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:

  1. First time offense for illegal crossing into the United States is a felony with a 10 year prison sentence.
  2. After you have served your 10 years, you will be deported back to place of origin at illegal’s expense.
  3. Upon convicted of first time offense, you will never be allowed to legally enter the United States EVER.
  4. 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.

ICE Director Thomas Homan Blasts Irresponsible Democrat Lawmakers On His Last Day (VIDEO)

THIS IS A TRUE PATRIOT …

This morning on Fox & Friends, ICE Director Thomas Homan blasted Democrat law makers and open borders advocates on his last day at the agency for their irresponsible and ignorant condemnation of ICE. Director Homan said,”he was sickened the last couple months on the attacks against ICE officers.” Homan went on the say that ICE officers should be respected for the dangerous jobs they do by the media and Democrats, not vilified.

Homan was asked for his reaction to Democrats calls for the abolishment of ICE. He said in response, “they need to educate themselves.” He stated, “ICE doesn’t not separate families on the border, that’s the job of Border Patrol.” He went on to say, “they need to get their facts straight and educate themselves that there are two different agencies.” A note to outgoing Director Homan, they don’t care. They don’t want to be educated with the facts. Because the facts would get in the way of their anti-Trump, open-borders narrative.

Homan stated, “if the American public want to know who to blame for family separation. The first people they need to blame is Congress.” He is correct, ICE is just the messenger of Congresses laws. ICE is enforcing the laws that Congress has passed and it is up to Congress to change the laws, not ICE. Congress refuses to fix it. Homan called out New York Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand by name. Once, it would have been considered a LEFT-wing loon idea to demand such a thing. Now it is a Democrat mainstream idea. What the hell happened to this party?

ICE Director Thomas Homan then laid down the challenge to the anti-ICE Democrats calling for an end to ICE. Homan vigorously stated, “as far as these Senators and Congressmen vilifying ICE and the border patrol, as you say sir, go strap a gun to your hip and stand on that line. Stand on that trail at 3am, in total darkness and wait for someone to come down that trail and meet you that you don’t know if they are an illegal alien or a heavy armed drug trafficker. Do that job, stand that post, then bad mouth that border patrol or ICE agent. Do the job!”

Where was the LEFT and Democrats calling for an end to ICE uder Obama?

Homan said President Trump’s executive order in January 2017 mandated he carry out all existing immigration laws whereas former President Barack Obama had instructed ICE to prioritize who it went after.

Even so, ICE deportation numbers during the middle of Obama’s administration in Fiscal Year 2012 — a total of 409,849 people removed — was significantly higher than Trump’s first year number of 226,119.

Democrats once again find themselves on the wrong side of the issue when it comes to illegals. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law, not the feds. Democratic Pollster Mark Penn just recently stated that 84% of Americans support turning undocumented immigrants over to authorities. That would be ICE folks.

When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 35% believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the law. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.

To help understand the current political debate over the children issue, a closer look shows that 82% of Republicans and 56% of voters not affiliated with either major political party feel the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. But 60% of Democrats say the government is more to blame for enforcing the law.

Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.

Democratic Pollster Mark Penn: 84% of Americans Support Turning Undocumented Immigrants Over to Authorities

 THE LEFT ONCE GAIN OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE … SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

Democratic pollster Mark Penn stated during an interview with Hill.TV “Rising,” that 84% of Americans favor turning undocumented immigrants over to federal agents. Penn asked during polling, “Do you think notifying ICE would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street?” According to Penn, the overwhelming majority said, “decrease.” This is in stark contrast with Democrats and Lefties who are  calling for the end of ICE. Eighty-four percent of respondents is a lot more than just Trump voters and Independents. That would include many Democrats as well. But Democrats are openly calling for the end of ICE, which some think is insanity and a gift to the GOP. Ya think?

Prominent Democratic pollster Mark Penn said on Thursday that a vast majority of Americans don’t really support so-called sanctuary cities that shield immigrants in the country illegally from deportation.

Penn, who served as chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, revealed that 84 percent of Americans favor turning undocumented immigrants over to federal agents.

“I asked them, ‘Do you think notifying ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street,’ and they overwhelming said ‘decrease,’ ” Penn told Hill.TV “Rising.”

Penn said the response was strikingly “out of sync” with what the public might think about sanctuary cities. The broad term refers to cities that don’t fully cooperate with federal authorities when it comes to turning over people in the country illegally to immigration enforcement.

Rasmussen: Voters Blame Parents Illegally Crossing US Border, Not Feds, For Border Children Crisis

MAJORITY OF AMERICANS BLAME ILLEGAL PARENTS, NOT FEDS …

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. Imagine that? If one actually wants to be honest and not political and just look at this with root cause analysis, it is obvious where the problem is. That would be using the 5 Why’s to the LEFT and Never-Trumpers.  Another 54% agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” As reported at The Daily Caller, The media has put a hyper focus on the separation of families at the border over the last several weeks, leading President Donald Trump to sign an executive order ending the separation. Current U.S. law does not allow families to be detained together if the parents are referred for prosecution for illegal border crossing.

 Most voters blame the parents of the separated children at the border for the latest illegal immigration crisis, not the federal government.

When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 35% believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the law. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.

But 60% of Democrats say the government is more to blame for enforcing the law.

Among all voters, 49% say the administration is too aggressive trying to stop illegal immigration. Twenty-five percent (25%) say it’s not aggressive enough, while 21% view the administration’s policies as about right.

Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.

President Donald Trump Ends ‘Catch and Release’ Immigration Policy

 TRUMP ENDS CATCH AND RELEASE …

President Donald Trump has signed a memo ending “catch and relase” illegal immigration policy. It is about time! The White House announced late Friday the end of the “catch and release” policy for illegal immigrants. Catch and release is the practice by which immigrants presenting themselves at the border without authorization are released from detention while waiting for their cases to be processed. Yeah, like how many of them actually show up for their hearing as opposed to becoming illegal residents of the United States? President Trump ran for president to reform immigration policy. Even though the do-nothing Congress hasn’t passed any type of sweeping reform, the administration is taking steps to make policies stricter. And Republicans wonder why they are in trouble for the 208 midterm elections.

U.S. President Donald Trump signed a memorandum on Friday ordering the end of a policy, known as “catch and release,” in which illegal immigrants are released from detention while awaiting a court hearing on their status.

As part of the memo, Trump asked Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to produce a list of military facilities that could be used to detain illegal immigrants.
