|DOJ Seriously Eyes Changes To Media Subpoena Policy|
What does any or all of this have to do with building a wall on our southern border? Everything.
For as long as Americans can remember, the political divide in this nation has been termed Left vs. Right, conservative vs. liberal, or Republican vs. Democrat. For at least a decade, those terms have been little more than orchestrated distractions aimed at obscuring the real and most debilitating divide that has ever afflicted this nation: globalism vs. nationalism.
In 2016, the globalist agenda was suddenly and shockingly rejected by the American electorate, who had been assured the ascension of scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton was a done deal, and that the “fundamental transformation” envisioned by Barack scumbag/liar-nObama — and supported by media, academia, Hollywood, Wall Street, Corporate America, Democrats, Establishment Republicans, and the legions of useful idiots convinced this nation is irredeemably flawed — would continue unabated.
A wall is both a symbolic and substantive rejection of the globalists’ open-border, national sovereignty-despising agenda.
Aided by their corrupt media lackeys, (who do the bidding of the multinational corporations that employ them), globalists insist a wall is ineffective. Yet politicians have them around their homes, the Vatican is surrounded by a wall, and Israel built one to keep terrorists at bay. Moreover, the number of countries who have constructed, or are constructing border barriers, has increased from 16 in 1989, to 65 today.
Globalist arguments against building a wall? It’s “immoral.” Note that this bankrupt assertion is made by the same people who make the most morally bankrupt assertion of all: Illegal aliens commit crimes as “lesser rates” than native Americans. In the last two years alone, ICE arrested 266,000 illegal aliens with criminal records that included 100,000 violent assaults 4,000 murders, and 30,000 sex crimes. In 2016, more Americans died from drug overdoses than the total numbers of deaths recorded in Vietnam — over the course of 20 years. Drugs that include heroin smuggled from Mexico and fentanyl manufactured in Chinese labs and smuggled through Mexico and Canada.
Those would countenance any number of such wholly avoidable crimes because it serves their ideological agenda are utterly despicable.
It’s “too expensive.” Illegal immigration costs America more than $100 billion per year. Reduce that by only 10% and The Wall pays for itself in two-and-a-half years. Greater reductions equal quicker payback. It’s “racist.” As is anything that doesn’t align with globalist dogma.
If we must have a wall, some or all illegals should get a “pathway to citizenship.” In 1986, America granted unambiguous amnesty to 2.7 million illegals — in exchange for a secure border and a crackdown on businesses who hired illegals. The border wasn’t secured and businesses still hire illegals. And after 30 more years of border-busting, 11-22 million illegals live here. Globalists would have you believe this time will be different.
It won’t, and once again America will signal the world that coming here is worth the risk. Moreover, the idea that national security should be used a bargaining chip for anything else is absurd.
“High-tech” surveillance makes a wall unnecessary. High-tech precipitates more arrests … of illegals well-rehearsed by leftist immigration lawyers to exploit our nation’s “catch and release” policy that transmits the exact same risk/reward message. A wall would partially undermine this contemptible policy.
Open-border supporters deflect this reality by insisting more people overstay their visas. That’s true. So why not address both problems? Congress could make illegally crossing the border or overstaying one’s visa a felony that also makes one automatically ineligible for asylum. They could fully institute the E-Verify system and make it a felony to hire illegal workers. Congress could also write a law holding government officials who support sanctuary cities criminally and civilly liable for crimes committed by illegals they harbor, a clear violation of a 2014 Supreme Court ruling reiterating that immigration laws are regulated by the federal government.
That they’ve done none of this reveals how blatantly our lawmakers have capitulated to the globalist agenda.
