Due to the overwhelming number of migrants attempting to cross into America from the southern border, the Department of Homeland Security is taking action.

They are sending 750 additional agents to the border.

Maybe this will open up some Democrat eyes.

Then again, no, no it won’t.

Here’s the DHS press release:

Today, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen issued a memorandum to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan outlining new steps the agency must take to combat the growing security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

“The crisis at our border is worsening, and DHS will do everything in its power to end it,” said Secretary Nielsen. “We will not stand idly by while Congress fails to act yet again, so all options are on the table. We will immediately redeploy hundreds of CBP personnel to the border to respond to this emergency. We will urgently pursue additional reinforcements from within DHS and the interagency. And we will require those seeking to enter the United States to wait in Mexico until an immigration court as reviewed their claims.”

Continued:

The Secretary ordered Commissioner McAleenan to undertake emergency surge operations and immediately increase its temporary reassignment of personnel and resources from across the agency to address the influx of migrants. According to the directive, the CBP Office of Field Operations shall accelerate its planned reallocation of up to 750 officers to Border Patrol Sectors that are affected by the emergency. Moreover, CBP is directed to explore raising that target, is authorized to exceed it, and shall notify the Secretary if reassignments are planned to exceed 2,000 personnel.

Secretary Nielsen further directed CBP to immediately expand the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), a DHS initiative to return aliens to Mexico to wait during the pendency of their U.S. immigration proceedings. The Secretary directed CBP to return hundreds of additional migrants per day above current rates to Mexico, consistent with U.S. law and humanitarian obligations. This increase in returns shall include individuals apprehended or encountered at or between POEs. Moreover, the agency is directed to plan for an expansion of MPP beyond the locations in which it currently operates in California and Texas.

President Trump tweeted:

Democrats, working with Republicans in Congress, can fix the Asylum and other loopholes quickly. We have a major National Emergency at our Border. GET IT DONE NOW!

In just five minutes, 400 illegal aliens were apprehended in El Paso. Again…four hundred apprehended in five minutes.

Democrats say there isn’t a problem at the southern border, but the numbers beg to differ.

And numbers don’t lie.

LOOK:

12 Senate Republicans decided to vote against President Trump’s national emergency at the southern border.

Not one, not two, not three…12. Trump, as you’d imagine, was not at all pleased.

Enter Trump with the only word he really needed to say:

Enough said.

“Veto,” says it all, doesn’t it?

Trump has to fight against his own party in a way Barack Obama never did. Democrats stick together while Republicans have minds of their own, for better or worse.

In this case, worse.

45 then elaborated a bit:

I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country. I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!

Save conservative media!

President Trump Pushes For Massive $2 Trillion Infrastructure Bill To Be ‘Phase 4’ Coronavirus Relief Package

Published

on

President Trump is advocating for Congress to adopt what he callas a “very big and bold” infrastructure investment in future legislation to help fight against the coronavirus, which is currently making thousands of people seriously ill all across the country. The president advocated for a $2 trillion addition to the congressional economic relief bills that are to help workers and businesses who are suffering during this unprecedented pandemic. Trump has stated that he hopes to stimulate employment through a number of federal programs. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4,” Trump tweeted. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1245000074167541761 Before the historic relief package was passed last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers must begin drafting a fourth relief package to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, arguing that the bill that was making its way through Congress was insufficient to address the needs of state and local governments, workers, and other entities affected by the spread of the virus. The economic consequences of the actions we’ve taken in order to fight against this virus have caused quite a stir among the American people, with some folks stating that perhaps the measures taken to stop the spread of the illness are actually going to end up doing more harm than good. Many businesses will be closed permanently due to the shutdown and many others out of work will slide into a hole financially speaking. Perhaps a better measure would’ve been to quarantine those who are sick and allow the young and healthy to remain working? Then again, this disease…

N.H. Gov. Sununu Seeks Disaster Declaration For His State; Extends ‘Stay Home’ Order To May 4

Published

on

The state of New Hampshire is seeking to receive a federal disaster declaration in order to receive additional help that will aid in alleviating the suffering of the citizenry during the coronavirus outbreak that is sweeping the country. Gov. Chris Sununu and the state of New Hampshire are currently set to receive $1.25 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that was passed into law by Congress last week. Many residents have suffered massive economic stress due to losing their jobs and are set to receive additional unemployment benefits to help offset their current hardships. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: The governor signed the Relief for Workers Affected by Coronavirus Act agreement that will give the state 100 percent funding from the federal government for unemployment benefits. Unemployed New Hampshire residents will receive an additional $600 a week in addition to the minimum benefit amount of $32 to $168 a week. The unemployment benefit period will be extended from 26 weeks to 39 weeks. Gov. Sununu recently released a statement saying, “We are making every effort to provide assistance to families who are out of work during this time so that they can focus on what is most important – caring for their families and protecting their health by staying home.” New Hampshire will also be extending business tax collections and interests and dividend payments all the way to June 15. This particular measure is going to impact roughly 98 percent of small businesses and interest and dividend taxpayers. The “stay at home” order the governor issued last week has been made effective until May 4 to help contain the spread of the illness, as well as continuing to keep kids out of school. The state has suspended all standardized testing as of Monday. “While…
