We are coming up on a busy and potentially momentous week. Congress is returning to Washington, which is always a dangerous proposition. As the famous quote goes, “No man’s life, liberty or property is safe when Congress is in session.” While Congress is in session, it at best does nothing helpful and at worst is destructive to America, this week we will see one of the worst proposals America has ever been faced with. For several reasons, this issue will be at the forefront this week. What is the issue and why will it be so visible this week? The issue is amnesty. There are several reasons why it will be in the forefront this week. First, you will see Barack Obama pushing the issue. He will be talking about amnesty, gun control gay rights and anything else he can think of to avoid talking about the most important issue of all. The most important issue of all is the economy. Friday’s jobs report was a disaster. While the cooked numbers for unemployment are falling, the numbers behind Obama’s faux unemployment rate are shocking. 90 million Americans have left the workforce. Out of a nation of about 310 million, 90 million adults are not in the work force. Our work force is now the same size it was in 1979. If those who have given up looking for work were included in the unemployment calculations, the rate would be near 12%. So Obama will talk about amnesty this week. He will have a lot of help from the so-called “Gang of 8” as well as Washington Republican insiders who are pushing amnesty. Amnesty is being pushed this week so its supporters can try to ram it through Congress without any examination. This will be another case of a 1000 page bill that Congressmen and Senators will vote on without knowing what is in the bill. But here is what the amnesty advocates won’t tell you. They will trot out the children of the illegals many of whom were brought to this country as small children and many who only know America. However most of the illegals are adults. Most of them are not well-educated adults. Compulsory education in Mexico only runs through the 6th grade. Can you imagine trying to navigate our complex society with only a 6th grade education? Then throw in the fact it is not even an American education. In 1986, we had amnesty. The figure that is thrown out for this amnesty is 11 million. What we learned from 1986 is that they number of people who will apply for amnesty is far larger than what Congress expects. Even now with just the discussion of amnesty border crossings have increased significantly. We also learned from 1986, border security will never happen. But the real danger to America is the cost amnesty will have. Our nation teeters on the edge of bankruptcy thanks to liberal spending policies and amnesty will be like throwing gasoline on a fire. In economic terms, the value illegals have to the economy is that they can be paid a lower wage than is legal. Because of their status, illegals can’t really complain about this and employers can take advantage of them. Once they become legal, they will be able to demand minimum wage, benefits and the other perks of employment. In economic terms, they are no longer worth the cost. What does that mean? That means large numbers of them will end up on welfare. Even now, though it is illegal, significant numbers of illegal aliens receive welfare. This number will explode after amnesty. We will see the number of people in this nation who are not in the workforce expand from 90 million to well over 100 million or perhaps even higher. 10 to 20 million recipients of amnesty will flood the rolls of Obamacare, driving the cost of that program to the point of where it bankrupts the nation. The week that is coming is going to focus not on the economy but on amnesty. We must tell our Senators and Congressmen in no uncertain terms amnesty must be voted down. And while we are at it we must remind them, “It’s the economy, stupid!”

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
