Leftist media mischaracterize border wall as “Trump’s.” It’s OURS!
Here we go again. Compromise to Republicrats and Leftists always includes provisions for granting amnesty to illegal invaders. It’s the old song and dance that John McCain and Jon Kyl peddled for years, followed by the same two-step with performers McCain and Flake, as we noted back in 2013. McCain minced no words telling us we had to accept amnesty.
In its latest incarnation, there’s a new component added to the mix. It’s the reliable magician’s trick of misdirection, which falls flat when wily senators rather than David Copperfield are on stage. Cunning and deceit are not showstoppers. Americans are weary of the porous border, its accompanying crime and the lies being proffered to cover the deception.
Six RINO Senators including Lindsey Graham,(SC); Thom Tillis,(NC); Lamar Alexander,(TN); Rob Portman,(OH); Lisa Murkowski,(AK); and Susan Collins,(ME) are swaying and swooning to the ludicrous amnesty and farcical DACA tune, as they play to their business class campaign donors desirous of cheap labor.
Then Presto! Graham has an epiphany, issuing this statement chiding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for “her refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened”… opining, “It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”
Earlier Graham concluded that under a potential deal “the president gets his security funding and can add some things to the mix that would draw some bipartisan support.”
Let’s get this single fact straight: Making deals with the devil makes you a demonic pawn. Graham, a member of the infamous “Gang of Eight,” was integral to the many versions of McComprehensive Immigration Reform, despised by American citizens. Their frustration set the stage for the presidency of Donald J. Trump, who fully comprehended the level of discontent and remains keenly aware that border security is national security.
Graham obviously missed the fact that Pelosi said there will be no funding for any type of border barrier — although she does make her priorities clear. The ability to fund killing human babies remains paramount, yet national security is “immoral.”
It’s time to put the numbers in perspective. The Immigration Reform Law Institute’s 2017 study revealed illegal immigration to the U.S. costs federal, state and local taxpayers a staggering net cost of $116 billion a year — an increase of $16 billion compared to previous estimates. Consider the relative costs as the Washington Post reports today that “another caravan of illegal invaders is forming in Honduras, with plans to embark next week on a journey that will once again test the immigration policies of Mexico and the United States.”
