Jim Jordan to Trump: Sign the CR, then declare a national emergency

Published

on

Congress has reached a deal that would give the President a small portion of the $5.7 billion he requested as a down payment for the wall on our southern border. Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) has recommended the President sign the CR, then immediately declare a national emergency in order to apply more funds to the wall.

He then said the President should also invoke 10 U.S.C. 284 on top of all that. This is identical to what we recommended yesterday:

Which of the three solutions should President Trump use to build the wall? Yes.

https://noqreport.com/2019/02/12/three-solutions-president-trump-use-build-wall-yes/That means accepting the continuing resolution being offered by Congress. While the exact details haven’t been made public, it appears that there will be around $1.3 billion made available for “border barriers.” Assuming that doesn’t place restrictions on what can be built (we don’t need to spend money on Nancy Pelosi’s worthless “Normandy barriers“), then there’s room to get wall construction going.

It also means he needs to immediately invoke 10 U.S.C. 284 with nearly a billion dollars available to have the military start building the wall in areas designated by law enforcement to be most vulnerable to drug trafficking and organized crime. We’ve been pushing for this for a month now, and even though it should have been done back then before or during the government shutdown, now is better than never.

Finally, the President should declare a national emergency and start using that portion of the U.S. Code to start building the wall as soon as it clears legal and bureaucratic hurdles. Yes, there will be major hurdles, which is why we’ve been opposed to it as the primary method through which the President gets the wall built. But if he does it in conjunction with the CR and 10 U.S.C. 284, those two things can be building the wall while his national emergency makes its way though the courts.

One thing to remember is that the President is not obligated to accept the deal, nor is he obligated to keep the government from shutting down again. There are those who say the Senate will turn on him if he allows another government shutdown, but that isn’t likely to happen. However, at this stage it’s unlikely the President wouldn’t take the deal even if he and most conservatives don’t like it.

The border is in a crisis. Denying that would be denying reality, which is why conservatives who would normally be against executive overreach are supporting the President on this one, including the House Freedom Caucus. That includes us as well. Build the darn wall!

While wall funding jumps through hoops, let’s address Catch and Release immediately

While wall funding jumps through hoops lets address Catch and Release immediately

Last week, the ICE Union sent a scathing letter to the President blaming the administration’s policies for essentially neutering them and turning them into paperwork handlers. Instead of stopping illegal immigrants, their jobs have been relegated to capturing illegal immigrants and giving them paperwork that says they’re free to move about the country.

Catch and Release is in full effect, more now than ever before.

While the debate rages over President Trump’s national emergency to fund the border wall, we’re stuck in limbo. It’s time to get out of limbo and start working on solutions to the problem at hand. Illegal immigration is at its highest level in decades despite GOP control of the House, Senate, and White House for two years. They did nothing, absolutely nothing to address the real issues at the border, including:

  • The wall, of course
  • Legislative loopholes that protect illegal immigrants to the point they often have better rights than American citizens
  • Sanctuary policies that not only enable but encourage criminal illegal aliens to do their thing without fear of deportation
  • The horrible situation border patrol and ICE agents are in where they’re not allowed to do their jobs because they don’t have the resources to keep Americans safe

This last bullet is the one that needs immediate attention. As noted by John Binder over at Breitbart, Catch and Release is in overdrive:

While the Catch and Release program continues, the experts project that illegal border crossings for this calendar year will be more than three times what they were in 2017 and nearly double last year’s total crossings. The projection predicts there to be more than 840,000 illegal border crossings this year, though Nielsen predicts about 900,000 crossings for the year.

This year, there will be more illegal border crossings than the entire population of San Francisco. It’s not just the wall. We need to empower ICE to do their jobs. End Catch and Release now.

Greyhound changes policy to prevent ICE from dropping off thousands of migrants in their stations

Greyhound changes policy to prevent ICE from dropping off thousands of migrants in their stations

For years, it’s been standard operating procedure for U.S. authorities to drop off illegal immigrants at bus stations when the local charitable organizations are too full to accept more of them. But the recent dramatic increase in the number of migrants crossing the border has forced Greyhound Lines Inc. to change its policies. Now, only those with a ticket are allowed to enter their stations.

“Our priority is to safely and efficiently get customers to their destinations,” Greyhound spokeswoman Crystal Booker said in a statement. She cited an “unprecedented increase in individuals” without tickets entering their stations as a reason for the new policy.

My Take

There are plenty of people to blame for this. First and foremost, the migrants themselves, driven by leftist propaganda and encouragement by open borders progressives, must take the bulk of the blame. They were told they would get taken care of if they could bypass the legal immigration and asylum request systems, and they believed it. Second, the President’s administration has been woefully inept at handling the border security crisis. Some will point to the lack of a wall and blame Democrats for the problem, but the government shutdown and subsequent battle over the President’s national emergency declaration didn’t happen until after the midterm elections.

Where was the outrage over the Democrats bullying the GOP when the GOP had control of the House, Senate, and White House for two years?

I understand that most conservative sites are scared to say anything bad about the President, but he promised us a wall and he has failed to deliver. If you say, “that’s on Congress,” then I’m assuming you’re giving Congress all the credit for the tax cuts the President signed. No, despite the selective memory of most, you can’t credit the President with everything Congress does that he signs then blame Congress for everything the President wasn’t able to push them to do.

The President has done many positive things, which I have written about here in the past, but let’s be intellectually honest with ourselves. On this issue, someone gave him bad advice to wait for the wall and he decided to take that advice instead of pressing the issue. We are a crowdfunded conservative news site that relies on the generosity of our readers, but if you’re hoping to support a GOP-loving, Trump-can-do-no-wrong news outlet, we’re not it. We call it how we see it with conservatism and America’s well-being in mind. Neither the President nor GOP has acted on behalf of Americans in stopping the crisis at the border. This is why despite having full control, illegal immigration has increased dramatically since Republicans took over.

The only ones not to blame for any of this is Greyhound. They’re doing what’s best for their customers. As a private company, their rights must be protected. Anyone who tries to force them to allow illegal immigrants into their stations without a ticket is being unAmerican.

Illegal alien Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza released nine times from sanctuary jails before allegedly murdering woman

Illegal alien Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza released nine times from sanctuary jails before allege

The alleged murderer of a 59-year-old woman was in jail nine times in California before the murder occurred. All six times, ICE had a detainer placed on him which would have allowed the illegal immigrant to be taken into custody before being released. All six times, the detainers were ignored due to sanctuary laws.

Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, allegedly stabbed Bambi Larson to death in her San Jose home late last month. He was captured on Monday, which marked the tenth time he had been captured in the state. Unfortunately, sanctuary laws that took effect in January, 2018 allowed him to be released back into the population despite the ICE requests.

But according to county officials, his release was ICE’s fault.

“ICE should’ve gotten a warrant here. They could’ve gotten a warrant here,” said County Counsel James R. Williams, at a press conference late Wednesday afternoon. “And the county’s practice has always been to honor warrants that are issued.”

My Take

Williams should be ashamed of himself. All who support the sanctuary city policy in California and other areas of the country should be ashamed. They are willfully putting American citizens at risk in order to protect criminal illegal immigrants.

If you’re wondering why you haven’t heard of this, it’s because most in the media are willfully ignoring it. We are an independent, crowdfunded news outlet. We rely on our readers to support us with donations so we can continue to bring stories like this to light. With the problem of sanctuary protections spreading across America and affecting those who aren’t even in sanctuary cities or states, it’s important these stories get told.

Let’s be crystal clear about this. Bambi Larson would almost certainly be alive today if California cared as much about its legal residents as it cared about protecting criminal illegal immigrants. One can argue all they want about the benefits of the “undocumented,” but defense of criminals is heinous. Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza was not simply undocumented. He had behaved in a violent criminal manner in the past but his status as an illegal immigrant gave him more protections than legal immigrants. He was saved by the state of California and allegedly committed a horrible crime as a result.

It’s unlikely California or any other far-left areas of the country will acknowledge the damage they do to America and its citizens. They’ll just continue to make excuses for their obtuse policies and anti-American ideologies.
