So it creates energy. And pays for itself,’ Trump said to cheers from the crowd at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“‘I think we can make it look beautiful too. It would really look beautiful. That would be nice,’ said Trump.

“Trump quipped that the solar installation would cost Mexico ‘much less money.’”

Trump’s proposal will certainly irk the left, as it calls into question their own opposition to the wall.

Democrats have constantly fought against the idea of large corporate anything, including the global companies that control the world’s oil supplies.  This has turned energy independence and renewable resources into a pet project of the American leftist.  In this case, however, Donald Trump is bridging a gap, across the aisle, in order to compromise.  Trump will get his border wall, protecting Americans from the peril of unchecked human traffic between the U.S. and Mexico and create a bit of energy independence for Americans.  It’s “America First” at its finest, yet it will be difficult mental gymnastics for the left to oppose the idea.

Try as they may, democrats can no longer thoughtfully oppose the border wall should the President incorporate this sort of energy-creating circumstance.  Well played, Prez.
