President Donald Trump to Direct Federal Resources To Building a U.S.-Mexico Border Wall … Also to Eliminate “Sanctuary Cities”
DONALD TRUMP PRESIDENCY, DAY 3: BUILD THAT WALL … IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WON’T COME.
It is day three of the Donald Trump presidency, might be called, “IMMIGRATION DAY”. Making good an another campaign promise, today the president is supposed to take executive action to direct federal resources toward building a border wall between the United States and Mexico. Trump will also look to eliminate sanctuary cities in the United States and add another 5000 border agents.
President Donald Trump will take executive action Wednesday directing federal resources toward building a border wall, a White House official confirmed to CNN.
The move begins a multi-day roll out of immigration actions that’s also expected to include moves related to refugees and visas. Trump will make the announcement during a visit to the Department of Homeland Security at 1:25 p.m. ET.
Trump himself hinted at Wednesday’s move on Twitter, writing “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!”
Trump plans to issue two executive orders Wednesday during his visit to the Department of Homeland Security, according to a person familiar with the President’s plan.
The first will direct the agency to begin construction of the border wall, as well as take steps to repair existing areas of fencing along the frontier between the US and Mexico. The order will also include a mandate to increase staff at Customs and Border Protection by 5,000 and alleviate the flood of migrants fleeing violence in Central America.
According to the person familiar with the plans, Trump’s executive order will require DHS to publicly detail what aid is currently directed to Mexico, an indication of an eventual move toward redirecting some of that money to fund the wall’s construction — and giving cover for a longstanding campaign promise to have Mexico pay for the structure.
HUGE WIN FOR TRUMP!!!
As reported at the Washington Examiner, it turns out that Donald Trump’s Mexican gamble turned up Aces. It was a huge win for Trump as he went into the lion’s den and did not back down. Trump did not apologize for America, instead he held his ground and looked, sounded and acted presidential. Side by side with a foreign leader, one who prior to the meeting seemed to have little in common. However, following the meeting Mexican President Pena Nieto said, “I had a very open and constructive discussion with Donald Trump. Even though we may not agree on everything, I trust that together we will be able to find prosperity and security.” As Hilary Clinton and her minions looked small and criticized Trump for traveling to Mexico, as Powerline opined, the meeting implicitly gave Trump the status of a head of state, Folks, that is big!
If Trump continues to do this, show the American people he has the right stuff, stay on message and hammer Clinton with her own words and actions … he will win. Americans know Hillary is a liar and can’t be trusted. Many need an extra added reason to not vote for her. That’s where a focused and on message Trump comes in.
About an hour before Donald Trump made his joint statement with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, a strategist in Trump’s extended circle saw success on the horizon.
“I bet they have a nice meeting where they both explain their positions and promise to talk further — it doesn’t have to be any more complicated than that,” the strategist explained. “If [Trump] just has a calm, behind-closed-doors meeting, has a photo taken, looks presidential, and gets out of town, that’s a big win.”
Indeed, it was a big win — a very big win — for Trump. Going into a meeting with the potential for disaster — who knew how Pena Nieto would receive the world’s most controversial presidential candidate or what embarrassments might lie ahead? — Trump came out of the meeting looking very much like a potential President of the United States. Standing beside the Mexican leader in front of a green-gray granite wall reminiscent of the United Nations, Trump presented the picture of a statesman.
Less than 24 hours earlier, Trump was reciting “The Snake” before a rowdy audience in Everett, Washington. In Mexico, he looked like a world leader.
It’s On … GOP nominee Donald Trump to make historic campaign trip to Mexico Wednesday and meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
The WAPO is reporting that Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City today and meet with with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just prior to Trump’s much anticipated immigration policy speech in Arizona later today. Late Tuesday night on his Twitter feed, Mr. Trump said he had “accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.” President Nieto had invited both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to Mexico; however, only one has shown the leadership and where-with-all to take him up on his offer. Like him or hate him, he certainly has CO-JONES! Despite previous death threats due to Donald’s tough talk regarding Mexico, illegal immigration, building a border wall and making Mexico pay for it, Trump is going anyways. This should be interesting, oh to be a fly on the wall.
According to reports, Trump will be accompanied on the Mexico trip by former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican.
Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City on Wednesday for a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, just hours before he delivers a high-stakes speech in Arizona to clarify his views on immigration policy.
Peña Nieto last Friday invited both Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to visit Mexico, his office said in a statement provided to The Washington Post on Tuesday night.
Trump, sensing an opportunity, decided over the weekend to accept the invitation and push for a visit this week, according to the people in the United States and Mexico familiar with the discussions.
Late Tuesday, Trump and the Mexican president confirmed on Twitter that they will meet Wednesday.
UPDATE I: Mexico rages against Trump visit.
One can only shake their heads at the reaction of those in Mexico that are coming unglued by Donald Trump’s visit. Amigo’s, it is your president that invited Trump. I wonder what they are afraid of?
Reaction was fast and furious among those in the Mexican political cognoscenti.
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized on behalf of the country during an interview on CNN, accusing both Trump and Peña Nieto for using the occasion to exploit their own political opportunities.
“It’s a very opportunistic move, and I hope U.S. public opinion, U.S. citizens can see this and finally, and finally see what is behind Trump, this false prophet that is just cheating everybody,” Fox said during the Skype chat on “New Day” on Wednesday, adding that it is “a desperate move and I don’t see how it can work at all.”
The only way that inviting Trump makes sense for Mexico would be if Peña Nieto gets the Republican nominee to apologize for his past statements about Mexicans, Fox said, admitting that he did not understand the thinking of the current Mexican president while pronouncing Trump’s decision to visit “very smart.”
Fox had also reacted fiercely to the news Tuesday night, telling Trump that “[t]here is no turning back” from his offensive remarks about Mexicans, Muslims and others that he said “have led you to the pit where you are today.”
Added Fox, who previously apologized to the candidate after declaring that Mexico was not going to pay for “that f—-ing wall”: “¡Adiós, Trump!”
Obama’s White House Gets Higher Wall, But a Wall Between Mexico and USA for Border Security is A Bad Thing
WALLS AND SECURITY FOR ME, NOT FOR THEE …
It is the ultimate show of hypocrisy, The White House, the house that Barack Obama lives in; however, thankfully not for long, will be getting a higher fence for better security and to keep people out. The new 11-foot-7-inch barrier surrounding the White House facility will replace the 7 foot one to prevent individuals from jumping or scaling the current one. OH THE IRONY. So from the president who says fences and walls are not the answer comes the following that they are the answer when it comes to White House security. Hmm, this reeks of do as I say, not as I do and that Obama and the house he lives in is more important than the country we live in.
In a commencement speech at Rutgers, see the VIDEO below, Obama makes the point that walls are bad and evil. REALLY? Of course the fool made a reference to the Iron Curtain, and any literate person knows that it was a wall to keep people in, not out. Maybe Obama should take his own advice in that ignorance is not a virtue. Obama said the following: “Building walls won’t do that. It won’t boost our economy, and it won’t enhance our security either. [...] Suggesting that we can build an endless wall along our borders, and blame our challenges on immigrants — that doesn’t just run counter to our history as the world’s melting pot; it contradicts the evidence that our growth and our innovation and our dynamism has always been spurred by our ability to attract strivers from every corner of the globe. That’s how we became America. Why would we want to stop it now?”
But higher and more secure walls are perfectly okay for Obama. And with regards to ignorance not being a virtue Mr. President, the United States of America is a governed by rule of laws. We have never allowed all immigrants into this country. They have always had to pass a standard. And they certainly could not come into the country illegally. Sorry, but that was not how we became America. Also, since you brought up the “melting pot”. What melting pot are you referring to when in today’s society I see Mexican flags being flown at rallies and a Muslims in the USA want Sharia law? The melting pot meant assimilation into the American way of culture and society, not keeping your own.
The federal Commission of Fine Arts has given its preliminary approval for a taller White House fence to better protect the presidential mansion after a rash of fence-hopping incidents.
The commission on Thursday voted to approve an 11-foot-7-inch barrier surrounding the White House facility after a presentation by the U.S. Secret Service and the National Park Service. The new fence would replace the current 7-foot barrier.
The new fence “incorporates anti-climb and intrusion detection technology, while respecting the historical significance and visitor experience at the White House and President’s Park,” the Secret Service and Park Service said in a joint statement.
The commission, an independent federal agency charged with reviewing design and aesthetics at federal facilities, among other things, will still need to sign off on the final design, which will be refined and finalized in the coming months. The Secret Service and the Park Service hope to begin construction on the new White House fence by 2018.
A set of temporary barriers have been placed around the White House since last year to keep visitors away from the current White House fence after a number of security incidents showed that it could be easily scaled. The temporary barricades prevent tourists and visitors from approaching the fence itself.
How come Obama’s “OPEN BORDERS” philosophy is not implemented at his own house? Next up, Barack and Michelle will be telling us to eat cake.
Disgusting!!! Female Trump Supporter Hit in Face with an Egg … Others Attacked by Individuals Carrying Mexican Flags at San Jose, CA Trump Rally
JUST DISGUSTING …
A violent protest began outside a Donald Trump rally in San Jose, California as demonstrators attacked Trump supporters with eggs, water balloons, bottles and their fists. Many did so while burning American flags and waiving Mexican flags. REALLY? Keep it up folks and all will side with Trump because if this is what is against Trump … count me all in for The Donald.
You gave the right to peacefully protest, you don’t have the right to do this. The stupidity was those in the crowds of protesters. There were 300 protesters outside and 10,000 supporters inside. Huh, all this while waving Mexican flags. Four people were arrested. Remember when this used to be America? Folks, wake the hell up and take your country back. If you even care.
Protests outside a Donald Trump rally in downtown San Jose spun out of control Thursday night when some demonstrators attacked the candidate’s supporters.
Protesters jumped on cars, pelted Trump supporters with eggs and water balloons, snatched signs and stole “Make America Great” hats off supporters’ heads before burning the hats and snapping selfies with the charred remains.
Several people were caught on camera punching Trump supporters. At least one attacker was arrested, according to CNN, although police did not release much information.
“The San Jose Police Department made a few arrests tonight after the Donald Trump Rally,” police said in a statement. “As of this time, we do not have specific information on the arrests made. There has been no significant property damage reported. One officer was assaulted.”
In one video circulating widely on social media, two protesters tried to protect a Trump supporter as other protesters attacked him and called him names.
Another video captured a female Trump supporter taunting protesters before being surrounded and struck in the face with an egg and water balloons.
Police eventually cleared the protest, which they called an “unlawful assembly.”
