Progressive socialists have gone so far as the defend MS-13 and working with fellow leftists and RINO Republicans to push for open borders – to fight for sanctuary cities to protect the criminals within the city limits and allow these same criminals back on the streets to further harm the citizens of this country.
President Trump has rightfully enforced “zero tolerance” leading to the leftists and celebrities, who no one listens to, loudly declare a “holocaust.” There has been legislation proposed that would solve family separation, but the leftists under the auspices of Chuck Schumer rejected this proposal out of hand. Schumer, along with other far leftist socialists want to see the return of “catch and release” against the wishes of the majority of American taxpayers.
Furthering their Alinsky style tactics, the leftists are moving towards confrontation. Peter Fonda has threatened Barron, the Presidents son. Fonda wants to put him in a cage with pedophiles and let him be raped. This type of Morality is rationalized by the claim that all conservatives are evil, and want to do as much damage as possible to “people of color.”
These leftists have found that blacks are no longer buying the garbage they spew and are turning away from the very party that has kept them in poverty for the past 40 years. Democrats need the illegal votes to maintain some power. The new illegals will be lavished with benefits by the socialists and vote for them to keep those benefits. They are already voting in California, somewhere around 2 million voted in the last election, and more are to come with the motor voter bill that signs you up to vote when you get a license without any vetting.
Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar suggested that if migrants want asylum, they should follow the law regarding what asylum seekers are required to follow before being accepted. The asylum laws as written by both the UN and the United States require migrants to claim asylum in the first safe nation, meaning those from Central America should apply for asylum in Mexico.
Every country is a sovereign nation with the right to protect the borders to keep its citizens safe. The progressive socialist argument that these illegal border crossers have “rights” as soon as they cross the border is a lie. We should not continue to give the rights to these people who are NOT American citizens.
The only answer is to stop illegal border crossers at the border, and immediately turn them back to where they came. What the socialists on the left ignore and will never state on national media is that a majority of whites, blacks, and even 5 in 10 Hispanic Americans, support the plan to send the illegals that are invading our country back to where they came and must be held as a family until that return takes place.
It was the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the Flores v Reno decision that started the race to our borders by illegals knowing that if they could bring a child with them will be released into the country instead of being sent back.
But the basic premise that is being ignored is this: If you don’t want to go to jail, don’t come here illegally. You will be put in jail, and you will be deported. Because you have a child with you will not lead to you being allowed in our country. The progressive socialists like Adam Schiff will never admit to the incentive that is causing the flood of our border, but the American people know it and will remember in November. Personal responsibility has been pushed to the side for the progressive socialist meme of “victomology” In November we must make personal responsibility paramount again.
