Guess who’s ready to trade DACA amnesty for a border wall

Guess whos ready to trade DACA amnesty for a border wall

Join me, if you will, as we embark on a short journey six years into the past.

In January, 2013, America was introduced to the “Gang of Eight,” a group of four Democrats and four Republicans in the US Senate, brought together for a single purpose: creating a plan to grant amnesty and an eventual pathway to citizenship for millions of so-called DREAMers, aka illegal aliens.

Sure, the gang led by Lindsey Graham claimed they were working on immigration reform and border security. But as pro-amnesty gang member Marco Rubio said at the time, Congress needed to “address the reality” of illegal immigration.

Though the 2013 version was eventually disbanded, in 2016, Graham introduced the idea of putting the Gang of Eight Band back together.

“I’ll tell you what I’m going to do in 2017. I’m going to take the Gang of Eight bill out, dust it off, and ask anybody and everybody who wants to work with me to make it better to do so.”

While his plans were delayed until 2018, Graham succeeded in finding a few new faces to join the band, including Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner. And it looks like this new band will be picking up right where the old band left off.

During a meeting with band members on Wednesday, Kushner — a Democrat who loves Obama’s DACA order — told Senators in attendance that Trump will sign any amnesty deal as long as it includes border security funding. Considering the fact that Trump is also a Democrat who loves DACA, I think we can conclude that such a deal is very likely to become a reality.

How likely?

When Trump issued his Rescind-In-Name-Only order reversing DACA in 2017, he structured it in a way that allowed the Obama-era law to stay in effect indefinitely, a fact verified at the time by a senior member of the White House staff.

One year ago, Trump called a proposed DACA fix supported by Jeb Bush a “bill of love” that he would willingly sign in exchange for a border wall … or as we now know, a reasonable facsimile thereof.

And just weeks before the Democrats took back the House in the midterms, Trump and Graham both stated that they would work with Democrats on a deal where DACA would be saved in exchange for wall funding . . . WITHOUT CONDITIONS . . . during the lame duck session.

Do you remember when Trump had this to say about repealing DACA and building a “big, beautiful wall?”

Good times. Good times.

Why is CBP evading a mandate to collect illegal immigrant DNA?

Why is CBP evading a mandate to collect illegal immigrant DNA

There is a tool that will assist law enforcement agencies across the country to match crimes to illegal aliens who commit them. This tool is efficient, effective, and most importantly it’s mandated by law. But nine years after what was intended to be a 1-year delay, border patrol still isn’t collecting DNA samples from all apprehended illegal aliens. One whistleblower is asking why this is still the case.

Mark Jones, the internal whistleblower within the U.S. Border and Customs Protection, has been trying to draw attention to this problem for months. Last week, he was on with Laura Ingraham on Fox News to discuss the issue. The “exigent circumstances” that made the Department of Homeland Security the only law enforcement group to not implement mandatory DNA sampling was due to time. It took 15 minutes for the initial collection and processing. From there, it took 2-3 days for the sample to be cross-referenced against a crime database. But the Obama administration gave DHS a pass because they were overwhelmed.

Today, the problem is worse. Those exigent circumstances are greater now. But the need is also greater as thousands of illegal immigrants are released into the interior every day. We have a way to stop much of the flow of criminals, but we’re not using this tool. It’s just something that’s slipped through the cracks, but it can be fixed immediately. All acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan has to do is send a memo that the 1-year delay from a decade ago is no longer in effect. Problem solved.

President Trump should immediately order McAleenan to require all illegal immigrants to have their DNA samples collected and cross-referenced against crime databases before anyone is released to the interior. This is just common sense.

Two asylum-seekers later discovered to be wanted by Mexico on kidnapping, homicide charges

Two asylum-seekers later discovered to be wanted by Mexico on kidnapping homicide charges

According to many Democrats, anyone coming to the United States who files asylum claims should be released to the interior immediately. That’s the stance of such notable progressives as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren. Among the people they want released, no questions asked, are two separate Mexican asylum-seekers who, as border patrol later learned, were wanted in Mexico on charges of kidnapping and homicide.

Thankfully, border patrol did their jobs properly detaining the asylum-seekers until their request was denied, at which time they were ordered repatriated to Mexico.

Border Patrol Repatriates Two Wanted Felons

EAGLE PASS, Texas – Within the past two weeks, Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Sector Foreign Operations Branch worked with the FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the government of Mexico to coordinate the repatriation of two men wanted by Mexican authorities on kidnapping and homicide charges.

“The U.S. Border Patrol works closely with the government of Mexico to identify fugitives,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “Because of that outstanding level of cooperation, these violent criminals were quickly located and returned to Mexico to answer the egregious charges against them.”

Border Patrol agents at the FOB were contacted by Mexican government officials in July regarding two subjects wanted on kidnapping and homicide charges. One of the men was apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol in November 2018 near Eagle Pass, while the other surrendered to Customs and Border Protection Officers at the Eagle Pass Port of Entry in December 2018. Both men made credible fear claims, and were ordered removed by an immigration judge after those claims were denied.

There was no indication prior to contact by Mexican officials that these men were wanted when border patrol picked them up. Had their “reasonable fear” claims been accepted in their hearings, they would have become legal residents of the United States. Only after their claims were denied did news come from Mexico that they were wanted.

Demands by Democrats for immediate release of all asylum-seekers upon processing is the most blatantly dangerous policy they want to inflict on American citizens. You won’t see progressive media reporting this, so it must be spread by conservatives.

Pregnant illegal alien rescued by border patrol while lost in the desert

Pregnant illegal alien rescued by border patrol while lost in the desert

A 24-year-old pregnant Guatemalan woman was traveling with other migrants through the desert after crossing the border illegally. Border patrol rescued them when half of their group left them in the desert and were later apprehended by border patrol. She was vomiting and had to be treated immediately before being taken to a hospital.

The desire to be anchored to the United States by having a child born on American soil can cause dilemmas for expecting mothers. On one hand, he closer to the expected birth date it is, the greater the likelihood they won’t be deported before the baby is born. But trekking thousands of miles is difficult when one is not pregnant, let alone while carrying a child.

This particular migrant likely picked the poor timing – in the extreme heat of the summer months – based on her desire to reach American soil before she was no longer able to travel the long distance. That choice nearly cost her and her baby their lives.

Yuma Sector BP Rescues Pregnant Woman Lost in Desert

Agents accompanying a Yuma Sector Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue team soon located the group, among them a 24-year-old Guatemalan woman who was four months pregnant. In route to Yuma Station, agents provided immediate aid to the pregnant female, who had begun to vomit, and contacted emergency medical services for an ambulance transport to a local hospital.

The woman was treated and released from the hospital Saturday.

The entire group of 13 illegal aliens was processed for immigration violations.

Border Patrol warns that illegally crossing the border any time of year can be fatal, but summer months, when temperatures can reach over 120 degrees, prove especially dangerous.

The timing of this is pertinent as the President considers putting an end to birthright citizenship. It’s an alluring prospect to have one’s baby on U.S. soil, one that is putting lives at risk for the sake of a broken policy loophole.
