Coulter: Please, No More ‘Border Security’

Ann Coulter talks about the illegal immigration crisis with the candor, sarcasm and irony that few can.


by Ann Coulter:

The media are trying to convince Trump that if he abandons the wall, he’ll be a statesman, so that as soon as he folds, they can start making fun of him as an untrustworthy liar.

Everyone knows that we can never have a secure border without an impermeable barrier — something like a wall — across all of it. The Democrats know it, the voters know it, and the millions of illegals hurtling toward our border like cannonballs know it.

The Democrats’ latest idea is to call a wall “immoral, ineffective and expensive.”

If they think a wall is “immoral,” then they’re admitting it’s effective. An ineffective wall would merely be a place for illegals to stop and get a little shade before continuing their march into the United States.

Democrats’ backup argument is to cite — every four minutes on MSNBC — Trump’s claim that Mexico would pay for the wall. We’re all baffled by Trump not having already taxed remittances to Mexico to pay for the wall (100 percent within the president’s authority under various banking regulations), but if we’re going to start listing the promises Trump hasn’t kept, this is going to be a long column.

In point of fact, however, he never said Mexico would pre-pay. We can tax remittances anytime.

To keep the Third World masses flowing across our un-walled border, the media are demanding that Trump agree to nonspecific “border security.” It’s like ordering a Starbucks and instead of getting a coffee, you’re told to have more “pep.” Now move along. Here’s your change.

Would liberals accept such airy statements of intent in lieu of clear legal commands for any of the things they care about? (Not to be confused with “our country,” which they do not care about.)

Instead of EPA emissions standards, with specific parts per million of pollutants allowed into lakes and rivers, how about a law promoting “enhanced appreciation of God’s bounty”? Emissions standards are immoral and ineffective!

Nearly every Republican presidential candidate tried to con voters with these meaningless catchphrases about “border security.”

Here are The Des Moines Register’s summaries of some of the candidates’ positions on immigration a few weeks before the 2016 Iowa caucus:

Jeb Bush: “has called for enhanced border security.”

Marco Rubio: “proposes … improved security on the border.”

John Kasich: “believes border security should be strengthened.”

Chris Christie: “urges … using technology to improve border surveillance …”

Rand Paul: “would secure the border immediately.”

Carly Fiorina: “would secure the border, which she says requires only money and manpower.”

They all lost.

The guy who won: “Trump has said many illegal immigrants are rapists and are bringing drugs and crime to the United States. He has called for building a wall along the southern border, and has said he would make Mexico pay for it. He said he would immediately terminate President Barack Obama’s ‘illegal executive order on immigration.’”

Trump got more votes than any other Republican in the history of presidential primaries. No one was falling for “border security” then, and they aren’t now.

But instead of doing what he said and building a wall, Trump has hired people who don’t even grasp that the point is to make it unattractive to break into our country.

On ABC’s “This Week” last Sunday, Trump’s head of Customs and Border Protection, Kevin McAleenan, announced plans to give illegal alien kids free medical care at the border: “What we’ve done immediately, (Homeland Security) Secretary (Kirstjen) Nielsen and I have directed that we do medical checks of children 17 and under as they come into our process.”

Apparently, our working class is rolling in so much free health care that now our country is diverting medical resources to treat other countries’ sick kids. Read more HERE.

Migrant Families Cross Texas Border Seeking Asylum


Government reports indicate that more than 1,100 Central American migrants cross illegally per day into the U.S. along the southwest border with Mexico. Breitbart News traveled to the Rio Grande Valley Sector in South Texas where hundreds of migrants cross daily.

Breitbart News’ Border/Cartel Chronicles Editor-in-Chief Brandon Darby and journalist Ildefonso Ortiz traveled to the Texas-Mexico border to film groups of Central American migrants as they crossed from Reynosa, Mexico, and entered the U.S. The trip followed reports of hundreds of migrants crossing the border in this sector on a daily basis. Darby and Ortiz interviewed some of the families to learn why they are making the hazardous and costly journey to the U.S.

Following the interviews, Darby and Ortiz discussed the impact these migrants have on keeping wages down for Americans seeking lower-skilled employment. The migrants are currently able to exploit loopholes in U.S. immigration and human trafficking laws by attempting to claim asylum. They also discussed the revenue stream these migrants represent to the Mexican cartels.

“You think about U.S. workers,” Darby said, “and especially low-income U.S. workers — you think about U.S. sovereignty — and you think ‘This is messed up.’”

“And then, on the other hand,” Darby continued, “you think, ‘well, you can’t really blame them. We have policies that allow it.’”

One of the women said she came to the U.S. because of domestic violence and the inability to see justice in her own country. She did not explain why she did not seek asylum in Mexico or some other country along her route. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, offered four recommendations to President Donald Trump and his administration on how to solve the border crisis caused by the stream of migrant caravans seeking entry into the U.S. via Mexico.

Vaughan offered her remarks in a Friday interview with Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight.

LISTEN:

1 – Close the Border.

2 – Refuse Bogus Asylum Claims.

3 – Refuse Entry to Migrants and Send Them Home.

4 – Mandate Asylum Claims be Made in Consulates or Embassies in Home Countries, Not U.S. Ports of Entry.

Will Donald Trump Stop the Caravan, or Are These Your New Neighbors?

President Donald Trump threatened Thursday to send the military to block the migrant caravan heading for the United States border.

“I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The caravan of migrants that began in Honduras has grown to several thousand people after passing into Guatemala as it heads for the Mexican border. Other Hondurans are leaving the country to join it.

Trump threatened to stop all federal payments to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador if the countries failed to block the flow and blamed Democrats for rejecting a reform of immigration laws allowing them to claim asylum. He also claimed that the caravan included criminals. Read the rest of this article at breitbart.com.

The Mexican national accused in the murder of U.S Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry is now reported to be in U.S. custody in Arizona. The accused killer has been fighting extradition since his arrest in April 2017.

“The Terry family had to wait seven years for this moment,” Agent Terry’s brother, Kent Terry, said in a Facebook post on Tuesday evening. “Finally, justice will be served and hopefully a little piece of mind.”

Shortly after 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Wired Sources tweeted “Mexico has extradited to the U.S. Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, charged with murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.”


The Terry family confirmed the news to Breitbart Texas shortly after.

The family of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry attended the unveiling of a statue cast in his honor at the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station in Arizona.

“This is a step in the right direction,” Kent Terry told Breitbart Texas. “But I will be honest with you, we can forget that those who orchestrated this reckless scandal known as ‘Fast and Furious.’ They still have not held accountable. [Emphasis added]  

“President Donald Trump told Attorney General Jeff Sessions sessions to release the documents related to this cases and Sessions still hasn’t done so,” Kent continued. I myself will not have peace until there are answers, documents, and accountability. My family has taken and continues to take an emotional beating daily and we still won’t have closure till we get documents.” Read the rest of this story at breitbart.com.

Michelle Malkin on What She Wants to See From Trump in 2018: ‘The Wall, the Wall, the Wall’

By Michelle Malkin

 

President Donald Trump predicted that 2018 will be a “fantastic” year, and Michelle Malkin wants to see his administration make constructing a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border a top priority.

Malkin, a political commentator and CRTV host, said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday that Trump is aware of the obstacles he will face from Congress and the establishment in both parties as he looks to enact his agenda in 2018.

She pointed out that there is now a strong push in Congress for a fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants, many of whom came to the U.S. as children. Read more at insider.foxnews.com.
