Beto 2020: Investing in border security means… open borders?

Published

Beto 2020

Despite spending more money than any other Senate candidate in history, Beto O’Rourke lost to Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). It wasn’t surprising considering how conservative Texas generally is, but O’Rourke made a race out of it with heavy spending and tons of external support.

O’Rouke, in many ways, is still the star of the Democratic Party despite his loss. They haven’t won a statewide election this century, so even in his loss he has many Democrats excited about the prospects of a 2020 presidential run.

He claimed the day before the election that he wouldn’t run for President if he lost, but drafting people to change their minds is relatively common.

Most of his policies are far to the left, but arguably his most progressive stance is the border. He believes in open borders, which is more and more common for Democrats, but he added a new dimension to his version of the disastrous policy stance:

“I have to convince other Democrats and Republicans that it’s wise to invest in the U.S.-Mexico border, not just for security, but also for mobility and trade, and that’s why we should open up the border.”

It’s hard to imagine how he believes investing in border security means opening the border, but there you have it. It’s propaganda. It’s newspeak. When contradictions are invoked as possibly coexisting, it’s a sign the ideology is lost.

61% of New Yorkers say no to driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants

61 of New Yorkers say no to driver's licenses for illegal immigrants

A good majority of New Yorkers oppose giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants despite being a state known for light treatment of those who come or stay in America illegally, according to a new poll by Sienna College.

My Take

It’s insane that this is a thing. I understand the need to take care of people even though they broke our laws, ignored our sovereignty, and desire to subvert our nation’s culture by forcing their own upon all of us, but letting them drive around legally when they’re not legally supposed to be here is ridiculous.

At some point, Americans are going to wake up and realize the laws that have made us so free and safe as a people have been changed to accommodate the rest of the world. When that happens, we will not longer be America.

Twice convicted, thrice deported Alberto Martinez Flores captured again by border patrol

Twice convicted thrice deported Alberto Martinez Flores captured again by border patrol

Deporting criminal illegal immigrants while maintaining such porous and indefensible borders often proves to be a fruitless expenditure. Many of them simply do their time in jail, get deported, then come back the way they came last time. Rinse. Repeat.

Such is the case for Alberto Martinez Flores, 42, who has multiple convictions, including assault, strangulation, vehicular assault, and unlawful imprisonment. This is not a very nice person. In fact, he’s dangerous, yet despite three deportations over the years, including last year, he always finds a way back in.

My Take

Why do people like Flores keep coming back? Because there are too many places without a wall. There aren’t enough border patrol agents. There aren’t enough beds for ICE to house the dramatic influx of humanity crossing our border illegally.

I’m not sure where I read it, but there’s a good case that can be made for increasing jail time on crimes when committed by illegal immigrants. This is something that should definitely be considered in light of our open borders.

Nevada to seek death penalty for illegal alien Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman

Nevada to seek death penalty for illegal alien Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman

Prosecutors in two counties where an illegal immigrant allegedly murdered four people are seeking the death penalty for his crimes. North Nevada was shaken by the string of murders until the alleged killer was apprehended by law enforcement in January.

Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 20, was arrested January 19, 2019, by Washoe County Sheriff’s department and charged with multiple offenses while prosecutors and investigators worked on charging him for the four murders. They rarely invoke the death penalty but the severity and heinous nature of the crimes warrant capital punishment, according to prosecutors.

“We reserve the death penalty for the worst of the worst,” Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks said last Thursday. “We use it sparingly.”

The illegal immigrant from El Salvador is accused of shooting and killing Gerald David, 81, and his wife, Sharon, 80, in Reno and Connie Koontz, 56, and Sophia Renken, 74, in Gardnerville.

My Take

Just as traffic fines are doubled in construction zones, so too should penalties be increased when illegal immigrants commit crimes. His immigration status was not taken into account, but the crimes themselves were enough for prosecutors to seek the death penalty.
