Migrant Caravan 2,000-People Strong Was Marching to America, Then All Are Detained (Details)

That’s a lot of people…

Laws are laws for a reason. You don’t have to obey them but you do have to be prepared to deal with the consequences. That’s kind of the whole point.

Unfortunately, half of the country would rather side with lawbreakers because it makes them feel good. Who cares about rules and regulations? Who needs crazy Republicans to fight for America and uphold her values? Conservatives all just backward-thinking, sister marrying hillbilly’s, anyway!

Thankfully, though, Donald Trump won in 2016. That means the federal government will work hard to keep illegals out of the country, whether it’s a small group masquerading as a family or a caravan comprised of 2,000 people. It’s just a shame that Mexico is now doing more to stem the flow of illegals than are Democrats.

TAPACHULA, Mexico (AP) — Mexican officials broke up a caravan of around 2,000 migrants that had set out from southern Mexico Saturday in the hopes of reaching the United States, amid increasing difficulty obtaining permission to pass through Mexico.

Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula, Chiapas early in the morning had been held up in this city just north of Guatemala for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. The migrants are originally from Central America, Africa and the Caribbean.

For Donald Trump, the cruelty is the point.

His immigration agenda has created the conditions on our border—conditions only bound to get worse. We are better than this.

What I saw in across the border in Matamoros, Mexico is a national embarrassment—one entirely of Trump’s creation.

Make no mistake: his agenda is killing people—and it’s on purpose.

BREAKING: We just heard the terrible news that all 12 of our clients escorted by @JulianCastro were sent back to Mexico. This is of course a mockery of due process. Here is our statement on the matter:

#LetThemIn

The 12 asylum seekers our attorneys, advocates, and Secretary Julian Castro escorted to the Gateway International Bridge of Matamoros and Brownsville this morning have been sent back into Mexico.

Their claims to exemptions to the “Remain in Mexico” policy have been rejected by Brownsville CBP, who have broad discretion over the matter.

Reactions:

Julián Coyote

The blow to the rule of law was an elected representative breaking the law by engaging in human trafficking.

Julian Castro STILL not indicted for people smuggling. Indeed, he mocks the law every day he’s free.

That’s how it should be. You don’t get to decide whether or not they’re accepted. Courts do, and yes, they can stay right there until their day comes.

We tried playing the game their way. They broke the law. Now, it’s our turn. You can wait for your day somewhere else

DC Mayor Labeled Hypocrite After Mask-less Weekend, Despite Her Own Mandate

Do as the Democrats do, not as the Democrats say.

Published

Some of our elected officials just don’t seem to understand the optics game in the least bit, as though they are somehow shielded from certain types of criticisms altogether.  The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to expose these sorts of issues in a very big way, as well, with any number of politicians who think that their own COVID rules don’t apply to them. In Washington DC, the weekend provided us with yet another example of such hypocrisy. Fewer than 24 hours after Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser celebrated her 49th birthday with a DJ and comedian Dave Chappelle, she officiated a wedding at The Line DC, a four-star hotel in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of the city. Despite the mayor’s order, the wedding reception featured hundreds of unmasked guests served by dozens of wait staff, including a conspicuously unmasked Bowser. Bowser, who was not sitting at the table designated for her during wedding toasts, did not wear a mask despite not actively eating or drinking. When approached by the Washington Examiner to explain why she was maskless at an event now legally obligated to enforce mask compliance, security blockaded the free press. The incident was reminiscent of a moral catastrophe committed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi some months ago, after the Democratic Congresswoman was seen galavanting around mask-less inside of a hair salon in The Golden State, despite the fact that local ordinances prohibited both mask-less and indoor styling appointments.

FDA Moves to Expedite COVID Vaccine Approval in Bid to Lessen Reluctancy

But will simply speeding up the process convince anyone of its safety?

Published

As it stands today, the number of Americans who don’t want a COVID-19 vaccine is roughly equal to the number of Americans who don’t have a COVID-19 vaccine, and that is troublesome for the Biden administration. The President had publicly set a number of lofty goals as it pertains to the coronavirus vaccine, namely hoping to have around 70% of the population at least partially-vaccinated by July 4th.  As we enter August, that number is much closer to 50%, and this isn’t nearly enough to ensure herd immunity. Now, in an effort to convince more Americans to get on board with the inoculation, the FDA is going to expedite the transition from “emergency use authorization” to “approved” for the vaccines themselves. FDA spokesperson Abby Capobianco said the agency is working on “identifying additional resources such as personnel and technological resources from across the agency and opportunities to reprioritize other activities, in order to complete our review to help combat this pandemic surge.” The agency has deployed an “all hands on deck” strategy for this endeavor, Peter Marks, director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said in an interview. The Pfizer vaccine has so far been distributed under FDA emergency-use authorization it received in December. The company applied for full approval on May 7. “We recognize that for some, the FDA approval of Covid-19 vaccines may bring additional confidence and encourage them to get vaccinated,” Capobianco said in a statement. “FDA staff will conduct a thorough review process, while balancing the incredible sense of urgency necessary, both of which are needed to ensure that any vaccine that is authorized or approved meets our rigorous standards for safety, effectiveness, and quality.” Of course, many Americans are already of the impression that the speed at which the vaccines were developed could lend itself…
