“If we do not control our own borders, then we do not have any immigration policy. ” Thomas Sowell

“If we do not control our own borders, then we do not have any immigration policy. We may have immigration laws on the books, but if anybody can cross the border who wants to, those laws are just words on paper and a bad joke.”

Would The AP Do A Lengthy Hit Piece On A Union President If He Was Opposed To Building A Wall?

“That is just not the way the government is supposed to run.” (Doris Meissner, commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service during the Clinton administration) Exactly what do agents who are/have been out there in the middle of the night and actually doing the job know. We need to consult someone who works at a think tank in Washington DC like Doris Meissner whose work and expertise “…include immigration and politics, immigration enforcement, border control, cooperation with other countries [Seriously? Is that the same as gets along well with others? Note: Add that to resume.], and immigration and national security.”

Doris Meissner, Border Security Expert

From 1993-2000, Meissner served in the Clinton administration as Commissioner of the INS. No information if any of those seven years included midnighters on the border.

 

“Meissner personally, came under criticism for not doing enough to control the borders, at a time when cross-border movement was higher than in any previous period.”

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Brandon Judd, president of the union that represents thousands of border patrol agents, has flipped the axiom that there are no winners in a government shutdown.

His proximity to President Donald Trump has elevated the union leader’s profile while burnishing the image of the U.S. Border Patrol, a backwater in prior administrations when compared to other federal law enforcement agencies like the FBI and Secret Service.

At the same time, Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, has helped to validate Trump’s fiery immigration rhetoric and affirm his conviction that a wall at the southern border is urgently needed to stop what they’ve described as a humanitarian crisis. Continue reading

CNN Not Interested In Reporting Walls Do Work

CNN requests KUSI for local view on the border, declines our reporter after finding out wall works

kusi

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Thursday morning, CNN called the KUSI Newsroom asking if one of our reporters could give them a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown. KUSI offered our own Dan Plante, who has reported dozens of …

[snip]

We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work.

We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.

“This will keep our communities safer…” How’s That?

“I’m disappointed my amendments to exclude child molesters from early release and to protect victims’ rights were not adopted. I also remain concerned that reducing sentences for drug traffickers and violent felons is a threat to public safety.” U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.

Senate easily passes Trump-backed criminal justice reform bill

A Trump-backed bipartisan criminal justice bill passed the Senate Tuesday night by a margin of 87-12, despite ongoing efforts by Sen. Tom Cotton and other hardline conservatives to sink it.

Why it matters: For years, advocates and lawmakers have worked to reform the federal prison system only to have their efforts fall apart at the last minute. But with the help of Jared Kushner in the White House and a bipartisan Senate coalition, the First Step Act has made it past the Senate and will now likely become law — impacting thousands of current federal inmates.

What’s next: The bill is going back to the House, where it is also expected to pass. The House passed a less expansive version of the bill earlier this year. After that it’ll head to the president’s desk for signature.

Details: The bill would… Continue reading
