    I wonder how the Main Sewer Media is going to fudge these facts up?

      The objective is simple: stop the invasion from crossing the border. This will be the litmus test for DHS Secretary Nielsen. I anticipate the President has a plan at the ready to remove and to replace her at the first sign of weakness or incompetence.

      Their greatest fear is playing out right in front of their eyes! Nationalism is on the rise in Tijuana and Mexico City. AMLO assumes his position on December 1st. The new USMCA is going to raise the standard of living not only in the auto sector (45% of Mexican workers will earn $16 an hour) but throughout other sectors as well in order to compete.

      As another Treeper said last night, when you go from $0.60 and hour to $16 an hour, you have literally hit the jackpot 🎰. The last thing in the world they want is for illegals taking away jobs and opportunities from Mexicans. They would literally KILL before they allow that to happen.

      The Cartel are NOT happy with these illegals. Yes some may find employment with them but look at what they have caused to happen. You have the US Military and the Coast Guard at the border. It makes it that much more difficult to smuggle drugs and humans across the border. Fake News says the military will be leaving by Christmas. The Secretary made it damn clear that they are full of crap 💩. They will remain there for as long as necessary.

      Many of these migrants will flea back to their countries knowing that if they don’t, they will become a statistic for murders in Mexico 🇲🇽, if they decide to even count them. Their lives are truly on the line because there are billions at stake for the Cartel and jackpots for the everyday Mexican.

        These people have everything to lose! That is a deadly recipe.

        From the article linked above:

        Instead of meeting people offering free rides and meals, migrants arriving in the border city earlier this week were greeted instead by hundreds of Tijuana residents protesting their presence with angry chants of “Mexico first!”

        The protest organizers echoed language used by U.S. President Donald Trump. “Mexico has always opened its doors to Central Americans to legal and organized migration but not to the illegal invasion that’s currently taking place,” said organizer Jesus Eduardo Burgos Gomez.

        EVENTUALLY THE POLICE WILL LOOK THE OTHER WAY!

        At one point during the protest, a group of residents tried to rush one of the shelters housing migrants but Mexican police in riot gear ultimately held them back.

                Interviews to assess credible fear are conducted almost immediately after an asylum request is made, often at the border or in detention facilities by immigration agents or asylum officers, and most applicants easily clear that hurdle. Between July and September of 2016, U.S. asylum officers accepted nearly 88 percent of the claims of credible fear, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services data.

            I agree. There is a symbiotic relationship between border towns. I recall hearing about Mexican resident children who were allowed to cross over to the US side (Texas) and attend school. At the end of each day they went back to their home in Mexico.

            Also, the word “migrant” used to have a different meaning. It implied a migrant worker and family who came over for seasonal work or to fulfill a temporary need (agriculture, labor, etc) and moved with the differing work locations and even went back to their home country during down times. I taught some of these children in specific federally subsidized programs for “migrant students” where they stayed for maybe 1-3 months before they left.

    The Dirty Little “Secret”:

    The reason that politician supporters of unrestricted immigration” want it is so that they and/or their big money campaign contributors, such as the Crony Fascism and Serf Labor gang can have low cost, to them, serf labor. They would probably prefer actual out-and-out slaves but that is illegal. Unrestricted immigration Democrats also want it so that those who are now illegal here can become legal and vote for them, if they aren’t voting for them already.

    Does anyone think that any of these unrestricted immigration politicians actually care one wit otherwise for the illegals. Does anyone think that any of the unrestricted immigration politicians are going to invite Indios and Mezclados to join their elite/exclusive golf clubs? Come to live in their gated communities, other than as low paid serf servants? Invite them to their yachts, other than as low paid serf deck hands and/or serf servants? Invite them to their cocktail parties? Introduce them to their daughters?

    The big majority of those who have come here/will come here are the lower class Indios and Mezclados, not the Spanish descendant fair-skinned ruling classes. This is a form of ethnic cleansing by these ruling classes. So these unrestricted immigration politicians are aiding and abetting and facilitating ethnic cleansing. If the U.N. were not such a joke, they would all be standing trial for trying to reintroduce a form of latter-day-slavery into the United States and for the mass ethnic cleansing of Mexico and south of lower class Indios and Mezclados.

    • As a building contractor, homes, additions, renovations, etc… upon finishing a 52 unit section 8 gutting to build high end condos which was a three year job, I returned to my client list for work.

      Things were good, for two years. In 2006 over 25,000 mexican contractors, replete with their own crews, trucks with mexican plates, wives, kids, etc… showed up over a period of only 6 to 8 months.

      They were BROUGHT in by state government. Instant “sanctuary” city.

      They are all still here, along with many more. The city was instantly flipped solid blue as tons of fake liberals arrived at the same time along with a Pennsylvania pencil neck who ran, and won, the office of mayor. His first statement was a “thank you for electing me, BUT… the city isn’t gay enough. We have to work to be more inclusive.”

      All. By. Design. 2006. I bid 44 jobs that year, only won contract on 11. I blame those clients as well. I’m one out of a dozen guys I know that made it through, but I took on plenty of real estate management contracts as well to do so.

      All. By. Design. They created a little mexico suburb close to downtown, which is basically a no go zone for “whitey” now, with intense criminal and drug activity too.

        When I was down in DC for the Inauguration, I met a contractor from Texas who had volunteered to help the campaign. He built custom homes (framing), charging about $13/sq. ft. He had a crew of about 50 paid his employees well and made an OK profit.

        He said once the illegals came in, he had to cut his workforce back to about a dozen. No insurance, they could not read blueprints, did not comply with OSHA, etc. They charged about $3/sq./ft. Of course, it was substandard, sloppy work (they would use 2 nails where he would use 4, etc), but most people wanted CHEAP.

      realgary – couple years ago, a female Treeper had enough of that photo with Susan Rice and Samantha Power gazing pensively at Barky for some decision on some matter.

      Mrs Treeper commented

      Similar to the point you’re making.

    DHS Secretary Nielsen just doesn’t give to me the impression that she is STRONG and Tough , she seems caring and soft … and trying to “act tough”.

    She is the HEAD of HOMELAND SECURITY! For God’s Sake, we need someone heading up the USA National Security of our WHOLE country that is going to protect the USA!

    And Nielsen just doesn’t seem to come across with that type of temperament .

    I’m not insulting her, because I’m a guy, and I would suck at that job, I’m not a military type guy … and I know my limitations.

    Why did Trump give her the job? Who advised him to do it? Was it Kelly? Or someone else?

    I hope Trump gets rid of her and gets someone SUPER Tough who will protect our country and stand up the Leftists and Illegals!

      What happened to that Homan guy?

      Wasn’t he head of the Border Patrol Agents association? Is the skinny that Trump will nominate him to replace Nielson, but he’ll have to be confirmed?

      He’s another big, tough-looking guy like Whitaker.

    Dutchman, You MISSED the real beauty of the ‘most will get phoney I.D.S, and so WILL be paying SS taxes’

    IF an ilegal stole your SS number (and remember the “The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the law may not be used against many illegal workers who used false Social Security numbers to get jobs.” -NYT)

    Illegal immigrants cited in theft of 39 million Social Security Numbers
    “Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group….” AND the IRS does not notify either Homeland Security OR the victim of the ID theft.

    So what happens when IRS gets taxes paid using the same SS# but from two different addresses?

    The money goes into limbo and YOU LOSE THE SS BENEFITS FROM THE TAX COLLECTED. Depending on how young you were when the ID theft started, you could lose a major portion of the benefits you are entitled to.

    “[…] Every year, nearly 9 million people pay their taxes using the wrong Social Security number. The name used on W-2 tax forms used by employers doesn’t match the name on file with the Social Security Administration. There can be many reasons why — a data entry typo by a human resources department, a woman changes her name after marriage and forgets to report it, or a man uses someone else’s SSN to get a job.

    Social Security calls this a “no-match” situation. When this happens, the Social Security Administration collects the money, but the wage credits go into limbo. They don’t end up on anyone’s annual Social Security statement, they end up in something called the Earnings Suspense File. Since 1984, when the Social Security card employment verification requirement kicked in, nearly $500 billion in wages has ended up in that file.

    Who are all these people paying their taxes using the wrong SSN? Neither Social Security nor the IRS has ever studied this issue in great detail. But there are clear indications that many — if not most — of the 9 million mismatches are immigrants using the wrong SSN. One study by Social Security indicates no-match payments come most frequently from agricultural and restaurant industries, for example…

    Victims often don’t have any idea they’re sharing their identity with an immigrant, because there’s no way to find out. Social Security won’t tell you if someone else is using your SSN. The extra earnings don’t end up on your annual Social Security statement, because they are designated to the Earnings Suspense File instead. Ditto for the Internal Revenue Service. The misuse isn’t revealed in personal credit reports, either. If somebody uses your number to get a credit card or car loan, the nation’s credit bureaus create a new credit file instead of alerting you to the misuse.[…]” — NBC NEWS

      First time I’ve heard of the “Earnings Suspense File.” However, it sounds like an excellent source for wall funding, since it isn’t budgeted for anything else.

      Stopping it? Don’t be naive. Most of these people will be allowed into our country as soon as we instruct them in the proper way of entering the USA. “Go to a Port of Entry and apply for asylum”.

      Trump is failing on the immigration issue. He’s trying but the judges and 99% of the Swamp are all pushing against him.

    Have no idea that the job has been offered, but I’d really like to see the President get rid of her and appoint Allen West to that job. Maybe he has and West turned it down. But, I see West as a guy that will do the job. Do it right. His confirmation ‘should’ be a breeze and if he’s what I hope he is, the caravan is stopped and he’s on the same page as the President and us.

    Trump would be one term President. Bad not only for the USA, but for the whole world.

    His failure would be a bloodbath for “conservatism” across the globe.

    Reason? It’s simple. He is not Obama.

    Meaning: Obama picked The Best people for the job(had no executive experience whatsoever) to implement his agenda, and stood rock solid behind them. Undeterred.
    Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Carl Sunstine, Mrs. Powell(ambassador to UN), his Education Secratory, ect…ect…
    I made my point.

    Trump(with his lifelong executive experience) do not know who to pick people. As a result he creates stunts more then results. Example: Gen. Kelly, Sec. Neilson, Gen. Mattis, Gen. McMaster, Nikki Haley, Rex Tillerson, Gary Cohn, Dina Powell, Anthony Scaramucci(that was a beauty), Reince Prebus, Paul Ryan & Mitch(star attractions) and Elaine Chao(wow), ect….ect….My point is; who from the list above did not oppose him before appointed????? What’s the point badmouthing them afterwards other then creating unnecessary disturbances????

    My question is; where is Corey Lewandowski, Hope Hicks, Bannon, ect???

    Why can’t he protect them???

    Excerpt:

    If you truly believe (and by the way I do believe) that the IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT gives the President near-absolute, plenary authority to act on matters of immigration with the only remedy being impeachment then the correct answer to this judge lies right here:

    [image]

    Or, if you wish to be a bit more-polite: “He has made his decision; now let him enforce it.”

    President Andrew Jackson uttered essentially those very words in 1832.

    May I point out that in Marbury .v. Madison that John Marshall arrogated to the Supreme Court power it was never granted?

    It has never stopped since and now we have judges issuing out-of-district injunctions — national injunctions that by the very rules of judicial construction and jurisdiction are void on their face.

    Jackson ignored said ruling related to Georgia — not from a lower court, but from the Supreme Court.

    The only remedy available had Congress disagreed would have been to impeach him.

    Well Mr. *******adent? Do you believe what you state in the above text or don’t you?

    If you do then you have a duty under the Constitution to repel the invaders by any means necessary.

    If you do not then you need to ****ing resign, right now, because you are nothing other than a blow-hard piece of crap.

    There is no third option.
