Trump will work with Democrats after the election to save DACA

Will Dreamers thank President Trump when he signs a DACA replacement law in January

When Trump and the GOP fully funded DACA, sanctuary cities, and refugee resettlement while failing to fund ICE and Trump’s “big, beautiful, powerful (border) wall” — so beautiful he wants to name it “The Trump Wall” — in last month’s budget betrayal, it was more evidence that their promise to fix the immigration problem was just another in a long list of lies made to get elected.

So, it came as a bit of a surprise when a few of the so-called conservatives who routinely participated in the GOP’s betrayals for a seat at Trump’s table — I’m looking at you, House Freedom Caucus — expressed concern over the possibility that Trump will team up with RINOs and Democrats to cut an immigration deal during the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress if after Democrats take back the House in November.

Why these faux conservatives are shocked at the prospect that Trump would betray them and work with Democrats is beyond me. Trump has attacked conservatives as obstacles to his agenda, and he’s already worked with Democrats on issues like spending, gun control, and … wait for it … immigration reform (aka saving DACA) in exchange for money to build the border wall.

There are those who believe that an attempt by the Dealmaker-In-Chief to successfully cut an immigration deal with the Democrats a long shot since the Senate is expected to remain under Mitch McConnell’s reliable leadership — Hey, stop laughing! — but we need to remember that Republicans in the Senate have been pushing to save DACA and create a pathway to citizenship for years.

Do you remember the Gang of Eight? Led by Sens. Chuck Schumer and John McCain in 2013, this band of immigration misfits created many of the policies being considered today. Though they failed, one of the original members, Sen. Lindsey Graham, attempted to put the band back together during the 2016 campaign season. Other Republicans joining Graham were fellow Republicans John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Marco Rubio; all but McCain will be in the Senate during the lame duck.

Following the news that Trump might strike a deal with Democrats, Graham recognized the NY Liberal’s possible sellout as an opportunity for Republicans to get what they’ve always wanted concerning immigration. In an appearance on Trump’s favorite media outlet, Graham stated that he’s prepared to make a deal where DACA is saved in exchange for wall funding without conditions.

Trump lied about fixing illegal immigration, just like the GOP has been doing for years. And with the 2020 presidential campaign underway, the Democrats retaking the House, and the Senate Republicans ready to make a deal, saving DACA and creating a pathway to citizenship for nearly two million illegals is a done deal.

Daniel Horowitz expresses the frustration patriots are feeling every day regarding the border

One of the most frustrating hot topics in American politics today is the lunacy regarding our border crisis. Nothing is actually being done to stop or even slow the dangerous invasion that’s happening at our southern border. Democrats rail against any actions. Republicans fail to act in a meaningful way. Even the President, who has fought for border security, took some bad advice by not pressing the issue well before the Democrats won control of the House of Representatives.

Conservative commentator Daniel Horowitz expressed our level of frustration by proposing an idea that seems ridiculous on its surface. But if you stop and think about it, there’s really no difference with what he’s proposing and what’s actually happening. At least by doing it his way, the cartels won’t benefit from our unwillingness to remain a sovereign nation.

Whether it’s the Democrats waking up to the dangers of the open borders they crave, the Republicans getting some gumption do do something, or a combination of both, we need to fix the border problem immediately. This is getting ridiculous.

Meth mules arrested in desert near Tucson

Meth mules arrested in desert near Tucson

Drugs are smuggled into the United States through multiple means. Some comes through ports of entry by land or see, which gives border patrol the easiest opportunity to thwart their efforts. But much of the drugs are brought over by foot or boat, entering the United States where there is no wall or protection against foreign incursion.

Border patrol announced a bust this week of just such a type of incursion. The smugglers were carrying bags of methamphetamine across the desert, far from a part of entry and from areas where there is no border wall separating the United States from Mexico.

Agents from the Tucson Sector Mobile Response Team (MRT) aboard a National Guard helicopter responded to a report of six men walking in a desert area frequently utilized by drug smugglers. MRT agents found and arrested six Mexican nationals illegally present in the United States, after a tracking operation with a K-9 team.

One of the men was carrying four packages of methamphetamine concealed in a cardboard box inside his backpack. A search of the immediate area resulted in the discovery of a two-way radio, a communication method commonly used by smuggling organizations.

My Take

One of the main narratives being pushed by the left against building a border wall is their claim that nearly all arrests of drug smugglers are made at ports of entry. While this is true, it’s not a very good way to support their case. Drug smugglers who do not use ports of entry are simply not captured as often because… wait for it… there’s no wall in so many areas and border patrol can’t comb the entire desert looking for them.

Drugs are being smuggled into the United States, and not only through ports of entry. Those who use vehicles to try to smuggle drugs in do so because the loads may be too big to carry on foot, but whether it comes in on truck full of hundreds of pounds of drugs through ports of entry or by foot with hundreds of mules crossing the border illegally where there’s no wall, it’s getting here nonetheless.

It’s ignorant to believe our success in sniffing out drugs in vehicles means the smugglers are going to give up, especially when transit across our porous borders is so easy. Walls aren’t just to prevent illegal immigrants. They’ll help stop crime.

Don’t let the left use the “port of entry drug bust” claim to confuse the issue. Not all smugglers are dumb enough to drive their drugs through ports of entry. Most of it’s coming through places where there’s no wall. Build the wall.

Border patrol saves 7 illegal immigrants, including 3 children, from drowning in the Rio Grande

Border patrol saves 7 illegal immigrants including 3 children from drowning in the Rio Grande

Seven illegal immigrants from El Salvador were rescued by U.S. border patrol as they attempted to cross the Rio Grande River on Tuesday. The four adults and three children were unable to stay afloat in the rapid waters and had to call out for help. Luckily for them, border patrol was nearby and saved all seven lives.

“The higher number of families attempting to illegally enter the United States exposes more vulnerable adults and children to the hazards and risks of crossing the Rio Grande River,” said Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak. “If not for the quick response by our Border Patrol agents, this incident could have ended tragically with the loss of life of three small children and their parents.”
According to border patrol:

On March 19, while conducting maritime operations, the Del Rio Station Marine Unit rescued two families from El Salvador after they attempted to cross the Rio Grande River near the Del Rio Port of Entry. The two families, totaling seven individuals, including three children ages three, four, and 10, were struggling to stay afloat in the swift current. The agents heard them call out for help because they could no longer hold their children while trying to stay above water. The agents immediately recognized their distress and navigated their service vessel toward the individuals, deployed a rescue rope, and safely pulled the individuals aboard the vessel.

All seven individuals were determined to be nationals of El Salvador. All were in good health and were transported to the Del Rio Border Patrol Station for processing in accordance with CBP guidelines.

My Take

We are often told stories by the media about the dangerous conditions from which the masses of people from Central America are fleeing. While the President and other Republicans, as well as border patrol itself, tries to tell people the dangers these people face on their journeys, leftist media continues to downplay it. It becomes especially dangerous for those who choose to enter illegally instead of using a much safer port of entry, as Tuesday’s near-tragedy demonstrates.

The bravery of border patrol agents doing their thankless jobs while getting constant criticism from the left and little support at all from Washington DC is worth commendation.

Mainstream media loves to pounce any times harm comes to illegal immigrants in border patrol custody. When they save lives, as they did yesterday, it’s radio-silence from the press. Why? It’s just another example of why we need to build the wall now.
