President Trump Planning To Extend Invitation To Reporters For Tour Of Border Detention Centers

Maybe now they’ll stop harping on this non-story.

President Trump spoke on Sunday stating that he plans to invite reporters to go take a tour of the border detention centers holding illegal immigrants at the southern borders so they can see the kind of conditions these folks are living in for themselves.

All of this comes hot on the heels of the massive controversy stirred up by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who compared the detention centers to “concentration camps,” which also drew quite a bit of well-deserved heat for the freshman congresswoman.

Here’s TheBlaze with more details:

According to CNN, President Trump was asked by a reporter whether he would visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility in Clint, Texas, which The New York Times recently described as “the public face of the chaos at America’s southern border.”

“What we’re going to do is I’m going to start showing some of these detention centers, because — to the press — I want the press to go in and see them,” the president explained.

President Trump said he had already spoken with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Mark Morgan and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan to make arrangements for the press tours.

“We’re going to have some of the press go in because they are crowded, and we’re the ones complaining about they’re crowded,” Trump said.

“They’re crowded because people come up, but now thanks to Mexico, it’s slowing down greatly, and I think you’ll start seeing some very good numbers,” the president continued. “But it is crowded. But we want to have the press go in and see because you know what The New York Times, it really is fake news.”

Secretary McAleenan spoke with ABC News on Sunday saying that the Times’ story on the conditions at these facilities was “unsubstantiated,” noting there is adequate food and water available for those who were being held at the center. He also said the facility is cleaned every day.

This is just another cog in the wheel of the liberal machine that is desperately attempting to destroy Trump and his administration any way they can because of the upcoming election.

Manufacturing controversies where none exists has become a favorite activity of the radical left in this country. Hopefully, once reporters get a look at the detention centers for themselves the madness will stop.

Barr Labels Seattle, New York City, And Portland As ‘Anarchist Jurisdictions’

Published

Attorney General William Barr has come out and labeled the cities of New York, Seattle, and Portland as “anarchist jurisdictions,” stating they have “permitted violence and destruction of property to persist,” after the president signed an executive order to limit federal funds sent to these places in the U.S. The announcement came via the Justice Department on Monday morning, saying the leadership in these three cities “have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities” for months now following the death of George Floyd, which led to an explosion in violent protests, riots, and looting. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Barr said Monday. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.” Trump’s early September memorandum stated that “it is the policy and purpose of the United States Government to protect the lives and property of all people in the United States from unlawful acts of violence and destruction” and that “without law and order, democracy cannot function.” The president said that “anarchy has recently beset some of our States and cities” and claimed that “for the past few months, several State and local governments have contributed to the violence and destruction in their jurisdictions by failing to enforce the law, disempowering and significantly defunding their police departments, and refusing to accept offers of Federal law enforcement assistance.” He…

Tom Cotton Weighs In On Filling RGB Seat: Democrats Who Voted For Kavanaugh Won Reelection; Those That Didn’t, Lost

Published

Sen. Tom Cotton made a very good argument for why Democrats should vote in favor of filling the SCOTUS seat left vacant by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by pointing out that those Democrats who supported Kavanaugh got reelected, while those that voted against him didn’t. This is a great strategy. What most Democrats want more than anything is to do maintain power and stay in office so they can get paid to do nothing, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to do so. Cotton knows that, hence, bringing up this very valid point. via The Daily Wire: “In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.” “So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.” Cotton later added that people should not “discount Democratic votes either” in the upcoming hearings after President Donald Trump announces who he is nominating to the nation’s highest court. https://youtu.be/0N2I3GVO_q4 We absolutely need to make sure that a true, pro-life, conservative appointee is confirmed and placed on the Supreme Court, as…
