President Trump Considers Shutting Down Southern Border to Thwart Caravan. Here’s What His Plan Looks Like.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

President Trump is preparing to take action to stop the migrant caravan from invading the United States at the southern border by closing it down with 1,000 active duty Army troops.

Under Trump’s plan to shut down the border, all migrants would be barred entry into the United States, even those coming here to seek asylum. Laws in our immigration system allow individuals desiring to enter the country by claiming they are fleeing persecution and applying for asylum. These individuals are usually held and receive a hearing, but this new move would put a stop to that with the justification being “national security.”

“The Trump administration would publish fast-track regulation that would restrict certain migrants’ ability to seek asylum. The regulation would be paired with a related proclamation from President Donald Trump,” according to Politico. But no full plan has been approved yet.

“The administration is considering a wide range of administrative, legal and legislative options to address the Democrat-created crisis of mass illegal immigration,” a White House official said. “No decisions have been made at this time. Nor will we forecast to smugglers or caravans what precise strategies will or will not be deployed.”

Trump is also preparing “to send as many as 1,000 active-duty Army troops to help secure the southern border — as he works to stop what he has called an ‘onslaught’ of immigrants only days before the midterm elections,” the New York Times reports.

Kirstjen Nielsen, head of the Department of Homeland Security, said Thursday that “everything is on the table.”

“If they come here illegally with no legitimate reason to stay, they absolutely will be apprehended and removed immediately,” she told Fox News. “They should be seeking refuge in Mexico. To ignore refuge and continue, in some cases, to come to the United States raises questions of what their real motives are.”

Trump has taken an increasingly hard line on the migrant caravan, which some news outlets say has swelled to 14,000 people. “To those in the Caravan, turnaround, we are not letting people into the United States illegally,” he wrote Thursday on Twitter. “Go back to your Country and if you want, apply for citizenship like millions of others are doing!”

President Trump’s plan is not likely going to go over well with liberals, especially those who already feel that his immigration policies, which happen to put American citizens first, are somehow discriminatory.

Bernie Sanders Works Hard For Immigrant Vote, Says He’ll Stop Deportations If He Wins White House

Is that right?

Published

Sen. Bernie Sanders is in full campaign mode, and given his extreme, socialist bent, he’s doing what any good Democratic candidate would do in his position, which pander his pants off. Who is Sanders dedicating his time to sucking up to? The illegal immigrant vote of course. The socialist has stated that if he should win the White House, he fully plans on imposing a moratorium on all deportations, which is sure to win him major points with Democrat voters and those residing in the country illegally. via TheBlaze: Sanders was speaking at an event hosted by the progressive Latino group Mijente in Las Vegas when he unveiled this new immigration proposal. “We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country,” Sanders said. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. And we are going to, as I mentioned — and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.” https://youtu.be/_3uQw6AahII https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1173326838602641408 The proposal presents a clear trajectory of where illegal immigration policy would go under a Sanders administration. If you choose to stop deporting illegal immigrants, the next step down would be to detain them when they are found living in the U.S. illegally. But since detention facilities are already overwhelmed, resulting in poor conditions at some locations, indefinite detention during this deportation moratorium would not be a viable option. So, the only other choice would be to release them — or not seek to find and arrest illegal immigrants at all. Folks just do not seem to understand the threat that illegal immigrants pose to our nation, both in regards to physical safety and economic security. The vast majority of individuals who cross the border illegally end up on welfare programs like…

New Report From CBS Claims Multiple ISIS Fighters In Kurdish Prison Say They’re American And Want To Come Home

The Kurds can gladly keep them.

A CBS reporter recently visited a Syrian prison that was chock full of deplorable, disgusting members of radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which obviously wasn’t much of a story, but what else she found there is making headlines all across the country, and for good reason. Apparently, several of the prisoners she encountered claimed to be ISIS members from America who want to come back home. Yeah, don’t mean to burst your bubbles, guys, but that’s a no from us over here. via TheBlaze: When he was questioned by CBS News foreign correspondent Holly Williams, prisoner and accused ISIS fighter Lirim Sylejmani told her he was from Chicago. “The choices that I made, in somebody’s eyes, the wrong choices, so I face jail time,” he told Williams. He also said that he “just wanted to live under Islamic law” and did not think he had done anything wrong. He added that he wanted to return to the United States, even though he knew that he would likely be put in prison there as well. In another case, a 7-year-old prisoner who claimed to be from New York City told Williams that he had been brought to join ISIS by his parents. A seven-year-old child? Seriously? Many of you reading this have a kid this age in your home. Think about that sweet, young boy or girl being a member of a radical terrorist group, so full of hate, anger, and violence they would be willing to murder others. That’s the kind of monsters that belong to ISIS. The kind who take away a child’s innocence and brainwash them into becoming soldiers in a war that is about nothing more than world domination and spilling blood. It’s so tragic. However, no one should be allowed back over here. Period. Once you’ve…
