Nobody can say the President isn’t trying. He’s signing executive orders. He’s making new rules. He shut down the government for the longest period in American history. Yet the legislative and judicial branches continue to take turns thwarting his efforts and encouraging migrants to cross the border illegally. At this point, he has only the executive branch to trust with trying to slow the surge until voters can give the GOP control of the House of Representatives again. This means his best tool is ICE.
Border patrol can only do so much. Even when they’re able to capture illegal immigrants with the limited resources they have, they’re only making it harder for themselves to patrol the border and catch the people who aren’t turning themselves in. To get them back on patrol and away from detention centers processing paperwork and handing out diapers, the surge must slow. The only way for that to happen is fear. Considering the Democrats are rolling out the red carpet for them and activist judges are telling the President (and the world) that all of his efforts are somehow unconstitutional, he must rely on the one law enforcement agency that can strike fear in the hearts of those considering coming.
ICE raids can do the trick. But here’s the thing. They must be unannounced, widespread, and ongoing. It’s time to send a message that ICE is going to be raiding constantly. They’ll be raiding everywhere. Anyone who claims asylum and misses their hearing will be located and removed from the country, properly adjudicated in absentia. Once word spreads that this is happening, the surge will slow dramatically.
Right now, Central American families are willing to have their women and children raped by cartels on a 3000 mile journey after giving away their life savings in hopes of finding good jobs in America. But that willingness is only predicated on the belief they’ll be allowed to stay here indefinitely. What family would be willing to make the journey and sacrifice their bodies if they’re only going to be sent back home a few weeks after arrival?
This is a harsh reply to a harsh situation. I’m not a migrant, though I am a legal immigrant. But I have no idea whether these people are aware of what’s going to happen to them after they pay the cartels to “escort” them to the border. Perhaps the lies being told by the open borders agents of globalist progressives include telling them they won’t have to go through constant sexual assaults. Maybe they’re led to believe the journey isn’t that bad. Or maybe they’re told they’re going to get everything for free once they get here and they’ll be able to live the good life, free of all crime and not a care in the world. I don’t know what motivates them to seek economic prosperity elsewhere, but I do know this: the situations in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala are better today than they were in the past when migrant caravans were a dozen desperate people, not hundreds or thousands at a time.
The left likes to paint it as inhumane to detain children or separate families. But they have nothing to say about the unspeakably inhumane situation many of these people go through to get here based on the encouragement of the globalists and America’s progressives. If they truly cared for these people, they’d work with charitable organizations or even the United Nations to improve their lives instead of encouraging them to make the dangerous journey here.
When the 2020 election rolls around, it’s time to remove Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from the chair. The GOP needs a strong majority to go along with greater control over the Senate and a 2nd term for President Trump. But we can’t wait until 2021 to start fixing the border crisis. ICE is the best deterrent available until then.
Since the left doesn’t really care about these people, it’s up to the President to care on behalf of all of us. The most caring thing he can do is deport those who come here illegally, thereby sending the message that the journey isn’t worth the risk.
