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!

As Riots And Violence Surged In June, So Did Gun Sales According To FBI Data

Published

on

The Black Lives Matter violence, the call for defunding the police, and many cities actually capitulating to those “demands,” have had a very unintended consequence. It seems these actions have motivated more and more Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. According to new data from the FBI indicates that gun sales exploded during the month of June, hitting a brand new all-time high. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “The new coronavirus pandemic, civil unrest after the killing of George Floyd and the ensuing movement to defund police are bringing in new buyers worried about their personal safety, according to buyers, store owners and gun experts,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “In June, background checks for firearms were up 136%, compared to a year earlier … background checks in June for civilians seeking a license to carry were the highest since the FBI began conducting checks 20 years ago.” FBI statistics that were released at the start of the month showed that 3,931,607 background checks were processed last month, which is by far the most ever recorded. The previous all-time record was set in March—when parts of the U.S. began going into shutdown over the coronavirus—when 3,740,688 were conducted. https://twitter.com/BrookingsEcon/status/1282821114553663493 The Journal reports that dealers estimate that some 40% of sales have been going to first-time buyers, “an increase over the normal average of about a quarter,” and say that many of the new buyers “are people who say they never thought they would own a firearm and were previously critical of those who did.” One gun buyer told the media that he was purchasing a gun and applying for a permit because he was scared that police wouldn’t be able to provide him with adequate protection. “I don’t want to ever shoot anybody ever. But if I had…

President Trump Says He’d Be On Board With Michael Flynn Returning To The White House

Published

Michael Flynn

President Trump recently stated that if former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn were to return to the White House, he’d be all for it. Flynn has been through quite an ordeal over the last few years, as it was uncovered that a secret plot involving members of the Obama administration and the FBI was hatched to use him as a means of taking down Donald Trump. Trump conducted an interview with CBS News where he said, “I would. I think he’s a great gentleman. He’s been in the military for many, many decades actually — highly respected.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Trump ousted his first national security adviser for lying to FBI investigators about a conversation with a Russian envoy in December 2016 during the Trump transition, to which Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017. After switching legal teams, Flynn claimed he was set up by the FBI. In May, the Justice Department said they would move to drop the case, with the motion now underway in the courts. Trump said on Monday that he has not ruled out a pardon for his former adviser and would await the result of efforts to dismiss his case. Trump has previously said that Flynn was “targeted in order to try and take down a president.” Some Trump allies are pushing for Flynn’s return to the fold. “He’s the perfect example of deep-state victimization,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Politico in discussing Flynn’s potential to stump for the president on the campaign trail, as he did in 2016. “Great surrogate — lots of people would come to see him.” The left no doubt will be furious over Trump’s comments, particularly since Flynn was supposed to be a key casualty in their war against the president. With their efforts…
