Is the Situation at the Border a National Emergency or Not? by The Elephant's Child

Another day and another vicious murder by an illegal immigrant in California, a sanctuary state. 300 illegals were apprehended at the Texas border, In Arizona, another bunch was caught with 160 pounds of meth and fentanyl. In Texas, there are 200 cases of mumps in detention. In February, the Border Patrol dealt with 600,000 illegals, the highest number in a decade. Illegals have been told that having a child with them, will help them to apply for amnesty. The child may or may not belong to the illegals, and once the illegals have applied for amnesty and get a court date (at what point they will disappear never to be seen again). The child or children will be circulated back across the border to help another group apply for amnesty. We have 300 dead Americans each week from heroin. 200,000 criminals are responsible of 100,000 assaults,30,000 sex crimes and 4,000 murders.

In our Congress, our elected representatives can’t seem to understand why President Trump would have the nerve to declare a National Emergency, and the arguments seem not to be about the plaintive cries from the Border Patrol for help, but about the niceties of national emergency declarations, and just who is in charge here.

If you feel the urge to comment, don’t comment on articles you have read, comment directly to your elected representatives. Go to Senate.gov or House.gov, and follow the directions to find your very own elected person. If you are, like me, represented entirely by Democrats, go find the person you want to influence. If it is your own rep, you can also comment at their office in your home state. They don’t particularly want to hear from you, but your attention matters, and they really do pay attention to the attention they get. They work for us, they just forget that until reminded. They have highly-paid cushy jobs and they want to be returned to office.



National Emergency? You Can’t Do That! by The Elephant's Child

President Trump did exactly what he said he would, and declared a national emergency over the border, and of course the Democrats exploded in feigned outrage. I did mention that Obama declared a national emergency something like 13 times, so the hissy-fit seems somewhat misplaced, but of course it is all in the preparation for the upcoming court fights. Democrats want open borders. The illegal votes are important for them, and they’re hoping to switch enough votes in targeted states to increase their control of the House of Representatives to make it more permanent. They really don’t like to be out of power.

And of course, they deny every tiny bit of information on which the president has based his declaration of an emergency. Fewer illegals crossing the border now, no drugs except at the ports of entry, and they’ve given more money for technology to find the drugs that are coming through. Attacks on the president’s character, his information, his knowledge, and the usual claim that his only possible reason for not wanting illegal immigrants from Central America is that they are “brown people.” And how interesting that at the same time, they refuse to see or acknowledge the ‘Angel’ families who have lost members of their family to criminal illegal aliens.

Some of the vast field of would-be candidates for the 2020 nomination are joining the push for tearing down existing walls. Pandering to the illegals already here for their illegal votes? Nancy Pelosi outlined the Democrats game plan early on. The governing law is the National Emergencies Act of 1974. The Free Beacon covers the law thoroughly, Everybody plans to sue, picking the most favorable to their cause venue, and it will wind its way through the courts, probably ending at the Supreme Court. White House lawyers seem to believe they have a winning case.

Democrat’s position on the border has been clear for some time. Obama’s invention of the DACA amnesty was clearly illegal, and the results have been even worse than anticipated. Few have gone to college, and a large percentage never finished high school. The fraud rate has been estimated at 40%-50%, and very few have enlisted in the military. What is most discouraging is the Left’s drive for absolute power which is more appropriate to other kinds of governance like Russia or China. What’s the old saying –”Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The results are playing out for all to see in Venezuela, where children are starving to death, because there is no food, and Maduro will not relinquish the presidency even though he has been voted out legally. Nor will he allow the food aid we have sent – into the country. Wonderful system, socialism.
