      The Democrats, MSM, CoC, Koch Brothers etc. are going to die on the immigration sword 🗡 and it will be wonderful to watch!

      I wrote the following thread last night.

      It has gotten worse for Democrats, MSM, RINOs, Globalist, CoC, Koch Brothers etc. since.

      CBS decided to put out their monthly BS poll today. It has the Democrats +4 according to their Generic Ballot. Once you are able to see their internal data, you realize how mortifying their poll is for Democrats.

      The reality according to Gallup’s Party Affiliation Poll is that Democrats are +3 when compared to Republicans. Democrats are at 29% while Republicans are at 26%. Independents are at 43%.

      https://news.gallup.com/poll/15370/party-affiliation.aspx

      When you correct CBS poll’s over sampling, Republicans are actually +1 in the Generic Ballot.

      What is even more mortifying is the data pertaining to illegals crossing the border and what should be done afterwards.

      Once again we see that 3 out of 4 Americans want them incarcerated and sent back to wherever they came from.

      The MSM knows the truth and they are trying to warn their readers of what is about to happen come November. This is the second article in 24 hours that does exactly that.

      From the article linked above:

      You knew it was coming. Eighteen months into the Trump administration and the president’s ostensibly serious critics have finally broken the glass on the “Trump-is-a-Nazi” line of attack.

      But overwrought comparisons to the Nazis are both historically illiterate and an extreme strategic misstep. The president’s critics have crossed a rhetorical line from which there can be no turning back.

      On Friday, an MSNBC commentator extended the Nazi label to every Trump supporter, declaring: “If you vote for Trump then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis, going: ‘You here, you here.'”

      For some bizarre reason, however, Democrats decided that now – five months away from midterm elections, and in the midst of a whirlwind of other headlines – was the time to deploy their rhetorical nuclear option.

      Conversely, sticking with the Nazism line of attack cheapens its effect and, frankly, makes its proponents come off as a little more than unhinged, something perhaps already at play given that a Gallup poll has put Trump at his highest approval rating to date.

      Is this perhaps the last, desperate gasp of the president’s critics? Do they double down and ride the Trump-as-Hitler narrative – and themselves – into the ground until November’s midterms and beyond?

      I can answer the reporter’s question about what this will mean for the Democrat Party come November with the following image:

        Many people forget that VSGPDJT explicitly stated, among other things, that

        1) He would be the law and order president, and

        2) That entire families should be deported together if the parents are here illegally.

        I’m not going to take the time to search for the two times, at least, that I saw him say these things at either a rally or in an interview. Suffice it to say that I watched every rally and every broadcast interview of him on his campaign and anyone who wants to look for these examples among the hundreds of events/interviews can do so and will find them.

        God bless our patriotic President, and all his patriotic supporters! Pray that in God’s good time we will overcome the satanically inspired traitors and seditionists who are laying waste to our beautiful country and harming our citizens.

    Immigration is a national security problem. Latin American governments (including Mexico) are sending colonizers into our nation in complete and utter disregard of our laws. At a minimum, all asylum seekers should be returned to Mexico in compliance with international law.

    Should this continue, we ill lose our southern border in its entirety and the unwelcome colonists will seize control of the elections within the border states.

    Perhaps we should build our wall within Mexico’s territory; a simple wall, barbed wire, machine guns and land mines will suffice.

      Exactly correct MSO. There is very little time left, if any, to halt most immigration, legal and illegal. Diversity and proximity lead to war. Always have throughout history. It is probably too late now. By 2030 or so there will probably no longer be one country in the space we occupy now. The best we can probably hope for is a Yugoslavian solution. The Czechoslovakian solution is probably been lost.

    How about that, Jordan says we should follow the “rule of law” re: immigration. What a concept! And the conservative Goodlatte bill would have passed if Republicans had pushed for it to pass, but no, they didn’t do that. Well, is it really too late for a reasonable bill to get through Congress? As long as there’s Uniparty obstruction I suppose it is, nothing will get done. It will get really amusing if the incoming Mexican President follows through with his aggressive threats to send millions of Mexicans north. That’s a potential Huge Ugly, a crisis for the US like none seen before. The biggest question is how would Democrats/Unipartisans respond?

          1) Republicans NEVER start their negotiations from a rigid-right standpoint, thus the “compromise” ALWAYS ends far left of center

            I watched Lou Dobbs talking about the Goodlatte bill a couple of times right when it was being voted on and the main point was the revised Goodlatte bill was horrible. In Lou’s opinion (and Lou is a border hawk) it didn’t meet the President’s expressed wishes much more than the so called “moderate bill” that Paul Ryan was pushing so hard.

            Both bills were awful, and even though they were bad neither would pass the Senate, anyway. All one huge exercise in futility.

            PDJT was right. Wait till after the elections. Hopefully we will have picked up more seats.

    I posted this earlier on the “open topics” thread and do so again here in hopes of motivating others to follow suit regarding this very important situation.

    * * *

    Today I sent the following emails to “Get Involved – Contact the White house” at https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/

    First email:

    Stop accepting asylum claims from illegal border crossers. We have consulates all over Mexico and Latin America where asylum claims can and should be made, and they can as well be made at the ports of entry without landing on U.S. soil. Indeed, under international law, those traveling through Mexico from Central America must seek refuge in the “first safe country” – Mexico – which is defying that law by refusing asylum requests and facilitating their passage to the U.S.

    Publish this for the world to see.

    Second email:

    Reducing Illegal Alien Workers

    To discourage and reverse the illegal practice of hiring illegal aliens I would like to see much greater enforcement of the following:

    The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 which requires employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of their employees, and which created criminal and civil sanctions for employment related violations.

    26 U.S. Code § 7202 – Willful failure to collect or pay over tax

    Any person required under this title to collect, account for, and pay over any tax imposed by this title who willfully fails to collect or truthfully account for and pay over such tax shall, in addition to other penalties provided by law, be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than $10,000, or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution.

    18 U.S. Code § 371 – Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud United States

    If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

    Of course, here I speak to the conspiracy to defraud the government of payroll taxes.

    It therefore seems to me that if this administration were to criminally prosecute owners and officers of corporations, and if these prosecutions became well publicized, then a) this illegal practice would be drastically curtailed, b) there would be a significant increase in self deportations, and c) there would be a significant decrease in migrants coming here illegally merely for economic purposes.

    There were laws BEFORE dapa and daca.

    When the first of those persons actually crossed our border, they committed a crime.

    Then our Congresspersons, many of whom are STILL there, BROKE the then-LAWS by AIDING, ABETTING & HARBORING fugitives. They used our taxpayer dollars to do this AGAINST us.

    Many Congressmen and Congresswomen in House and Senate are literally criminals themselves.

    Now they pretend that DACA is a legitimate concern, when it never was legal in the first place.

    And they “strut and fret their hour upon the stage” just like the actors that they ALL are.

    Instead of following the law, they break it. And then parade around with “fixes for daca” when the only real “fix” is the LAW that already IS, and the arrest of those who aided and abetted and illegally funded the harboring of criminals.

    Pres. Trump has said what I and many of you have said: no one will be coming over the border AT ALL and all parents will be sought out to find their child(children) and right off to Mexico. No courts, no judges. That is what most of us want and thank God he is saying the same thing. They have no rights, so why a judge or court? They have no rights to be here without proper document/ permit/ visa to be here. However, with the proper document they don’t have to come over the border like this, but enter properly by bus or train or plane. Otherwise they can’t come in no matter what they plead (which as we just heard from Jordan 80% could not prove asylum. YEA! Guess Jordan has head about Trump’s statement that they stop talking about immigration, put is on hold, and then when we have more than enough republicans after Nov. election, then we can discuss. But I think right now NO allowances to anyone to come across our border. This way ICE will also get more agents with funds taken from our Coast Guard and so with more ICE a whole lot more illegals will be deported whether a sanctuary city or state doesn’t want it. No reason to send them on buses or trains or plane to which other country and let Mexico deal with them and how they get back to their own countries because you can be sure Mexico won’t allow them to stay. Things are shaping up, so hang in there for more fun!

On top pf all that he speaks VERY directly and means what he says, then follows up and acts in the manner he said he would act.

    Every one else in Congress pales by comparison. Theyre all “politicians’, who have been conditioned to be mealy-mouthed, not offend anyone (POTUS rarely worries about that), sound “strong” on certain issues but only in the right circumstances, but then figure out how to avoid acting on anything definitive.

    Please explain to me why any immigration legislation is being discussed at the present time. As long as Ryan is speaker there’s no hope of a clean comprehensive bill that will actually benefit the US. Add to that the fact anything of any good will not be supported by Democrats. Jordan is my Rep and he’s done an excellent job but this is just political pandering to his constituents who want this fixed. The only fix we can be part of is to give President Trump a majority Congress. There will be some Rino’s in the mix but Trump will handle them. It’s foolish to think we can sort them all out in one election cycle anyway.

    If the GOP pushes an immigration bill through it will be dealt with by Democrats as at least one of the following…
    A) Inadequate for the needs of immigrants and lacking fundamental fairness.
    B) A betrayal of Trump’s base by the POTUS and GOP leadership.
    C) A cynical attempt at defusing a politically disastrous situation brought on by racist Republicans.
    D) An innovative and fair solution to a long standing problem for which the GOP should be applauded.

    Machiavelli would almost certainly advise the GOP no change be made before November election day.
    I personally think Trump is handling the situation very well from a political perspective.
