SCOTUS Rejects Request to hear Environmental challenge to President Trump’s Border Wall Construction
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WINNING …
President Donald Trump won a major victory in the building of the border wall between the United States and Mexico when on Monday U.S. Supreme Court rejected a request from a trio of conservation and environmental groups seeking to block construction. The justices declined to consider the groups’ appeal of a lower court ruling that paved the way for the federal government to begin replacing border fencing in two locations and building wall prototypes.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a request from a trio of conservation and environmental groups seeking to block construction of President Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The justices declined to consider the groups’ appeal of a lower court ruling that paved the way for the federal government to begin replacing border fencing in two locations and building wall prototypes.
The judge, U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, rejected the groups’ challenge to a 1996 federal law that gives the government the power to waive environmental laws to more quickly begin work on a wall. The Department of Homeland Security sought to sidestep the laws as it pursued the projects related to construction of the border wall.
The conservation groups said the 1996 law violated the Constitution because of the power it granted the federal government.
Curiel, however, said the Trump administration did not exceed its authority when it waived environmental laws as part of its efforts to build the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Trump administration asked the justices not to hear the case.
Mexico to Deport 500 Migrants Who “violently” and “illegally” Tried to Storm United States Border at San Ysidro Port of Entry
MEXICO DEPORTING VIOLENT MIGRANTS …
Reuters is now reporting that Mexico is going to deport approximately 500 migrants who violently tried to storm the San Ysidro port of entry Sunday. This is in response to the illegal and violent actions of the migrants.
If there was ever a reason to build a wall and prevent such lawlessness from occurring, the time is now. No one has a problem with legal immigration, this is not it.
Mexico will deport migrants from a group of 500 who on Sunday tried to “violently” and “illegally” cross the U.S. border, the Mexican Interior Ministry said in a statement.
The statement added that Mexican authorities had contained the protest at the crossing between Tijuana and San Diego and that, despite heightened tensions there, Mexico would not send military forces to control 7,417 migrants from a caravan currently amassed at the U.S.-Mexico border.
MAYBE THIS IS WHAT IS NEEDED UNTIL ORDER CAN BE RESTORED …
From the UK Daily Mail, President Donald Trump threatened to permanently close the U.S. border with Mexico on Monday, saying he’ll take the drastic action if members of a swelling migrant caravan are not deported back to their Central American homelands. Following the actions of this weekend where U.S. Border Patrol fired tear gas canisters and rubber bullets at a group of migrants as hundreds tried to storm the border and who also threw ‘projectiles’ that hit border officers. This nonsense must come to an end. Why would anyone want such people in the United States who would act this lawlessly?
At some point the people of the United States need to figure out whether we are a sovereign nation and conduct ourselves under the rule of law or if we are a third word country where anything goes. If we have no borders, then I also assume the assumption is there are no state borders and all property lines and fences mean nothing as well.
‘We will close the border permanently if need be’: Trump threatens decisive action unless Mexican government deports caravan migrants as hundreds storm border and officers fire tear gas and rubber bullets into crowds of people
- President Trump threatens to shut U.S. border with Mexico permanently if migrant caravan is not deported
- He called on Congress to fund his border wall, declaring that the caravan is ‘not coming into the USA’
- Migrants threw ‘projectiles’ that hit U.S. Border Patrol agents on Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry
- Officers responded by firing tear gas and rubber bullets into crowds of people as they neared the border
- Ultimately about 30 made it across, according to a report quoting a Mexican official
- Tensions prompted U.S. officials to close the crossing between Tijuana and San Diego
- Trump’s tweeted ultimatum played on TV screens Monday alongside images of screaming, coughing children
- Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said she would not put up with the ‘lawlessness’
- Mexico vowed Sunday to deport about 500 who tried to ‘violently’ and ‘illegally’ cross the border
Nancy Pelosi Says Democrats Have Been Strong on Borders “All of Our Borders” … Also Called 9-11 Terror Attack an “Incident” (VIDEO)
NOW DEMOCRATS ARE JUST MAKING CRAP UP …
Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stated, “We have a responsibility to protect our borders. Make no mistake about that. And Democrats have been strong on that point, all of our borders.” HUH, so Democrats have been stronger on borders than Republicans.? Was this supposed to be a stand up comedy routine? Exactly where were the follow up questions from the media asking, WTF are you talking about Nancy, have you lost your mind? So Nancy thinks the Democrats, the party of open borders and sanctuary cities is strong on borders?
This BS is a direct reaction to Democrats overplaying their hand in wanting to abolish ICE, which is backfiring on them big time!
So do you mean Democrats were strong on borders when Pelosi said, we should “mow the grass” in border areas to stop illegals?
Also, lost in her sound-byte was calling 9/11 an incident. INCIDENT?!? This is what you want to make Speaker of the House America? This is what you will do if you give Democrats the house in 2018.
“In fact, I said to some of you before, when we had the 9/11 incident and the commission was formed — and they made their recommendations — they made recommendations to protect America, but the Republicans would never take them up. And some of it was about our borders. The Republicans would never take them up,” she added.
Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) Introduces Bill Making First-Time Illegal Border Crossing a Felony … Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act
IT’S A START …
As reported at Town Hall, Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) has introduced a bill that makes first time illegal border crossing a felony. The bill is called the Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act. First I would like to say to all in Congress past and present, how in the hell is it a frigging misdemeanor to violate our borders? What the hell have you people been doing for the past God knows how many years?!? SHAME ON YOU ALL!!! How is it not a felony already for an individual to violate our sovereignty? That is a crime.
The bill makes illegal crossing into the United States a felony with a prison sentence of one year and one day. It also as Rep. Black explains, “if they were to try to come back to the United States at another point in time through a legal means, they would either not be accepted or it would be very difficult for them to come into the United States so it’s a real deterrent.”
Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) introduced a bill Tuesday which would make a first-time illegal border crossing a felony rather than a misdemeanor. Speaking with Townhall, Rep. Black explained how this change, along with others, creates simple disincentives against coming to the United States illegally.
Black explained the two, main features of her Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act.
First, the bill would make first-time illegal border crossings a felony with a prison sentence of one year and one day. First-time illegal border crossings are currently misdemeanors with a prison sentence of six months or less.
“Now the important thing about that,” Black explained, “is that if they were to try to come back to the United States at another point in time through a legal means, they would either not be accepted or it would be very difficult for them to come into the United States so it’s a real deterrent.”
This is the difference between a politician looking to become Governor of Tennessee and a common sense thinking individual. A deterrent? YOU WANT A DETERRENT!!! I will give you a deterrent and what the penalty should be for a Zero Tolerance for illegal entry. ZERO means zero and if you wanted to really see illegal crossings go down, provide a real deterrent. A year in a US jail is easier that making the the illegal crossing. I am all for legal immigration and believe changes need to be made to make provisions that make sense for what is best for the United States. However, illegal crossing needs to be stopped and it would appear that both Republicans and Democrats never wanted to. The bill should read as follows:
- First time offense for illegal crossing into the United States is a felony with a 10 year prison sentence.
- After you have served your 10 years, you will be deported back to place of origin at illegal’s expense.
- Upon convicted of first time offense, you will never be allowed to legally enter the United States EVER.
- Your immediate family will also not be allowed to enter legally either if previously convicted of a felony crossing … there is some reverse chain migration.
These politicians need to suck it up and protect our borders. Not kinda protect them or not give a damn at all. Illegal is illegal. Treat it that way. There is a right way and a wrong way to enter the United States. To all the immigrants that come to America legally, WELCOME!!! For the others.
