President Trump Addresses Executive Order and Visa Suspension During MCCA Speech (w/ transcript)…

President Trump spoke today to an audience of Sheriffs and Police during the winter MCCA conference.  Video and Transcript below:

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much.  This is — great to be with people I truly feel comfortable with.  Please sit down.  They’ll say I didn’t get a standing ovation because they never sat down.  (Laughter.)  And I say, I got one standing ovation because they never sat down.

But I want to thank you.  I have great, great love for what you do and the way you do it.  And when I’m with the police chiefs and I’m with the sheriffs of our country — and these are the big ones.  These are the really big ones.

I just want to thank you very much.  And I thought before I spoke about what we’re really here to speak about, I would read something to you.  Because you can be a lawyer, or you don’t have to be a lawyer; if you were a good student in high school or a bad student in high school, you can understand this.

trump-portraitAnd it’s really incredible to me that we have a court case that’s going on so long.  As you know, in Boston, we won it with a highly respected judge and a very strong opinion, but now we’re in an era that, let’s just say, they are interpreting things differently than probably 100 percent of the people in this room.  I’d like to almost know, does anybody disagree when I read this.

But I’m going to read what’s in dispute, what’s in question.  And you will see this — it’s INA 212(f) 8 U.S.C. 1182(f):  “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President” — okay, now, this isn’t just me, this is for Obama, for Ronald Reagan, for the President.  And this was done, very importantly, for security — something you people know more about than all of us.  It was done for the security of our nation, the security of our citizens, so that people come in who aren’t going to do us harm.

And that’s why it was done.  And it couldn’t have been written any more precisely.  It’s not like, oh, gee, we wish it were written better.  It was written beautifully.  So just listen, here’s what it says.  This is what they’re arguing:

“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens” — okay, the entry, the entry of any aliens — “or of any class of aliens” — so any aliens, any class of aliens — “into the United States” — so the entry of people into the United States.  Let’s say, just to be precise, of aliens into the United States.

So any time — “whenever the President finds that the entry of any alien or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States” — right?  So if I find, as President, that a person or group of people will be detrimental to the interests of the United States — and certainly there’s lots of examples that we have, but you shouldn’t even have them, necessarily — he may be — and “he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary…”

Now, the only mistake is they should have said “he or she.”  But hopefully, it won’t be a she for at least another seven years.  After that, I’m all — (laughter and applause.)  See?  I just noticed that, actually.  I just noticed it.  I’m saying, whoa, this is not politically correct.  It’s correct, but it’s not politically correct, you know, this is the old days.

He may by proclamation and for such period as he shall deem necessary — so here it is, people coming in — suspend the entry of all aliens.  Right?  That’s what it says.  It’s not like — again, a bad high school student would understand this.  Anybody would understand this.  Suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens.  Okay, so you can suspend the aliens, right?  You can suspend the aliens from coming in — very strong — or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

Okay.  So you can suspend, you can put restrictions, you can do whatever you want.  And this is for the security of the country — which, again, you’re the chiefs, you’re the sheriffs.  You understand this.

And I listened to lawyers on both sides last night, and they were talking about things that had just nothing to do with it.  I listened to a panel of judges, and I’ll comment on that — I will not comment on the statements made by certainly one judge.  But I have to be honest that if these judges wanted to, in my opinion, help the court in terms of respect for the court, they’d what they should be doing.  I mean, it’s so sad.

They should be — when you read something so simple and so beautifully written, and so perfectly written — other than the one statement, of course, having to do with he or she — but when you read something so perfectly written and so clear to anybody, and then you have lawyers and you watched — I watched last night in amazement, and I heard things that I couldn’t believe, things that really had nothing to do with what I just read.

And I don’t ever want to call a court biased, so I won’t call it biased.  And we haven’t had a decision yet.  But courts seem to be so political, and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what’s right.  And that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important.

Right now, we are at risk because of what happened.  General Kelly is an extremely talented man and a very good man — now Secretary Kelly, Homeland Security.  We are doing our job.  He’s a great man.  (Applause.)  We’re doing our job.  And one of the reasons you probably heard that we did it so quickly — in fact, I said, let’s give a one-month notice, and then law enforcement — and General Kelly was so great because he said, we totally knew about it.  We knew about everything.  We do things well.  We did things right.

But the law enforcement people said to me, oh, you can’t give a notice, because if you give a notice that you’re going to be really tough in one month from now, or in one week from now — I suggested a month and I said, well, what about a week?  They said, no, you can’t do that, because then people are going to pour in before the toughness goes on.  Do you people agree?  I mean, you know more about law than anybody, law enforcement.  (Applause.)

So I wanted to give, like, a month.  Then I said, well, what about a week?  They said, well, then you’re going to have a whole pile of people perhaps — perhaps — with very evil intentions coming in before the restrictions.

So there it is, folks.  It’s as plain as you can have it.  I didn’t — and I was a good student.  I understand things.  I comprehend very well, okay?  Better than I think almost anybody.  And I want to tell you, I listened to a bunch of stuff last night on television that was disgraceful.  It was disgraceful.  Because what I just read to you is what we have, and it just can’t be written any plainer or better.  And for us to be going through this — and, by the way, a highly, highly respected judge in Boston ruled very strongly in our favor.  You heard that.

In fact, I said to my people, why don’t you use the Boston case?  And there were reasons why they couldn’t use the Boston case.  This one came later for various reasons.  But use the Boston case.  And I won’t read that, but there were statements made by that judge — who, again, highly respected — that were right on.  They were perfect.  They were perfect.

So I think it’s sad.  I think it’s a sad day.  I think our security is at risk today.  And it will be at risk until such time as we are entitled and get what we are entitled to as citizens of this country.  As chiefs, as sheriffs of this country, we want security.

One of the reasons I was elected was because of law and order and security.  It’s one of the reasons I was elected.  Also jobs and lots of other things.  But I think one of the strongest reasons is security.  And they’re taking away our weapons one by one, that’s what they’re doing.  And you know it and I know it, and you people have been very unhappy for a long period of time.  And I can read the polls maybe better than anybody because it seems that I understood the polls a lot better than many of the pollsters understood the polls — assuming they were honest polls, which I think probably many of them weren’t.  I really believe that.  (Applause.)

But we need security in our country.  We have to allow you folks to do your job.  You’re great people, great people.  Great men and women.  And we have to allow you to do your job.  And we have to give you the weapons that you need.  And this is a weapon that you need.  And they’re trying to take it away from you, maybe because of politics or maybe because of political views.  We can’t let that happen.

So with that, let’s get on to business, right?  It’s really something.  Thank you.  (Applause.)

I want to thank Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and Chief Tom Manger for your leadership and, frankly, for the service.  You have had great service.  Everyone has told me about you two legendary people.  All of us here today are united by one shared mission:  to serve and protect the public of the United States.

During my campaign for President, I had the chance to spend time with law enforcement officials all across our country.  They are the most incredible people you will ever meet.  And I just wanted to say to all of them right now, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you.  (Applause.)

There are many actions we in the federal government can take to help improve safety in your communities.  But I believe that community safety begins with moral leadership.  Our police officers, sheriffs and deputies risk their lives every day.  And they’re entitled to an administration that has their back.  (Applause.)

The first step in restoring public safety is affirming our confidence in the men and women charged with upholding our laws.  And I’m going to add justices, judges in that category.  And I’m very proud to have picked Judge Gorsuch, who I think is going to be an outstanding member of the Supreme Court — outstanding.  (Applause.)

So I’d like to begin my remarks with a declaration issued to all of you, and delivered to every member of the law enforcement community all across the United States.  My message today is that you have a true, true friend in the White House.  You have.  (Applause.)  I stand with you.  I support our police.  I support our sheriffs.  And we support the men and women of law enforcement.  (Applause.)

Right now, many communities in America are facing a public safety crisis.  Murders in 2015 experienced their largest single-year increase in nearly half a century.  In 2016, murders in large cities continued to climb by double digits.  In many of our biggest cities, 2016 brought an increase in the number of homicides, rapes, assaults and shootings.  In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone, and the rate so far this year has been even higher.  What is going on in Chicago?

We cannot allow this to continue.  We’ve allowed too many young lives to be claimed — and you see that, you see that all over — claimed by gangs, and too many neighborhoods to be crippled by violence and fear.  Sixty percent of murder victims under the age of 22 are African American.  This is a national tragedy, and it requires national action.  This violence must end, and we must all work together to end it.

trump-phone-banner

Whether a child lives in Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, or anywhere in our country, he or she has the right to grow up in safety and in peace.  No one in America should be punished because of the city where he or she is born.  Every child in America should be able to play outside without fear, walk home without danger, and attend a school without being worried about drugs or gangs or violence.

So many lives and so many people have been cut short.  Their potential, their life has been cut short.  So much potential has been sidelined.  And so many dreams have been shattered and broken, totally broken.

It’s time to stop the drugs from pouring into our country.  And, by the way, we will do that.  And I will say this:  General, now Secretary, Kelly will be the man to do it, and we will give him a wall.  And it will be a real wall.  (Applause.)  And a lot of things will happen very positively for your cities, your states, believe me.  The wall is getting designed right now.  A lot of people say, oh, oh, Trump was only kidding with the wall.  I wasn’t kidding.  I don’t kid.  I don’t kid.  I watch this, and they say I was kidding.  No, I don’t kid.

I don’t kid about things like that, I can tell you.  No, we will have a wall.  It will be a great wall, and it will do a lot of — will be a big help.  Just ask Israel about walls.  Do walls work?  Just ask Israel.  They work — if it’s properly done.

It’s time to dismantle the gangs terrorizing our citizens, and it’s time to ensure that every young American can be raised in an environment of decency, dignity, love and support.  You have asked for the resources, tools and support you need to get the job done.  We will do whatever we can to help you meet those demands.  That includes a zero tolerance policy for acts of violence against law enforcement.  (Applause.)  We all see what happens.  We all see what happens and what’s been happening to you.  It’s not fair.

We must protect those who protect us.  The number of officers shot and killed in the line of duty last year increased by 56 percent from the year before.  Last year, in Dallas, police officers were targeted for execution –- think of this.  Who ever heard of this?  They were targeted for execution.  Twelve were shot and five were killed.  These heroic officers died as they lived -– protecting the innocent, rushing into danger, risking their lives for people they did not even know, but for people that they were determined to save.  Hats off to you people.

These slain officers are an eternal monument to all of the men and women who protect our streets and serve our public.  We will not forget them, and we will not forget all of the others who made that final sacrifice in the line of duty.

God has blessed our nation to put these heroes among us.  Those who serve in law enforcement work long hours.  You work long hours.  I know so many sheriffs, so many chiefs, so many police who work long hours and dangerous hours, oftentimes in difficult conditions and for not that much pay relative to what you’re doing.  They do it because they care.

We must work with them, not against them.  They’re working against you.  For many years they’ve been working against you.  We must support them, not undermine them.  And instead of division and disunity — and which is so much disunity — we must build bridges of partnership and of trust.  Those who demonize law enforcement or who use the actions of a few to discredit the service of many are hurting the very people they say that they want to help.  When policing is reduced, crime is increased, and our poorest citizens suffer the most.  And I see it all the time.  When the number of police goes down, crime goes up.

To build needed trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve, it is not enough for us to merely talk to each other.  We must listen to each other.  All of us share the view that those in uniform must be held to the highest possible standard of conduct — so important.

You’re the role models to young Americans all across this country, many of whom want to go into law enforcement, many of whom want to be a sheriff or a police chief, many of whom — they have great respect for you.  Tremendous respect.  You don’t even realize it, but I will tell you, they have great respect and admiration for the people in this room and the people that you represent.  And don’t let anyone ever tell you different.  Don’t let the dishonest media try and convince you that it’s different than that, because it’s not.  (Applause.)

That is why our commitment to law and law enforcement also includes ensuring that we are giving departments the resources they need to train, recruit and retain talent.  As part of our commitment to safe communities, we will also work to address the mental health crisis.  Prisons should not be a substitute for treatment.  We will fight to increase access to life-saving treatment to battle the addiction to drugs, which is afflicting our nation like never ever before — ever.  (Applause.)

I’ve been here two weeks.  I’ve met a lot of law enforcement officials.  Yesterday, I brought them into the Oval Office.  I asked a group, what impact do drugs have in terms of a percentage on crime?  They said, 75 to 80 percent.  That’s pretty sad.  We’re going to stop the drugs from pouring in.  We’re going to stop those drugs from poisoning our youth, from poisoning our people.  We’re going to be ruthless in that fight.  We have no choice.  (Applause.)

And we’re going to take that fight to the drug cartels and work to liberate our communities from their terrible grip of violence.  You have the power and knowledge to tell General Kelly — now Secretary Kelly — who the illegal immigrant gang members are.  Now, you have that power because you know them, you’re there, you’re local.  You know the illegals, you know them by their first name, you know them by their nicknames.  You have that power.  The federal government can never be that precise.  But you’re in the neighborhoods — you know the bad ones, you know the good ones.

I want you to turn in the bad ones.  Call Secretary Kelly’s representatives and we’ll get them out of our country and bring them back where they came from, and we’ll do it fast.  You have to call up the federal government, Homeland Security, because so much of the problems — you look at Chicago and you look at other places.  So many of the problems are caused by gang members, many of whom are not even legally in our country.

And we will work with you on the frontlines to keep America safe from terrorism, which is what I began this with.  Terrorism — a tremendous threat, far greater than people in our country understand.  Believe me.  I’ve learned a lot in the last two weeks.  And terrorism is a far greater threat than the people of our country understand.  But we’re going to take care of it.  We’re going to win.  We’re going to take care of it, folks.

Let today be the beginning of a great national partnership.  Let today serve as a great call to action.  And let this moment represent a new beginning in relations between law enforcement and our communities.  I want you to know the American public totally stands with you.  I want you to know the American people support you.  I want you to know how proud we are, truly proud, to know you.

We applaud your efforts.  We thank you for your service.  And we promise that you will always find an open door at the White House — an open invitation to our great cops and sheriffs nationwide.  They’re great people.  You are great people.

Thank you.  God bless you.  And God bless America.  Thank you very much.  Thank you.  (Applause.)

    Break the 9th Circuit into 2 or more new circuit courts of a size comparable to the rest of the circuit courts in the country. Congess can do it. All lower federal courts are created by congess. This is a fleeting opportunity to destroy this radical judicial monster and create more judicial slots for Trump to fill.

        In the book “7 habits of highly successful people,” there is a brief mention of how to spot “intentional misunderstanding” and how to deal with it. I reported to a Manager in a job from years back whom constantly pretended that he couldn’t understand me (in meetings, while I was speaking) and it really had me frustrated for months. After reading the book, I replied to his next flare up of asking me to clarify with “Let’s take it up after the meeting and I’ll explain it so you can understand.” It didn’t help the already toxic relationship, but it stopped the “intentional misunderstanding.”

        The questions are a sophomoric attempt to make Trump look stupid.

        The response to virtually all such questions, like the argument to the 9th Circus, should be, “Get out a basic dictionary and look up the first couple of meanings to each word; then put them together.” That’s what it means! If they still don’t understand, the problem is the questioner/court, not the law or Mr. Trump.

    This is exactly what is happening, and this is one of the reasons why college costs so much now (and why we have admin and profs with very bloated paychecks, and why we have been hiring a lot of foreign profs). And it is starting to seep down into our secondary and primary schools too — we allocate a lot of resources to ESL, and they want more (in fact, they are in the process of changing the curriculum to “better diversify” our schools and make all classes more ESL friendly).

      ESL in America – for older Americans who want to get a HS diploma, for all ages of Americans who want to learn to read, to reach Americans in rural areas and so on – was eclipsed by the social justice “charities” racket and NGO’s who marginalized Americans and funneled ESL to the invaders. Whenever the Federal government “gives grants” to charitable orgs, they end up as an arm of the government.

    The Great Reveal is ongoing and may take years. Like I thought, and many of us thought, he is showing the country just how political the judicial system is. If any of you listened to the oral arguments you would have thought the DoJ lawyer sounded like a buffoon and didnt know what he was talking about. my point is, he didnt even try to win this. Alinsky tactics here (Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules) when push comes to shove they can show a complete bias over obama doing the same thing and the courts doing nothing about it.

      This is a start but near as I can tell it is not secret information aside from the fact that the media ignored it as they always do.

      One of the greatest powers a President has, and the one that truly strikes fear in the hearts of President Trump’s Uniparty enemy is the power to declassify. He can expose the entire corrupt House of Cards to sunlight and God willing, a gust of fresh air that will blow the thing down.

      He can destroy them one-by-one by releasing all the dirty secrets kept hush-hush by the backroom handshakes and corrupt bargains. People have always fell for the talking point that we want both parties to get along and work together bulsh!t and well, they sure did, but not for some noble purpose. They work for bribing votes from the uniformed sheeple, income streams for their sponsors, feathered nests for themselves but nothing to do with the entire purpose of the government’s Constitutional purpose.

      Succeeding Presidents lock down their predecessors records, International incidents between countries and leaders are buried, bribery offers and attempts to influence FedGov never see the light of day, Investigations of FedGov members that are squashed or go nowhere are buttoned up and those that incriminate are likely used for blackmail and manipulation. Almost all intelligence is kept top secret, way more than the narrow mention in the Constitution reserved for security purposes of a free state, and this no doubt includes actions of all our “allies” from Saudi Arabia to Mexico because we don’t want to embarrass them.

      The President is the best informed person in the District of Criminals and I truly believe he holds the fate of every other person in his benevolent hands. Rather than go the normal route of the winks and nods of blackmail, I want the President to go on a transparency initiative, announce that the chips will fall where they may and woe to those that are incriminated.

      And this Russia thing, air it out! Resolution of this is necessary. If the Russian government was involved as all the talking heads keep saying then it should be easy to prove with evidence. Common sense says they did not because (1) such an operation would lead back to them since they know full well the extreme capabilities of Fort Meade and Langley, (2) the alleged “hacks” occurred during the primary season when Trump was still battling Cruz and Bernie was still battling $hillary which points to leaks to affect those campaigns and Trump was nowhere near being a sure thing, (3) the targets of the “hacks” were the DNC and Podesta which points to a Berniebot, and (4) no $hillary or State Department emails which surely the Russians have, were released, again because they know it would lead right back to them.

      This is a serious charge IMHO and a huge opportunity. Practically every single (D)ummycrat and every single GOPe (R)epublicrat warmonger is on record in public forums accusing Russia and Putin by name and none of this is covered by governmental immunity. Ideally each one of them would be charged in either USA courtrooms with intentional libel and required to prove their accusation or be found guilty. This should be a top priority since every single member of the USA government is running at the mouth with no apparent concern of the ramifications, a level of lying indicating total corruption of our government. Taking them down will vastly improve Washington and deter future incidents like this.

    He’s dismantling the Democrat Party right in front of their eyes and they are too stupid to even realize it….every protest from them plays right into his hand……and we are only into week 2 of his presidency…..just think how different things will be in 8 years. MAGA!
    I love how they use the Alynsky playbook against them…LOL….I feel the hand of Bannon at play….God how I wish Andrew could have been here….but then in a way I guess he still is….as the banner at the top of the page states: “I want you to be Andrew Breitbart” and each and every one of us here is a small piece of Andrew.
    God Bless president Trump and his family and staff.

    Gonna float this again.

    Under a possible 9th Circuit precedent, couldn’t a Trump federal judge ‘order’ him to suspend the entire immigration system, based on some bogus suit?

    I have this dream that President Trump would walk into that courtroom, with quite a few security advisors, like the head of the CIA, the head of the NSA, the head of Military Intelligence, several Generals, quite a number of LEO’s. Also the top lawyers in the USA.

    And say, “this is turning into a political trial against the Office of the President of the United States.

    Since I currently fill that high Office, I have every right to be here to defend that Office. If I stand accused, I have a constitutional right to face my accusers.

    I am not in contempt of this court, but I do have contempt for anyone who swears to uphold the Constitution and the Law of the United States and then uses the court system to attempt to break it down. We have a Legislature to make laws. Making laws is not the purpose of the Courts.

    Every person here speaking, including the judges involved, have taken an oath to uphold the Constitution and the Laws of the United States.

    I have with me just outside, a division of Marine guards. If this travesty of justice is not stopped immediately , I will have them arrest every person here that is attempting to dishonor the Constitution and the Congress, who gave the President the power by law to do exactly what I did.
    Any further discussion on this matter will be considered resisting arrest.

    I have the power to execute the orders to enforce existing laws in the nation, which is why the job of the President is also called “Chief Executive.”

    Your oath to uphold the Constitution and the Law of the United States is hereby enforced.

    You have ten minutes to clear this courtroom.

    What is running on all the media right now is headlined by CCN as:

    “Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch calls Trump’s tweets ‘disheartening’ and “demoralizing”

    This comes second hand from, according to FOX which used the words ‘disheartening’ and ‘demoralizing’:

    “A source on the president’s Supreme Court nomination team told Fox that Gorsuch made the remark in a meeting with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.”

    What the heck is going on now?

          Blumenthal is on TV saying this is what Gorsuch said. Dobbs just stated on Fox Business that Gorsuch needs to make a public apology to Trump. I think he should also offer Trump the opportunity to replace him. Gorsuch may have a PhD from Oxford, but he isn’t street smart to do what he did to Trump.

    If these activist judges were to rule against our Constitution, thus allowing this WA hack to deny the President his given authority to act, & to apply it at his discretion. And being in the interest of national security. Could he not tap into his power to declare a Federal State of Emergency?

    Considering this dangerous legislative overreach- would strip him of the ability to prevent those who’ve declared war on us, from entering this country. And at potential detriment to American citizens. With his cabinet incomplete, & relevant agencies still needing overhauled (c/o petulant & incompetent Democrats).

    Not to mention granting rights to aliens on hostile foreign soil. When the US Constitution does not apply for them. Nor does it afford them special privileges that supersede the POTUS, or even priority over our citizens.

    It should be a crime to abuse their position in making such a mockery of our Constitution.

      True to form, Fox News lives up to SD’s prediction!

      A source on the president’s Supreme Court nomination team told Fox that Judge Neil Gorsuch made the remark in a meeting with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn.

      Blumenthal told reporters after the meeting that Gorsuch had “expressed to me that he is disheartened by the demoralizing and abhorrent comments by president trump about the judiciary.”

      “A source” and then the article proceeds to quote Blumenthal verbatim saying the same thing.

      Fox News’ John Roberts and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

      Oh ok, at least it makes a little sense!

      This is what I have been thinking. The State Department does what it wants all the time. Years ago, they carried out a green card lottery hoax in the former Soviet Union. The things they did were outrageous. People would spend the equivalent of 1 or 2 years’ income to pay for travel costs to the Moscow embassy and the visa, translation and other related costs. Then they would get to the embassy to pick up their visas and would be told by a consulate officer that their signature on the lottery application was forged. This was the hoax. They would keep all the money and send people home devastated by the scam. Often people gave up their jobs, their apartments, borrowed from friends and relatives before they made the journey, expecting to leave right away for the US. Then, they would get slapped in the face at the embassy. It was really criminal. They did this to people from many countries. No judge ever stepped in to stop them. I wrote to many senators about it. I wrote to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Only one person ever answered. I as trying to help out an Armenian family. State seemed to have unilateral power to do whatever they wanted to do.

Trump seems to be conceding to the 9th circuit, as though he is impotent, when he is not. Problem solved. Establishment continues to get what it wants. Trump appears to have tried. He made an effort to keep faith with the voters, but failed. End of story. We are expected to bow down to the politicized liberal court.

    Scroll way down to section (f).
    What President Trump was too polite to point out was the law specifically concerns “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President”. Is does NOT give the President the authority to INCREASE immigration (like some unmentionable traitorous bastard did).
