WOW, CLINTON SOUNDS VERY MUCH LIKE PRESIDENT TRUMP …
From the 1995 President Bill Clinton’s State of the Union address on immigration enforcement. Remember when both President’s Clinton and Obama said that although we are a nation of immigrants, we are also a nation of laws? Hmm, what happened?
Clinton and Obama sound much like Trump.
Barack Obama … “undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, they much be held accountable, especially the ones who may be dangerous”. Obama went on to say, “we expect people in the country to play by the rules and those who cut the line to not be rewarded.”Huh, and Obama even confronted those in Congress who dare question his authority. So why are the rules different for Trump?
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.

- 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

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.
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!”
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.
