It is massively hypocritical for leftists to turn away any migrants sent to sanctuary cities

The spin machine is in overdrive in the minds of many Democrats and their leftist supporters. As the President pushes to have illegal immigrants who are to be released into the interior sent directly to sanctuary cities in California, mainstream media and their Democratic handlers are scrambling to paint this as political retribution without sounding like they don’t want this to happen.

They can’t act like they don’t want this to happen. That goes against every claim they’ve made over the last couple of years regarding illegal immigration.

But here’s the thing. They really DON’T want it to happen. They’re perfectly fine with defending the “rights” of illegal immigrants as long as the vast majority of them are released to the interior in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico. What the left doesn’t want is for them to be released into the own backyard, but they can’t say that. Instead, they’re going to spin this as political retribution. That’s really what it is, but it’s the type of retribution that aligns with the claims made by the left.

In other words, they really should be welcoming this as their best case scenario. The President is giving them exactly what they claim they want. It’s disingenuous and hypocritical for them to cry foul in any form whatsoever. They should simply say, “Thank you,” and be on their way.

It’s time for California to prepare. If any state can handle the tremendous influx of illegal immigrants, it should be the state with by far the most tax dollars, right? After all, California is now the 5th largest economy in the world, ahead of Great Britain and the vast majority of nations across the planet. As a California resident, I’m very well aware that he size of our economy is not a good indicator of the ability of the state to handle, well, anything. I’ve seen the type of astounding waste and indefensible spending that one normally sees when visiting a dictatorship, not a part of the United States. The federal government is by far the biggest money-waster around, but California’s government gives DC a run for our money.

Yes, it’s our money, but that’s for a different discussion.

California should gladly welcome ALL migrants who are waiting for their asylum hearings. There should be no crying from Governor Gavin Newsom, no bellyaching from Hollywood, and no objections from Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Their unified response should be to congratulate the President for the wonderful generosity and honor he is bestowing on the state.

Any response from the left other than, “Thank you Mr. President,” should be met with derision and contempt. Sanctuary cities by their nature should be havens for the migrants who need help. The President is simply granting their wishes.

Kevin McAleenan out as acting Homeland Security Secretary

Kevin McAleenan out as acting Homeland Security Secretary

When Kevin McAleenan took over the role of acting Homeland Security Secretary in April of this year following the firing of Kirstjen Nielsen, the United States was at the height of its border crisis. Border apprehensions were skyrocketing. Criminal illegal immigrants were flooding across the border undetected. ICE apprehensions were stalled. McAleenan helped make strides in all of these areas, but he is now departing from the Trump administration to spend time with family.

The news comes at a relatively quiet time for Homeland Security as border apprehensions have dipped considerably thanks to a combination of hot summer weather, policy changes, and an agreement President Trump made with Mexico to have them stop migrants before they make it across the U.S. southern border. But it’s also a time when migrants are expected to start making the trek from Central America through Mexico into the U.S. interior.

The President expects to announce a new acting Secretary in the coming weeks.

McAleenan had been accused of leaking information about ICE raids to the press in an effort to stop them in June, prompting an investigation the following month. He denied the accusations and nothing public was disclosed regarding the investigation. But this sudden departure brings into question whether he was involved in leaking or if his disagreements with the President over raids and deportations prompted his departure.

We almost certainly won’t find out.

McAleenan’s efforts were superior to his predecessor’s, but some say it still wasn’t enough. I tend to agree. Hopefully the next DHS Secretary will take all of the tasks of securing our nation, including ICE raids, more seriously.

Citizens made safer by border wall speak out for We Build the Wall

Citizens made safer by border wall speak out for We Build the Wall

When news broke last year that U.S. Air Force Veteran Brian Kolfage started a GoFundMe page to build a citizen-funded border wall, reactions were mixed. Some thought it would never work. Other’s didn’t think they’d have the technical expertise to build a proper wall even if they had enough money to do so. There were even critics who thought any attempts by private citizens to get the necessary permissions, materials, and contractors would turn into a debacle that would cost too much and take forever.

But this is America, and as American citizens have been proving for over two centuries, private enterprise and determination to succeed drives us to accomplish more than expected. We Build the Wall Inc found an ideal location to build their first stretch of wall, a piece of land popular among human traffickers and drug smugglers. It wasn’t a good choice in the government’s eyes as the Army Corps of Engineers declared the terrain too difficult to build a wall.

Undeterred, We Build the Wall secured permissions. The found high-quality contractors and American materials. They built an incredible stretch of wall well under what the government would have paid to have it done. And they did it all in a matter of days.

But this isn’t about private versus public projects. This is about protecting Americans by securing the border in spots that are most heavily trafficked by illegal immigrants and drug cartels, and with that goal in mind, We Build the Wall had an immediate impact.

Four and a half months later, we’re getting to hear stories from Americans who were impacted by the project. This video released by Kolfage isn’t just heartwarming. It delivers hope to those who may also believe the government’s tendency towards politics over solutions has left them stuck in a bad situation.

“This is what border security is all about, protecting the American people,” Kolfage said. “It’s rewarding to see the project come full circle, however, this is just one project, one small section, but as you can see the impact is very large.”

As the Trump administration fights Democrats who are obstructing border security efforts, victories are slowly coming through. Some walls are being built. But it’s not enough. This is why We Build the Wall is such an important charity to support. They’re taking a strategic approach to locating the stretches of unprotected border that need their efforts the most.

It isn’t right that so many American citizens must worry about their property and their safety as thousands of illegal immigrants pour across the border every day. The last fiscal year ended with nearly a million border crossing apprehensions. This doesn’t take into account those who were not asylum-seeking migrants and evaded capture. There’s no telling how many made it into the United States undetected.

Enough is enough.

“We cannot neglect our fellow citizens any longer who are in need of basic security, and We Build The Wall will continue to fight for these people,” Kolfage continued.

As We Build the Wall ramps up its efforts, it’s imperative that Americans support each other in the fight against the crime and drugs flowing across the border. We cannot wait for DC to get its act together. We need the wall now.

Nation’s top court to decide whether law that bans encouraging illegal immigration unconstitutional

Nations top court to decide whether law that bans encouraging illegal immigration unconstitutional

Is it okay for speech to be used to show others how to break the law? Is the 1st Amendment applicable when telling someone how to circumvent federal immigration law? That’s what the Supreme Court will decide after the 9th Circuit struck down a law that would prevent Americans from helping illegal immigrants in this way.

As the Supreme Court picks up a slew of extremely important cases today, this one won’t get as much attention as it deserves. It’s not a particularly hot button for those who support illegal immigrants, nor is it a huge problem to those who support border security. But it does change the calculus as leftists often take their understanding of the loopholes in our porous immigration system and show potential illegal immigrants how to take advantage of it all.

Shocking commentary

Those who follow my writing know I am adamantly opposed to illegal immigration. It’s something near and dear to my heart as a new resident to Southern California, so I read and post stories every day about how we’re playing the fools by keeping it so easy to invade our nation from the south. That’s why my opinion on this law may shock some of you.

It’s unconstitutional, as the 9th Circuit says. Illegal immigration is a huge problem, but attacks on our Constitutional rights are even bigger threats. It’s not that I support those who help others circumvent our laws. It’s that I fear what laws like this could lead to in the future, particularly seeing how far the left is willing to go to strip us of our liberties.

If we say it’s illegal to tell someone how to circumvent immigration laws, then it will eventually become illegal to talk to others about our laws, period. Criticism of laws must remain protected speech, and that means openly discussing how to get around the most oppressive ones. Let’s say “assault weapons” were suddenly made illegal, but there’s a way to keep our firearms off the radar and protected from confiscation. Should alerting others of this information be illegal? Again, we’re not talking about the action of breaking the law. We’re talking about discussion of the law itself, whether showing someone how to break it or not.

We have many avenues through which we must fight illegal immigration. Instead of keeping people from talking about loopholes, we should just eliminate those loopholes. Restricting the 1st Amendment is not the answer.
