The key to border security is eliminating incentive

Border enforcement must continue to be enhanced. We need more Border Patrol Agents and more Customs and Border Protection Officers. Money should be taken away from foreign aid which is just giving money to people who hate us more often than not.

In your family budget, you provide for the necessities first. You make sure the mortgage is paid on time so you and your family have a place to live and you don’t destroy your credit rating. You spend what you need to on food and clothing and school supplies.

But you postpone that cruise to the South Pacific until you can better afford it. You’ll save those incredible ocean vistas and tropical sunsets for another day. Paying the bills and making ends meet comes first.

This is the concept of deferred gratification. Unfortunately we have not yet learned it in managing our national economy as we have in our own individual homes.

We need to spend what we need to spend to secure our border. But that is not a total solution. Human traffickers and drug smugglers and potential terrorists will continue to overwhelm our border as long as they think they have a high rate of success.

The problem with drug abuse in this country is that where there is demand, there will be supply. Since the opium poppies and the coca leaves grow in other countries, that means that their derivatives will being smuggled into this country.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration [DEA] priorities include assisting other nations in eradication of these illicit crops. Then Department of Homeland Security is responsible for enforcement to interdict smuggling of contraband at our border. But we are still missing the most important aspect of stopping this flow of harmful substances into our heartland to destroy our children.

The same situation exists with those who seek to illegally enter our country and disrespect our national sovereignty. No matter how much enforcement we put on the border, no matter how many walls we build, they will seek to evade or overwhelm.

We really need to determine when we will deal with this as an invasion. But we will never have U.S. Marines shooting everybody who crosses the Rio Grande illegally. So that’s not a realistic alternative.

To secure our border, we must reduce incentive. As long as Democrat politicians mischaracterize the invaders as victims rather than perpetrators, that will not happen. When demagogues ask why we are separating children from their parents, they should be asking why are irresponsible parents putting their vulnerable children into that situation in the first place.

Any pathway to citizenship sends the wrong message. Even the realization that they will be allowed to remain legally at some point will just increase those who come here the wrong way. Only if they know they will be repelled at the border and not allowed in will they not bother coming at all.

An example of a legitimate refugee is a Christian such as Asia Bibi who is persecuted by the Islamic government of her own country Pakistan. Those who just don’t like the living conditions in Central America do not qualify.

The U.S. Congress should amend all statutes to ensure that anyone who enters other than at a legal Port of Entry will be immediately sent back across the border. No processing, not anything. Just escort them back to the border and watch them cross back into Mexico or Canada.

If either of those countries does not cooperate, then our entire bilateral relationship with each must be re-evaluated. We need strong leaders. But the legislative branch is populated mostly by wimps and self-serving opportunists. Unless we elect better Senators and Representatives, this national crisis will never be resolved.

The root of our problem is the moral decay of America. As long as we ignore the spiritual emptiness of so many of our citizens, they will escape from the meaninglessness of their world through illicit drugs.

If we do not avail ourselves of the opportunity to create a decent society, we will be ruled by people of no core values who will do or say whatever will keep them in office. We can offer border solutions till we’re blue in the face. But until we put out the unwelcome mat for all those who jump the immigration queue, it will all be talk and nothing else.

Appeasement is always seen as a sign of weakness. That was the case with Adolf Hitler and Neville Chamberlain. That is the case with Islamic terrorists who seek our destruction. This also applies to the hordes of people poised to rush our border.

Only our superior strength is a deterrent. Strength is moral as well as physical. Our Founders attributed our national well-being to Divine Providence. Our only hope is to rediscover those values that have sustained us and to elect only those men and women who will act upon them.

    If they knew there was a wall that they couldn’t cross, that would help. If they knew that there were no jobs, place to live, no food to eat, they wouldn’t come. E-Verify should be enforced. Employers hiring illegals should go to jail. We all want to be nice. But no way can we take the entire world in here to live.

      Yep. It’s one thing to be compassionate (nice). It’s another thing to be suckers (also nice). We’re being suckers, which is why the endless flow of migrants has no intention of slowing. It’s only going to get worse until we change the laws, equip border patrol, and build the wall.

Border patrol spots drone used to help illegal immigrants breach the border

Border patrol spots drone used to help illegal immigrants breach the border

Human smuggling has gone high tech. At least it can be verified. At this point, it’s likely people have been using drone technology to assist in getting illegal immigrants across the border for a long time. It’s been used for drug trafficking as well, so thinking this is a new occurrence is likely erroneous.

But now we have proof-positive the efforts to get criminal illegal aliens across the border is a sophisticated operation.

Two of those apprehended were known gang members and one was a convicted sex offender, according to the Border Patrol. They now are being held in U.S. jails pending criminal prosecution.

Opinion

An under-reported challenge facing border patrol is the rise of criminal illegal immigrants crossing the border, sometimes not for the first time. We hear all about the groups of dozens or hundreds of migrants crossing the border and seeking to get apprehended so they can claim asylum and be released into the interior, but what about those who aren’t seeking asylum, who don’t want to be caught, and who are likely part of criminal elements?

Every border patrol agent who is tasked with processing paperwork for the migrants is a border patrol agent taken away from the necessary work of apprehending the criminals crossing over. This is why the use of drone technology is so discouraging. Right now, we have to rely on our technological prowess to cover much of the border. With the bad guys also using technology to thwart these efforts, it makes the already-difficult job of patrolling our border even more difficult and dangerous.

The left needs to understand that not everybody crossing over is just seeking a better honest life. Many are crossing the border for drugs, to join gangs, and even specifically to commit acts of violence against Americans. We need border patrol focusing on catching these bad guys, not serving paperwork to people who are unwilling to wait in line and enter the country legally.

Quote

“Approximately two minutes after the object returned back to Mexico for the third time, a group of 10 subjects made an illegal entry into the U.S. in the same area in which the object had been traveling. This is the first known time in recent history that a drone has been utilized as a ‘look-out’ in order to aid in illegal entries in the El Paso Sector.” – Border Patrol Statement

Final Thoughts

With so much time, money, and manpower used by border patrol to apprehend the migrants wanting to be caught, those who don’t want to get caught have the advantage. These are the dangerous elements not seeking asylum. They seek to do harm.

Border patrol nabs Mexican Mafia member ‘La Bestia’ crossing the border illegally

Border patrol nabs Mexican Mafia member La Bestia crossing the border illegally

A 29-year-old Mexican national was apprehended by border patrol trying to illegally cross over into the United States. The man, known as “La Bestia” or “The Beast,” had been previously convicted and deported for Obstruction or Retaliation.

He is a known member of the Mexican Mafia as well as the 18th Street Gang. Border patrol spotting him crossing the border nine miles west of the Calexico port of entry.

Opinion

On the surface, this might seem like minor news. But the left continuously screams that there is no reason for a border wall or increased security at the border. Their claims, led in large part by the politically charged rhetoric of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, are that the way to improve border security is to buff up the ports of entry.

Here’s the obvious problem with that. They’re correct in saying most apprehensions of criminals and smugglers happen at the ports of entry. But that’s not evidence of how the dangerous elements of illegal immigration move. It simply means the ones who are crossing the large swaths of unprotected border are harder to apprehend. Yes, a wall will work. Yes, increased resources and manpower for border security will work. Yes, improved technology will work. In conjunction with one another, these solutions will help to not only catch those who try to cross over illegally but will also dissuade many from even trying.

This is logical, yet the narrative is designed to make the President and the Republicans seem like fearmongers. It isn’t fearmongering when the threats are legitimate. At the border, they most certainly are.

Quote

“The continued vigilance of our agents led to the apprehension of this criminal. This dangerous man is off our streets and no longer a danger to the members of our community.” – Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim

Final Thoughts

As long as Democrats and leftist media push the narrative that the threats coming across the border illegally are minimal, they’re going to keep crossing. We have to take the threat seriously. The left must stop hiding behind political agendas.

Cher’s argument against releasing illegal immigrants in her city sounds almost conservative

Chers argument against releasing illegal immigrants in her city sounds almost conservative

Singer, actress, and Twitter grammar villain Cher was so passionate about protecting illegal immigrants a couple of years ago, specifically DREAMers, that she offered her own home to house some and called on others in the entertainment industry to do the same.

That was a year and a half ago. Today, things have changed. President Trump wants the migrants who are currently being released to the interior in areas close to where they’re apprehended in New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona to instead be given their hearing papers and released to sanctuary cities, especially in California.

This idea doesn’t seem to work for Cher, and she makes an oddly conservative argument as to why she thinks it’s a bad idea.

It isn’t just her state that can’t take care of its own. This is a problem across the country, though far-leftist California has definitely squandered its riches much more than most states. Nevertheless, the argument she makes about why illegal immigrants shouldn’t be brought to Los Angeles is the same argument the entire country can make.

In other words, they shouldn’t be released into the interior at all, sanctuary city or not.

The hypocrisy of the left is most notable in places like Los Angeles where Hollywood elites are all about making everyone else handle the problems of their flawed collective ideology. Cher’s argument is applicable everywhere.
