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.

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!

New Poll From Virginia Has Bloomberg Tied For Lead With Sanders

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who enjoyed a victory in New Hampshire’s primary and a good showing in Iowa, is tied for the top spot in a Virginia poll with former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Virginia is one of the larger states to be holding a primary on Super Tuesday in two weeks. Check out the details from Fox News: Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at 18 percent in the poll, just 4 percentage points behind Sanders and Bloomberg. Their slight edge over the former vice president is within the survey’s sampling error. According to the poll, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg registers at 11 percent, with Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at 9 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 5 percent, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii at just 1 percent and billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer at less than 1 percent.

So does Bloomberg, the billionaire Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat who announced his presidential bid less than three months ago. Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at…

DOJ Launches Five Probes Into Investigators Involved In Mueller Russia Probe

Published

on

Several of the investigators involved in the Mueller Russia probe, Ukraine investigation, and matters related to Hillary Clinton and her various scandals around the 2016 presidential election are all being investigated by the Department of Justice. As you can imagine, the left is probably very nervous about this, hoping that whatever conclusions are reached do not expose further activities by the “resistance” within the government working against the Trump administration. Check out the details from Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr appointed the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeff Jensen to review the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Justice Department officials told Fox News that Jensen will work hand-in-hand with Brandon Van Grack — the lead prosecutor on the Flynn case — during his review. Barr last week confirmed that the Justice Department is reviewing information about Ukraine coming from President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and others. Barr has tapped U.S. Attorney from the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott Brady to handle that Ukraine information. That review comes after the president was acquitted on charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — stemming from the Ukraine controversy. Last year, Barr appointed U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham to review the events leading up to the 2016 presidential election and through Trump’s January 20, 2017 inauguration. But, as Fox News first reported, Durham has since expanded his investigation to cover a post-election timeline spanning the spring of 2017 — when Mueller was appointed as special counsel. Another probe looking into the Clinton Foundation is also still underway, along with further looks into the granting of a FISA warrant during the Russia probe and Clinton server document release. These are all shady incidents that desperately need further examination to expose any political corruption…
